Prosecution & the pursuit of justice: Marilyn Mosby

Prosecution & the pursuit of justice: Marilyn Mosby Rob Richardson 41:17 Marilyn Mosby says proof beyond reasonable doubt becomes proof beyond all doubt when seeking justice against officers for violating the law. “The vitriol, the personal and the professional attacks, particularly against black, female prosecutors is unprecedented,” according to Mosby. The individuals making decisions about who’s going to be charged, what they’re going to be charged with, what sentence recommendations they’re going to make — 95% of those prosecutors in this country are white; 79% are white men. As a woman of color, she represents 1% of all elected prosecutors in this country. Mosby’s very existence challenges the status quo. (41:17)
