Prince George’s County Democratic party officials are in uncharted territories after the Maryland Republican candidates have moved in with speed to save groups which they have neglected in the midst of the county and other parts of Maryland.

Even with the prospect of a contested June 26th primary which saw a number of questionable candidates elected into public office fraudulently, the Democratic party’s problems in the county are far from over. Never before has a political amateur and outsider grabbed a party’s nomination exercise against the wishes of pretty much the entire party leadership as seen now.

After this blog made an expose on the role Africans in diaspora plans to play this year, democratic party officials in Maryland hurriedly called a press conference at Largo and invited Mr. Brian Frosh and Congressman Brown as part of a regrouping in order to hide their shenanigans and save face. (See video below) Mr. Frosh  together with other officials in Maryland had refused previously to endorse Mr. Ben Jealous for Maryland Governor due to conflicts of interests as exposed by Washington Post.

A new political group with ties to Africa and global audience plans to spend thousands  of dollars in the upcoming election to support Craig Wolf for Maryland Attorney General and other candidates to help fight racism. The group also intends to help pass policies that will help create wealth for Africans, African Americans and other groups globally.

Craig Wolf for Maryland Attorney General is the most feared candidate at the moment by the Democratic party wing of Maryland Politics.  After his name is mentioned, several officials engaged in public corruption are running scared to the “hills”.  “He is the right candidate for the job and has integrity,”said Krystal Williams in Upper Marlboro.  She further added that, “Brian Frosh might have have the money for the campaign but who cares if  he is a racist and corrupt, no right thinking person is going to elect him with those qualities” she added.

A new poll on voters’ attitudes in the nation’s most competitive races around the country and also in Maryland showed that when it comes to perceptions of racism, there are two Americas — one in which people of color are distressed by rhetoric and policies and another in which white Americans are far less convinced that there’s a problem.

Conflicting perceptions of racism have always existed and should be expected, but this year, the divide may shape the outcome of the midterm elections in all positions across the country.

Mr. Wolf is expected to fight corruption heads on once elected to the Public office in November and a lot is expected of him to restore trust within the State government agencies.

Even though majority of Africans have traditionally supported Democrats in Maryland, the Maryland Office of the Attorney General led by Mr. Brian Frosh is accused of advancing corruption within the judiciary,  discriminatory and racist tendencies within state agencies in addition to failing to protect Marylanders first before going to confront the federal government. “It’s Misplaced Priority”.

Sean Suiter’s widow: His death is a ‘murder . . . being covered up’ – Maryland Corruption in plain sight.

By Justin Fenton

The widow of Baltimore Police Detective Sean Suiter is rejecting the findings of an independent review panel that determined her husband took his own life.

“I have the same views and thoughts as the majority of the community, and that is, my husband did not commit suicide,” Nicole Suiter said in her first public comments since his November death. “I will not accept the untimely death of Sean as nothing other than a murder, which is being covered up for reasons unbeknownst to me or my family.”

“Sean did not deserve to die in this manner, and no one deserves to get away with this.”

The review panel released its report Tuesday, concluding that Sean Suiter staged a suicide to appear like a murder. They said the scenario was the only option supported by the evidence, which they detailed in a 200-plus-page report.

“The totality of the evidence builds a compelling case that the conclusion is very well supported,” board chair James “Chips” Stewart said at a news conference Wednesday.

Key to the board’s findings is its conclusion that Suiter likely felt he was a target of the Gun Trace Task Force corruption investigation. His death occurred the day before he was set to appear with limited immunity as a witness before a federal grand jury. The father of five reportedly had asked FBI agents whether he was going to lose his job.

Defense attorney Jeremy Eldridge, whom Sean Suiter had retained, said he would not reveal his interactions with the detective, citing attorney-client privilege. But he blasted the review board, saying members had “selectively chosen” partial information that they were able to glean from Sean Suiter’s cellphone and other sources to paint a picture of a detective worried about his legal future.

“Sean’s last moments are being painted without any facts or evidence, and only assumption, without ever taking care to even attempt to interview his attorney, his wife, any of his [police department] partners, or anybody who was close to him in those moments,” Eldridge said.

Nicole Suiter revealed Wednesday that her husband had not informed her of the grand jury proceedings.

“I feel like he didn’t have nothing to worry about — wasn’t nothing to tell me,” she said.

The review board’s narrative of the day leading up to Suiter’s death includes him communicating with Eldridge about a planned meeting at 5 p.m. to go over his testimony. He was fatally shot just after 4:30 p.m., after telling his partner he believed he saw someone in a vacant lot and wanted to investigate.

“Time was running out,” the board wrote in its report. “Suiter’s futile searches may have signaled a quiet desperation before a final, tragic decision.”

