Dog Chases Burglar, Cop Shoots Dog and Lets Burglar Get Away


LOUISVILLE, KY — When Brandis Pepper left her home with her three young children to go to the dentist on Tuesday, she did not realize that it was the last time she would see some of her possessions.

When the family returned, they found their home had been ransacked.

One of the windows had been smashed.

The children’s things had been tossed around; Brandis could not believe that her home had been ripped apart.

They had been burgled and worse yet the teenage culprit got away, despite police getting to the scene.

But she isn’t the only one upset on the street.

It turns out that the police shot a neighbor’s pet dog.

The youth who burglarized the home managed to jump over the fence into a neighbor’s backyard as he was being chased by a police officer.

A pit bull at the neighbor’s property lunged at him, as any dog would naturally do if it sensed a dangerous intruder in the house.

The cop also came into the yard.

Instead of continuing to chase the burglar, the cop drew out his gun and shot the dog instead, letting the burglar get away.

The police are claiming that the dog “charged” at the officer, so we guess the officer will say he feared for his life.

That a burglar is able to get away from a dog without killing it but a police officer stops to kill it (while letting the burglar get away) is quite telling.

To many, it illustrate the inadequacy of contemporary police training.

Neighbors are reeling from the shock of the break-in that took place in broad daylight as well as the death of a pet that was following its instinct and standing up to intruders in his space.

The whole episode seems an exercise in futility because the suspect is still at large.

All three of Brandis’ children are under the age of six and she scared for her family.

“My fear is that he’s going to try to come back to my house, or what if it’s night time and we’re asleep and he tries to come back,” she said in an interview with

    Yeah, well if the burglar decides to come back you are really screwed; because these incompetent morons are likely to kill one of your children next! You better have someone you can actually trust on speed dial! Jesus, it’s no longer a joke, your better off calling a crack head!

      the funny thing is, you never hear of people being worried about the gangs anymore. what people are worried about is the gang with badges! when Americans trust street gangs, and the mafia more. or fear them less then cops,….that’s a problem

    It is not mutually exclusive. …you can support your police force and still hold them to a higher standard…..I truly TRY to believe this…but this shoot pitbulls on sight mentality that cops have is truly testing my resolve about that…..the fucker could have gone around the dog….after seeing that it didnt attack the burglar he shouldn’t have any right to say the dog was vicious

      I was raised to respect cops, because they used to be respectable, and respectful to others. but these days I see no difference between these cops and any other group of criminals/terrorists

    Studies have shown that individuals who enjoy or are willing to inflict harm on animals are more likely to do so to humans. One of the known warning signs of certain psychopathologies, including antisocial personality disorder, (which is the term for Psycopath/Sociopath) is a history of torturing pets and small animals. According to the New York Times:”The FBI has found that a history of cruelty to animals is one of the traits that regularly appear in its computer records of serial rapists and murderers, and the standard diagnostic and treatment manual for psychiatric and emotional disorders lists cruelty to animals as a diagnostic criterion for conduct disorders.

    what ever happened to apprehending him at a later time. Police are supposed to be trained to observe and remember certain things about a suspect. I guess observing and apprehending later has become easy to get a cop side tracked when opportunity of killing something is at hand.
