Ciroc suffered from a broken jaw and is recovering from the bullet he took to his face.
Remember the video of the Minneapolis police officer shooting two dogs in a yard? Well, police have come out swinging, saying that the dogs “charged” the officer.
Jennifer LeMay, the dogs’ owner, bristled at the suggestion that either dog charged at the officer, whom she identified as Michael Mays. “Video surveillance doesn’t lie,” she said. For those who have not yet seen the surveillance video of the “charging dogs,” it’s being included. Jennifer LeMay uploaded the video to Facebook after the trigger-happy cop shoot her two service dogs while wagging their tails.

On the video, a uniformed Minneapolis police officer can be seen shooting the dogs, who are obviously not charging or a threat to the cop in any way, while the cop is in the dog’s yard. In fact, Ciroc is clearly wagging his tail. Yet, the Minneapolis police department says that cop was justified in the shooting of these animals, and they are willing to pay for some of LeMay’s veterinarian bills.

A police report filed in the shooting of two dogs inside their north Minneapolis yard by an officer says the animals “charged at [the] officer,” an account that appears to widely differ from the resident’s security video of the encounter. Police Chief Janeé Harteau did not criticize the actions of the officer who shot the two dogs, but on Monday said the department “will be implementing mandatory training specifically for officers identifying effective tools and tactical strategies with police and dog encounters.” In a statement, she said the video of the officer shooting the two dogs “was difficult to watch.”
Harteau said her department will help the family with the veterinary bills “to ensure that both dogs are adequately taken care of.” Meaning the cop’s negligence will once again, fall onto the backs of the taxpayers. If the cop was justified in shooting these “charging” dogs, why is the police department offering to help pay? Obviously, someone here is lying and based on the video, it’s the police.
There is a now also a petition titled “Justice for Ciroc and Rocko,” which demands that the cop who shot the dogs be fired immediately. According to the petition, “thankfully, it appears the animals will survive, and donations have poured into a Gofundme account the family set up to help pay for the vet bills.”
