im a dog lover.
my dog is one of my best friends & she will never be put in a situation where that could happen to her. being a responsible pet owner usually keeps this from happening.
this may not have been the dogs fault & it probably wasnt... maybe they should have shot the owner too.... but thats irrelevant.
the cops first responsibility is to go home safe every day to his family. his next one is to the situation he enters.
my other 2 best friends are a cop & an ex military cop.... both of them have been bitten on multiple occasions.... both of them have shot dogs because they felt like they needed to at the time.
im for cops shooting dogs anytime they feel threatened... right or wrong its better to be safe & sorry than dead or injured.
im also for cops shooting people anytime they feel threatened..... same thing apply's because for the most part.......... people are just no good.
its a thankless job.... for low pay... while they risk their life for a bunch of people who dont appreciate it.
