U.S. District Court
For The District
Motz/5A 10:00 AM Rearraignment USA v. Ahmad Abdul-Rahim JFM-13-0448 ** Baltimore, Maryland**
I just happened to walk by the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland on Monday, September 23, 2013. I had been looking for a Bank of America, my wallet was light on cash but heavy with plastic, and I had just enjoyed a quick breakfast after using my last dollars. I was on a desultory walk with no particular path to my destination which was my bed at the hotel. I could see the tall building and the logo on top of my hotel from where I was standing enjoying an interesting sculpture. Next to the sculpture was a vehicle that didn’t obviously belong there. I tried to ignore it as I took a few pictures with my camera. As I was looking through the lens, I noticed an imposing building to my left and a fountain in front with plenty of grass on both sides of it. The sculpture, the fountain and the car were providing protection from the east.
I continued walking uphill to see why this building required so much protection. A visitor’s entrance and an employee’s entrance could be seen and I finally realized that this was a Court House.
Since I had nothing to do but sleep, I entered through the visitor’s side to continue being a tourist. Nice displays greeted me and a sign welcomed me to continue on to the third floor. “Why not?” I said to myself. After seeing the displays the, Library was straight ahead. “All you have to do is to sign in,” he explained what I had to do to just look around this law library. What an impressive collection. Almost as impressive as that of the Universidad Santiago de Cali.
I had really nothing in mind to peruse, but I did find something interesting about Thurgood Marshall and other things on Job Discrimination, and Immigration.Oh, I did enter Motz’s/5A. I listened with reverence Judge Motz’s questions and statements to the accused. I had no idea what this case was about but the name of the accused is what made me enter this room. Ahmad Abdul-Rahim.
