June 2010 - La Grange Police Shoot Restrained, Non-Aggressive Dog

LaGrange, Missouri - For little more than an hour, police harassed and chased down a loose Pit Bull. About 10 minutes of the "chase" is caught on police video. It shows a dog who is calm, not moving and only becomes agitated when police pursue her aggressively. At some point, the dog is on a catch pole. This means the dog is restrained and can now be safely placed in an animal control vehicle or the back of a police cruiser with appropriate protection.

Instead, the officer shoots the dog once. She goes down but is screaming and still conscious. He finally shoots her again and kills her. The dog was a beloved pet. She did not bite anyone.
