A cop tells the truth

Dead Dog Tales.

Two dogs killed this week in Gwin­net Coun­ty, Geor­gia. Two very dif­fer­ent reac­tions from local author­i­ties.

Here’s the first:

Gwin­nett police are ask­ing for the public’s help in track­ing down the per­son who stabbed and dis­mem­bered a dog before dis­card­ing the car­cass behind a Duluth store.


A stab wound led to the dog’s death, said Gwin­nett police spokes­woman Cpl. Illana Spell­man.

Spell­man said inves­ti­ga­tors are espe­cial­ly anx­ious to get leads that could point them to the cul­prit in the “grue­some” crime, adding that “any­body that is capa­ble of doing that is capa­ble of doing any­thing,” Spell­man said.

Who­ev­er killed the dog is sub­ject to be charged with aggra­vat­ed cru­el­ty to ani­mals, which car­ries a penal­ty of one to five years in prison and fines of up to $15,000, police said.

Here’s the oth­er sto­ry:

A fam­i­ly in Gwin­nett Coun­ty was out­raged Wednes­day night after they say police offi­cers shot their beloved dog.  The home­own­ers said the inci­dent hap­pened because police went to the wrong house.


The home­own­er said when police went into the garage she heard three shots.  The home­own­er said an offi­cer told her they shot the dog and the dog ran off.


Offi­cer said they were look­ing for a mate­r­i­al wit­ness in a gang member’s tri­al, but they entered the wrong home.  Police entered 1468B, instead of 1468A.

Offi­cers said the dog charged and the offi­cer felt he was in immi­nent dan­ger and shot the dog.

The vicious beast was a 2-year-old Dal­ma­t­ian.

It’s the sec­ond time in 10 days that cops in Gwin­nett Coun­ty have forced their way into the wrong home.

[The Agi­ta­tor]

I don’t often see a Gestapo spokesman (or woman) tell the truth, but when this thug said that “any­body that is capa­ble of [bru­tal­ly killing a dog] is capa­ble of doing any­thing,” she was clear­ly not spec­u­lat­ing, but speak­ing from per­son­al expe­ri­ence.
