I dont think the shrapnel thing is odd at all. Maybe its a poor use for the term, but not odd.
Chances are, if the officer was shooting at a dog, he was shooting downward. If the bullet struck concrete, there certainly would have been debris flying. It is also very possible that the jacket fragmented off the bullet with a bit of velocity.
Now I didnt watch the video, but thats just my guess.

I apologize to moderator and to Big Arn for my comments. I have been thru scenarios where pit bulls have ravaged people and I still see unleashed animals in the street--I have no sympathies for the people and intend to protect myself first and foremost from the animals WHEN THEY ARE UNLEASHED AND OUT ON A PUBLIC STREET. If they are unleashed within confined private property that is the owner's responsibility and the confines better be adequate. If not and the animal is able to defeat the confines, all bets are off if he comes at me aggressively. This type of subject is upsetting to me and I apologize for my comments, which obviously upset the moderator.

Thanks Sixto, I see your point there, I guess my words could have been more towards I doubt very highly that they were hit by anything, especially if the owner thinks it's alright for his dog to come after an LEO, maybe he can get some money out of this by saying he was hit by fragments of this LEOs bullets hitting something or the bullets themselves. Especially if the LEO pulled his weapon, most people move away from it's intended path. Just my thoughts on it and the distance, the video didn't work for me, so I'm going off the stroy only.

Make that clear next time. I'm not a mind reader.

Yeah, pit bulls are such wonderful dogs. There is a story like this just about every single day in the USA:

Baby mauled by two pit bulls
Published: April 8, 2010 at 8:05 PM
MURRIETTA, Calif., April 8 (UPI) -- A 6-month-old baby was mauled by two pit bulls as he sat strapped in a carrier in an apartment his mother was visiting in California.
The dogs bit the boy in the scrotum, removing his testicles
, the Riverside (Calif.) Press-Enterprise reported. Murrieta, Calif., Police Sgt. Bob Landwehr said the dogs -- a 5-year-old pit bull and an 8-month old pit bull mix, both females -- first ripped off the infant's diaper.
The mother, Carrie McKinney, 22, of Point Loma was visiting the owner of the dogs, Doug Ritchey, Saturday, police said. She allegedly left her son in his carrier on the floor in a room with the dogs.
Ritchey agreed to allow the dogs to be euthanized. They were being held at a shelter run by Animal Friends of the Valleys, which contracts to provide animal control for Murrieta.
Willa Bagwell, director of Animal Friends, said the baby's injuries are the most serious she has heard of to an infant in more than 20 years with the group.
No charges have been brought against the mother or Ritchey yet, Landwehr said.

Okay its closed, if you want to argue about dog breeds go to a different forum
