In a small town equipped with an Animal Control Department THE POLICE respond to a complaint about a “vicious dog” which had NOT bitten or harmed anyone but was sentenced to death because “he charged” and “showed his teeth”.
They fire a SHOTGUN TWICE in a residential neighborhood (presumably at close range) and leave the dead dog bagged by the side of the road.
The officer who pulled the trigger has been on the force for a year. Naturally, the Chief exonerates the behaviour of his officers.
Where are the 911 tapes and records for the alleged behaviour of this dog? Remember, this a small town, presumably everyone more or less knows everyone and their business.
What are the CALEA policies for this type of response?
