BruiserPosted: June 19, 2011
This is a particular abhorrent example because not only did no crime take place, but the cops weren’t even under the impression that a crime had taken place. In fact, an officer had just gotten out of his car to ask for directions when Bruiser (pictured above), came running out to meet thim.
Standing a foot away from his cop car, the officer drew his pistol and shot Bruiser.
He had a ride-along with him that was actually his brother-in-law. I think he was showing off. And I think that he thought he was going to get away with it and nobody would know who shot the dog.
She also says that initially the police claimed that the dog was trying to attack him, but that when she said she’d recorded the events they changed their story, offered her money, and told her to keep quiet. The Grady County Sheriff’s Office refused to comment.
