NR's Andrew McCarthy: Prosecutor in Freddie Gray Case Incompetent

Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby's "incompetence" in the Freddie Gray case should prompt a "second look" at whether legal action against five officers still facing charges should even proceed, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy tells Newsmax TV.

In an interview Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show," McCarthy, a columnist for National Review and author of "Faithless Execution," said "the whole case was really a travesty."

"It's a tragedy not just for the police officers who've been wrongly charged in this case, but also at a time when homicides hit a record number last year in Baltimore — and even nonfatal shooting are up 72 percent — what [Mosby] has done is create a climate where cops have to worry about whether they're going to be prosecuted for doing their job," he charged.

McCarthy's comments come a day after Officer Edward Nero — one of six Baltimore officers charged in Gray's April 2015 death — was acquitted. 

The manslaughter case against another officer ended in a mistrial in December when the jury deadlocked; he's expected to be retried in September. 

"For this prosecutor, this is the second case where she has not succeeded in convicting someone because she doesn't have a case," McCarthy said. "By now somebody whose incompetence had been revealed this way and who would have these kinds of results might take a second look about whether this whole thing ought to proceed any further."
