The family of Thomas Russell III has been awarded $300,000 by a federal jury this week for an abusive raid that led to the police shooting the family dog. We have been following a long line of cases where family dogs are shot by police.
The raid occurred on Feb. 27, 2009 when the police raided the South Side home. They allege that the police put shotguns to the heads of young boys and ultimately shot Lady, the family’s black Labrador. No drugs were found in the search.
