Two Baltimore detectives convicted of racketeering and robbery.

I am very supportive of the Police but like the Army a few turds ruin it for everyone. When they get caught they should get the maximum because not only did they break the law they broke the trust of their community, their organization and their fellow officers/soldiers.

Two Baltimore police detectives were convicted of robbery, racketeering, and conspiracy Monday in a trial that's part of an ongoing federal investigation into corruption among rogue members of the city's beleaguered police force.

After the jury foreman read the verdict following two days of deliberations, Detectives Daniel Hersl and Marcus Taylor were shackled and led out of U.S. District Court in Baltimore. Some of Hersl's relatives burst into tears, while one of his victims called out: "Justice."

The two detectives were each convicted of racketeering conspiracy, racketeering and robbery under the federal Hobbs Act, which prohibits interference with interstate commerce. They face up to 20 years on each count, for a total of 60 years.

On Monday evening, acting U.S. Attorney Stephen Schenning said he was hopeful that the police corruption case "will begin a long difficult process of examining how" the Baltimore force polices its own.

"We hope that police officers live up to the honor and privilege of the badge," Schenning said on the courthouse steps.

The trial was dominated by four ex-detectives who testified that the police department's elite Gun Trace Task Force was actually made up of thugs with badges who stole cash, resold looted narcotics and lied under oath to cover their tracks. They detailed acts of astonishing police criminality, including armed home invasions, stretching back to 2008.

This is very disgusting. The fact they could operate for so long and have as much reach tells me that many turned a blind eye to their actions.

They will not have easy time in the pen.

Meanwhile, PLENTY of GOOD, honest people's lives have been destroyed by their actions. How do they recover from lost jobs, family, property, etc. The damages these JBT's have inflicted is irreparable. How do they recover from years of lost income, damage to their relationships, loss of insurance and certainly mental and physical health damage. The hole they bury the JBT's is too shallow. And the taxpayers will be burdened for decades after the lawsuits are settled.

In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man
is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more
is a congress." - John Adams (1735-1826)

That's why they call it hard time. These two will likely never see general population, they'll be in segregation for their safety.
