Fired because of threats. Well, well.

I’m surprised he has lasted this long after what he did.

How soon will he be rehired and back on the street? Either his union will fire a grievance or else as an prearrangement in order to let the peons quiet down.

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”.

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.

"That was a decision I know means saying at this point he is guilty of a criminal offense, but it is being investigated toward the criminal side right now," Traylor said.

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”

Somewhere, you'd think there would be a market for teaching prospective/current LEOs how to get along with dogs and understand when a dog is complacent, doing his challenge thing, or genuinely hostile.

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.

When I was a trainee LEO (a LONG time ago) my coach and I were assigned to investigate a burglary report out in the sticks. When we got to the house, a Dobie-Great Dane mix came running up to my door if the patrol car and stood on all fours looking me in eye as I sat in the passenger seat.

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.)

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 sheriff’s 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 officer’s response: “She tried to bite me.” Diamond was at the end of her restraint when she was shot, according to the dog’s 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, “Don’t 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 dog’s own backyard. Making matters worse, Melmo was on a chain that ended “about 30 feet away” from the officer, according to the dog’s 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, wouldn’t 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 Year’s 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 dog’s 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.

“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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
