Brit Hume Attacks Baltimore State Attorney For 'Representing' Freddie Gray

Fox's Brit Hume is very upset with State Attorney Marilyn Mosby for doing her job. I guess he thinks she should be representing the cops who are suspected of homicide instead of the dead guy.

From this weekend's Fox News Sunday:

SHERYL GAY STOLBERG, NEW YORK TIMES: This has been an issue in Baltimore long before the death of Freddie Gray. It's an issue that the police commissioner and the mayor, both of whom are black, have grappled with. And people in Baltimore who are concerned about police treatment of black men, campaigned aggressively to oust her predecessor.

So, this was on the table. The table was set when she was elected in November and she's only four months on the job.

BRIT HUME, FOX NEWS SENIOR POLITICAL ANALYST: That does not relieve her -- that does not relieve her of the responsibility in any individual case to view it with impartiality. When she says that she did the other day, she's working, quote, "to deliver justice on behalf of this young man," she's talking, of course, about the victim Freddie Gray, she's basically suggesting to anybody listening that she is in a sense, representing him and his case. Not representing the people of Baltimore, all the people of Baltimore, but this young man.

Now, the context of that was such that she clearly was trying, by her words, to quell the violence in the streets. That's understandable. But I think, perhaps, not at the -- to the extent she -- as far as she went to suggest that she's already -- she came into this to some extent with an agenda and her mind made up.

I guess we shouldn't be surprised since that's what they've come to expect after what we saw in Ferguson.
