South Florida Cop Shoots Self while trying to Shoot Family Dog Named Bella

A lucky dog’s life was spared when a South Florida cop shot himself as he tried to shoot the dog early Friday morning.

Davie police said the officer was at a home for a non-criminal incident when the family dog came “charging” at the him so he had to resort to his training which is to open fire because that is pretty much a cop’s solution to everything.

But the cop ended up shooting his hand which was in front of the muzzle. The bullet only grazed the dog, a boxer named Bella who remains alive and in the care of her family.

The cop, meanwhile, had to be transported to the hospital with a non-life threatening injury.

According to Local 10:

“When the police officer got to the front door of the residence, the family pet — happens to be a female boxer named Bella — ran right past him and went toward the officer,” Davie police Lt. Mark Leone said. “The officer was in fear, drew his firearm and fired one shot.”

Home surveillance video shows what appears to be the officer walking back and forth from the home.

Moments later, more police cars arrive — lights flashing — and officers run toward the home.

A short time goes by when two officers are seen walking on the sidewalk, one of them grasping his hand.

He gets to the back of a patrol car and appears to start wrapping something around the wound to stop the bleeding, seemingly frustrated.

Several of the officers gathered around shine their flashlights on the wound. An ambulance arrives and the officer gets in the back before it drives away.

Surely there must be an award in store for this cop in the future.

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.
