VIDEO: Cops Sic K9 on 81-Year-Old Grandma They Accused of Robbing Her Own House

Coon Rapids, MN — An 81-year-old grandma was hospitalized last month after she was attacked by a police K9 while cleaning her shed in her own backyard. Police are now claiming that they ‘acted appropriately’ when they unleashed their dog on this innocent woman.

The Free Thought Project reported the incident when it happened in February. Now, the local news station has obtained the dashcam from the incident. It is nothing short of infuriating as the innocent woman is thrown in the back of the car after being bitten by a K9 and treated like a criminal.

Choua Xiong got up early on a Sunday morning last month to clean out her shed in her backyard. She had done nothing wrong and posed no threat, when police, looking for a ‘suspect’, entered her backyard without a warrant and unleashed their K9 on her.

According to police, a neighbor called 9-1-1 after she saw a suspicious person in a black coat in her backyard. The caller said she heard a loud noise outside but couldn’t tell where it came from. As police investigated, they entered Xiong’s yard and saw a person in her shed. That person was Xiong.

Xiong, who is hard of hearing, did not hear the officers calling for her to come out of the shed. According to police, they yelled for the ‘suspect’ to come out of the shed 10-15 times, however, no one emerged — so they unleashed the dog.

Instead of entering the shed to see if it could’ve been a child with headphones on — or an innocent old woman who was hard of hearing — police sent in their K9 to tear apart whoever it was that couldn’t hear their demands to come out.

The officers could’ve simply waited for the ‘suspect’ to come out of the shed as well. However, they chose to rush to violent escalation. From the time police entered Xiong’s back yard to the time they unleashed the K9 was less than 10 minutes. 

“They didn’t see her in the storage. They just see the flashlight. That’s what they told us,” WaamXee Xiong, Xiong’s grandson said. “If you don’t see nothing and you just see some people inside, why did you let your K-9 go in there?”

To add insult to injury, after siccing the K9 on the 81-year-old grandma, they continued to treat her as a suspect. As she is bleeding profusely from the attack, Xiong was then dragged across the yard with so much force and violence that her knees were bruised and her ankle was sprained, according to her family. Part of this was captured on the dashcam which police appear to have edited before handing over.

When reviewing the video, the chief said the officers were ‘helping’ her across the yard. However, according to Xiong’s family, she was, in fact, dragged.

“Social media sort of took on a life of its own. A grandmother got bitten morphed into police dogs–multiple police dogs–mauled her, tore her clothes off, we drug her across the yard, all sorts of horrible things that never happened,” said Chief Wise. “It’s important that the video get out there… and put these rumors to rest.”

“We don’t like that we bit a grandmother,” said Chief Wise. “I don’t like that. We try and avoid those sorts of things.”

After they had captured their ‘suspect’, it took police nearly 30 minutes to realize that Xiong lived at the house. Thankfully, her grandson WaamXee showed up to tell the officer she’d been cleaning her shed. Forty minutes after being viciously attacked by a police dog and assaulted by police, Xiong was finally brought the hospital.

When news of the story was posted on social media, naturally, the residents of Coon Rapids expressed their outrage. However, the department responded by calling the incident unfortunate but quickly noted that the officers did everything right.

The department understands there is public concern on social media about the way this incident appears at first glance. However, with the facts the officers were dealing with at the time, including dispatch information and assessment of the scene, they responded to the incident in an appropriate manner. Officers are trained to speak clear, simple commands in the hopes that officers can be understood when they are dealing with people on calls. It is always our goal to have a safe outcome for all citizens and officers, no matter the circumstances….

The Coon Rapids Police Department takes reports of suspicious activity very seriously and appreciates the public’s help in alerting officers to suspicious situations. In this case, officers responded to the suspicious person report that occurred at a time of day and under circumstances that led officers to believe they were interrupting a burglary in progress. In this context, officers acted appropriately. Witness reports state K-9 warnings and yelling could be heard loudly in the area as several neighbors woke up to the noise and began turning lights on.

No officers have been disciplined in this case.

    What’s unfortunate is that you have this crusader perusing the internet for non-news items to incite hate instead of doing constructive work. Find a niche, exploit it for your own financial gain, and call it journalism.

