There are too many stories about police shooting and killing family pets unjustly, and very rarely do you hear of them even getting a slap on the hand, if anything they get PAID LEAVE for a week or so, then its back to normal duty.
This is becoming a major epidemic all over the U.S. and is NOT ACCEPTABLE ! This behavior is out of control and must be stopped. If we shot and killed (even shot) one of their police dogs id imagine 25- life. Why should these heartless cops be able to go and shoot your beloved friend and get away with MURDER.
I am devastated and cant get the pic out of my head, I will NEVER "GET OVER THIS" Capone did nothing wrong he was simply let out by one oif your fellow officers who illegally kicked in our front door letting our dogs out. Both dogs ran right past the 2 men standing on our front porch facing perpindicular to them sniffing his own yard atleast 25 to 30 ft away! I watched this officer draw his gun firing 4-5 shots hitting, grazing my husbands foot putting him in harms way and killing our baby.
I want APPROPRIATE ACTION TO BE TAKEN AGANST THIS OFFICER, There was no reason to shoot a NON AGGRESSIVE dog sniffing his own yard facing away from ALL officers. Then, as our boy layed dying, the officers laughed like some sick joke or bet just won!
JUSTICE MUST BE SERVED!
PUNISH THIS OFFICER: TAKE HIS GUN AWAY, INVESTIGATE THIS INCIDENT!
PROVIDE PROPER TRAINING IN PET BEHAVIOR & HANDLING PETS OR CALL ANIMAL CONTROL TO DO THEIR JOB IN HARD TO HANDLE CANINE SITUATIONS.
