Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby Sets Twitter Ablaze After Charges in Freddie Gray Death

“Marilyn Mosby is about to be a national black hero,” HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill tweets

Baltimore State’s attorney Marilyn Mosby has sprung into the national spotlight Friday after she announced charges would be filed against six police officers involved in 25-year-old Freddie Gray’s death.

The 35-year-old spoke in front of City Hall when she announced the charges as voices in the crowd could be heard celebrating.

“I heard your call for ‘no justice, no peace,’” she said. “Your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice on behalf of this young man, those that are angry or hurt or have their own experience of injustice.”

Five of six officers are in custody with charges including second degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, assault in the second degree, secondary manslaughter and more. A warrant has been issued for the officers’ arrest Friday morning.

Soon after the charges were announced, the media was reporting Cosby’s full bio, including The New York Times, Baltimore Sun and NBC News.

And she has also shot up to the top trender on social media.

CNN’s Don Lemon will air his interview with Mosby Friday at 10 p.m. ET on “CNN Tonight.”
