Mosby's 'rush to judgment'

The riots in Baltimore and the arrest of six police officers will be remembered for two things ("Six Baltimore police officers charged in Freddie Gray's death," May 2).

One is the inadequate response of Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who chose to endanger her own police then acquiesced in the widespread damage to what she deemed was just property.

Second is what some legal scholars are calling prosecutorial misconduct by city State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby, who made fundamental errors in her rush to judgment in bringing charges. In doing so, she has opened herself up for attacks that will help the defendants and won't serve the ends of justice.
