Dear local taxpayers.

One of our police officers shot a dog.

We're supposed to fire him, adding him to the roll of unemployed in our county. Oh, and sorry about wasting all that money of yours on training him.

But he shot a dog.

We haven't really had a chance to assess the situation, but the owner of the dog insists that we fire the officer. He also insists that we use some of your money to train our officers to better deal with aggressive dogs, which we think is a good use of your money. But yeah, we're also supposed to fire him...So. There you go.

CowardlyLion: Salt Lake man wants police officer who killed his dog fired

Waaaaah. STFU and train your next dog not to attack the police.

/it's a dog--grow the fark up
//white people are the farking worst


your name is very befitting.

maybe the police should be trained better...after all it was the officer who hopped the fence, not the dog.

moeburn: Can anyone tell me, what does the law state about defending yourself against the police?  Like what if a cop tried to rape you?  Would it be illegal to resist?


You'd be in a rough spot.  The entire legal structure is pretty strongly slanted in the LEOs favor.

Motherfarking piece of shiat pig. I thought the headline was a joke, but I should have known it wasn't. A cop isn't satisfied at the end of the day unless he's killed someone's dog, is he?

it was not even a shepherd or a pit bull, the coward pig shot one of these:

I don't know if it has been said yet, but if a civilian harms a police dog, it is considered assaulting a police officer. If that idiotic law exists, the reverse should be true: if a cop kills a civilian's dog, he should be charged with murder.

If the defense had indisputable evidence of the cop's guilt (video, testimony, DNA, etc.) I'd put your chances of prevailing in court at, oh I don't know, about 50%? Maybe?

You are obligated to follow an officer's lawful orders. A cop trying to rape you is pretty clearly not lawful and you're entitled to resist that with the same force you would resist it from anyone else (and in many jurisdictions that includes the use of deadly force).

Of course with reality being what it is, you can expect to have a harder time proving yourself justified in defending yourself from a cop than from someone else.

In any case where you believe the officer's orders are unlawful but it's not a matter of life and death or avoiding a sexual assault, you're probably best off following the orders and having the matter sorted out in court later.

jst3p: The Flexecutioner: i hope the cop's 'property' gets destroyed and someone gets away with it too.  fark them in the ass with a hot fireplace poker.  how could they not search the home first?  fire him and the others for that level of incompetence.  it doesnt even need to be about the dog.

i wonder how the children's parents feel now that they know they didnt check the farking basement.

Thrilled that their kid isn't missing?


"Thrilled"? Their inability to check their own farking basement has resulted in someone's dog getting shot in its own backyard. I bet they feel pretty shiatty. Good thing it wasn't a person that cop shot, or these people would feel like garbage.

The cop would still feel great though.

nyseattitude: jst3p: nyseattitude: "There are extenuating circumstances," said Wilking. "A child is missing, and if you're a parent, you would want us to look everywhere for your child. We wouldn't want to leave any stone unturned."

That give you the right to void everyone's rights and break the law.

The guy should press charges for murder, breaking and entering, trespassing, illegal search, conduct unbecoming of an officer, excessive force, civil rights infractions and everything else a lawyer can come up with.

In the end all he can sue for is replacement cost of the dog, I guess if it were a rescue that would be 0.

Seriously? Why is that?

Or am I missing a joke?


Right now, the dog is considered"property". The owner is trying to get a bill introduced that will change that.

insertsnarkyusername: Headso: remember the police should be the only people allowed to carry guns

Nobody says that ever.It's definitely a common anti-gun argument. The ordinary cops probably shouldn't have guns to begin with. Let the call an armed response team if it can't be dealt with by mace and tasers.


FTFY

Maybe you're right, nobody says "only" the police. They like to go ahead and throw the military in as well. So it's the military and the police that should be the only ones to carry guns, according to a large portion of the anti-gun crowd. And they say it all kinds of "ever".

teenytinycornteeth: moeburn: teenytinycornteeth: namegoeshere: Three Crooked Squirrels: Apparently he was found before we even got the recorded phone call.

