The Montgomery County police conducted a raid on a home roughly a quarter of a mile in the territory of Washington, D.C. It appears that the Montgomery County police rented themselves and their vehicles to a television production company for a show called “Prison Wives” and proceeded to conduct the raid without notifying the District of Columbia.
D.C. residents were terrified when officers with guns drawn and police cars blaring raided a home in Northwest D.C.
This was all done for a cable show for Investigation Discovery on women who fall in love and marry prisoners.
I am not sure what is more disturbing: the fact that police are now rented out like cheap extras or that a raid is conducted with county cars for a cheap cable show. They are not alone in this theater of the absurd, here.
