City Council President's statement on verdict in police corruption trial
BALTIMORE, MD – "Today's guiltily verdict sends a clear signal that there is zero tolerance for officers who violate the public's trust by breaking the law.
The testimony outlined during the trial was sickening and painful for our city. The despicable and criminal acts that came to light during the course of this trial underscore why I have for years pushed for meaningful and lasting reforms to public safety.
That work will continue at an accelerated pace, as my colleagues and I look to reform policing at the city and state levels. Constitutional policing in Baltimore City is non-negotiable. We will not rest until the department is reformed and citizens receive the type of lawful policing that is their right."
