Cop Shoots Himself Trying to Kill Friendly Pit Bull (Video)

When this friendly pit bull approaches a cop, the cop shoots at him! The cop ends up shooting himself, requiring an ambulance and causing quite a stir in the neighborhood. While we hope the officer is okay, it’s difficult for us to sympathize with unnecessary violence paired with breed specific discrimination.

Notice the friendly pit bull goes back to playing with children? How threatening — not.

Sick bastard! Glad he did not shot the dog, but himself

Dismayed that there are so many mean and spiteful comments.
It can be terrifying when a large barking dog is coming towards you, pitbull or any other kind. The dog may have been friendly with its family, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't have attacked a stranger on its property.
Sounds like the officer over-reacted and made a poor decision, but that hardly merits people being over-joyed that he is in serious pain.

Instant Karma!

I'm just glad this stupid cop shot himself, and not the dog or any of the kids!!

Karma struck this hysterical idiot! There was a high fence between him and the dog but he throws a hissy fit and sprays bullets all over the place! I hope he was in real pain for a while. And I strongly hope that he isn't a cop anymore. I mean someone could have been killed or at least badly hurt. How did he actually make it through police academy? That reminds me of a bad slapstick - not funny but pathetical.

lucky Dog time to remove the cop he clearly is not trained how to use his firearm properly. some inocent child could have been hurt,

They should take the gun away from that moron. Thank God the dog and children weren't hurt.

I am laughing so hard I am crying and can't stop. This police officer sounds like he has no common sense. Points a gun at an innocent animal in front of children no less, then shoots and hits himself. Hope he isn't reporting to other idiots and gets terminated. I am still laughing - make it stop!

You come on my property (which is also the dogs) my dogs will bark. You are the trespasser not my pet. Cops are such sissy boys these days. Shoot first, ask questions later. Idiots and assholes.

Angela R. “Too bad the officer didn't shoot himself in the head!”
Judging by his nonsensical behaviour, I think he had already done so!
