Police Union Thinks Shooting of Dog Was Swell

Union goon says dog "could" have been a threat. Well, so could he.


A dog shot and killed by a cop could have been a threat to bite officers. That's the opinion of the Omaha police union president.
Our Sister Station WOWT, Channel Six News, first showed the exclusive video of the incident last month.

A man walking the family pet in a search area ignored orders to stop so police arrested him and an officer shot and killed the dog.
Omaha Police Union President Sgt. John Wells told Fact Finders, "Based on the video I don't see that the officers acted inappropriately."

But the dog owner's sister takes a different view, "I think the officer was wrong shooting Teela. She wouldn't hurt anybody."
