Is this a case of fratricide?

The Cullman Times is reporting that police gunned down a wild, huge, sharp-tusked, aggressive boar hog near Cullman High School.

Problem wasn't any of those things. According to the picture of said beast was a small, relatively harmless pot bellied pig. I have one that looks almost identical. He likes to get his belly and legs scratched.

What is truly telling about the way police reported this incident is that it is the exact way they report about the people they arrest. They blow shit up to the Nth degree, demonize the suspect, etc....and this was a pig...who could not come back later and challenge their story.....and they still lied and blew things way out of proportion.

I think this is a clear case of fratricide...and if they barbecue him and eat him then it will be cannibalism.

Then again...that's not really fair to the pig. In fact, it is an insult to pigs, which are smart animals and make great pets, to be placed in the same category with cops.

Poor piggy! They really didn't have to kill him.
