Cops shooting dogs seems popular in Denver.
Just watching the news tonight, Wtf...

I havent searched for the article yet but apparently the dog was not aggressive at all, shot it three times. This was after the cop randomly opened the door to the mans house. The cop was at the wrong address. Another cop shot a dog that was on a leash 5 times that dog was not aggressive either.

Sorry for random topic, that shit just makes me sick. There has to be something wrong with people who abuse and kill animals, sick fucks. I had the same thing happen to my uncle 6 years ago in Denver. He got pulled over and the cop shot his dog that was chilling in the backseat. It barked at the cop when the cop walked by, thats it.

This kind of shit makes me dislike humans more and more. Wtf.

I truly feel assaults, abuse, and killings of animals should carry the same penalties as if those animals were human victims.

Sorry to hear about your uncle's dog:(

RIP, dogs.

This pig cop near Denver shot a stay dog point blank after tasing the dog. In the video it was clear the dog was not behaving aggressively. He is facing a felony. Good! The dog escaped from a home where she was being pet sat. I saw the video. The dog was captured and not running loose after being controlled with a catch pole. There was not reason to shoot this dog. No reason to taze the animal either.

seems to be happening more and more frequently these days almost like there's a policy to terrorize people by shooting their dogs. strays. off leash. officer running through your backyard in pursuit of someone else. officer coming to your house by mistake. officer coming to your house on purpose. whatever. it's a disturbing shoot-first-ask-questions-later trend and frankly I don't buy the boilerplate "the dog was aggressive and baring its teeth" that all these jackboots put in their official reports (which seem to be at odds with witness statements in every story that comes across my news feed).

I've encountered dozens of strays/off-leash dogs the last few years and never once felt threatened by any of them - in most cases I've been able to get them and notify their owners or walk them home. I have no professional training in law enforcement or dog-handling.

this seems to be a rare exception if he's facing charges. although that's good news, it doesn't bring any peace to the victims, and unfortunately most of the time these things are just swept under the rug.

I have been charged a few times with my dog and other people's dogs. Best way to react is to stay calm. Most dogs are bluffing. I have found stray dogs separated from people are normally the least scary dogs. I think people's emotions are picked up by dogs.

My dog got into a mild scuffle once and was attacked by a much bigger dog that was on a leash. The scuffle lasted seconds and both dogs were off-leash. The attack was random and my dog was off-leash. He was right by my feet when this women walked by with an overweight akita. The akita is poorly socialized I see it sometimes. He is very aggressive and was on a flexi lead. He wants to attack and is not under good control. He grabbed my dog by his jacket and shook him while snarling.

I have never seen this in off-leash stray dogs or under voice control off-leash dogs. They either ignore us on walks or approach friendly. When I was charged I never felt I needed to shoot the dogs.

This dog in Denver was caught with a catch pole was not posing a threat anymore and was likely not when on the run. Tazing the dog and shooting her was not necessary, the public was safe.

the police are cowards.

True, a lot of cops do want to serve and protect. There are also many bad apples. I have experienced both types of Police officers. I had a cop help me when I was stranded on the side of the road. He even offered to help me fix my vehicle road side.

I had some cracked out cops enter my house with out a warrant, harass my room mates and they made me smash my pretty bong. The cops had bulging blood shot wide opened eyes and were acting like crack heads. I wish I had surveillance. This is the kind of stuff that makes me suspicious of people with authority.

Denver also has a very strict pit bull ban. It's like a dog holocaust. This link is what breed bans look like. Thankfully it's not the entire state. Pit Bulls are adoptable dogs where I live. It's horrible to look at.

They're carry guns all day. I'm sure they're just itching to pull the trigger, damn crazy cops.
