Can I come pick your pocket because some stranger shot my dog?
How about answering my question and then I’ll answer yours.
If I come and wrongly shoot your dog under color of authority, are you supposed to just shut up and take it? Or is the authority that wrongly shot your dog going to be held accountable?
Since the law is that police are not personally liable, you have a choice. use the legal process to toss the idiots that created the shooting gallery mentality and elect people with sense, or pay dearly via taxes every time one of these cops blasts Fido.
Or just say “Yes sir, sorry sir!” and slink off into a sear-filled corner.
Politicians ‘change’ policies like this only when thrown from office or under the very credible threat they will be. Taxpayers only pay attention when their pocketbooks are emptied.
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.
Its not a stranger, its your employee.
Even some thickheaded broad who thinks with their hormones like you should understand that.
