In Columbia, Missouri, voters backed a pair of measures seeking to liberalize local pot laws. Approximately 70 percent of voters approved The Missouri Medical Marijuana Initiative (Proposition 1), which amends the Columbia city criminal code so that "adults who obtain and use marijuana and/or marijuana paraphernalia for medical purposes pursuant to the recommendation of a physician shall not be subject to any arrest, prosecution, punishment, or sanction."
Six out of ten Columbia voters also approved The Missouri Smart Sentencing Initiative (Proposition 2), which amends the city criminal code to depenalize the possession of marijuana and/or paraphernalia to a fine-only offense.

Now... if you chose to live in society you have to live by its rules, and if something its illegal, its illegal.

Amazing all you people pretending to be upset about the dogs, when it is the drugs your clearly defending.
Whether you like it or not, drugs are illegal and having drugs in a house with children is child abuse.
That also did not look like they had any money to be spending on drugs when they have children to be responsible for. How many potheads do you suppose have education accounts for their kids or futures for that matter. I know, I used to be that dumb. I grew up.
When you knowingly engage in criminal activity and even worse do it in your home with your children, whatever occurs is ultimately your fault.
Add to this you can not ever get a good job and you add another level of stupidity. Give up your whole future to get high. When you are willing to give up all you give up to be a user, its not harmless. Putting your children at risk and destroying any chance of a good future is just not smart.
You guys go on pretending the rants here are about the dogs. The truth is obvious.
You can also pretend that drug houses keep Pit Bulls because they make good pets. You might fool the naive but your not going to fool an ex-Junkie like me. I paid dearly for my stupidity. The Pit Bulls are to defend against Cops and most druggies who keep them, abuse them to make them mean. I've seen it far to many times and just because it was more than 25 years ago does not mean that anything has changed since my bad old days.
There is nothing worse than lying to yourselves. I worry some of you are doing drugs around your children. Got any money in their education accounts? Ever had a good job that requires drug testing? No? How you gonna take care of your children if you can't pass a drug test to get a real job? Those are the realities.
Pretending you care about the dogs
You're a moron, the dog was caged. the dog wasn't running free in the house or yard where it could have been a threat.

Don't be mad at the Cops , for doing their job... Be mad at the guys buddy that dime'd him out. It's obvious they got bad intel from a CI. You don't know what sort of intel was passed , you don't know if the guy is alone , if he has weapons , if has has buddies with weapons. when you make entry into a house the last thing on your mind is the welfare of the family pet. Once It's cleared , THEN you can worry about those things. I know PLENTY of guys that had to put dogs down because , douchebag drug dealers keep them in the house ,you know why they're there?... so when you make entry THEY BITE YOU!!!!
So I guess the guy that's dealing out of his house with his kids there isn't at fault huh?... And you even call for someone to get fired?!? C'mon!...lol
It's really simple , unless you have X-Ray vision , YOU DON'T KNOW what's in a house before you enter it , and things happen REALLY fast. It sucks that the guys dog got double tapped but sometimes $*** happens.
