Glad to hear that the dog was 'alright' and they didn't lose a a member of their family.
Thanks for the the post cause I as well saw this and was not able to get to it before it was gone.
Dogs are our family and should be seen as such. By the law as well.
If their Police Dogs can be officers and people can get time for shooting them, then why can not a cop get time for killing our family?
i was going to say something similar in the last thread, but then i remembered cops don't get in trouble for killing people either. really that is
where the problem starts. instead of being held to a higher standard as cops should be, they are held to a lower standard. all civilians are to many
cops is a target worth points for killing, beating and abusing.
you know for years people have been blaming violence on tv and in the movies, and even more recently video games for things like violence. is this
part of the problem in law enforcement today? look at how cops were treated in years past in media. you had Barney Fife a cop who couldn't be
trusted to have bullets in his gun, yet the Mayburry police still got their man. you had Barny Miller, a cop show that took place solely in the
office, yet without guns and killings they typically got the perps. then there were the corrupt, incompetents in the Dukes of Hazard, yet even they
with a lot of work by the Dukes would get criminals, yet again they didn't typically blow away those criminals. yet if you follow cop shows and shows
with cops up through the years you go from cops (or those on the side of law) using smarts to get criminals, chasing them down, shooing to
incapacitate not kill, and when they did kill there was remorse, cops talking down suicidal people, or those with hostages. cops would be stopped from
abuse by a fellow officer before they took things too far. to today where cops typically kill the criminal, shootouts every episode with cops acting
in an over aggressive manor and breaking the rules when needed to get the bad guy, and no one gets in serious trouble when rules are bent and broken
as they achieve their goals. in a hostage situation typicaly they take a great shot and put them down. is this life imitating art, art imitating life?
or even a vicious circle feeding on it's self? even in GTA games you can see it happen. in earlier games, yeah cops would shoot you but if they got
close enough you were arrested. now with GTA V they just shoot and kill you. it doesn't matter if you rob a bank, or even just accidentally hit their
car, end result is either you escape, or you DIE. we even have some of the most brutal police reality shows
where we get to watch cops put
people in their place, and of course in what we are shown the criminals seem to get what they deserve. is this a big part of the reason for our out of
control cops? growing up with the old shows, a kid might want to join the police to help people and protect people, but today's kids? do they see all
this glorified bullying by cops and want to join so they can kick the crap out of people? that is what we are showing a cop does after all. should we
instead add into shows cops that cross the line, even when they save a life getting slammed
for their actions?
