I understand Monika.I pass on most video's myself but they just lie so much I wanted to see what actually happened.It's heart breaking and this coward probably has a family that respects him for being a police officer.
Bibb County Sheriff This officer claims that after he shot 2 rounds into her she got up and went towards him so he had to shoot her again.BS.The owner found her hiding under a trailer.This dog just wanted to run away.Please share http://www.macon.com/2014/02/10/2928165/reported-dead-by-bibb-deputy-lucky.html

If you don't think you can handle seeing the dog shot then don't watch.If you can, watch this cop do everything to intimidate this dog.Listen to how he talks to the owner.This happened while a birthday party for a 9 year old was going on in the home.Please share.The whole world should take a good look at officer Tarek Hassani Filer police dept.

Of course they've got criminals to deal with Jan, but it's safer by far to concentrate on Dogs that can't, and in most cases even won't because they're peaceful creatures, fight back. They're just Cowards that pick on those that can't do them any harm.

At least this pup got justice!! And now he has to pay lots of $$$ for vet expenses, that might hurt him the most! The owner will certainly win the civil court, too !!

One of the reasons behind the injustice the victims of police dog shootings receive is the investigations are carried out by the department that is being investigated.I don't believe they even do an investigation.Just simply fill out paper work with BS.It's not a big surprise (it's actually routine) that they investigate themselves and find (claim) they done nothing wrong.This petition is to demand independent investigations.This petition was started because of human fatalities where despite evidence the police have found themselves innocent of wrong doing.This has to change.It has been proven repeatedly that this policy makes it impossible for families to get justice.http://www.change.org/petitions/protect-wisconsin-families-and-honest-police-support-fair-investigations?utm_source=supporter_message&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=petition_message_notice

Very very sad , again.
These trigger happy cops - every day this is happening somewhere. Haven't they got any criminals to deal with?
YES Carol! I agree !!!!!! They WANTED to kill the dog !!!
The police reported that they shot Peetie in the front yard but the blood is splattered on the back of the house.Sounds to me like they followed the dog into the back yard.You can't follow a lunging dog.You follow a dog that's running away. http://www.kwch.com/news/local-news/police-we-shot-pit-bull-because-it-was-a-threat/-/21054266/24165606/-/13l1po9/-/index.html
If they're so scared of a dog that they start Shooting right away, we know what to expect if they run into humans. They'll be Shooting before the word "go" and that means there definitely in the wrong Business.
Already did these and did the one from Yousign this afternoon. Police officers really need to stop shooting pets. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you Monika.
Dear Carol, thanks for your comment and for your engagement to protect dogs from mad cops!! Its a serious issue and we must to fight against it until something has changed for better.

Already did these. Thanks for sharing. I'm glad that I live out in the country and the police don't shoot animals there.
Thanks Monica.I am a group member of many facebook groups and web-sites on this subject and receive a lot of notifications and e-mails.Of all my concerns this has my up most attention.We can give our dogs the world but how do we protect them from these trigger happy cops?We bring awareness and push for legislation but until then we just have to be on guard.A total violation of our 4th amendment rights.This has become so common place that it's almost impossible to be notified of them all.Believe me when I say that every day I try to fight for this cause.The last statistics I seen on this stated that Texas was listed with the most police dog shootings and Florida was second.I live in Florida, so this scares the hell out of me.As long as I'm able, I'm not going anywhere and will continue to try to bring justice for all these dogs that have and sadly will be shot by law enforcement officers.
Dear Carol, a list of shot dogs from Sept 2012, posted at the bottom of this topic - you probably saw it already. So many more dogs have been killed since then. My heart goes out for all owners who lost their beloved buddy in such a cruel way...
We need laws regulating the use of deadly force against our family pets.
I have signed countless petitions for justice on police dog shootings and it is heart breaking and infuriating that I just spent almost 3 hours signing more that I have missed.For a moment I get angry at myself when a see a closed petition that I some how missed and it didn't even reach 1000 signatures.I started a board on Pinterest about a year ago."Dirty Cops and the Dogs They Kill".I'm passed being polite.I have just now begun to see a little action on this board.Still little, but some.In seeing petitions with over 100,000 signatures and some with so few I just don't think people realize how often this happens.I hope that together we can spread the word that you can be a model citizen but if you own a pet it can easily happen to any of us.These shootings have not decelerated but have become routine.My dogs and I just want to thank each and everyone of you for your hard work to try to stop these senseless killing by officers who all carry pepper spray but would rather use a firearm.
Already did these. Thanks for sharing. The police everywhere should stop killing pets and leave them alone.

