Following Monday's not-guilty verdict for Baltimore Police Officer Edward Nero — charged in the death of Freddie Gray, who died of a spinal cord injury while in police custody last year — conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves to give his two cents (valued at approximately $50 million per year).

"She overcharged this," Limbaugh said of the prosecutor, Maryland State Attorney Marilyn Mosby. "She had to know she wasn’t going to get convictions on very many of these charges. I think the point of making the charge was to satisfy the mob at the time."

"She overcharged to get guilty on something, even if it was just blowing your nose in a no-crossing zone, something like that," he continued. "Her politics were being worn on her sleeve, on her bra strap, you couldn't miss them."
