Joseph Lynn Kitchen is part of the swamp in Prince George’s County

Thursday, April 19, 2018 – Here’s a post by Julian Lopez attacking loud-mouthed YD former boss, Joseph Lynn Kitchen, badly.

When Mr. Kitchen was questioned about major violations of law he has committed in Maryland, he denied he was the one through his Twitter account. However, everyone knows it’s Mr. Kitchen who was arrested.

Mr. Kitchen who calls himself a  “Reverend” at one time dropped the tag after being challenged for being in the closet in Maryland. In short, He has a long history of misleading and lying to the community while undermining his base. It now appears, he has met his match this time around and is cornered like a rat.

This guy (Julian Lopez) who is a candidate and running for at large County council seat in Prince George’s county Maryland as democrat, is not playing around with corruption. Vote for him on June 26th primary. He has no mercy on the bad guys, Eh! Eh!

It is over for Delegate Dereck E. Davis and Delegate Darryl Barnes as Mel Spruil, Wala Blegay, Nick Charles and Kent Roberson joins District 25 race to dethrone!

Mel Spruill is running for delegate in District 25. With the Angela Angel vacancy because she’s running for Senate and the moral vacancy of Dereck, the Crooked Weasel, Davis people are getting excited about running for delegate. An activist who cares about the people of the county, if Mel Spruill goes door to door, she is expected to win big time.

In a race resembling an action movie, the race for Delegate seat in District 25 of Prince George’s county has become even more interesting based on the issues and candidates involved. Action films are films based on action sequences, such as fighting, stunts, car chases etc which take precedence over elements like character development or complex plots.

For many years now, Delegate Dereck E. Davis has held the Delegate seat for district 25. He was joined by Delegate Darryl Barnes to represent the same district in the last election. However, we already highlighted in this blog why Delegate Dereck E. Davis should have resigned a long time ago after he created a law to benefit him personally and his wife.

Delegate Darryl Barnes was elected with the help of Rushern Baker III.  He therefore represents the interests of the establishment and the crooked lot in the county politics.

Due to conflicts of interest in the Maryland legislature, Delegate Darryl Barnes was appointed last week to be the new Chairman for Education sub committee for Prince George’s County in Annapolis.   Mr. Barnes hit the ground running and has since changed the rules of the game which raised the eye brows with many of the voters in the county complaining he has been bribed to screen and keep things under the table. This move to cover up and his engagement in white collar violations has angered many which has led to Ms. Mel Spruil, Wala Blegay, Nick Charles and Kent Roberson to enter the the race for Delegate for proper leadership of the District 25 in prince George’s county.

As a result of the entry of new candidates in Prince George’s County District 25, it’s over for Delegate Dereck E. Davis and Delegate Darryl Barnes!

Wala Blegay (seen here center flagged by Board of Education Member Edward Burroughs III) has received endorsement of CASA and several unions. If she continues to go door to door like she has been doing, she is expected to win.

Kent A. Roberson is running to be a Delegate for District 25. A very humble gentleman and Church going family man, is expected to fight hard for one of the slots in the race for Delegate.

Delegate Dereck E. Davis is in major hot water. According to Barry O’Connell of the Maryland politics, “Dereck Davis the delegate has been blocking the $15 an hour minimum wage and has come out strongly in favor a foreign-owned beer factory. He’s not good for the people and it does not look like he’s going to have an easy time holding his seat this time around. People are finally wising up to the fact that he’s a dirty rotten crooked weasel.”

PGCPS Teens Charged in String of Robberies Targeting Cab Drivers

224AAD65-DF46-428F-8536-09DC98A9E232Prince George’s County police say five teenagers are responsible for a string of robberies targeting cab drivers, including a shooting that left one driver critically injured.

The teens charged are linked to two separate robbery sprees, police said Thursday.

Malik Samuels and Robert Walker, both 17, are charged with the attempted murder of a cab driver.

Police say the cab driver went to the 9000 block of Ballard Lane in Clinton, Maryland, to pick up a fare at 2:35 a.m. Wednesday. When he arrived, the suspects approached him. The teens demanded money and then shot the victim, according to police.

Violent Night in Prince George’s Leaves 1 Dead, 1 Injured
Neighbors found the man lying in the street.

“All of a sudden we heard four or five shots. I got up and look out of the window and then I saw the guy lying on the ground,” said Ronald Currie, a neighbor who called 911.

As Currie looked from his window, he said he saw an act of kindness when it was needed the most.

“He brought a blanket and covered him up with the blanket. It all kind of happened at the same time,” Currie said of the neighbor who came to the aid of the victim.

