Not dog friendly Colorado

In the last few months there has been an issue with Police officers shooting family dogs because they were "Threatened”.

Colorado cops criticized for shooting restrained dog | The Raw Story

Another one happened Monday.
Adams County deputy accused of wrongfully shooting, killing dog | 9news.com

I have to admit that I am a dog guy and if a cop came in and shot my dog I would be equally upset. The post office carriers carry mace in case they come across an aggressive dog, why do cops think they have the right to kill?

I have always supported my local law enforcement but they are making it harder and harder to believe in them and their actions. Let me come to your house and shoot your pet, a family member and see how you feel about it. Does this kind of thing happen where you live?

And on a side note concerning dogs, I am pro-pit bull. I have had several of them in my life and they are the most loving dogs in the world. I firmly believe that a dog is the direct reflection of its owner and that there is no such thing as a bad dog breed, just bad owners.

That makes me sick. If you're that scared of a dog please turn your badge in. We dont want or need your "protection."

Totally agree. And in neither story does it ever say "we asked the owner to restrain the dog or lock it up" and in the one story animal control even had a neck loop on the animal and had it under complete control.

My kids would be broken hearted if they seen something like that happen to our dog or even a friends dog.

Cops not far from here tied a dog up to a tree and then shot it in front of a bus load of kids. I believe he actually got fired though.

I remember something similar in the summertime. There were acupel news stories of cops killing pit bulls when they would go on a call. I only heard of it happening in the city though.

Wow if I was the owner of the dog in the second story there is no way I would be out of jail right now. That cop would have the shit kicked out of him for that. I'm really sick of the double standard officers get. If a civilian shot a dog like this they would be going to jail with heavy fines while a police officer gets put on paid leave for a couple weeks and is back to work like nothing happened.

The only problem with going after the officer is then all of sudden some how his actions now have merit. Trust me if there ever became a eye for an eye system in this country I believe a lot of people would second guess what they are doing.....

You wrongfully kill my dog I kill yours.....
You hurt a member of my family and I hurt one of yours and so on

But yes there seems to be a huge double standard in Police and gov't agencys but what to do.....what to do......

I know I will write my congressman a letter and complain......oh wait who is it that protects this guy when he does something stupid....police.......and who protects the Police when they do something stupid.....my congressman

If he shot the dog and you went after him beating the shit out of him for his stupidity there still wouldn't be merit in his actions but you would be going to jail for assaulting an officer because of his stupidity killing one of your family members.

Eye for eye does have its draw backs though such as if you really are innocent. But yes the double standard really blows because it ties our hands without being able to react how we should be allowed with minimal repercussions. Yeah congressman you probably read the letter if you got lucky then just pitch it.

Only time they should even consider to shoot the dog is if its mauling away at one of them, but even then pepper spray would work. I am pro pit pull to, it completely relies on how the dog is brought up and how it is treated. How could you say a breed is vicious, might as well say certain races are dangerous and we should ban them to.
