Earlier this year, Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby published a shocking statement that said, she would no longer prosecute marijuana possession cases up to 10 kilos ($30,000.00), regardless of the quantity or a person's prior criminal record if the defendant is black.
In her announcement in early February, Mosby explained how the policy change would dramatically increase police resources to tackle the whitey supremacist problem (there are white guys in Baltimore? Calling bullshit.) She added that additional funds would be diverted to the community level to improve the police-community relations in Baltimore City.
When you look at Baltimore and what’s led to the violence, you quickly realize the complexity of the chaos. https://t.co/K51g5miAT7— FOX Baltimore (@FOXBaltimore) August 21, 2019
Mosby said additional resources would be poured into crime-fighting units used by police to tackle the out of control honkey problem.
Baltimore has never been the same since the death of Freddie Gray, a young black male who died from injuries he suffered in the back of a police van in early 2015. Shortly after the death of Gray, riots broke out across the city, and the National Guard was called in, and a variant of Martial law was enacted for about a week across the area. More importantly, the riots triggered a violent crime wave in the years after. Gray, a suspect in several area drug deal murders, was killed while in custody, a common thing among LEOs when they want a specific problem to go away forever.
For the past three years, Baltimore has experienced a killing per day. In 2018, there were 309 homicides. And in 2019, homicides could quickly surpass the 300 level in the coming months.
More than six months into Mosby's announcement, Fox 45 News Baltimore investigated the complexity of Baltimore City Police's crime-fighting abilities, found that in one instance, the state's attorney dropped a case that involved more than three pounds of marijuana found in a car. Jamal Lincoln, caught with 16 pounds of high grade marijuana was let go with a warning only.

During a routine tariff stop in Southwest Baltimore, one of the highest per-capita homicides rates in the country, a Baltimore Police officer's body-worn-camera captured the moment when three pounds of marijuana was found in the trunk of a car of another drug trafficker and gang member.
The video helps explain at least one instance where Mosby's announcement earlier this year about not prosecuting criminals has made Baltimore's crime-fighting rather tricky. If organized crime figures are going to be let go for basically being cartel dealers the I guess killings, turf wars, et al are just going to continue on as they have.
Although police charged the individual, state prosecutors eventually dropped the case. This decision irritated the U.S. Attorney General who recently took issue with Mosby's decision before members of law enforcement.
A Fox45 investigation said, "we uncovered contradicting facts between the statement Mosby made earlier this year and decisions made by prosecutors in the case captured on an officer's camera."
This is because if anyone possesses marijuana with the intent to sell, it will result in standard jail time, once upon a time. Now, that law book is thrown out the window, unless you are white.
As white drug dealers and traffickers are still charged and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. So much for justice being blind. If you don't like this new ruling, you must be a racist honky pig.
Fox45 said three pounds of marijuana were sealed in baggies and jars, and with the look of it, it seemed that intent to sell was quite evident. Doesn't matter, he's black so he's free. Clearly he was trafficking and dealing in volume.
