Dead Man Inc.

The History Channel's "Gangland" series focused Thursday night on Maryland's Dead Man Inc., a white prison gang, and the timing couldn't have been any better.

Just yesterday, the City Paper reported on its Web site that federal prosecutors said the Black Guerrilla Family offered DMI $10,000 to do hits on corrections officers and anyone else who helped with or conducted the investigation that led to 24 recent indictments that outlined how the BGF was able to carry out gang business while enjoying a decadent lifestyle behind bars.

"There’s been a hit placed out on several correctional officers named in this kite, and all others involved in this investigation, and that would include prosecutors," a federal prosecutor told U.S. District Court magistrate judge Beth Gesner, according to the City Paper. A “kite" is a letter or note sent between inmates.

Last night's special, which teetered dangerously close to glorification of the violent gang and its activities, featured interviews with members who gave their names and also provided information about the gang's origins and recent upheaval and a power struggle. I checked news clippings dating back several years and could find no real account of how the gang got started, so that special offered insight in addition to letting proud members boast and show off tattoos.

According to the members, the gang was started by a man named Perry Roark, 40, who court records show is from Bel Air and is currently being held at the Maryland Correctional Adjustment Center, known as Supermax. Roark, who is white, wanted to join the established Black Guerrilla Family, and though he was respected and knew BGF members, he was not allowed to join because of his race. So he started Dead Man Inc. in the late 1990s to serve as a white off-shoot of the BGF. The main beliefs were anti-government and anti-religion; homosexuals, rapists and snitches need not apply, members said.

The show also listed two other co-founders - James Sweeney and Brian Jordan - who were sent to facilities in Texas and Louisiana, respectively, to break up the gangs activities. But according to the narrator, that only served to spread DMI's influence. The show claimed that DMI has 10,000 members nationwide.

Among those interviewed on camera from behind prison walls were Ricky Tolson, 30, who said he is an "elder" in the gang, and a man named Kristopher "Little Kris" Horner. According to the state's inmate locator, Horner is being held at the Maryland Correctional Institute in Hagerstown, while Tolson has apparently been released since his interview.

Tolson said DMI was in a recent "downward spiral because of infiltration by a lot of people who shouldn't be involved." Tolson, Horner and another member named William Kern said the gang was being overrun by new members who didn't share the group's core values and wouldn't back up others in fights. Members were committing acts of violence against fellow members, and no one knew who to trust. Tolson displayed scars from a stabbing carried out by a fellow member.

Roark, the narrator said, handed down an edict that members not abiding by the rules, or those who illegitimately claimed membership, had until April 13, 2009 to get out or face consequences.

The numbers are significant - the date, 4/13/09, represents the letters DMI in the alphabet. So if the information is accurate, the gang just last week had a major membership purge.

Law enforcement officers interviewed for the special, whose faces were darkened and voices disguised, said the gang is headed for a turning point. Roark wants to keep the status quo and keep the gang affiliated with the BGF. But Sweeney, who is being held in Texas, wants the gang to move more toward white extremism.

A gang investigator from Anne Arundel County said law enforcement is cautiously monitoring Roark's status, as he is eligible to be released from prison in 2010. Though the gang has been predominately prison-based, the officer speculated that Roark's release could lead to increased presence on the street.

"When the main member gets out and can organize them, that's when people should be worried," the officer said.

Roark, as mentioned by court records, is from the Dundalk area...Some addresses are for Bel Air, but that's when he was in a Baltimore County Detention center...Check out some of the other cases and you'll see that info. Zip Code 21222.

Peter, you may know this or may be able to get the information, but does Maryland even have a gang taskforce like other states? I know Baltimore is a city made up of neighborhoods, but it seems more and more that widespread gangs are infiltrating the city and now the state. What is law enforcement doing to combat this?

