This is why people hate police... obviously the dog didn't and probably wasn't going to attack anyone. What's he going to do if a person is yelling at him aggressively? Shoot him? What about the thing he had in his other hand to grab the dog? or at the very least even a taser would have been a better option than shooting a dog that wasn't even attacking in the first place. Who cares where the guy is from and what his personal situation is, the dog should have never been shot. I hope he loses his job and gets sued, it's a bad world when you can't even trust the cops anymore. I know I'll never call the cops for anything because none of them can handle situations appropriately. This guy here is proof, and maybe not all cops are the same, but a good 99% of them are. The judicial system is more crooked then the criminals they judge.


So Eda if your animal gets loose & damages livestock, is it still legal for owner of said livestock shoot it? (figured I'd ask since you might know)

Kurt, you're comparing two completely different things. There is no question of whether or not the officers actions were legal. That is not the issue here. If I researched your "legal" question, I would come up with an answer for you. But it's of no interest to me, nor is it necessary to discuss or argue since it's irrelevant.


Thanxs Eda. I do know the answer now. Similar to our prior discourse also. I thank God you can't be near me.


Won't be teachin' that dog new tricks anytime soon :(
