PostSubject: Baltimore Jail Kingpin Gets Slap on the Wrist   Wed Feb 11, 2015 1:36 am

Tavon White knew how to do time, he did better inside Baltimore City Jail than most guys do outside.  IIRC he made $200K annually, maybe more.  He basically ran the jail including the lucrative drug trade.  But the jail corruption was so blatant the scheme couldn't last.  Tavon was prosecuted, snitched on huge # of people & rewarded with 12-yr sentence to be served concurrently with previous 20-yr sentence for attempted murder.  Fathered 5 kids w/jail guards.  

But he's gonna need some luck to avoid getting shanked to death.

Baltimore gang member Tavon White, who ran drug ring in prison and impregnated four guards, gets reduced sentence thanks to key testimony

Tavon White ran a drug smuggling operation in the Baltimore City Detention Center and impregnated four guards there. But he also gave a key testimony in a trial that led to the convictions of several inmates and guards involved in the drug ring.

Tavon White fathered five children with four guards at the Baltimore City Detention Center and also oversaw a drug ring he later helped destroy in court. Anne Arundel County Police Dept. Tavon White fathered five children with four guards at the Baltimore City Detention Center and also oversaw a drug ring he later helped destroy in court.

HHe commanded a Baltimore gang, ran a drug ring from a prison cell, impregnated four prison guards — and got a reduced sentence.

Prosecutors praised convicted criminal Tavon White in court Monday and sentenced him to 12 years in prison, a big break from his maximum sentence, for testifying against fellow gang members and convincing fellow inmates to be less violent.

White, who was in the Black Guerilla Family gang, ran a drug smuggling operation while serving time in the Baltimore City Detention Center. He later gave a five-day testimony that led to the conviction of five people involved in the ring, including two corrections officers. The case also led to 35 people pleading guilty. Prosecutors considered White a key figure in the case.

White oversaw a massive criminal network of inmates and guards, and once declared in a jailhouse phone call that he was "the law" and said: "This is my jail."

But he also instituted a no-stabbing policy for members of his gang, which cut down on violent attacks in the prison.

U.S. District Judge Ellen Hollander credited White on Monday with keeping violence under control and putting himself at risk with his testimony.

"It took great courage to do what he did," she said. "This is a man in danger."

She said government officials considered him "a positive influence" at the prison.

White faced a maximum sentence of 20 years for his crimes. He'll serve the 12-year sentence concurrently with a 20-year sentence he began in 2009 for attempted murder, the Baltimore Sun reported.

His lawyer told the court that White was unlikely to return to gang life after his release from prison, since his testimony killed his reputation on the streets.

He's an asset and will get opportunities for further reward.  Is it total corruption yet, or does it get worse from here?

Baltimore Jail has cool old-time Gothic architecture, would make for great Yuppie condo building. Like Lorton which converted into suburban houses with the remnant being an art center. Now the Black prisoners are sent to Ohio etc.

How "punishing" is prison for ghetto Blacks? They get 3 hots & a cot, tv etc. Great place to renew old friendships & work out old disputes. Prison gives structure to their lives--while they chafe under the rules I think they actually sort of like it. It's not like prison is keeping them from getting their PhD or whatnot.

Maryland has no current effective deterrent against blacks committing any crime, regardless of how severe.  They need to re-institute the punishment of hard labor.  At least take away the TVs.

Mebbe so though Black crime has trended to ever-younger perps who are very impulsive & seemingly ignore consequences whatever they might be. Older convicts grouse about the younguns who don't follow the old Convict Code & constantly fight, hassle w/the guards etc causing problems for all the inmates.

A true-prison show featured a ~30-yr old gangsta Black (serving life or at least a long term) & stated that, like any good dad, he hoped Junior would follow in his footsteps. Dad told the interviewers he would still love his son EVEN IF Jr didn't join a gang.

Hard labor might just help Black thugs get stronger. Perhaps we should feed inmates unlimited amounts of cheeseburgers w/deluxe cable (NBA tier, natch) so that they become 400-lb tubs w/diabetes. Idea
