Police once again raid the wrong house and kill a pet dog.

What is it with these damn cops and their eagerness to kill dogs? There is simply no justification for this. First, the dog is someone else’s property. They have no right to destroy it, even if they do have a warrant. Second, there are many better and more humane ways to pacify a dog than killing it. With all their training, paid for by tax dollars, you’d think someone might tell them this.

    I remember my “ex” telling me about when she lived in some semi-rural area (I forget whether it was Wyoming or Washington State), and the deputy county sheriff who lived next door shot her cat. Just because he was mean and hated cats, I guess, and he saw it on his property. Amazingly, the cat lived (the bullet just hit “meat,” as the vet put it). Even more amazingly, my former ladyfriend submitted the cat’s medical bills to the county, just on a whim, thinking nothing would come of it — and the county paid them without any questions!
