Graphic Video Shows Minneapolis Cop Shooting Two Dogs In Yard

Jennifer LeMay cried over the shooting of her service dogs by a Minneapolis cop.

The Facebook video is highly disturbing. It shows a Minneapolis police officer intentionally shooting two dogs in a yard, and neither appear to be charging the cop.

The owner of the two dogs, Jennifer LeMay, is facing thousands of dollars in bills for vet care and surgery because of the gunshot wounds to her pets. Obviously distraught, LeMay uploaded a security video of her beloved dogs being systematically shot by a Minneapolis police officer. Neither dog looked to be a threat to the cop. Instead, they appeared to wagging their tails and greeting the Minneapolis police officer – who was in the dogs’ yard.

*This video is graphic and shows a police officer shooting two dogs. It may not be suitable for all viewers.

On the video, a uniformed Minneapolis police officer is clearly seen in the fenced backyard of a home in north Minneapolis. The police department’s statement said what the cop was in LeMay’s yard because he was responding to an “audible residential burglary alarm;” which had been canceled according to The New York Daily News. The police also stated that the investigation is “ongoing.” The two dogs come out to see what was going on and the security camera clearly picks up the officer shooting one non-threatening dog, then the other.

The family didn’t instantly take the dogs to the emergency vet because police told the family that “animal control” would be there in minutes to access the dogs’ medical needs. But no one showed up to help the shot animals, LeMay said.

As of Sunday afternoon, both dogs were alive but their owner still wants answers. LeMay and her four children own the dogs, named Ciroc and Rocko. Both are Staffordshire Terriers that the family has had since they were puppies. The dogs are physician-prescribed emotional support animals for LeMay’s two sons, who suffer from severe anxiety. According to their owner, Ciroc helps maintain emotional regulation and alleviate anxiety while Rocco is trained to identify seizures for LeMay’s children. “I told the sergeant I would’ve rather he shoot me than my dogs,” LeMay said Sunday. “These just aren’t our dogs, they’re family members.”

Police spokesman Corey Schmidt sent a one-paragraph statement about the incident:

“We are aware of the recent incident involving MPD officers responding to an audible residential burglary alarm and while at this call an MPD officer discharged their firearm, striking two dogs belonging to the homeowner. Anytime an officer discharges their firearm in the line of duty there is an investigation. We are in the process of reviewing the video posted online, as well as the officer’s body camera video.”

But that uncaring and lazy statement didn’t keep both dogs from needing extensive veterinary care.


Ciroc is recovering from the gunshot wound he took to the face.

LeMay is hoping her dogs recover both physically and mentally. Although the pain will eventually subside, the dogs may forever be traumatized by the bullet wounds they received, and may never be the same.

It’s past time to giving cops the benefit of the doubt simply because they wear a badge. Our thoughts go out to Jennifer LeMay and the animals who suffered at that hands of a police officer “just doing his job.”

    Thank You, Dawn. I will never call you ‘Loogie’ again. If anything is ever deserving, it’s THIS PIG that needs the good ol’ ‘eye for an eye’ treatment. Only he won’t survive. Fry in HELL, motherfucker. Better yet, KILL YOURSELF NOW. Save us the bullets&trouble, you less than worthless assfuck.

    • anonymous4u4me

      I gave you an up vote but wish I could have understood how you really feel lol

      • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

        Yeah, you’re right. I WAS a bit soft on, as Rev. Draco calls him/them on here, the low-IQ donut grazer. But trust me, you don’t wanna know how I REALLY feel……neither do I, sometimes. Thanx for the vote, btw. I reciprocated in kind.

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          If I’d posted how I really feel – Disqus would’ve imploded into a singularity.

  • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

    I believe in karma-and SO many of these trigger happy cops have it coming. I only wish we could witness it more often.

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      If all goes well. . . we’ll get to witness it much more often.

  • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    My dogs = dead pig.

    This should happen every time a low-IQ donut grazer shoots or kills pets, which most people consider family.

    No mercy.

    • NonYo Business

      I knew you would be saying this. lol Made my monday.

      • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

        The best dog I ever had was an American Staffordshire – smarter than most people, loyal, friendly (except for his distaste for drunk Mexicans). . . anyone – anyone – who shot him would’ve been discovered in a dozen dumpsters spread over 3 counties. . . if they were ever found at all.

        Same if it were any other member of my family.

        • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

          My very earliest memories are of “Uncle Spike”, my grandparents’ American Staffordshire. He was my guardian, my favorite pulltoy (his ears, if I remember correctly), my transpo around the living room, my everything, back when. He had endless patience with me, and according to my parents, never once got upset or pissy w/ me for playing rough. His patience didn’t extend to adults that didn’t live there, tho……

        • Right to the Point

          “The best dog I ever had was an American Staffordshire – smarter than most people, loyal, friendly”
          Me too, only dog I have seen that loves all people, and can make friends with wild animals as well. Hell, the ducks and geese let him fall into formation when they swim in the river.

    • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

      You got my upvote with “low-IQ donut grazer”!

      • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

        I’d hoped someone would get a kick out of that one =P

    • Of course, a dead pig turns into an executed murderer, by an extension of the same math. I’d have shot him while he climbed the fence like a common burglar.

      • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

        I’d have had to be satisfied with running 3 feet of steel through his guts, in that case.

        • Reminds me of a coroner’s photo of a man murdered by having a piece of rebar shoved up his rectum until blood came out, after which he bled out that way.

  • Time Will Tell

    Can’t say I wouldn’t have put that POS on the ground. I usually back the blue. But there is no way I can back a thug behind a badge.

