See this cute white pit bull, Precious?
If you believe Joe, a homeless Texan who often preached about the Lord in Dupont Circle, she is just a lovable and harmless squirrel chaser.
If you believe the U.S. Park Police, she was aggressively running toward an officer who shot her in apparent self defense.

[Joe] lay in front of the dog’s body, which was covered with a blue blanket, until the Humane Society took the dog away. “She’s gone now, she’s dead, she’s dead,” Joe said, sobbing.
