Skip to comments.Caught on camera: Cops kill dog (AFTER being tethered to catch pole by animal control officer)
Posted on 11/27/2012 11:34:39 AM PST by Arthurio
Residents of a Commerce City, Colorado neighborhood say police went too far when they shot a dog on Saturday.
The moments before the dog was shot to death were recorded by a neighbor on a cell phone.
When Kenny Collins called police about an unfamiliar dog loose in his neighborhood, he had no idea his neighbor was dog sitting for a relative.
He had no idea it would end with the dog dead.
"I called police because I saw a dog wandering loose out front," Collins said.
Collins' neighbor was watching a large breed dog for her cousin who was out of town for the holidays. The woman, who did not want to comment at this time, said she left the 3-year-old dog named Chloe in the garage when she left to go shopping. She thought she closed the garage upon leaving, but it seems the dog tripped the sensor forcing the garage door open. That's when Chloe started roaming the neighborhood.
"He never came at me in an aggressive manner," Collins said.
He said he never feared the dog, but just wanted animal control to pick it up since it was loose. But, when two police officers arrived, things took a different turn. Collins' son shot video with a cell phone of the whole incident.
"He's basically back in the garage or whatever, staying away from police," Collins said.
Collins said for about 30 minutes, the dog just sat inside the open garage door near her bed while officers decided what to do.

A human could very easily have been killed.
:: “I called police because I saw a dog wandering loose out front,” Collins said. ::
Poor baby! “It’s not my fault!” Would you have called if you saw a neighbor wearing a gun on their hip too?
Civic duty; pshaw.
Pull up your big-boy panties and find out to whom the dog belongs before calling in the “compliance at the point of a gun” folks.
Just another hero shooting the dogs other people aren’t strong enough to shoot.
That’s what i was wondering. Why the heck do you call 911 just because a dog is wandering around. Animal control MAYBE but 911???
One less pit bull.
I hope this cop’s career ends quickly. He’s a menace.
The police officer is solely and 100% responsible for his actions. Who called animal control or etc. is totally irrelevant.
This is practice.
The animal control vehicle was struck by a stray bullet and there were people and kids all over the neighborhood.
Another cop who should not be a cop.
Well, he's more likely to receive a commendation for his "heroism." If he does face action, union rules will ensure that he has able to retire on full salary for stress disability leave due to the trauma of seeing a dog die.
Well, the cop was primarily at fault. But it still makes no sense to call 911 because you see a loose, well-behaved dog walking down the street.
I agree... Heck the dog was in the back of its owners garage standing next to its bed when they place a noose around its neck and tasered it. The should allow the officer the same experience so he learns compassion... No bullets, just taser!
Good Thing Kenny had his Obama-phone to record the event.
Not a pit. Even if it was, that dog was scared and hanging by its bed until she was shot. Then after they grabbed her on the catch pole, the cop shot four more times, hitting the animal control vehicle in the street where bystanders were watching.
Cops are the ones off the leash.
Not in the least. This mope, depending on the nanny state is culpable.
Some of these guys won’t have any compassion no matter what you do. I remember reading a study where a psychologist concluded that anyone who wanted to be a police officer should be prohibited from being a police officer because they were overwhelmingly shown to be people with control issues. Not that all police are sociopaths, but after years of seeing their behavior in New Orleans after Katrina and of a few years of seeing how “Shoot the dog!” is an official cop pastime it is quite clear that too many cops are, indeed, sociopaths.
30 minutes just watching a dog?! Must be nice to be on the tax-payers' dime with no accountability of how working hours are spent.
Here’s a crazy idea... grab a piece of meat, toss it to the dog to eat, walk inside the garage, tap the garage button, and walk out as the garage door closes.
Muslims and dhimmi’s hate dogs.
Earlier in my career I spent a number of years doing comprehensive psychological evaluations of applicants to local police forces. Your statement is false, and I challenge whether any such "study" ever existed. Lots of psychologists are liberal morons, to be sure, and may hold that private opinion, but there is no study characterizing police officers this way.
Are there bad cops? Of course. We sometimes rendered a "do not hire" recommendation to our departments. They universally followed this guidance in the small number of cases where it was indicated. So what happened to these psychological rejects? They got jobs with departments that didn't bother using serious psychological evaluations.
There are too many anecdotes like this to be ignored. Either there is something wrong with modern police training, or the pool of applicants isn’t what it should be.
You can read the hilarious article here:
Some lady made a good point on here once. Helicopter Moms terrorize kids about so many things that a lot of us grow up afraid of dogs.
And a lot of people are mentally ill and fear and despise animals.
When I was a kid, when a dog would wander onto the playground, the school would hustle us indoors and call the dog catcher. I'm sure it's worse now. I always protested and I'm sure that went on my record.
You know, seeing as pretty much any delivery service will bring food to your doorstep in well under 30 minutes, that sounds pretty smart. Guess you’re not a public employee.
One less loyal friend and protector.
That is one of the more disgusting dog killings I’ve heard of. The video would not load for me, probably because of my ad blocker, but the description was enough.
That moron cop does not even know basic gun rules like, “Know your target AND WHAT’S BEHIND IT.” And to murder someone’s beloved pet for no reason at all should be punishable by being cashiered and barred for life from ever working in law enforcement or even as a security guard.
These thugs should be stopped from doing these heinous killings, if not by their thug bosses, then by the dogs’ owners, friends and neighbors. SSS, FGS.
Brutishness, limited life experience, and limited IQ seems to be a prerequisite for becoming a police officer these days. I’ve known some great people who were/are cops, in college, from work and church. I wonder what they think about all this brutishness. A sheriff friend made a point of rescuing stray dogs and finding homes for them. Two of the dogs I’ve been blessed with came from him. He is gone now, and I’m glad he doesn’t have to read about this crap.
And these Neanderthals don’t want us to have guns. # ‘em
I can only imagine the outrage that would be generated if our soldiers in Afganistan were recorded treating a domestic animal in the same way....
I sleep with a pit bull every night. Best dog in the world.
You've got issues that should be professionally addressed.
Muslims, dhimmis and faggots hate dogs, especially pit bulls.
Which combination are you?
Or any animal. Animal cruelty is a crime, and cops should not be above that law.
I’m truly too disgusted for words about these thug-cop, animal-abuser horror stories.
Our troops love their animals, and they mutually depend upon each other for the protection of their lives.
(covering my eyes) I’m not going to look; I’m not going to look!
Pit Bulls are not the problem the owners are, and your remark is stupid and cruel
If those Rambo-wannabes are so damned keen to kill something, they should join the army and fight in Afghanistan.
“Cops are the ones off the leash.”
I was listening to Peter Boyles this morning on the way to work and the “Chief” said that the officer “Followed Procedures”. Some elderly woman called in to the show and said something to the effect that the cops we have now are “pussies”. LOL!
Dog's dead and the neighbor's probably in jail for recording it.
