The dog just sensed his evilness. Nature attacked him, wanted to remove this rottenness from the planet. Sooner or later, it's game over to all haters

Get real and/or quit trolling. I really don't care to read anymore of your idiotic logic. I rarely call people out on this site, but you are really testing my ability to not spew profanity in a manner that would get me banned.
I realize that posting objective views on a thread like this will be called idiotic and/or trolling. You'r ranting does nothing to facilitate the purpose of a discussion forum where different views are presented.

There has to be some sort of connection that hasn't been made yet. A cop just stopping at a random persons house to ask directions? Something is missing and I think that asking for directions was the coverup to the real reason he was there.

Oklahoma woman to get money for dog's death

CHICKASHA— Grady County commissioners will pay $15,000 to a woman whose dog was fatally shot by a sheriff's deputy who had stopped to ask for directions.
Tammy Christopher initially asked for $25,000, alleging deputy Sean Knight "grossly overreacted" when he killed the dog on Aug. 25.
Her attorney, James B. Brunson of Oklahoma City, declined to comment on the settlement, citing a confidentiality agreement.
A tort claim filed in September accused the Grady County Sheriff's Department of trying to justify the shooting by claiming Christopher's dog, Bruiser, had been aggressive.
Christopher contended she never received any complaints about her dog, according to the tort claim.
Sheriff Art Kell said he didn't know any details about the shooting because it occurred before he took office. He did say deputies have the right to defend themselves.
Knight was serving a tax warrant last summer when he stopped at Christopher's house near Blanchard to ask for directions.
He walked to the front of his patrol car before retreating as the dog approached, as seen in a surveillance video Christopher posted on YouTube.
Knight shot the dog when it closed in on him.
"It was just unfortunate," Kell said.
