A Kansas cop shot and killed the service dog of an army veteran who suffers from PTSD on Thursday, according to the Daily Haze.

Augusta police officer Devon Keith says he was forced to shoot Alan Fitzgerald’s dog “Midnite” claiming the dog charged an animal control officer after ramming a door until it opened – making the animal control officer fear for his life.

But Fitzgerald said his dog didn’t do anything wrong and officer Keith shot him for no reason.

Neighbors who witnessed the shooting said the animal control officer was the one who opened the door and began acting aggressively towards the dog before shooting it.

Augusta police, along with animal control, showed up at Fitzgerald’s house Thursday afternoon after a neighbor called to complain about a German Shepard.

Fitzgerald said Midnite got out on Thursday, presumably chasing rabbits and cats as he often did. Midnite ended up several mobile homes down from his home, hovering over a neighbor’s small dog.

“It’s how he plays,” Fitzgerald explained.

Fitzgerald talked to the small dog’s owner, who said the smaller dog wasn’t hurt, just “shaken up” from Midnite towering over it.

Things settled and Fitzgerald returned home and was in the shower when he heard Midnite bark and then gunshots.

“All of a sudden, I heard this pound pound pound on the screen door,” Fitzgerald recalled.

“And I heard Midnite barking, obviously he’s going to bark because he’s guarding the house. All of a sudden then I heard shots fired and I heard my dog screaming in agony.”

Fitzgerald came out to see what was going on only to have a gun pointed at him inside of his own house.

“I got halfway out the door, and about right here where this crack is, there’s an officer standing with his gun pointed at me. I said ‘what are you guys doing here, why did you kill my dog?’ he said, ‘Get on the ground’, I said, ‘I’m not gonna get on the ground so I went inside and slammed the door,” he told KSN.

August Police Chief Tyler Brewer defended officer Keith.

“The animal control officer felt in fear for his life,” the chief said.

“These officers feel horrible for having to do that.”

According to chief Brewer, when the animal control officer knocked on the door, Midnite answered.

“The front door was open but the glass screen door was shut,” Brewer explained. “The dog rushed and hit the glass of the screen door and startled the animal control officer.”

Officer Keith was forced to shoot Midnite when the animal control officer fell off the porch, hitting his head, trying to bite the officer, according to Brewer.

But Fitzgerald’s neighbor Charmin Drake says the dog got out because the animal control officer actually opened the door, not Midnite, then entered without a warrant and began kicking and even hitting Midnite with a baton.

After beating the dog, officers went outside and shot Midnite. Then they issued Fitzgerald two citations for having a vicious animal.

Fitzgerald rescued Midnight in 2015 and obtained an ADA service dog certificate, which required the dog to pass behavioral tests without showing signs of aggression, and said he had Midnite for his PTSD.

“Whenever I was having some sort of episode of oncoming anxiety, he knew what to do. He’d come up and nudge me or do something silly. He’d turn over on his back and give that little smile, you know, that dogs give. I’m just going to miss all of that.”

Sounds like he was aggressive with that little dog down the street. And maybe with the cop, maybe not.

“The animal control officer felt in fear for his life,” the chief said.

If an animal control officer can't actually control the most common animal species subject to local laws, what good is he?

If he thought the dog was hostile, he should have been prepared to take it into custody. Unless their policy is just to have a cop shoot any dog that makes them nervous.

If they had to open the door to shoot the dog or they shot it through the door, that seems very unsafe and unlawful. It sounds like the dog just ran over and jumped up on the glass door to look them over.

At least two of the killed cops - as opposed to zero, zilch, nada, bupkis cops killed by dogs.

This was a service dog - they are trained to be non-aggressive.

I don’t care what a dog was “trained” to do, I care what a dog did….as you should also.

Passing behavioral tests one day is “suppose” to be an “indication” of what a dog “might do” the next day. However, that test is not, and can never be, an absolute guarantee of what a dog “will do” the next day.

As soon as I saw the source of the article you posted, photographyisnotacrime.com…a warning immediately flashed through my mind to indicate that I am looking at another ad-driven agenda site on the same level as The Free Thought Project. After checking further, I knew that I definitely was.

So you must understand that I cannot give any credence to your source or accept what some “undocumented Journalist” [you like that….I just coined it] named, “Ben Keller, who resides in Austin, Texas [a bastion of liberalism], where much of his activism centers around government accountability. He thinks the public should have more access to court rooms. [What?] He volunteers for Peaceful Streets Project as well as other groups [protests] who shine light on government corruption. He has no degree and only “studied” [attended a few classes in] English Literature and Philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin.”

Hey, Bubba….your Ben Keller is a Matt Agorist [of TFTP] on steroids. Here are just a few of his recent articles. Not only is he prolific, he also has a fetish for capitals….which you cannot help but notice. That definitely indicates to me that he is no journalist.

Do you kinda get the theme of what Ben is all about and what his motives are. If not, then you are more stupid than I ever thought.

According to The Daily Blaze

Multiple neighbors who witnessed the shooting claim to have seen Officer Devon Keith enter Fitzgerald’s home, without permission, at which point he got into a confrontation with Midnite.
Maybe there is a way, but I fail to understand “multiple” how neighbors could have have seen this without being on the front porch with the police officer and the animal control officer. How did that know the Fitzgerald did not call from the back his home for the officers to come in? They did not.
Neither Fitzgerald or his mother were in the front of the residence when the shooting happened. Multiple witnesses say they saw Keith kick Midnite multiple times before finally shooting the German Sheperd.
Fitzgerald and his mother could not possibly have know what happened since they were in the back of the house and saw nothing of the incident.

