First, Maryland governor Martin O’Malley initiates new restrictions on gun ownership, and now it turns out that the inmates are running the jails.
His excellency has presidential aspirations, so I’m wondering what his slogan is going to be.
O’Malley: Leveling the playing field between the law abiding and the criminal class.
Warning: If you buy an illegal gun and get caught, you, too, may wind up with a harem, a huge bankroll and a drug empire.
Well, maybe there’s an upside. Perhaps the state might be persuaded to license production of a reality show based on the events at the Baltimore jail and the state prison. I can see it all now…
Paco Productions presents Hoes with Badges!
(Or should that be Prison Guard Hoes and their Jailhouse Beaus?)
And to Gary D. Maynard, Secretary of Public Safety and Correctional Services, all I can say is, “Heck of a job, Gary!”
“Hey, I’m going to work 24/7 to ensure that our jails are rid of the criminal element!”
