    TRIGGER-HAPPY COPS ON DOG-SHOOTING SPREE

    wnd.com / By Garth Kant / March 5, 2013

    Many people consider dogs to be part of the family, and citizens in Colorado are tired of police shooting those family members.

    It has happened at least a half-dozen times in the past five years, and now lawmakers have had enough.

    Two Colorado state senators plan to introduce a bill requiring police departments to adopt policies and procedures for dealing with dogs.

    Sens. Lucia Guzman, a Denver Democrat, and David Balmer, a Centennial Republican, say they want officers to distinguish between a barking dog and a dangerous dog.

    Balmer says, “Landscaping companies, delivery companies – they deal with dogs all the time, and they don’t shoot dogs.”

    The bill would require officers to take a two-hour training course and a one-hour refresher course every year. The legislation would allow pet owners to handle the pet before officers take action. It also includes exceptions for using force, when the dog is dangerous or there is a violent crime.

    The bill was sparked by a series of dog shootings by police that caused public outrage.

    So what are the penalties for shooting an unaggressive dog? Training is all fine and good, but unless someone contemplating shooting a harmless pet has some consequences to worry about where is the incentive to not pull the trigger?

    My buddy that owns Hellbox armory is a big dog advocate. He is working with others in colorado to have it made a felony. They are getting BIG pushback from the FOP who think police officers can do no wrong. After all it is just a dog they say.

    That's what I'm sayin!! My dog is a member of the family, not just a "pet". He has been a faithful companion throughout some of my darkest days, and I would lay down my life for him, as I know he would for me.

    I told my wife that if they come for guns, her 1st job is to get our dog into her crate. They would kill her for sure, because she would never tolerate a forced entry. This "just a dog" saved our lives by insisting I get up and follow her to the kitchen. Apparently my wife had bumped a knob on the stove while cleaning and a stove burner was on, but not lit.
    Woe be unto those who would hurt her!
