Liberal lawyer, author and criminal law professor Alan Dershowitz has made the media rounds since Friday’s announcement of multiple charges against the six Baltimore police officers involved in the arrest and transport of Freddie Gray, who died while in custody. And Dershowitz has made no attempt to hide his very strong feelings about the charges that include second degree depraved heart murder, as he told one TV interviewer that there’s ““no plausible, hypothetical, conceivable case for murder.”
On Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg Show, the famed attorney and jurist with a very successful track record as a criminal appellate lawyer, added that Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby over-charged in the Freddie Gray case so egregiously that the result will be a “show trial.”
On Fox and Friends Monday morning, Dershowitz told Steve Doocy that Mosby’s case against the six Baltimore officers was more about crowd control — quelling the riots that have plagued the city — than about ensuring justice is served.

Baltimore’s police union is also questioning the prosecutor’s impartiality, as The Blaze notes. A union spokesman expressed particular concern about a statement by State’s Attorney Mosby that indicated she may have acted out of political considerations as much as anything else.
“To the people of Baltimore and the demonstrators across America: I heard your call for ‘No justice, no peace,’” the prosecutor said. “Your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice on behalf of this young man.”
