Once again, justice isn’t done in Baltimore County thanks to the state’s attorney

Following our column about Baltimore County Scott Shellenberger taking some time away from the office for ‘exhaustion,’ we see another example of why he wants to make himself scarce around the courthouse.

Back in June, a Baltimore Police officer was charged with assaut and firearms offenses. From all the information revealed in the case, it seemed pretty open and shut for at least some sort of punishment.

But not under SA Shellenberger’s watch.

Instead, that police officer will get off scott free due to ‘lack of evidence.’

Darcy Costello on Twitter: “Baltimore County prosecutors have dismissed criminal charges against a Baltimore Police officer, Thomas Kirby Jr., who was charged in June with assault and firearms offenses.A deputy state’s attorney said there was “insufficient evidence” for trial: https://t.co/0STpamip40 / Twitter”

Folks, this isn’t funny anymore. Our State’s Attorney’s Office is failing us miserably.

This is an office that takes ridiculous plea deals on a very high number of cases. Some reports say 85-90% of the cases that are referred to the SA’s office end up with a plea.

Tack on the number of cases that are either dismissed or never pursued, and you’ll see our point.

We have to ask, what the hell does the state’s attorney’s office actually do for Baltimore County???

We can’t understand how people keep voting Mr. Shellenberger back into office. His track record is abysmal, and his ‘I know better than all of you’ attitude is reprehensible.

Shame on anyone who cast a vote for this man. He simply is not fit for office.
