Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced criminal charges Friday, against the six police officers connected with the death of 25-year old Freddie Gray. After a week of protests that periodically turned violent, the statement was met with cheers from Baltimore’s black community and sparked a new round of rallies in the city. We’ll discuss the facts of the case with Rep Donna Edwards (D-MD), who is also running in 2016 to replace retiring Senator Barbara Mikulski, followed by the attorney for the family of Freddie Gray, Billy Murphy.
