Court rules that cops can legally execute your dog even if it may not attack them

The apex authority holds the power to rule out or in any law that does welfare of its citizens and we rely on them for doing that. But according to a conclusion by US Court of Appeals for the sixth circuit, Police officers are justified for killing your pet if the poor animals may not attempt to attack. Pitbulls Bible brings to a case where cops mercilessly shot 2 pit bulls for no good reason.

On 17th April 2013 Police of Michigan attempted to execute a search warrant at Mark and Cheryl Brown’s home as an informant reported that another man, Vincent Jones was involved in the distribution of illegal drugs at the place where Browns lived. Although Mark Brown was not even a suspect in the search and Jones had already been apprehended, Mark’s dogs who were far from the case had to bite the dust.

It was when Mark came home for lunch and let out his dogs. He locked the door and went back to work where the police arrived and detained him. While on duty at Brown’s home, the officers fired a round at the dogs. The poor little dogs naturally fled to the basement in fear but the remorseless officers didn’t stop there. They shot & killed the innocent pets justifying, “We did not feel we could safely clear the basement with those dogs down there. Basement was loaded. You’ve gotta look under beds, you’ve gotta do everything, and [the dogs] basically prevented us from doing that, and they were protecting that basement.

When Browns filed a lawsuit against the Battle Creek police station for the death of their darling pits, the court disconcertingly ruled in favor of the police officers under ‘doctrine of qualified immunity’. The court has now legally set the precedent that police can kill your pet for the sole reason of being one. If it moves, barks or even sits in a corner, he’ll be shot dead. Is that reasonable?
