A Greensboro police officer shot a mixed breed dog in the face after she charged him. The dog belonged to a man who called police after seeing a ladder get stolen. Police arrived and even though the dog was visible on the porch sleeping, an officer still attempted to approach. The dog got up and did charge at the officer, barking.
In perhaps the most detailed news article I have ever seen (Washington Post article on the Prince George shooting excepted), the author details every single iota of information that paints the officer as a bumbling fool who disregarded obvious warning signs and randomly shot his gun at a beloved family pet (while also saying that it would have been okay if the dog was a pit bull or rottweiler in front of a drug house, oh the hypocrisy).
