The term "idiot" fails to capture the psychopathic nature of this man.

These individuals are aroused by anguish, pain and suffering. He would do well in the IDF.

Those dogs tails were wagging

Their hair on their backs were not even up!!

Swear these guys need to learn some dog body language.

And that chief or who ever was on the video saying what would you do...
I wouldn't of shot that damn dog.
If they are going to attack they don't run right at you like that, they circle from a distance.
These pups wanted a pet, he decided to give one a bullet

I shared the initial reaction of the above posters till i watched the video. The cop was responding to a silent alarm, he jumped the fence only to have 2 80 pound dogs approach him, I totally believe he was in fear for his life. What bothered me the most was the reaction of the home owner. Surrounded by a large fend and multiple rottweilers plus a security system connected to local police seems paranoid to me.

She told him to put him out of his misery and get off her property rather than take the dog to a vet seems like some one mentally unstable.

You know, I can't wait if this were to happen again that the cop gets shot and killed and the resident states s/he thought it was a burglar.

The home owner had a security systems linked to the police department, imagine if they didn't show up to investigate and something was wrong?

Really bummed about the dog being shot and killed but there are plenty of You tube videos that show out of control cops killing pets I just don't view this as one of them.

If you don't want the cops showing up on your property don't link your security system to the local police!!

On a positive note, if i was a crim on the run in the states and feared a shoot out, i'd just keep a bunch of dogs with me and release them all when the rozzers arrived.

No way they could resist shooting all them dogs first, a swift getaway would be guaranteed.

Dogs run at you when you go on their territory, it is on you to read their body language.

These dogs to me did not look in attack mode at but in investigation mode.
Tail wagging and hair on the back down does not show aggression.

They show signs before they attack unless they are just rabid.

So we shouldn't have protection cause the cops can't deal with dogs??

How about we address the problem which is the ease a cop can shoot and kill a dog.

Did I miss an article on this btw? The link just shows the video, are you sure the system was directly linked to the department?

Watch the video!!! It clearly states the cop was responding to a silent alarm!!! It was his duty to respond to the alarm!!

If her silent alarm wasn't somehow linked to local cops how would they know of a silent alarm going off??? Magic maybe!!

This is a poor case claiming out of control cops, but a great example of a insane paranoid citizen. She clearly states for him to put the dog out of his misery instead of seeking medical treatment, then gonna act like this hurt her emotionally later ...oh please!!!

Sorry to say but if I was in the same situation and 2 rotts were coming on me I would have been scared out of my mind and would have shot both just out of shear self preservation, I was raised around rotts I know them well.

I get that he was responding, but alarm systems will call the cops for you if you don't respond.
Maybe it was malfunctioning and went off and the lady didn't respond for what ever reason.
Just saying there is more then one logical conclusion then it was directly linked to the PD.

I get the angle you are getting at about her asking to finish the pup off and then call it her child.

Doesn't change that the cop IMO should not have shot.

Insurance companies often have a dog exclusion in their liability section of a homeowners, tenant, or condo owners insurance policies. There is a list of dog breeds that are unacceptable, Rottweilers being one of the first 5 breeds to be unacceptable. Pitbulls are #1.

As dogs are legally defined as property, the officer destroyed property.

Will be interesting to see how this one plays out.

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.

I saw the video and having groomed dogs for 15 years, I can say that I would have shot them too. Make no mistake about this, a wagging tail means nothing!!!!! GENERALLY its means the dog is friendly,but one of the meanest dogs we groomed at work would wag its tail like crazy,yet try to eat your face at the same time. One day the owner came to pick up the dog and was talking about how mean her dog was,said he wagged his tail the whole time but had bit quite a few people in her neighborhood while wagging his tail.Finally she said to me,"I don't know which end to believe,his head which he is showing his teeth,or his tail which is wagging". I answered back that I only paid attention to the end that could hurt me.

Here is the question that came to my mind, why if she had all those Rotties there,did she even feel the need for a house alarm? I would think her dogs would have been a HUGE deterrent. House alarms are faulty and will go off when you don't need them too. Almost every police station I know about applies fines for faulty alarms. Some will give you one or two for free,but after that you have to pay large fines. (in St.Louis country it was $1000 a call).Police have long known that these alarms go off when not needed. I have even heard of them NOT going off when they were needed. No thank you.

This officer was answering a silent alarm,he had no way of knowing if someone was in the house still or what. The dogs from his view were acting aggressive. It is not like you would turn your back on them to go back over the fence. Turning your back on a charging dog is not a good idea. I normally am critical of the police,but on this one,I say he did what he had to do. She needs to get rid of the house alarm so it doesn't call the police out when not needed,then get her dogs shot over all this. If she heard the dogs going off,why didn't she come out sooner? She could have called them back.

I starred you and you've made good points. Can you or someone who watched the video tell was it the front or back yard the officer jumped into. Also to your point regarding the groomed dog, would you admit that is a rarity for a dog to behave like that, because I believe it's extremely unusual. Thanks

So if an 80lb police dog starts running towards me I am going to kill it. Because that is what the sheriff told me to do.

Tail wags can mean a lot, they do so when frightened or joyful. Those tails were waving right, that is joyful.
The guy got scared for no reason and shot.

These dogs had no indication they were going to attack.

But cops don't have to wait right?

Any reason the officer chose not to open the gate, which the homeowner says was unlocked, and drive down the driveway to the house? Instead he decided to climb over an unlocked fence that had a posting attached specifically alerting people to the presence of dogs on the property.

I agree. Idiot cop! Didn't know how to open the gate. Didn't regard the signs about guard dogs. Climbs over the fence and gets confronted by guard dogs. Shoot guard dog! IDIOT!

I thought it was pretty standard, when an alarm goes off the homeowner gets a phone call. That's the our silent alarm works, and ours goes straight to the PD. Did that happen?

And, like another poster said, if a police dog was charging someone, they would NOT have recourse of self defense. Police dogs are only as trustworthy as their handler.

It is not as rare as you think for a dog to wag a tail and attack. You should never take just ONE body sign from a dog. It is a good way to get bit. You look at the tail, the ears, is the hair up? Are teeth showing and how are they showing? I have known quite a few dogs that know how to smile believe it or not. The difference is are they lifting up the front of the lips or the sides? Is the body all tense? You can not just take the tail and say,oh its wagging so its okay. No its not. They dogs saw a stranger on their turf and went to protect it. That dog that was shot was 18 months old. That is an adult dog. He was old enough for sexual maturity,hence old enough to know to protect that property.

It looked to me to be a back yard,but I wouldn't swear to it.
