This is what happened in the town that I live in yesterday. Prince George's County police, in collaboration with the SWAT team, raided the mayor of my town's house and killed his two black laborador retrievers. One of them was running away. This raid was initiated by a thirty-two pound package being left on the mayor Chey Calvo's doorstep.

Police Raid Berwyn Heights Mayor's Home, Kill His 2 Dogs

There are a whole lot of articles pertaining to this. Do you all think he's lying, or telling the truth?

wow another reason to not give what you find to the police

and why the hell did they shoot Labradors? I can't imagine them attacking that swat team.

Really sad stuff.

This world has gone insane! It is so ridiculous that with him being a public official, any other public official, or even a single cop could have knocked on his door to come in, gaining entry without a SWAT team.

I highly doubt the family (anyone of them) had a clue what was in the package. It was either a direct attempt to frame them or a very common practice of transporting drugs via even the mail, to homes that would not be suspected of suspicion and usually empty during the day. The actual recipients then easily retrieve the package before the people get home and they frequently never even know a package came and vanished. Obviously, if this was going on the heavy presence of black SUV's in the neighborhood would have scared off the peorson or persons that was actually supossed to retrieve the package.

If you've never heard of this before it's because it normally goes unnoticed and is usually done in small Towns. I lived in a small town myself once where this was going on. Someone came home early one day, found the package and called the cops. It later was determined to have not been an isolated incident.

SWAT teams killing Labradors???? Freaking gosh - with all their gear how seriously could a dog have hurt them? The one shot running away is just inexcusable.

Keep us posted what happens in this case o22a6ar. What's the local gossip? Does anyone even believe the Mayor's family had any connection to this delivery?

There was a rally today in support of the mayor.

It's time to legalize pot and stop waisting taxpayers money chasing it around.
The police officers who shot the dogs should have all their family pets executed in the same way.

CNN also covered the news about this recently. That is a very wrong and sad excuse to do this to him. He didn't deserve this treatment nor does anyone who is not at fault deserve it.

How would the swat team members feel if someone took a team of people, entered their family's homes and started to shoot up the place?

I hope the Mayor continues pressing for more information and eventually has someone fired (or groups fired).

The arrogance of Prince George's County Police is clear when the chief is said to refuse to apologize for killing the dogs--even after he states "Calvo and his family were "most likely ... innocent victims,". Heartless bastard.

I just heard about this recently.. How has this stayed so quiet. It was a bit hard to find on the net also. As a person owned by a Lab, I can assure you that they are not "killer/attacker types".. Not to mention a necropsy could prove the police shot the 2nd dog from behind which kind of negates the (I) 'felt threatened' excuse! If someone out there has contacts & can spread this story more effectly, I for one would be appreciative. I dont know if the family is keeping up with this, but my hear grieves for your loss, stay strong.

Here's another thread from yesterday.

Another reason to hate fried bread eaters.

I wonder why the mayor was chosen as the package recipient? Another casualty of the failed war on drugs, or a little revenge scheme turning them against each other?

And there it is.

Authorities say the package was part of a scheme in which drugs are mailed to unknowing recipients and then intercepted.

I'm still scratching my head over this, as it was so obvious to me not even knowing this guy, that this was a huge possibility. Didn't the authorities know about this type of scheme? I first heard about it 10 years ago.

There has to be more to the agression of this case. I have never heard of a case of a raid like this over one stinking box anywhere. Normally an investigation would go on if a single incident raised eyebrows to ge more than the delivery of one box. Sheez in my City, you can report drug activity at a house, take pictures of what is going on, give them tag numbers of people coming and going and it still takes them up to a year to act because they "need" to do surveillance and investigations to catch the "next guy up the chain".

I really feel bad for this guy and his family and I hope someone has to answer for it. It also scares the ehy out of me because it has to make you wonder if this weren't a public figure, would we even be hearing about it. This could have been anyone, due to the nature of this type of scheme.
