Poor doggie... shooka... shooka...
This cop shooting a nice doggie was already posted Friday.
Oh wait, that was the wrong article from Friday...
It was either haul it off for euthanasia or leave it with
and you know what they would have done with it.
Imagine how many dogs would be dead if we had armed postal mail carriers?
I have been on calls where some of the officers (usually younger ones) completely freak out when there is a dog is there....on a routine wellness check where a woman had a little too much to drink and drunk dialed a friend...she had a young, very friendly Golden that wanted to check out who the new people in the house were...the one officer next to me freaked out when the dog ran over to make friends and he pulled his gun. I yelled at the officer to relax..that he (the dog) wants to make friends and knelt down to the dog's level and started petting the dog. Owner (upset) asked the officer to leave the house to which the other, more seasoned officer agreed and sent young buck out of the house. I occupied the pup...maybe a year old, along with the other officer...while my partner checked out the patient..who refused care... The Older officer was there for another 45 min trying to smooth things over with the owner/patient.
Lucky you weren't shot while shielding the terrorist.
Yeah, that thought entered my mind shortly after the call.
When my chick was a health inspector she got bit in the crotch by a pitbull... so her boss said next inspection take the dog officer with her. Next inspection comes up, they say they have a dog... and when they turned up it was a Chihuahua.

You joke, but you're exactly right. Government is the only one that is allowed to shoot unarmed civilians.
I miss Kirk.
They need to teach these trigger happy idiots how to look up addresses.
This keeps coming up over and over again. The standard is simple: do you feel you are in danger?
Then the shoot is justified. It's justified in the Zimmerman case, it's justified in the FBI/mistaken identity case that's being trolled about in the Boston Bombing thread right now, and it's justified in this story.
It sucks when it hurts an innocent. But that's the rule. If you feel you are in danger, you can defend yourself.
Here's a more important question: how hard is it for a (presumably) literate adult male to check a fucking address?
The thing is the cops ignored the beware of dogs sign, and also lied about shaking the fence, which I'm assuming is protocol?
Having been paid to trespass on 1,000's of property's (survey inspections for title insurance) I've only been nipped once by a doggie.
First step is to find the property in question. The mailbox is usually the first place to look, followed by looking at the front door. Next, always knock on the front door and speak with anyone home. If nobody answers the door, I'll stroll around to a side gate.
Whistling will stir most dogs from their slumber. If no dogs come to the gate, I'll open it up and walk on through and complete the survey inspection (with diagrams/notes for any changes to it.)
I've only had a handful of times when dogs have not responded to the whistle. One was a dobbie with its voice box cut out (drug dealer dog) that lunged at me. Good thing he was connected to a wire and nearly choked himself to death trying to get me.
Another time was a huge rottie (about 125#s) that awoke from his slumber and charged me. I didn't run, I just put my hand up and he stopped right in from of me. Petted him and made my exit.
No dawgs were harmed.
Pretty much if you don't show fear you are pretty much ok... went to the liquor store parked beside a truck with a huge GSD... who was loosing his shit barking at me. Just went hi buddy... he did a head tilt and I patted his head and all was fine.
Exactly. Wish they showed these 'cops' how to treat peoples pets. Cesar Millan's show would be a good starting point.
Yep a little training on dog behavior would be a good idea... like I have mentioned before dogs pick up on fear... and see that as a threat.
And the smaller the dog, the louder they bark. Even though they're one second from flying from a boot kick.
That's one of the reasons we had to move the bedroom downstairs due to the 3 or 4 barking machines next door that are on a 4 hour rotation 24/7...
He bit me in my vagina.
