    Fucking pigs. The dog was only charging them to lick their faces. But seriously why is this guy in any trouble at all? Its a fucking animal. It attacked so he shot and then had the human decency to put the animal out of its misery.

    Commons sense is dead.

    They're not allowed to make that judgement call and they're only allowed to use their firearms for self defense. Allowing this would set a precedent that they don't want to deal with, so he got docked some vacation time. Morally I don't think he did anything wrong.

    I don't think common sense was ever really alive.

    They dog was down and no longer a risk. putting it out of it's misery I would agree with normally, but firing 2 more rounds into a roof seems like an unnecessary risk.

    That's what I was thinking as well. Kid can jump in on this, but I think the officer's intentions to stop the animal from suffering were negated by the risk of a bullet penetrating the roof and causing additional property damage or possibly causing an injury.

    Yeah. If he did it to put it down, he was doing a noble thing. But considering
    he was on the roof of the bldg there's a risk of a bullet going thru the roof.
    That's a risk he shouldn't take considering the dog was no longer was a threat.

    Edit: Too late.... I agree with Motor Head. ;)

    I had to go back and read the story... the last few comments of a cop shooting a dog on the roof of a building threw me a little bit. Just seemed like a weird place to encounter a dog.

    Kinda sounds like the dog was in the stairwell, which is a little better since the chance of penetration into a residence is less. It's better to put the dog down but depending on the backdrop I agree it's not worth injuring a person.

    In certain neighborhoods in NYC, it wouldn't be weird to encounter a dog on the roof.

    It all depends on what NYPD's Use of Force policies are in regards to the Officers punishment.

    From what I understand the 2 rounds when the dog was down lost him 10 days. No threat = no shooting.

    And one more thing. This whole 3 shots and assess shit was never taught before the commisioner said it after the bell shooting. I never understood how that lie was put out there and, seemingly, never challenged. To control the line at the range we take 3 shots and holster or 3 shots and cover the target.. sometimes... Sometimes 5 shots. The word assess was never said and it was only to keep 20 cops firing all willy nilly.. It has nothing to do with this but it still pissed me off to this day. Well it kind of relates to this because you shoot until there us no more threat. So I guess it applies here.

    Maybe the dog was packing heat. You never know. You gotta keep blasting until the threat is neutralized. Amirite?
