Jim Cabezas and Joan Jacobson: Eyes of Justice

The Ivy Bookshop

Despite a childhood affliction that left James Cabezas with the grim knowledge that he might one day go blind, he led a courageous career in law enforcement for more than four decades.

With his vision intact, Jim proudly wore a police uniform, tracking drug dealers, thieves, and an armed robber in the precarious days before Baltimore cops wore bullet proof vests. He performed his duty relentlessly, despite interference from corrupt, racist and inept cops.

While the world’s finest eye doctors kept him from going blind, Jim worked as a deep covert, driving a cab in Baltimore’s notorious red-light district. ­­In a city plagued with gun violence, he wore no firearm - or even a concealed wire- to hunt for mob bosses, while befriending strip club owners and prostitutes.

When he finally got his gun back - after resurfacing as a detective - Jim could no longer see well enough to shoot.  Ever resourceful, he became Maryland’s first investigator of political corruption.
