Okay, where is your evidence that this happens so often? Where is your evidence that it goes unpunished? All I see is you saying it. Prove it, fearmonger.


Actually this does happen very often coast to coast, since you choose to not believe it, I took the liberty of googling "cop shoots family dog" for you. It yielded 75,700 results. Feel free to pick a link HERE

Cop shooting dogs happens all the time. Just recently I can recall 2 other cases. One where the home was raided and teh cop shot the dog on entry, and a second where it was an older lady who locked her dog in a bathroom when police came to her door looking for someone. She let them in after locking her dog in the bathroom and informing them that she had done that. When they wanted to look in the bathroom, the opened the door and shot the dog. I'm sure both cases are in those links from the google page I linked.

Alright if you had bothered to actually read the post you're discussing, you would know that we've already been through that. Someone much more competent than you -- the OP -- posted some actual proof. Your little post is exactly what I had expected him to do. I was pleasantly surprised, and convinced that it happened more often than I previously thought.

Something you should know: Saying that there are 75000 results means absolutely nothing. This thread is almost certainly going to be one of those results, and once you get down to result 75000, you're going to be seeing a lot of zooporn and badly advertised Otherporn. A huge chunk of them are also going to be blog posts and copy-pasted news stories about the exact same incidents. Your evidence is the kind of awful non-evidence which makes discourse impossible.

Seeing things like this makes me sick. Those poor animals, they have no clue whats going on until they get shot. It takes a real twisted individual to shoot a helpless animal in cold blood. Anyone who can do a thing like this needs the same treatment bestowed upon them, period.

If anyone and that includes LEOs shoots my dog that might push me over the brink and things might escalate mighty damn fast. This "judge, jury and executioner" BS has got to stop and return to "Protect and Serve"

I find myself wondering just what kind of pussies are being employed as cops in America? I mean, if you cant deal with a dog without shooting it, ie give it a good kicking, what chance have you got against a person? Thing is, dogs are even more stupid than cops. You just dont need to be a ninja to anticipate them & put your boot right in their solar plexus as they spring. Yeah, mutt. Lets see you bite me now, whilst its all you can do to breath.
Oh I get it... Shoot 1st & ask questions later. TBH, I'm a bit surprised the kid whose dog it was didn't shoot the cop. Maybe he'll get him later...

you have to be nuts to call the cops this day and age. it's like calling the gestapo or a brazilian death squad.

it's more dangerous to call the cops than it would be to walk up to the guy and say, hey listen, you shouldn't be selling meat from your van, someone called the cops, you should take off.

and why don't people mind their own business. i bet if these same people saw someone dealing drugs from the back of a van, they'd be to chicken %#^# to call the cops.

This is truly horrific. Who the f$#@ would shoot that dog?

Was this police officer carrying pepper spray? If so shouldn't that have been the first logical defense? If not then we should question why when pepper spray would have worked and possibly have kept the dog alive. One of our local officers just a few weeks ago was attacked by not one but two dogs and used mace instead of his pistol.

I am not what you would call fond of most police officers, but I do have more respect for this one now.

Surely a warning shot would have been enough.

Let's even take the animal out of the picture for a moment. Discharging a weapon in a public area, neighborhood nonetheless, should be criminal without probable cause. A dog running up to someone is not probable cause. Keep in mind, if you read the article carefully the family had an invisible fence which implies that the dog was still on the owner's property and the police officer was not. From this scenario, conclude that the police officer's bullet trajectory was fired in the vicinity of, and direction of, other human beings. That is not just cause. That is a very dangerous way to carry out business.

Depends on where you are.

I used to live I a city where it was exactly like that. If youcalled the cops you were certain to be robbed and beaten. Raped if you were pretty. Everyone from the mayor to the governor to the state cops were all in on it. They tried once to clean it up and the new chief was labeled racist and run out of town so the city could go back to robbing assaultig and raping.

Where I am now the cops are more human bit I still wouldn't call them. Too much power in the bands of too falible men.

There is an old saying..............there is no situation that cant be made worse by calling the cops. Stuff like this just proves it.

I have never called the police and been pleased with the results. More often than not, they're checking your car for discrepencies, your home for illegal substances, and anything else they can ticket you with to generate revenue. They are more often than not, arrogant and self-serving.

The solution isn't to hatemonger cops, but to better train, better educate, and hold responsible those persons we call public servants. There is no logical conclusion that what this officer did was correct, or anything more than the result of an overly aggressive and hair trigger response.

I don't believe a word of that. Maybe the cops were corrupt, but the "any time, you were asking to be raped" -- that's BS. What the hell city was this?

My grandfather told me decades ago...

"That in case of trouble around the place, always call the fire dept. They are better trained, get there much faster and they won't mistake you for the bad guy and shoot you."

Wise words!

You can believe whatever you want.

It was in CT. I know of three women personally who were raped after calling the cops for help. One tried to get "justice" and the best she got was smeared in the city and the cop involved got early retirement.

One department I had family working in had a whole game going on with some of the cops with wagers and tallys. Nothing ever came of it when asked about it.

They are monsters. It only takes one bad one to ruin your life and CT is about 80% monsters and 10% good cops and 10% indifferent. That includes every town/city department up to the state police.

I have family and friends working within several different departments and from my own observed experiences I can tell you having a simple traffic stop can very likely result in your own assault.

Oh I almost forgot the best part. Nearly all of the "impersonating a police officer" assaults are actually police officers. It's the perfect way to get away with it. It wasnt a cop who attacked that woman on the side of the road. It just happened to be a guy dressed as a cop driving what looked like a cop car who we just cant ever seem to catch.

Yeah that's a bit extreme.. I mean it's a freaking Dotson.. Even if it was a biter what would it have done?! I mean really! I guess the officer viewed this animal as a threat to his shoes....

That is sick and, I feel that the context warrants ignoring the censor but I won't, screwed up. I did a quick google and confirmed that what you're saying is at least partially true.

However! That only applies to the Connecticut police. You cannot extrapolate the police from one state to all of the police -- the corruption is not the same everywhere in the country.

Still, someone needs to do something about Connecticut. Seriously badly.

You are so naive.

I could continue but police corruption is an epidemic in America and the "Blue Code" keeps most of it hidden.
