Get the Protest Signs Ready!
Once again, a completely unjustified shooting of a poor defenseless animal:
- A Calumet District police officer shot and killed a pit bull attacking a woman on the far South Side Monday evening. The woman, 49, of the 100 block of East 118th Place, was walking down the 11800 block of South Michigan Avenue around 6 p.m. when she passed a man and his pit bull, according to Calumet District Lt. Tim Bickham.
- The owner was unable to control the dog and officers already in the area tried to force to the dog to release the woman's arm, Bickham said. The dog did not release the arm so an officer discharged one shot, killing the dog on the scene, Bickham said. The pit bull was not on a leash, said Bickham, who added the officer may have saved the woman's life.
We've heard a certain reassigned District sergeant is readying protest signs for use by interested reverends and activists. Because everyone knows the dog didn't really mean to tear that woman's arm off. He was just a misunderstood victim of society.
