Hideous. That dog was of medium size, and didn't look vicious, only as if he was demonstrating the usual loyalty dogs have for their owners. The man gave himself up voluntarily, and beyond the fact that fact that the dog seemed able to be restrained without being killed, what looked like sheer cruelty was the way the officer shot him repeatedly and then just stood back calmly, holding his fire while he WATCHED the dog writhe in pain. Why wouldn't he at least "finish off" the animal he...

Why wouldn't he at least "finish off" the animal he put in great pain in the first place?...That looked VERY sadistic. No one wants a sick, sadistic individual "officially" carrying a badge and a gun.

Totally agree! Take away the gun before he shots another innocent bystander. This is outrageous. That insect of a human should be shot and left to die slowly...

That officer have NO self control and needs to be FIRED! There were people around who could have EASILY been harmed from gunshots being fired for No Reason! ANY officer who pulls their gun so quickly and without good cause, Does Not Deserve To Serve THE PEOPLE.

Wow! That's quite an assessment. 4 times Max came at them. I believe the police showed remarkable self control. I know that there might have people off screen and in the line of fire, but there was nobody on screen and in the line of fire. Trust me, when a large, powerful dog, of the type that is frequently used for guard dog, is coming right at you, 4 times (one time being to within a foot or less of your body) the shots are not "for no reason". I disagree with your last statement. The...

I disagree with your last statement. The officer saw a real, potential threat (large dog who's owner was being held by the police) and responded as he should have. I'm pretty sure he didn't pull his gum thinking, "Oh goody, I get to shoot a big dog. Wait 'till I get his head mounted on my wall." Is that what you think he was thinking? Max's health and safety still set squarely on the shoulder of Max's owner.

This is horrible. Horrible to see. Horrible to think of that poor dog's pain. I don't understand why they approached the owner in the first place. (my sound is a little off on my computer)... I respect Law Enforcement, but this looked so unnecessary. At least they could have not let him continue to suffer - unless they really can't shoot straight at point blank range. Just so terrible.

People scared of animals should not be in law enforcement. Knowledge of animal habits and some investigation rather than brute force and ignorance is what we need. This applies everywhere not just in this situation.

Does anyone else notice the problem with the title being about a city that doesn't exist and the article correcting it. I can't support such a poorly put together petition. Plus I need more facts than just what is posted jere

This makes me sick............ Police need to check their ego and make the RIGHT decisions, the dog was not attacking them even after the first shot!
