Fake Police Raid in Ward 4
Did anyone else catch this in the Washington Examiner this morning? According to their article today,
Montgomery County police officers staged a fake raid in Northwest D.C., complete with guns drawn and police lights blazing, sparking outrage from local residents who were not warned that the cops were acting for a TV show.
About a half dozen off-duty officers, who wore county uniforms and drove county police cars, were hired by a local production company to stage a police raid on 315 Aspen St. NW, which is about a quarter of a mile from the Montgomery-D.C. border.
This is apparently for a television show called Prison Wives. It’s got everyone up in arms … and it should. That no one in the neighborhood knew this would happen is insulting. That the production company, Sirens Media, didn’t get a permit or notify the city is inexcusable.
Sure, the production company has apologised, but in my opinion, they should be both fined and banned.
