  • POS With Badge Shoots Two Dogs That Were No Threat Just Because He Can

    Police departments and judges nationwide have given a green light for cops to kill people's dogs at the drop of a hat - and the cowardly Thugs With Badges are doing it as if its a contest between departments to see which one can rack up the biggest canine body count.

    Animal cruelty is a felony in all 50 U.S. states (
    http://aldf.org/blog/50-states-now-h...ty-provisions/ ) and the FBI now regards animal cruelty as a class A felony ( https://news.vice.com/article/the-fb...class-a-felony ) - unless you wear a badge, that is. Then animal cruelty is apparently considered one of the privileges of the job.

    There are many good police officers in America - I get that. Regarding the cowards with badges who live and act like thugs - any dog walking the earth is worth more than a thousand of these dickless cowards. Since the courts refuse to hold these scumsuckers accountable, it's may well be just a matter of time before someone does hold them accountable by applying some "do it yourself justice." The law of unintended consequences never sleeps.

    This "The Police don't have to obey the laws they are paid to enforce" mentality that is prevalent in America has got to be brought to a screeching halt or else America is going to be no different from Panama when Manuel Noriega was running the show down there.

    Homeowner slams cop for shooting tail-wagging dog



    By Joshua Rhett Miller
    July 10, 2017


    A Minneapolis homeowner demanded to know why a cop responding to a burglary call shot her two dogs at point-blank range — after one approached wagging his tail.


    Surveillance video shows the unidentified officer with the Minneapolis Police Department walking backwards in a back yard with his gun drawn when a Staffordshire terrier — named Ciroc — walks toward him wagging his tail Saturday night. The cop suddenly fires his pistol, hitting the dog in the jaw before the animal runs off.


    “He was wagging his tail,” the dogs’ owner, Jennifer LeMay, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “My dog wasn'’t even moving, lunging toward him or anything.”


    Just as Ciroc is shot, a second Staffordshire terrier named Rocko darts into the frame, prompting the cop to fire again, striking the dog in the side, face and shoulder before the officer calmly hops a 7-foot wooden fence out of the yard.


    The dogs survived, but LeMay says the family is suddenly overwhelmed by the vet bills after the shooting. Ciroc is back home after a $900 vet bill, but still needs up to $7,000 in surgeries at the University of Minnesota. Rocko, meanwhile, returned home late Sunday. Both dogs are emotional support animals prescribed by a doctor for LeMay’s sons, who have severe anxiety, she said.
    “My dogs were doing their job on my property,” she told the Star Tribune. “We have a right to be safe in our yard.”


    Corey Schmidt, a police spokesman, declined to identify the officer seen in the video, but told The Post more information would be released later Monday. He told the Star Tribune on Sunday that the incident was under investigation.


    “We are aware of the recent incident involving MPD officers responding to an audible residential burglary alarm and while at this call an MPD officer discharged their firearm, striking two dogs belonging to the homeowner,” Schmidt said in a statement. “Anytime an officer discharges their firearm in the line of duty there is an investigation. We are in the process of reviewing the video posted online, as well as the officer’s body camera video.”


    LeMay said she was camping with relatives in Wisconsin on Saturday while a friend watched the dogs at her home. One of LeMay’s daughters, however, came home earlier than expected and accidentally triggered the home’s alarm system. Two officers responded to the home about 20 minutes after LeMay called the security company to deactivate the alarm, she said.


    Another officer stopped by LeMay’s home late Sunday to apologize for the incident and was “as genuine and compassionate as he could be, without overstepping his boundaries,” she said.


    A GoFundMe page created to help offset medical bills for the dogs had exceeded $16,000 as of Monday.
