Made some changes[edit]

Sheriffs are odd creatures of common law in Maryland. They are Maryland State Constitutional officers, and gain their powers from that instrument. When you sue them, you have to name the State of Maryland as a Defendant, not the County in which they are located. Try not to confuse the Prince George's County Police Department with the Prince George's County Sheriff's Department, they are separate in every respect. I have made the changes to make this plain in the article.--Yachtsman1 (talk) 05:18, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

I tried to establish that distinction throughout the article and, for the most part, the distinction is clear. Also, I believe the term "officer" is still correct, since they are sworn law enforcement officers of the court. At any rate, I'm nominating this article for a GA (per above), so please add more thoughts if you wish. --Tom (talk - email) 21:55, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

In Popular Culture[edit]

The article states under the section "In Popular Culture" that the raid was depicted in the episode "Stranger than Fiction" on the T.V. show Urban Legends.

However, after watching this episode (available here on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08GagCSxTug) I did not see any material that is relevant to this article.

The source given is just to its IMDB page, which also does not seem to have any relevant material.
