injustices in the world. Most people go through their lives either not knowing about them or thinking that it couldn’t happen to them. As a Maryland Attorney, my business partner and I routinely see small injustices like a violation of someone’s 4th amendment rights, a violation of someone’s right to an attorney, violation of Miranda, or some technical legal defect. Our job, as attorneys, is to make the government accountable for those violations force the law to prevail.

In Baltimore, unlike most other jurisdictions, a citizen can fill out a piece of paper, make a series of accusations, and file criminal charges against another citizen. Sometimes these complaints even result in the issuance of serious felony charges along with arrest warrants and significant bails for those accused. This all occurs without anything more than a person’s word. No independent evidence is needed. It could happen to anyone.
