$5000 at the most for a dog. The only people who lose here are the taxpayers. No dog is worth $600,000
Hey Dennis, I missed the part where they said the $600,000 was for the dead dog.
Please point that part out to us.
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.
This isn’t about what a dog is worth. It’s about what a dog owners dignity is worth. If this ***hole shot my dog he’d already be dead.
Money talks to cruel and disrespectful meat heads (when common sense, morality and decency don't)...and voters have to pay for their employees’ screw ups.
Reminds the voters they are the police department's employers - not the bully with a badge. Respecting the property, individual rights and lives of others matters, even for cops. Here's one police department that will not be shooting pets as standard operating procedure. Many more to go.
I'm sending this article to our city council and Mayor. Last thing we need is a wild hair meat head screwing up. As far as I know, they are on top of this kind of crap, but you never know what training cops are getting these days from the crotch grabbing perverts at Homeland inSecurity.
Get off it.
A dog is a member of the family
Blame the cops, and the taxpayers deserve to pay for employing such a jagoff.
You’re an ignorant hateful person.
My Jack is worth your life if you ever hurt him. I am 62 years old; been there done that. I have been around the world 2 and a half times; I have had people shoot at me in anger and miss, I have shot back and hit. Prison doesn’t frighten me and I would kill you or anybody who hurt my Jack
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.
