Baltimore Housing's sex-for-repairs case settled—then unsettled
December 20, 2016 Baltimore Sun
A woman who was allegedly sexually assaulted by a city employee lost an $80,000 settlement because of a paperwork glitch.
Didi—a nickname to protect the privacy of a sexual assault victim—is one of dozens, maybe hundreds, of public housing residents who were harassed or sexually assaulted by city maintenance employees in a sex-for-repairs scandal this year. But while more than 100 women were set this fall to receive settlement payments of up to $100,000, Didi was denied because her application form arrived late.
"I mailed them in time as far as I know," Didi says.
The so-called sex-for-repairs scandal erupted in the fall of 2015, when more than a dozen women complained in a lawsuit that maintenance workers employed by Baltimore Housing for years had refused to do repairs and maintenance on their public housing units unless they acquiesced to sex—or because they complained about sexual harassment and assault.

DOJ: Baltimore PD Abused African-Americans, Trans Women, Sex Workers
Harper Jean Tobin
In a scathing report released today, the U.S. Justice Department (DOJ) found that the Baltimore Police Department has routinely violated civil rights in numerous ways. Among many problems cited in the 163-page report, the DOJ found that Baltimore police regularly targeted Black residents for stops and searches, used excessive force, ignored or demeaned sexual assault victims, harassed transgender women, and tolerated sexual abuse by officers, especially of sex workers.
As I work hard to get our local BALTIMORE POLICE ----UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND CAMPUS POLICE AND SECURITY to take seriously and provide the required response to my COMPLAINT OF TOILET CAM PORN in institutional women's bathroom, I want to make clear that the lack of action by police these few decades of ROBBER BARON sacking and looting of the US and 99% of WE THE PEOPLE is now MOVING FORWARD to where complete loss of SOVEREIGN RIGHTS------to include expectation of POLICING that enforces US RULE OF LAW----US CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS-----embraces 300 years of legal court precedence----is being IGNORED by each public agency tasked with protecting PUBLIC INTEREST---PUBLIC SAFETY----PUBLIC WELFARE/WELL-BEING.
The question below regarding just what a WELL-REGULATED MILITIA means in US history is tied to GUN CONTROL----but is relevant in understanding that NOTHING IN OUR US GOVERNANCE STRUCTURES OR HISTORY allows for any global private policing and security corporations replacing our local, state, and Federal police and security agencies.
ALL THESE AGENCIES HAVE BEEN PUBLIC FOR 300 YEARS-----GLOBAL BANKING 5% FREEMASON/GREEK PLAYER POLS CANNOT SIMPLY PASS STATUTES CHANGING THESE STANCES.
Allowing this designation of GLOBAL CORPORATE CAMPUSES having their own GLOBAL POLICING AND SECURITY CORPORATIONS as police------is exactly why today's police in Baltimore have not a CLUE-----as to US RULE OF LAW-----community policing----and
HOW NOT TO ACT LIKE A THIRD WORLD NATION CORRUPT AND CRIMINAL POLICE AGENCY.
Supreme Court to Define ‘Well Regulated Militia’?
By Brooks Jackson
Posted on December 20, 2007
Q: Is the Supreme Court going to define “well regulated militia”?
A: Perhaps so. It is considering a gun-control case in which it might choose to rule on what the Second Amendment means.
This question refers to the language of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and whether it gives a right to own guns to all citizens, or only to those who are reasonably connected with “a well regulated militia.”
The Second Amendment is part of the Bill of Rights, and it says:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Here we see EXACTLY what has made our Baltimore City policing THIRD WORLD---DARK AGES. It is well-understood that global hedge fund corporation JOHNS HOPKINS has had a PRIVATE POLICING AND SECURITY staff----UN-OFFICIALLY-------so, now Baltimore's Maryland Assembly working hard to make LEGAL STATUTES allowing these global policing structures in our US CITY DEEMED FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONE.
“Private police on campus are likely to exacerbate racial profiling, with even more dangerous and potentially fatal consequences.”
When SEXUAL ASSAULTS in Baltimore are SKY-HIGH-----when NOSY NEIGHBOR AND THE GANG illegal surveillance camera and microphone---PORNOGRAPHY is saturated in each community in BALTIMORE-----
THIS IS WHY.
Johns Hopkins police force bill clears major hurdle with endorsement by Baltimore senators

Contact ReportersThe Baltimore Sun
A majority of Baltimore’s state senators voted Thursday to endorse legislation to create an armed police force at the private Johns Hopkins University, meaning the bill cleared a major hurdle to its passage.
