Excuse me if I come biased anywhere in this. Personally, I'm totally beyond pissed that this cop could just keep his job, and not get in trouble at all.
Basically, there was an issue about two days ago, where there was an armed robbery, and police came. Massive shoot out, something of the sort. Here's where it gets iffy. A man named Leon was driving down, and his music was loud. Okay, so it was rude to have it loud, but whatever. He got out of the car, and took his dog with him just to see what's going on. Personally, he was just looking at the situation in my eyes, but whatever. Cops came to question him, and he put his dog back in the car. The window was down. He was getting handcuffed, when the dog suddenly jumped out, and ran to his owner. It didn't attack at first, until one of the cops touched it.
Cop STARTED issue with dog by touching it, and dog jumped. Not really at a fast pace, and he missed. One could argue it was enough to pull a taser out by shown in this issue.
If I may, let me add into that video by saying it's the same time of dog, doing the same thing as the other video. I won't be posting the video with the dog getting shot, because it's sick. It doesn't zoom in, but the first shot even keeps it down. The first shoot makes it limp around, until it backs off. Cop continues TO SHOOT, AFTER A DAMN BREAK at the defenseless dog. Dog is put down, owner is crying and shouting to stop.
Here's an interview with the owner.
It's emotional. I'm saying the dog didn't deserve it. If anything, I feel the
pig cop should be fired and arrested, but I know sadly some people would disagree.
You can look up the video. It's being spread around like crazy. It's ruthless, and the cop shows no sympathy in the situation. You may be saying "WELL, YOU SOUND BIASED."
1. I love dogs. I own a pit/lab mix. It's a pup, it's defensive. It doesn't bite, but it does bark and jump around when even me and my friends are sparing.
2. I live in the city area, my friends are "hoodlums" that people look down on, who usually don't do much wrong. I've already had annoying situations with cops. This is also around the time I'm starting to think "Man, I might be TOO harsh on cops. Some of them are good people."
This just raised my hate, and I don't see it going down. People asked me "What would I do if that was me?". Hit it in the nose. Shoot it once, maybe in the leg [As cruel as that sounds, if I was the cop and I HAD to use the gun.], tazer it, you know.. like the one video I posted which is the same type of dog that did the same thing. Stun it.
I wouldn't shoot it four times, especially since the first time it already backed off. If you must, just look up the video. I had to call my friend just to calm me down.
