Its not like they have pepper spray or anything. Oh wait...

Meter readers and phone men carry pepper spray for dog situations and it seems to work fine. How to get these sadistic sonofabiatches to use spray instead of a gun on a national level is the question.

Well, did they find the suspect in the backyard? Did they catch the suspect period?

All I got was they shot the dog on its backyard and held the owner because he was upset they shot his puppy.

It seems as though everyone who came in contact with the puppy said he was a gentle pet. He wouldn't attack anyone, it wasn't the doggy's style.

Police said they saw their suspect in the couple's home.

Funny, they didn't find the suspect there.  IT's almost like they needlessly entered their yard, killed their dog, and came up with a BS excuse for being there.

Police arrested Showalter for interfering with the investigation when he confronted them about the situation.

Do not question us citizen.

If the cops shoot my dog...

I'll really cry a lot, and meekly apologize to the officer for having a gentle dog on my property that got in the cop's way making him shoot him. 
Because I am terrified of the police and they will shoot me and make my life a living hell if I even speak up in any attempt to retaliate.
And I'll go back into my house (hopefully) and cry for days and do nothing at all because the cops win. They always win. There's no use in fighting, or resisting, or calling attention. This happens every day, and we all sit by and do nothing, because to get on the wrong side of the cops is a mistake.

All officers everywhere should be required to wear cameras with audio at all times.  Never be able to turn them off, and they need dash cams too.

You tend to find that cities that do that, weed out the sadistic bastards like this.

MurphyMurphy: Welcome to the Fascist States of Muricah

If a cop shoots my dog? I'm going to prison for the rest of my life making an example of him.

I like almost all dogs more than most people,
and my dog more than any of them.

It's best it's my family, at worst my property,
If I'm not allowed to protect either, it's not really worth walking around "free" in this farce anyways.

Punk Rock Hippie: we all sit by and do nothing, because to get on the wrong side of the cops is a mistake.


no, we sit by and do nothing because most terrible things inflicted on us at the hands of others are not so bad a thing as to throw away everything else you have for that one affront

depends on where your line is. most of us don't even know where ours lies.
sometimes people have that line crossed. it happens all the time. by either one outrageous wound or a culmination of many

and those people do not sit by,
they end up on the news being labeled a lunatic (which at that point, they may very well be)

but that is the question, is it more lunacy to stand by and allow a series of crimes that amount to tyranny? or to commit your own to make a statement, in the hopes of stopping them entirely.

one thing is for certain, many have their lines crossed before the body politic agrees with such outrageous action. but it does get bad enough, frequently so.
if they didn't, you wouldn't have the litany of revolutions this world's history is littered with.

it's the stuff that makes freedom fighters
and terrorists.
it's the way of the world really.

shiat gets bad enough? people stop 'sitting by'

I was living in an apartment complex in Philly during college and had some cops break into my apartment while I was sleeping, claiming that they had seen a suspect enter my apartment. I was sleeping and woke up to 3 cops poking the fark around my pad like Nazi Germany. I had a 5 month old adopted pit who slept in the bedroom with me who came out as well. Thank god he was still a tiny thing because I have no doubt they would have shot him 15 lbs later and probably me too. I was furious and asking them how and why the hell they could be in my apartment at all. There was a girl passed out on my sofa which wasn't unusual in my twenties and when they realized their mistake they started asking questions about why she didn't wake up during the ruckus and that she must be on drugs. One cop went into my living room closet and grabbed on of my winter coats and said,  "This coats black, wasn't he (suspect)wearing a black coat", when it was obvious they farked up. At that point, they told me that it was for my safety that they entered my apartment and left. I filed a complaint, but never heard anything.

Follow up? Contact ACLU?

Even in college (fark, especially in college) I would have been screaming about this until they declared me insane just to shut me up.

I had a Blue Merle Collie when I was a kid that people kept telling us was a timber wolf.  Some even called the cops.  My parents had to show his AKC papers to the dog officer because she was going to take him.

Apparently their "investigation" involved a regular cop driving by the house, looking at him, and visually confirming he was a wolf.  Had my mother not been home when the dog officer arrived who knows what would have happened.

This is a Blue Merle Collie.

spamdog: 10-month-old lab-pit bull puppy

I'd guess adult lab-pit mixes would range from 35-55 lbs, based on what I've seen at the local shelter.  At 10 months you expect a dog to not be done growing, but probably at least 3/4 of their adult size, so figure 30-40 lbs.  Definitely not on the order of an adult German Shepherd or Rottweiler or something huge like that.

They still look really distinctly puppyish at that age, too -- that is, if you stop to actually look before shooting something.

\As a side note, our neighbors have a 120 lb. Rottweiler who absolutely terrifies my less confident dog, but he seriously acts like he's a Golden trapped in a Rottweiler body, he's so damned sweet and friendly.

Yes. Clearly the cops were out cruising around, and went 'hey, look, a dog, let me go and shoot it' then came up with a lame ass cover story.

They couldn't have been, I dunno, looking for the guy, seen someone, said 'maybe that's him', went to investigate, been attacked by a poorly trained dog (and been a poorly trained, power hungry, cop looking to shoot something).

No, it's obvious, they just wanted to shoot something on company time. You've solved that farking case.  The cops farked up all around, but really?

Oh, I'm sure they were chasing a suspect.  I'm also sure they decided to cut through their yard, shiat their pants as the site of a dog and killed it.  Then made up the story about seeing the suspect INSIDE their house to explain away why they jumped his fence.

And when the owner started to complain about them killing his dog they arrested him to shut him up.

OK, the cops claim they "saw" the guy they were looking for in the house.  Who was he?  They claim he ran out the back.  Any one see that?  There was a fight elsewhere?  Where?  With whom?  Over what?  What reason did they have to pick that house?

There is a whole lot that just does not add up here and it sounds like the cops are making it up as they go.

I think the answer is street cops should not be allowed to carry guns.
If an armed response is required, a specially trained armed unit is sent out to deal with the situation.  It's blindly obvious the average person these departments hire are not smart enough or trainable enough to be trusted with deadly weapons.  They can carry tasers and pepper spray to terrorize us with.
