I already hear you asking how this could be a state sponsored criminal, it starts off as an everyday crime. The police weren’t involved and were merely investigating the death.
The unidentified officer and a detective had arrived at the home to notify family members that Ellerbe had been killed. His body was discovered shortly after 6 a.m. Wednesday, face down near an alley.
Let me get this straight. A young man was killed, over the money in his wallet. You travel to the home to inform the family, and then to add insult to injury, you shoot the young man’s dog. You shoot his dog, YOU SHOOT HIS [email protected]#$ING DOG. (Stops and spends 5 minutes saying woosah, remember the pressure points).
What in the name of god were you thinking. Maybe you should back off, yell up to the house, even try calling them on the phone. This is the 21st century, you do have a phone don’t you?
No instead you walk up to the house, invading the dogs territory, you see it running at you, and assume it is going to attack you. You then plug the dog with a couple new holes with a lead slinging instrument and then tell the family, “Your son’s dead. BAM BAM, oh was that his dog? Yeah, you’re gonna need to bury him too.”
If I walk up to someone’s house and someone’s dog runs at me, I don’t just get to shoot it and claim self-defense, neither does the mailman. So why do these people get a sudden free pass to shoot any dog they want.
State Sponsored Criminal #366: Officer John Doe*
Because the correct way to inform someone that their son is dead is by shooting the boy’s dog first. Nothing say’s I’m sorry for your loss than killing the family pet.
*If you find it contact me, I want his name for the count.
