Making Prince George's County look bad - Sheriff Michael Jackson edition

Whatever the justification may be for the latest dog killing by the Prince George's County Sheriff's Department, and whether or not Sheriff Jackson's defense of such violence is justified ...

Has any other county office, or elected official, or candidate for office caused the county to be the subject of more bad press--regional, national, or even world-wide--and lawsuits over the past three years?

Do we want a county executive coming into office with Michael Jackson's notoriety and baggage?  Will electing Jackson improve the reputation of Prince George's County?


  1. The fact that Michael Jackson twice declined to review the findings of an audit brought to him by the union president because "that was union business" tells me that he does not have the judgment to manage our county.

  2. I will NOT be voting for this dog killer. I will urge all to do the same. We don't need someone like this in office. Laurel, Md citizen. It is truly time for a change.
