Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby has accused investigators in the Freddie Gray case against six officers of manufacturing evidence – an allegation that's "poisoned" her relationship with city police amid a crime spike, columnist Chris White writes.  

"What a disaster," the LawNewz columnist writes.

"It is simply the latest example in a pattern of shameless behavior that began last year when she prematurely announced the charges against the six police officers," he argues.

"As a result, she has now almost certainly poisoned whatever relationship she may still have with the Baltimore police department — all amid a huge spike in murders in the city."

At a fiery news conference Wednesday, Mosby vowed to pursue police and court reforms, including the ability for prosecutors to utilize independent investigators, the Baltimore Sun reports. 

But she also blasted unnamed "lead detectives that were completely uncooperative and started a counter-investigation to disprove the state’s case."

"Creating videos to disprove the state’s case without our knowledge, creating notes that were drafted after the case was launched to contradict the medical examiner’s conclusion," she added.

She did not say if she would pursue felony charges.

"Rather than accepting responsibility for  her own failings as a prosecutor, Mosby is again trying to pin everything on the Baltimore police department," White writes.
