According to the Rains County Sheriff's Office, Deputy Jerrod Dooley was fired on Thursday. Sheriff David Traylor said that it was for Dooley's safety because of threats. He added that it is the safest move for the department and the deputy.

Fired because of threats. Well, well.
I’m surprised he has lasted this long after what he did.
I’m sure he has been recruited by the BLM already. They and other FED agencies are looking for people his..... “character” Soulless, unfeeling, crude, evil SOBs.
We need an army of John Clarks. A reprobate like Dooley is a good candidate for uncontrolled decompression without remorse.
If you’ll mistreat an animal you’ll mistreat anyone else. If I could stand it I’d like to see the dash cam and the dog “attack”.
He’s a natural for DHS.
Fired because of threats, not because he screwed up and can’t be trusted? I think they’re missing the point.
So dummy with a badge shows up to the house of a burglary victim, shoots the dog because that makes the situation better, and instead of finishing off the suffering and injured animal he gets in the car and leaves.
Not only that, but he shot the dog in the back of the head.
What a cowardly and pathetic pos.
“Audio went out because of the loud sound of the shot”
What a bunch of crap. Just how stupid does this bunch of pigs think people are. Sheriff Traylor participated in this stupid attempt of deception and he needs to go as well.
Traylor, “We’ve had hundreds and hundreds of calls and its took time to answer them.”
Where did Drooley come from? The military or what? He clearly has the IQ of a potted plant.
So he wasn't fired because of threats. He was fired a day after being placed on administrative leave because his actions were criminal, if I'm deciphering Sheriff Traylor's attempt to talk his way around making such an admission.
Standard cop policy:
1. Receive call from dispatch to speak with home owner about reported burglary
2. Go get more donuts
3. Wait at least 2 hours before showing up.
4. Upon arrival look for dogs
5. When dogs are located shoot them in the back of the head only wounding them if possible to provide maximum shock effect.
6. “apologize” to home owner if feel threatened
7. Flee scene of his crime when he realizes he has behaved stupidly.
8. Call for backup to subdue home owner in case he behaves emotionally and blame home owner for an “outburst”
He shot the dog and the, cop lost. He shot the dog and the, cop lost.
Hundreds of threats?
People are obviously getting a belly full of this BS.
There’s probably a standard procedure card governing it.
Someone who knows dogs can even back down the latter with a combination of vocal tone, posture, and sheer grit--it is all about being the Alpha Male, not a wannabe.
For the Department which considered such training, the potential payoff in the lack of JBT bad press and better community relations just might be worth it.
My coach calmly said, "If you open that door, I'm going to shoot you.
The owner came out and corralled the dog and we took the report.
We couldn't, however, shake off some doubts about the truthfulness of the alleged burglary victim. The Dog That Didn't Bark (and shred the burglar to pieces.)
you have to record everything, cops just lie about crap when they know they’ve effed up.
I hate cops who shoot dogs.
He should have been fired for cruelty to animals and I hope he is successfully prosecuted for it.
I’ve heard that if your IQ is too high the Police won’t hire you. They claim its because you become bored to easily.
Right move, wrong reason given.
The sheriff is saying he fired him because he was receiving threats. So will the sheriff resign if threats are made against him?
Dooley should be charged with a crime and fired for misconduct.
So the sheriff fires him not because this coward shot the dog in the back of the head but because of threats for this outrageous shooting.
This sheriff needs to be next to hand in his badge.
Why Are So Many Dogs Being Shot by Police?
Just a few egregious examples:
Late last summer in Spartanburg, S.C., a sheriffs deputy shot dead an 8-year-old shepherd mix named Diamond who was tied to the front porch. Why did you shoot my dog? the owner pleaded. The officers response: She tried to bite me. Diamond was at the end of her restraint when she was shot, according to the dogs owner.
One night in April 2011, police in Camden, N.J., sprayed a neighborhood with gunfire to take down a pit bull puppy named Capone even as one lone police officer pleaded, Dont shoot him! Witnesses say more than 30 bullets were fired, ricocheting across vehicles and piercing a home. It was like a war zone, one startled resident recalls.
A Gulfport, Miss., police officer investigating a possible break-in at the house next door fired five or six times at an 11-year-old dog named Melmo in the dogs own backyard. Making matters worse, Melmo was on a chain that ended about 30 feet away from the officer, according to the dogs owner.
A Newfoundland named Rosie who had escaped from her home was Tased multiple times, then executed by officers in Des Moines, Wash. A dashboard video of the long ordeal shows officers wondering aloud what to do with the dog if they catch her then they conclude, We should just shoot [her]. They chase her down to finish the job. Another officer hollers Nice! when Rosie is shot. A witness says the officers high-fived one another afterward.
Everything was friendly and conversational when a man in Kingman, Ariz., left his 2-year-old pit bull dog outside with police while he stepped inside his home to retrieve his ID. He told the officers that the dog, Blue, wouldnt bite and says the officers seemed comfortable. Moments later, there was a loud pop outside. A neighbor says he saw a deputy fire his weapon as the dog casually walked by the group of officers. The neighbor also says he overheard another officer tell the shooter, Go sit in your cruiser and keep your mouth shut. The official police report claims the dog was charging and aggressive.
