Once again, the police have killed a dog who was trying to protect his owner, who was being arrested for NOTHING but filming a SWAT raid. The poor dog didn't even die right away but writhed in agony on the street while his owner was in handcuffs

I signed through FB and have gladly signed again! Quite frankly, I'm glad you didn't have the video as it reduced me to absolute bawling my eyes out. This was so unnecessary and at no time did the dog lunge at the officers. Prayers said for the dog.

Signed. I do agree with Animae that the man put his dog in harms way. He should have secured his dog in the car so it couldn't get out. I'm sorry for the dog.

Disgusting sobs. They are nothing but callous and cruel trigger happy rubbishes. Poor poor dog - there were many other ways to subdue him - he was doing what he thought was right and these filthy sobs had no right to take his life. Way too many animals are getting shot - these idiots should be shooting the animal abusers, not the animals.

Police shouldn't have dogs, every year they're reports of the Police having had miss treated their dogs in some way or other and don't seems to be punish for the death of them; they should be for they're no different from the Public.

I was sent a care2 alert about this so I already signed. It is absolutely beyond words how policemen who are supposed to serve our community are killing our wonderful pets with such a lack of conscience, and brutality! Every day, it seems as if I read on the internet a dog that has been murdered by a policeman or policemen for no reason! It is appalling and it has to stop NOW!! I think that an animal welfare organization such as HSUS, the ASPCA, IDA or ALDF needs to really focus national attention on these much too prevalent and unacceptable tragedies (that the police are causing) and through the media as well as helping individuals litigate against police depts who so wrongfully killed people's pets as well as getting new policies adopted at police depts. and mandatory training of police officers in using non- lethal methods in encounters with pets in order to stop this sickening and outrageous killing of innocent pets who just happen to be there when police arrive and these police somehow just cannot let them be- but seem to have almost a depraved need to shoot them!

Any (stupid) polices who did anything like this should be fired and get the same punishment as killling innocent humans. And of course, they should never be allowed to have gun again, ever!

Kim O (396)

Signed for sure. Thanks Genoveva. I blame the stupid owner for this too. First he should have stayed away from the cops instead of parading the dog around, plus he didn't secure the dog properly in the car! He totally had the chance to leave when he put the dog in the car but didn't. He chose to mix it up some more with the crazy cops. Seriously a bad move. Cost this poor dog his life. Stupid owner asking for trouble, evil cops. Very sad.

Agree with Kim O's comment. So sad for this dog! This is Humans fault oh so often this goes on. Signed and noted with hope that Cops stop shooting and thinking later- also, that owners put their "best friend" before them (oh that would probably be just a few of us here on Care2).
