TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! TKC TIPSTERS WARN: FEAR UPCOMING SEASON OF KANSAS CITY DOGGIES GUNNED DOWN BY POLICE!!!
Fair play for Sunday, in much the same way that our blog community supports 1st responders and hopes for their safety, it's appropriate to examine criticism from animal lovers who object to authorities and their policy in coping with animals.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS WARN THAT NICER KANSAS CITY SPRING WEATHER RENEWS THREATS TO LOCAL DOGGIES FROM POLICE!!!
Here's the world:
"TKC, just wanted to remind your readers that we're keeping the pressure on City Hall in the effort to save local animals from KCPD gunfire. Our petition Justice for Sierra & All Pets Shot by KCMO PD has more than 50,000 signatures, we have contacted national authorities about our effort and plan to make more announcements in the future. In the meantime, we just want to warn Kansas City that our pets also need protection and justice in order to make KC truly feel safe."
A bit of testimony from the petition:
"They didn't announce themselves as police. When the resident opened the door, her 11 yr old rescue dog, a boxer named Sierra, ran outside. One of the officers shot at her instantly & missed. Sierra turned to run back to the house when the officer shot at her, this time killing her as she was seeking cover from the woman who raised and adored her. Sierra's mom, Brandee, was standing in the door screaming "Don't shoot, don't shoot!" when one of the officer's callously responded "too late"."
To be fair . . .
Kansas City Police are constantly under attack from animals and resist shooting in far more instances than local media will ever report. A recent ruling in Federal Court offered while there is a constitutional right under the Fourth Amendment to not have one’s dog unreasonably seized i.e. killed . . . The killing of two dogs threatening police was justified.
KMBC offered a chance for both sides of this story to speak and our blog community is FIRST to announce progress of recent legislative work on the topic of doggie safety coming soon . . .