Sport, there is just not any factual data for me to either condemn or support this action by the officers, and I will be damned and gone to Hell before I would ever “convict” them on hearsay from Ben Keller, who was nowhere near Augusta and simply took a story form the local newspaper and fabricated spin for his own agenda driven hit piece. You of course can do that, convict the officers. Wait, you have already done that. You are complete biased idiot. There has never been an ounce of objectivity in your mind….and there never will be. Pathetic …

More like "playful".

Every dog owner always insists their dog is just being playful or was just "defending" themselves.

Cops don't understand the difference between playful and aggressive.

That's very weak as an argument.

The better question is why the cops shot the dog through the door when it was not posing a threat to anyone. Why couldn't they wait for the owner to get out of the shower, etc.?

An even better question is how do you know the cops shot the dog through the door when it was not posing a threat to anyone?

It was reported in the local newspaper that: “Neither Fitzgerald or his mother were in the front of the residence when the shooting happened.” And it was also reported: “Multiple neighbors who witnessed the shooting claim to have seen Officer Devon Keith enter Fitzgerald’s home, without permission.”

So was the dog inside the house or maybe outside….were the cops inside the house or outside….did the cops shoot the dog through the door….or not.

There is no recorded “history” to prove any such thing….if you can find some, then link to it.

You are simply making a statement based on information you read on ad-driven agenda spin sites such as thefreethoughtproject.com , photographyisnotacrime.com and the likes.

Those, are not sources of history….they are the Internet equivalent to The National Inquirer and you need to realize that.

Either that or they just don't give a rat's ass what or who they kill.
That is a completely irresponsible and totally irrational fabrication for which you have no basis to make such an assertion.

DailyHaze: Augusta Kansas Police shoot and kill Veteran’s service dog “Midnite” then issue him two citations

They include photos of the broken door and the dead dog outside.

Interesting to see more details here that fill out the picture. Without such detailed reporting, we all just fill in details and make assumptions on our own.

Again, thanks for the link. I have been reading a local story, but not nearly this detailed.

The “broken through door” and the “dead dog at the edge of the porch” when added to the police supervisor’s statement that “the dog came flying through the door at the animal control officer”….makes me lean to a justifiable, but terribly unfortunate, shooting.

I do feel sorry for the Vet, it is undoubtedly a terrible loss.

So, I therefore will now write off yet another of Deckard’s foray into his la la world….forever trying to convince folks how terrible cops are.

So now we have two sets of pix showing the screen door. One shows the door broken with a dead dog and blood stains. The other pic is claimed to have been taken within a few hours and the door looks untouched and no blood. Somehow, the "nothing wrong" version doesn't look quite the same as the one with the dead dog, like maybe it was taken at a much different time than just a few hours after the shooting.

Neither Fitzgerald or his mother were in the front of the residence when the shooting happened. Multiple witnesses say they saw Keith kick Midnite multiple times before finally shooting the German Sheperd.

Despite witness accounts, the officer who shot Midnite has been exonerated because he feared for his life. Augusta Public Safety Director Tyler Brewer has been doing everything in his power to make sure the police narrative is what is heard.

The Wichita Eagle released an article so biased towards the police narrative that Brewer might as well written it. It is common for local media outlets to side with police in the area, as they deal with them so frequently. It is something we have witnessed happen time and time again all over the country.

In this case, Brewer’s account of how the shooting played out just does not seem to add up.

Neither Fitzgerald or his mother were in the front of the residence when the shooting happened. Multiple witnesses say they saw Keith kick Midnite multiple times before finally shooting the German Sheperd.

Wait just a minute.

It was reported that multiple neighbors saw Keith enter the house.

Then it was reported that multiple neighbors saw Keith kick the dog multiple times.

Query: How could the multiple neighbors see Keith kicking the dog inside the house?

Only if the multiple neighbors were standing on the porch looking directly inside the house.

Too many reports of too many neighbors seeing too many things …

You yellow journalism article is a fraud….face it.

I fail to understand Deckard, he is a complete idiot.

The Wichita Eagle released an article so biased towards the police narrative that Brewer might as well written it. It is common for local media outlets to side with police in the area, as they deal with them so frequently. It is something we have witnessed happen time and time again all over the country.

ROTFLMAO …

Pot <> Kettle = Black.

As many biased yellow journalism articles you post, that you should call a local newspaper article biased is the absolute ultimate height of hypocrisy.

You are amazing….amazingly ridiculous.

I fail to understand Deckard, he is a complete idiot.

Sounds to me like a bunch of libertarian assholes

Some folks who want to hold a candlelight vigil to show their support for a man whose dog was killed by a sadistic cop - all libertarians?

You need to get some help for your obsession with all things libertarian.

...say “f**k you” to the city...

The city (by exonerating the sadistic cop) has said "fuck you" to the residents there.

There was no investigation, they didn't even talk to any of the witnesses.

As we have seen time and time again, cops can use the magic words "I feared for my life" and be cleared of any crime.

Shoot a 5 pound dachshund? "I feared for my life".

Shoot a kid holding a wii controller? "I feared for my life". Same shit, different day.

Those who most loudly denounce Fake News are typically those most aggressively disseminating it.
