    **Officer Richard Broz crawled under a car to get a friendly pit bull out from underneath it…**

    When I read that, a happy ending wasn’t at all what I expected.

      I’m shocked it wasn’t shot on sight just for being a pit…

    How did the officer know the dog was friendly? I would have shot him out from under the car. Much safer that way. Poor Deshon should have kept his big mouth shut and tried to bum a cigarette off one of the cops. :-)
