One year

January 15th was the one year anniversary of the botched Howard County Police SWAT team raid on an apparently innocent man's home that resulted in the shooting death of a family dog. The SWAT team was looking for a Sig Sauer assault rife that was stolen from a police car. The rifle, to this day, still has not been located. And the Howard County Police Department has released no more information about the incident since the above linked article (from February 2009) and refuses to respond to any citizen inquiries about the ordeal.

I've heard it said that you can tell a lot about a society by how they treat animals. Since this botched raid and dog shooting, the HCPD has also botched a murder investigation.

Tax dollars at work!

Our police dept is severly unequipped to deal with the human reaction to coping with density of the kind being passed by the council.

Put ANY group of animals in close quarters and watch the violence escalate.
