Federal prosecutors in Maryland indicted a former Baltimore Police sergeant on Tuesday for planting evidence, WBAL-TV reports.

Former Sgt. Keith Gladstone was charged with conspiracy to deprive civil rights, conspiracy to commit offenses against the United States and witness tampering.

“In light of the indictment, the Baltimore Police Department announced Tuesday that three other officers would be suspended and investigated by the Internal Affairs department,” The Baltimore Sun reports.

Gladstone is accused of planting a BB gun on Demetric Simon, who had been intentionally run over by Sgt. Wayne Jenkins.

2. Friend of mine moved from Baltimore to Georgia...

He said the cops in Baltimore are so corrupt they stink on ice.

And he says corrupt cops there are not the exception, they are the rule.

No wonder he got out when he could.

3. Uhhhhhh..... where's the story talk about 'intentionally run over'????

Maybe I'm blind, but I didn't see any mention of that in the linked article.

5. 4th paragraph.

It's the guy he planted the gun on who was intentionally run over.

7. The title is not clear

It sounds as if the Sergeant to who was indicted for planting the gun was " intentionally run over by fellow officer" which is why I clicked.

The last sentence of the post clarifies, but I had to look for it because I was expecting something else.

17. No matter how many times cops claim "suspects" are trying to run over them it usually doesn't happen

They seem to be remarkably light on their feet, and also people trying to run away usually aren't invested in time-consuming efforts to murder policemen with their cars.

11. Protect & Serve Is NOT an OPTION

To many EVIL people are hired by the POLICE. It is time to send the EVIL ONES to prison for their crimes against the public. This should be national or world news.

12. The arrogance of this man is incredible. He was absolutely sure he would get away with it.

That is why he did it. There was no worry that he could be indicted or arrested. He was sergeant in the police force, and I guess he had gotten away with other crimes like this. I hope he is convicted and faces in prison those that he sent to prison.

15. Because we keep letting them get away with it.

If we'd convict some of these assholes and stick them in gen. pop. there'd be some real deterrence value.

13. Most important...These cops were relatively sure they wouldn't be caught.

There is no doubt in my mind that these cops never imagined they would be caught. A sergeant in the police force of a major city knows the consequences. He is sure he will not be caught, that is why he does it. In this case, Gladstone is covering for a friend, another sergeant Wayne Jenkins. Jenkins was sentenced to 25 years in jail for the crimes he did as a cop. So both were sergeants in the Baltimore Police Department, and were relatively sure they would get away with any crimes they committed. As sergeants they had been around a long time. Seen a whole lot, and gained insight into the "system." That is why they had the arrogance to do what they did. Who would catch them and who would punish them?..
..Note: it was the federal government that charged Gladstone, not the Baltimore Police Department.

14. Sgt. Wayne Jenkins now serving 25 years

Former Baltimore Police Department Sgt. Keith Gladstone pleaded not guilty to federal civil rights and witness tampering charges on Tuesday in connection with a 2014 incident that involved members of a corrupt police task, according to an indictment.
...
Jenkins was sentenced to 25 years in prison for multiple crimes, including drug dealing and robbery, as head of the department's elite Gun Trace Task Force, a nine-member squad that allegedly spent years robbing citizens, extorting drug dealers and filing false reports, according to the U.S. attorney's office.
...
Gladstone retired from the department in 2012, returned a year later and retired again in 2017. If convicted, Gladstone faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, prosecutors said.

https://abcnews.go.com/US/baltimore-officers-planted-gun-man-deliberately-running-indictment/story?id=61498790

Planting the gun was standard procedure for this mob - DU a year ago:

Supervisor told Baltimore Cops to always keep a toy-gun ready to plant it on shooting-victims.

https://www.theroot.com/baltimore-cops-kept-toy-guns-to-plant-just-in-case-they-1822546984

By the time they finished investigating, eight members of the elite Gun Trace Task Force had been charged with crimes ranging from racketeering to robbery.

You want robbery? How about the story of the corrupt squad stopping a drug dealer during a traffic stop and robbing him of $6,500, then going to the man’s home without a warrant and taking another $100,000 out of a safe? Sgt. Wayne Jenkins would ask suspected drug dealers, “If you could put together a crew of guys and rob the biggest drug dealer in town, who would it be?”

...

And then there’s the revelation that the supervisor of the unit instructed officers to carry a toy gun just in case they found themselves “in a jam” and needed to plant one. When one of the officers, Marcus Tayor, was arrested, officials couldn’t figure out why he had a toy gun in his glove compartment.

...

I know what you’re thinking: After the death of Freddie Gray and the discovery of multiple officers who planted drugs on suspects, the Baltimore Police Department is one of the most corrupt departments in the country.

Or maybe Baltimore is indicative of police departments all over the country. Maybe they’re like the one in Cleveland, which hired the cop who killed Tamir Rice after he was fired by another police department. Or like the South Carolina state trooper who said he shot a man because he was moving erratically while reaching for his wallet. Or when a paid police informant planted cocaine in a store owner’s shop.
