A couple in Colorado is suing a police officer who shot their puppy that later had to be euthanised after he initiated an encounter with the pair.

In June 2019, Loveland police officer Matthew Grashorn arrived in an empty car park, where Wendy Love and her husband were letting their three dogs run around and drink water.

Mr Grashorn calls the couple to call their dog off, which they do, and the dog obeys.

One of the couple’s other dogs, a 14-month-old Staffordshire terrier-boxer cross, Herkimer, leapt out of the truck and darted toward the officer.

In the video, the dog drops to the pavement instantly and Ms Love can be seen standing in shock in the moments after the shooting.

The couple is being represented in court by attorney Sarah Schielke, who has sued the Loveland police department twice in the last two years.

The officer has faced no disciplinary action for the shooting and has not responded to the lawsuit. »

They are certainly entitled to keep advocating nation-building, but they have no right to force working Americans to pay the price for their agenda.

They deserve to know their sons and daughters will not be put in harm’s way unless it is absolutely necessary.

Hawley is demanding that Biden resign for enacting a policy that Hawley himself has advanced, repeatedly. »

A judge in Michigan has ordered a couple to pay $30,441 (£22,100) to their son, for throwing out his pornography collection.

Werking said they had no right to throw out his collection of films, magazines and other items, which he said then was worth $29,000 (£21,500). »
