Besides gift-card-grabbing ex-Mayor Sheila Dixon gunning for her seat, Il Mayore is taking heat for a press conference she gave this week, announcing that the police department would have new riot gear “should there be additional unrest following the verdicts in the Freddie Gray case.” With messages like that coming from the mayor’s office, do we even need to bother with trials for the officers accused of killing Gray, or should we let them off now?
