Baltimore Cop: 'Mosby Caused This Incredible Spike in Crime'
A Baltimore police officer spoke out tonight on "Hannity," blaming Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby's actions for the crime wave plaguing the city.
Choosing to conceal his identity, the officer was asked for his response to Mosby's recent defense of her relationship with the police.
Earlier this week, Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins asked Mosby what she would say to officers who think that she doesn't support them.
"I'm not going to comment on that. I come from five generations of police officers. That's absurd," Mosby replied. "Of course I have -- I work with the police department. We rely on the police department to get these violent repeat offenders off of our streets. That's absurd."
The officer told Sean Hannity that Mosby's relationship with police officers has worsened since the six Baltimore officers were indicted for the death of Freddie Gray.
"You have to wonder if she lives in West Baltimore or the moon, because the moment she stepped in office the relationship with the department, bad as it was, has only gotten 50 times worse since she unjustly indicted these officers,” the officer replied.
Hannity also asked the officer what he thought about Mosby asking cops to target and patrol the area where Gray was arrested.
"The actions of Ms. Mosby caused this incredible spike in crime," the officer replied. "You know, 40 additional mothers are having to wonder why their sons or daughters were murdered, it’s all relative to the injustice that was bestowed upon the police."
"How can you go out there and do your job when you don’t have the back of your mayor or state’s attorney?" the officer asked.