    • Guy

      I agree to a point ! Because this is the type of story that makes people stop and read it ! But on the other hand, it does show and prove that cops in general, are about at the level of a trained monkey without a dog and with one, are twice as bad and twice as dumb, while relying on their K-9 Attack Dog to do the work for them ! Then on top of it all, for the Police Chief to state that this is all about Officer safety and community protection, while not even trying to own the fact, that they fucked up ! Just makes me wonder how people manage to keep their jobs, as it were, if you or I had been involved as civilians, we would be in jail now, rather than they, who can quote chapter and verse, and just shrug it off as Normal Procedures !

      Had this been my Grandma, these cops would have to keep one eye open at night, because they would know they would have a big friggin target on their backs !

      • doucyet

        Why on their backs?

        • Ed

          Because they would be running away! Fair game!

          • Hugh Culliton

            Yeah, my comment was stupid.

          • doucyet

            Not stupid at all. Simply spontaneous which is what the writer goes for. That and emotion instead of thought.

          • billdeserthills

            Your comment makes perfect sense,
            the problem is you made the comment to an idiot cop

          • Hugh Culliton

            ;-D

        • WATCH THE VIDEO…LOOK at the WOUND on her arm. And this ws your favorite right-wing “news” source: local FOX affilaite

          • doucyet

            I did and I read the article too!

    • billdeserthills

      What is unfortunate is that you are a POS cop
      and you feel a duty to look like a cop apologist stupid cunt
      We don’t need you to make excuses for the largest criminal gang in America

      • doucyet

        No excuses, it just is what it is……….

        • billdeserthills

          Have you considered that if our police were able to control themselves you wouldn’t feel a need to make excuses for their unbecoming behavior?

          • doucyet

            Have you considered that if you weren’t being led like sheep to anger and armchair judgements about situations you no nothing about other than what a sensationalist writer was feeding you……..that you may be more discerning?

          • billdeserthills

            Since I find that anytime police have fucked up and committed human atrocities to be a major fail–moreso when the police do it again and again, I will say no.

            Perhaps you could get fulfilling and gainful employment working for some of the smaller gangs, seems like MS-13 in Chicago could use someone to make excuses and apologies for their crummy behavior as well

          • doucyet

            “Human atrocities”, you are a joke! Another half wit comment by Bill in his RV.

          • billdeserthills

            I bet you can’t wait to bust some heads in for yourself
            I’m glad I don’t need to rough up innocent folks in order to make a living

          • EliWebber

            well doucyet what i see is an innocent person being mauled by Police ,any story can be sensationalized by emotion what ever .but sometimes these issues need to be addressed and not swept under the rug by the system. it seems a large % of cases like this its, always claimed that proper police policy is followed . but sometimes people will ask the big question where is common sense used . Do we have a police force in this country that shoots first and then ask questions later,or do we have a police force that uses their brain instead of deadly force..Is it a Question of just the cop going home safe or is it they do the job they signed on for ..If they are not taught that their job has certain risk involved , or they are being taught we are all criminals .and they are the only self righteous people . we have a problem with a lack of common sense and compassion for the people, in this supposedly free country .People being abused for killed by police for petty B.S. needs to be addressed .Just a thought if someday you where confronted with an abusing cop who pulled you over for a bad plate light ect. Just the thought that you could be killed for this petty B.S. would you have an issue with Police in gen. . or Just that one cop. Its obvious the justice system needs an over haul .

          • EliWebber

            I wonder why Police have to have a P.R. Dept. or the Chief acts like a P.R. man .they fucked up why can’t they just admit it . or are they just robots for the state ,and that’s just the agenda protect cops who fuck up no matter what the cost , in human misery they cause. then the outcome is decided by and internal investigation by the same people in that system. how can that be Governed by consent . system needs an overhaul.

    • The Cat’s Vagina

      Fuck you. For the most part, you’re becoming a degenerate piece of shit troll with NOTHING to contribute but sniveling “reviews” and justifications for police brutality. Wipe some of that bootblack off your tongue!

      • doucyet

        Thank you Cat! Your written skills are only surpassed by your vocabulary.

        • The Cat’s Vagina

          I have writing skills, not written ones.

          • doucyet

            Cool!

          • billdeserthills

            You do know that douche-ette is a cop, right?
            That is why he sticks up for the largest criminal gang in existance

    • shimbaru

      Douche bag: Please, answer the question: if someone did that to your granma, would you be happy?

