Baltimore Must Address False Arrest Problem!

180 Signatures Goal: 250

Since March 2004, 30,000 people in Baltimore City have been arrested but not charged with any crime. Prosecutors at Central Booking routinely review the cases and decline to file criminal charges. After being dehumanized, demoralized, criminally processed, housed in overcrowded holding cells, and unnecessarily disrupted from their families and jobs, the arrestees are routinely released and sent on their way. Due to this sudden increase in unjustified arrests, Baltimore citizens are terrified. We demand that the state legislature and federal agencies investigate this matter thoroughly and bring healing to the community.