I had watched the episode that covered DMI ... There was an interview with a Nick H (I didn't catch his full last name, But his name is not in your piece). He had chosen to leave the gang on (or by) 4-13-9 (standing for DMI) ... I don't know if you where at all in contact with any of the people who where involved in these interviews & if you had contact with him how he was doing? ... I feel that he should be given a lot of credit for deciding to change his path & I was curious of how he was doing with his new journey ...
Thank You,
Erin Michelle

The DMI project is trying to tell white boys to take better care of each-other because the government and the media will and is selling you out everyday..Every white person is called a racist because they are white,and these guys are tired of it.. Blacks do what ever they want in every situation,latin people the same..White males are gonna have to start being more like the minoriys in the USA..Stick to your own and hate everyone else..Latin and black people get the right to hate and stick to their own people,jews only hire jews..But when A WHITE GUYS SAYS THE SKY IS DARK HE'S A RACIST AND THE WORLD IS GETTING SICK AND TIRED OF IT.. The last thing the USA wants is awake a sleeping giant,but I for one along wiyth DMI will do my best to wake them!!!! The hand outs are over!!!

After seeing what was aired tonight on the History channel, I am truly saddened to see and hear so many proud of the new-found, nationwide attention that has been brought to ourselves. We have forgotten our three SACRED S's and the moral value in which to act as gentleman instead of gangsters. I personally have sacrificed much for * with no questions or complaints, but the advertisement of senseless violence and false portrayal of common thieves and drug addicts running rampent through our prison systems hurts me deeply. One thing is for certain about that video... Only The True Will Remain. Weeds will be pulled; and those with potential, tree founding roots will taught how to grow. We took an oath for Change, we should settle for nothing less than that. Forward Prgression, overcoming struggle for a chance to elevate mentally, grow morally & prosper financially to achieve our greater goal of one mind, one body & one spirit spreading one love. This is OUR higher calling, not stealing purses from old ladys and slinging knives to support our drug habbits. Desire, Discipline, Dedication & Determination. Love, Loyalty, Respect & Honor... these are values to be proud of; principles that can make this work.


To those that still believe in these simple, beautiful principles, you have my undying loyalty and faith in you. I love and respect you ALL and I want us ALL to continue living with Honor or we will become, yet another, process of History.

I am very familiar with D.M.I. I myself am from Baltimore and know many members personally. Reguardless of the origins stated in the TDC special, the real origin of D.M.I. was whites standing up for whites. I myself was incarcerated in Balto. and, surely would have joined if I were committed for a longer sentence. I was only down for four months though. The point being, when your white, sent to jail and, alone. Your days are numbered. It's a fact!!! So, in the interest of self preservation you must get affiliated. White people are out numbered by 97 to 3 at best. People can say what ever they will. If they found themselves in that situation, they would join too. I witnessed personally those who did not, or could not, such as gays, or sex offenders. It always ends the same. Face down and bleeding in a running shower. So before you judge these guys think, what would you do if you were wrongly convicted, or rightly for that matter? In the end the guys were scared because of the overwhelming predjudice in prison against whites. No matter what, a white guy is seen as racist even if he came from a more oppressed background than those who would accuse him. Slavery is over and white people who are alive today never had any part in it. the vast majority of white people today just want it to go away and , be left alone. I beleive that any racism that still exists today is not based on race but, is based on attitude. I myself am predjudice against anyone who is not considerate of others. Let there be no mistake. D.M.I. was founded because whites in prison were tired of being preyed upon. Now that their together, their strength is enormous. I just wish they would use their strength only in defense instead of using it for profit. Most white people want peace but, in leiu of that, defense is the only other option. Get it together D.M.I. What your doing could be great if it were only directed in the right way. White people should be allowed to be proud and militant also. Just as the other races are so proudly.

Hey I watched the episode on DMI and I am extremely interested in Ricky Tolson. you say he has been released? how would I be able to at least write him? I have searched everywhere and cant find anything on him except this article. please help!!!

