Federal authorities indict alleged gang members, jail guards (Baltimore City)
Baltimore Sun ^ | 4/23/2013 | Ian Duncan and Jessica Anderson

Posted on 04/23/2013 6:37:50 PM PDT by markomalley

A cabal of corrupt corrections officers and members of the Black Guerrilla Family gang enjoyed nearly free rein inside the Baltimore City Detention Center, federal authorities allege, smuggling drugs and cellphones into the jail and having sexual relationships that left four guards pregnant.

An indictment unsealed Tuesday names 25 people — including 13 women working as corrections officers — who face racketeering, drug and money-laundering charges.

It alleges that Tavon White, an inmate known as "Bulldog," took control of the prison gang soon after his arrival in 2009 on an attempted-murder charge. He is accused of building a network of corruption inside of the jail that both enabled a smuggling operation and allowed White to manage gang activity on the city streets.

"This is my jail," White said on an intercepted phone call, according to the indictment. "I'm dead serious. … I make every final call in this jail … and nothing go past me, everything come to me."

The indictment and a related affidavit provide new details about the alleged activities of the Black Guerrilla Family, which Baltimore police have blamed for a spike in drug-related violence on city streets. The documents also list several oversight and security lapses at the detention center.

No, no, no! It's proof positive Maryland needs more stringent leftist extremist so-called "gun control" laws to keep the children safe.

Women have no business guarding men.

Especially women so ugly they can only get laid by prisoners.

Obama voters, Holder’s people, and affirmative action. What could go wrong?

“...Tavon White, an inmate known as ‘Bulldog,’ took control of the prison gang soon after his arrival in 2009...”

If Obama had a son, he would look like Tavon.

Just imagine what happened to the white guys who were unlucky enough to land in this detention center. Robbery, rape, extortion and beatings were waiting for them. This is pretty common in county jails located in cities. You have a large black inmate population and a lot of black officers who know the inmates from the streets. It’s a bad combination.

My impressions of Baltimore are now colored by 4 seasons of The Wire. That was a great show, but very scary in its portrayal of the inner city. I highly recommend it, if you have access to HBO Go or to rental of the DVDs.

The way the world is spinning, I can’t imagine being involved in anyway with the dredge of society. Either as a policeman, prison guard or even a lawyer. Then again, those lawyers seem to thrive on this garbage.

At my daughter’s freshman orientation at Loyala, they told us that Baltimore police would call university police if they arrested a student, so that the student could be placed in the university lock-up instead of the city jail.

The universities, government, and the hospitals are Baltimore’s economy - wouldn’t do to have a student charged with drunk and disorderly raped or killed in jail.
