The City of Leander, Texas, has announced that it will not pay the veterinary bill for a dog who was shot by a Leander Police officer after the police came onto the property of James and Renata Simmons on June 17. When the officers entered, the Simmons’ German Shepherd, Vinny, came running around the side of the house and was shot by one of the officers who felt the dog was a threat to their safety.
It turned out that the officers were trying to execute a warrant at the wrong address in Liberty Hill. Vinny needed extensive veterinary care to save his life and the Simmons, through their attorney, filed a claim with the City of Leander to cover the $1,500 in vet bills.
The City of Leander responded on August 15 that it is denying the claim because the City is not responsible for the officer who shot Vinny in his own yard.
Proof that we have too many cops without enough to do....again cut the budget and reduce the police force
For this needless gathering the Fairfax county police sent six cops for the dedication of a K9 statue. Why six? Why not one? In fact, why any at all. We are not paying...well...we not supposed to be paying the cops to play dress up parade.....six cops, three hours so this silliness cost the people of Fairfax County about $1,000, up and aside from the almost $200,000,000...that;s two hundred million, the cops already take out of the budget.
BENNETTSVILLE, S.C. (AP) _ A Bennettsville police officer has been suspended without pay for two months after his police dog died in a car of heat stroke.
Officer Robert Miller will be placed on probation for 90 days following the suspension and can no longer be a K-9 officer…..yeah but the dog is still dead……. the dog, named Tank, died Monday when he was left in a patrol car with no water and the windows up as Miller went into the department to do some paperwork.