DMI suffers from liberal white guilt.

i'm also interested on more info about ricky tolson, since he's been released, if any please email me. thanks!

I would like more information on Ricky Tolson. Can you please forward it to me thanx.

I didn't get to watch this episode but heard about it from a friend. I used to work in Maryland's prison system as a correctional officer. I know all too well the damage DMI can do. I worked at the prison for 5 years. DMI did hits for lots of gangs. I've seen their work over and over again. It's amazing how they get things smuggled in. Lots of dirty CO's working in Maryland prisons. I for one am glad I left. It was too much stress & negativity for me and my family. Maryland prison systems are heading for a full blown riot in the future. I don't even think the National Guard will be able to save those involved.

Chill get out of the gang life.Iknow alot of DMI members most have dope habbits and they most definently don't look out for each other.mabe in prison but not on the streets.(WAKE UP)You can start a new and better life with people who really care .I will pray for all of you! GOD bless!

NOONE CAN JUDGE THESE DMI MEMBERS UNLESS YOU ARE ONE...WHEN YOUR SENTENCE IS LONG TERM...NOW DAYS YOU HAVE TO BE IN SOMETHING OR YOU WILL GET HURT...AND THE WAY HAGESTOWN IS TREATING THE DMI MEMBERS ARE WRONG ...JUST NO NEVER JUDGE UNLESS YOU WERE IN THERE SHOES...THE SYSTEM IS MESSED UP THE WAY THEY TREAT THERE INMATES ARE WRONG!!!!

i spent some time in jail.over the years and the last bit wasnt easy .i had problems with outher inmates .their were bloods ,crips, dmi,13ers ,all in the same pod and if wasnt for a close friend in the dmi probley wouldnt be hear to right this or hold my daughter ,every nite before bed time .lifes different in the joint ,you dont kno unless you have lived it . i have and want to thank the dmi for helping me out when i needed it the most.big p from the dena thank you jbyrd

I am looking for ricky tolson.. if any ones know how to get in touch with him please email me pamelasue54@hotmail.com thanks

I really love how all of the ex-cons and gangbangers are singing the praises of these losers. Don't know how you get White Power out of a group started by a guy who wanted to join a Black gang. All gang members (Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, etc) are punks!

I'm a black man just coming home from the joint, and the author of this article just about got everything right. The D.M.I was started because P is real cool with us and we had his back just like he had ours. But as for the new members, alot of those guys are just looking for protection instead of joining for the right reasons. Now I,m not saying that you need protection, but if you mind your business and be a man you won't have problems. Unless your a rat, a homo,or you've done something to a members family.

I know LIL Kris Horner.. we went to school together he was a quiet kid.. we was homeys CYA when u get out dawg DMI^

this is how i feel its true about how white gys becoming the minority not just in prison in real life like the woman said in a comment before anytime someone white says anything its racist to me its bull and whenever i go anywhere the brothas allways try to act tough and eyeball you stare you down to try to intimidate you same with the hispanics me i am 28 i know i am getting older but it makes me so mad im not what you would call rascist my wife is indian but when i watched this episode on history channel i have to admit i was kinda like happy to see the unity you see so many white boys wanting to be something they're not and the guy named Nick H it stands for hornberger the bottom line is im sick and tired of having to watch what i say or having the other 2 groups of people previously mentioned thinking they can just push us white guys around intimidate etc... if you want to find me my name is bignoggs on myspace

It is so obvious someone is fishing for tolson's info. why would you give it out? that's just stupid

I feel sad for anyone who has to join a gang to feel safe. No one no matter where they are in life should have to feel that way. That being said I just want to say to all people who beat up or kill people of other Races because you don't like them, please stop. Having pride in your nationality is not a reason to hate another I just wish people would understand that. Why should someone have to die for you to have Pride in yourself. I had a cousin lynched by the Klan in 78' he was no more than 16yrs old. They cut off his genitals beat him up real bad and threw him into a boxide mine. No one went to jail for it, about almost 10yrs later a drunk White man crashed into another cousin her her husband and her sister with her daughter. The husband died and the man never went to jail. May 30th, 2009 Christopher D.Jones was killed by some Black kids why?...Death is all that you get when you use might to show your PRIDE...You can have PRIDE in yourself and your nationality and not have to HATE anyone....

