Officer Brice Woolly works for the Ardmore Oklahoma Police Department. He was assigned to investigate complaints of an aggressive dog loose in a public park.
Sarah Brown said her family’s 2-year-old pit bull, Cali, escaped the yard of their Ardmore home Wednesday, and police said neighbors reported the dog running loose.
Police said the dog was wearing a collar but no tags, and animal control officers tried several times unsuccessfully to catch the animal and determine its owner.
A mail carrier had reported in January that he was confronted by a dog that matched Cali’s description, but a neighbor said she knew the owner and took the dog home.
No problems with his actions so far; dogs should be kept in yards or on leashes per local ordinances. An aggressive animal should be controlled as soon as possible. I do question how much effort was made to capture the dog but I wasn’t there and I haven’t been an animal control officer so let’s credit the city employees with a good faith effort.
It’s what Officer Brice Woolly reportedly said afterwards that should get him the appropriate attention.
A neighbor told Brown that she did not see police shoot Cali, but she heard the shot and saw the officers’ reaction.
“Did you see the way its collar flew up into the air when I blew its head off?” Woolly told the animal control officer, according to the neighbor. “It was awesome!”
The neighbor said Woolly also bragged about shooting another dog with his handgun a few days earlier.
Way to stay classy there Officer Brice Woolly.
Found this little gem of a comment over at Sparky’s place

The Jews had over 5,000 guns in the Ghetto. They used them to kill German, but were exterminated by German superior forces. Having guns did not stop their extermination.
He’s right in that it didn’t stop their extermination. My question is “How did not having firearms keep the unarmed Jews from being exterminated?”
For me this is a classic case of proving why the 2nd Amendment has “shall not be infringed” — 200 years before the atrocities; the Founding Fathers foresaw the possibility.

I almost didn’t excerpt this part because the entire post is just that good but this really captures two issues in just a few words
I don’t carry a gun because I walk around scared every day.
I don’t walk around scared every day because I carry a gun!
I don’t understand why the feminist movement has not whole-heartedly embraced and promoted gun ownership for women.
It’s the most “liberating” thing a woman can possibly do to ensure her safety and equality.
Thank You Tamara Flaherty….now if you haven’t already clicked over, I highly suggest you read the entire post.
Joan Peterson “Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence board Member, co-president of the Northland Chapter of the Brady Campaign, President of Minnesota Million Moms March, Spokesperson for Protect Minnesota ; aka Japete” displays something that I’ve seen all too often around the web recently.
In real life, shooters go to schools and shoot at children as young as 7 and as old as college students on a fairly regular basis. In real life, innocent people are shot for wearing a hoodie while walking in a neighborhood, for playing music too loudly, for texting in a movie theater, for egging someone’s car.
For some reason, anti-rights cultists have suddenly woken up and realized that shootings can happen for trivial reasons (Zimmerman excluded despite her claims) — being disrespectful.
This isn’t a new problem. This isn’t a result of changing gun laws. They are showing their opportunistic nature and ‘gun control’ agenda by only highlighting these shootings. For decades; gangs have been shooting and killing each other for being ‘dissed’. For decades drug cartel members fought and killed people if someone slighted them; sold drugs in their territory for example.
America, we have a problem. It’s unimaginable that the daily carnage of gun violence does not ping the collective conscience of our elected leaders.
Gun Control Advocates; you have a problem. You don’t seem to focus on the shootings in Gun Control Paradise aka Chicago; last year they had over 500 homicides; many by firearm many killed due to gang activity. Where is your outrage over that?
Where was your outrage over our country’s capital Washington D.C. being Murder Capital of the country for decades? Funny how shootings seems to have dropped off in the district now, isn’t it?
I find it disgusting that anti-rights cultists like Joan only show concern about “respect” or “courteous” when it is a “white” shooter — even if the media has to invent a new shade of white (White Hispanic) to justify their agenda.

I might cover the embellishment of her ‘life story’ later but for now, this should give another reason to vote for someone else.
She also said Friday that she believes universal background checks are “a good idea.”
Sorry Ms. Davis but I shouldn’t have to get a background check when I inherit firearms from my father or buy a gun from a friend.
This is going to be an on-going series of posts about the shooting of Jerry Waller by Fort Worth Police Officers. While I have my own opinion about the Grand Jury’s decision to no-bill the officer; this isn’t about that. What I’m trying to do is use this horrific incident to raise awareness about various factors and current issues. The report, which I referenced in the other post can be found here.
In this post, I want to discuss the ‘mindset’ of the officer(s) involved.
During his recorded interview, Officer Hoeppner stated that they observed a suspicious vehicle parked on the far back portion of the driveway at 404 Havenwood Lane North. Officer Hoeppner thought that the vehicle could have possibly been intentionally parked at the back of the driveway by an intruder to prevent anyone from seeing them approach the residence.
I’m not exactly sure what makes a car parked in a drive way “suspicious” given that most of the homes in the area seem to have rear (or side) entry garages. Many people have more cars than space in their garages so it is very common to have cars parked on the driveway. We seldom have severe weather that dictates all cars be parked inside.

The driveway extended from the main roadway to a parking area in the back of the residence. The driveway was connected to a rear entry garage that was not visible from the roadway. The officers stated that they decided to approach the back of the residence first because of the suspicious vehicle that was parked on the driveway and the fact that the back of the residence was secluded and more susceptible to have been broken into.
This is information is important because of the security habits of some homeowners. Rear entry garages are often left open; either by accident or by carelessness. Most of the homes have locking doors from the garage into the house proper.
( just saw how long this post was — most of it will be below the fold)
There comes a time when patience runs out and we have to act. Time and time again it happens. After every shooting, after every horrible murder spree; the main stream media and the gun control advocates trot out the tired hackneyed phrase
The shooting at the Mall in Columbia has reignited debate over gun control laws here in Maryland
I rarely approve of burning books but I’ll make exception for the style guide used by 99% of all news outlets. The less said about what I’m willing to do to editors who keep approving articles featuring this line — well the less that can be used against me in a court of law.
Come on PEOPLE. We haven’t stopped having this debate. Either admit that and don’t use it again or Admit you don’t pay attention to your own site.
