State Del. Jon S. Cardin called Baltimore's police commissioner this morning and apologized for using city police officers from the marine and helicopter units to stage a fake raid during which the lawmaker proposed marriage to his girlfriend.

"He offered an apology for putting the Baltimore Police Department in this kind of predicament and spotlight," Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III told reporters after honoring a family that donated money and time to help spruce up the police academy in Pimlico.

XIX or so?

I don't think an apology is necessary. Any red blooded American male with such access would do the same thing given his situation. Hell, I'm thinking that would be a nice set of resources for when my daughter starts dating.

Presumably to scare the shit out of potential suitors rather than to get her engaged?

It does tell you if you read the story in the link. :p

He got police to board and search the boat, which they searched and discovered an engagement ring...

So, presumably she was on the boat at the time. And then all these police turned up out of nowhere, stormed on board and raided it. And then it turned out to be all a big joke and the guy proposed.

Yeah, that's romantic. :rolleyes:

Why not get them to strip search her, full body cavity style, and then say this was what they found? That'd be even more romantic...

Maybe there is some fantasy we don't know about?
