Uh oh: Charges against Baltimore cops may not stand

According to experts appearing on CNN the charges slapped on the six Baltimore police officers are excessive and will not hold up in the court of law. Glenn explains and reacts on radio today.

WATCH:

CNN reported:

Lawyers for two officers have challenged a key finding of State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby's case: that a knife found on Freddie Gray was legal in Maryland and therefore the officers didn't have a right to arrest Gray. The police investigation found that the knife is illegal under Baltimore city code.

Officials familiar with the probes also say the homicide investigation run by police investigators at most contemplated a manslaughter charge, not second degree murder as Mosby charged one of the officers, Caesar Goodson.

"You know, here's the real problem. And the same thing happened in Ferguson," Glenn said. "And this, I believe this is part of the plan, honestly. It doesn't matter what happens. For instance, the reason why somebody coming in and forcing you to bake a cake for a wedding that you don't want to participate, gay or straight. The reason why that's wrong is because there's no reconciliation. You're forced to do something. And so that plants anger in your heart and you're pissed. It doesn't matter. Like in Ferguson, they cleared the police officer. It didn't matter, did it? It didn't matter. Same thing could happen here in Baltimore. I don't know what happens. But the same thing could happen here in Baltimore. It won't matter. It's hatred planted deep inside of people's hearts. So you do enough of these, even though the charges show or the evidence shows nothing wrong happened here. You haven't had a moment of reconciliation, so that anger is planted there and it just simmers under the surface. So as more and more of these stack up, no matter if the police are cleared or not, it doesn't matter. There's going to be a point where a straw will break the camel's back. And there will be an egregious problem, and it will break it. And all of that anger in all of these cities will rush out and pour under our streets like poison."

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
