GUN HAPPY PG COUNTY COPS SHOOT THE DOGS

(AP) Police raid Md. mayor’s home and kill his dogs

It’s so rare when your local news makes the national headlines. But, you can always depend on the Prince George’s County cops! PG County, Maryland usually makes the papers every six months or so for the use of excessive force by County Police. It seems they’ve never heard of the concept “innocent until proven guilty” over there. A perp is a perp–we wouldn’t be going to arrest them if they weren’t guilty. Well, it seems there were these two guys with a marijuana smuggling op. One was a FedEx driver. He’d leave the package addressed to someone picked at random, who wouldn’t be home, and his partner would come by and scoop up the delivery. Well, the other day, they left a package at the house of the mayor of Berwyn Heights MD, Cheye Calvo, addressed to his wife. He picked it up on his way home and brought it inside. Well, it seems the cops were onto the two smugglers — sort of — and the next thing you know, they busted down the doors, handcuffed the mayor in his underwear, and “frightened by his vicious Labrador Retrievers,” shot them dead. VICIOUS LABS? Labs are known for licking the hands of burglars! Well, the whole thing is being investigated for civil rights violations–the mayor and his wife are HiSPANic–but the County, true to form, has defended the actions of its soldiers, I mean police officers, for following the rules of engagement–darn, I meant proper police procedure, and hasn’t even offered an apology for the dead dogs. They did allow that the Calvos may have been innocent victims, but they had not ruled out involvement…
And they wonder WHY we don’t all think Ivins was guilty of the anthrax letters?
