A state delegate from Baltimore County is drawing criticism for a Facebook comment aimed at county school officials with a fellow delegate saying it evoked lynchings and the interim school superintendent calling it hateful.
Del. Robin Grammer, a Republican, made the comment in a Facebook group called BCPS Parents & Teachers for Equitable Facilities & Portable AC, responding to a post there Friday by Michael Darenberg, a member of the Baltimore County School Board Nominating Commission.
Darenberg suggested that remaining members of disgraced Baltimore County Schools CEO Dallas Dances leadership team should resign, saying: If you do, we stop digging up dirt on you and you can move to another school system and take advantage of them.
No deal, Grammer replied. Hang them high and leave it for the village to see.
Del. Charles Sydnor, a Democrat who also represents Baltimore County, said Grammer and Darenberg should find better ways to criticize school leaders.
He said Grammers allusion to the lynching and public display of schools officials harkens back to a dark period in this states history. He called the rhetoric dangerous and said it left him perplexed given his past work with Grammer including their both supporting a bill this year establishing a Maryland Lynching Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Grammer told The Baltimore Sun on Sunday that his comment which has been removed was absolutely not intended to reference lynching.
What I meant is that I don't believe in cutting deals with criminals so that they can walk away without consequence to terrorize another school system, he wrote in an email to the Sun. The public should clearly see accountability for corruption. No deal.
He did not name anyone he believed was a criminal.

'Hang them high': Baltimore County delegate draws fire for Facebook comment aimed at school officials
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
Sounds like a bunch of guilty grifters thinking he must have been talking about them personally. When you’re scared, every thing edgy looks like a knife. That said, county or government employees of today should never forget whatever you post on a company website may be taken as someone speaking for the company itself. Never treat a company website as one’s own personal Diary or Journal Blog.
Annoying freaks like this guy also post similar violent fantasies on FR.
Oh good God.
Because no person was ever hanged except blacks in America.
So you go along with the perpetually offended privileged class shrinking violets?
Baltimore County used to be a nice place to live (We lived there). Then the Democrats took over and now look at the emerging scandals of incompetence, corruption, screwing around with the educational system, and hiding behind PC crap.
Hey, who do they think they are, Baltimore Democrats?
Much of MD is a lost cause. Grew up there. My family settled in MD in 1660. Today it is a Marxist oligarchy.
The Blight for All strikes again!
