11:08 pm
people past r theirelease dates and in maryland, that's considered a fourth amendment issue. >> don't meet that standard of establishing probable cause. they are not signed by a judge. they don't have to demonstrate that you committed any crime. >> both men claim if you honor every detainer you hurt public safety. >> if someone bereaves that by interacting with a criminal justice system, they are going to put into a pipeline to deportation, they aren't going to report crimes. >> it was a mistake, and we should have honored the detainer is what the corrections detector said. he feels this case may have fallen through the cracks. >> that basically means, we're going to go back and look at this and make sure if we have charges similar to this, our policy reflect we will cooperate. >> at the high school, stephanie ramirez, wusa 9. >> a d.c. cab driver is behind bars. he's charged with abducting his passengers. so, police tell
