Cop shoots and kills Delaware man’s dog — as it runs away from him
Smyrna, DE — Heavily militarized officers from the Delaware State Police and the Smyrna Police Department were allegedly executing a search warrant Friday night when they burst into the home of Mark Reedy.
The raid was captured on Reedy’s in-home security camera and the video was uploaded to Facebook over the weekend.
As the video begins, we can see the dog run up to the door barking and wagging his tail.
“State police, search warrant!” yell the cops behind their body-length military shield.
As the dog sees the shield and the gun he becomes startled and runs away. When the dog runs out of frame, it is clear that he posed no threat to the ten men in full body armor.
One cop can be heard saying, “less lethal up,” in a likely attempt to prevent his fellow officers from killing the innocent animal. However, at least one cowardly officer couldn’t wait to pull the trigger with real bullets, and a few seconds later a gunshot rings out and the dog is dead.
Reedy was not home at the time of the raid and when he returned, he found a horrific scene. Police had taken the body of his dog, left the blood puddle, and cut holes in the walls in a likely attempt to recover the bullet fragments that could be used against them in criminal proceedings.
Reedy then discovered that officers tried to break into his gun safe using his screwdrivers.
“I want to know who the genius was that came up with the plan to break into a gun safe with a screwdriver. Not the sharpest tool in the shed,” said Reedy describing the downright futile decision to breach a Champion gun safe with a flat tip screwdriver.

In a series of posts to his Facebook page, Mark Reedy described how Delaware police entered his home twice – the first time without a warrant. According to Reedy, the first search occurred 11/19/15 when he was not at home. Delaware State Police called Reedy to schedule an interview, and shortly after ending the call with police, Reedy received a notification from his home security company that an un-authorized person had entered his house.
Reedy’s whereabouts are currently unknown as he did not immediately respond to our request for comment, nor have we heard from the Deleware state police.
Below is the disturbing video showing the cowardly actions of Delaware’s finest. Please share this story to show the dastardly lows to which police in America will stoop as they “fear for their safety.”
After the shooting Reedy posted the following video on his Facebook page, voicing his disgust.