The board said it believes that Suiter picked a junior detective to accompany him to the 900 block of Bennett Place, sent the detective out of view and darted into the lot. There, they say, he fired two shots into the air before shooting himself behind the ear. The partner said he saw Suiter’s body either fall or just after it had fallen, with gun smoke in the air and no shooter in sight. Suiter’s gun, which the board said has been conclusively determined to have fired the fatal shot, was found under his body.

Stewart, a law enforcement consultant who has worked on two previous reviews of Baltimore Police cases since 2011, said that the board’s findings were unanimous among its seven members, which included two retired Baltimore Police homicide detectives and law enforcement officials from out of state.

James “Chip” Coldren Jr., the board’s co-chair, said that despite the report’s conclusions, the board did not try to ascertain Sean Suiter’s psychological state.

“Lord knows what was going on in his mind,” Coldren said. “We can try as hard as we want. We’ll never know everything. The facts we found and we discovered brought us to this conclusion.”

Nicole Suiter said she had talked to her husband less than an hour before his death. She said he was in a “great mood, happy spirit,” and that they joked about a video she had recorded of him dancing.

“Sean asked me what time I got off — I said 10,” she said. “He said, okay, I’ll wait up for you, since I fell asleep on you last night.”

Eldridge maintained that he couldn’t reveal his deliberations with Sean Suiter, but said the board was putting too much emphasis on their 5 p.m. meeting the day of his death.

“Saying there was a ‘final decision’ that needed to be made at 5 p.m. — that creates this exigency that support this notion that he would commit suicide — is a farce,” Eldridge said. “Because there simply was no decision to be made.”

Eldridge, a former prosecutor, said some of the findings used “junk science” that wouldn’t pass muster in a courtroom.

“This is a ruse to give the city closure, and to pull the wool over the city’s eyes about what happened so they’re not worried there’s a killer on the loose,” Eldridge said of the report.

Nicole Suiter met her husband 17 years ago on a blind date. She said he is “deeply missed in my home.”

“We look out the window, see his car out there, thinking he’s coming through the door,” she said.

She has tried to shield their youngest child from the controversy around the case. “But she’s on social media,” she said.

The medical examiner’s office has said it may revisit its official determination that Suiter’s death was a homicide. And that could affect benefits paid out to his family. Duane Stone, an estate attorney from York, Pa., retained by Nicole Suiter, said “some benefits have been received, some benefits have not.”

“This is so outside the realm of normalcy,” Stone said. “I hope there’s honor in Baltimore City, and I hope they . . . will still take care of the widow and be done.”

Nicole Suiter said she was speaking out not as a “heartbroken widow,” but as “an aware individual who has evaluated every piece of evidence that has been shown to me, and with the knowledge that much evidence has not been presented as well as inconsistencies as I have been told.”

“I do not condone violence or war, but I will openly stand with protesters from Baltimore City, around the world, to fight for justice,” she said.

Craig Wolf for Maryland Attorney General (in white polo shirt) is expected to fight corruption heads on once elected to the Public office in November and restore trust within the State government agencies.

Africans in diaspora have created a new political group with plans to spend thousands  of dollars in the upcoming election to support Craig Wolf for Maryland Attorney General and other candidates. In doing so, they are committed to helping pass policies that will help create wealth for Africans and other groups globally.

The group, called the African Community Service, has already raised money for awards and hope to raise much more in the coming months. In its first set of endorsements Saturday September 1st, 2018, the group said it was supporting Mr. Craig Wolf , who is running for the Office of the Maryland Attorney General in November General Election against incumbent Mr. Brian Frosh. The African Community Service Awards(ACSA) event is held annually to recognize individuals, or groups who have sacrificed their time and resources for the benefit of Africans globally.

Craig Wolf is listed as Keynote Speaker for the 2018 Award ceremony which will be held at Hilton Alexandria Mark Center, 5000 Seminary Rd, Alexandria, VA 22311. Wolf is the Republican Candidate for Attorney General (State of Maryland) in the November elections.

Mr. Wolf said, “Honored to have the support of Sylvester Okere – and look forward to speaking at the African Community Service Awards on September 1.

Maryland needs the Attorney General who is capable to protect Marylanders first before going to confront the federal government. “It’s Misplaced Priority”   #BrianFroshPutPoliticsAside #ProtectMarylanders #IamForCraig Wolf#4AG”

According to Mr. Ben Jealous (a candidate for Governor of Maryland in November general Election) said, “Violent crime is up 10 percent and murders have increased by 50 percent across Maryland. A key component for making our state safer has to be reducing recidivism by ensuring the formerly incarcerated are able to get the skills they need to find employment.”

