The biggest corruption trail in Baltimore is underway, the trail involve eight members of Baltimore's elite Gun Trace Task Force. Six of the eight have plead guilty to racketeering charges. The task force allegedly use fake guns during police shooting, the rule set up by the team's sergeant. Officer Maurice Ward said "in case we accidentally hit somebody or got into a shootout, so we could plant them."

Mr. Ward team was in charged of getting illegal guns off the streets, instead the task force was focused on robbing suspects, raiding homes without warrants, to selling confiscated drugs. In 2014 a 12-year-old named Tamir Rice was shot twice and died while the child played in the playground with a plastic toy gun. From 2015 through 2016 86 people fatally shot by the Baltimore police department, and were was reported to be carrying toy guns.

Even with some officers pleading guilty, 2 of the 8 officers are still working and handling police duties. With so much information on corruption done by this gun task force the police department keeps two of the officers on the clock, a good way to get more trust from the citizens of Balitomere.