Grrrr... there was an Amber Alert originating several hours away from me, no details, just a common type of car and a license plate. Like even if I was driving in the area I would have checked my phone for the license plate number every time I passed a similar car. It buzzed my phone every ten minutes all freakin' afternoon. And evening, and in the middle of the night. Long after they had arrested the faked-my-own-kidnapping little chippie for stealing the car and a gun herself.

I guess I never thought I'd see the day when people were pissed about Amber Alerts.  Here's something weird...I don't get them sent to my phone and as a result they don't "buzz all freakin' afternoon".  Take a little initiative so those dang missing kids don't have to ruin your day!

people aren't pissed about amber alerts, they are pissed about the amber alert phone notification system.

I'm not sure where you live, but I've never ever gotten an Amber Alert notification on my phone here in Chicago.  Can't you opt out of the notifications?


I live in Toronto, so I don't know what the fark you Americans are talking about when you talk about amber alert notifications.  But from what I hear from farkers, I think it's a rural thing.

You'd have to live long enough to make it to trial.  Good luck with that.

The article is not clear on whether the cop:

A. entered the yard unaware of the dog, then shot it because of its reaction.

B. entered the yard aware of the dog, then shot it because it acted as expected and tried to defend the yard from/growled at the intruder.

C. shot the dog preemptively because they feared the dog and wanted to enter and search the yard.

"A" is perhaps defensible.  "B" and "C" are not.
 
2014-06-25 04:15:49 PM
You know why all these dogs are getting shot?  Because cops have stopped carrying pepper spray, because their tasers work so well, but your department would rather you shoot a dog with a $0.70 bullet, then a fifty dollar per shot taser.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMBER_Alert#Canada

"Canada's system began in December 2002, when Alberta launched the first province-wide system. At the time, Alberta Solicitor-General Heather Forsyth said "We anticipate an Amber Alert will only be issued once a year in Alberta. We hope we never have to use it, but if a child is abducted Amber Alert is another tool police can use to find them and help them bring the child home safely."[29] The Alberta government committed to spending more than CA$1 million to expanding the province's emergency warning system so that it could be used effectively for Amber Alerts.[29] Other Canadian provinces soon adopted the system, and by May 2004 Saskatchewan was the only province that had not established an Amber Alert system.[30] Within the next year, the program was in use throughout the country.

Its like they just look for any excuse to shoot a dog...

Has this always happened, or is this just a case of more of these stories are getting reported?  I grew up in the suburbs of LA back in the 1980's and I don't recall stories about dogs getting shot all that often, and generally is was because the dog itself was dangerous.

Yes, you fire him.  Sooner the better.  You don't wait till officer hair trigger screws up again and cost the taxpayers millions in court fees and damages when the department gets sued.  The least expensive option for the taxpayers is to fire him immediately.

As it is they'll probably get sued over the dog being shot.  A cop with this kind of stellar judgement is too big a liability to leave on the force.

If anything I think it's remarkable when someone voluntarily tells the unvarnished truth.  Maybe 1 in 20 people will actually do that.  The odds are probably much lower with cops as public opinion has a strong effect on their employment.
 
2014-06-25 04:29:53 PM

unexplained bacon: I know it's typical that you can only sue for the replacement cost of your dog (though I thought I'd heard that some states were thinking of changing that, not sure) but what about mental anguish or that sort of thing?

You get a judge who loves his dog it seems like you could get a bigger judgement...or is that not something you can do?


Nope.

Unless you can show intentional infliction of emotional distress - which requires you to prove the dog was shot with the specific intent of causing you emotional harm, and not for other reasons- you are SOL, at least as far as court is concerned.
 
2014-06-25 04:30:25 PM
Within the last couple years it seem that there is a growing number of incidents where police shoot family pets for no reason other than "We will not be punished for it."

But then again, maybe they just need to add some stimulation to their spank banks....Kathryn Johnston isnt doing it for them any more....

if this all happened in front of 30 people and cujo is coming at him he has no reason to lie and therefore we can all assume that the statement that made it's way into the news is actually him telling the truth. When that isn't the case and the guy speaking for for the cops keeps hedging by saying things like "i wasn't there" and "possibly" then we can use that as a test to figure out who the bootlickers are when they rush in to the thread to tell everyone about this aggressive and angry dog.

I have a GED in "Judge Judy" and it tells me the animal is considered property. When you deprive someone of their property you can only sue for what it costs to replace that property.


