Missed this when it came out a few weeks ago, but here’s a Baltimore news station’s report on the botched drug raid on Berwyn Heights Mayor Cheye Calvo that quotes your humble Agitator.
Couple of interesting items in the article. First, I think I may have overlooked it at the time, but the quote from outgoing Prince Geroge’s County Police Chief Melvin High is really astounding. He says, “Our investigators went in and showed both restraint and compassion.”
Jesus. They slaughtered Calvo’s dogs, stormed his house like they were in Fallujah, and bound he and his mother-in-law at gunpoint for more than two hours. And they were innocent. Makes you wonder what excessive force must look like.
The other item of note in the article is that the Prince George’s County police did the same thing a year ago. They raided the wrong house, shot and killed the family dog, and were completely unrepentant and unapologetic to the innocent couple they terrorized.
That’s two incidents from the same department within a year. That we know of.
