Red Ice Creations: That the dogs were shot is reprehensible. That people were pulled from their beds by intruders (a.k.a police) and detained at gun point, without warrant, is beyond outrageous. It demonstrates that the ’law’ is as fluid for police and lawmakers as they need it to be at the time.

Cops killing family dogs is becoming a deplorable theme lately:

Police climb through innocent family’s bedroom window, shoot their 2 dogs – No warrant, no evidence
From: From The Trenches World Report

An innocent Florida family was terrorized by police who broke into their bedroom at 10:30 PM on Tuesday and opened fire on their pet dogs.

Police were searching the area for a person of interest. Without any evidence or a warrant, they decided to climb into the home of Cristina Moses and her fiance Travis Nicholas, right through a bedroom window.

The couple was awoken to the sound of intruders in their home — at least six of them — and were quickly dragged from their bedroom and into the hallway. Guns were aimed at them and they had boots placed on their backs.

“The cops threw Cristina on the ground, cussing,” Nicholas said. “It was obvious that I’m not armed because I’m in my boxers.”

Then the couple witnessed their two dogs get shot by police. Police claim that an officer was bitten, but the couple says they witnessed it clearly and their story contradicts the officers’.

“I’m in the doorway so I can see into the bedroom, and I see him shooting across the bed … to my dogs that are on the opposite side of a queen-sized bed,” Moses said. “I heard five shots go off. Around the third shot, I hopped up and I went ‘No stop. No.’ And he continued to fire a couple more shots after that,” she said.

Moses was then detained in a patrol car for more than an hour because she “wouldn’t shut up.”

Escambia County deputies shoot family dogs after entering home without warrant
From: Examiner

According to an August 7 report by WTSP, Escambia County police officers entered a Warrington, Florida home on August 2 and shot the two family dogs.

At least half a dozen Escambia police department officers responded to a call at the Flynn Drive residence of Cristina Moses and her fiancé Travis Nicholas because of an incident earlier in the evening.

A man had gotten into a fight with his girlfriend and her father. Wayde Morris had come at the man and his daughter with a machete and a bat. He was arrested on aggravated assault and remains at the Escambia County jail on $10,000 bond.

During the argument, a man in a gray tank top whom witnesses identified as"Travis" came by and began waiving a gun saying

"I will splatter your brains on the sidewalk."

Later that night, at around 10:30 pm, Escambia County officers had followed the trail to the residence. After officers failed to get Cristina and Travis to the door at their Flynn Drive residence, one of the officers saw a bucket under a window while checking the perimeter of the home.

This is how the police decided to use it to gain entry to the home. Police feared the family was in danger and needed to locate the suspect before "Travis" put the family in danger.

According to the sheriffs news release:
"Upon encountering the people in the house, the dogs became aggressive. One dog bit at one of the deputy’s leg. He pushed the dog away, but it came at him again so he shot the dog in self-defense, at which time the second dog began to run towards him. For his personal safety, he shot the second dog."

Gracie, a 13-month old pit bull, had to be euthanized on Monday. A three-year-old bulldog mix named Rocky is recovering at home.

As for Travis being the person witnesses saw, he denies having a gun or being at the scene. The couple tell of how police entered their home and how they were awakened to find six armed officers with flashlights standing over them.

Under the law, officers can enter a house without a search warrant, or under so-called exigent circumstances, only if they think people are in imminent danger, evidence faces immediate destruction or a suspect will escape.

The incident is under investigation by the Escambia County Sheriffs Department and no further details have been made available. As of today, neither Cristina nor Travis have been arrested of any crime.

Under the law, officers can enter a house without a search warrant, or under so-called exigent circumstances, only if they think people are in imminent danger, evidence faces immediate destruction or a suspect will escape.

"There is no ready litmus test for determining whether such circumstances exist, and in each case, the extraordinary situation must be measured by the facts known by officials," according to a California case that lays out parameters for warrantless entry. Source

With Islamic State militants now inside the historic town of Palmyra in Syria, the question, inevitably, is whether they will destroy the ancient ruins. As IS continues to sweep through parts of Iraq and Syria, damage to centuries-old artefacts - because IS sees statues and shrines as idolatrous - is plentiful.
