And this is how you ensure people hate your guts

and will probably never trust a cop again.
While there, an unidentified police officer took what Fox 25 described as a high-powered rifle from his vehicle and shot Opie, described as a bulldog/pitbull mix, multiple times, including at least twice in front of children who were having a birthday party, according to Vicki Malone, the mother. Police insist the dog came around the house to menace police, but Fox 25 reports it obtained video that showed the dog lying on the ground with a bullet wound in its head near the fence, not near the house as police insisted.
Bad, right?

But wait!  There's MORE!
The police chief also admitted to Fox 25 that they knew the Malones were the most recent residents and that a number of people had moved in and out of the house. But, said Ken Moore, police "had to start somewhere," and the warrant gave them the authority to enter the Malone property without their permission.
Well, Chief Moore, starting somewhere on this fine demonstration of idiocy  means telling you that the idiot who shot the dog, and you, are disgraces to the badge you wear.

So, on the basis of this bullshit you kill a dog in front of a bunch of kids, and then get pissy because 'We had a warrant!'

You really suck, you know that?

I think that's a bad faith warrant, and the fact of the residency changing hands which the police admitted knowing is something the judge signing the warrant would want to know, and unless he's a rubber-spined rubber stamp of a judge, he'll remember this. If I were that judge, I'm not sure I'd interrupt my calendar to review a warrant from this police chief if I were playing solitaire in my chambers.
I'm sure the police chief is working harder than he ever worked since he had to retake the test to graduate from the police academy to keep that statement out of evidence at the lawsuit for intentional destruction of property, intentional infliction of emotional distress on minors, intentional infliction of emotional distress, damages to reputation, interference with lawful activities, and all done under color of law.
If there is justice in the world, he can kiss the new police building with the spiffy police chief office goodbye until he's retired.
