RCOB Causes Writer’s Block

The monkeys had the keys to the banana plantation. Again.



The “again” part is what is driving me up the wall. Every time I start trying to tell this story, I wind up in RCOB mode; how could the people in charge be so bloody stupid? Yet they are, and here we go again.

So this may have been news last week, but it’s still grating on my hide like a bad rash. I’ll try to write a little, quote a lot, give you a bucket full of links and let you do with it as you will.

And I’m probably a racist for even making the post, just as much for making the “monkeys = gorillas = guerrillas” association, because this is a story about black criminals and an utterly corrupt and wasted justice system in another BRA city. And a criminal gang name Black Guerrilla Family. Sorry, but it’s true. Baltimore MD is a hole. It’s another once proud American city run to wrack and ruin by it’s inhabitants, and it’s a cesspit right up there with Detroit MI and Camden NJ. And for exactly the same reasons.

But ... OMFG. This one just blows me away. As always, added bold and/or italic emphasis is mine.



Baltimore MD: 13 Corrections Officers Indicted

More than a dozen Maryland state prison guards helped a dangerous national gang operate a drug-trafficking and money-laundering scheme from behind bars that involved cash payments, sex and access to fancy cars, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.

Thirteen female corrections officers essentially handed over control of a Baltimore jail to gang leaders, prosecutors said. The officers were charged Tuesday in a federal racketeering indictment.

The indictment described a jailhouse seemingly out of control. Four corrections officers became pregnant by one inmate. Two of them got tattoos of the inmate’s first name, Tavon — one on her neck, the other on a wrist.

The guards allegedly helped leaders of the Black Guerilla Family run their criminal enterprise in jail by smuggling cellphones, prescription pills and other contraband in their underwear, shoes and hair. One gang leader allegedly used proceeds to buy luxury cars, including a Mercedes-Benz and a BMW, which he allowed some of the officers to drive.

“The inmates literally took over ‘the asylum,’ and the detention centers became safe havens for BGF,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Stephen E. Vogt, using shorthand for the prison gang’s name.

It’s a complete non-sequiter for me to even wonder WHY a men’s prison has female guards, but that’s “gender equality”; give the jobs to women even if this is the worst place any woman could ever be.

The Black Guerilla Family was founded in California in the 1960s but now operates nationwide in prisons and on the streets of major U.S. cities, including Baltimore. It arrived in Maryland’s prison system in the 1990s, according to the Justice Department, and is increasingly involved in narcotics trafficking, robbery, assault and homicides. By 2006, federal authorities say, the BGF had become the dominant gang at the Baltimore City Detention Center.

Gary D. Maynard, head of the Maryland agency that oversees the prisons, appeared at the Baltimore news conference where prosecutors announced the charges, and took responsibility for ongoing problems.

“It’s totally on me. I don’t make any excuses,” said Maynard, who was appointed by Gov. Martin O’Malley in 2007, when the prison system was experiencing a spate of inmate violence and corrections officers’ complaints of staffing shortages. “We will move up the chain of command, and people will be held accountable.”

Really? You two-faced twat waffle. You already ARE at the top. So hold yourself accountable NOW, and submit your resignation. FAIL. You suck, bye bye. Somebody else can do the investigation, although the time and cost effective way would be to fire everyone in the system from the guards on up, then start over.

[ the inmate named ] Tavon is Tavon White,[...] who allegedly headed the Baltimore branch of the BGF. White seemed to go out of his way to flaunt his status. In a press release, the FBI quoted a phone call White made from jail, in which he touted his control over the facilities:

This is my jail. You understand that? I’m dead serious....I make every final call in this jail...and nothing go past me, everything come to me....Any of my brothers that deal with anybody, it’s gonna come to me. You see what I am saying? Everything come to me. Everything. Before a mother-f—— hit a n—— in the mouth, guess what they do, they gotta run it through me. I tell them whether it’s a go ahead, and they can do it or whether they hold back. Before a mother-f—— stab somebody, they gotta run it through me....Anything that get done must go through me.

The Baltimore City Paper has published at least 10 stories on the Baltimore branch of the BGF. In 2009, according to the City Paper, 24 alleged gang members—four prison employees among them—were indicted on drug, gun, and extortion charges; the BGF leader at the time, Eric Brown, ran a community nonprofit organization that allegedly served to cover up illegal activities.* (Several Baltimore-area BGF members allegedly do this sort of thing.) In 2010, 13 more BGF members were indicted. And this isn’t just happening at the Baltimore City Detention Center. In 2011, an employee of Baltimore’s supermax Maryland Correctional Adjustment Center (now known as the Chesapeake Detention Facility) was sentenced to 37 months in prison for assisting the BGF with drug trafficking, among other crimes.

So this story isn’t a lone example. It isn’t even another example. It’s at least the FOURTH TIME that charges have been made against prison guards for being part of, or corrupted by, the Black Guerrilla Family gang. Hello, is anyone home at all? Is anyone in Baltimore listening? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

And it gets WORSE. The lead - 13 prison guards indicted - is less than half the actual story: 25 people were actually charged!! Let’s get the FBI’s own statement:

BALTIMORE—A federal grand jury returned a racketeering indictment charging 25 individuals, including 13 correctional officers with the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, for conspiring to run operations of the Black Guerilla Family (BGF) gang inside correctional facilities. All 25 defendants also are charged with conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute drugs, and 20 of the defendants are charged with money laundering conspiracy.

