shoot the cops, and finish them off with a shotgun. sounds about right.

The cops are completely out of control, pretty much everywhere.

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

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?

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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


"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.

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.

Manslaughter? In some states killing a police dog is classified as killing a police officer which makes it Capital Murder. Want to piss off the force kill a cop, really want them after you (and the community, and fark and and and) kill their over priced privacy intruders. Fark the cops and their mutts.

After reading TFA and watching the video I'm still unclear on several things. Why no statement/interview from the driver of the pick-up? Were both dogs strays that decided to fight in the pick-up bed or did one of them belong to the driver? The poor reporting on this is only rivaled by the poor response by the local PD.

Citronella spray. It's cheap, it works and it doesn't harm the dog. I volunteer for a rescue group, carry it in my pocket when I'm at the shelter. We also have cans of it placed around the shelter. I carry my own because I'm on the behavior team and work with dogs who have issues. A common issue is aggression toward other dogs.

CSB Time:

A few years back, a friend and I were driving to California and hit we a cow that had run in front of the car on the interstate. When police arrived, they decided it'd be best to put this poor bovine out of its misery. After a few minutes of arguing over which weapon to use (apparently a lot of paperwork involved when discharging a firearm), they decided it'd be best to have a state sheriff come down with a shotgun. A half an hour later, a sheriff finally comes with a shotgun loaded with... wait for it.... beanbag rounds. This was not apparent to any of us until the shrill sound of agony was bestowed upon our poor ears as one of these rounds was fired at its head. The first policeman's .45 ultimately finished the job.

I agree that there are some dogs that you may have no alternative but shooting. But there are stories of police going onto peoples properties and even if the dog isn't aggressive (and there are witnesses to that fact) still shoot the dog because it looked at them. There are stories of police going onto or into wrong households and because the dog barked at them (protecting it's territory) they shoot the dog instead of letting the owner corral it or control it. And stories of dogs being on leashes and being shot. Really? How do you justify shooting a dog on a leash? Don't get close enough for it to bite you! It runs out of leash and you have nothing to worry about. It's worrisome, the trend of shooting the dog just because you can. And most times, no action is taken by the department, because it's just a dog.

You sound like a pussy. If a dog charges you, kick it in the stomach. A dog won't charge you if you don't act like a pussy, unless it's trained to. Animals sense/smell fear.

If you're really that afraid of dogs, go volunteer at an animal shelter. They're terrific animals, and not terrifying at all.

Second, are they saying that the second dog jumped into the bed of the pickup at a light? If so, that sounds like one bada$$ pup with a nice vertical. I'm going with the pit bull being the jumper due to the aggressive nature of the breed.

Third, if you love your dog, don't just throw him in the bed of a truck. On a farm that's cool, in the city that's stupid.

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.

I'm not police, but dogs are deadly, terrifying and dangerous. If I was a cop doing my job, I'd probably shoot any dog that threatened or charged me. What else is there? Dogs are immune to capsaicin and Teasers.

Tasers, sorry. I didn't mean clit nibblers.

I agree that there are some dogs that you may have no alternative but shooting. But there are stories of police going onto peoples properties and even if the dog isn't aggressive (and there are witnesses to that fact) still shoot the dog because it looked at them. There are stories of police going onto or into wrong households and because the dog barked at them (protecting it's territory) they shoot the dog instead of letting the owner corral it or control it. And stories of dogs being on leashes and being shot. Really? How do you justify shooting a dog on a leash? Don't get close enough for it to bite you! It runs out of leash and you have nothing to worry about. It's worrisome, the trend of shooting the dog just because you can. And most times, no action is taken by the department, because it's just a dog.


When I was 7 I got a trip to the ER, a whole bunch of shots and nice stitches in my neck after I was attacked by a bull terrier on a leash which was chained to the front porch of their house but was so long the dog could go all the way into the street. It allegedly was mean, so the owners said, because the boys at St. Charles Borromeo catholic school teased it, which makes sense because my sister petted it (it was named Snowball) right before it mauled me. My point is, big dogs are scary and I hate them, and all Catholic males masturbate while torturing animals.
 
