Video Shows Columbia SWAT Team Killing Dog in Drug Bust

Covered this a few days ago, but it's worth revisiting. Of course, the police did nothing wrong. You can clearly hear how vicious and aggressive the dogs were. I mean, a dog barking at strange men in Darth Vader outfits, assaulting its owner...clearly they had to be put down. And it's not embarrassing at all that two dogs were shot, a man arrested, in front of terrified children, over a minuscule amount of marijuana and some paraphernalia. Retarded thugs.

    Fox Kansas City -

    The shooting death of a pit bull in a SWAT team raid is bringing about policy changes in the Columbia, Missouri Police Department.

    A SWAT team raided a home in Columbia and during the raid, shot and killed the family's pit bull. They also shot and injured a corgi. YouTube video of the raid shows a child was also in the home at the time.

    The police chief is backing up his officers' actions.

    "Every indicator to me shows that this was a justifiable shooting. The dog was aggressive and the dog got shot," Chief Ken Burton said.

    The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that SWAT officers found a grinder, a pipe and a small amount of marijuana in the home.

    Columbia's mayor said changes will be made to the policy police officers follow when executing a search warrant.
