LI: Freddie Gray Trial: The Schadenfreude Edition


From my post over at Legal Insurrection:

I have been rather amused the last 48 hours or so watching the Progressive news media (but I repeat myself) in the aftermath of the hung jury in the “Freddie Gray” trial of Baltimore Police Officer William Porter.

The media’s efforts to avoid acknowledging what an unmitigated disaster this outcome was for much-heralded State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby brings to mind the combat scene between King Arthur and the Black Knight in “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” Even as King Arthur cleaves off the Black Knight’s limbs in succession, the Black Knight adamantly insists “its only a flesh wound!”

Before we get to why this was such a disaster for Mosby, however, it is worth a moment to bask in the schadenfreude of those seeking to defend Ms. Mosby in the aftermath of this Hindenberg-like conflagration.