2013-01-30 01:15:50 AM
Also, the court ordered Snowball to be euthanized (murdered) and for his owners to pay my medical bills. And the Catholics had to do some Heil Murrays or something. I forget exactly I was only seven

Freeman added that some of the cops involved seemed as upset as anyone.

"One of the officers actually looked very, very shaken up about it," he said.

I've always been amused/horrified by the often-dizzying mental gymnastics the police will use in order to justify, however meekly, the stupid shiat they get caught doing. The stated reason is normally silly, but often has some remote resemblance to what might be considered a "rationale"...however flawed.

In this case, I just don't see one. I can't even think of a *bullshiat* excuse for it, and I'm usually pretty good at parodying "cop logic."

So, the ONLY options in the whole universe were a) walk away and b) kill both dogs ?

That ensure that the cops don't get in harms way? Yes.

Then they should shoot everything they see, because everything is a potential threat. Poor logic.

These dogs were at each other, not the cops. Hence the controversy.

Any loud noise will do. A police siren would do the job from quite a ways. A gun shot is loud enough to do the job from a few yards away, as is that peircing whistle some people can do with their fingers.

Not just revenge, as they didn't kill me, but a complete and utter ruin of their legacy. Unearth every skeleton they bury (probably literally), undermine their every arrest with top-end pro-boner lawyering, and help their daughters do what will break their daddy's heart with a fat scholarship to an all minority liberal arts college.

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.

KrispyKritter: Deathfrogg: 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.

Fact: the most out of control, unruly, batshiat crazy, filthy mouthed, destructive and obviously mentally unbalanced boy from my HS graduating class - who we all thought was destined to either die young or found to be a serial killer - became a Paterson NJ policeman.


I agree and wonder why anybody would ever want to be cop who wasn't interested in shooting/beating people and animals. for the wonderful interactions with the dregs of society? the joy of writing traffic tickets? the profound sense of accomplishment that comes busting people for dwi, simple possession, and public intoxication/ disorderly conduct?

How dare you, Sir.

How DARE you, you filthy libtard. You're the EXACT kind of chicom pussy that Ted Nugent warned us about.

How can you question this, clearly, RED BLOODED American who was only trying to feed his family. Did you know that it is an UNDESPUTED fact that a single pit bull can feed a family of four for atleast a week? It is, look it up if you don't believe it. It's clear by this video that all this man was doing was exercising his GOD GIVEN SECOND AMENDMENT rights to do so. Why did it take five shots? fark you, that's why. Second amendment, doesn't matter. All that matters is that his wife was cuddling his starving, crying children surrounding their grill with a bottle of terriyaki sauce and some Dales to marinade that delicious backstrap in. And don't have any doubt, Sir, that had he not shot that dog, that dog would have shot back. I know for a FACT that he was armed with a 88 Magnum, AND THAT SHOOTS THROUGH SCHOOLS!

Yes, that's right, lib sodomites like you want another Sandy Hook on your hands. You should pray to Jesus for your sins to be asolved, you filthy, gun-fearing homosexual you.

Well, they are no longer fighting, huh? Seems like a simple solution. Good thing they shot those dogs or one of them could have been hurt.

Farking pigs.

Who did they think was in danger? All the dogs care about is fighting each other. It's not like they are gonna go "hey what are we doing? If we team up we can take on all the humans together and rule the world."

There was NO reason for those assholes to shoot. None. Pepper spray would have stopped the fight just fine. But I guess then you don't get 3 days of free vacation for firing your weapon, as well as the sexual thrill of finaly killing something.

Now I've got a Hell of a job trying to explain to him why he doesn't want to be one. When I was a kid, you looked up to the police. They were respected and they were someone you could count on. I no longer trust the police, they are nothing now but a government sanctioned gang that attracts the bullies of the world. When are we going to have enough of this crap and put a stop to it?

I really don't like cops as a rule, though I've met a variety of nicer ones as well, but if you aren't raising an asshole, why shouldn't he be a cop? Shouldn't we be encouraging a shift towards better people becoming police, so things might improve in the future?

I was looking for the Florida tag. I am dissapoint.

