Justice For Rosie The Newfoundland, Part Two
Des Moines, Washington
2 Year Old Female Newfoundland Shot Dead By Local Police
Latest video: TV interview with the woman who was a witness to Rosie's shooting. http://www.komonews.com/news/local/107599853.html?tab=video
From the eyewitness to this horrific event: "As the witness to this event I will also say that Rosie never moved from her original position, they shot her exactly where she stood peering at me through the bushes. The officers were shooting at a still target in a fully fenced off yard. If I would have known that they were going to gun her down I would have stopped them. They should have told me.I would have let her stay in the yard for as long as needed. I also forgot to mention the officer chuckling as he explained to me that 'they had never had one this big before'. Not ever considering the danger and sadness they put upon my family. It makes me sick to my stomach to think this happened in our community."
