If I’m ever SWATed, my dog will definitely go down in a hail of lead. Not because he was gallantly defending his master, but because those evil interlopers carry lasers – the sparkly red nemesis of his existence. I imagine him furiously barking and chasing the beams around the room, paying no mind at all to the men standing there with the guns . . .
Aiming lasers are great tools for putting lead downrange, but not so much for entertaining ol’ Spot. If you want to drive your dog insane, it’s best to use a laser pointer or toy. Or you can learn the hard way, like Robert Walters of Salem, Oregon, that a gun-mounted laser isn’t the best choice for late-night, alcohol-infused entertainment.
Walters is facing five counts of reckless endangerment and one count of unlawful discharge after blowing the crap out of his TV while playing laser tag with his pooch. Police say Walters forgot the gun was loaded and pulled the trigger while pointing it at his TV. The round exited his home and penetrated a wall in his neighbor’s house, hence the five counts of endangerment – one for each freaked-out person in the domicile next door.
No word yet as to whether the dog will be filing charges.
