Baltimore County Detention Center Conditions Spark Protest: Report
TOWSON, MD — Conditions at the Baltimore County Detention Center sparked a small protest over the weekend, with signs at the demonstration reportedly saying things like "everyone deserves human rights."
Inmates are kept three to a cell with people sleeping on the floor; the facility has rats; and the food and showers are moldy, according to WBAL. The protest on Sunday came days after WBAL ran a story on an inmate who was assaulted and ended up at the University of Maryland R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, where his family learned he was after another detainee contacted them. A gang investigation is reportedly underway following the assault.
