Protection When You’re in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time

Cop FigureLife can be cold at times. Injustice is an unfortunate reality that plays out for far too many people throughout the United States. Miami is certainly no different. In many ways, it is in fact infamous for this.

Injustice comes in many forms. These include wrongful arrests and mistaken identities. You never know when you could find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time and end up being wrongfully targeted by the police for a crime you didn’t commit. During these instances, it is essential to have quality legal protection.

For example, imagine if you simply happened to be in the vicinity of this recent Miami shooting incident, as detailed in a recent article by Miami News 7 titled “4 police scenes rock Miami Gardens in 1 hour.” The author of the article writes, “Police are investigating several crime scenes after, they said, shots were fired, a man was discovered injured and multiple arrests were made in four separate incidents in Miami Gardens, all within the span of an hour, Tuesday afternoon. According to Miami Gardens Police, the man suffered a visible head injury after he was grazed by a bullet. He was located near the Sunoco gas station at Northwest 27th Avenue and 185th Street. This man was tended to by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and Miami Gardens Police officers and is under investigation. 7News cameras caught the man with a large, white bandage around his head.”

It is no secret that when a suspect can’t immediately be found, racial profiling can often lead to the wrongful arrest of individuals. At that point, fairness goes out of the window and it’s a matter of having experienced lawyers who can protect you from a life-changing injustice of being convicted of a crime you had nothing to do with. The examples of those who haven’t had this legal protection and have suffered are too prevalent to list.
