I can appreciate that and I don't watch cops killing videos any more. I especially don't watch the ones with animals. They all make me sick
anymore. But from comments from other posters, I'm going to conclude the dog wasn't threatening.
If anyone shot my 85# dog, the first thing I would do would be grab my rifle by the door or the pistol by my bed if it were late at night. And I
guarantee you I wouldn't run out the door screaming "who's there?". I would shoot first and ask questions later. Never mind the fact my dogs are
house dogs, not out at night and not vicious at all. I live very rural which only reinforces my stand on the issue. I have some curtainless windows,
my doors are usually unlocked except at night and I walk easily and confidently on my property knowing I'm protected for the most part. Feeling safe
gives you confidence and a feeling of security. The last thing I feel is paranoid. Many of you have alarm/security systems and always lock your
doors. Does that make you feel safe or paranoid? When you live like I do as far away from a town like I am, my dogs and my weapons are my security
system. And if I were to live in town, my dogs and weapons would STILL be my security system. My dogs, besides being my friends, are my first line of
defense. If they fail, I would immediately resort to my last line of defense.
Murdering your dog isn't just killing a pet, friend and family member. It is the act of a fatal attack which I would resort to in like should it
happen to me. I find it sickening when I hear of a homeowner who runs outside to find out "gee, I wonder who shot Max". I mean really? It could
very well be a home invader who wouldn't hesitate to murder the residents of house.
Also, I hate killer cops, these cops aren't just shooting dogs outside. I remember reading on here that an owner had a smaller dog closed in the
bathroom and the cop, who knew the dog was safely contained inside, opened the door and shot the dog.
I don't hate all cops, in fact, I respect almost all of them. Killing undeserving people and dogs, I have ZERO tolerance, I don't care who you are.