By a 3-2 vote, the city Senate delegation backed legislation authorizing the force after imposing limits on the areas officers can patrol and requiring a quarter of the 100 officers to live in the city, among other restrictions.
Sen. Shirley Nathan-Pulliam, a Democrat who represents the city and Baltimore County, said she was compelled to vote in favor of the force because of the city’s persistently high crime rate. For four consecutive years, Baltimore has suffered more than 300 homicides.
“What’s happening in Baltimore city is nationally known,” Nathan-Pulliam said. “Every night I go home, there’s another murder.”
The Hopkins police force, she argued, provides an opportunity to “try to curtail some of this crime.”
Joining Nathan-Pulliam in support of the legislation were Sen. Antonio Hayes, a West Baltimore Democrat who is chairman of the city’s Senate delegation, and Sen. Cory McCray of East Baltimore.
Baltimore Sens. Mary Washington and Jill P. Carter voted against the legislation, arguing that it’s a dangerous precedent to empower a private entity with police powers.
“I’m very disappointed with the passage of this bill out of this delegation,” said Carter, who argued that the process was “clearly rigged.”
Sen. Bill Ferguson, who represents Southeast Baltimore, recused himself from the vote because he is a Hopkins employee.
The vote was likely the toughest hurdle the legislation will have to overcome. The rest of the Senate is likely to defer to the delegation’s wishes in both the Judicial Proceedings Committee and on the Senate floor.
Del. Cheryl Glenn, a Baltimore Democrat, introduced a companion bill in the House of Delegates, where it has yet to receive a vote.
But the city’s Senate delegation — home of four new senators who replaced more centrist incumbents after running campaigns from the left — is considered the more progressive chamber where the bill was in greater jeopardy.
News of the Senate delegation’s vote was met with bitter resignation at a community meeting Thursday night in Charles Village.
Robbie Shilliam, a Hopkins political science professor, said he was “sickly disappointed” by the development.
“The voters will remember this decision,” said Stephanie Saxton, a Hopkins graduate student and member of Students Against Private Police, which sponsored the event on Facebook. She applauded Senators Washington and Carter for “representing the will of the people.”
Though he said he was “highly suspicious of anything that Hopkins does,” Charles Village resident Bill Harvey, 72, said that the Senate’s vote Thursday night reflected Hopkins’ shrewdness in advancing its goals in Baltimore. The university has eight lobbyists working in Annapolis.
“What Hopkins wants, Hopkins gets,” Harvey said.
Hopkins officials — including university President Ronald Daniels — have argued the city’s “unrelenting” violence shows the institution needs to create a police department.
The university employs a private security force of roughly 1,000 people to monitor its Homewood campus in North Baltimore and the medical campus that surrounds Johns Hopkins Hospital in East Baltimore.
The proposed university police department of about 100 officers would replace a unit of armed, off-duty Baltimore Police Department officers and sheriff’s deputies that Hopkins pays to patrol near the campuses.
Maryland law allows public institutions to operate police departments, including Coppin State University, Morgan State University and the University of Baltimore. Hopkins — as a private institution — is not currently authorized to have such a force.
The Hopkins bill — named the Community Safety and Strengthening Act — would require the state to provide $3.5 million for city youth programs and another $1 million for the YouthWorks summer jobs program. It also calls for the Hopkins police force to establish at least one Police Athletic League center in Baltimore. The bill also mandates the state contribute $10 million for capital spending on community development projects.
On Wednesday, the city’s senators voted to endorse a series of amendments aimed at making the bill palatable to McCray and Hayes.
The senators amended the bill at Hayes’ suggestion to require Hopkins police wear body cameras and comply with the Maryland Public Information Act, including requests to see complaints of misconduct against officers.
They also voted to endorse Hayes’ amendment to bar the university from shielding officers from lawsuits using government-immunity arguments.
And the senators voted to support amendments from McCray that would limit the number of officers on the Hopkins force to 100 and require an accountability board overseeing the force to be confirmed by the Senate.
The legislation would restrict Hopkins police patrols to the Homewood campus, the medical campus and the Peabody Institute in Mount Vernon. The force would only be allowed to patrol nearby if the university gains support from neighboring community associations. Officers could, however, respond to an urgent public safety emergency near the campus, the amendments state.
The Hopkins legislation has the support of a number of powerful figures, including Gov. Larry Hogan, Rep. Elijah Cummings, Mayor Catherine Pugh, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller and billionaire alumnus Michael Bloomberg.
But more than 60 Johns Hopkins University faculty members have signed an open letter in opposition to the police force.
The faculty echoed concerns from students who have organized over the last year through the Students Against Private Police group.
