Stay away from Prince George's County, MD

(Posted 28 Aug 2008)

More examples of how our law enforcement officials make the county look bad.

Stay away from Prince George's County, MD.

Just out of curiosity, I googled vicious police dogs, or something like that, to see what might pop up. I found this interesting.

When Police Dogs Grow Too Vicious
Allegations of a K-9 Unit Run Amok

The story tells of a K-9 unit in Prince George's County, Maryland, that is "the most dangerous canine unit in the country. The department has been the target of federal civil rights investigations, with the FBI initiating 33 criminal investigations since 1999."

It occurred to me that I had recently read something else about dogs and Prince George's County in the news . . . oh yeah, that's right -- Prince George's County officers are the ones who planted a package of marijuana in a Mayor's home, then burst in, shot his two Labrador Retrievers (one as it ran away from them), bound the Mayor and his mother-in-law up on the floor for nearly two hours, tore apart the house searching for evidence and tracking the dogs' blood throughout in the process, then left without arresting anyone and have never pressed charges or even apologized for their dispicable behavior.


I don't travel to Maryland much, but you can bet Momma's jewels I won't go through Prince George's County at all, especially with my dog. Evidently they have some real issues there.

Rocky Mountain News (Denver), 28 Aug 2008 (AP).
UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — More than twice as many people have been shot and killed this year by Prince George's County police than all of last year. The number is also more than any year since before 2004, when charges of excessive force led U.S. authorities to monitor the department. County police have killed seven people this year, compared to three in 2007. There have been two fatal shootings this year by police in Washington.
