That's Judge Dredd. Unless the irony was intentional
Can't have the man's name misspelled! Just kidding... it's like how I feel about the use of the word Homeland. Prior to 9/11 it was never used... too close to Fatherland to me. Implies nationalism, or at the very least, an increase in nationalist pride or the desire for such to develop.
While I think the SS uniforms were cool looking, I would never design police or highway patrol uniforms to look like that. Here in Texas, the Rangers dress exactly like you would expect them too. Cowboy hat, western shirt and all looking sharp and immaculate. I met one, who was dressed exactly like the black dude from Walker, Texas Ranger.

Well if he wasn't in the wrong why was he fired? and pretty quickly.

So since your 250 lb dog did something similar it was ok for this dog to shoot the one year old pup that was maybe a 5th of the weight and prob the 10th of the size of your dog?
If the officer was in immediate fear for his life, which I hope we agree should the the prerequisite of pulling a fire arm out and using it. Then this man was rightfully fired cause he has some serious fear issues.
Sounds like you are getting at the owner let her dog get killed to get her 15 min of fame or did I read that wrong.
And I am sorry to hear about your dog, I am sure he/she was family to you.

The dog should have not been loose period. [Owner is at fault]
So, for the dog experts out there, how exactly does a 14 month old German Shepard/Pit Bull mix only weigh 15 lbs?
Link? I'm skeptical of any such anecdotal evidence, particularly when it's being used to smear our peace officers, who have a thankless job.

A cop who lived next door to me threatened to 'take us down, take us out' for asking him to turn down his radio.
This was 14 years ago. He was a sniper on the SWAT team.
I moved- now I'm glad I did, I like my house.
Last year, this same cop was busted for manufacturing and selling steroids. I'm in this nice house, and his stinkin' now fat ass is stewing in a cell.
I think about him from time to time, and smile.