“Black and brown students and Baltimoreans are already disproportionately targeted,” they wrote. “Private police on campus are likely to exacerbate racial profiling, with even more dangerous and potentially fatal consequences.”

University defends plan to create private police
By JACOB TOOK and EMILY MCDONALD | March 29, 2018
COURTESY OF JACOB TOOK President Daniels spoke about the police force to the Charles Village Civic Association.In the weeks since the University announced its divisive plan to create a private police force, administrators have attended a number of forums to solicit feedback on the proposal from students and community members. Maryland legislators are currently debating a bill, which was introduced on March 5, that would authorize the University to create such a force.
Some support the creation of a private police force because they see it as an important step in improving public safety in the areas around the University’s Baltimore campuses. Others have raised a range of concerns about the proposal, including police misconduct, such as racial profiling, and a deepened divide between Hopkins and the City.
In response to the concerns raised by students, faculty, staff and community members, the University has proposed several amendments to the original bill which will be published in the next few days.
Opponents and some supporters of the bill agree that the University did not allow for proper input from students and the community. At a forum hosted by the Charles Village Civic Association (CVCA) on Monday, Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration Daniel Ennis apologized to those who felt excluded from discussions about the proposal.
“This is a setback in the trust that we work so hard to build with you, and I am sorry for that on behalf of the institution,” Ennis said. “To have a setback [like this] in our relationship with you is not good — it’s a serious setback.”
At the forum, Shane Bryan, president of the Ednor Gardens Lakeside Civic Association which represents a community neighboring the University’s East Baltimore campus, said that he had many concerns about the bill.
“A lot of folks here today really want to start over with you and talk about ways that we can build a safer community for all of Baltimore,” Bryan said. “[Hopkins] could really do a lot for all of Baltimore in reforming the practices of the Baltimore Police Department (BPD).”
According to Ennis, the amendments that have been proposed add clarify the stipulations of the bill. The University originally anticipated that the proposal would be further elaborated while writing the memorandum of understanding (MOU), which would function as a legal agreement between the University and the City or the BPD. Similar agreements are used by other university police departments.
Included in the proposed amendments is a rule requiring the University to allow for a 30-day public feedback period before finalizing the MOU in order to encourage feedback from affected individuals and groups.
The amendments also make the bill specific to Hopkins, so that it will not give similar authority to other private institutions in the City. They also limit the geographical jurisdiction of the proposed force.
Originally, the University planned to occupy the current security patrol area, but amended the bill to restrict the proposed jurisdiction to spaces on and immediately adjacent to the Homewood, Peabody and East Baltimore campuses.
In addition, the amendments put several measures in place which aim to ensure transparency and accountability for the proposed department.
University Vice President for Communications Susan Ridge shared a draft of the amendments with The News-Letter. The draft outlines the need for an advisory board which would meet at least quarterly, post public minutes after each meeting and hold a public forum at least once a year to solicit feedback on the department.
They also call for the University to “ensure constitutional and community-oriented policing” through a range of efforts, including advancing non-discriminatory policing, ensuring the use of appropriate force with non-lethal weapons in de-escalation situations, promoting community engagement and establishing a way for individuals to file complaints against the police force.
Ennis was joined at the CVCA forum by Executive Director of Campus Safety and Security Christina Presberry, Director of Local and Community Affairs Jennifer Mielke and Baltimore Police Department (BPD) Major Rich Gibson, who oversees policing in the University’s district.
University President Ronald J. Daniels also attended to answer questions from community members. He acknowledged the examples of misconduct in private police departments referenced by several attendees but contended that the University would hold itself to a higher standard.
“There are a set of standards about how you do this policing and do it well,” Daniels said. “There is a set of programs about how you ensure that campus police understand the campus environment, that they’re respectful of academic freedom, that they understand the diverse nature of the campus community.”
Almost 20 community members spoke at the forum, some of whom were Hopkins students and staff. All but two expressed opposition to the bill.
The Greater Remington Improvement Association (GRIA), which represents the Remington neighborhood south of Homewood Campus, expressed opposition to the bill in a letter to Mielke.
In the letter, GRIA President Molly McCullagh wrote that GRIA was only informed about the proposal on March 5, the day the bill was introduced.
“The time to gain community trust and receive input on legislation is before it is introduced, not after. Combined with the short legislative calendar, it is impossible for us to vet this proposal with the community in a responsible way,” McCullagh wrote. “Our neighbors deserve a voice in this process and we do not believe that can happen effectively during this session.”
At the CVCA forum, several Hopkins alumni also shared their perspectives on the proposal.
