Hearing Today To Discuss Gang Activity Inside The Baltimore City Detention Center

Eric Tucker for the Associated Press has an update to an older story involving a gang leader operating from inside the Baltimore City Detention Center. He is alleged to have said: “This is my jail,” in connection to the numerous activities he is said to have been involved in during his time behind bars, including getting four female guards pregnant.

There’s a hearing today that has resurrected this story, given what Tucker describes as the embarrassing nature of a situation where the men behind bars are controlling the guards who are supposed to be guarding them.

It’s “widespread dysfunction,” apparently, at the center in downtown Baltimore, where there are thousands of people jailed after having been arrested and waiting for trial, or who are serving short-term jail sentences.

This dysfunction has earned Gov. Martin O’Malley some heat from Republicans (O’Malley is a possible 2016 presidential candidate, according to Tucker), a dysfunction which apparently allowed the gang leader, Tavon White, to not only have sex with the guards but to smuggle drugs and mobile phones and put the guards to work on behalf of the gang.
