Best Don Quixote: Marilyn Mosby

Pretty much everyone is down on the top prosecutor these days. She set out to get convictions against the officers charged with Freddie Gray’s death—and got beat again and again and again. It was brutal. And winning is important, but when you can’t win, fighting the fight still matters. Mosby may have thought that she could stab the giant of injustice with her lance, but when it got caught in the windmill and took her for a brutal spin, she just might have seen what the protesters have been chanting all along: “The whole damn system is guilty as hell.” If she can survive politically, Mosby may just come back and surprise us all.