Shocking - law enforcement is out of control. They would be better employed tracking down the brutes running the dog fighting rings and the blood crazed lunatics who spectate. Then of course they really would have to do some real work and deal with real violence of the human kind.

Email sent about Ohio Police CHief
Subject: OHIO POLICE CHIEF STEVE SCHLOSSER ORDERED THAT CATS BE SHOT and DROWNED.
Prosecutor Rhonda Fisher~
1399 East High Street
Bryan, Ohio 43506
I was very shocked to read that Police chief Steve Schlosser ordered that cats be trapped and then shot or drowned
I want to let you know that trapping, shooting and drowning cats is NOT ALRIGHT WITH ME!
It is absolutely unacceptable that Steve Schlosser, Stryker Chief of Police, ordered that these innocent neighborhood cats be trapped and then shot or drowned.
Because cats are territorial, spayed and neutered cats won't allow other cats into their area after they have been spayed/neutered and released.
The result is fewer cats in the neighborhood and no new kittens being born. However, if cats are trapped and euthanized, other fertile cats simply move into the neighborhood.
I stand for a humane solution , TNR, to achieve a positive, visible, caring result now -- one that will, in the long run, make my community more inviting to citizens who understand the importance of doing what's ethical, humane and optimal in results, not what's easiest.
Please, don't just look the other way because that's the easiest thing to do. GET INVOLVED. Help make this world a more humane place. We need a lot more kindness, that's for certain. We need a lot more people with an ethically developed, humane attitude!

There are 97 pages on Facebook on dogs that have been shot by the police. This is an epidemic of trigger happy policing.
I don't think I would be responsible for my actions if some trigger-happy thug came on to my property and shot one of my pets. The shooting spree that is happening with deadly frequency is not only alarming for every dog loving family but should be causing warning signals in every police department too. It makes me wonder how many people have been shot in error or because they seemed to be aggressive.

