No, you're not a dog lover like you're trying to convey to us. We can tell you're just trying to save your own ass, to build your case. You're trying to tell us, that drug dogs are "evil", because they sniff out the illegal drugs, so we should kill the dogs, because we should be able to partake in illegal activities? They are cop dogs for a reason! They have a job, just like any other police officer. Yes, some police officers mess up, but for the most part, they have a duty to uphold the law. You shouldn't want to kill anybody who is doing their job of upholding the law. I'm sorry you can't smoke your weed freely, but that doesn't mean you should be able to kill a dog who is just doing it's job. Having a laugh at that is truly mindblowingly despicable. I hate to say this, but you have smoked yourself stupid!

While I am a dog lover, I do not like them being used a instruments of evil by the cops; drug dogs are totally different than a tracking dog or even an attack dog. N.C. got rid of all its attack dogs and changed them all over to drug dogs because they make more MONEY for them...simple. Take the dogs away and you lower the revenue the cops make busting petty pot users and harrassing drivers for consent.

You are delusional for thinking that the officer came to shoot her dog. Very delusional.
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.

A dog is a family member if it's your pet, genius. No one's saying we should love our pets more than our relatives, that's just dumb. But don't you think if you own a pet that you'll develop a close bond with them which is a form of love? You care about them. Or are you too thick to understand that?

Well, seeing as he was looking for directions in his own town, I doubt being a mailman is an option.

If a trained police officer 5 times the size of this dog, being attacked from the front, with multiple weapons at his disposal cannot figure out a way to defend himself without using his gun, then he needs to lose his job, and start flipping burgers. He doesn't even deserve to be a mailman!!