While this has been true in the past, just recently the Texas Supreme Court has determined that an owner could get damages for the negligent loss of their pet.  (the dog was euthanized mistakenly at an animal shelter).

In 1963, Texas adopted a "sentimental value rule," which provided that if property is wrongfully destroyed and that property had no market value, then the parties involved could sue.  But they never applied sentimental value to a pet.  You could only ever recover the replacement cost of your pet. Not any more, and it happened in Texas!

That said, there are also sovereign immunity laws that often apply to municipalities, so they may be screwed anyway.

I ANAL and I am not a lawyer but you link seems to say the opposite of what you said it said.

The Supreme Court reversed, holding that under established legal doctrine, recovery in pet-death cases is, barring legislative reclassification, limited to "loss of value, not loss of relationship."

JesseL: You are obligated to follow an officer's lawful orders. A cop trying to rape you is pretty clearly not lawful and you're entitled to resist that with the same force you would resist it from anyone else (and in many jurisdictions that includes the use of deadly force).


Actually, courts have decided that you're obligated to obey an officer's unlawful orders as well, up until they're causing grievous bodily harm or something.  If they're just illegally arresting you or something you're supposed to complain to the courts.

JesseL: In any case where you believe the officer's orders are unlawful but it's not a matter of life and death or avoiding a sexual assault, you're probably best off following the orders and having the matter sorted out in court later.


Yup.  Our views are a difference of degree, not substance.
 
2014-06-25 04:55:22 PM
What still confuses me is why cops aren't taught at cop school how to deal with dogs. How many pet dogs are there in the US? Millions? Tens of millions? It doesn't have to be a months long in-depth class...just basic common sense. Just seems like an obvious thing to me...
 
2014-06-25 04:55:38 PM
This is a worry to me..my 60+ parents trained a doberman as a family pet after years of breeding boxers, and their neighborhood took a nasty turn after 30+ years of living there...the doberman follows my parents like a baby...all of the neighbors fear her because she looks frightening..lots of disjointed family rentals now and disputes over whatever nonsense..she never leaves the fenced in yard, but she looks intimidating. ..

Three Crooked Squirrels: they may have exceeded their authority with only good intentions


The road to hell is paved with good intentions.  That's why the founders included the 4th amendment.  So the cops can't throw your rights to the wind whenever they find them inconvenient.  Just because a child is involved doesn't give them the right to trespass and kill an innocent dog.  Overstepping their authority is overstepping their authority regardless of the reason.  Stop justifying bad behavior or it will continue to get worse.  What's next?  Should they kick in doors and search the homes of everyone that's not home in case the child got into one those homes?  They had the best of intentions right?

Remember people "BEWARE OF THE DOG" and  "NO TRESPASSING" signs aren't just to protect stupid people from your dog.  They are also to protect you and your dog from stupid people like this cop.

Luckily for us; the responding officer recognized him as a boxer and told the busybody so.

people aren't pissed about amber alerts, they are pissed about the amber alert phone notification system.

I'm not sure where you live, but I've never ever gotten an Amber Alert notification on my phone here in Chicago.  Can't you opt out of the notifications?

I live in Toronto, so I don't know what the fark you Americans are talking about when you talk about amber alert notifications.  But from what I hear from farkers, I think it's a rural thing.


They show amber alerts in toronto on the Digital highway signs.  Only other place I've ever seen them is running across the bottom of local tv stations.

iheartscotch: CSB time!

We had some busybody from the HOA come by my parents house the other day; trying claiming their Boxer is really a Pitt Bull. Apparently, she got all indignant when my dad explained to her that he's not a Pitt. She also called the cops, I guess. Luckily for us; the responding officer recognized him as a boxer and told the busybody so.

/ just because he's brachycephalic doesn't mean he's a Pitt, lady

// brachycephalic means that he's got a squish face; like a pug or a bulldog


When I was a kid we had a dog officer try and seize our purebred Blue Merle Collie because she, a cop who drove by, and whatever busybody called the cops thought he was a Timber Wolf.  My mother had to show her his AKC paperwork before she would believe he wasn't a wolf/hybrid.

Ironically if a criminal harms police dog snapping at his throat its a crime.