My theory is that these cops were getting back at the evil dog sect that they have been jealous of for years. I mean, dogs do nothing but eat and sleep and shiat. They just piss wherever they want and get to hump anything that moves, or doesn't. People treat them like kings and queens while these law men are out pounding pavement looking for bad guys and they don't get half the respect that the average canine does. Farking dogs better watch it.

"If your only tool is a hammer, you treat every problem like a nail."

The old timey solution to fighting (or mating) dogs is to throw a bucket of cold water over them. No bucket? throw rocks at them or beat them with sticks.

Which proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that guns do kill people. They kill people by being close to hand, even, or perhaps especially, the hands of the police, not to mention frightened homeowners awakened by a noise (perhaps a child sneaking in at four a.m.), suicidal people, etc.

Over 60% of gun-related homicides are suicides. The hammer is close to hand. (Men are six times more likely to commit suicide successfully because they are more likely to use guns rather than pills or some other method that gives you a second chance to live. Women who attempt suicide often think better of it or can't stand the pain of a slow death. Some are just looking for attention or help.)

The endless stream of news stories that the US press produces about homeowners who shoot somebody fatally for walking up their sidewalk to ask directions or for turning their car in their drive way shows "self-defence" is no excuse or defence.

The endless stream of news stories about cops shooting the mentally ill, or kids (black) for running away, etc., show that policing is no excuse or defence.

The endless stream of children who shoot themselves or other small children show that "responsible gun owners" is no excuse or defence.

Guns do kill people. They kill people by being readily available and always close to hand.

A gun is not safety. It is, at best, security, and a risk of escalated violence. Having a gun does not make you safe, it does not necessarily make you secure. Most weapons used in crimes are stolen from people who thought they would be safe or secure. Far more people are victims of guns than use guns for self-defence.

You can kill people with a knife or a baseball bat, but you are more likely to stop before that contingency when you notice that you are not beating a burgler or facing down a murderer, but your son.

IF I HAD A HAMMER (The Hammer Song)
words and music by Lee Hays and Pete Seeger

If I had a hammer
I'd hammer in the morning
I'd hammer in the evening
All over this land
I'd hammer out danger
I'd hammer out a warning
I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

If I had a bell
I'd ring it in the morning
I'd ring it in the evening
All over this land
I'd ring out danger
I'd ring out a warning
I'd ring out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

If I had a song
I'd sing it in the morning
I'd sing it in the evening
All over this land
I'd sing out danger
I'd sing out a warning
I'd sing out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

Well I've got a hammer
And I've got a bell
And I've got a song to sing
All over this land
It's the hammer of justice
It's the bell of freedom
It's the song about love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

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

"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:

You just brought a thought to mind, what laws are actually directed to dogs? I know we have laws involving dogs but are directed to the owners. I don't know of any laws that actually state a dog will face sentencing or fines for illegal trespass, public urination or public fornication for that matter. If that is the case ALL dogs are law-abiding, however it's the owners that are scumbag criminals.

Freeman added that some of the cops involved seemed as upset as anyone.
"One of the officers actually looked very, very shaken up about it," he said.


I sure as fark hope that these cops step up and get the psycho off the force. That man should not be trusted with a gun, period; much less one that is deemed to protect the local residents.

CSS: My city PD is awesome. The State PD started having troubles a couple years ago so the Gov. stopped the academy and placed them on a hiring freeze. The State academy copied the City's academy, retrained all troopers and then lifted the hiring freeze when the new one opened up. No problems since.

Also, a guy I knew in HS, total sociopath, ended up getting a job as PD in a neighboring city, a very high-crime city and their PD were/are rife with issues. He forever kept trying to get into our city's PD but he failed their psych exam every time. They finally told him to stop applying, that it ain't going to happen.

A referee's whistle.

/daily visitor to the local dog park

But where would a cop possibly get their hands on one of those?

Any loud noise will do. A police siren would do the job from quite a ways. A gun shot is loud enough to do the job from a few yards away, as is that peircing whistle some people can do with their fingers.

But any loud, shattering noise in close proximity to the dogs will give them something bigger to worry about than each other.