The Baltimore Sun reprorted:
"Police said race does not appear to have been a factor, though Christopher was white and the youths charged are black.'

As being related to kris horner and hearing all u clowns talk ur hearts out, just stop stating ur opinions no one gives a flying hoot honestly.

I was just recently released from JCI in Maryland, For you all that think you know about "gangs" and are passing judgements, DMI is the only thing stopping white inmates from being raped and taken advantage of in Prison. There are some flaws but overall it is simply for preservation of whites in prison. I myself never needed to join because I am a pretty strong guy and am street smart. But it really does protect all the white guys who have problems. So for all of you that haven't been in prison please think twice before passing judgements we are outnumbered unamiously in the maryland correctional system. Dmi has began to be more heroin addicts and started to fall apart but you have to understand that we are in Baltimore, the Dope Capital Of America. So please try to understand that most of these guys had no other choice then to join or get taken advantage of.

People are sooooo funnyyy

I was down the pen before there was dmi or any white gang, we always had a click of thorough white boys, but not no big gang, as far as being preyed upon unless the system changed, as long as you act like a man is supposed, you will be all right. The problem was most white boys werent' down for each other, right or wrong in the system, but I knew plenty of bgf, black muslims, who were good dudes, but every has to stick together in the joint, that is how I kick my bits at least.

For all those who don't know what the Dead Organization stands for, I am a Dawg. We are not racist but we do believe in our family. Most of us have had hard lives, and there are a lot of successful Dawgs out there. Just like every family we have problems too, SO BUT OUT!!!!! But those who walk amongst the Dead, my love loyality and respect will always be unconditional. You Already Know!

well hello for all u that dont understand what we believe in...this is not a gang so (stop)calling us a gang we are a group of men that hold a higher calling with old school ways and new school thoughts.to all my (d.a.w.g.s) my love is for all that are d.m.i...anyone who wants to say shit about us is blind and cant see what is right in front of them..u go to prison and see what will happen to u all your preaching is just preaching..its sad that people read stuff and see shit on t.v and there like oh my god what a bunch of jerks or what ever you think ..well look at it this way if you had a son in prison and he wasnt able to take care of his self maybe he would come to us for help and not to join....everyone aint made for prison so u be the one and go find out loud mouths... if u want to know more put a message up here with ur email and ill get back at u....d.t.i.d

i been in doc and i want to say that dmi is over rated they prey on the weak they rob the lame they stand in the yard once a week and youll see them raising there hands voting in public. so its immediately obvious who the new members is so how safe secret and silent is that? they are the scared white boys of doc

Hi.. my name is Michelle, I am the 1st cousin of James Sweeney the co-founder of DMI. I feel that all teh while everyone has their own oppinion, but all the sme keep your mouth shut. DMI reguardless of how.... has made Jimmy a better person in my eyes. If anyone has anyting to say say it to me. michellelamb4001@comcast.net

I myself am fresh home from the system and an ex DAWG. I dropped my flag prior to 41309 due to the fact that nothin that Is "spit" in the whisper is practiced or preached. Any violence carried out by dawgs is against dawgs. And nothing about it says man. Or loyalty love or respect. They use that against thier own members. I've been witness and carried out many a hits for DMI. all which were done on the pretense of members trusting members and most over dopebills that could not be paid. When I came home I was told to NEVER get high and instead I watched dawgs burn other dawgs over dopebills for a 50 of smack. Which on the street woulda been a gram or more. In the Penn. It amounts to nothing more than a garbage fix. Why would you preach love loyalty respect to the pups and demonstrate everything the opposite. That is c.o.d. (cause of death ). I hope when rock gets out he lines up all the fake and disloyal. Along with the dopefiends and traitors and strips all them whores. There is no loyalty there is no respect and there is damn sure no love. Nobody can be trusted. I completely agree and love the values that were instilled in me when I was brought home but those values are no longer practiced in the system or otherwise. And another thing you lame ass dawgs that were brought home in the detention centers. You are FAKE. If not brought home in the system you are not a DAWG and I'm tellin you that you will be dealt with accordingly when you are discovered. And there is one DAWG I want to address. Mr Sean R. You will be seen. And dealt with. You can no longer hide.

