Officers are meant to keep peace and protect their citizens, not strike fear or kill for whatever reason. There are PLENTY ways to calm a dog down that is getting defensive over his owner such as a taser; shooting the dog is completely unnecessary and is MURDER. They had no right, it was a public displace of displaced authority.
The officers arresting the man clearly KNEW he had a dog there. He put the dog in his car and the windows were rolled down; the dog got out because he saw something happening to his owner. That is what dogs do they protect their care-taker. It seemed as if the police were trying to trigger the dog, they rather have shot him than calm down for a moment. Apprahend the dog calmly and go about their business. They used force instead to demonstrate their destructive ways to their citizens by shooting an animal in front of his owner! That is torcher and is completely un-just and un-called for.
We demand justice and that this officers badge be taken away; punishment of murder! Teach in your academy's how to better attain dogs who are riled up, teach peace within your "authority", because without that peace there will not be peace of mind nor understanding. Only boiling hate.
Take responsibility for your actions.
