BLADENSBURG, Md. (WJLA) – Prince George’s County Police detectives fanned out across a Bladensburg neighborhood Friday night, in hopes of tracking down a possible serial rapist.

“It’s like shock,” said Rafael Tibia, who spoke briefly with investigators. “Police knock on the door and tell us about this.”

Carrying leaflets in both English and Spanish, detectives knocked at homes along the 4100 block of 54th Street, the area of an attack on Wednesday night.

“I’m scared for the area,” said Latin salon owner Maria Garcia, who says she’s concerned for the safety of her clientele.

“I [make] sure my customers have secured a ride. But it’s dark. I’m sorry, it’s too dark,” she added.

Police are now investigating three sexual assaults, all within a 10-minute walk of each other.

“We’ve stepped up patrols, both covert and overt,” said Prince George’s County Police Officer Michael Owen, a department spokesperson. “Some things you can see, some things you can’t see.”

The Wednesday attack occurred around 7:45 p.m.

“They just told us that somebody got hit in the head,” Christian Garcia said.

Investigators say the victim was then sexually assaulted.

Now, detectives believe her attacker may be connected to two previous assaults, one on Sept. 8, 2014, near a wooded trail along the 5100 block of Quincy Street, and again on Oct. 20, along the 5800 block of Annapolis Road.

“Does something like this surprise you, that something like this could happen?” Tibia was asked.

“Yes, big time,” he answered. “We don’t have any of these things happening in this neighborhood.”

Police aren’t saying how the cases are linked. But the after-dark nature of the most recent attack has some residents nervous.

Hundreds of Maryland teachers disciplined by the state.

635603981457317887-Still0224-00000

WASHINGTON — Nearly 400 teachers in Maryland have had their teaching licenses yanked in just the last few years many without proper due process of the law due to a culture of impunity currently in progress within the Maryland State Department of Education and elsewhere within the counties. Child sex abuse. Child exploitation. Drug and alcohol use. The list goes on and on. The whole system needs a major change with the top leadership in the state level fired without much delay.

“It’s completely mortifying. It should not be happening in this day and age,” said Susan Burkinshaw, a parent and child safety advocate.

The database comes from the Maryland State Department of Education. It includes teachers facing disciplinary action from 2008 until now. The list consists of 397 teachers in seven years. Fourteen of them are from Montgomery County. The list does not include other school personnel or contractors facing similar accusations.

Here’s a breakdown of disciplinary action against teachers by county and by cause:http://bit.ly/1FY9u5f

Dr. Lillian M. Lowery Maryland State Superintendent of schools (Pictured above) has been criticized for showing very poor leadership skills in various ways including discriminatory conduct. She has received an F grade for Common Core meetings and other reform implementations in Maryland so far. Above all, she does not believe in the due process of the law and continues to contribute to the culture of impunity.

In our opinion, We aver and therefore believe Maryland State Board of Education President Dr. Charlene Dukes (shown here) has demonstrated a culture of corrupt leadership style and continues “an integrated pattern of pay to play,” High suspension rates, violation of due process rights, manipulation inter alia during her tenure as President for Maryland State Board of Education.

Md. Senate President Apologizes for Hitler Comment.

Maryland+state+house2

Maryland Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller has apologized for citing Adolf Hitler while disputing a statement by the state’s governor about the number of tax increases in recent years.

Miller, a Democrat, was responding Friday to statements made by Republican Gov. Larry Hogan that Maryland lawmakers approved more than 40 tax increases in the last eight years.

Miller told reporters Friday, “Hitler said that the bigger lie you tell, the more easily it’s believed. I’m certainly not equating anyone with Adolf Hitler, but this 48 tax increases over the past eight years is total horse s—.”

Miller later issued a statement saying the purpose of his comment was to illustrate “the absurdities” of attacks on Maryland’s economy, and apologized to anyone offended by his comments.

“As I said at the time, I was not equating the governor with Hitler, nor pulling the ‘Hitler Card,’” Miller said. “The purpose of my comment was to simply illustrate the absurdities of the attacks on Maryland’s economy. I truly apologize to anybody who was offended by my comments.”

The comments reflect lingering frustration between Democrats and the new Republican governor, who angered Democrats in his State of the State speech this month for describing Maryland’s economy as “floundering” due to high taxes, over-regulation and an anti-business attitude. Hogan’s campaign focused almost entirely on economic issues, particularly tax increases approved in the last eight years. Hogan’s victory came in a state where registered Democrats outnumber Republicans by a 2-1 margin.

Hogan and Miller have met privately since the speech. They also attended a University of Maryland basketball game together this week.

Frustration by Democrats, who control both houses of the Legislature, has played out in delayed votes in the Senate to confirm Hogan’s Cabinet appointees. Hogan’s speech was specifically cited as a reason why a vote was delayed for a week by the Senate, so senators could take more time to make sure the nominees were up to the jobs. They were approved a week later in a unanimous vote this month.

A hearing on other Cabinet nominees this week was extended to Monday.
