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!

The Sheriff's office got a butt-fucking? Like hell. All the Sheriff's department got was a scolding, one helluva scolding to be sure, but nobody lost their job, nobody went to jail, and when the Sheriff's office loses the lawsuit? Not one penny is going to come out of the pockets of the ratbastards who did this evil shit. Not one penny. It's all gonna come out of the pockets of the taxpayers of Prince Georges County instead.

Which probably is right, since they're the same stupid-ass monkeys who keep electing the same abusive sheriff to office year after year because he's "tough on crime". Crap, I would bet that Calvo and his wife both voted for this dude in the last election 'cause he kept their lily-white suburb clear of drug addicts and streetcorner whores. Tight-ass whities like this only get upset when it happens to them, they don't give a flying fuck when it happens to others. Indeed, they pull out the popcorn and yank down their pants and start strokin', cause it, like, makes them horny as all hell...

And that is what is known as the truth.

I remember hearing about this at the time, it makes me sick to my stomach to even think about it. Those poor dogs. What a disgrace.
