ACCOUNTABILITY

Former Marine to CNN: When I Fought for USA-I Was ‘Patriot’-When I Fight for My People I’m a ‘Thug'




When the man began walking away, a CNN reporter caught up with him and asked him to explain where his anger comes from. “They tell me we are apart of this country, man. How can we be?” he explained, asking her to look around at the police lined up.

As for the charges against the officers, the man was not satisfied: “We got to stop being pacified every time they throw us a bone where they want us to calm down, man. We need to wait for the end result to come in,” he said.

“I was willing to give my life for this country,” he continued. “When I was in the Marine Corps, they called me a ‘patriot.’ A marine. But now that I’m fighting for my people they call me a fucking ‘thug.’ They called me a ‘thug’ when I fight for my people,” he said. When the reporter recoiled at his cursing, he said he would not “sweeten up” anything.

MOSBY: "The People Voted For Me To Do My Job & Carry Out Justice & That's What I'm Going to Do"

the people of Baltimore voted for me to do my job and to carry out justice – and that’s what I’m going to do.”



After announcing charges for the six officers involved in the arrest and ultimate death of Freddie Gray, Maryland State Attorney Marilyn Mosby sat down for an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon that will air in full tonight during the 10 p.m. ET hour.

When Lemon told Mosby that it’s been a “tough time” for her, “in the spotlight” and “under the microscope,” she responded calmly, “I don’t think it’s tough.The people of Baltimore voted for me to do my job and to carry out justice and that’s what I’m going to do as the state’s attorney for Baltimore city.”

“As a prosecutor, you should not bring charges if you don’t that you have probable cause, that these individuals are responsible for the charges,” Mosby added. She stressed that she comes from five generations of law enforcement and understands “the time, the commitment, the sacrifice that these police officers make, time away from their families on a day-to-day basis, risking their lives for the benefit of our communities.”

But at the same time she said, “Those officers that usurped their authority, you have to be able to hold them accountable because it does a disservice to the really hardworking police officers, so for me it’s about applying justice fairly and accurately to those with or without a badge.”

The danger of documenting the atrocity: Freddie Gray videographer has been arrested at gunpoint

Kevin Moore, the man who filmed Freddie Gray's brutal arrest, has now himself been arrested following "harassment and intimidation" from Baltimore police.

Moore was arrested at gunpoint last night along with two other members of Cop Watch, a group dedicated to filming and documenting police work.

His video of Gray's arrest was shot shortly before the man suffered spinal injuries while in police custody that led to his death.

Moore claims that despite having co-operated with two detectives in the Baltimore Police Department’s Office of Internal Oversight and given them the video, police posted his photo and told the public that he was "wanted for questioning", asking people to identify him.

"What is so important that you have to plaster my picture over the Internet? I've already spoken," Moore said, suggesting that they posted it simply to intimidate him.
