What was that about “know your target?” “An on-duty Chicago police officer was shot in the leg Monday night when a police officer fired at a charging dog in the Englewood neighborhood,” officer.com reports.
“Two officers and a supervisor proceeded to the second floor landing of the building, where they were confronted by a vicious dog, according to police. When the dog charged toward them, an officer fired a single shot that struck the dog and also traveled through the officer’s thigh, according to a police source who was not authorized to speak on the record. It remained unclear whether the bullet struck the officer or the dog first . . . The officer is expected to survive.”
Yes, yes. The shooter stays on the public payroll. The shootee gets disability pay for the rest of his natural life (or a big payout from the city).
What about the dog? No word. Figures.
