hubris73: 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...


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.

DeadMouseTails: 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.


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.

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.

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.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgZZiXPajAc

Tasering a dog gives you all of 5 seconds to consider what to do about a really pissed off pooch, or how to explain to your Sgt why your taser was deployed and where your missing cartridge went.

Owners should be cited for not controling their animals.

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.

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.

First, this isn't Philly. Chester is to Philly as Camden is to Philly...a bad neighborhood that makes Philly look like Mayberry.

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.

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.



If I had just forsaken all my oaths to the public as an officer of the law and murdered two animals sloppily while my hamfisted side kick broke out a 12 gauge to finish what I started in the middle of a public street, I'd look pretty shaken up too.