PGCPS to Close District Heights Elementary – students to move to new building for renovations after mold found

Still0403_00010_1491278119549_3070557_ver1.0_640_360By: Lindsay WattsMelanie Martinez

 – Less than two weeks before the first day of school, a Prince George’s County elementary school will be shut down due to mold.

The plan to close District Heights for the entire school year was made public at a school board meeting Thursday night as the building will undergo renovations.

In the meantime, students will be sent to nearby Forestville High School, which has been vacant since it closed two years ago.

Last year, parents and staff at District Heights Elementary School claimed that the building was unsafe and mold was causing students and staff to get sick.

Despite some disturbing images provided to FOX 5 from inside the school that appeared to show mold on ceiling tiles along with water damage, Prince George’s County Public Schools maintained last year that there was no dangerous mold and the school was safe based on air quality tests that were conducted.

Interim Prince George’s County Public Schools CEO Monica Goldson said after all the rain recently, mold was discovered on furniture inside the school and she received the results from an internal evaluation last week.

However, Dr. Goldson said she believes the school was safe for students to attend last year.

“When I looked at the report and compared the air quality in this year’s report that I requested and last year’s, the air quality was fine,” Goldson said. “It wasn’t that it was any worse than before.”

“I’m angry, I’m frustrated, I’m mad, but then I’m happy too because those babies are now removed from that building,” said Phyllis Wright, a mother who pulled her children from the school. “That building needs to be torn down.

“While it may be two weeks before school starts and it’s probably going to be very disruptive, I would recommend that people at least take heart in the fact that the school is being closed and action is being taken,” said parent Angela Washington.

Dr. Goldson said the school will be getting a new $2.5 million air conditioning system and the hope is that will eliminate the mold issue and allow the school to reopen.

Prosecutors move to drop assault charge against PGCPS Chairman in Questionable lot.

Prosecutors have moved to dismiss an assault case against a school board chairman in Prince George’s County who was accused of pushing and threatening a fellow board member after a contentious meeting in July.

The decision this week appears to end an unsettling episode, where board chairman Segun C. Eubanks faces a second-degree assault charge. Online records have shown a trial date in October.

“The matter will be dismissed based on our screening of the case because of insufficient evidence,” said Ramon Korionoff, spokesman for the state’s attorney’s office in Montgomery County, which was handling the matter for its neighboring suburb.

Prosecutors in Prince George’s County steered the complaint to Montgomery County to avoid the potential appearance of a conflict of interest, said John Erzen, spokesman for Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office.

The assault charge was filed by school board member Edward Burroughs III, who alleged that Eubanks shoved him against a bookcase — in a room outside of public view — and yelled, “I will f— you up” several times while pointing a finger in his face.

The incident followed a heated board discussion about a payout of nearly $800,000 to the school system’s outgoing chief executive, Kevin M. Maxwell, who was stepping down from the role amid a string of scandals, as well as a call for Eubanks’s resignation.

Eubanks, chairman of the board since 2013, was appointed by County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) after Baker persuaded state lawmakers to give him greater control of the low-performing system. Burroughs is an elected member, in his 10th year of service, and part of a vocal board minority bloc.

In a statement Wednesday night, Eubanks said he was pleased but not surprised by the result and called the allegations false and reckless, asserting that prosecutors found them “baseless and without merit.”

Eubanks said he was “evaluating options to seek redress and reparations for this wholly unnecessary ordeal.”

“Now that these irresponsible allegations have been put to rest, it is my hope that all board members can put other agendas aside and join me in focusing on serving the school children of Prince George’s County,” Eubanks said.

Bruce Marcus, an attorney for Eubanks, echoed many of the same points, saying it was regrettable that “irresponsible and undisciplined individuals would attempt to manipulate our judicial system in order to promote their own interests.”

But Burroughs stood by his account of the incident, providing a written statement penned by a witness in the room. Burroughs said he was told Tuesday by the Montgomery County official screening his case that she did not have a working phone number for that person — and had not talked to the person.

“It really is disappointing to think that something like that could occur and there not be any consequences,” Burroughs said. “It’s like middle school bullying.

Burroughs said most people in the room that night were members of the board majority and that one person in the room called him the next day to say the board members would not back up his allegations.

“I proceeded anyway,” he said. “But I knew the reality.”

Prosecutors had no comment on details of their decision-making, Korionoff said.

Following the July 12 incident, Burroughs also filed for a temporary restraining order against Eubanks. But he dropped it after a phone call that included Eubanks and lawyers for both sides. Burroughs said at the time a resolution had been reached and his fear of being attacked for disagreeing with Eubanks was alleviated.

But he did not withdraw his assault complaint.

