This study is an overview of how black people are processed through the criminal justice system in Maryland, with a case study of the District Court system in Salisbury. The purpose of this project is not to definitively say that the administration oflaw in Salisbury is totally just or unjust, but is rather akin to a sonar ping as the map of the partiality of our court systems is revealed. My hypothesis is that if the color of your skin is black, you will enter and pass through the criminal justice system in Salisbury in a different and markedly worse way than someone white.
