if norty did not bite anybody, it was an unjustifiable excessive force on the behalf of the officer, any lawyer will work for free on the lawsuit if this is the case , I drove by that morning when norty was in between both squad cars , norty was standing still, shaking legs and tail in between legs, NOT showing any aggression it took me about 1 minute to pass because of oncoming traffic was going around them, if that situation was that bad they should have blocked the road, no they were just...

To Terry Sheilds.
You would think any attorney would be willing to help get justice but its not so easy, at all. All a officer needs to say is he "felt" threatened, not "was" threatened see who are we to judge what made that paticuliar officer feel he was threatened, "was" is not certain, hard to prove so officers have a get out of jail free card, a free pass to kill at will. If these dogs have priors of getting out, thats another thing a lawyer will say kills a case. I know, real lame, but...

Its a terrible situation that needs to be changed. Mandatory retraining, mandatory nonlethal means of dealing with dogs except in only very specific situations and mandatory investagation by 3 party with ACCOUNTABLITY.

rose I'm so sorry about norty, that is just plain rotten of the police to do. Justice would start with him being suspended without pay till this is investigated, then he should definatley loose his job. someone who shoots and animal 6 times is obvisouly not the type of person who needs to be doing that sort of job. there are ways to mame the animal so he can not attack without shooting him in the head, if the need be. this officer obviously has issues that goes far beyond serving and...

I wonder how he would feel if someone put 6 rounds into the head of his pet? especally without knowing the animal or what he is like. Again I am so sorry and love you, take care of yourself and I hope that cop gets just what he deserves.

6 times in the head? this sounds to me like this cop had an itchy finger, and couln't wait to scrath it! 6 shots to a lil dog its just not justifiable it don't make any sense and why was he in their property? this kind of thing is making me so scared for my bullies here more and more everyday.

SIX SHOTS..norton had to have been shooting back..if it takes an officer of the law six shots to put down an animal..that officer can not be qualified to fire his weapon...

A fairfax VA cop blinked a flashlight in a woman's eyes knowing she had epilepsy specifically to give her a seizure. The cops laughed about it even as the paramedics whoed up, who joined in the sickness.

I'm so sorry for what happened to your beloved pet. I truly hope that the trigger happy cop gets severely punished. He should not be allowed to be on the streets with a gun, he is a danger to anyone who crosses him.He obviously has little regard for life and If he will shoot an innocent dog 6 times in the head you have to wonder just what he is capable of doing to a guilty person. proven fact that people who are cruel to animals are capable of being cruel to humans. I am from the UK so...

He would probably shoot them 1st and ask questions later, he should not be allowed to keep his job that's for sure, he is a very dangerous man

If the owners are suing the remains of the dog has to kepted because it's evidence, many cases have been lost cause the owners have disposed of the remains of the dog.
Request to the sheriff if they can provide training for their officers in handling a unfamiliar dog.
I did this in Monroe County in New York and the training has been instituted and the press conference is in April, 2013.
Don't give up it can be done and my grief goes out to the owners of Norton.

Yes kimberly I was I was speaking and sharing what I was doing in Monroe County our sheriff is having a press conference on their training next month because I requested a training for their officers.
Jim Osario said the same thing about holding Norton's remains if you are taking this to court, I feel so bad when this happens.
All officers use the same excuse when they shoot a dog that's their loophole to get out trouble that they felt threaten.
Sorry, that I just saw this message you can go...

Sorry, that I just saw this message you can go to my K9 Partners Of Monroe County Page and stay updated on what we are doing.
Our sheriff department will be g;lad to share with your police department on the training and how they are making it cost effective that will be the number one concern with them.
Our sheriff Department is doing it with the Humane Society I had wish they would use Jim Osario or Jim Crosby.
See on our page we have lots of updates that can help other groups and we will support you in what you are trying to do.

You people are morons!!!! Know the situation before putting bullshit like this up. And trying to ruin someones life. Here is a thought, if u start something like this you have to disclose your entire life so you also can be under a microscope as well. My guess is that a lot of this shit would stop. Get a life people worry about yourselves.
