"She was probably trying to play with you"

On February 11, 2010, a Columbia, Missouri SWAT team shot a family's pit bull and corgi in front of a small child while aggressively serving a search warrant on their home.  In a video of the raid, the distressed home owner can be heard saying "What the fuck did you shoot my dog for?  That was a good dog.  She was probably trying to play with you."

The pit bull was killed, but the corgi, who was shot in the paw, made it.

After sitting on their warrant for eight days, the cops found only a misdemeanor amount of weed.  As long as we keep sending SWAT teams to serve search warrants on small time dealers, the casualties will keep piling up.
