Skip to comments.13 corrections officers indicted in Md., accused of aiding gang’s drug scheme
Posted on 04/24/2013 5:57:38 AM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi
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 inmates first name, Tavon one on her neck, the other on a wrist.

The criminals are running things in Maryland just like they are next door in D.C.
This issue should get a lot of prominence but never does. Prison guards in a lot of prisons all across the country aid prisoners in bringing drugs and other contraband into prisons. It happens all the time. It probably could be cut back significantly if the media reported it and states got serious about it, but no one seems to care.
So, if you’re a female prison guard and you trade sex for money, wouldn’t that make you a whore? I’ll bet there’s something in their contract about not working another job while you’re on the taxpayer’s time.
There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That’s an entitlement. The government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. And I mean the president starts off with 48, 49...he starts off with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn’t connect. So he’ll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. ... My job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. What I have to do is convince the 510% in the center that are independents, that are thoughtful, that look at voting one way or the other depending upon in some cases emotion, whether they like the guy or not.

Anyone actually suspect that these folks were Romney supporters? Anyone?
The national media and politicians are hesitant to report on prison corruption because the inmates and officers involved are disproportionately minority, particularly black. It would be in PC. To the Compost’s credit they do note some very embarrassing facts about officers that aided the Black Guerilla Army...
“At the center of the investigation was an alleged leader of the Black Guerilla Family, Tavon White, who prosecutors said fathered five children with four of the corrections officers Jennifer Owens, 31, of Randallstown; Katera Stevenson, 24, of Baltimore; Chania Brooks, 27, of Baltimore; and Tiffany Linder, 27, of Baltimore since his incarceration on attempted murder charges in 2009.”
“In one instance, prosecutors described Officer Jasmin Jones allegedly standing guard outside a closet while Officer Kimberly Dennis had sex with inmate Derius Duncan.”
I do charity work with three prisons in my area. In all three of them, I know of prisoners who have all kinds of contraband including cell phones. On the flip side, the states have found ways to profit off prisoners — charging a fortune for them to make phone calls and to get extra food items. The whole prison system is a corrupt racket. It really needs to be cleaned up but no one is making it a priority.
This used to be a headline in Mexico. Now, it has come to the States. Not unexpected.
Are these some of the highly trained people that can be trusted to have firearms?
Another example of total destruction of the criminal justice system by Dear Leader and AG Holder.
First our Governor. —— Ex Baltimore Mayor.
Second.——Female Guards in a male prison—Totally stupid and done for political correctness. Male Guards in a female prison —just as bad.
Third. -—They allow drugs to be brought in to keep peace in the prison.
Fourth——Black Guerilla family-—Speaks for itself.
Fifth-—Affirmative Action black female guards-—article doesn’t say, but likely,although many white women seem to like going black also.
Sounds like a new season for “The Wire”.
Just how ugly must the female officers be that they can only get laid by a prisoner?
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
Who said they were only getting laid by the prisoners? Maybe they’re doing the sex for trade, then going home to their boyfriends or husbands.
Another article on this.
This gang leader knocked up FOUR female guards (one of them twice) and enticed 2 of those women to get his name tattooed on their bodies.
I cannot muster outrage at this man, he is a Mack-Daddy Grand Arch-Pimp and I salute him for it.
