City School Student Found Not Guilty Of Killing Classmate

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A Baltimore City school student is found not guilty of killing a classmate.

According to our media partner, The Baltimore Sun, the jury cleared 18-year-old Donte Crawford of first-degree murder and other charges.

He had been accused of fatally stabbing a 17-year-old classmate at the Renaissance Academy last November.

There is no word yet on why the jury ruled Crawford was not guilty.

    The life of a teenager was taken in a terrible act by a classmate. A knife was used; there was no other weapon involved, or even alleged. The “not guilty” verdict cannot be allowed to stand. Ms. Mosby, who is expected to work as a Prosecutor when she’s not lobbing spiteballs at the Mayor, should file suit in Federal Court since the civil rights of the victim were violated (and were taken from him) by the Kid with his knife.

    That’s second-degree murder, Folks. Not voluntary manslaughter. Not reckless endangerment. What was the jury thinking? It can’t be “self-defense” when there is an unarmed victim from a fatal stabbing. Is this some perverse form of what Georgetown Professor Paul Butler first called “jury nullification.”

    We may be in danger of losing another generation of young people in Baltimore, like the consequences of life and death on the risky streets of Chicago. These young lives matter!
