These cops went on nothing but HEARSAY and look what happened. A child WAS endangered and a beloved family pet has to be buried in the back yard now. I want to vomit.

So, they had enough actionable intel to obtain a search warrant for a nighttime raid and didn't factor in the suspect having dogs or drugs, or a family living there for that matter?
If drugs are involved, doesn't that automatically equal some K9 support? If dogs are involved, does that equal K9 support? I don't know. I'm asking. You say its different every time. Executing a warrant, that is.
The judge who authorized the warrant should be on the hook, as well as all officers involved, also the CI, probably the chief of police too, for allowing what will become a PR nightmare for their incompetence.
Another question that hasn't been brought up yet is, why is there a cameraman included with the team? And how on earth did this get on youtube? This can't be staged because its too FUBARed.
If you can bring the A/V guy in riot gear, why not bring the dogs? Don't reply with the predictable answer (we never know...) please. Have you ever seen dogs play or fight with each other? Pit bulls usually max out at 60#, german shepherds max at around 90#, and are known for their viciousness.
A pitbull can be brought down in seconds and put into place if you don't panic. If they bite, you can choke them in no time. Not so easy with german shepherds. I'd be more worried about the latter. Or a lab, or a st bernard, or great dane.
Homework wasn't done and those fake commandos all deserve to pay. Especially the one who filmed it all and said nothing. Then again, he may be the whistleblower. It is sickening, to say the least.

Don't be mad at the Cops , for doing their job... Be mad at the guys buddy that dime'd him out. It's obvious they got bad intel from a CI. You don't know what sort of intel was passed , you don't know if the guy is alone , if he has weapons , if has has buddies with weapons. when you make entry into a house the last thing on your mind is the welfare of the family pet. Once It's cleared , THEN you can worry about those things. I know PLENTY of guys that had to put dogs down because , douchebag drug dealers keep them in the house ,you know why they're there?... so when you make entry THEY BITE YOU!!!!
So I guess the guy that's dealing out of his house with his kids there isn't at fault huh?... And you even call for someone to get fired?!? C'mon!...lol
It's really simple , unless you have X-Ray vision , YOU DON'T KNOW what's in a house before you enter it , and things happen REALLY fast. It sucks that the guys dog got double tapped but sometimes $*** happens.

You answered most my questions very well, thank you.
My point is that a pitbull is not the most dangerous dog out there and is easy to handle. They run away before they attack. Don't be fooled by that feeding them gunpowder trick that only drug dealers use, which has already been supposed on this thread.
Swat should have had plenty of time to react being that they had the upper hand. Throughout the entire incident. Yet that seemed very unprofessional. I think eventually the will be quietly shifted away and just a settlement will be offered.
