Cops Sic K9 on 81-Yr-Old Grandma as She Cleaned her Shed

Coon Rapids, MN — An 81-year-old grandma was hospitalized last month after she was attacked by a police K9 while cleaning her shed in her own backyard. Police are now claiming that they ‘acted appropriately’ when they unleashed their dog on this innocent woman.

The Free Thought Project reported the incident when it happened in February. Now, the local news station has obtained the dashcam from the incident. It is nothing short of infuriating as the innocent woman is thrown in the back of the car after being bitten by a K9 and treated like a criminal.




Choua Xiong got up early on a Sunday morning last month to clean out her shed in her backyard. She had done nothing wrong and posed no threat, when police, looking for a ‘suspect’, entered her backyard without a warrant and unleashed their K9 on her.

According to police, a neighbor called 9-1-1 after she saw a suspicious person in a black coat in her backyard. The caller said she heard a loud noise outside but couldn’t tell where it came from. As police investigated, they entered Xiong’s yard and saw a person in her shed. That person was Xiong.

Xiong, who is hard of hearing, did not hear the officers calling for her to come out of the shed. According to police, they yelled for the ‘suspect’ to come out of the shed 10-15 times, however, no one emerged — so they unleashed the dog.




Instead of entering the shed to see if it could’ve been a child with headphones on — or an innocent old woman who was hard of hearing — police sent in their K9 to tear apart whoever it was that couldn’t hear their demands to come out.
