THE WIRE: Man Convicted For Smuggling Cocaine & Heroin

For those who continue to think The Wire is fiction (attention Mayor Dixon & Governor O'Malley)

Derrick "Prince" Gilliard was sentenced to 25 years in federal prison on Friday for conspiracy to import heroin and cocaine. In a plea deal, he admitted to bringing in over 150 kilos of coke and heroin, but was convicted of a much smaller amount. The government referred to Prince as a "seasoned drug smuggler and businessman."

He was known to recruit women couriers who he sent overseas with large sums of money, and they came back to Baltimore with kilos of drugs which was then redistributed. The women were paid between $8,000 and $12,000 per trip and imported over 600 kilos of cocaine and heroin into the United States.

So, if this was just one man. Imagine how many others out there haven't been caught yet?

To all those who willfully, deliberately and routinely violate the civil rights of law abiding American Citizens; Yes, you're powerful. Sure, you're everywhere. But this is still America, and the Constitution of the United States Of America still reigns supreme as the law of the land. The Baltimore Spectator will vigorously and aggressively defend against any and all attempts at spying and suppression. Let it be known to all that we are already aware of the regular monitoring and shadowing attempts. There is nothing to hide, but cross the line and there will be hell to pay.

In the end, efforts to impinge upon the freedoms of the people will ultimately fail. Some of us may get taken out in the ongoing battle for true and lasting freedom, but as I've said many times before, and will say till the day I die or get taken out by you goons, THERE ARE MORE OF US, THAN THERE ARE OF YOU.
