Isn’t there any human crime in the jurisdiction to investigate and solve?

Clearly, they managed to reduce rape, murder and theft to zero.

Sounds like they have it all on video. I hope they end up owning the local police franchise.

Cane Corso’s can be scarey dogs BUT from the story, and supposedly the video backs it up, this dog did nothing to warrant being shot. For crying out loud the cops were called for a loose dog and arrived with dog catching equipment. I find myself wishing they had run into a ferocious cane corso that retired both of these menaces due to disability. Just like bullfighting, I am rooting for the dogs.

This is one of endless stories about cops shooting dogs unnecessarily. How can the public trust “law enforcement” who would behave like this? I get sick and tired of reading about reckless shooting incidents against animals and citizens because some cop “felt threatened.” They signed up to be threatened.

Such an assault reminds one of the tragic case of Chris Schulte and his dog.

it should come out of all their pay and pensions, and houses, and property. jail time, never able to work in any security, or govt job ever again. lose their guns and gun rights because they’ve proven they are violent aggressors with guns. al savings, 401ks, pensions, investments, houses, cars, etc, all forfeited.

I’m convinced this is a Benghazi Barry Soetoro tactic to push people to react.

He may eat dog, but Americans LOVE their dogs.

""Shoot 'em," Bruneio yelled before a shot rang out and Lasso fell to the ground."

Chief Popo tells patrolman to taze/shoot dogs just b4 the patrolman inappropriately in backyard is shot dead by dog owner.

An example was certainly made of George Hitcho Jr, who shot an officer about to shoot his dogs (on the orders of the police chief, who was present).

It’s happened once. It’s possible they’re waiting to see if-—or when-—it will happen again.

Sounds rather strange. In most jurisdictions don’t cops
have to complete copious quantities of paperwork after
firing their weapons?

In most jurisdictions, dog shootings are rubberstamped as “justified”.

Preparation for the day when shootings of Freepers will be rubberstamped “justified”.

i would not classify that as the same kind of situation i just commented about. the owners that had their dog walking around the officers several times and then shot by thm, on the porch, for the hell of it, are not like George Hitcho at all.

Just out of curiosity, why don’t I ever see stories of courageous police officers shooting cats? Are cats a neglected species? Does the EPA protect them? Are courageous police officers afraid of cats?

It doesn't appear that the "copious quantities of paperwork" is a punishment. It's more like a reward - the same pay for an office job.

One of the best investments you’ll ever make is a DVR 24/7 security camera system.

Mine has 4 cameras and I can see [and replay, if necessary] everything that happens on my property.

Recorded video tends to keep people honest...even cops.

I disagree.

Cops entering one's BY for no real exigent circumstances are not allowed to terminate dogs extant in same, especially given boss cop direction.

It's totally a fascist Statist attempt at peep control. George is a patriotist as it turns out.

I think people have to sue the cops personally. Yes, they may be in uniform, but they are still making individual decisions that they need to be responsible for.

it is clear the storylines here are not the same. the dogs were not behaving the same. the chitown cops waited 20 minutes to try to find some kind of excuse to shoot a harmless dog, found none, then went up on the porch and unloaded 3 shots into the lying down dog who then ran away wounded. the hitcho officer was responding to a totally different type of call, knowing it was a neighbor dispute asking george to come out and talk.

One piece of advice.

Get any pertinent video saved on an alternate computer, as you never know when those cops will want your video as, “evidence”.

Disagree.

The cop entered the back yard without legal justifiable reason and threatened the dogs contained there without justification.

The cop should of approached the front door to confront the resident wrt his behavior regarding his driving.

They need more range time...

No, they need to serve some HARD time.

Shooting any critter should only happen when said critter presents a danger to yourself or the public, or you're gathering food.

I sincerely hope that your comment was sarcasm.
