All I have to say is, it's institutional wide and not just in the city lock up.
And what does Maryland governor, want to be president of the United States, Martin O'Malley have to say?
"It is because of the revulsion that all of us have towards violent murder gangs in our state, that I view these indictments as a very positive achievement, and a very positive development in our fight to dismantle gangs," O'Malley said at a news conference Tuesday.
If former correctional officers, who quit the system before retirement, were to line up and start telling WHY they left, Martin O'Malley's political career would be over and the United States would have to take over the Maryland correctional institution.
There is a lot to this. You have prisoners and correctional officers coming from the same neighborhoods and you have prisoners who can have the correctional officer's family "touched." You have correctional officers who, even though they are making about $40K/year before overtime, who just want more money. You have correctional officers who, to go home at the end of the day, let "things slide" and before you know it, they are blackmailed into doing real dirt. And you have some correctional officers with gang ties either through family or themselves.
This is real nasty. The only solution, I see, is to ship the prisoners out of state so you don't have "neighbors" looking after imprisoned "neighbors."
