Agitator.com Live Chat with Mayor Cheye Calvo Next Week

Friday, February 20th, 2009

Berwyn Heights, Marlyand Mayor Cheye Calvo has kindly agreed to do a life chat with you, Agitator readers, next week.

Calvo of course was the victim of a particularly violent no-knock raid on his home by a SWAT team from Prince George’s County, Maryland. He’s now pushing for legislation in Maryland that would require police departments across the state to submit reports detailing how often they use their SWAT teams, for what purpose, and what happened before, during, and after the raid.

Log on this Thursday at 8pm to ask him your questions.

    May be a stupid question but is there some sort of software needed for this live chat? I run Linux. Is that 8pm est?

    In case I do not make it, will someone ask about cameras and microphones for all the storm troopers err.. SWAT members?

    @MacK: Last time it was a java plugin, so make sure you have java installed, and you should be good to go.

    Ooh, this should be good. Did that story receive ANY mainstream press?

    I was watching Calvo’s live chat on the Washington Post like a month ago and he was great. This should be a really good chat.

    I’ll try to be there as well. It will be interesting to hear if there were any results from the Injustice Department investigation and what his legal plans are.
