News Video: Ocoee Police Performing Boat Check Enter Fenced-in Yard and Kill Family Dog


The Brooks family had just sat down to eat lunch when they heard someone entering their fenced-in front yard. The family’s two dogs, Duke and Minnie, ran outside through the dog doors to see who was there, followed closely behind by their owner, Charlie Brooks.

By the time Brooks opened his front door, Duke was dead. Shot in the head by a police officer – who would later be identified as a school resource officer – that entered the family’s fenced-in yard to inquire about a boat anchored at the lake across the street.

Lisa Brooks described the incident on Facebook.

“Four years ago, Charlie and I moved to our new home in Ocoee, with a lakefront lot across the street where we could store our boat on the water. The road our home faces is a busy street, so to protect our dogs, we had the entire yard fenced and gated. Early afternoon this past Monday, an Ocoee police officer came to our home, opened and walked through our front gate, then began walking up our driveway towards our front door. Hearing a noise, our sweet, 11 year-old dog, Duke, ran out of his doggy door to greet his new “friend.” The police officer pulled out his gun and shot him in the head. Even as Charlie was standing in the doorway, the officer fired his weapon, killing our best friend.”

“I didn’t have any time to react,” Charlie Brooks told the Orange Observer. “I couldn’t say, ‘No,’ or, ‘What are you doing’ — it just happened so fast that as I was coming out through the door, the officer had already had his gun drawn and was shooting. It was probably 15 or 20 feet away from the door.”

    I think any officer executing a family pet claiming fear for their life,, should be fired , given a box of tampons because they are too much of a p,.,y to be a cop.. Oh,, exactly why in the hell is a SCHOOL RESOURCE officer doing armed,, and going door to door about a damned boat?

    Too bad the homeowner was not carrying and shot the trespassing officer dead, he could always use the same excuse the cop used to kill his dog. I was in fear for my life. I would have ripped that cops throat out with my teeth and shit on his corpse. That cop deserves death, for he is a coward and a true POS. I hope and pray that he ends up dead with a bullet to the head, or gutted and left for dead, let the rats eat his dead body!!!!
