California Deputy Shoots Child while Shooting Family Dog

For at least the second time in less than a year, a law enforcement officer shot a child while trying to shoot the child’s dog.

Fortunately in both cases, neither the child nor the dog died but it does raise make one wonder why are cops so afraid of family dogs, killing them on a regular basis when we never hear about mail carriers, delivery drivers and meter readers killing dogs.

The latest incident took place Tuesday in Southern California when a San Bernardino sheriff’s deputy was responding to a home on a disturbance call, according to the San Bernardino Sun.

The deputy knocked on the door and an 11-year-old opened it. But they claim a German Shepard came charging at the deputy in a “threatening manner,” which could easily mean the dog ran up to the deputy to sniff him as dogs tend to do.

But the deputy feared for his life and pulled out his gun, firing off a round, which struck the dog in its paw and side before ricocheting off the cement and striking the child in the leg.

It is unclear at this time if the incident was captured on bodycam video. The family member who was causing the disturbance had already left when the deputy arrived.

Last December, a Kansas cop was inside a residence when a dog entered the room, making him fear for his life, which was when he pulled out his gun and fired twice, striking a 9-year-old girl in the eye.

It took six months for that video to be released, which you can see here.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
