Police Searching for Missing 3 Year Old Shoot Weimaraner Dog in Backyard- Child Later Found Sleeping
Oh my. So this is what we are paying so many taxes for, cops to shoot our family pets while ‘searching’ for non- missing children? Give me a break.
The dog’s owner wants the officers responsible fired, and for good reason. More from the article here:
Kendall told KSL said Geist had never been aggressive or lunged at anybody, so ‘the idea that he attacked an officer – it just doesn’t make sense,’ he said.
‘I believe my dog came out of the dog kennel to see what was going on, who was here, stopped right here, and those were his last moments.’
Kendall said Geist had a single gunshot wound to the head.
‘Just the sheer sight of seeing my dog there – it was traumatizing,’ Kendall said.
‘Now he’s dead. I have him wrapped up in a blanket in the back of my truck, and now I have to go bury him.’
Kendall’s attorney, Brett Boulton, said he believes his client should be compensated.
But Sgt. Greg Wilking said the officer did not break the law when he entered Kendall’s backyard.
‘There are extenuating circumstances,’ said Wilking reported The Salt Lake Tribune.
‘A child is missing, and if you’re a parent, you would want us to look everywhere for your child. We wouldn’t want to leave any stone unturned.’
OK, I totally get that you are looking for my child, and I may not even realize my own kid had crawled off somewhere and fallen asleep.ement and: I appreciate the hard working men and women of law enforcement and the tough jobs they do every day. How ever, I find the claim of ‘leaving no stone unturned’ to be more than a bit outlandish. REALLY? And you didn’t check the basement of this kids house before you checked the yard? I don’t think that the first place I would check would be where the dog was hanging out, nor the backyard. The dog had never had an issue with violence towards others. Why was it shot? How does this possibly help in a missing child case? Glad you are OK, kid, sorry we killed your dog? The power abuse by authority has to stop.
The QOTD for today actually comes to us from a NY Times editorial in 2005 which clearly states their understanding
