Remember Cheye Calvo, the mayor of Berwyn Heights, MD, whose home was invaded by a swat team and his two black labradors were shot as they tried to run away?  Or some of the many other dogs that have been killed by police for no good reason?

Well, things are different in Chattanooga.¬† In case you haven’t seen this video about Winston’s battle with a police car, check it out:

Winston: 1
Police car: 0

Here’s what happened in court:

A pit bull mix in Tennessee has been sentenced to obedience training after his dogged attack on a local police car.

Winston didn’t bite anybody, but he mauled a Chattanooga police car in what might have been a confused attempt to take a bite out of crime. The persistent pooch managed to tear off a section of the front bumper and damage the tires.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that a judge ruled that Winston had been a very bad dog. He was sentenced to obedience and canine good citizen classes, and he’ll have to wear a tag that says he is “potentially dangerous.”

Charges against his owner will be dismissed if the classes are completed successfully.

Owner Nancy Emerling said Winston got out of a fenced-in area at a welding shop March 14.

Maybe it’s time to move to Tennessee.
