Have a protocol to follow on animals before they use excessive force

    1. Petition by

      sheyenne knox

A sheriff deputy shot and killed my family lab on july,25,2012. Deputy Thomas Downs had no protocol he had to follow, before he pulled his gun. Now this man, nor the department does not have to answer to anyone for the heartbreak they have caused my family. I want there to be more k-9 training involved in police training, a protocol they have to follow, and for families of victims to be able to get justice without the police trying to bury it.

      Cold blooded murder, police cover-up and a smear campaign against the owner and dog. Is this who you want 'protecting' you? If they get away with it once they will do it again.

      Because you just can't shot anyone even animals for no reason!! Protocol is in order. Make it happen!

      Because it could have been MY dog! The little doxie *barks* at strangers, doesn't "attack", and once told to 'hush' does so and then simply wants his tummy scratched. I personally have NEVER encountered a so-called "agressive" (barking) dog that didn't hush when I told it to. If the dog is murdered like this, the cop should be held accountable and should have to pay for the damage they have done!

      I'm an animal lover, and my heart breaks every time one is hurt, abused or neglected. I personally know of 2 incidents where dogs were shot where I believe they should not have been. I'm also a disabled cop's wife so I know what they face.
