#1 It's Chicago. A year or so ago, something like this happened in Austin, TX. A dog was shot and killed in front of its owner. The dog was no threat. The locals got a petition together to remove the police officer from duty. News of the shooting was also put on FB with an online petition. Tens of thousands signed the petition. An investigation found the officer used bad judgment and coupled with the political heat from the community the officer did get removed from duty. The dog's owner got an apology from APD.
