Just think how successful I could be if I shot some dogs

Since the day his officers gunned down two pet Labrador dogs and handcuffed two innocent people for hours in a drug raid in 2008 at the home of the mayor of Berwyn Heights, Prince George’s County Sheriff Michael Jackson has clung to what seems like a preposterous notion that his men did nothing wrong.

Of course, that insistence is accompanied by constant stonewalling — blocking Mayor Cheye Calvo’s every attempt to get even basic information from the county.

And this is just one of many instances. So what kind of fallout is the Sheriff facing?

Jackson confirmed to political associates last week that he’s running for county executive.

Don’t be surprised, though, if Jackson suffers only modest political damage from the dog-shooting incident. In a crowded Democratic primary in September, he’ll be targeting voters who welcome a tough law-and-order candidate.

Note that discovery on the Calvo case could be blocked by Jackson until after the election. Convenient.

    The obvious infererce here is Discovery is being blocked due to some damaging evidence being present. Reform people in the area should band with Mayor Calvo to disrupt any political run this jackass tries to make. Jackson’s not a lawman. He’s a con man!

  • We used to have an ‘ole Sheriff here in our little village.

    He kept shooting peeps’ dogs and they named THE DEAD DOG SALOON after him.

    RIP Keith Brown.
