Mayor Cheye Calvo dogs were legitimate targets

Police were justified when they shot and killed two dogs during a July drug raid at the home of Mayor Cheye Calvo according to an internal review by the police.

“They had a legitimate court order to be there,” he said. “Unfortunately we had to engage the animals, but that engagement was justified.”

…a scientific examination of the carcasses of the two dogs (was) conducted by a veterinarian with the Maryland Department of Agriculture at the request of Mayor Cheye Calvo. The necropsy concluded one dog was shot four times and the other twice, including once in the dog’s back legs.

Mayor Calvo isn’t buying it. Not only was he not interviewed for his witness statements of the shooting but he feels the dogs were not threatening, as proved by the fact the dog was shot in the back.