WHAT DO THESE 2 POLICE DOG SHOOTINGS HAVE IN COMMON???
ANSWER-JEFF FISCHER,POLICEMAN,SHOT AND KILLED 2 DOGS IN 5 YEARS
Thanks for the information.
EAST VILLAGE — A pit bull shot by a police officer in a wild scene on East 14th Street Monday is alive and in a stable condition, officials said.
The female pit bull, named "Star," was shot near Second Avenue Monday about 4:16 p.m. after it charged at a cop approaching its owner, who was passed out on the sidewalk, police and a local social worker said.
Police said the dog died after the officer shot it a single time, but officials with Animal Care & Control of NYC confirmed Tuesday that the dog is alive and in the care of the organization.
"The dog is being provided medical care by Animal Care & Control of NYC and is in a stable condition at this time," said Richard Gentles, a press representative for ACC, which contracts with the city to rescue and care for homeless and abandoned pets.
The police officer had attempted to wake the dog's owner, who was asleep on the sidewalk at the corner outside a Kentucky Fried Chicken eatery, when the animal lunged at the officer, a police source said.
The man, who the source said was mentally ill, and the officer were both transported to local hospitals following the incident, an FDNY spokesman said. The officer suffered from ringing in his ears, an NYPD spokesman said.
Neighboring businesses, friends and residents who showed up at the scene said the young man had come to the U.S. from Poland, and that he and his dog frequented the busy corner.
Friends said that the man was 29 years old, suffered from epilepsy and had frequent seizures.
Lenicka I did the C2NN on the dog shot by police in NY,THERE ARE 2 UP-DATES ON THIS
tHE DOG IS ALIVE AND THE MAN IS OK
Over the weekend, NYPD officers shot and killed a man in Midtown. Today, they did the same thing to a dog near Union Square.
While we’ve been on the topic of Eddie Huang, we just received a call from the Baohaus owner about the peculiar gunshot he and his staff just heard outside of his East Village restaurant on 14th Street. UPDATED (see below).
Huang just explained to The Observer by phone:
We heard the gunshot, and we all ducked, and saw people running and screaming. All of the sudden, our chef, Mitch, ran toward the gunshot. He was like Yo, it’s that dog in front of KFC—because there’s always this dog in front of KFC—and by the time I get there, I can see the dog whipping around and convulsing.
Everyone around was like: Put the dog out of its misery. The cops left this dog wiggling and flaying, blood coming out of its mouth. They shot it in front of a public bus.
Another one of our employees was 10 feet away from it, and he said what happened was: The cops tried to mace the dog, when they tried to mace it, the dog lunged at [the cop]. And this is the same homeless guy we see outside of KFC every day. He never bothers anybody. Today, the guy was passed out. Other people were saying he OD’d or whatever, but he was alive, he was just in a hole [passed out].
What we heard was: The dog was barking at people outside of KFC, and people called the police. Then the dog lunged, and another cop shot it.
You can see in the photo, the trail of blood. The dog traveled. People were really really vocal, harassing the cops to put the dog down, and they wouldn’t do it. The whole thing just seemed really, really unnecessary. I don’t know what the protocol is for this, I know they have to keep the peace, but it really seemed like an abuse of power, an unnecessary one, and not doing it the right way. They really should’ve put that dog out of its misery. We’ve all seen Old Yeller. We all know the right way to do this.
We see this dog outside of KFC every day. It’s usually a nice dog. [The dog and its owner] don’t bother anyone. Everyone in this restaurant [Baohaus] knows this. If it was a cop from the neighborhood, they would know that guy. He’s there every day.
Again, this is the second shooting in broad daylight, in a highly-trafficked pedestrian thoroughfare of Manhattan in less than three days.
UPDATE: Apparently, the dog lived. Which is not, for the record, how Old Yeller ends.

The picture of the petition below is from the shooting in NY on the dog of a homeless man that had an seizure.
The dog was dying on the street but after a day a organization posted a picture of a dog , almost not injured , with the announce that he had survived.
There was a petition for explaining and a lot of people said it was not the same dog. About the homeless man , nobody was talking how he was.
I'm very curious how it is with the dog. Is /was he really alive ? Were we fooled ? What about the homeless man?
Does anyone knows ??

This problem is escalating and where is the law that says that police have a right to trespass on your proerty and kill a member of your family.

Cal- 6 hours ago - forcechange.com
Thanks Monika, signed.
Thank you for your email to Commerce Citys Mayor and Council I am responding on their behalf. The city is currently investigating this weekend's fatal shooting. The police department has asked the 17th Judicial District Attorney's Office to take over this investigation to ensure a thorough and unbiased third-party review. Using this kind of force is not something officers do lightly. The home video is disturbing and it is a tragedy anytime an officer has to use their weapon to ensure community safety.
You can read the police department's entire statement online and hear the 911 call and dispatch tapes of the incident. As the mayor and council, they are supportive of a thorough investigative process and look forward to hearing the what and why of this tragic event. It would be inappropriate for them to speculate further given the investigation is underway and they don't have all the facts at this time.
The city expects the results of this outside investigation to be shared with the community in a transparent manner. Thank you again for your comments.
Sincerely, Lysa Gallegos , Executive Administrator, City of Commerce City
I hope that the Wrights take them to the cleaners. No money will bring justice for Rosie but she will be remembered and it may save another pet's life. It is time the police were made accountable for their maverick trigger happy behaviour which appears to be on the increase alarmingly.
