QftP: "The officer, Jeffrey Slomon, saw it fit to respond by shooting the two-year old Rottweiler four times, even though it was clear that one shot was enough for Max to walk away."
Oh, What I want to say and make to that #$%&#

Okay, this was really a bad one ~ the video is clear as day. But let's not start generalizing about gun happy cops. These guys are wrong, it's excessive and dangerous ~ but please remember the cops that save kittens and free dogs trapped in cars and adopt dogs taken from domestic violence..........
You don't hear so much about the good guys ~ and most of them ARE good guys ~ because the bad guys get the horrible headlines.

We may not hear as much about the good cops, but we have to stop the bad cops. This was pitiful and not necessary to shot him four times. Not even a good shot if the dog laid there whimpering as he was dying!

I do agree with you Barbara D. One bad apple does not mean they are all bad. We have to remember this. Now, this cop should not get away with murdering this dog. The dog was not aggressive towards this cop or anyone. He let his gun do his work and not his common sense. That's scary! He needs to be reprimanded in a big way. The cop was not gun happy, he was gun stupid! Take his gun away!

Do they do ANY psychological screening of these people before they hand them a gun and send them out? He shot someone, someone who was simply observing? There is no possible justification for arresting the kid, the observer or shooting the dog. I can't define his motives in this but the dog, from the video I saw, was not behaving aggressively; I know a bit about aggressive dogs, having raised and trained and loved nine obedience and tracking (SAR) champion Dobes. The cop seemed at once afraid and desperate to maintain control at whatever cost. Instead of judgement, he shot. And if he'd shot one of my dogs for something as asinine as loud music, I would find the nastiest, meanest attorney and bury
the bastard.

Why would anyone punish this officer for killing a dog? We already allow police to shoot innocent people - even children and make no complaint. We have police going into schools and Tazering 7 year old kids and say nothing. We see police torturing suspects and illegally planting evidence and remain silent. We watch police arrest and beat civilians who attempt to video record police excess and mount no protest. You know WHY this officer felt he had the right to shoot this dog??? - Because when all of the other illegal activities I mention above were occurring YOU SAID NOTHING!

Signed & Shared! Also sgned a petition on facebook too for this policeman to be terminated as well as called the police dept to urge the dept. to fire him for his very cruel and action showing complete lack of important moral restraint which is so important in a police officer! I heard that the owner of this dog was going to sue the city and the police dept over this. I hope that he does and that he wins! I've lost count of so many tragic stories that I have read about
policemen shooting dogs who weren't doing anything and did not pose any threats! I hope that people who have lost pets by trigger happy policemen will sue the city and the police dept. for this very irresponsible and outright animal cruelty so that the city starts taking this unacceptable behavior very seriously and not only terminates these policemen (who are very dangerous in my opinion as they show themselves to have no impulse control with their guns) but institutes changes both mandatory training for officers on non-lethal methods of handling pets and promotes a "zero tolerance" policy for officers who immediately shoot pets when it is uncalled for! It is high time that both officers and police depts. be held accountable for these heinous and unacceptable
shootings! Thanks Cher.

Signed. I don't understand why this keeps happening. Of course It's obvious training is necessary and also extreme screening before carrying a gun. It seems to me there may be some kind of control/anger issue going on that no one notices. That's on top of NO training.

ABSOLUTELY SIGNED & SHARED ! ! !

HOPE OFFICERS ARE BEING TAUGHT ABOUT NOT REACHING OR MOVING THEIR HANDS NEAR DOGS.
IT's NATURAL FOR A PROTECTIVE DOG TO ACT THAT WAY.
HOWEVER, IF THE OWNER HAD TOLD THE DOG TO GET BACK & TOLD THE OFFICER THAT THE DOG MIGHT BITE, IT MAY HAVE HELPED.

ALTHOUGH, WITH THE TEMPERMENT WRITTEN ABOUT THIS OFFICER, THAT WOULD HAVE PROBABLY CAUSED HIM TO TAKE THE COMMENT OUT ON THE OWNER.

SOMETIMES GOING TO A PROCTOLOGIST HELPS FOLKS WITH SH*TTY ATTITUDES.
