On the one paw, don't we pay police officers in part for adequate marksmanship?
Officers ______ and ______ responded to the 1300 block of College Avenue on a report of shots being fired. _________said he approached the scene with his weapon drawn and saw the dog running at full speed toward him and _______. He said he shot three times with his handgun, and the dog ran away. It was not hit.
On the other paw, a dog charging head on doesn't present much center mass, so maybe we should give Officer Friendly a pass.
On the third paw, don't we pay journalists for a certain completeness in their reports? There not a syllable of explanation of the "shots being fired" call which led to the Fido confrontation.
That leaves me with one paw to spare. Put 'er there, Pawdner.
