PG County, not surprised. That place is so dangerous it makes the worst ghettos in neighboring D.C. look like Mayberry. The county government there is corrupt, the police force is corrupt, etc. The County Executive from 2002-2010 Jack Johnson and his wife (a PG County councilwoman) were indicted on federal charges as part of a larger political corruption scandal in the county. On May 17, 2011, Johnson pleaded guilty to extortion and witness- and evidence-tampering. Johnson can be heard on a wiretap instructing his wife Leslie to locate and flush a $100,000 check from the developer down a toilet at their home and to hide $79,600 in cash in her bra as FBI agents knocked at the door of their home with a search warrant. Even though she was arrested On November 12, 2010 she refused to leave the council and stayed on there until July 2011. In the same wiki article: "Jack Johnson's tenure as top prosecutor in Prince George's was marked by an aggressive push against police brutality in the notoriously violent Prince George's County Police Department."

PG County - where all the scum (police and politicians included) move to as DC becomes more gentrified. Stay out if you value your life.

It's PG County right near the DC border. The only thing unusual about this story is that no one got shot.

January 11?

But I seriously would like to see a tracking info for this, or when a FedEx plane crashes.

In October, I had 7-1/2 cases of wine shipped from California to Texas (was 10 boxes total). Seven went straight to Houston. Three went to Tulsa then swung back down. One of the ones in Tulsa kept going till Maine where it turned around and headed back to Texas.

I used to work at an online retailer and came across a few similar things in tracking info. Train derailments, plane crashes, lost during transport (i.e. it fell off the back of the truck). Fun times...explaining it was just fun. Suddenly little johnny getting his present late isn't such a big deal.

I'm presently waiting on a package to be delivered so I'm getting a kick out of this headline.

One of my sold items went to Des Moine (customer lives in Iowa), then rerouted to Jersey City, then went back to him in Iowa. That was a weird conversation and he ended up buying a second one from someone else because it was for a gift, but when the original showed up he kept it 'as a reminder' of the bizarre incident. Crazy things can happen with shipping.

I used to program interfaces for UPS Shipment Tracking and UPS has some weirdly specific pre-defined exception codes, like PARADE, CIVIL UNREST, NATURAL DISASTER, DERAILMENT, LABOR ACTION, WILDLIFE HOLD, and FALLOUT ("Packet Fell Out")

Sorta kinda. A few years ago PWC passed a whole raft of anti-immigrant laws. And overnight little mexico packed up and moved.

Then stay your punk ass out of the County, if you're scared. Don't forget to mention that it is the Richest African-American County in America. I guess even the rich black folks are still criminal scum. Smh.

Show me someone in the public eye that hasn't given (pardon the pun) PG County a black eye.

Yes there are many civilians that live in the county that aren't a bunch of criminal trash, and yes, they are well educated and wealthy, however, the majority of folks that "represent" PG county give it a bad name for doing exactly what Walker spoke about, they lie, cheat and steal and I'm sorry, they majority are (no filter here) Successful (albeit corrupt) African Americans. Not only that, they move from Washington D.C. to Annapolis to Baltimore, PG and round and round the Entitlement Train they go on the Political Merry Go Round.

That's why you have to stipulate which part of PG county you're talking about when you reference it. The parts that butt up against the city tend to be pretty shiatty (I worked in Hyattsville for five years - not a nice area) but the rest of the county is a very wealthy suburb of DC. It's also a farking HUGE county. The "bad parts" are a very small area near DC:

Even Hyattsville was showing signs of improvement the last time I worked there in 2008, but it was still pretty industrial.

Oddly enough, southern Avenue near the metro station has been improving because of the metro station, which opened in 2001. The apartment complex where this went down doesn't look too bad:

For most folks in the DC area, PG County is this big mysterious blob on the map marked, "Here there be Negroes."
