Entire Baltimore Neighborhood Under Lockdown: “Police Declared Martial Law”

Five days ago, Det. Sean Suiter, a married father of five and an 18-year veteran with the Baltimore Police, was patrolling the streets of West Baltimore around 5pm last Wednesday when he saw suspicious activity. Suiter approached a man and was shot point blank in the head, in a summary execution. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition where he later died of his injuries.

In response, Baltimore Police reacted with ‘fire and fury’ turning the neighborhood where Suiter was shot into an “open-air prison”, shutting down city streets and enabling checkpoints for citizens while officers in tactical gear went door to door, according to Baltimore Brew. Residents were prohibited from entering their own neighborhood unless they showed proper identification, these extreme measures have been in place for 4-5 days.

“They’ve been to my house three times asking, ‘Did you hear anything? Do you know anything,’” said Edward Stanley, a local resident, who had to show a yellow slip before entering the neighborhood.

Baltimore Brew said, the neighborhood was tuned into “open-air prison”, as the complete lockdown was in attempt to collect evidence and search for the shooter.

Police initially said they needed to cordon off the area to try to capture the shooter. Police have said Suiter was in the 900 block of Bennett Place, investigating a previous homicide, when he was shot on Wednesday. So far, no arrests have been announced in the case. This morning, homicide detective Mike Newton told The Brew that the lockdown was necessary to collect evidence.

One community group took pictures of a checkpoint in West Baltimore.

Philadelphia Cop Held Until Trial After Threatening Kids of Rogue Baltimore Detective


A Baltimore detective and Philadelphia patrol officer allegedly teamed up to sell heroin and cocaine seized from the streets, but their partnership turned hostile after one was arrested, prosecutors say.

Prosecutors urged a federal judge Friday to detain Philadelphia Officer Eric Troy Snell until trial after they said he threatened the children of Baltimore Detective Jemell Rayam.

Snell was recorded on the phone saying he would “keep an eye” on Rayam’s children after the Baltimore detective was arrested, prosecutors said.

“This was an explicit reference,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Derek Hines said, “that he would hurt his children, and that causes us grave concerns.”

Snell’s defense attorney argued that the phrase was “susceptible to multiple interpretations.” Still, he couldn’t persuade U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Coulson to release Snell to his mother’s home in Philadelphia.

Coulson ordered Snell held until his trial in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

“One interpretation, as argued by the government, is extremely concerning,” Coulson said.

Hines also said Snell was a threat because federal agents who raided his home found several guns, including an assault rifle with the serial number removed. They also found drug packaging such as plastic bags with some powder, and chemical testing continues on the powder.

Defense attorney David Solomon said he hadn’t seen the evidence yet but suspected there are innocent explanations. He characterized as “far-flung” the accusations that Snell had conspired to sell heroin and cocaine Rayam seized from Baltimore’s streets.

The case was all based on Rayam, whose word couldn’t be trusted, Solomon said.

Snell was the latest police officer charged in a far-reaching drug case brought against eight members of an elite Baltimore police unit. The officers are accused of robbing people of drugs and cash, then selling some of the drugs. Two officers, including Rayam, admitted to helping convict drug dealers who sold heroin throughout the Baltimore suburbs.

Baltimore Police Van Driver Caesar Goodson Not Guilty on All 21 Charges in Freddie Gray Case


Baltimore Police Officer Caesar Goodson Jr. was found not guilty Tuesday of all 21 administrative charges against him in the 2015 arrest and death of Freddie Gray.

The verdict absolves Goodson once and for all in the case, and allows him to continue his career on the city police force.

Goodson, 48, the driver of the police van in which Gray was found with severe spinal cord injuries in April 2015, was charged with neglecting his duty by failing to ensure Gray’s safety by securing him in a seat belt or calling a medic when he requested one. He was also charged with making false statements to investigators.

Goodson faced possible termination if any of the charges against him had been sustained.

A trial board of three police officers — two from Baltimore and one from Prince George’s County — was unanimous in clearing him of all charges. He was acquitted in a separate criminal trial of charges including second-degree depraved-heart murder.

“This is a vindication of this officer,” said Sean Malone, one of Goodson’s attorneys. “This is a tragic accident that happened, and we’re sorry for the loss of Mr. Gray. But we’re glad that our client is not going to be the face of this incident.”

The decision of the panel is final. It cannot be challenged by the city or the police department.

Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said the department “will stay the course” with the forthcoming trial boards for two other officers charged administratively in the case.

“Freddie Gray died in police custody. My thoughts and prayers remain with the Gray family,” Davis said in a statement. “We will continue to make improvements within our organization to meet the expectations of constitutional policing demanded by our community.”

