"A lot has yet to be determined here as to what and when shots were fired -- how the officer received injuries, how the homeowner received injuries," Alexander said.

Translation:  We gotta get our story straight so we can blame it on the homeowner.

If he didn't have a gray and brick house he wouldn't have been shot. Case closed.

"The police chief said details about how the shooting broke out are under investigation. He said he could not confirm whether one or multiple officers fired shots."

How is that not the first question you ask your officers when investigating a shooting. You obviously could confirm that, you're choosing not to to cover your ass and then wondering why the public doesn't trust you.

He said all three of the officers who were at the scene will be placed on administrative leave.

I'm sure criminal charges for this ridiculous level of negligence will be sure to follow.

Given the homeowner hasn't apparently been charged and the officers are on paid suspension, does alone else reckon the homeowner was unarmed and a trigger happy cop shot one of his partners?

I can almost guarantee this will prove to be false.

In another article, the chief said that the back door being unlocked was a sign there could be an intruder inside so they went inside.  I just can't believe cops think like that.  I don't lock my door if I'm home and I don't know anyone that does.  Cops can find "suspicion" in just about anything.

And another fine Dekalb County story.

\ Given this neighborhood, the bogus call doesn't surprise me.

So the officers show up... go to a house and proceed to walk in some dude's back door because it was open and then kill his dog. What in the fark.

Not necessarily. He never said *when* they identified themselves.

How about if you're not even sure you're at the right house, instead of running into a strangers house guns blazing, you, ya know, try knocking on the door? Ever think of that?

"On further search of the residence, Law Enforcement Officials found numerous prescription bottles, $42.00 in cash, a handgun and several empty liquor bottles. This was obviously a major drug dealing operation."

I'm going with cop enters wrong house, dog attacks, he shoots at the dog and shoots himself in the leg in the process, the homeowner comes running out to see what the commotion is and the cop shoots him as well.

If the door is ajar...yeah, most cops will think burglary. Now if it is closed, but unlocked not so much.

Man I wish I could commit heinous crimes while at work and get paid leave.

"Hows it going Dave?"
"Not great Bill I'm really feeling stressed."
"Well lets go break into some poor schlubs house and shoot him and his dog and have a nice vacation."
"Yeah sounds good man."
 
2015-09-01 08:26:17 AM  
Maybe the cops shouldn't have gone in with guns blazing. Crazy idea, I know. Maybe if someone had knocked on the door this wouldn't have happened.

I feel bad for the dog. It didn't know what was happening, it probably tried to defend its family, and the cops shot it to death.

Depends.

If it turns out there is someone other than the homeowner there they can pin the "burglary" on, they can get hit with a "in commission of a felony" charge. Or if they plant enough weed.

Otherwise, the county needs to suck it up and repair the walls.

1. They all had guns. That's how the shooting broke out.

2. They all fired their guns. Why waste an opportunity?

There. Investigation closed.

I'm going with a similar story, but a few modifications:

...cop enters wrong house, dog attackscomes running up to greet the friendly people with his tail wagging, he shoots at the dog and shoots himselfhis partner in the leg in the process, the homeowner comes running out to see what the commotion is and the cop shoots him as well.

A lot of cops don't seem to need for a dog to be attacking to panic like retards and start popping off in a residential area at everything that moves.

Much like cats, all houses are gray in the dark.

Before of after they started shooting? Or is this one of these cases where they yell POLICE and immediately open fire?

Remember folks, while there is an unofficial upper limit of tested intelligence to become a Police Officer in the United States, there is no lower limit.

This is the same county where the old sheriff had the new sheriff murdered because he won the election.

Their County CEO just went to jail for a year or two as well for corruption.

We are also waiting for the report to come out on county corruption.  The preliminary story is that the county is 'rotten to the core', and the response to that was to cut off funding for it.
 
2015-09-01 08:32:14 AM  
Somebody's arse is grass. That's pretty much all you can count on.
 
2015-09-01 08:33:45 AM  
My take is:

1. Cops enter THE WRONG RESIDENCE.
2. Dog comes to say hello, or maybe attack an intruder.
3. Cop shoots dog.
4. Homeowner awakened by gunfire IN HIS OWN HOME grabs his own gun and comes out an caps unknown, unidentified, idiot standing in the dark in front of homeowner's dead dog.
5. Idiot policeman panics and can't manage a kill shot on the homeowner because he can't aim higher than the height of a dog.

Well that is highly suspicious -- why did this homeowner unlock the both the screen door **and** the back door? Clearly he was up to no good. The hero Cops were well within their rights to draw guns and start shooting the place up.

There's a War on, people -- it's the War on Crime, the War on Drugs and the War on Terror.
Don't do anything to make yourself look like a criminal and you have nothing to fear.

I'm sure there are details missing from the story, but I don't know how you dispute this. They came in and fired a warning shot into the dog; you should know they're cops at that point.

Into the blue again: So the officers show up... go to a house and proceed to walk in some dude's back door because it was open and then kill his dog. What in the fark.


The sad thing is that the dog probably heard the back door open, and ran to greet whoever was coming to visit his poppa, the cops bravely shiat their panties and heroicly shot the rabid death monster who was "coming right for them!!!" (for tummy rubs and slobbery hand-kisses).

I'd have shot the f*cker that did that to my dog. Cop or no cop.

No.  In that case, the individual officers involved need to repair the walls.  They should have to pay for the materials out of their own pockets, and they should be the ones that show up and do the repair work, and if they do a shiatty job, keep doing it until it's right.

If the county pays for it, that means the citizens will pay for it, and the officers involved won't learn the lessons necessary to prevent them, and their peers, from making the same mistakes again.

Until the police officers have "skin in the game", they won't modify their behavior.

They will find some way to try and accuse the homeowner. The Thugs in Blue rarely take responsibility for the terror and sorrow the inflict on innocent people.

I'm not sure why people think the dog was likely offering a friendly greeting to home invaders in the middle of the night.

Barking, growling or attacking would all be much more likely responses.

I'm not saying the dog was at fault here - that blame clearly lies at the feet of the cluster fark police squad, but if it confronted or attacked the home invaders it did exactly what most people would want and expect from a dog.
 
2015-09-01 08:54:44 AM  
Another consequence of the complete refusal of this nation to reign in its gun nuts. With proper, sane gun control laws, the most likely outcome of this scenario is a dead dog, a wounded homeowner and a completely healthy cop.

I remember two cases on PC.  One was PC for running from the cops because guilty conscience.  The other was walking normally in a bad part of town. Clearly suspicious behavior
 
2015-09-01 08:56:20 AM  
The police found an unlocked door? At night? I'm surprised they didn't just toss a grenade in. Plus, why do you need a dog when you have these officers looking out for you?
