It seems that for years in a
prison the inmates have
been operating a massive criminal enterprise, with the help and assistance
of some of the correction officers.
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.
Now something of this scale cannot have gone on unnoticed, at least by some folks in authority. So the best that can be said about Gov. O’Malley was that he was clueless.
Not exactly a winning campaign slogan Mr. O'Malley.
