A mother has filed a formal complaint against a Minnesota police department after her 5-year-old son’s pet chicken was decapitated by the chief.
Atwater Police Chief Trevor Berger said he killed the chicken on Aug. 16th because it violated the city’s ordinancethat prohibits fowls, the West Central Tribune reported.
Though Ashley Turnbull admits she had received warnings at least a week in advance about the ordinance, she said there was no reason to beat her son’s chicken to death with a shovel before decapitating it.
Turnbull said the chicken had been a birthday gift for her son, Phoenix.
“The chicken was like a puppy dog to my son,” Turnbull told the publication. “You wouldn’t do that to a puppy.”
Actually, cops have no problem killing puppies. Again, when positions of power are created in which people can initiate aggressive force with little to no consequence, it is only natural that sociopaths would gravitate to such jobs.
