Four female prison guards in Baltimore fell pregnant to the same inmate, according to authorities who have busted a major smuggling gang inside the jail system.I know Baltimore gets a bad rap, and that's really a shame. People who've never been to the Charm City only know about it via "The Wire", and niggardry like this only reinforces the negative stereotype of a corrupt city teeming with dopeboys and violence. And yeah, that's certainly based on reality, but it's hardly the whole picture. But I, of course, digress.
Two of the women tattooed the inmate's name on their bodies and he showered three of them with expensive gifts including cars and jewelry. The four women are among 25 people who face federal charges, including 13 female prison guards, CBS Baltimore reports.
The scheme involved smuggling drugs and cell phones into Baltimore City Detention Center.
U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein said the 25 defendants participated in running the activities of the Black Guerilla Family - a prison and street gang - from behind bars in Baltimore City.
The indictment says the ringleader, inmate Tavon White, reportedly made $16,000 in one month from the smuggled contraband. Four corrections officers-Jennifer Owens, Katera Stevenson, Chania Brooks and Tiffany Linder, who are also facing charges - allegedly fell pregnant to White while he was behind bars.
Charging documents reveal Owens had "Tavon" tattooed on her neck and Stevenson had "Tavon" tattooed on her wrist. White allegedly gave gifts to three corrections officers. Owens, Stevenson and Brooks received a diamond ring and luxury cars.
Secretary Gary Maynard is taking full responsibility.
“It becomes embarrassing for me when we expose ourselves and we participate in an investigation that’s going to show what’s going on in our jails that I am not proud of,” Maynard said.
The most remarkable part of this story isn't the fact that the women got pregnant by an inmate. That happens all the time. I'm not even all that shocked that the women were (prolly) knowingly all involved with "Tavon" at the same d*mn time, and letting an inmate hit that raw dawg. Again, happens all the time. Yawn.
What's most amazing here is that two of the chicks had his name tattooed on a very visible part of their bodies and nobody running the prison thought that was a wee bit suspicious. Seriously, I know the supervisors at the BMore City Jail were turning a blind eye to a lot of tomfoolery, but didn't the matching tatts tip off someone? Anyone? Seriously?
Props to "Tavon" cause that's some big time pimpin' right there, my man. He lives better in captivity that most cats do on the outside.
Question: What kind of woman lowers herself to such "standards"?!?
