Female prison officer allegedly caught smuggling ganja inside New Amsterdam jail

A female prison officer, who was allegedly caught smuggling marijuana inside the New Amsterdam Prison, is expected to be charged with being in possession of narcotics for the purpose of trafficking.

With the likelihood of her being charged and possibly convicted, she stands to lose 14 years of service to that penal institution

Investigators were told that at about 11:30 Sunday morning, the 35-year old woman was arrested by her colleagues for allegedly smuggling in 298 grammes of marijuana into the prison.

After the prison officer allegedly collected a package from someone in a car, she took into the penitentiary and placed it in the area where inmates would usually collect items.

Her efforts were short-lived because another prison officer saw when a prisoner uplifted the package and intervened.

A scuffle ensued over the package and other prison officers intervened following which an examination revealed that the package contained marijuana.

The prison officer has since been handed over to police who are expected to institute charges.

    Allegedly caught ? Or allegedly smuggling?

    When things go wrong, people blame the government but as we can see illustrated by this case it is the familiar member of society – the neighbor, the passerby, the respectable officer – who, through greed or for whatever reason, commits the crime. Governments do not bring criminals from the moon. It is “we the people”. That is why our constitution says we are all jointly responsible ….
    Are those in our judicial system ready to set an example or are they going to prove the ACoP right when, speaking about them (according to today’s DW article) he said “… the court makes a mockery of how responsible people in authority should behave in these matters,” ….

      GT…was that his (AcoP) responsibility or position or pay grade to make that statement in public?

        Only he can tell. Some time or the other one has to speak one’s truth. Trying to be politically correct is the same as toeing the line and trying to please others, telling them what they want to hear and doing what they want to be done, don’t you think? Hiding behind political correctness at times leads a person astray, not allowing them to do what they feel or know is right. At times one has to bravely say it as it is and/or do what one has to do.
        Now, doing what he has done could not have been done under the previous government. Contrary to your beliefs, if I may judge from your comments here, there is a lot more freedom and democracy being practiced in the institutions today. So far, leaders can act without fear of being sidelined or otherwise punished.

          I don’t have an issue with the points you made…Organizational behavior dictates otherwise, however….and GT..you coming across as a PNC lackey does not offend me!!!..

          • Gtloyal

            There are different philosophies of organizational behavior and leaders may adopt different tactics, so I would avoid saying that it “dictates” anything specific.
            Now, your attempt at an insult by addressing me as a PNC lackey obviously does not offend me for such is always expected from an ally of the infamous PPP cabal. You must, however, acquiesce to the fact that my comments are usually in support of the government, which is not only the PNC but a coalition of various parties.

          • Col123

            Thin skinned GT?…why is it an insult to be referenced as a dedicated PNC servant?…and if a cabal is secretive, then you must be omniscient in associating me with the PPP. The issue with the ACoP is that he is a chihuahua in the scheme of Professionals we have in the Justices and elected government officials…that is a big difference organizationally!

          • Gtloyal

            Omniscient? Pot calling the kettle black? Check your psst blogs and see the number of times you … forget it. The ACoP is doing what he considers right. Since when have you been away from GT? You seem to be far from its reality.

    She is the only one who got caught..

  • Gtloyal

    I am usually a bit dense, pal, so I’m not sure l fully understand your comment.
    Anyway, your Jaggy – if it is who I think it is – is one greedy, depraved miscreant. One bad hombre whose past and present behavior and enrichment of dubious legality, whether he knows it or not, emboldens criminals.
