shoot the cops, and finish them off with a shotgun. sounds about right.
 
2013-01-29 11:56:10 PM
The cops are completely out of control, pretty much everywhere.
 
2013-01-30 12:01:37 AM
It's a cop-kill-dog out there.

Cops were called when the dogs couldn't be separated, and when they arrived, witnesses were stunned at the reaction.

witnesses were stunned

They must not be Farkers.

Normally I'm on the side of the cops but seriously WHAT THE FARK ARE YOU DOING, GUYS?

It's Philly? Obviously this is what happens when Vick is a local hero.

Don't cops carry stun guns or pepper spray? This seems kind of extreme.

Next time, just say, "Hey buddy, they're YOUR problem." Then just walk away, and see how the public reacts to that video. I'm sure they'll all understand.

It's possible the cops were just excited about the opportunity to kill something. Who cares about pepper spray when you can unload your gun in public generally without consequence?
 
2013-01-30 12:11:19 AM
So, are they not trained in how to use a taser on a dog? That would have seemed a safer alternative, considering the setting.

Dogs have become the unexpected victims in the war on everything.
 
2013-01-30 12:11:49 AM
Want to ban guns? Start with the cops. Most ruthless misusers of deadly force out there.

What's the first thing they do with an officer when he discharges a service weapon? Give him paid administrative leave. Why wouldn't a cop come out with his service revolver blazing?

I hadn't really thought about it before, but can tasers even be used on dogs safely? Most dogs weigh a good deal less than an adult human does, I wonder if there is a minimum weight required to avoid killing them.

Chester police told NBCPhiladelphia.com that the incident was under investigation and at the time the animal control officer in the city was unavailable.

I can't imagine how furious I'd be if I were that dogs owner.

At first I was bothered, but after noticing the breed, meh.

I would definitely be getting arrested and/or shot if I were present when that happened to one of my dogs.

Was talking to my little internet buddy about this a couple hours ago. She lives in Philadelphia. She said this was pretty much a normal reaction for the cops in that town.

Simply put, cops are assholes. They're assholes because they're cops, and they're cops because they're assholes. Police departments aren't in the business of employing decent, honest, gentlemanly people. They're in the business of employing the jagoffs who built up their practice on thumping elementary school kids for their lunch money and lighting firecrackers up kittens asses when they were teenagers.

Just think, if it wasn't for government employment, these folks would be running around in the streets without anyone telling them what to do.

It might kill them or it might do nothing with all the fur. But either way it seems like a good thing to try and is probably going to be less lethal and a bunch of bullets.
 
2013-01-30 12:17:40 AM
Bit of an over-reaction, what?
 
2013-01-30 12:17:49 AM
What kind of dogs were they? If they were both pitbulls, then it's the logical thing. Pomeranians? Not so much.

I hadn't thought about it before either until you mentioned it, but considering we hear about humans being killed by tasers from time to time, it wouldn't  surprise me if it  could kill a dog as well.

Maybe we should get the USPS dudes and dudettes  to train cops in how to handle dogs. I'm pretty sure the ones around here carry pepper spray or some other form of defense in case of an aggressive dog running free through the  neighborhood, trying to eat people in uniforms.

I don't think it states what kind of dog was killed during the incident. The only dog I saw was from the guy who recorded what happened.

My elderly mother dialed 911 by accident one time, and hung up. Cop came to our door, as they do when someone calls 911 and hangs up. They want to be sure there wasn't trouble that kept the person from completing the call, which is nice. What was a little disturbing is that, as I called my mother to the door to talk to the officer, he heard my dog bark and put his hand on his gun.

My dog is a chihuahua.

Kind of worrisome to be living your life, just like you always do, and then a cop comes to your door and puts his hand on his gun. I'm glad he was just being cautious and not some trigger-happy jerk. What's scary about cops is how much trust we put in them, and how badly they can fark us over, should they choose to.

Ok, wait "Freeman told NBCNews.com that the bigger, more aggressive dog seemed to be a pit bull and had a leash, but the other smaller dog didn't. It was unclear who the owners were."

Was the pitbull on the leash the dog defending the truck, or the invader? THIS DETAIL IS CRUCIAL AND OMITTED

Our neighborhood guy can fend off the deadliest attack with a farking electricity bill.

Say what you want, but it is a very effective training technique; they will never do that again.

Lots of the usual anti-cop butthurt in here. What were the cops supposed to do? Try and have a nice conversation with the dogs? They were fighting with each other, if the cops didn't intervene one of them may have been injured or even killed.
 
2013-01-30 12:23:08 AM
You shoot a cop's dog when it is attacking you? Enjoy your manslaughter charges...

Cop shoots your dog because he wanted to come into your backyard and there was a dog in it? Enjoy your dead dog...

Well if one of them was a stray, I'm assuming it didn't have a leash. So the pitbull likely belonged to the guy with the truck. Although it only mentions 'stray' once, so they might have meant it has an owner but just got away from them and was running loose, possibly still with it's leash attached.

"seemed to be a pit bull and had a leash" is a pretty low bar for noticing the breed. You could show the general public pretty much any muscular dog and the vast majority of them would call it a pit bull.

I know *a lot* of dog breeds, and even I thought several of these were pitbulls:
Find the Pitbull
 
2013-01-30 12:26:01 AM
Well, they solved the problem, right? Two dogs were fighting, and when they left, two dogs were no longer fighting.

I mean, if they didn't interrupt the fight, one of those dogs might have killed the other one.

Actually Pomeranians are more vicious, they just don't have much to back it up with.

I 'liked" a page on Facebook (I know, I'm one of those) that is called Mr. Policeman, please don't shoot my dog. Basically people post to their wall incidents of cops shooting their dogs. The people who run the page try to corroborate that it was an unnecessary shooting as much as they can before allowing a posting. I am appalled at how many office involved shootings of dogs go on in the States. It would seem that the cops shoot dogs first without warning or thinking of an alternative. The page also points out when cops do good things for dogs (most often strays or abused dogs) so they aren't completely biased against cops.
 
2013-01-30 12:28:03 AM
Remember, cops shoot your dog, then it was a justifiable shooting as they were in danger. You shoot a cop dog and you get the death penalty.

/America. Fark Yea.
//sigh.

Ban dogs and issue kittens to all citizens. IT... is the only way.