Looking for any way of contacting any of the inmates featured in this special as part of an Australian University study. If anyone knows how to reach them please contact me or pass on my email address to them. thanks

c_shell2@live.com.au

i am a member of D.M.I. til death all the members in the video should be in the food chain for running their mouths

DMI was Made by Perry "Rock" Roark when the BGF told him he couldn't join because of his Native American/Caucasian Ethnicity. He agreed with the beliefs of the BGF, and with their own recognition bestowed him to build his own Gang. Which was DMI. Since the numbers of DMI members on the Street are limited, to less than 25% of their total population, A younger more local gang in the Baltimore Area was started up by the son of a DMI member. Strongly believing in that of D.A.W.G. (What DMI member's call themselves, and which stands for DMI Against World Government) The young 18 Year old started up The Merciless Brotherhood, along with two of his own younger brothers. Quickly in the Baltimore City Area, The numbers of the Merciless Brotherhood continue to spread. They however are not known to represent the pyramid, or even wear colored bandanas for that matter, But keep the main goal of loyalty and respect for one another to stay strong out on the streets as their forefathers do in the prison System. That's all I know about the merciless brotherhood.

Maybe the system has changed but I do know that you have to be down for one another because being alone you can be prayed upon, so call it DMI or whatever just be 4 real.

I first and foremost am well aware of D.M.I. quite alot of it's inner working's and the current culture that is running through it. 1st of all the cat's they showed on the special were for lack of a better word punked... They of all things should of known not to run there mouth the way they did...Not to mention there were some cat's who did'nt put down to the extent they said they did...or who even represented the facts the way they should have or knew how to...My allegiance to this unit is for life...

Look as a active member of my family and unlike alot of fake people who joined my family i only have one word.
WHY? You lames have made us look bad i mean i know all the knowledge that was instilled in my brain before i was blessed what happed?You really all (lames) should have woke up and left when the gates was opened if not all i say to you is S.O.S hopefully that will wake you up. Anyways ,as far as this gangland i didnt catch nor would I wanted to. This is our family not the nations or worlds the media makes us look like monsters we are far from that we are nothing more than militint men standing for us remember what a true D.A.W.G is if not your not one I took every minute of this life as i was expected and will continue til the next place takes to me so to end the nonsense i say to all in the interview i love you all but remember the breath of life you was given and think hard about that after the interview was you livin a dead life only you can answer that all my dawgs I love all of keep ya head up and trust me true soldiers will always be next to you, lames come and go but we will rise above all I LOve you all D.T.I.D.

look all the [edited] running there mouths about d needs to shut there mouths or they wont be able to open there mouths. i know alot of people in d an running your mouths something you do not want to do.

i was in a unit with the so called elder and belive me when i say he is not who he makes himself out too be run and hide.. d.t.i.d

i come as i live dead flesh of my flesh

First of all, im black and im dating a white DMI who is very respectful, kind and curteous. Now dont get me wrong, hes not anywhere near a punk for being so sweet because if anyone disrespects me or his brothas...hes right there backing us up 100% It just gets to me that so many ppl are thinking of this gang as being so wrong...from what ive been around and ive seen, its not.
All i hafta say is i love my DMI man to the fullest and im gonna be there for him through thick and thin...for life baby!!

