HotWingAgenda: MusicMakeMyHeadPound: Prince George County, Maryland?

*clicks article*

Huh, I was wrong.

If it was PG County, the dog would've had a Glock and a brick of heroin.


Before or after it was shot?

You guys are not giving the police the benefit of the doubt. I honestly feel you're being unfair. There had to have been a situation missing from the article involved with the dogs actions, that warranted that response.

After reading between the lines, it looks like the dog may have stolen the bike. Does anyone know if it was a chocolate lab? That'd make the image even clearer.

nburghmatt: chihuahua


Chihuahuas can be intimidating little monsters to other dogs. My ex had one that was 18 years old, 95% blind, toothless and had arthritis of the spine and he still thought he was the baddest dog on the block. The neighbor's full grown Doberman would run from him in abject terror.

CruiserTwelve: fredklein: No, but they seriously stayed and shot the dog instead of retreating.

I didn't know you were there.


And you were, I suppose?

You have pepper spray, as effective a dog deterrent as it is a people deterrent. You have a stun gun (actually, do you still carry those, or is it all Tasers now?) - just BUZZING a stun gun without making contact deters a dog attack. You have the clubs and blackjacks you use to assault your citizen employers with impunity any time you feel slighted. You have feet. At some point in your career, you actually had to pass a test of some sort.

I was at a big dog event in Aurora two days ago. I attended a demonstration by an Aurora PD K-9 handler and another handler from Commerce City. Handler seemed like a nice, professional guy who seemed to love his K9 partner. Did an obedience demo and some bite work, answered questions, and boosted the Colorado Police Canine Association. Talked about treatment of retired K9s. He spoke no less than four times, very earnestly, about how "these dogs are our children", "members of our family".

You for any reason you choose open my gate, walk into my yard, and shoot MY family member to death as punishment for doing her job by barking at you, you walk away without a second thoughy, pang of conscience, or least notion of apology.

If I so much as raise a hand against an attacking police K9 I get charged with resisting and assaulting an officer. If I were to kill one in self-defense I'd get charged with murder.

/csb: during Q&A, one of the dogs raised a leg and pissed on the Commerce City handler's shoe.

CruiserTwelve: BuckTurgidson: So, for encounters with dogs, do they teach you heroes anything other than, "immediately fill it with bullets"?

Yes, they teach us to stand there and get gnawed on. If you're a training officer, what do you tell cops to do whan encountering an aggressive pit bull?


I tell them to piss their undies then summarily execute - by emptying at least one mag into - the tail-wagging spaniel that was greeting them.

Since generally the cops are way ahead of me on that, I tell them to come back for my Fantasy Fiction Creative Writing seminar to learn how to fill out the report.

Lligeret: As a dog lover, dog owner, and general police hater, I am siding with the cops on this one.

If you have a trained guard dog ALWAYS ALWAYS have signs (if you have any dog except something puntable you should have signs too, but having a trained guard dog and not having signs is completely stupid).


But hey what do I know about violent dogs I onl ...


Thinking signs would have prevented this is just plain stupid.

did you watch the video and see that the fence was of the chain link type and about 4 ft tall...? There was no critical thought to look prior to entering.

/maybe we should take their guns and give them dog whistles instead...

fusillade762: "Hey look, there's a big mean dog barking in this yard. Our perp MUST be hiding there!"


This!... They shot and killed a trained guard dog... It seems the best possible resolution would be for them to transfer a trained police dog to this guy, and show him the basics... Watch the cops recoil in horror at the thought of losing their precious doggy... Hypocrites...

hosalabad: Dear Pigs, 

If you are searching for a perp in a yard with a pitbull, the absence of the sound of a guy being mauled means the yard is clear, move on.


Yeah, but what if the dog is a co-conspirator? You can never be too safe. "Gotta stay safe! My job is almost as dangerous as postal work!"

What I don't understand is why these cops even devoted their time to chasing down (from house to house, no less) some guy who punched another guy and stole his bike. Is it standard operating procedure to devote manhours to chasing down bike thieves in Hollywood, Fla,? How about break-ins, assault, robberies? Do they pursue these crimes with the same zeal and devotion?

You know what? I realized I just answered my own question. Florida.

Never mind.

davidphogan: Well, they didn't break any laws, so it's time to buy a new dog. Right?


Well...yeah...but...that's only 'cause it's impossible for cops to break laws, because they're cops.

See, I'm not a cop and if I were to shoot and kill a dog I would be prosecuted for, at the very least, cruelty to an animal, and if it were a police dog, I would be prosecuted for murder, because police and their pets occupy a place outside and above our normal legal system. That's just the way it is. Because America is the best country on earth.

relaxitsjustme: clyph: I see CruiserTwelve has already chimed in with his daily dose of cop apologetics.

Seriously, dude, is there any threshold of police misconduct that you can't justify? Any abuse of authority that you can't rationalize?

What would you have had the police do in this situation? Not search for the suspect? I don't really see how this is abuse of authority. Cops abuse their powers all the time but this isn't one of those times.


it's like they say.if you want to make an omelet, you have to shoot an unrelated person's pet.

Cops have never shied away from the pleasure of killing pets before.
even if they go to the wrong house
Looking cool in front of the brother in law.
Or if the dog is already restrained... maybe the cop was reaching for his tazer and got confused.

Cops and dogs are a lot alike mostly friendly but not as smart as most people and have the ability to kill a person and can easily be trained to do so. The primary difference being a dog that kills somebody in cold blood is put down while a cop that does the same thing gets a paid vacation and a promotion.

did a pit bull bite your kid's arm off or something?

i had two of my neighbor's full grown pits in my house with my 15lb chihuahua. they wanted to play with my dog but he wasn't having it. so he bit one of these 100lb death machines on the nose. you know what the pit did? laid down in the corner and whimpered for his owner.

Every time I read about something like this, the police officers claim that they were "afraid." Perhaps that is our problem. We need to hire some less timid cops.

Dezilith: the_rhino: I'm sure an internal investigation will show that shooting the dog 6 times was necessary.

I'm sure there is some farktard that would happily say 'duuuuh! It was a pit bull!'

Disgusting. Just disgusting...and I'm betting that if it was a golden retriever the blacklash on the popo would be worse.


With a pit bull, they have the excuse that the dog was aggressive and violent.

But with a retriever, what are they going to say? It was interfering with arrest? "He was all over me! I couldn't pass because the dog was licking me in the face."
