Pretty sad if they push a charge on that one.

The man shot one of the dogs. A cop shot the other two. And now the man may face charges for shooting inside DC? Wait, The cop shot also and he is not facing the same charges? NO NO NO! This is VERY WRONG. Cops enforce the law. They are not "the" law nor are they above the law. If exigent circumstances justify the cop's shots, they certainly justify the man's shot.

The same police that won't press charges on what's his face for bringing a 30 round magazine on TV?....

And AGAIN, gentlemen, THIS is why you oppose ANY and ALL gun laws.... they always come for the law abiding citizens....

Well I wonder who reported the circumstances of the first dog being shot. I'd bed dollars to donuts that the LEO that shot the second and third dogs reported this good Samaritan and set this tragic direction in motion.

There's a time to look the other way.

And good Samaritans, don't hang out to be media heroes. Do the job and leave quietly, there is no need for a press release.

So I guess that means if someone breaks in to your house and you shoot um you can be charged with firing a gun in city limits!

Not exactly. The problem with this situation was the man who shot the dog was not on his own property. Read the article.

Interesting that this should appear in the Huffington Post which is one of the most liberal news outlets in the country.
