keep making excuses for trigger happy cops like they don't reside in your area, what a bunch of f*ck tards. its getting so bad out here, n*ggas are going to have to buy bulletproof vests for their dogs man.. god damn.

What's next? Cops letting off a clip into someone's fish tank?

fact is they are trained to handle pressure packed situations, yet they are blasting away dogs when they could have just had the owner calm down and restrain his own pet?

A good cop probably would have done that.
I don't agree with the rest of your post.

If you were being attacked by a rottweiler and had a gun, and you felt like your life was in danger, would you not protect yourself by shooting it? You guys are angry because you're speculating the cops motives; and I'd agree if his motive was just to be trigger happy then I'd blame the cop but from that video maybe we should leave speculations out of it. The situation does seem like the cop was protecting himself from an angry dog.

The owner was an idiot, end of story.

your whole reasoning is retarded. a cop is going to run into idiots and knuckleheads, that's expected going into the damn job.

keep giving these guys a pass and blame people like the dog's owner....that's expected but if something should ever happen to you because you step out of pocket....remember this.

im still trying to figure out what he did that would ever allow you to blame him for his dog getting shot. what if it was his child? what would you say then?

its so sad...using LETHAL FORCE is considered protecting himself now? as if there aren't any measures to keep safe in between doing nothing and killing people/dogs?

come on man

wish i could live without accountability like some of these cops

If it's his child then it's not okay. Simple as that.

It's not protecting himself. If you are doing police work and a random rottweiler is being very hostile towards you and interrupting your work as well as compromising the safety of the people around it, then kill it. That should be standard protocol.

Cops are generally out of control.. Its ridiculous.. There are many ways to handle the situation without killing the dog, but cops are like that nowadays. Not all cops are out of control, but way too many of them are.

People in here defending them wont get it until their reckless behavior affects you

Yeah but they guy kind of bought it on himself. Who when they see armed robbers barricade themselves in their victims house and surrounded by cops drives close to the cops and blares loud music at them. Then gets out and asks the cops about the lack of diversity (a legitimate question almost any other time). Then he refuses to leave or turn down his music. I am sorry I dont think a reasonable person does that, in that situation.

To the people saying he got arrested because he was filming the cops, well why weren't other people filming arrested?

I know people who are cops, they aren't superhuman mixed martial artists who can handle anything. Die hard/Super Cop/Lethal weapon/etc are just movies. Cops get scared all the time, they are human. When confronting armed robbers they are going to be super tense no matter what (you would be too). Also cops don't want to get bitten by a rottweiler. If that bit hits nerves/tendons, it could change a persons life.

There are lots of cases where cops behave unreasonably (Eg that cop in that beat a latino kid for saying he needed a warrant to enter his car), this wasn't one of them.

I am a dog person, but that shouldn't matter under the law.

To some people the inanimate objects are super important, it's irrelevant under the law. Humans>>>Dogs under the law.

I agree, cops are scum and they have done a lot of ****ed up shit recently but this incident is not one of them. I do agree that the cop could have simply tazzed the dog or tried to restrain it I guess, but at the same time he was just protecting himself. You guys are acting like the cop came to the car opened the door and shot the dog for no reason.

Did the dog not try to attack the cops while they were doing their job?
How the hell can you blame the cop in this situation and not the owner is beyond me. You can say it was excessive and I'd agree but I don't think it's unnecessary. Cop was protecting himself and they never asked that idiot to provoke them. They didn't even pay attention to him until he started to instigate them further.

You said earlier that they didnt kill the dog on purpose. Clearly they did since they shot at it 4+times. Or maybe it was accidental?

and also even if the dog tried to attack lets not act like 5+ police officers couldnt stop it with tazers, pepper spray or batons. Or even let the owner take care of it. They clearly were trigger happy and saw no problem whatsoever with killing it. Bunch of pu$$ies deserve to get a beatdown when they are off duty.

None of that is an excuse for the cops killing the dog.. Detain the guy and either have him calm the dog, or tase it...

Blowing the dog away is just a dumb thing to do, and you cant really blame the owner for what the cop did..

To me, it silly to try and take all the responsibility away from the person who actually killed the dog... The owner didnt shoot the dog, the cop did. He didnt have to do that. Like I said, cops do the same sh*t when it comes to people too. This is just another example of it.. They tase women & children, shoot unarmed homeless people, and you can usually find some people who will try to defend their behavior..

I know some cops too.. Alot of them are good people, But I also know their mentality.. The authority they have sometimes goes to their heads and they do things without thinking them through totally.. People (and in this case a dog) suffer for the bad decisions cops make and people shouldnt make excuses for cops when they make bad decisions. Their job is to handle these situations professionally, especially since people can die or be killed if they dont.

Nothing wrong with detaining and arresting the owner, but killing the dog was uncalled for.. cant blame the owner because the cop shot his dog... He didnt sicc the dog on the cops.. Cop just took the easy way out and killed it

Agree to disagree.. I think this is just another example of a cop blasting away and not being more prudent with his power.. This is why people dont respect the police.

seriously fckin terrible that the dog pays for his dumb owners mistake.

The police asks the dude to turn down his music because they are in the middle of a standoff and this @sshole leaves the music on and starts taking pictures.

Then we find out this idiot has a lawsuit against the police department already. So obviously his intention was to make a scene then he was hoping the police would rough him up since there were cameras everywhere. He wanted to use that moment to try to win a lawsuit but instead he lost his dog and looks like an absolute moron.

The dog never deserved to die and yes a taser would have been better.

Fck his owner.

how can you defend the owner? that moron didn't listen to the police when they told him to turn the music down. HE was there to cause a scene because he had a lawsuit pending already against the police department.

his intentions are so clear. Stop being a jackass and defending the moron.

SMFH at the people excusing the policeman of his actions. He killed a man's pet because he was in danger? He's a fucking policeman! He should be able to deal with moments like these. Even a taser or something, don't shoot the god damn thing. And he didn't even shoot it once, he shot it repeatedly. Shoot his leg once if your bitch ass can't handle a dog bite.

Honestly it looked justified. I love animals and I don't like the harm of any. We have to be human sometime and maybe it was the officers gut response to that dog, nothing more. It's wrong but what can we do? Perhaps a taser would be better but instant reaction and fear could of caused a gunshot. Idk what more to say.
