There aren’t just a few bad apples. They’re an intrinsically rotten fruit:
A DeKalb County family’s dog was shot and killed Tuesday night by a police officer who went to the wrong house when responding to a domestic incident, Channel 2 Action News reported. The officer went to Bobbie Currie’s home on Silva Court around 9 p.m. in response to a domestic dispute call with a possibly armed person.
The family’s German shepherd, which was chained in the garage, lunged at the officer, and was shot and killed, according to Channel 2. Currie’s husband, Anthony, told Channel 2 that the officer also pointed his gun at him and told him to put his hands up.
“I said, ‘Why [did] you shoot my dog?’ And he said, ‘Well, I’ll blow your brains out,’” Anthony Currie said.
A DeKalb police supervisor sent to the scene said the officer made an error.
“Subsequent investigation determined that the actual address that he was looking for was actually across the street,” DeKalb police Lt. Dane Cunningham told Channel 2.
The officer is not facing disciplinary action pending an internal investigation, Channel 2 said.
I don’t despise the police because one of them happens to be an idiot who can’t read a street address, is needlessly abusive, and is intoxicated with his government-granted license to kill. I despise them because they ALWAYS defend their evil “brethren” and refuse to hold them accountable no matter what they do. They have no honor and they refuse to be held accountable for even the most despicable actions.
At this point, I would be far more confident having to rely upon the actual Mafia than in the badge gang. It’s no longer any mystery why the annals of military history are rife with examples of the dreadful behavior and cowardly performance of police units.
Even street criminals usually don’t shoot dogs. Especially not dogs that are tied up and can’t possibly hurt them.
