California Cop Shoots Barking Dog but Shrapnel from Bullet Strikes 2 Bystanders

A barking dog startled a cop into pulling out his gun and shooting but missing. However, shrapnel from the bullet struck two bystanders, including the security guard who had called police about a man creating a disturbance as well as the man himself. The dog was also struck by shrapnel.

“You shot me, you shot me in the eye, dude,” says the man who is being manhandled by other officers for creating the alleged disturbance.

The dog which appeared to have been recently adopted survived by running into a Safeway grocery store and hiding under somebody’s legs.

Sacramento police said the dog bit a cop in the arm which is why he called for backup but that is not apparent in the video released by police. Police also said “an aggressive dog physically charged the officer” but that is debatable.

What is shown in the video is the dog calmly sitting on the sidewalk while a cop lays on top of its owner – hardly a guard dog and much less of a threat. The security guard who called the cops is the man standing over them.

The dog stands up with its tail wagging when two more cops come rushing in to partake in the arrest, still oblivious to its owner’s arrest.

It’s not until the security guard kicks the dog behind from its hind legs that it turns around and begins barking at him. The dog even charges at him but the guard backs away and the dog backs off before turning towards the cop and barking.

The cop pulls out his gun and fires.

Jandy Jorgensen was shopping in the Safeway when the dog apparently ran in, covered in blood.

“Very scared, shaking like a leaf, she just ran to the back of the store and hid underneath my legs,” Jorgensen said. “She wasn’t aggressive, she was real sweet.”

Jorgensen said the dog was still wearing tags from the Front Street Animal Shelter, possibly indicating that the dog had been recently adopted. more cops come rushing in which

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.