Some, like Charles Kelly, a 48-year resident of Charles Village, expressed support for the bill. Kelly said that he had spoken with almost 50 of his friends in the area who also are in favor of the proposal.
“You should thank Hopkins for trying to make our community safer,” he said.
Ralph Moore, a Charles Village resident and graduate of the class of 1974, opposes the bill because he does not want to introduce more guns to the City in the form of armed police officers.
He questioned whether the University had met with black students and alumni to hear their concerns about police misconduct. He said that black students are often stopped by campus security officers, though this does not happen if they wear Hopkins gear.
“There is a different treatment as people confront the police or are confronted by police or security if you’re African American or if you’re white,” Moore said. “We all don’t have the same experience, and that’s what makes us nervous with this police force coming forward.”
Daniels answered that there had been meetings with black students and student leadership. He added that he had met with a group of black faculty members.
According to Daniels, these faculty members agreed that a private police force would increase public safety around Hopkins campuses.
However, he added that they expressed concerns about whether African Americans and other minorities would be subject to increased scrutiny and targeting.
“There’s training, there’s a sense of professionalism, there’s a way in which this can be done,” Daniels said. “There are police forces on campuses in this country that are responsible, that have strong relationships with their community, that seem to be trustworthy and that don’t engage in systemic bias, and that’s what we’ve got to aspire to here.”
The Bloomberg School of Public Health hosted a forum on Tuesday to discuss the possibility of a private Hopkins police force.
The forum, which was streamed and posted online, featured Daniels and Ennis alongside Jeanne Hitchcock, special advisor to the vice president for Local Government, Community and Corporate Affairs.
At the forum, Daniels assured community members that the proposed private police force would not change the way Hopkins interacts with Baltimore City and that the University will continue to acknowledge factors that influence crime.
“This commitment in no way is meant to register any sense that we are shifting our approach to how we think about our relationship with the City of Baltimore,” he said. “Namely the sense that we’ve taken a view that we’re going to be tough on crime and be blind to the core conditions, motivations that create the violence within this City.”
Daniels also believes that reducing crime will benefit the future of Baltimore City.
“This is something that constitutes a core priority for how we tip the City back to a place that I think people can feel that they can have secure and stable futures, and we’re not in that place right now in a lot of ways,” he said.
Hitchcock noted that while community members were not notified about the bill before it was proposed, Hopkins is making an effort to communicate with those communities now.
“Can I say to you that every member of every neighborhood received notice? I can’t represent that to you today. I can tell you that we communicated with neighborhood associations and presidents and leaders of their public safety committees,” she said.
At another forum hosted by the Graduate Representative Organization (GRO) in Levering Hall on Monday, several students brought up concerns about racial profiling.
At an earlier meeting, members of GRO voted 25 to one to oppose the proposed police force.
Makeda Stephenson, a graduate student in Biomedical Engineering, said that she worried that an instance of racial profiling could lead to more serious consequences.
“When you’re talking about something like putting a person who is empowered and armed in a position of responsibility, it only takes one instance of that authority being misappropriated to create a tragedy, and it’s not something that you can fix afterwards,” she said.
Provost Sunil Kumar, who spoke for the University alongside Hitchcock at the forum, said that the students were describing worst-case scenarios which are “extremely unlikely.”
“Given that this will be a unit of Hopkins, we fully expect it to reflect the values of the University,” he said. “Examples of things we would want to augment in training are handling mental health issues, conflict management, community policing, de-escalation... and fair and impartial policing practices to minimize and prevent problems like racial profiling.”
One student expressed her support for the proposal. She said it was an important step in protecting students against mass shootings, which she said was a bigger issue than rising crime rates in Baltimore.
Another student said that there have been five times as many fatalities from police shootings as from mass shootings in 2018.
According to the Washington Post, there have been 21 deaths from mass shootings this year, while police violence has claimed 253, meaning there have been 12 times as many fatalities from police shootings as from mass shootings.
Following this, some students expressed concerns that the increased police presence and potential for police shootings would hurt the Baltimore communities that neighbor Hopkins campuses.
On the other hand, Hitchcock said that there is a distrust of the BPD in the City and that community members want to be engaged on the issue.
“We are not here to tell the community what they want to hear or say but to listen to what they have to say and to bring that information back and to have policy be affected by that,” she said.
Andrea Fraser, a graduate student in the Departments of Geography and Environmental Engineering, said that the administration has failed to address the mistrust many community members feel towards the University.
“The minute you hit ‘send’ on what you wanted to do before considering everyone else, you neglected all the other stakeholders that are important,” Fraser said. “You should have consulted everyone first before proceeding with this house bill. Now we’re all scrambling to get our voices heard.”