On New Years Day of this year, a pit bull mix named Kincaid was barking at a man running from police who had trespassed into his yard. Baltimore police shot six times at the dog; half the shots missed Kincaid and his owner (who was reaching for the dogs harness) by only inches. Kincaid died on the scene.
A miniature bull terrier puppy named Colonel, who had just wandered out of his home in a bustling Chicago neighborhood, was shot twice by an officer who happened to be out front writing a parking ticket. Multiple witnesses say the puppy was simply sniffing a tree about a car-length away from the police officer who shot him. Colonel is lucky to be alive after five hours of emergency surgery.
Baby Girl, a pit bull mix who was so sweet that one of her best friends was a rabbit, was taken to a dog park on Staten Island, N.Y., when a fight broke out between two other dogs. While those other dogs were being separated, the police were called. When they arrived, witnesses say Baby Girl got scared and ran toward the woods. Officers shot and gravely wounded her. Baby Girl held on through several surgeries as her family prayed she would pull through; however, she died a few days later.
Why do cops shoot dogs?
Because they can.
That rings true and is probably applicable to other jobs. Strangely enough, I have read that it applies to airline pilots. That sounds counter-intuitive since they obviously have some complex tasks to perform. OTOH, they are subject to just "riding along" for long periods of time as the plane flies itself, which could be monotonous.
What about the moron who was mugging for the camera?
When I saw that, I thought there is all the evidence we need to fire him for stupidity.
I have wondered in other posts if this dog shooting is being promoted to get the public used to LEOs with guns drawn, and in use. Like the Nazis did. When they showed up, something or someone was gonna get it...
My daddy always told us if we shoot it we have to eat it. If a few of these cops had to eat a dog or two this B.S. would stop real soon.
So now Dooley is a civilian with pissed off enemies.
People on FB are spreading his name and photo far and wide.
You couldn’t pay me enough to be him.
Hang down your head, Jer Doolie.
Hang down your head and cry.
Hang down your head, Jer Doolie.
“People are obviously getting a belly full of this BS.”
I’m thinking there should be a website that collects and displays ALL cop-shoots-dog reports.
List the shooting particulars, a pic of the pooch, any dash or other videos of the incident.
Oh yeah, also list the officer’s name, home address and contact info. Maybe even find out if the cop owns a dog. Include a picture of the cop for clarification sake.
They can count me in.
That's how my family and all my neighbors were growing up, only exception was poisonous snakes. You didn't take a life just for amusement or sport, you'd better use it or you've just done a bad thing. That was before coyotes started showing up in the area, though. Still, idiots blasting the life out of anything that moves just because they can and leaving the carcass to rot give hunters and gun owners in general a bad name. So, don't do it. Teach your kids not to do it. Shame those you see doing it. If they have a badge, it's even worse.
So now Dooley is a civilian with pissed off enemies.
He was always a civilian. And another c-word.
Hmmm...officer “friendly” shoots a dog from behind cause he don’t want to get bit...this female officer must not have got the memo.
Any person who would shoot a dog in the back is psychopath...and IMO, wouldn’t hesitate to do it to a human.
A resume enhancer when he goes for his next job as a “LEO.” He’s already confirmed as a pet killer.
Not too likely that he will be rehired.
The town where this happened is pretty small and it would be noticed.
The county sheriff is elected, not hired, so he could lose his job at election time by rehiring him.
The internet is full of those lists.
Here are just a few;
Now I see why the freak state hardly ever has this happen.
Seems cops shot a mayor’s dogs during a ‘wrong address’ raid.
There’s lots of cops running around out there who “feel threatened” quite often.
Not sure when cops became such candy asses.
He may have been a civilian always [and several other c words] but now he’s a civilian ~without~ the blind loyalty support of the force backing up everything he does.
In the latest development, he has now lawyered up and claims he shot the dog due to ‘lack of training’.
Yes, that’s right.
Now, *he* is the real victim.
I hope what he started snowballs until he is crushed under the weight of it.
This joker was on the news last night crying and sobbing. It was ridiculous, imho.
He probably lawyered up because he is facing animal cruelty charges.
Like you, I hope this does start a beginning of the end of what seems to be an expanding habit being developed by some LE...killing people’s pets for no dang reason.
You’re not gonna believe this pet/cop story.
His poor little conscience. /s
If the “remorse” becomes unbearable, he can always take the honorable route.
I personally think this might cause an upswing of rage killings by cops.
Bet you lots of them are livid the guy got fired.
They don’t handle anger very well.
Rather than waste my money on lawyers, if I were him, I’d be working on a new identity and plastic surgery.
That’s just wrong.
“We’re from the government and we’re here to help.”
I work with dogs. I’m having trouble imagining any scenario where it would be physically possible to shoot a dog in the back of the head who was “about to bite” the shooter.
Someone help me out here? I’m missing something, surely.