Ummm, I was kidding. Most cops have (or at least they used to) one of those things hanging off their belts at all times.


It was late and my sarcasm meter was turned off for the evening.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I had called in an injured deer on the side of the road a few years back. Her back legs were shattered and she was trying to crawl back into traffic. I was standing in front of her, her head about an inch from my feet, so that she couldn't get back into the street. Cop car had pulled up and I knew the deer had to be put down, but I was not expecting the cop's reaction. He hopped out of his car, walked up quickly and popped two in her head with my feet still firmly in place, turned, got back in his car and drove off without a word.

Sounds pretty humane to me as long as he aimed carefully and made sure the animal was dead when he left. No point in letting the animal suffer. He probably should have told you to back up, but that would be it from my end.

Yeah. At least 90% of the wrongdoing they are accused of is just people trying to deny that they were in the wrong. If the cop doesn't benefit from the misdeed it's likely a bad report. This one, though, makes no sense at all.

pyrotek85: Real Women Drink Akvavit: So, are they not trained in how to use a taser on a dog? That would have seemed a safer alternative, considering the setting.

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.


I don't think size matters with a taser. Their fur, though--don't be surprised if it has no effect.

These cops are bad at their job and should feel bad. First off it was cops, in the plural, so....

One cop draws his service weapon and has it ready. The second cop takes out his nightstick or baton and takes a swing at the more aggressive dog of the pair. If you miss and whack the other dog by mistake, take another swing. If the aggressive dog attacks you, retreat and have your partner shoot it by all means.

Personally, oh great now I sound like an ITG, I'm not terrible bothered by the idea of grabbing a pit bull type of dog that is engaged with another dog. The pitt bull isn't paying attention to me and I'm stronger than it, get control of the muzzle, pin it with my weight, profit. Especially when I have a partner there to fend off the smaller dog it was attacking (in case the smaller dog decides to keep fighting). Also most dogs, even if they are aggressive to other dogs, are not so aggressive when they have 160+ pounds worth of human on them and a human's hand on their throat. If the dog is mangy or appears to be a feral, I would definitely think twice about grabbing it, but if it is on the leash and shows signs of human ownership, I'd consider it. You come in from benefit, get a hand on the throat and muzzle and slam the dog down onto the ground, that tends to end shiat quickly.

Yeah, that sounds odd. Also the part where the cop used his pistol. Around here its a two cop operation. One closes the street down for a block or two, the other gets out a shotgun or rifle and takes the deer out. Then they cover the body with a tarp so the kids don't see deer brains everywhere and a town maintenance worker collects it. Doing the deer execution style with a 9mm or a .45 does not seem well thought out on a number of levels.

If it went all the way through the head, I assume it would ricochet back up into the deer's head/body, but I am not a ballistics expert. I wouldn't expect a 9 mm bullet to go back through the body though since it doesn't have a ton of muzzle velocity.

Then they came for our shepherds, labs and retrievers, and I did not speak out because I do not have one of those.
Then they came for the remaining dogs, and I'm going to have to shoot the fascists who show up for mine.

I live in deer country, Have had to call cops a few times for this. Had one flat out refuse to shoot a deer and called for a cop he knew to be a hunter to do it. I felt for him.

This guy, regardless of his motivation, should have given me warning. A bullet bouncing off of a skull or, more likely, the pavement, would have done some serious damage to me.

I'm very skeptical. How can you make that assertion if a successful self detense display of a gun will likely not be reported? Social scientists estimate the number is between 250,000 and 370,000 times per year, but there obviously is no count.

As with the people who said the victim's family member was heckled recently, many gun control activists have a serious problem with accuracy because they seem to think their ultimate good intention justifies fudging the facts (or lying, if you prefer).

Why do you see stories like this all the time? Some fregin retard cop in Omaha shot a family golden retriever just because it was approaching him and the cop said it was aggressive contrary to MANY eye witnesses at the scene. At least 2 other incidents just like this have happened just in Omaha the last year - cops are idiots and pussies! They can't use a taser, baton, mace, or how about jump in your squad car if nothing else????.....oh NO!!!.....the 1st reaction is to unload their service weapon! MORONS!!!

