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.
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?
