Columbia SWAT under fire for shooting dogs

In Columbia, police are getting death threats over a February drug raid where SWAT team members shot a suspect's dogs, killing one of them. The man's wife and child were in the home, too. The Columbia Tribune broke the story. The department's police chief is defending the officers, saying the pit bull was acting aggressively. The other dog is a corgi and lived. The chief notes they're reviewing their policies on raids because of the raid.

WARNING: The above video has some profanity as well as the sound of the injured dog crying out.

The suspect, BTW, has taken a plea deal, copping to possession of drug paraphernalia so that two other charges will be dropped.

Hat Tip: Many thanks, dms!
