The Police State
Cheye Calvo and Trinity Tomsic
Update. Cheye Calvo, mayor of Berwyn Heights, writes a piece in the WahPoo (Washington Post, in case you hadn't guessed) about the ordeal he suffered at the hands of the police of Prince George's County, as we blogged before.
We're glad to see that Mayor Calvo and his wife, Trinity Tomsic, have filed suit against these apparatchiks of the fascist state. These are the people the ReapUglyCans want us to submit to. They're pro-police, pro-authority, pro-the strong, long arm of governmental control — at least until it comes to them. They, themselves, are, of course, beyond the reach of the law. Or think they should be. Schmucks.
In case you were comatose at the time and failed to see anything about the case, the Prince George's County sheriff's office, in the course of a War on Drugs police sting, delivered a package of marijuana (the noble weed, for crisake! Aren't there shitloads of meth freaks they should be concentrating on? Fuckwits.) to the Tomsic-Calvo household, then used that incident for a "no-knock" breaking down of the Tomsic-Calvo home's front door, and held the inhabitants at gunpoint (including Tomsic's elderly mother) for several hours.
Oh, and they shot the couple's two friendly black Labs, one just a puppy. Shot them dead and left them lying in pools of their own blood while they held Mayor Calvo and his mother-in-law at gunpoint.
The poor little pupsters
They did all this without bothering to coordinate with the Berwyn Heights police. What a bunch of fucking eejits. Naturally, when it came out that a middle- to upper-middle class WHITE family had been held at gunpoint and had their pets murdered before their eyes, the outrage over the incident went international, and the Sheriff's office got the butt-fucking it deserved.
Of course, they do this every day in this country to people of colour. Even college professors.
At least Calvo and Tomsic will get their day in court. Hopefully, they'll succeed in bringing about the death of this "no-knock warrant" shit, as blatant a violation of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution as ever there was. Does anyone think the Founding Fathers would have approved of this? Stumble It!
