Abuse of the Fourth Amendment

This petition had 107 supporters

A Federal Court has ruled that whenever a officer enters a home police can shoot a dog if it moves barks. To me this new law is very wrong and should be abolished. The Federal Court determined this law, and was in favor of it because of a case involving 2 pitbulls. You can read the full story here:

No dog should be shot for doing what a dog does, especially when you are entering a home that is not yours. If a dog is not attacking you then you should not be shooting it. There is no excuse for it!! I want everyone who thinks this law is wrong to sign this petition so maybe the voices for these dogs can be heard! Would you want a officer coming to your door and having your dog shot for no reason?? NO! Some police officers do not even have any good explanation as of why they shot the dog in the first place. Many of them were just scared. If your that scared maybe you shouldn't be a police officer at all! Do not enter a home and shoot someone family pet if they did nothing to you! We must sign this petition so this law is abolished! This law in my opinion and many others is abusing the Fourth Amendment! You should not be shooting a dog out of movement or barking! It is not a threat in all circumstances! If a dog is gonna harm you, trust me you will know!
