Around 9 p.m., a DeKalb officer went to her home on Silva Court in response to a domestic dispute call with a possibly armed person. The officer said the family’s German shepherd lunged at him, so he killed the dog. The recently rescued animal was chained in the garage when the shooting happened.
Currie’s husband, Anthony, said the officer also pointed his gun at him and told him to put his hands up.
“I said, ‘Why [did] you shoot my dog?’ And he said, ‘Well, I'll blow your brains out.’ I said, ‘Hold on a minute, you just killed my dog. Why you want to blow my brains out? My hands are up.’ I said, ‘I don't have no gun,’” Anthony Currie said.
A: idiot with badge had gone to the WRONG ADDRESS.
B: THE DOG WAS CHAINED IN THE GARAGE.
C: The first officer faces no disciplinary action, but he will have to go before the shooting review board and face an internal investigation.
Go to the wrong place, shoot a chained dog and threaten to kill the owner, no disciplinary action. Tells you what DeKalb police think of the commoners.
