David A. Graham – “A Grand Jury (Mostly) Backs Marilyn Mosby on Freddie Gray’s Death” – The Atlantic

“Mosby didn’t offer any comment on the dropped false imprisonment charge on Thursday. Earlier this month, I spoke with David Jaros, an associate professor at the University of Baltimore School of Law, who noted that a false-imprisonment charge in a case like this was unusual. While he said it could prove to be a useful tool for prosecutors in trying to tamp down police abuse, he also doubted that prosecutors would use it. “At the end of the day, prosecutors want police officers out there making arrests. I think most prosecutors think the solution to being arrested for actions that are not a crime is simply that [arrestees] get released,” he told me.”