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      The thugs with badges give the other 5% a bad name, poor thugs.

  • stone cruiser

    Was this cop a muslim? Or just a cowardly piece of shit who picked law enforcement because of hiring quotas?

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      B. When those are the questions, it’s virtually always B.

      • g.johnon

        or C, joined the force for a chance to legally kill.

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          If that had been one of the options, I would have picked that one, for sure.

  • Roy Hobs

    That would be my one way ticket to jail. No one who shoots at my dogs is walking off my property standing.

    • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

      Amen, Roy. My sentiments exactly.

  • James

    Thank all her children did not run outside. Be dead for sure. Little brat had

  • TrevorD

    “These just aren’t our dogs, they’re family members.”
    Many of us who love dogs and animals in general are somewhat adverse to most modern humans. Wonder why?, maybe a dog can`t fake its love and loyalty and more importantly doesn`t game play, manipulate and spout nonsense 24/7.

  • g.johnon

    so where are all the killer cop lovers? cant wait to hear you assholes defend this one.

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      Afraid For My Life!™”

    • Ratcraft

      I could give a shit less. It’s s a dog. If I was a cop and some pit bull comes at me he’s done. Sorry.

      • g.johnon

        well you certainly are sorry. “some pit bull” dog racism. “ever came at me” even wagging its tail and edging toward you sideways?

        a dim view of animals such as yours is generally a sound indicator of low self esteem, and often marks a full fledged sociopath.

        if i had the opportunity to save either you or just some pitbull from drowning; and could only save one, you would be the one to drown.

      • SP_88

        Even though you are in their yard? When a stranger goes into a yard or a house with dogs, the dogs are going to approach the stranger almost 100% of the time. It’s what dogs do. And it doesn’t give you or anyone else the right to just shoot them.
        You are in their yard. So if you get bit by a dog, tough shit. That’s the risk you take when you go into someone else’s yard unannounced. Don’t like it? Go get another job that doesn’t involve victimizing people every chance you get.
        Fuck the police.

      • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

        Ever think of becoming a cop?

        You’re the exact kind of low-IQ psychopathic cumbubble they’re looking for.

        Everyone who lives in my house are family – 2-legged and 4.
        Shoot any one of them, you’re worm food – as you should be.

        • Ratcraft

          Oh shut up jack ass.

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            Projecting your personality flaws again, I see.

            I must thank you, though, for proving yourself to be a low-IQ psychopathic cumbubble. . . I’m happy to say that it’s no longer an assumption.

          • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

            The proof is irrefutable.

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            And incontrovertible.

          • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

            Thanx. I always forget that one.

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

  • Right to the Point

    I want to know why that fat fuck needed access to their back yard to assess a neighbors home alarm?

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ


      Because he’s a low-IQ donut grazer – oh, and because fuck you, that’s why.

      • Right to the Point


    • He climbed the fence pretty well for a fat fuck.

      separate your shit dumbass. try to understand the topic at hand.

        He/it is an, obvious, millennial, with the attention span of a gnat, understanding a topic at hand is a new concept to it

  • Mike

    cop needs to be shot.

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ


      • Only once if the shooter is even remotely more competent than the cop.

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          The rest are just for shits and giggles.

  • Freespirit

    Circumstances don’t matter.

    The police were not called by the OWNER, TENANT or an identified Neighbour of the property for a disturbance threatening Bodily harm, which did not appear to exist, and thus said Officer must ask permission to enter, otherwise he/she is TRESPASSING.

    The Dogs had a perfect right to PROTECT the property, simply by their presence or any necessary activity, by them. The OFFICER had no RIGHT nor NEED to injure the Dogs in any way, shape or from, even if the Dog was attacking, for which PEPPER SPRAY would be sufficient, for anyone who is familiar with Dogs, knows.

    The proper procedure in a FREE Republic, where the citizen is the MASTER, not the Police, which UNITED STATES is NOT, any longer, would be for the Officer to remove him or herself SAFELY from the presence of the Dogs and KNOCK on the door, or communicate to the inhabitants, in other available ways, to assess the situation

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      Maybe we need to have mail carriers train the donut-grazers in the proper way to deal with dogs – can’t say that I’ve ever heard of a mail carrier shooting someone’s dog. . .

      • I can’t say that I remember a mail carrier having POST training, let alone a firearm.

    • The officer is legally entitled to be on the property of his employer.

      • Freespirit

        No agreement without FULL DISCLOSURE is valid

        • Tell that to the millions of military members who have been made ignorant traitors by their government.

          • Freespirit

            Damn, things are bad ( or ,looking up?)when I can agree with you 🙂

  • Jimmy B

    That cop, and EVERY SINGLE COP THAT SHOOTS DOGS, should go to prison for 30 years, like a man got for shooting a Police Fido, bent on killing him. If dogs get human treatment when they slap the name “Ossifer” on them, then all dogs are human.

  • endofwatchersbegan1/28/2011

    EYE FOR AND EYE. Pigs eye.

  • anonymous4u4me

    I hope he dies with a couple of bullets shot up his ass.

  • RMS1911

    How is it these self proclaimed heroes get within eyesight of a dog and start blasting but mail carriers and delivery people deal with dogs without a gun or anything else? Those self proclaimed heroes have a taser a collapsible baton
    And pepper spray but they pull a gun. Keep in mind these are some of the same people who want you disarmed when dealing with dangerous people (mostly democrats) but can’t deal with a dog without a gun.

  • What a shame. It is clear to see from the video that the first dog he shot was wagging his tail. He should be permanently removed from the police force.
