Baltimore Mayor: ‘If three black women at three levels can’t get justice,’ where will we get it?

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is starting to sound less like a mayor seeking true justice and more like Al Sharpton.

Speaking at a National Action Network event in Baltimore Thursday, Rawlings-Blake declared she would “get justice for Freddie Gray.”

 

The mayor stated that “the record is clear,” lamenting her battle to bring reform to the Baltimore police department.

“If, with the nation watching, three black women at three different levels can’t get justice and healing for this community, you tell me where we’re going to get it in our country,” she asked, referring to herself, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby and Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

When the mayor is spouting such rhetoric,  can the accused law enforcement officers and the city of Baltimore feel any sense of fairness?
