Minneapolis Police Shoot ‘Obama’ … The Dog

Minneapolis police shoot ‘Obama’ … the dog

Then they shot Obama. His dog.

“In some of their answers to interrogatories, they [officers] claim that the dog was coming at them. Which if you look at where the blood was, it wasn’t even close to where they were,” says attorney Paul Applebaum.

Applebaum says Williams was not arrested and officers didn’t find any contraband in the home.

Police spokesman Sgt. William Palmer declined to comment on the settlement, but he says sometimes officers who show up unannounced to homes encounter aggressive dogs. Palmer says often the dogs are doing what they’re trained to do.
