Ogden police lack compassion

I am writing this letter with tears in my eyes. I am the owner of the German shepherd that was killed by the Ogden police (Mar. 5 news story, “Man refutes Ogden police claims in fatal shooting of German shepherd”). After three days, I have yet to get an explanation from them as to why they killed my dog! I finally found my other missing dog after his being on the streets for three days I brought him home. He can barely walk because his paws are so sore from walking for three days.

Now that he is home, he is so grief stricken from the loss of his best friend Max, that all he does is lay on the floor and won’t move! The night of this incident I came home from work to one dog dead one dog missing with the police telling me my husband is going to jail! They would not tell me why they were taking my husband to jail nor why they shot my dog. All they would say was for me to go in the house and not make a scene. Then they didn’t want me to go on front porch to smoke; they told me to go out in my backyard!

What happened to the rights of the innocent? Where is the compassion from the Ogden police department? I’m still shaking my head in disbelief about the whole situation. The victim in all this, besides my family is my poor dog who has lost his best friend! He was left to wander the streets trying to find his way home!
