geez, this woman's dog is shot by cops in her own yard while doing nothing wrong because it barked at INTRUDERS??? It couldn't have been too dangerous if the 'drug suspect' ran through without incident. And what about not destroying other people's property in pursuit of a NON VIOLENT criminal? What if the bullets had gone awry? Endangering innocent citizens and their property for non violent crime is the mark of out of control macho cops who love taking every chance to shoot their guns. This is police state type bs!
Officers Shoot Dog While Chasing Drug Suspect; Owner Angry
SLIDESHOW: Dog Shot By Atlanta Police Officers
In a written statement, Atlanta police told Channel 2 the pit bull attacked the officer and he fired his weapon after fearing for his safety.
"She may have been barking, but she's never bitten anyone. She's a very friendly dog, so he was clearly just afraid of dogs because the suspect went through the yard and jumped over and didn't have any problem," said Dummetts.
Dummetts said she begged the officers to help her get her dog to an animal hospital or give her a police escort and they refused.
She said no one from the department has offered apologies or help for her vet bills.
