I’m a law-and-order guy all the way, but this story has my blood on the boil:

When the shooting stopped, two dogs lay dead. A mayor sat in his boxers, hands bound behind his back. His handcuffed mother-in-law was sprawled on the kitchen floor, lying beside the body of one of the family pets that police had killed before her eyes.

After the raid, Prince George’s County police officials who burst into the home of Berwyn Heights’ mayor last week seized the same unopened package of marijuana that an undercover officer had delivered an hour earlier.

What police left behind was a house stained with blood and a trail of questions about their conduct. No other evidence of illegal activity was found, and no one was arrested at Mayor Cheye Calvo’s home in this small bedroom community near College Park.

The sheriff’s SWAT team delivers a box of pot to an unsuspecting family and then kicks the door down, killing the family hounds in front of a terrorized mother-in-law. And then they cuff the mayor!

This kind of thing could really get out of hand. The SWAT team were wearing street clothes and masks, and if this had happened at my house we could have had us a good old fashioned Roman holiday.

What goat rope.
