Maryland man jailed for alleged role in Baltimore shooting

Detectives with the Baltimore Police reportedly traveled across the state and arrested a man at a traffic stop, claiming he was involved in a shooting in Baltimore earlier this month. The man was jailed without bond and is facing a slew of serious charges, including attempted first and second-degree murder, first and second-degree assault and conspiracy, among other charges.

Is drinking culture reason behind violent crimes?

Statistics posted by The Baltimore Sun show that 3.36 million college students drive under the influence of alcohol each year. The statistics also show that 1,825 college-age students are killed from injuries related to alcohol, including car crashes. Yet, the number of college students who qualify for an alcohol abuse diagnosis is 31 percent. In a high-profile case, one male college student is on trial for the murder of a female college student. Both students had reportedly been drinking heavily. The male college student had been arrested twice for alcohol-related actions. One of those involved violence and happened when the man was in his early 20s. In this incident, he admitted to "at least" 15 drinks, but friends say he most likely had more.

The right to remain silent can invalidate confessions

Whenever someone is arrested and charged with a crime, that person has the right to remain silent. If the person chooses to exercise that right, the police or other investigators are not allowed to continue to harass that person to talk. In situations where authorities ignore this right and invoke a confession or evidence against the person, it can be barred from court.
