MS-13 Wreaks Havoc at Maryland School

MS-13 gang members have created chaos at a Maryland Middle School a mere 10 miles from the White House.

A stunning expose in the Washington Post details that a handful of gang members at Wirt Middle School in the suburb of Riverdale have openly threatened students, teachers, sold drugs, and are initiating fights. Meanwhile, cowardly school administrators and negligent police officers seem content to ignore the root of the problem. (Hot Air)
 Gang-related fights are now a near-daily occurrence at Wirt, where a small group of suspected MS-13 members at the overwhelmingly Hispanic school throw gang signs, sell drugs, draw gang graffiti and aggressively recruit students recently arrived from Central America, according to more than two dozen teachers, parents and students. Most of those interviewed asked not to be identified for fear of losing their jobs or being targeted by MS-13.

Although administrators deny Wirt has a gang problem, the situation inside the aging, overcrowded building has left some teachers so afraid that they refuse to be alone with their students. Many said they had repeatedly reported incidents involving suspected gang members to administrators, only to be ignored — claims supported by documents obtained by The Washington Post.

“Teachers feel threatened but aren’t backed up. Students feel threatened but aren’t protected,” one educator said. “The school is a ticking time bomb.”…

One educator was stunned when, at the beginning of the school year, a handful of students continually shouted obscenities and threw objects around the classroom. The educator soon noticed the same students scrawling “MS-13” on papers, desks and their skin. They bullied Spanish-speaking classmates and sexually harassed the girls in class. Several students openly counted cash, allegedly money earned from selling marijuana in Wirt’s bathrooms, transactions that a student and several parents also described to The Post.

Administrators have so far brushed aside all complaints, including one from a 14-year-old girl who claimed gang members raped her. The girl reported the incident to the police, but without support from her school, the girl recanted, apparently terrified that the gang would retaliate. Despite changing her mind, she later claimed a fellow classmate threatened her with a gun.
