Marilyn Mosby: Family of bad cops

Perhaps Mosby does know a thing or two of cops. After all, she brags constantly of her family’s law enforcement background.

According to a Boston Globe article at the time, James, Allen and another suspect flashed badges and brandished guns while shaking down drug dealers. The officers identified themselves as “renegade police” and were reportedly drunk. During one robbery, one of the men fired his gun, though nobody was hurt.
