The FOP will push back hard on this. You think D'Blasio had it hard in NYC.

Nope. I'm guessing the FOP will keeep this fight in the Court and not in the streets.  They will go to the media with the argument that Mosby should recuse herself and appoint a special prosecutor. After that is resolved, the rest of this fight is going to be in the Courthouse.

How is that inconsistent with what I said?  I said the FOP will go to the media with the argument that she should recuse hereself and after that issue is resolved, the remainder in the fight will be in Court. Its not going to be as bad as what the police did to De Blasio.

Yeah, I know its Baltimore.  ::)

In Eric Garner case, Garner was resisting; he had asthma;  and a grand jury declined to indict the officer that choked Garner to death.  De Blasio drew criticism from New York Police Union because he made a public comment about having to talk to his son about how to interact with the police. The police union felt they were thrown under  the bus. Police officers turned their backs to  De Blasio at some events. Police Union president Lynch made public comments attacking De Blasio.

In Freddie Gray case, there is less wiggle room for the police officer-defendants; they have already been charged; Ms. Mosby is not a mayor, she is a prosecutor; I doubt that she will make any public statements which reflect negatively on the police department during the pendency of this case; and  I doubt that she will make any public ccomments as to the guilt of the police officer-defendants during the pendency of the case, as that would violate her ethical duty as a prosecutor. Moreover, if Ms. Mosby acts professionally, the Baltimore FOP will have to consider how will it look if they publically attack an African-American Prosecutor. Those optics, a term with which you are fond, will not look good for them.


Yeah, the only public fight they are going to have with Ms. Mosby is the one to ger her recused. That is my prediction.

If you don't mind, we would prefer someone white to prosecute this case or, hopefully, drop the charges.

In the letter the FOP asked that the an independent prosecutor be appointed to determine whether charges should be filed. The decision to file charges has already been made.  The FOP could try to  get an court order for Mosby to recuse herself. However, seriously doubt that a Court would grant that motion. The FOP and/or the lawyers for the defendant may file for a change of venue but if successful, a change of venue only moves the trial to someplace in Maryland other than Baltimore. A change of venue does not get a different prosecutor.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/states-attorney-details-roles-of-each-of-6-charged-officers/ar-BBj2LGj?ocid=U305DHP

Here is a look at each of the six officers.

___

OFFICER CAESAR R. GOODSON Jr.

Goodson was the driver of the van that transported Freddie Gray, and he faces the most serious charges. Mosby said Friday that Goodson repeatedly failed — at least five times — to seatbelt Gray in the transport vehicle. Overall, Goodson faces six charges, including "second-degree depraved heart murder," which carries a potential 30-year sentence.

Goodson, 45, has been on the force since 1999, and like two others charged in Gray's death is black. Online court records list the three other officers' race in a category that includes Caucasians and people of Arab descent.

Friends describe Goodson as a family man who likes to watch football and works part time as an auto mechanic at a shop specializing in Saabs. With help, he restored a green Saab convertible, a car one friend says he only takes out a few times a year. He wasn't scheduled to work on the day Gray was arrested but had been asked to work overtime, friends said.

A friend who worked with him as a mechanic said Goodson had hoped to retire in several years.

An obituary for his mother published in the Baltimore Sun in 2012 says his grandfather was a police officer.

___

LT. BRIAN W. RICE

Rice was on bike patrol when he made eye contact with Freddie Gray on a Baltimore street April 12. Gray ran, and Rice pursued him. Bike patrol officers Garrett Miller and Edward Nero joined the pursuit.

Rice, 41, is the most senior officer to be charged. He joined the police force in 1997 and was promoted to lieutenant in 2011, police said. Records obtained by The Associated Press from a sheriff's department and court show he was hospitalized in April 2012 following concerns about his mental health. Worries about his stability led deputies to confiscate both his official and personal guns, and his commanding officer was called. It was not immediately clear whether or when all of Rice's guns were returned.

___

OFFICER GARRETT E. MILLER AND OFFICER EDWARD M. NERO

Gray surrendered to Miller, 26, and Nero, 29. Miller and Nero handcuffed Gray and put him on the ground. Gray told the officers that he couldn't breathe and requested an inhaler, Mosby said. The two officers, both of whom joined the police force in 2012, sat Gray up and found a folded knife clipped to the inside of his pants pocket, a knife that is lawful under Maryland law, Mosby said. Previously, police have said they found a switchblade.

Mosby said Gray didn't commit any crime, and the officers "illegally arrested Mr. Gray."

The officers put the knife on the sidewalk and then put Gray back down on his stomach, when he started to flail his legs and scream, Mosby said.

Nero held Gray down until Goodson arrived driving a police transport van. Miller, Nero and Rice then put Gray inside.

While Gray was being transported, Miller, Nero and Rice took him out of the wagon and put flex handcuffs and leg shackles on him. After that stop, they put Gray back into the van on his stomach without a seatbelt.

___

OFFICER WILLIAM G. PORTER

At one point during the van ride, Goodson requested help checking on Gray. Porter, 25, who joined the force in 2012, responded. Both he and Goodson checked on Gray. Porter, who is black, helped Gray from the floor to a bench in the van, but neither Goodson nor Porter requested medical attention or put a seatbelt on Gray.

___

SGT. ALICIA D. WHITE

White is the second-highest officer charged in the Gray case. She met the van at its stop to pick up the second person. White, 30, was responsible for investigating two citizen complaints about Gray's arrest. White, who is black, joined the police in 2010 and was recently made a sergeant in January 2015, police said.

During the stop, White, Goodson and Porter saw Gray unresponsive on the floor. White "spoke to the back of Gray's head" but he did not respond, Mosby said. The group did not call for medical assistance.