Fourth Baltimore Officer Pleads Guilty in Federal Racketeering Conspiracy


BALTIMORE – A fourth Baltimore City Police officer charged in a federal racketeering conspiracy, plead guilty Thursday.

Momodu Gondo admitted to conspiracy and drug distribution charges.

Gondo is among eight officers, part of an elite gun squad, federally indicted on racketeering charges stemming from allegedly unlawfully arresting and robbing people, and participating in an overtime fraud scheme.

The Baltimore State’s Attorney’s office said 295 cases have been impacted by the cases of the eight officers indicted in a federal racketeering conspiracy.

The indictments against seven officers were announced in March and came at the end of an investigation conducted by the Baltimore Police Department (BPD) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

An eighth officer was charged in August.

The BPD is one of two police departments in the state to dedicate full-time internal affairs detectives to work directly with the FBI. When asked initially about the investigation, Commissioner Kevin Davis told FOX45,
“This was a very involved conspiracy investigation involving seven dirty cops,”

“The police department and the city became better when they were taken into custody. If there’s any other officers engaged in this type of conduct, their arrest will happen under my watch as well.”

The officers were accused of robbing victims, filing false affidavits, and making fraudulent overtime claims.
Davis stressed that the alleged actions do not represent the values of the department as a whole.

Davis described them as “straight up 1930s-style gangsters.”

Whether the cops knew about the investigation Davis said, “I think they suspected.”

He added, “These are savvy criminals, I’m not even going to call them police officers because they were really impersonating police officers. They’re very savvy, they were very aware of their criminal misconduct so they were always looking over their shoulder.”

Third Baltimore Police Detective to Plead Guilty in Federal Racketeering Case


Baltimore Police Det. Jemell Rayam will plead guilty Tuesday in federal court to robbing people he detained, billing for overtime hours he didn’t work, and forging reports to cover his tracks, his attorney, Dennis Boyle, said.

Rayam’s guilty plea would bring to three the number of police detectives who have admitted to the criminal charges filed early this year in a federal racketeering case with far-reaching implications. The scandal has toppled the elite gun unit of the police department and led prosecutors to drop criminal charges against more than 100 people whose cases hinged on the word of the officers.

A fourth officer, Det. Momodu Gondo, called “G Money” in wiretapped phone calls, is scheduled to appear in federal court Thursday to change his plea of not guilty. His attorneys did not respond to messages Monday.

Both detectives live in Owings Mills and remain suspended from the police department. They have been held in detention since their arrest and each faces as much as 20 years in prison. A hearing for Rayam, to change his plea was initially scheduled for next month.

Two Baltimore detectives plead guilty to racketeering charges, face up to nine years in prison
Six other officers have been indicted in the racketeering case, including the plainclothes gun unit’s former commanders, Sergeants Thomas Allers and Wayne Jenkins. Both men pleaded not guilty, as have Detectives Daniel Hersl and Marcus Taylor. Their trials are scheduled to begin in January.

Detectives Evodio Hendrix and Maurice Ward both pleaded guilty in July and await sentencing next year. They face seven to nine years in prison under sentencing guidelines, though the judge could choose to impose the maximum 20 years.

[WATCH] Baltimore Police Officer Will Serve Six Months for Beating Caught on Video


A Baltimore police officer who was caught on surveillance video beating a man by repeatedly punching him in the face pleaded guilty to second-degree assault today, receiving a five year prison sentence.

However, the judge suspended all but six months of the sentence.

But who would ever think a cop would spend a single day behind bars?

Certainly not Vincent Cosom, who claimed in his police report that he was only defending himself against Kollin Truss who struck him in the body.

However, the video shows Truss was trying to walk away from him and never once struck him.

The incident took place on June 14, 2014, but the city surveillance video did not surface until three months later when the victim’s lawyer obtained the footage.

Charges against Truss were dismissed as the video turned into a national story.

According to a New York Daily News from September 17, 2014:

The police report of the incident said Truss was loitering outside Charm City liquor store and appeared intoxicated, WJLA reported. He yelled an obscenity at Cosom when he was told to leave, the police report said.

Cosom said he moved in to make an arrest after he witnessed Truss push his girlfriend three times.

“At this time I went to place the male under arrest,” Cosom’s report states.

“He got into a fighting stance and clenched his fist. Me and the male got into a physical altercation due to me being in fear of my safety and I received a punch to the body.”

Truss was charged with assault, but the video tells a different story.

Cosom was initially charged with perjury along with assault because he had lied in his report, but that charge apparently disappeared as part of the plea deal. His lawyer said the beating was “simply a lapse in judgment,” according to the Baltimore Sun.

  • Cop beating a man who’s DRUNK and who’s friend is trying to walk him away. He already has problems, evident by him being drunk in the street. While they were still in front of the store the cop pushed the girl away. He has zero tolerance. Usually I stand up for the police but in this case nope.
