Either we have some of the dumbest cops in Atlanta or we have some morons working at the 911 command center. There is no other way to explain why an Atlanta police officer, responding to a domestic disturbance call, kills a chained dog. To make matters worse, he went to the wrong house.
The officer went to Bobbie Currie’s home on Silva Court around 9 p.m. in response to a domestic dispute call with a possibly armed person.
The family’s German shepherd, which was chained in the garage, lunged at the officer, and was shot and killed, according to Channel 2.
Currie’s husband, Anthony, told Channel 2 that the officer also pointed his gun at him and told him to put his hands up.
“I said, ‘Why [did] you shoot my dog?’ And he said, ‘Well, I’ll blow your brains out,’” Anthony Currie said. Source: AJC
It’s a sad commentary that the officer is not facing any disciplinary action. So, I guess an officer can just go to the wrong home and kill someone’s pet just because he felt threatened. The Atlanta Police Department should release the name of the officer who killed a chained dog. Please, tell us the name of this idiot.
