In the four years that I've been blogging, I don't think I ever did a "read the whole thing" post with just a link. There's always a first. Be sure to read this article; a follow up on this summer's report about a botched SWAT raid. SWAT invaded a Maryland mayor's house, shot their dogs, and terrorized the mayor and his mother-in-law. There is no other description for what happened in that house on that sunny day.
Especially infuriating is this comment from a police chief, "...our people did not know that this was the home of the mayor and his family until after the fact." That is almost an admission that they would've treated a mayor differently than you and me if they had only known.
These raids must stop.
