Last night, the Maryland Senate unanimously cleared a bill for Governor O'Malley's signature that would allow the state to oversee local deployment of SWAT teams.
Calvo released a statement that said:
"Although the botched raid of my home and killing of our dogs, Payton and Chase, have received considerable attention in the media, it is important to underscore that this bill is about much more than an isolated, high-profile mistake. It is a about a growing and troubling trend where law enforcement agencies are using SWAT teams to perform ordinary police work."