The victim was taken to the hospital in critical but stable condition.

Two hours later, a cab driver expecting to pick up a customer in the area of Woodlawn Boulevard and Torington Place in Largo encountered the teens.

Both boys got into his cab and demanded money and the car. Police say the teens got away with the cab, and the driver was not hurt.

Three other teens are facing charges in a string of similar robberies. Police say the suspects targeted cab and ride-share drivers during the week of Jan. 15.

In each crime, police say one of the suspects posed as a customer and rode in the victim’s car before the crime was committed.

Jose Ponce-Coreas, 19; Demonte Johnson, 16; and Christian Tejada, 18, have admitted their involvement in the crimes, according to police. All three remain in police custody.

PGCPS investigating allegations coaches bullied, harassed members of C.H. Flowers HS cheer squad

344FBAC8-A4EB-4474-B029-7CBB0000D00CSPRINGDALE, Md. – In a 6-page letter obtained by FOX 5, a group of at least a half-dozen parents allege that coaches bullied, harassed and hazed members of the novice cheer squad at Charles Herbert Flowers High School in Prince George’s County.

The letter outlines allegations of coaches calling students profane names, mismanagement of program fees and physical retribution in the form of extra exercise for students whose parents complained about the practices.

The parents did not speak on the record with FOX 5 for fear of retribution aimed at their daughters, but they chose community activist and Maryland State Senate candidate Everett Browning to speak on their behalf.

“We all understand tough love, understand coaching, but calling a young lady who has come for a cheerleading team, constantly calling her a b***h, constantly calling her other words to her face, calling her dumb, stupid and telling her she’s not good enough to be a part of the program is unacceptable,” said Browning.

The letter also details student complaints about being pushed to exercise to the point of absolute exhaustion.

“[They are] pushing some of these ladies to where they are throwing up and physically sick and ill, and they are threatened not to tell their parents about it because if they do, they are threatened, they will be thrown off the team,” Browning said.

He said when the parent complaints to coaching staff continued, the novice squad was disbanded.

“This has been going on for almost a year and unfortunately when the parents decided to stand up together, the coach decided to disband the team,” Browning said. “So instead of addressing it, they just told these girls you are no longer going to be able to come here and participate.”

Prince George’s County Public Schools spokesperson John White confirmed the school district is investigating the allegations and conducting interviews with staff and students. The principal is in the process of meeting with parents to address their concerns.

“We always want to make sure that our staff and our coaches are treating children with the same respect that they would want to receive and so we take the allegations seriously,” said White. “We have begun to interview students as well as adults in the building to find out exactly what has occurred.”

The parents are asking that the coaches be replaced, their money be accounted for and the school to guarantee their daughters can participate in cheer and be protected from harassment.

Angry parents call for PGCPS CEO to step down

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — Parents in Prince George’s County are calling for Prince George’s County Public School CEO, Dr. Kevin Maxwell, to step down after an independent audit revealed thousands of students had their grades changed to boost graduation rates.
This comes after Governor Larry Hogan held an hour-long meeting with the Prince George’s County NAACP and parents about the audit’s findings.

“The CEO must go! He does not care about our children. The CEO must go!.”, shouted a parent during a news conference following Governor Hogan’s meeting, calling for accountability in the grading scandal that has rocked PGCPS.

“That investigation turned up wide-spread corruption and wrongdoing.”, said Governor Hogan.

An independent audit commissioned by the Maryland State Board of Education found that thousands of graduates from 2016 and 2017 had failing grades for at least one quarter, which were later changed after the cutoff dates.
It further stated that over 150 students graduated in 2017, despite having over 50 absences for the school year.

Yolanda Rogers is a parent with five children who have attended PGCPS schools, of whom three have graduated.

She said the grading scandal has had a huge impact on her kids.

“I have two children that’s graduated with A’s in English, B’s in Math and when they tested in college, they tested for remedial English and remedial Math. That’s problematic for me.”, said Rogers.

Many are now calling for Prince George’s County Executive, Rushern Baker, to get rid of the current chairman and superintendent.

In a statement, John White, spokesperson for PGCPS pointed out that the school system was not invited to today’s meeting, but says Dr. Kevin Maxwell and his leadership team have taken the state audit findings and recommendations very seriously.

PGCPS has until the end of the month to respond to the audit and submit a plan of action.

Officials from Prince George’s County Public Schools have said that an action plan is in the works to improve grading and graduation certification.

County Executive, Rushern Baker could not be reached for comment.
