Now in concert with the gentle approach of summer Police across the country renew their annual campaign against dogs and other pets.
Knowledgeable readers are familiar with the drill: when they came for the dogs I said nothing for I owned no dogs.
When they came for the cats I said nothing for I owned no cats.
When they came for me, there was no dog or cat owner left to speak on my behalf.
And then, of course, there is the matter of Marksmanship.
In Washington, DC it took seven or eight shots to kill a 13 year old 40 lb dog and in Missouri it took two shots about a minute apart to kill a restrained 60 lb dog at a distance of five feet.
But wait, there is MORE! A North Carolina STATE TROOPER trapped a KITTEN and THEN SHOT IT! Now he wants his job BACK after HE GOT FIRED!
First to Washington DC Station WJLA- where Grandma is mad as hell and the Police are unrepentant:
Then on to LaGrange, Missouri where the next door neighbor is stunned and yes, the Police are unrepentant.
Residents upset over Youtube video showing police officer killing dog
By RODNEY HART
Herald-Whig Staff Writer
LAGRANGE, Mo. — A video showing LaGrange police officers shooting a dog is creating an Internet sensation and drawing the ire of some city residents……….
The dog is put on the pole and guided to the side of the road. One of the officers then draws his gun and shoots the dog, dropping it to the ground.
The dog drops on all fours for a few seconds, then falls over on its side and begins to wag its tail. After about 30 seconds, the officer shoots the dog in the head area, then places a white blanket over the dog’s body.
Now that the dog is gone, both Mays and Coleman are left wondering if killing the dog was the right thing to do.
“I felt really bad, I really did. I was like I didn’t want them to kill it, I just wanted to get it away from here,” Coleman said.
And finally we reach North Carolina where the Cops are Cops and the Kittens are splattered. Really.
And former Trooper Shawn C. Houston is unrepentant

Trooper kills a kitten and loses his job
A state trooper who wanted to stop animals from climbing on his vehicles trapped his neighbor’s 5-month-old kitten and shot it to death.
Former Trooper Shawn C. Houston was charged in October with cruelty to animals and injury to real property, both misdemeanors, according to court records. The Highway Patrol dismissed him in January.
