Dear Chief Metz,
An Aurora police officer allegedly shot a dog in the face, leading to the dog’s death. The officer’s body camera reportedly recorded him joking about shooting and killing the dog. We demand that this officer be reprimanded for his alleged unprofessional behavior.
“It just angers me the way (the officers) talked about (the dog); the way they joked about him; the way he ran off in pain screaming.” stated Valeria Rios, the dog’s owner. “And he was just wagging his tail at them the whole time he was shot.” The officer was called to the scene following reports of two unleashed dogs attacking someone.
Aggressive or not, this dog did not deserve to be treated like a joke. We demand that this officer be reprimanded for this alleged unprofessional behavior.
[Your Name Here]
