Officer Accused of Shooting and Killing Dog Must be Punished

Target: Lieutenant Bob Kroll, President of the Minneapolis Police Federation

Goal: Investigate and punish officers who reportedly shot and killed a dog, if guilty of overreacting.

Police officers reportedly shot and killed a dog while entering a home to arrest two women on the “suspicion of drug possession.” The officers claim that the dog charged at them. They contained another dog and turned him over to animal control, after they say the dog ran and jumped into their vehicle. It seems the officers’ stories aren’t adding up. Some people have speculated that they shot the dog for no reason. Others have brought up questions surrounding the story of the dog that allegedly jumped into the police car. “Why would the officers arrive at a home to search the place and leave their car doors open?” asked one person.

It’s not uncommon for police to shoot and kill pets during a search, even when the animal was no threat to them. There’s a big chance that this dog, who was in his own home, died a senseless, unnecessary death. According to the spokesman for the St. Paul police department, their internal affairs unit reviews any instance of an officer shooting an animal, and determinations are made about whether it was justifiable. This should be determined by an unbiased third party. Please sign the petition below to demand that the officers be harshly punished if guilty of unnecessarily shooting this poor dog.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Lieutenant Kroll,

A dog was reportedly shot and killed by police officers who entered a home to arrest the residents on “suspicion of drug possession.” The officers claim that the dog charged them, but there are no body cameras to prove that.

It’s possible that this poor dog did not have to die such a senseless death. We, the undersigned, demand that a third-party, unbiased investigation be conducted, and the officers be punished if guilty of unnecessarily killing the dog.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    PUT THE SCUMBAGS IN JAIL FOR LIFE..SOLITARY CONFINEMENT!!INVESTIGATE POLICE DEPARTMENT THAT HIRES THESE MONSTERS AND REVAMP THE WHOLE POLICE DEPT WHICH IS VERY QUESTIONABLE !!

    • Wow, Judge Jacqui has spoken!! No dog deserves to die protecting it’s family, but you don’t have all the facts, and you don’t personally know the officers involved, so how about trying to help fix the problem, instead of just spewing revenge!!

    If all these damn dog-shooting cops are so easily frightened, they are in the wrong career! Why don’t they become meter maids instead??

    I agree cops should NOT investigate themselves.
