WASHINGTON D.C. police are investigating after an officer shot and killed a dog that allegedly attacked him while serving a search warrant at a Northwest Washington home Tuesday night.
Marietta Robinson, who lives at the address, said police were unjustified in killing the dog, which she put in the bathroom before police entered the home. Police were searching for her grandson, who the woman said hasnt lived there in so long, not even her 13-year-old dog knew what her grandson looked like.
An officer entered the bathroom over the 62-year-old womans protests and shot the dog, named Wrinkles. As many as eight shots may have been fired, Robinson said.

Link to AP story on the shooting, which has a picture of the dog... it is a pug:
8 shots for a pug?!
A swift boot could have handled it.
Cowardly cops are all that’s allowed in DC with the coward in chief.
I generally support the police on anything, but I know Dogs and this was a friggin Pug. Cmon, let the little turd chew on your Pants and have Grandma get him.
Just another isolated incident...
The cops sure seem to be after Grannies. Read a story on FR today where they tazed an 86 year old granny. Must have been tea partiers. And the pug too.
>When do they start shooting people as SOP on serving a search warrant?

The granny said she doesn’t want any apology, she wants them all fired and hire somebody that knows what they’re doing.
Go grannie. Drugs or no drugs, when the cops go into a bathroom where they know a little dog is and shoot it eight times when granny warns them and begs them- I’m on grannies side.
Another needle-d***, trigger-happy oinker “saves the day”!!!!
Wow, if I hadn’t read the article, I’d have sworn that an LEO in Florida had done the shooting. This type of thing is more than just a little bit up their alley.
A pug? A pug?
Just wait, someone will be here shortly justifying this.
Something is mentally wrong with a man who would shoot a 13 year old smash faced pug. Keeping the officer on the force is a disaster waiting to happen.
If nothing else this moron should be laughed off of the team he was on. More likely than not, he’ll get a minor reprimand.
Personally, I wouldn’t want this guy within 10 miles of me while he has a loaded weapon and is conducting any type of “operation”.
Pugs: A known man-killer..........can’t be too careful just before Dunkin’s has a fresh batch due out.........
“I’ll get you and your little dog”.........
There’s not a lot of exposure to the various dog breeds, apart from pit bulls, in the ‘hood. I’m sorry to say it but that’s the truth.
