Speeding is not a domestic dispute.
So its not the same.

That sucks, man. But that is still neither here nor there.

Let's try and deal with the facts as presented.

Assuming the full article is the one posted in the OP, please link exactly in the article where it says the officer was being "mauled by dogs".

edit on 16-8-2011 by Chewingonmushrooms because: (no reason given)


Please read through the thread where less sensationalist versions of the events than those posted by the OP who wears his own opinions on his sleeve can be found.

Thanks.

I agree the dog wasnt worth the officers life.However the dogs life is not the only thing the shooter was protecting.His
rights were being extremely infringed upon.He saw the unnecessary violence aimed at his dog his personal line in the sand.Wheres your line in the sand.That line in the sand is what people kill and die for.
Its time to take a good look at crime.Cause good men like this cop are losing their life and they are not even fighting the right battles.

I googled the shooting and there are different stories being told. I completely understand your/my rights, but if I was violent to any innocent person, I believe the cops should come to help the victim. This has nothing to do with rights, it has to do with a person committing a crime and a LEO coming to investigate gets killed. I do not understand how you come to that conclusion.

Link: Police officer shot dead..

A police officer killed while responding to a domestic disturbance in a small eastern Pennsylvania borough had pointed a stun gun at two dogs before being shot, court records reveal.

...and, the fact that the article says it in the first paragraph means nothing?



Think about that for a moment.

this is amazing. now every officer will think twice before pointing their guns or stun guns at toddlers, old women, incapacitated people, harmless animals, or puppies.

they need to realize they arent hired to shoot anything that moves in society. i mean clearly things have been getting out of hands when it comes to these pigs on powertrips.

this wont be the first incident, and it sure as hell wont be the last.

a BIG win for the people.

SERVE AND PROTECT YOU SWINE!

It has everything to do with rights, specifically the 4th Amendment.

The LEO can come and investigate, unless he denied entry to the property. At that point the LEO must get a warrant. There are indeed certain times (called exigent circumstances) where a warrant is not needed. These are:

*crime in progress or other emergency

*imminent danger to life or serious damage to property

Otherwise, the officer needs a warrant.

Maybe instead of getting a gun and shooting a cop in the face, he could have simply helped by get his rotten dogs off.

Whoever called the police are the ones who escalted the situation and got the officer shot. He obviously did something retarded twords the neighbor to be "threatened". And like most stupid people further enrages this guy by calling the cops...I bet he even annouced it like a little girl as he dashed off into his house.

The proper thing would be to say you are sorry(even if lying) to calm things, and go about ones day. Who knows, maybe the neighbor deserved an butt kicking? If everyone in town is/was aware this cop killer was dangerous, then why was he allowed to walk inside, get a gun and take aim at the cop. I find it odd that a cop would even be afraid of a dogs. If they were attacking him how would even call to his boss for support? I say they had no proof other than hearsay as to the threat and the boss cop thought killing his dogs might "teach em a lesson".

--At 5 p.m. Thursday, William Clancy called 911 and said he had a confrontation with a person he believed to be his neighbor. Clancy, of 126 Washington St., said the man was driving a red truck and had been speeding in the borough.

Lasso was dispatched to the call and Clancy showed him where the truck was parked at the rear of Hitcho's home. Shortly after Lasso arrived, Freemansburg police Chief George Bruneio arrived as backup.--Link

Nope, your point is not valid, because the man's 4th Amendment rights were violated, and he chose to defend them.
