Talking Cracker, You in Phoenix? And Ya Didn't Even Say "Hi!"

Geez man, i would have bought ya a couple of beers! Or at least help get rid of the bodies.



http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/...dogs/71290138/

Eric Morgan returned home Wednesday hoping that what his neighbor had called to tell him wasn’t true — that a Phoenix police officer had shot and killed his two pit bulls. Instead, he found nothing. His dogs, 5-year-old Charlie and 2-year-old Sasha were gone, and there was no sign that police had visited either. Two fresh, rust-colored stains, one on the driveway and one in the backyard dirt, told him whatever happened earlier probably hadn’t ended well.

“I just broke down,” he said. “Nobody was here, no paperwork. …I was like, surely somebody’s going to contact me.”

A Phoenix police spokesman confirmed that an officer shot at least one dog Wednesday but, on Thursday afternoon, said he couldn’t provide any further details. It was Morgan’s neighbors and landlord Sal Sanabria who helped him piece together the story. Sanabria told TheArizona Republic he was there after the fact: neighbors called to alert him to the gunshots.

He said an officer explained that they were executing a search warrant.
“I just saw the dog laying in front of the house,” Sanabria said. “They said that one of the officers was bitten on the leg, and they had to put the dogs down.”

Morgan said he was unclear on what to do next or where to find his dogs. And he was more confused after attempting to contact Phoenix police.

A friend called the department, who told him to call the Arizona Humane Society. When Morgan called the Humane Society, they told him to call the police. Finally, he said someone gave him the number of a sergeant, who gave him the number of another sergeant.

Morgan said he was instructed not to call that sergeant, who would contact him by Friday.
Morgan said he spent the next several hours searching back alleys but found nothing. After “a few beers” back at home, he took to building a makeshift memorial in his front yard.

“RIP AZ FINEST PITS,” he wrote in stones. “SASHA & CHARLIE.”

By Thursday afternoon, neighbors had gathered around the dirt yard, many adding flowers or candles. Morgan sat on his stoop, smoking a cigarette and staring at the rust-colored stain on his driveway. “This is what he’s been doing since yesterday, sitting there watching this spot,” said neighbor Denise McKinley.

Morgan said he doesn’t want to point the blame or give in to rumors, he just wants to give his dogs a proper burial. “I’m lost, I’m just lost,” he said. “I don’t know why I can’t see my dogs.”

Doesn't say. Saw it on the local news last night. Just said they were "executing a search warrant," but not who or what it was for. You'd think if it was for the guy or his house, they would have come back instead of just shooting his dogs and leaving with the bodies??

But, this IS the perfect story for a THT thread! It's got pit bulls, cops, cops shooting dogs, a grieving dog owner... a little something for everyone to pull out and sharpen their pitch forks.

That ankle nipper easily reaches groin height and can make a tenor out of you.
