"Late last month, Berwyn Heights, Maryland Mayor Cheye Calvo took the unusual step of filing a civil rights lawsuit against the police department of his own county. The suit stems from a 2008 SWAT team raid
on Calvo's house that resulted in the shooting deaths of his two black
. In pushing back against the abuse he suffered at
the hands of the Prince George's County police department, the mayor is helping expose a more widespread pattern of law enforcement carelessness
and callousness throughout the state of Maryland."
