For Some Neighbors, Not Cleaning Up After Your Dog Is A Murderable Offense

The sad scene played out in Denver in June 2020, The Denver Post reported. Isabella Thallas and partner Darian Simon were passing through the neighborhood of one Michael Close when their dog felt the need to answer the call of nature.

This is, granted, a problematic issue, and the best of us have fallen victim to the dog-poop-in-the-grass-that-we-didn’t-see-until-it-was-too-late disaster. Around the world, fines and other punishments are widely administered to those who don’t clean up after their dogs. In April 2016, per the Guardian, the government of Madrid issued a statement complaining that there was “still excrement in the streets, parks, and other places.” To attempt to tackle this, authorities declared that those who left poop un-scooped could be sentenced to a couple of days’ work cleaning the streets their pet had befouled, or a hefty fine that could reach €1,500 (around $1,550).

Tragically, that day in Denver, Close seemed to take even greater offense to the dog poop near his apartment. The Denver Post went on to report that words were exchanged between the couple and Close before he picked up an AK-47 and opened fire at them both.
