On Tuesday April 28th, just two days prior to announcing charges against the Baltimore Six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, Marilyn Mosby gave a speech where she stated: “so we will pursue, justice by any and all means necessary” (video segment @1:40):
On Wednesday April 29th Baltimore Police Chief Batts was told by sources from the State Attorney office that Mosby was going to make an announcement by the end of the week. To the surprise of the investigative team Batts gave Mosby’s office the investigative report on Thursday April 30th, even before it was completed.
The same urgency message was relayed to the city Medical Examiner.

However, on the morning of Friday May 1st, the Medical Examiner signed off on a copy of his report and included the cause of death as “homicide”. Oddly, labeling the death as “homicide” while simultaneously stating the “fatal injury occurred inside the transport van“.
It seemed the media did not want to ask how a medical examiner can claim the “fatal injury” occurred specifically inside the van? Nothing in the Mosby probable cause statement identifies how this “fatal injury” could have occurred in the van, let alone DID occur in the van.
Without further review of the investigative report, and without any review or questioning of the ME findings, within a few hours Marilyn Mosby was standing at a podium proudly announcing her direct action charges against the Baltimore Six officers…
