Ex-Governor 'Death Penalty' Ehrlich Scorns Mosby's Indictments

The man who reinstated the death penalty (temporarily) takes issue with the motives of the State's Attorney.

State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby made headlines last Friday with

The announcement — of a total of 28 charges against the six officers — came after weeklong protests demanding that the police be held accountable for the death of Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died of a spinal cord injury sustained while in their custody...An attorney for Baltimore's Fraternal Order of Police called the charges an "egregious rush to judgment." That's to be expected, as the union exists to protect and advocate for police officers.

Today's unnerving Elisabeth Hasselbeck interview consisted of none other than Ex-Maryland Governor Robert 'Bob' Ehrlich (R) who weighs in on whether Mosby should recuse herself from the prosecution case of six police officers culpable in the death of Gray. Ehrlich was the one who reinstated the death penalty and couldn't execute people fast enough. Hasselbeck was simply miffed that Mosby found the results in the Eric Garner and Michael Brown cases to be far less than just.

Today, The Executioner is suddenly worried about parity in this case. That's highly ironic since:

"while an overwhelming majority of Maryland murder victims are black, all 13 men on the state's death row were sentenced to die for killing whites," according to the Washington Post. Now enter Governor-elect Bob Ehrlich, who has no such qualms about throwing the switch on bad guys. Heck, the people of Maryland voted for more executions - and speedier elections to boot - and that's what they shall have. Ehrlich has promised to rescind the moratorium as soon as he takes office in January. And that means that seven people could be knocked off in his first year alone!

The man who ignored the statistics on the disproportionate number of black people on death row is all of a sudden interested in justice? Ehrlich, at the time he took over as governor, faced some very unjust statistics. He is surprisingly concerned about events in Baltimore, yet it wasn't like that when he was governor (2003-2007). Thankfully, Governor O'Malley banned the death penalty because of statistics like this:

Black perpetrators of crimes who killed white victims were nearly 3 times more likely to face the death penalty in Baltimore County than in the city of Baltimore.

That statistic accounts for Bob's demands to change the venue to somewhere outside of Baltimore City.

Naturally, we see that Ehrlich will side with the law enforcement community. He shares their attitude towards African-Americans. He may also be interested in joining the Konservative Klown Kar in 2016. Why not? Everyone seems to be hopping aboard.
