These peace officers are trained to pull their firearm and not the mace, or taser or baton that's standard issue?
I guess he doesn't own a dog. There was no hesitation. By the way, I think it's pretty foolish to claim the dog was in 'full attack mode' since
his trajectory was 'around the intruder' not at him. Also, if an intruder approaches their home, what should the dog be expected to do?
This is not a question of the officer's safety. Let's see how the court handles this case..., whether or not the court feels the policeman was
about to be attacked, and how lethal force against the property of the home-owner was warranted. I bet you they settle.
Perhaps he should have stayed in his car and honked. Or is that rocket science?
