A Sheriff's deputy serving child support papers walked onto a man's property and shot his tethered dog for allegedly charging at him. The home had a large "beware of dog" sign, but the deputy claims not to have seen it. After murdering the man's dog, he went to serve him child support papers, but it turns out he got the wrong house. The police claim the address was given to them by a court, but the man has lived in his home for five years, and he "d[oes]n't even know who that guy is."
The County Sheriff is defending his deputy's actions, and said he'd "rather have" the man's dog die than "one of [his] deputies needing several surgeries because he got attacked by the dog."
SPARTANBURG, SC -- Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright is defending a deputy who killed a tethered dog on Monday.
It's rather hard to believe the deputy failed to notice an allegedly aggressive barking dog, I would assume the dog was likely stretching his tether to the max as soon as he saw the deputy, as that's the behavior of every aggressive chained up dog I've ever seen.
Did the deputy simply shoot the dog as a matter of convenience? We'll likely never know.
What we do know is he got the wrong house, he killed a completely innocent man's dog for ultimately no reason, and he will face no punishment as a result.
Fortunately, the man is filing a lawsuit against the city. Unfortunately, rather than the police paying a settlement out of their own pocket for the damages they caused, they will simply loot taxpayers to pay the settlement, and they will also loot taxpayers to pay for their lawyers to defend them against the same taxpayers they're looting and ruling over. Alas, that's how "our" system of law-enforcement socialism "works."
