(Some Guy)   You are a cop responding to a call about a vicious dog. Do you: A) shoot it, B) shoot it twice, or C) give it water to drink, take it to the shelter in your patrol car, and then adopt it?   (modifiedk9.blogspot.com) divider line 274

That's a good story to start the day with. Thanks, subby.

A positive cop story on Fark? Unpossible.

I believe this is could a case of "You're doing it right".

It's that asshole, minority 99% of cops that make the rest of them, like this guy, look bad.

The story didn't mention that the dog ate a school bus full of kids earlier that day.
 
2012-07-17 01:19:57 PM
Subby, you silly bastard, I just tried to submit this too.

Looks like I need me some Total Fark.

Not like i'm going to pay that communist Drew Curtis $5 a month though.

Can you link this? I want to get outraged too, but I guess I missed it while on a cracked-out writing binge preparing my dissertation.
 
2012-07-17 01:22:37 PM
And a Baltimore cop, no less.

I wonder what'll happen to the poor guy? The cop, I mean.
 
2012-07-17 01:22:39 PM
I'm calling shenanigans on this story too. There's no way fark would post a positive cop story. All cops are bullies who abuse their power at every turn, right. If this guy was a real cop he'd have shot the dog, gutted it, and wrapped the innards around himself and screamed a victory yell while hoisting the carcass over his head. Then taser anyone who was video taping it.

amirite?

This is a great story...

... but uh, the dog has a collar. I wonder if there's some ex-owner out there wondering what happened to his/her dog?

This cop's a 1 percenter.
 
2012-07-17 01:27:51 PM
Cute story, but the real gem was the comment from the woman saying "He looks like a Staffordshire Terrier, not a Pit Bull."

Sweetheart, I've got news for you there...

RedTank: Eh... doesn't really meet my definition of hero.


Really? It is pretty heroic to buck the trend of putting bullets into these animals immediately. It also was amazing this cop gave the little guy a chance. He definitely risked something for this dog, and I applaud him for it.

Yes, it sounds like a cop and bull story to me.

I know, pit bull, but eh!

Agreed. It actually does take a bit of courage to face a strange animal reported as vicious. Rescuing the dog seems pretty awesome to me.

Too many people spend their time bringing others down.

FTA: I followed the dog into an ally to see how it was acting.

Well that couldn't have been comfortable for ANYBODY involved!

It does to the dog.

If he did it in that order, that's one bad-ass dog.

There's nothing than anyone can say or do that would change my mind from the belief that the world would be better off if there were no pit bulls.

Glad the guy got a pet but it's more likely than not that the dog will hurt someone.

You don't keep a spare collar in your car? I always have one just in case.

Sweetheart, I've got news for you there...


Both the Staffordshore Bull Terrier and the American Staffordshire Terrier are distinct breeds from the American pit bull terrier, although all three have a similar lineage.

Saving an I-told-you-so spot to link to for the followup, when the dog attacks someone, and the cop arrests the victim for hurting his dog.

/am I doing it right?

I just think it's too high an honor.... I would say it's a noble, righteous, or upstanding thing that he did but not heroic. This cop is clearly a dog lover to begin with so such an act is not beyond him. I would also say if you asked this cop that he doesn't consider himself a hero in this specific instance.

/thinks "hero" is grossly overused
//also, rescuing a human is heroic, rescuing an animal is not. Humans do not equal animals.
