2 Officers Charged In Freddie Gray Case Sue Mosby For Defamation

2 Officers Charged In Freddie Gray Case Sue Mosby For Defamation

Two officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray are suing Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby for defamation and invasion of privacy, court records show.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Sgt. Alicia White and Officer William Porter, who are both facing charges of involuntary manslaughter in the 25-year-old’s death last April, filed the lawsuit against Mosby, Baltimore Sheriff’s Office Maj. Sam Cogen, and the state of Maryland in Baltimore Circuit Court on May 2, records show.

The officers claim Mosby and Cogen knew the statement of charges filed against the officers and other statements made by Mosby at her May 1, 2015, news conference announcing the charges “were false.”

“These among other statements were made not for the purpose of prosecuting crimes that had allegedly been committed by White and Porter, but rather for purposes of quelling the riots in Baltimore,” the suit alleges.

The officers had asked that the lawsuit be sealed to “avoid any suggestion” that they were “not complying with the spirit of” a gag order issued in their criminal cases by Circuit Judge Barry G. Williams, and to “avoid any additional pretrial publicity in connection with their upcoming criminal trials.” They said they had to file the lawsuit earlier this month because of statute of limitations concerns.

    It’s always like that when it comes to innocent white officer’s just doing their jobs.
    & Officer Darren Wilson never got an apology from the DOJ after Mike Brown tried to kill him and the whole “hands up” BS was proven to be a LIE. Black people ear not JUST LIKE US….

    The tide is turning on the violent thugs in the USA. A vote for the right person in November will help turn the tables.

    If the obama had a son or 2 or 3 or 4.

    YES! The tide is turning folks, in favor of Law and Order, supporting those that enforce it, and exposing those in power that want anarchy and mob rule.
    Keep praying and fighting!

    State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby is cut out of the same cloth as Hillary Clinton. She is waging war against these police officers to save face by distracting the citizens of Baltimore in a pseudo-quelling of the Baltimore riots. Her actions are shameful. Apparently, she has used the power of her office to rule by fiat in indicting these two police officers. Sounds like she is taking her cues from the Socialist Pied Piper who sleeps in the White House.

    we needa TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY from dees morons dat bees in positions of powers dat dey abuse for dey racist agendas!!!

      I agree wholeheartedly. That’s why, among others, we need to rid ourselves of the likes of Mosby, Obama, Lynch, Clinton, and Jamila Rasheed here in Ferguson Missouri (where I live).

    How sad is all this. This women needs to be fired and thrown into jail for her false statements against these officers.

  11. disqus_L9kdHXsEcd

    That Mosby POS should be indicted for filing false charges

    So glad these officers are fighting back. At some time someone has to stand up and say domestic terrorism isn’t the way and we will not meet the demands of terrorists. If you can’t be a strong leader, step down. Stop throwing LEOs under the bus for doing their damn jobs!

      Killing a person while they are in custody isn’t “doing their damn jobs”

      • dsmlstanl

        You weren’t there and you don’t know what happened. The filed false charges against the officers to get the domestic terrorists to stop rioting. They didn’t kill anyone, he died in the back of the van. The truth is he should have been doing hard time for all the other crap he had done and he wouldn’t have been arrested again.

          Those COPS gave Freddie Gray a rough ride. Baltimore city police has a long history of doing that along with other police departments, Philly being just one other. They were responsible for the death of Freddie Gray. And you are incorrect, the prosecutor is protecting those cops. She hasn’t charged not one of them correctly and every one of them will walk. This is just another tactic used by prosecutors to give the illusion they are holding officers accountable for misconduct. Check out Alvarez in chicago, who did a very similar thing.

          • dsmlstanl

            I wasn’t aware that someone else was present at the time and you should ask to testify about what you know.

          • ahaz

            Why don’t you tell me what happened. Explain to me how a man entered a police. An and leaves it with a severed spine. Don’t be dense, everyone knows what happened and the DA is covering the officers asses by mis-charging them.

            He wouldn’t have even been arrested if he wasn’t selling heroin to children.

      • Repub Lican

        They didn’t kill that stupid idiot he was in the back of the van banging his own head
