I would like to thank everybody who liked our Wordy Wednesday post. It was supposed to be Wordless but the captions felt essential.
Now, for a more pressing agenda, I would like to tell you a very frustrating story about a dog named Lillie who was shot by a Forth Worth, Texas police officer who's still currently unnamed (probably because he'd be crucified by pet owners for making the biggest, stupidest mistake ever).
First of all, this guy responds to the wrong house address. He then shoots the family dog who he claims he thought was a pit bull and was charging at him!
|This is Lillie, the so called pit bull look-alike!|
And this is what the department had to say about it.
Here's what Officer Daniel Segura with the Fort Worth Police Department had to say about the shooting:
"The officer responded as an assist unit in the investigation of a copper theft offense that occurred in the 4900 Block on Norma st. The assist officer started looking for suspects in the surrounded area from the offense location; he stopped at 4717 Norma where he made contact with an adult male, the officer waited by the driveway when suddenly two dogs started barking at the officer and in an aggressive manner charged towards his direction. The officer ran towards a pillar and asked the male repeatedly to call back the dogs. The officer jumped on top of the pillar and continued pleading the male to call the dogs back. As the dogs were getting closer to attack/bite the officer, the officer fired his duty weapon striking the dog closest to him.
No arrests were made in reference to the copper theft call."
The Fort Worth Police Department hasn't apologized for their mistake yet and that annoys me. They could have at least promised that this trigger-happy incident would never happen again.
