Police Chief Kills Family's Dog Laying On Porch, Enters Family's Backyard & Kills Their Other Dog For Good Measure (InformationLiberation) There is an old saying, "no one's liberties are safe while congress is in session."
I would like to propose another: No one's dogs are safe while police are on patrol.
FLORENCE, Texas -- The Vybiral family are dog lovers; considering their four-legged companions members of their family. It started with Sassy, a six year old Rhodesian Ridgeback. Now this family is mourning, Sassy is dead.
"She's crying, she's hysterical. 'There's blood mom. She's shooting guns.'" Louise Vybiral describes the phone call she received from her daughter Caren Friday afternoon.
Caren says she was watching a movie with her two year old daughter Lilly when gunshots rang out. She thought they were coming from across the street.
"Thought maybe Chevron was being robbed or something. I didn't have any idea what was going on," Caren Vybiral said. "And when I walked to open the door, there was another gun shot."
Caren said Sassy was lying in the door way bleeding. And standing above her was Florence Police Chief Julie Elliot-Abshire. After a short exchange, Caren said the chief ran to the back yard and shot the other family dog that was locked up, a two year old pit bull named Boomer.
"I asked her what is going on," Caren described, "and she said, um, the b-word, did you not hear me knocking on your front door. And I said no, why did you shoot my dogs?"
[...]But what truly frightens this family, one of the shots went into the home. Fragments of a bullet still lie on the windowsill.
Just another day "serving the public" for our taxfeeders in uniform.
