As a follow up my previous post, The Progressive Nanny State and Murder for the Greater Good, here is a story that illustrates what dangers the individual citizen faces when the state becomes involved in Prohibition.
Story: Family questions SWAT drug search that led to dog’s death.
There is so much missing from this it's disgraceful. The dog ran to the door and was barking... Anybody else have a dog that does this when someone comes to the door much less smashes it in??? Shots were fired all through this house. Numerous shots were fired thoughout this house. 7 in the pitbull itself. Blood everywhere! Bullet holes in the walls, moldings, tile. Will the City be paying for that to be fixed?? They didn't know any details when they went in. I would love to know which judge signed off on the search warrant. CPD had NO idea he was married and NO idea he had a child! Don't you think that might be something you want to get to know before you storm a house? Not like they don't live in a nice neighborhood as well. 30+ officers and a swat bus for a dimebag and a pipe. 2 different neighbors called police reporting shots fired. Dispatch told said callers there were no officers on scene! What a cluster****! If I still lived in CoMO I wouldn't vote for a single thing to support CPD. The idiots are running the assylum!
So its OK to have SWAT kick in a door, shoot two pet dogs, a Pit Bull and a Corgi, killing the Bit Bull, for what appears to be a misdemeanor amount of marijuana. Then throw on a child endangerment charge? How nice. How about an extra charge for kitchen knives and floor cleaner in the house. I am a strong supporter of law enforcement and am not a fan of Pit Bulls or drug dealers, but come on folks. Was the risk taken by the SWAT team worth it. Multiple gun shots in a house with human lives present including a seven year old. a wife, for a little pot. Hell even a lot of pot! Bottom line is that the cops were ready to kill , or be killed themselvs for that matter, to enforce these laws. Is it really worth it.
