Being a jackbooted thug is doggone fun to the cops in St. Bernard Parish — quite literally. No longer content with forcing people from their homes or stealing their guns, they are now shooting dogs. I’m not talking about putting down some abandoned, starving, or injured creature — but shooting people’s loved (and presumably well cared for) family pets. The Oxford Press reports:
That left forced evacuee Marie Miller on the verge of tears.
“They shot our dogs!” Miller, a 54-year-old housewife, said of her mixed pit bulls, Angel and Hooch. She had gone inside to collect clothes and personal papers when she heard it.
“Boom! Boom!” Miller said. “Hooch came in and had blood all over him.”
Expect the heartless killing of family pets to be added to the next update of the FEMA Disaster Operations Manual, placed somewhere between victim disarmament and relocation to the gulags.
