What is this handbasket we’re in, and where is it going?

Another casualty of the War on Drugs

Maryland police raided the home of the Berwyn Heights Mayor at the end of July in order to intercept a package full of marijuana. Mayor Calvo was the victim of a new scheme for illegally importing drugs into the country where a FedEx delivery driver would deliver the box of contraband to a random house. A second accomplice would then, some time later, scoop up the packages off the unsuspecting home owner’s porch.

The officers gunned down Calvo’s two black labs after determining that they were a threat. According to Calvo’s wife, who arrived in the middle of the raid, officers shot the dogs for sport, gunning one down as it fled. The raid took a turn for the worse when Calvo’s mother-in-law noticed the officers closing in on the house and screamed, which could have given someone “time to grab a gun or destroy evidence.”

I call shenanigans on this one. If we would just legalize drugs already (hell, we could tax them), this shit wouldn’t happen anymore.