How the episode may affect the school board is an open question. Both Eubanks and Burroughs said they do not expect problems. The school board was scheduled to meet Thursday night.

“We are professionals, and I look forward to a productive meeting tonight and moving forward,” Eubanks said.

Seven PGCPS schools in Bowie test high for lead in water

By Jack Chavez

At least seven of the 14 Bowie-area public schools tested for high concentrations of lead in their drinking water since 2017, according to an internal report from the county school system. The county has taken remediation steps since elevated lead levels surfaced.

While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends water be shut off at any faucet where lead exceeds 20 parts per billion, the county takes action at 10 ppb, because schools are open longer than the six-hour day the EPA used to determine their threshold. Water sources tested include fountains and food preparation areas. They don’t include showers or bathroom sinks.

Letters concerning the findings will be sent to parents this school year.

At the Belair Annex, where the freshman class of Bowie High School takes classes, at least three outlets tested high in February. One drinking source tested at 377 ppb, then tested at 84.2, while another tested at 203 and 24.5 ppb. Another source nearly tripled on its second test.

Other results for tests taken in 2017, were the main campus of Bowie High where two water sources were found with high concentrations of lead and shut down, Heather Hills Elementary (two sources), High Bridge Elementary (two sources), Pointer Ridge Elementary (two sources), Yorktown Elementary (one source) and Chapel Forge Early Childhood Center (one source).

Nearly every outlet that tested high was tested again to ensure accuracy and determine if replacing the fixture solved the problem. Schools that tested high at first, but passed subsequent tests, were Tall Oaks Vocational (four sources), Whitehall Elementary (one source) and Rockledge Elementary (one source).

“A lot of the fixtures in old buildings have lead in them,” schools spokesman John White said. “So we replaced fixtures where the water might test high, then we retest the water.”

Sources that remained high after testing were shut off and capped, White said. Only drinking water sources were tested. Signs are posted to not drink non-potable water.

The latest round of tests satisfies the requirements laid out under a new law that states all public and nonpublic schools be tested by July 1, if they were built before 1988. Schools built after 1988 have until July 2019 to submit test results.

Northview Elementary School, which is a little more than a decade old, tested nearly perfectly, with just three of 128 sources testing for trace amounts of lead, which was under the county’s threshold.

The county is taking additional steps by installing multiple filtered water fountains in every school. Installations began at the end of the 2017-18 school year.

“We want to provide that additional layer with the filtered water fountains because we know students and staff will often want to refill bottles,” White said.

A timetable for all Bowie schools to be outfitted with filtered water fountains was not immediately available.

School board member Raaheela Ahmed, who represents each of the affected schools, could not be reached for comment.

Mom says daughter was touched inappropriately by classmate, furious PGCPS didn’t tell her

d6d12bea-e8d7-470e-9564-d7b427439ac6_1140x641By Hilary Lane

PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY, MD — A Prince George’s County mother said her daughter was touched inappropriately by a classmate and administrators never notified her.

She only found out when her 7-year-old daughter told her about the incident. She then began asking questions.

The school system confirmed the incident happened back on May 7th at Andrew Jackson Academy in Prince George’s County.

“I want answers. I am not even suing. I just want answers,” said the mother, who has asked for her identity to be concealed.

The child’s mother said the night after the incident happened, her daughter was clingy, restless, and was having nightmares.

After asking her daughter what was wrong, her daughter finally told her what happened in school.

“My daughter said ‘mommy, he touched me on the butt. I told him to stop but he didn’t,'” said Mom.

According to a district spokesperson, the touch was believed to have been “accidental”, and therefore the child’s mother was not notified.

“They completely failed my daughter,” said the mother.

According to school spokesperson, the boy was transferred to another class and was disciplined.

“Schools normally do not contact police to press charges or contact Child Protective Services when children are so young (7 years old). Schools counsel and teach the children about inappropriate touching. The school made sure the students were no longer in the same class. The school also provided the parent with information and assistance on homeschooling,” said John White, a school spokesperson.

White added that the school’s principal did have “a lengthy conversation” with the child’s mother. She said that was only after she went to the school furious and demanded to speak to the principal because she was never notified.

“I had to go to them on everything,” said the mother.

She said she is speaking out now, because she wants the school district’s policies changed so another mother is never again left in the dark.

“It’s not like I am just fighting for my own child. I am fighting for all the other children who have been through this and maybe some adults too and didn’t have no one to fight for them ,” she said.

WUSA9 requested data from the district, to determine if more students were touched inappropriately and parents were not notified.

According to a spokesperson, the school doesn’t keep track of that type of data and is not required to report it to the state.

If your child has been touched inappropriately, here are some resources to help determine what to do next:
