“BALTIMORE (WBFF) – FOX45 first reported what the union for
prison officers said was a huge spike in assaults on officers, at the
Maryland Reception Diagnostic and Classification Center (MRDCC)
in Baltimore City.
Assault numbers came from the state, and were compared to the
first four months of 2015 to 2016, which indicated that assaults
occurred 12 times more often this year over last (3 vs. 37).
However, the state says assaults did not actually increase
but rather, the attacks are better tracked.” – By Paul McGrew
