Nice shooting by the Camden police. 33 shots for an 8 month old pit bull puppy. http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?se...cal&id=8077437 Aycox says police investigators told her 33 rounds were fired. "The cop said he felt like he was going to attack him," said Aycox, "and he just shot at him. The one cop hollered 'don't shoot him', but he shot him. When he shot him, the dog fell to the ground, was shaking and crying, but he just stood over top of him and kept shooting repeatedly." "He just came running out of the house," said neighbor Kelly McCulley. "He plays with the kids all the time. He saw all the kids up there and that's what he thought, that he was coming to play, and they just shot him over and over and over." The dog was hit and fell in one area, but the bullets sprayed elsewhere, shooting out the window of a van that several women were getting ready to get into. The women say there were children everywhere. Neighbors say several other vehicles were hit, and the bullets pierced a nearby home, hitting a window and a wall inside. The family was inside watching television and had no idea what was going on. "It was just crazy. It was like a war zone out there," said the resident of the home. Sad fact is, it seems cops just lo-o-ove to kill dogs. Incidents of this sort seem to be very common. Not just dogs, though. We had a really ugly shooting here in Long Beach in December in which a drunk, fooling around with a hose nozzle, was shot to death by cops hiding in a nearby house. (A neighbor had thought the hose nozzle might be a "small revolver.") This occurred in broad daylight at a range of only a few feet. That damn nozzle looked like no handgun known to man! I would expect even a cop to know the difference. (Contrary to popular opinion, most cops know little to nothing about guns.) I was recently angered to learn that these cowardly, trigger-happy incompetents are back patrolling the streets without any disciplinary repercussions. I'm no cop-hater. Some of my closest personal friends have had law-enforcement backgrounds, but I sure don't buy into this post 9/11 notion that someone is a "hero" just because he (or she) wears a badge and uniform!
