This video shows a search warrant served by the Columbia Mo. police department. The cops bust in this guys house in the middle of the night and shoot his two dogs (one a pit bull that was caged in the kitchen and the other a Corgi) with children in the home. it turns out that rather than a big time drug dealer, this guy had a small pipe with some resin in it, a grinder, and what the cops here call “a small amount of marijuana” (meaning less than a few grams).
Normally I think it’s hilarious when memes become a reality, but not in this case. People on the internet are always spouting off “hide your dog” when someone talks about something even slightly questionable. There have been instances in the past where dogs actually have been shot. I have not seen videos, so I can not say whether the dog was a threat or not and the same goes for this case. You don’t actually see the dogs being shot. If the pit bull was shot INSIDE of its cage (as the video description suggests), it was obviously not a threat. The shit is really going to hit the fan on this one.
What an outrageous abuse of power. Poor guy… nothing can bring back his dogs :(
In police departments, is there usually someone filming when a warrant is served? Helmet cams I could see, but to send a guy in just as the camera man seems like a big risk if you are unsure what you are going to encounter.
