The officer was not killed over two dogs. He was killed over an idea. An idea that people have the right to be on their own property without threat to themselves or those who dwell there. No warrant and the officer had no right to be on the property. The man was tresspassing, and then attempted to kill two of the occupants. Id say that was a criminal act IMO, LEO or not. They still have rules to follow, and unlike the show COPS, law enforcment cannot just walk onto citizens property at will, let alone threaten the occupants of the dwelling.
I would agree bettter training may have saved this mans life. Or perhaps he just thought "oh this lowly citizen better respect my authority while I violate his rights or else" which seems to be the norm among law enforcement these days. Well those rights just smacked him in the chest and now he sleeps with those whos rights have been violeted for decades now.
In this country, there are people who take those rights seriously, who will kill and die for those rights. This officers family will now understand that to the fullest extent.

Are you seriously saying that in America if the only way to access a property is via an alley (and assuming from this you need to enter an area before reaching a door)
to actually knock on said door needs a warrant? Are you really saying that?

lemme guess, RP in 2012.
put this on his web site, i dare ya.
the murdered cop didn't need a warrant!
he didn't kill the dogs,
he was murdered with a 12guage to the face.
leaving behind a family.
Nice use of reductio ad absurdum. I was proposing a private crime prevention program at a grassroots level and you are obviously delighted with the reactive authoritarian system in place now. Fair enough.
Freemansburg police officer Robert Lasso had pointed at the attacking dogs when the homeowner pulled out a shotgun and fired the fatal blast on Thursday evening.

When a law enforcement officer is responding to a 911 call he/she does not need a warrant. The officer in question had already received a complaint about domestic violence from a resident of that household and was trying to get the man's side of the story . . .
