Thanks -- Bill O'Reilly in a factor follow up segment tonight a huge scandal unfolding in Maryland.
As we reported last week 25 people have been indicted on federal racketeering charges all of whom.
We're associated with the jail call the Baltimore detention center.
Four prison guards for were impregnated.
By a gang leaders serving time inside the center.
That man -- my wife also was allegedly running a drug that rain.
From the press.
This is going on for four years.
Before the arrest came down.
This isn't the first time there was a scandal at a -- in prison.
2009 the feds charge 24 people including four corrections officers.
With drugs and weapon charges at the former Merrill and penitentiary in Baltimore.
In most situations governor Martin O'Malley.
And the secretary of public safety and correctional service Gary Maynard.
We're in charge.
Yet O'Malley and Maynard admitted no wrongdoing at all and say they've done a good job a good job.
Overseeing the prisons.
The security chief of the Baltimore detention center and she develop miles is finally removed.
-- the depressed began hammering home out.
But Maynard kept his job which is amazing.
So I have added it was this prison Jesse Watters did a number of interviews to find out.
Corporal -- remove fish would run through there you heard freedom wherever their souls were reduced roaming around assorted.
You put the roller correctional officers -- -- -- certain.
Ball producers at Warner vision and there are some time and I was very noble wants all the work.
All you choose an assistant warden maybe -- hard and once -- -- for so called book guru soared to work with and weren't there.
So no authority figure whatsoever to splints -- you -- -- -- more.
What -- drugs was he running in -- out his place and you couldn't agree growth.
-- -- -- Prescription fruition marijuana and heroin cocaine.
To darker or alcohol.
Very fair with -- being used and sold out in the open -- In front of the correctional officer -- That's astounding.
Re sharpened our first off your shoulders are regarded -- not for everybody has not as everybody has drugs.
Which doesn't sound like a prison.
-- Are you at all concerned about this -- scandal as it's come forward and do you feel that.
O'Malley and Maynard had been responsible -- addressing it.
I I can't believe do.
Born artist and her upper floors -- Charles Russo well you open.
From shock to reach some sort -- And we were shocked as well so waters asked governor O'Malley to explain.
Especially in light of the bill he signed two years ago.
That makes it difficult call for the state of Maryland to discipline -- rocked prison -- Governor quick question for you are you -- anybody accountable for the Baltimore prisons absolutely we are in fact they've been 89 people terminated.
The correction service even before these thirteen.
We initiated this investigation.
In this fight because the Washington Post and the FBI the said that -- Billy you signed in 2000 and -- you're allowed these unionized correctional officers.
A very permissive culture and allow them to run wild you know that's not respond -- that.
I disagree with that assertion and I don't believe in that.
I don't believe that there is any impediment to our ability to root out corruption in our prisons.
Then why governor has this been going on for four years.
Obviously -- state of Maryland is not controlling the prison system.
And of course once a factor got involved O'Malley went on the defense.
It's about the intelligence sharing it's about connecting the dots it's also about not being -- regardless of you know the cheap shots -- Bill O'Reilly or other people take when you go after corruption.
Yeah -- -- reporting the truth is cheap shot TU but not to -- Waters and turned his attention to Gary -- the guy in charge of the prisons who inexplicably.
Is still being paid more than a 165000.
Dollars a year.
By the Maryland taxpayers.
The people are calling for your resignation.
Hitler saying it now it should fire you -- how do you react to that you think he should step down.
I think we ought to fix problems we opened at this problem knew what we were getting into we did I think we ought to fix it that's what we're doing.
You think you're the man to fix the problem and -- the -- fix the problem.
You opened the coming on the factor.

Maybe should thank you very much maybe you should I.
Here now is just he was our guys -- is -- He thinks he knows who you are good you've been calling for his resignation for -- and he knows who.
But he -- sound like a moron.
Yeah now wait throughout the whole interview I only used like 452 I.
Honestly think he's either oblivious to the situation -- he lied to me because he said he visited this facility a few times and never saw anything but -- -- ex con who we interviewed.
There's no way not to know what's going -- and this and I don't.
Yeah the facility this is the second -- not the first time right there yet another pretty I win this was not a contract so obviously not doing their job -- we had a hard time finding out about the war he said he never saw the -- right.
What happened to the warden why would they tell us what happened to the warden will they're turning over a lot of wardens right now there's been three or four over the last six years.
The last information we got after I tried to get it all day long Tug hill was this guy who is the word and only six months ago.