Popcorn Johnny: jonrey: A lot of people severely misinformed about the nature of pit bulls.

Yeah, you.  Pitbulls are a naturally aggressive breed and have to be trained to suppress those urges.

doglover: a complete and utter ruin of their legacy. Unearth every skeleton they bury (probably literally), undermine their every arrest with top-end pro-boner lawyering, and help their daughters do what will break their daddy's heart with a fat scholarship to an all minority liberal arts college. Full Ride, English Lit with a minor in Womyn's Studies. No, make that a DOUBLE MAJOR.

Then, when they're broken and alone and they're paralyzed from the soul out by the sheer uselessness of their time on this Earth, then I will gift them a nice silver ball with their name on it and a brand new wheel-lock.


You lost me there, but I admire your spunk.

I have a gun, and the cops know I have a gun. We both know that if it ever comes to a shootout, I'm going to lose, but the chance I might get a lucky shot off first and kill one of their own means that even the most sadistic and violent "bad cop" on the force is far less inclined to go straight to the intimidation and beating part of their job with me than they are with someone who's known to be completely unarmed and won't even let his/her children engage in acts of pretend violence.

/and the funny thing is, even the bad cops are trained investigators, so believe me, they WILL know
//same thing applies to bad people in general, too
///especially the criminals who are the victim's family and friends, and thus probably know things about their victims even the cops don't

Or, more likely, they'll go straight to shooting you without wasting time on the tazering that they'd have done with the unarmed person before deciding if a bit of shooting was needed. But hey, whatever makes you feel good about yourself.

See, that's the thing... I don't consider cops, even the bad ones, to be scenery-chewing Darth Vader styled supervillains. I think they're people like me, doing a job they like a little too much, or screwing it up a little too often, but not out to gun anyone down because they're pants-wetting scared of any armed threat to their authority.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: So, are they not trained in how to use a taser on a dog? That would have seemed a safer alternative, considering the setting.


Actually the opposite. You see, Tasers have these barbed darts that hook into the skin, and attached to these are wires that don't exactly break that easily. You start jolting a dog in a fight and you are going to cause even more chaos with screaming tearing, tangling, etc. If they get tangled there is NO chance they are getting away from each other even if they wanted, and they will keep striking out of fear and pain until they drop dead.

Pepper spray would be best, followed by maybe bean bags. At least the bags give them a chance of survival.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: 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.



Wut? That makes zero sense. They killed BOTH dogs. So if one of the dogs might have been killed if they didn't intervene that still would have been an empirically better outcome.

And the other thing... If they couldn't break up the fight without killing them both - and I'd assert even without killing only one of them - they have absolutely no business being cops, unless they're stuck behind a desk.

Somehow, this doesn't gel with your previous stance that owning a gun stops them randomly beating the shiat out of you.

Mostly because that wasn't my previous stance.

Nice snip! You must have a job at NBC.

/and even after removing most of the context, you still can't make it say anything similar to "owning a gun stops them randomly beating the shiat out of you"

You really are mentally incompetent, aren't you?

Here, let me add the "context" back in. Not that it changed what you said in any way -- just saved folks reading some more nonsense.

Here, I'll even bold the context for you.

Tatterdemalian: I have a gun, and the cops know I have a gun. We both know that if it ever comes to a shootout, I'm going to lose, but the chance I might get a lucky shot off first and kill one of their own means that even the most sadistic and violent "bad cop" on the force is far less inclined to go straight to the intimidation and beating part of their job with me than they are with someone who's known to be completely unarmed and won't even let his/her children engage in acts of pretend violence.


You still said that you believe the cop "is far less inclined to go straight to the intimidation", and you still said that the reason for that nonsensical idea is because "I have a gun, and the cops know I have a gun. the chance I might get a lucky shot off first and kill one of their own".

That is little different to my briefer, less rambling (but no less nonsensical, since it's your viewpoint) paraphrase that you believed "owning a gun stops [the police] randomly beating the shiat out of you".

But please, do enlighten me as to how the "context" changes what you said. Because remember, YOU said it.

Moron.

I`m just glad the police stopped the fight because otherwise one of the dogs might have been hurt.
