Earlier this month in Garrison, Minnesota, police came to a woman's house because her car by chance was similar to a car used in a recent bank robbery. The woman wasn't in any way connected to the robbery. As she spoke with one police officer, another walked around back to look around. He entered her backyard where, as any reasonable person might suspect, one of her two dogs snarled at the sight of a stranger poking around on the property.

The officer pulled out his gun and shot the dog dead, while the woman's two-year-old son watched from 20 feet away. The officer won't be disciplined.

Meanwhile, a Pittsburgh man was jailed last week and held on $100,000 bond. His crime? Threatening a police dog that startled him with a growl as he walked by.