Thay cant do it one on one thay get there boys. So we got to do the same. We can keep whats ours and tack back whats ours.
Bad Andy the crazy white boy

I came through DOC with Ricky and he was basically the same type of person he was portrayed to be on the documentary. You can tell he had intelligence and some wits to him..he really was a laid back guy when i knew him.i don't think he wanted to be in dmi but i dont think he wanted to quit either..on the fence kinda and had to live with the decisions he made.Now lil kris"goldenchild" he was always kool with me when i knew him but i could tell he was crazy..just real wild but he had a calm demeanor..but u knew he would try to jump out there with any1 whether he would get his but kiked or not it didnt matter

Perry Roark looks sexy.woof!

Wondered if there was an address where I may write to Ricky Tolson. If so, could you please email it to me at vandeweert78@yahoo.com

i was released from the sytem about a year ago and wated to spit a little knowledge for those of you who are quick to judge but have never been in a possition were you feared for your life.i was in rockbridge, b triple c, and the hermon toulson center which use to be the boot camp. the whites in prison are outnumbered like you wouldnt believe and if your not affiliated with someone then your likely gonna end up gettin punked for your commisary, chopped up, or gettin used as a crash dummy for the 100 other gangs in there that are gonna stash there cell phones, tobbaco, shanks, and weed in your bunk. i have seen white boys go hard and go in the shower to fight a black guy one on one and 15 other blacks follow him in, chop him up in the shower and walk out.so if that was your son you would wanna know that he wouldnt end up the same.dont judge it until you have lived it.you can contact me at paulpanholzer@yahoo.com or find me on facebook.

I WAS A DAWG AT ONE TIME BUT NO LONGER ARE.I BECAME A DAWG WHEN I WENT TO PRISON IN 2005.A LONGTIME FRIEND OF MINE THAT I HAVEN'T SEEN IN A LONG TIME WAS THE COMMANDER AT THE PRISON THAT I WENT TO AND WANTED ME TO BECOME A DAWG BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT I WASN'T A PUNK AND THAT I WOULD BE A GOOD AD ON TO THE UNIT.AT THE TIME I WAS TOLD AND I THOUGHT THAT D.M.I. WAS A BROTHERHOOD AND THAT IF I JOINED I WOULD LIKE IT,BUT I WAS WRONG.AT FIRST EVERYTHING WAS GOOD AND I LIKED IT.I FINALLY THOUGHT THAT THERE WAS A WAY FOR WHITE GUYS TO HELP AND LOOK OUT FOR ONE ANOTHER WHILE IN PRISON.THAT ALL CHANGED OVER THE YEARS.EVERYONE STARTED TO TURN ON ONE ANOTHER AND LIE ABOUT ONE ANOTHER.I WAS VERY LOYAL TO D.M.I. 100% BUT THAT DIDN'T MATTER.I WAS TURNED ON BY MY OWN PEOPLE.I WAS DOING A (HIT) AS THEY CALL IT AND THE OTHER DAWG'S THAT WERE DOING IT WITH ME DIDN'T DO WHAT THEY WERE TOLD TO DO SO THEY MADE UP LIE'S ABOUT ME SO THAT NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN TO THEM FOR NOT DOING WHAT THEY WERE TOLD TO DO.SO INSTEAD OF LOOKING INTO WHAT HAD HAPPENED AND FIND OUT THE TRUTH ABOUT THE MATTER,THEY BELIEVED WHAT WAS SAID ABOUT ME AND BEAT ME BADLY.SO I AM NOLONGER PART OF D.M.I. BECAUSE OF THAT AND AM VERY GLAD THAT I AM NOT.I DONT WANT TO BE PART OF SOMETHING SO MESSED UP LIKE THAT.D.M.I ARE TURNING ON ONE ANOTHER EVERY DAY.IF YOU ARE PART OF D.M.I NOW,I WOULD GET OUT BECAUSE IF YOU DONT THEN ONE DAY YOU MIGHT NOT BE AROUND ANYMORE.

