Mark you need help dude. We don't base shit off of what ifs. The police could have used other tactics. The owner did co-operate with the police. And anyone can video tape anything. It's called freedom. So, Mr smart ass if you know your rights, that man shouldn't have been handcuffed in the first dam place. Plain and simple the officer was wrong and should be penalized for it. I can honestly say I don't even respect your opinion, its people like you who shouldn't even be allowed to speak making yourself look like a jack ass. #knowyourrights

This is complete BULLSHIT!!!!! They should have let the guy put the dog back in the car. If the officer felt threatened he could have just wounded the dog. It is completely unnecessary to shoot multiple times. too bad we can't do the same that FUCKTARD.

This is unconscionable & criminal. I am disgusted by this. Neither the owner nor the dog did anything provocative or aggressive at all. I hope these guys pay BIG TIME for this. Thank God for instant videos 2day. My condolences to the owner of this dog. I can't image having to stand by powerlessly & watch your companion be shot to death. These officers don't qualify for the title or the job. I hope justice prevails!

How bad can the police get???? There are other means to stop a dog - try pepper spray or a teaser. Police need to be trained

Anyone who signs this is wrong and sends the wrong message to the thugs and the punks that rely on these poor dogs to protect there illegal trades. I am sorry for the dog and am a dog lover and owner myself BUT if this guy wasn't so busy trying to showboat for the crowd this would have never happened. All he had to do is listen to the police officers when they asked him to clear the area when they were serving a warrant in a house that he had nothing to do with him in the first place. As you...

All he had to do is listen to the police officers when they asked him to clear the area when they were serving a warrant in a house that he had nothing to do with him in the first place. As you see in the video his car is parked right there in the intersection where he apparently stopped to purposely get out and interfere with what the police were doing. This guy should have put the dog in the car the first time he was told to leave the area and just left instead he choose to stay and interfere and that's what led up to the demise of this poor animal. The animal did nothing wrong but to try and protect his owner "BUT" neither did the police officer trying to protect all from the dog

show boat you must have been watching something else. I saw an American citizen record activity off community servants. he responded responsibly to the request of the police even the two officers who were initially involved tried to stop the third over reactive cop.

He has the right to video and tape anything he wants to. If the cops were so concerned then they would have secured that entire area. They got mad cause their were being taped. Flat out

that officer was a bully, he went for the dog first. They knew he had that dog and knew the windows weren't all the way up. The public can be a pain but the police are suppose to look at the whole picture, they didn't and it was a sickening end for a well behaved dog. My dog, my kids, my friends would all react the same way, gonna shoot them all. By the way we don't live in a police state YET, soon but not yet, we are allowed to be out on the street. That man and dog threatened NO ONE

Tyson, I'm sure karma will bite him in the ass. If you think about it, him being taped doing this and the whole world getting to actually see for themselves what he did and who he is, karma already got him! This cop won't even be able to go to the grocery store without someone noticing him and saying something.

If you watch the video closely, the dog was sniffing something on the ground, not even going at him when he started shooting. Sick of this. Cops on animals, humans that are already down and handcuffed. (Owner "offered " himself, so not a threat..all they had to do was let guy secure his dog. ) If ..you feel so dang threatened , and whine about "your dangerous", then go get a job ...floor cleaning.

There was other options to use. If a human attacks a cop they either taser them or pepper spray them, why not pepper spray the dog. Lets get PETA involved.

PeTA is worthless..no..worse than worthless. They KILL over 90% of the animals entrusted to them by vets and owners who *think* PeTA will find them a home. They then illegally dump the carcasses in grocery store dumpsters. Do a Google search on "PeTA ahoskie Roanoke Chowan News Herald". Also read the VA Department of Ag yearly reports on the number of animals PeTA takes in vs. the number that ever get out. In 2011, PeTA took in 1935 dogs and cats. They adopted out 24. The KILLED...

Wow, Jennifer. I find it perplexing that you post an anti-PETA rant, on an animal welfare petition. Anyone can "google" the info you have maliciously posted, but apparently not everyone understands PETA's mission. THAT is glaringly obvious. PETA has been a pioneer in bringing the horrors of animal cruelty across the globe, into the spotlight. I don't work for PETA, but I DO work for the largest animal rights org in the world. We all know that each of us from every non-profit animal welfare...

We certainly DO NOT bash each other, and post half truths and slam each other's mission....b/c our missions are all the same. Shame on you.

The officer kept approaching the dog. My God. Let the man go put the dog back in the car for goodness sake. Officer was just waiting for his moment to fire. Watch his body language.