      • doucyet

        Happy…….are you stupid! I would look at the circumstances with a clear mind and draw my conclusions from the evidence. You see, this writers job is to stir emotions based on sensationalized writing, not based on facts and circumstances. And many simpletons fall for it.

        • BS when cops mistreat my fellow white people, they are OUTRAGED at the injustice of it. I wouldn’t wish this on your grandma–but, I’d sure wish it on YOU. Then
          M A Y B E YOU’D GET A CLUE. Gues you think living ina Police State is a good thing

          • doucyet

            Bla bla, bla, bla bla.

          • billdeserthills

            Gonna hafta do better than this if you ever wanna become a real cop apologist, copsucker

          • doucyet

            Half wit.

          • billdeserthills

            Ya know why cops only have each other for friendship?
            I bet you do

          • shimbaru

            With cops for friends, who needs enemies?

        • shimbaru

          The facts are pretty straightforward; innocent 80 yo Granma bitten by police dog. I commend the journalists for bringing this outrage to the public eye, will be sharing it with my 4,00 Facebook Friends, and will keep a lookout for similar stories. I hope the aggrieved family collects a bundle from the police in a civil case. Maybe if they had to pay from their own pockets they might be a little more careful in future.

          • doucyet

            “Pretty straightforward”, that clears it up! The story of the 81 year old grandmother should be shared with all 4,00 of your Fakebook “friends”.

          • shimbaru

            Thanks, I stand corrected! What the hell does it matter to that poor woman’s case if I was off by a year? If you had any heart at all you would show some compassion for this inoffensive senior, who was mauled and brutalized by the police, on her own property. Drop your sycophant routine and join the human race.

          • doucyet

            Compassion, of course you feel bad for the lady……….it was a bad situation. Since just about everyone here throws out the “would if”……..would if the “suspect” in the shed was a shotgun toting cop killer? The situation called for the actions performed by the cops.

          • shimbaru

            I don’t deal in hypotheticals, This situation most certainly did not call for that type of response, as other options were obviously available. I see the main problem as a police mentality that treats everybody as a potential cop killer and reacts disproportionately to a non-existent threat. A little more common decency and concern for civilian life is expected from our law enforcement.

          • doucyet

            “I don’t deal in hypotheticals”. You deal in reality either. So tell me what were the other options available for this situation? Hypothetically.

          • shimbaru

            I concede to your ignorance. Please do not make any further replies on my account.

          • doucyet

            And I Sir accept your brainwashed state. I will not make any further comments on your account (unless you solicit one).

    • THIS WAS A TRUE EVENT. Move along..WHAT IF IT Was YOUR GRANDMA THAT WAS ASSAULTED? or is it OK for cops to assault innocent people as long as they are NOT WHITE?

      • doucyet

        A true event! Quit it………I missed that part.

    • Hugh Culliton

      Why do you consider this to be a “non-news event”? What would you consider to be more “constructive work”?

      • doucyet

        Because Matt is using articles like this to rile up non-thinkers and it works!

        He could be an advocate for change instead and instructing people on how to do that (with all his insight) but that doesn’t get clicks. That would be constructive.

        He on the other hand is the guy that sets fire to the first car in the protest and turns it into a riot.

        • billdeserthills

          Right, because the fact that police abuse their charges each and everyday isn’t ‘news’ to a cop apologist such as yourself, huh??

        • Ed

          Yes, Hugh Culliton it riled you up enough to make an ass of yourself!

          • doucyet

            Riled! Hardly. Simpletons such as yourself get riled when they read sheeple pieces.

        • Hugh Culliton

          While I agree that his writing is very critical of police, he makes his perspective quite clear and does support his opinions with facts. As well, I’ve not read anything he’s said that is an incitement to violence.

          I don’t agree with everything Matt says either – sometimes FTP does get too close to yellow journalism. However, the site does bring to light events and issues that are certainly in the public’s best interest to know.

          BTW: Thanks for a serious reply. I was bracing for a lousy comment similar to the insipid one I sent you this morning. I apologize for that.

          • doucyet

            You’re welcome. And thank you for being a free thinker.

            And not a FTP puppet……….

      You’re either a worthless fascist pig or a worthless boot licker, either way this isn’t the place for you. Do humanity a favor and eat a bullet.

      • doucyet

        You’re either a puss………or a pussy! A few more comments from ya and I’ll know the difference.

