Mayor's house raided after UPS man delivers weed; two labradors killed

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by black dude with pompano, Aug 3, 2008.

  1. Police are investigating whether a package of marijuana addressed to the wife of a Prince George's County mayor was really intended to be intercepted by a deliveryman as part of a drug smuggling scheme.

    A Prince George's Sheriff's Office SWAT team and county police narcotics officers burst into the house of Berwyn Heights Mayor Cheye Calvo on Tuesday evening after they saw Calvo take the package inside. In the course of the raid, they shot and killed his two black Labrador retrievers.

    Sad story, but a necessary evil in the fight to keep our children safe from drugs. In any war, there will be collateral damage. Please say a prayer for the brave men in blue who risk their lives every day to protect our freedom.

    I saw this story several days ago and I'm really, really pissed about the dogs. One of them was running AWAY and was SHOT FROM BEHIND. I have three Labs - man.

    If it were, thread title would be:
    Mayor's house raided after UPS man (who is a Kwame relative making $350K per year) delivers weed; two labradors killed

    OR

    Mayor's house raided after UPS man delivers weed and sends Kwame 10 x-rated text messages; two labradors killed

    This was the first thing I thought about, too. I have a Lab. I have never met an aggressive Lab. This is a very strange story.

    And the cops admit the mayor and family are "most likely" innocent of any wrongdoing. But the cops still haven't apologized for Vicking the dogs ...

    Here's the beauty of America -- I can say this:

    The Prince George County police are a bunch of fucking douchebags.
