In a juvenile courtroom in Baltimore some little gangbanger is charged with GTA.
The state’s attorney and the public defender discuss what should be done with this little weasel. The state’s attorney, after some serious chin rubbing, decides that giving the defendant another chance would be inline with marilyn mosby’s directives on giving offender’s the benefit of the doubt. In most instances probation and community service are more “restorative” (whatever that is) than detention.
The attorney representing the people of Baltimore and the public defender agree that this lad deserves another chance. Never mind that he is an adept and frequent car thief and burglar. Additionally, never mind that this bozo has NEVER adhered to home confinement and electronic monitoring. The right thing to do…release him to home confinement. “Damn, these folks are easy,” he thinks. “All the BS I’ve been in and I get home confinement. Not for long.”
Later that day he and his posse steal a Jeep and head to Baltimore County to practice their burglary skills.
An alert citizen calls the constabulary advising a suspicious occupied auto.
Baltimore County police officer Amy Caprio is dispatched to investigate the call. A short time latter she is run over and killed by this chump who should have been in custody.
The killer was soon apprehended and a judge at his initial hearing said to the defense attorney…”Your client is a one man crime wave, I’m not sure there’s a facility secure enough to hold him.”
All this grief could have been avoided if marilyn’s minions would only demanded that he be detained.
STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP, WEAR YOUR VEST AND TURN ON YOUR CAMERA!