ALL THAT SAY THEY WERE PART OF THE D.M.I OK WELL IF YOU SAY YOU DIN'T LIKE THE BROTHER HOOD THEN SEND ME THE WHISPER,OR JUST DEAL WITH ALL YOU DID OR DIDN'T DO FOR THE BROTHER HOOD.I live in an area that i can only wish a broher hood like this was around

I don't wish to join a gang (I have a family to worry about and support and a job that uses a clearance) but I do support units of white people sticking up for each other. Anyone can see on the surface that we're being overrun, but even deeper than that we're just not being appreciated for our talents and abilities. In other words: society just does not respect us.

This is especially true for white males. Every time a scholarship or a college admissions slot or a job or a welfare check is given to a minority at the expense of taxpayers another white man wakes up to the BS.

If society keeps pressing white males down and making them feel guilty for ancient sins then we will respond and lash back at society. We've been shut down and ignored for too long. America is about to awaken a sleeping giant, long repressed from within.

Just wasnted to state the DMI is built on a bunch of bullshit...Men should be taking care of their families instead running the street being an idiot and killing, doing drugs and not willing to bulid their children with morals and strenght. waiting for the fall, cause we all know you won't succeed at anything if your taking each other out all the time. "rome wasn't built by one" DUH!!!!

I don't believe that we as a people should glorify any gang but it's interesting that D.M.I. seems to get so much positive feedback. I have not been in prison but I have been in County and I was forced to make alliances there that I probably never would've done otherwise. If the world in prison is even half as bad as society wants to believe, people would HAVE to have someone else willing to be there when nobody is watching!! I would think, from what I've heard, that D.M.I.
uniting our people, would be the way to go. If uniting people, instead of dividing nationalities, is at least part of their beliefs they are a step ahead of most prison gangs!!

I've known Ricky for some years n I think he just got himself in a bad place in there he was always a good guy had a dope problem but would give u the shirt off his back I hope he makes it through this shit

I have heard so many people say something along the lines of "I joined for protection" well i came home because i believed in D what it stood for and princepals and morals that are the back bone of this wonderful movement. Young men and women of many different races, all of who stood for something who understand the princepals of brotherhood and display the qualitys of love loalty respect honor sacrifice. I didnt put that work in for protection but because i saw something i knew was going to make me personaly a better man. I saw DMI as a wonderful path towards constant self improvement and holding myself to a higher standard than i did before i found my self behind the walls of the lovely MRDCC

About Peter Hermann
Peter Hermann started covering news for The Baltimore Sun in 1990, first in Anne Arundel County and, starting in 1994, reporting on the Baltimore Police Department. In 2001, he was assigned to Jerusalem as the Baltimore Sun's Middle East correspondent. He returned in 2005 as an assistant city editor overseeing crime coverage. In 2008, Peter returned to the beat as a daily reporter and blogger. A recent BBC report featured him in a segment on the harsh realities of covering crime in Baltimore.

Coverage will focus on crime trends, problems in neighborhoods in the city and elsewhere, profiles of victims and police officers and try to offer readers a fresh perspective on one of the most vexing issues facing Baltimore and its future.



Contributing to this blog is Justin Fenton, who joined The Sun in 2005 and has covered the Baltimore City Police Department and the criminal justice system since 2008. His work includes an investigation into Cal Ripken Jr.’s minor league baseball stadium deal with his hometown of Aberdeen, a three-part series chronicling a ruthless con woman, coverage of the killing of five Amish children at a schoolhouse in Nickel Mines, Pa., and a job swap with a British crime reporter to explore differences in crime-fighting. A special report looking into how city police handle rape cases led to sweeping reforms that changed the way sexual assaults are investigated in Baltimore. He was recognized as the best reporter in Baltimore by the City Paper in 2010 and by Baltimore Magazine in 2011.