        • The Fuck You Looking At

          I’m not a pig siccing a dog on an 82 year old grandma because I’m pissing my pants, so no I’m not a pussy. Just admit that you’re a fascist, you support state violence against the people, don’t be a pussy all your life.

          • doucyet

            Yea, I’m sure when they rolled up they said, there’s an 81 year old grandma let’s sic the dog on her! Dumb ass……not only are you a puss, your a stupid puss!

          • The Fuck You Looking At

            No, they said we don’t know who is in that shed and rather than doing our job we’re going to be cowards and blindly sic a viscous attack dog on someone that we’re not even sure is committing a crime.

            Keep licking those boots and sucking cop dick like a good little obedient sheep, hopefully they kick your teeth in very soon.

          • doucyet

            No, what they said was come out with your hands up, but since they were being ignored by the reported burglar, they sent the dog in. To bad the lady doesn’t speak English. Sucks being a foreigner and having stupid neighbors.

            All of this is in the article, can’t you read?

          • The Fuck You Looking At

            You don’t get to use potentially deadly force against someone who you don’t know is committing a crime because they don’t follow commands. Force is to be used only when the life of an officer or civilian is in direct danger. What if someone is deaf? What if someone is wearing headphones? What if they don’t speak English? If you are such a coward that you need to use force before confirming a crime is being committed don’t become a cop, go work at the library. Keep polishing those boots with your tongue sheep.

          • doucyet

            What if you earned the right to write the law and or procedures……….oh yea, you didn’t. So I guess they follow the current procedures and you have to deal with it until new ones are written. Would if your mommy was to call you because your lunch is ready, could you take a break now?

          • The Fuck You Looking At

            lol when you lose every point you’re trying to make you revert back to “it’s the law.” Slavery was the law, casual killing act was the law, the holocaust was the law, Jim Crow was the law, Chinese exclusionary act was the law, Japanese internment was the law, mandatory minimum is the law, civil forfeiture is the law, fuck the law. And you can’t even say definitively that these pigs didn’t break the law, only that these tyrants have investigated themselves and determined that they did nothing wrong. Let’s just shoot anyone who doesn’t immediately comply with polic orders whether or not they break the law, sounds great.

            Keep trying to defend indefensible cowards boot licker. I always find it curious that right-wingers like yourself are always screaming about tyranny and big government intrusion, but then you support police committing the worst big government tyranny in our country today. Cognitive dissonance is a motherfucker.

          • doucyet

            You’re one smart cookie! The law is what it is no matter what country or span of time you live in. Did you figure that out all on your own? Tyranny, your cute. The police are committing no such thing, perhaps you need to look up the meaning of the word. Cognitive dissonance is a motherfucker, and you suffer from it big time.

          • The Fuck You Looking At

            Guess you made the point yourself , they didn’t know what was in the shed . So you along with them it seems got all hyped up and gung ho let the dog lose .without knowing who was in the shed . So who was working more from emotions. fear for one.
            then after seeing it was an old women , How did they react still more violence , seems you and these cops work on that basis .violence is the answer because your the only one that deserves to go home safe .If your a cop would hate to have you and these other cops in my community .And way to self righteous to be of any safety to anyone ..

    And we all know what would have happened if she was armed and shot this dog attacking her in her own shed. She didn’t know this was a police dog, she just knew it was a dog hurting her. Had she protected herself she would have ended up losing her life. When in doubt send in the dog no matter what the circumstances.

    • Gordon Klock

      Wouldn’t necessarily need to shoot it, all she has to do is anything that would physically stop the dog, in order to receive a serious beat down, &/or possibly lose her life, to a taser, &/or hail of bullets….
      & we all know, they kill civilian dogs all the time….(gee, no disparity here,)…..

    “We don’t like that we bit a grandmother,” said Chief Wise. “I don’t like that. We try and avoid those sorts of things.”

    “WE” didn’t bite her. Your uncontrollable WEAPON bit her. You useless waste of oxygen!

  • ToDumb

    Cops should have shined their flashlights on to the shed But as usual they cower in Fear like the pussies the are!

  • Notice how SMALL this 81 year old grandmother is. They ASSUME in every incident that WE THE PEOPLE are criminals–cops are now lke an OCCUPYING ARMY. Could this be that too many MILITARY VETERANS have been hired? The ri MOST ‘basic training” for policing having been done in Iraq & Afghanistan?
