Corruption Watch

from the Baltimore Sun

A two-year Baltimore City school system investigation has found that administrators at one city high school schemed to inflate enrollment, pressured teachers to change grades and scheduled students into classes that didn’t exist.

The report is a devastating account of how the former principal of Augusta Fells Savage Institute of Visual Arts, Tracy Hicks, and three other administrators fabricated courses and approved students for graduation when they had failed to legitimately pass classes. While the report does not determine a motive, principals are evaluated on graduation and attendance rates.

Corruption Watch

From the Baltimore Brew


Last week’s meeting of Baltimore’s Inspector General Advisory Board was ominous. It confirmed my worst fears about the ulterior motives of several board members.

Any actions taken by the board over the next few months to weaken the Office of Inspector General (OIG) would have a profoundly negative impact on the future of the city.

Residents and others interested in the well-being of Baltimore must make themselves heard before it is too late.

It is not hyperbole to describe the effort to undercut the OIG’s independence through intrusive “oversight” by a highly political board as a watershed moment.

 Hearing dominated by board’s concern about whether IG investigations could threaten them or their allies (8/26/21)

City agencies are failing under the combined weight of incompetence, waste and corruption – and city services are deteriorating accordingly.

Watching and listening to last Wednesday’s board meeting, however, the casual observer would have concluded that the most serious problem facing Baltimore is the possibility that an investigation by the IG might embarrass a city politician or one of his or her cronies.

To Baltimore City Mayor, Brandon Scott and Members of the Baltimore City Council

The number of homicides and violent crimes committed within our great city have continued at a staggering rate.  Three hundred thirty-five lives ended last year as a result of gun violence. Over the past ten years, over 3,000 Baltimoreans have been killed.  And 2021 is outpacing the 2020 murder rate.

Open Carry allows citizens of any social class to defend themselves from predators who would wantonly steal, assault, or worse. Opponents will argue that open carry will increase gun violence. In fact, criminal activity decreases wherever law abiding citizens are allowed to defend themselves.  Unlike criminals who flee the scene after a shooting, those who are registered gun owners will justifiably report an incident to the police after a shooting, knowing they have the legal right to defend his or her person.
