He completely over-reacted, and in a very dangerous way . He should be punished for this. Police should be prepared in all situations, and when there is a dog involved, humane measures need to be in place for the handling of any situation.
what a sin.
reckless discharge of a firearm in a residential neighborhood with a crowd present is dangerous,unprofessional and unnecesary.That dog was shot for no other reason than the hair up the cops ass.They harassed a citizen and when the opportunity arouse, they shot his dog.What kind of idiot fires four shots at a target 3 feet away and NOT ONE is a kill shot? These cops are untrained,unprofessional ,dangerous and should not be allowed to handle fire arms, especially on the publics dime.
The # 1 reason people become cops is so they can kill within the law.Who are the real psychos here.
this was too much dog was not threating the officer in any way he was just gun happy
Those fucking assholes, what a bunch of ignorant shitheads!! I've gotten to the point that I HATE COPS!!! Everyone of of those assholes need to be fired and NEVER OWN A GUN AGAIN!! Fry their ass!!
As a former police officer, I can thankfully say that I was never placed in a position where I HAD to use my weapon. My training taught me that, had I ever done so, even though I might be legally justified in the shooting, I might be in violation of my department's shooting policy, and would have most likely lost my job; unless I'd used it in immediate defense of my life, or someone else's. I don't think this latest shooting qualifies...but I wasn't in his shoes, thank God.
They repeatedly poked at the dog's face and kept yanking its owner away from it. Max was deliberately provoked so they could shoot him. His owner had be completely compliant and did not resist in any way. There was no reason they couldn't let him re-secure the dog, then cuff him again.
Every one one those ass hole cops should be suspended. The dog was proctecting his owner, what fucking right do they have to shoot at what ever they want. Ass holes .. ignorant fucking duch bags. The guy wasny doing any thing wrong. Let's see if any of those stupid cops have a dog that they love and just start shooting them!!
