Since these are Federal indictments, and the Feds rarely release mug shots, it’s not photographically obvious. But if you just read the text, and read between the lines, it’s easy to see that this is like the Baltimore City Jail scandal in another way: Black women guards birddogging for black men inmates. As our very own Puggg explained to us when the City Jail scandal broke, while the ideal is to have men be the jail and prison guards in men’s jails and prisons, public agencies also want to engage in affirmative action. So if they had their way, the guards would all be black men. But way too many black men have felony records that preclude them getting law enforcement type jobs. And hiring white men is out of the question. Therefore, their only option is black women.
From there, the only open question is whether the black women guards are relatively innocent victims of the black men inmates’ clever seduction techniques, or whether they were willing and complicit participants all along, as many of them are loosely if not more strongly associated with a street gang because they already have men relatives who are part of a given gang, and the women themselves have a thirst for thug dick, which, in a prison, is a good place to find some. After a few years of watching Tommy Sotomayor videos, my mindset on that open question has transitioned from the former theory to the latter.
