Memo To Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley – Get Your State Prisons Under Control Before You Run for President

Because Voters Even Prefer Conservatives Over Incompetents

Other than Mrs. Clinton, the Democratic bench is pretty thin with respect to candidates for the 2016 Presidential race.  So one of the wannabes is Maryland’s Democratic Governor, Martin O’Malley, who will run on the idea that he is a competent, effective and accomplished manager of governmental actions.  But not so fast.

13 corrections officers indicted in Md., accused of aiding gang’s drug scheme

(Michael S. Williamson/ The Washington Post ) - The Baltimore City Detention Center is the site where officials allege scores of crimes were committed by a prison gang and correctional officers.


    It seems that for years in a Maryland 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.
