Black in Blue; MSP discriminates against its own.
Black and White and Thin Blue Lines’ co-hosts, Serge Antonin and Clarke Ahlers, discuss the intersection of Maryland law enforcement and race in a discussion about the recent complaint from African-American state troopers that they are under-represented on the Maryland State Police, singled out for discipline, and treated more harshly than white troopers in administrative disciplinary decisions.
This complaint was the subject of an NBC Washington investigative report by Tracee Wilkins, the Prince George’s County Bureau Chief. The Associated Press has published articles in the Washington Post, the Baltimore Sun, and the Maryland Daily Record about this issue.
Serge and Clarke discuss the complaint, statistics about African-American participation on the Maryland State Police and personal experiences in defending some involved troopers.