The indictment and a detailed affidavit were unsealed today upon the arrests of the defendants and the execution of 15 search warrants. Approximately 170 agents and officers assisted in today’s arrests and search warrants. The indictment was returned on April 2, 2013. One defendant was killed in a robbery several hours before the indictment was filed.

...

“Correctional officers were in bed with BGF inmates, in violation of the first principle of prison management,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. “Preventing prison corruption requires intensive screening at prison entrances and punishment for employees who consort with inmates or bring cell phones and drugs into correctional facilities.”

“This investigation revealed the pervasive nature of prison corruption in Baltimore City’s Detention Centers,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Stephen E. Vogt. “Such corruption causes the FBI to divert crucial investigative resources away from addressing violence on the streets of Baltimore. In this case, the inmates literally took over ‘the asylum,’ and the detention centers became safe havens for the BGF. Such a situation cannot be tolerated. Law enforcement should not have to concern itself with criminal subjects who have already been arrested and relegated to detention centers.”

...

The 10 men and 15 women charged in the indictment are alleged to be members or associates of the BGF, a gang active in prisons throughout the United States. According to the indictment, BGF has been the dominant gang at the Baltimore City Detention Center (BCDC) and in several connected facilities, especially the Baltimore Central Booking Intake Center, the Women’s Detention Center (which houses many men), and in the Jail Industries Building. The indictment alleges that since at least 2009, BGF members and associates in BCDC and related prison facilities engaged in criminal activities, including drug trafficking, robbery, assault, extortion, bribery, witness retaliation, money laundering, and obstruction of justice.

BGF members and associates allegedly bribed correctional officers at BCDC and related prison facilities to smuggle drugs, cell phones, and other contraband. Correctional officers arranged favored treatment and privileges for imprisoned BGF gang members, and officers thwarted interdiction and law enforcement efforts against BGF inmates. BGF members and associates allegedly had long-term sexual relationships with several correctional officers and impregnated them.

HFS. I’m losing my one remaining marble here. But it still gets WORSE! Prison authorities already had a pretty good idea that at least one of the guards was a gang member years ago, and did nothing.

One of the corrections officers accused this week of helping Black Guerrilla Family members smuggle drugs into a Baltimore jail was flagged seven years ago for alleged gang ties.

A state investigator raised concerns in 2006 that [prison guard] Antonia Allison might have been linked to the Bloods. Federal prosecutors this week accused Allison of working with a BGF member who was an inmate at the Baltimore City Detention Center.

The fact that Allison continued to work at the jail after the investigator’s report raised new questions as the state continues to grapple with the corruption scandal at the troubled state institution.

Allison is one of 13 officers charged in the indictment; four others were allegedly impregnated by Tavon White, the gang member who authorities say controlled the jail. Twelve others, including inmates and alleged gang members outside the jail, were also charged.

The accusations prompted lawmakers to call a rare out-of-session hearing on the state’s prison system. Members of the House Judiciary Committee will hold the meeting May 8 to ask how the alleged corruption developed.

Del. Luiz R. S. Simmons said allegations against corrections officers need to be investigated “seriously.”

Court filings paint gang members as highly organized, with an eye on the long term at a facility intended to temporarily hold suspects before trial. Prosecutors say they methodically went about co-opting corrections officers and had a command structure that jail authorities believed would determine succession if a member was set free or sent to prison.

Corrections department investigators discovered BGF documents outlining that new recruits are trained to target female officers with “low self-esteem, insecurities and certain physical attributes,” according to the affidavit. Gang members believe such officers can be easily manipulated, investigators wrote.

Previous federal investigations targeting the BGF suppressed the gang in Maryland’s prisons and on the streets, prosecutors say. But the new indictment says it became deeply entrenched inside the jail — establishing the 36-year-old White in power while he awaited trial for more than three years on an attempted-murder charge.

The gang had documents. In the prison? They had a work plan. Did they have a vision statement too, like every other corporation? Did they have a server network across the national or MD prison system that the FBI had to hack into. Fer crying out loud, the gang had documents and a recruitment process??? Highly organized indeed. Crivens.

And it gets even worse. Pimp-daddy Tavon be putting 5 jewels in dat boo-tay tappa crown; he had his own damn HAREM of guards to screw and knock up - one even had TWO of his spawn.

Four female correction officers were impregnated by the reported leader of a Maryland prison gang, which used a network of female prison guards to help launder money, run drugs and smuggle contraband into state detention facilities, according to a federal indictment.

One of the guards was twice impregnated by Tavon White, identified in court papers as the alleged leader of the Black Guerilla Family.

Two of the female correction officers tattooed “Tavon” on their bodies, one on her neck and another on the wrist, according to the indictment.

In one incident, one guard kept watch over a closet, in which White and another guard had sex, according to authorities.

I can’t deal with this. I just can’t. Please let me out of BRA. I can’t take it any more. This crap went on in this prison for at least 3 or 4 years. It’s been going on in other prisons in Maryland for as long if not longer. Indictment after indictment, and it doesn’t stop. Nobody is trying. They’re just going through the motions, and the monkeys are getting fatter and fatter.
