Man Settles Suit With Tallahassee Police Over Dog Shooting

Submitted by Tallahassee O

Kyle Marshall’s dog was shot by police in July of 2009 at four in the morning. The police were called by Marshall’s girlfriend after they had a fight.

“They shot my dog right on my front porch and then came into my house,” said Marshall.  “What rights do you have if you can’t stay in your own house,”  he said.

“It was determined their actions were completely justified because they were in fear for their own safety,” said Cassandra Jackson, a spokeswoman for the Tallahassee City Attorney.

As per usual police procedure when they kill dogs or people, they charged  Mr. Marshall, the victim, with 2 counts of aggravated assault. The charges were later dropped, and Mr. Marshall sued. The city settled for $25,000. More here and here.

These are the same officers notoriously known for the death of Rachel Hoffman, a drug informant under their care that ended up murdered, among other acts of misconduct.
