The old lady cooking artichokes in the kitchen, two well taken care of Black Labradors in your average nice home wasn't enough of a sign that they were fouling up? How could those dogs have even had a chance to react and "engage" if they just started shooting as soon as they knocked the door in?
How traumatic. Especially for the mother in law being cuffed and watching her daughter and son in laws dogs die in their own house. How can they be compensated for this? Impossible to unsee something like that. Not to mention the Mayor and his wifes reputation and good names after being affiliated with something like that, even after it was learned a few other people were victims of identity theft and used in the same way
Terribly sad for the mayor and his wife, and the elderly lady. The police who smashed down their door and shot their dogs were so far out of line, it's hard to believe. What possible reason could they have for doing this? Did they think the Granny was a mule for a Columbian drug cartel? Maybe they should have looked in the box first,the fumes from 32 pounds of weed would have settled them right down. I heard a stumbling report made by one of the idiot police force who said "The dogs engaged them"......likely to lick them to death. Unbelievable.
How would they know there was pot in the package before the people even opened it? Sounds like something fishy may have been going on. On a side note, if the police force there has to go all out for pot dealers it must be a pretty safe area. No murderers, meth dealers or child molesters to go after? I feel sorry for them, but the police have shot people in very similar situations. The older woman is luck they didn't shoot her for haveing those dangerous cooking utensils around.
