WHO just pulls out a gun to shot?Maybe we don't need that kind of people as police officers.THEN he continues to shoot as the dog is movingAWAY!EVERY police dept needs to revisit their protocol when dealing with animals.They need training by humane,experienced trainers. These officers brought this on themselves. They deserv
Yes! Very well put Liz!
yes, i agree.
Unfortunately, Liz, Salmon saw an opportunity to get back at Rosdy, whom he recognized. I think he deliberately provoked this situation (look at his face: he's full of hatred!). As you said he has no business being in the police force, and neither have his colleagues!
I am signing many petitions as well...Please copy the link above and keep sharing it on Facebook+Twitter...please the more viral this goes,the better:)
Thank you I think my imagination can figure out what happened...was the dog shot? or mangled to death?
Totally out of order!
@ Laura J.Hearn The dog was NOT off leash. The owner had placed the dog in the car & the dog jumped out the car window. The officers should have thought ahead on this situation. & realized the dog may try to help his owner. The owner was filming the police. Where is that against the law? If anything ,it would help to see the truth of what is happening. I agree I would not do that with my dog,BUT everyone on the scene has a responsibility to make sure that dog is ok.
Yea wait until the dog actually rips your face off before you defend your self...agreed.
@Michael E. Thompson....Did it look like this dog was dangerous in any way?
Poor Max, he was no threat and what happened is utterly shocking. The police officers panicked, something you don't want when a person is holding a gun. These officers need retraining if they're to stay in their jobs. Doesn't exactly give one confidence in the American Police Force.
These Cops are out of control. The shooter has to be fired and prosecuted
Give that no good son of a bitch some of his own medicine!
Agreed all-heartedly, Jody!!!
Justice NOW !
I just felt sick to my stomach. If there is a hell, may they rot forever in it. And from one service member to another: You should be fucking ashamed of yourself, you piece of useless shit and pathetic excuse for a human.
RIP Max, go to hell the officer, Support Animal Liberation Front!
Arrogance and disrespect from all people involved. Dog paid the price.
I know that guy behaved a little stupidly in the first place but that didn't justify to even handcuff him. If police had to arrest everybody that show their (obviously justified...) dislike for them, there wouldn't be enough jails in the country. As for the shooting of the dog, Salmon and his accomplices committed a crime that must be punished with the utmost severity. Cops are not cowboys put there to settle private grudges. If they are to be respected, they must be respectable.
All the police had to do is be aware that the guy had a dog and have him secure the dog. The guy was not resisting the arrest. The dog was just trying to protect his owner just as any good dog would do!
