Raw Law: An Urban Guide to Criminal Justice (HC) (2011)

A step-by-step guide to the criminal justice system for those who need it most written by a criminal defense attorney who knows this world from the inside out.

Ever been in the wrong place at the wrong time? Do you know someone who has made a mistake they just keep paying for? Whether you need to know how to secure the best public defender, what your rights are when the cops come knocking, or what to do when "Driving While Black"--this is your book.

Raw Law confirms that the justice system is cold and unfair. Black men are wrongfully accused and imprisoned. Cops will support one another, even on misconduct and corruption. The system is anything but just. And Muhammad Ibn Bashir knows this from his own experience as an attorney.

Bashir opens his files and shares real stories with a generation facing very real problems. He defines the legal terms you need to know on the streets and in the courtroom in a way non-lawyers can understand. Raw Law gets inside the minds of every side of the law, and authoritatively addresses the legal issues faced by the hip hop generation and offers advice for how to avoid certain situations and how to learn and respond to others. Here readers will learn the truths and untruths of the justice system and how they can protect themselves from the worst of it. But most of all, they will learn how to follow the first rule of the criminal justice system: avoid it at all costs.
