This trigger happy cop is a disgrace to the badge, and so are other officers and the sheriff for not firing this deputy. It is time for police to use NONLETHAL methods first, and to be fired and charged with felony animal cruelty when they kill our pets for no reason.
I am an avid dog lover & the senseless killing of dogs RELLY pisses me off. If we didn't have so many COWARDS carrying guns, we wouldn't have this problem! EVERYONE KNOWS, except a coward, that golden retrievers ARE NOT aggressive AT ALL. I don't think they can even be trained to be vicious, can they? I've not seen or heard of one yet!!!!!!
I live in UK where our officers are not armed as the norm. If they can cope with so-called aggressive dogs without the need to shoot and kill them, then I don't see the need for it in USA. Most of the cases I have read about, where family pets have been killed, seem totally unjustified in my opinion. I'm glad I live in UK, as too many officers in USA come across a trigger happy cowards, with no common sense and no compassion. I hope there is some justice for Big Daddy and all the others who have suffered similar fates.
This has to stop. It has been perpetuated for far too long. Each time we turn our backs on these crimes, we are giving permission to someone to be a bully and use other people or animals as scapegoats. Stop this craziness NOW!
