Appeasing the mob not her job: Krauthammer questions Baltimore prosecutor

Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer questioned the Baltimore prosecutor‘s decision to file charges against six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, saying “her job is  not to bring peace” and her decision “looks like appeasement of the mob.”

“We don’t know if she has the evidence because the report has been given to her confidentially, Krauthammer said Friday on Fox News’ “Special Report.” “So we don’t know what happened inside the van. We don’t know what she was told happened inside the van. . . . We will know when the evidence is out, we will know at trial, we will know, looking back, if this is warranted.”

Krauthammer, a Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist, added that he didn’t understand how the medical examiner could determine that Gray’s death was a homicide or accidental, then criticized Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby for acquiescing to protesters.

“She essentially said to the mob, ‘I will speak on your behalf, I will bring you justice and now you will bring peace,'” he told guest host Shannon Bream. “She doesn’t speak for the mob, and her job is not to bring peace. Her job is to adjudicate these issues without consideration for what’s going to happen outside.”
