Your opinion, who cares. Read and obey the sign and see the sun rise tomorrow; ignore the sign and see the bottom of a very deep mine shaft. Got lots of them around here, some of them are even full of water and debris.

fire the chief of police.

Many civil penalties should be just like criminal: toss the perpetrators in jail for a bit. It would even be good for traffic tickets. Instead of highway robbery, have a driver do an hour or two in jail or traffic school. The incentive to officially loot people makes for corrupt money motivated cops and judges. Justice does not equal a transfer of money.

Lets put it up for a vote. Anyone here think Donna makes a better point?

I prefer Norm Lenhart's point of view in this instance.

Punitive damages are. Too bad they can’t take it directly out of the pockets of the cops so that they’d really feel it.

Norm wouldn’t answer this question. Will you?

Can I come pick your pocket because some stranger shot my dog?

That is BS. A dog is your best friend a member of your family. The anguish of losing your best friend and a member of the family should be compensated for.

Compensated by the transgressor, NOT by we the people!! That's a huge distinction that you are ignoring.

Your little sign is meaningless, and I'll come onto your property any time I need to. I work for the utility company, and as such I'm a "licensee", as opposed to an "invitee" or a trespasser... I have the legal right to enter on your land at almost any time I feel the need.

(And you might not want to discount the possibility that I'm a better shot than you. You're not the only one with experience and training. Just sayin'.)

I’ll answer it. You may certainly come pick my pocket if the stranger is a cop in my town and his boss, the Sheriff, was duly elected by the town members AND same Sheriff believes it justified to shoot the family dog of one of our town members. I shall pay and then do my level best to elect a Sheriff that thinks otherwise the next election.

I would think the city counsel would be all over the Mayor and Sheriff for costing the town the cash and ensure that it does not happen a second time. After a few of these payouts, police across the country *should* rethink their jack-booted thuggery.

Well, yours is the liberal and trial lawyer point of view.

“Your way gets dead dogs and incremental increases in governmental overreach. Mine makes voters/taxpayers accountable for the people they elect and the laws/rules they govern by.

That sounds like the conservative way to me.”

Proper summation - I agree.
