I think that one cop was just really enthusiastic about the chance to shoot something.
I find it ironic that harming a "police dog" in manny jurisdictions, carries the same penalty as harming and officer... Yet there seems to be NO penalty for a cop harming a citizens dog?
Had any civilian accosted and shot a dog sitting calmly inside and open garage we would be tried for animal cruelty but...
...because a busybody called 911... and because the shooters/instigators were cops it's ok?
I would really like someone in law enforcement to explain to us why these "blue light gang members" felt the need to do anything?
Is it more work to confront the 911 caller when the scene does not reflect the call?
...or does "getting your gun off" get you out of buying donuts for the week?
