September 2010: Police Throw Dog Down Stairwell, Shoot Him
Two leashed dogs got into a scuffle at a festival. The larger dog, a Pit Bull Mix, became agitated and his foster guardians was having a difficult time calming him down. When police arrived, they shoved the owner away and manhandled the dog (you can see the picture with the dog under control). Instead of lassoing, catch-poling, tasering, leashing, throwing into the back of a car, the officer picked up the dog, flung him down a flight of stairs, and shot him multiple times, killing the dog. Go team, New York!
