Apparently the Fraternal Order of Police is calling for Marilyn Mosby to recuse herself from the Freddie Gray case.

Among the usual “you talk to the media too much!” and “you know the attorney of the victim!” whining was this gem:

“Most importantly, it is clear that your husband’s political future will be directly impacted, for better or for worse, by the outcome of your investigation.”

Assholes, her husband is a councilman. Every damn case she is involved with has this potential.

And the FOP donates to other other candidates seeking election for various public office, so they are damn dirty hypocrites.

Also, the connection to the Gray’s attorney, Murphy, isn’t relevant as he has been brought on for a CIVIL case, not the criminal one.

Fucking douches. I’m going to go to bed and seethe until I fall asleep.

You know, my father hates unions. I try to argue the point that they serve a very important purpose. But in situations like these, I can’t help but see his point.

ETA: Apparently the formal letter asking her to recuse herself arrive minutes before she pressed the charges. I hope she laughed like Ursula the Sea Witch* when she read that letter.
