(Daily Mail)   Arkansas sheriff's deputy and K-9 handler fired for shooting aggressive pit bull in the face in front of owner. Did I say pit bull? I'm sorry. I meant chihuahua. I always get those confused   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line

Naido: I'm typically against this sort of thing but, um, don't we all want to shoot chihuahuas in the face?


In high school we got drunk at a friend's place when his parents were gone and they had one. It didn't matter what you did, it just barked and barked. And it would get right in your face on the couch doing it. At one point I thought it would funny (drunk) to grab the dog and whip out my switchblade. I was immediately tackled by three friends. Still holding the dog in one hand I responded by saying "It's okay guys, I got him".

To this day they're all convinced I was actually going to shank the dog.

Naw.  Have two part-breeds, and dealt with a few purebreds.  They are just dogs you have to actually be really damn severe with to establish who's boss.  (No, not beating them up or some shiat, sheesh.)  Shouty voice and posture, combined with crowding them out of an area usually works fine though.  A light bop on the head or forcing them to lie down at the worst tends to get them realizing you're not screwing around.  Most purebreds are bastards because people let them be bastards.

Well yes, I was talking about with humans.  Other dogs, they're tyrannical little gobshiates as a rule.  Our chihuahua/dachshund/godsknowwhat mix doesn't bother, but she's also 30 pounds and built like a weightlifting bulldog.  She just ignores the chihuahua/lundehund/godsknowwhat mix when she doesn't feel like complying.  Sorta like knowing someone that's very, very polite and nice - that also is 6'7 and 350 pounds of mostly muscle.  Difficult to seriously mess with them unless they're willing to go along with the whole thing.

All of this. My neighbour has four Pomeranians (in a small house in the middle of a city... eyeroll), and they never shut up. But it's because they're left shut indoors on their own for hours and hours, and they're bored and lonely. They're also almost entirely untrained - don't come when they're called etc.

I feel really sorry for the dogs, but I would still have happily thrown them down a well, after being woken up by them barking for the 100th time. Soundproofing ftw.

Alright, here's a twitter feed that includes a link to both the story from another publication, AND video of the incident.
Which also contradicts the deputy's claims.

I'm honestly surprised anything came of it.  It's pretty much expected that the cops will shoot your dog.
 
2019-01-07 06:19:49 AM  
Not that surprising. Cops have been happily and sociopathically shooting dogs for 20 years.

It's based on the portion of the academy where they remove any last empathy and compassion a cadet may have before being let loose on the street with a gun.

Normally, I'd say "Fu*K you, and lick the shiat out of my ass until it turns into cotton candy."

But I do in fact understand why one would call a chihuahua an aggressive dog.

But anyone who shoots one should be set on fire. Not to death, just to be burned a lot. Then they should be staked out spread eagle and left to be eaten by AN ANT. Just one. And she only takes one little flake per trip.

Yeah not a great caretaker of her animals either. Their bulldog was tied up outside pretty much year round. They also had a few cats with mange.

She also would keep all 6 dogs out while we would try to bbq. Those little ones would constantly bark. Ugh

I've read stray dog hatred was pretty significant in deployment zones. Not by the troops, but by the commanders for fear of rabies and other concerns.

LaChanz: Xai: I was pointing out the police's response is based on race you dumb fark - but pray do tell how you bring attention to institutional racism without mentioning race?

Was it? You were there? Their response was because a bad cop did a bad thing. Does this department have a history of letting white cops slide? What do you know that we don't? You brought race into this. You.


He has a point.  Bad cops do bad things every day and rarely if ever get fired for it.  Fark is rife with stories of white cops shooting black Americans.  So much so that when one is brought up on charges or otherwise penalized its big news here.  At the same time, there are plenty of stories about cops shooting dogs and the same thing applies, the cops are usually believed and the comments threads here are full of self righteous exasperation.   Here, the initial story is about a black cop shooting a dog and who is immediately fired.  I believe there's a subtext. You may not agree but you don't have to be shrill about it or call out Xai.  People are allowed to have different opinions than yours and they're allowed to post them.
 
2019-01-07 07:15:47 AM  
Well, they didn't have to do it in front of the owner. That was wrong.
 
2019-01-07 07:20:04 AM  
Many of the people on the force are not fit to be there.  Obviously, he feels entitled to shoot whenever his authority is challenged.  Ironically, the shooting of the chihuahua appears harder to justify than that of a human.

Disease vector, yeah. Not that troops hated dogs (Hell, we had mascot dogs and pups some troops tried to bring home), but command wanted them all put down on FOBs, etc due to the disease potential or so they said.

Reminds me of a really excellent contemporary poem I saw recently...


Field Manual
by Kevin Powers

Think not of battles, but rather after,
when the tremor in your right leg
becomes a shake you cannot stop, when the burned man's
tendoned cheeks are locked into a scream that,
before you sank the bullet in his brain to end it,
had been quite loud. Think of how he still seems to scream.
Think of not caring. Call this "relief."

Think heat waves rising from the dust.
Think days of rest, how the sergeant lays
the .22 into your palm and says the dogs
outside the wire have become a threat
to good order and to discipline:
some boys have taken them as pets, they spread
disease, they bit a colonel preening for a TV crew.

Think of afternoons in T-shirt and shorts,
the unending sun, the bite of sweat in eyes.
Think of missing so often it becomes absurd.
Think quick pop, yelp, then puckered fur.
Think skinny ribs. Think smell.
Think almost reaching grief, but
not quite getting there.

Incredible piece of writing isnt it. It was in the Weekend Guardian a few years ago, in the Arts section. I ripped it out and it's up on my fridge. It's a bit serious for fridge reading, but I read it frequently, and its impact is undiminished.

Absolutely this, we have 2 Chihuahuas, and they are super farking smart so like you said we have to go through extra effort to assert dominance over them, but they usually just want to lay on my belly and sleep the cute little farkers.
 
2019-01-07 07:45:00 AM  
I feel the cop's intent was to escalate the situation so he may have reason to tase/shoot the owner.  Dog doesn't seem to be a threat.
 
2019-01-07 07:54:42 AM  
It's always sad when you have to put a dog down, but sometimes, when a creature is suffering, it is the most humane thing you can do.  You can not convince me that chihuahas are not suffering.
