Sad! Cop Shoots Dog During Child's Birthday Party

Officer shoots dog

The officer can be seen shooting the dog in this picture and in the video

A man in Idaho with Parkinson’s disease had his service dog shot by an officer who felt the dog was too aggressive. It was as the man’s 9-year old son’s birthday party wound down.

The officer came in response to a call that the dogs were on the loose. He shot the 7-year-old black labrador, named “Hooch,” at point-blank range when the dog menaced him.

The dog’s owner Rick Clubb said the officer was much too trigger-happy.

Adding insult to injury, Mr. Clubb was given a summons which he plans to fight.

The town is small enough to shun the perp (and his boss).

1. I would like to see a badly-behaving trained service dog. Just one.

2. The summons is just cover.

3. The chief’s statement might as well have said...”and out lawyers told us to make this statement”.

4. If the police in that area are so fearful of injury, criminals there are going to have to consider making a decision if they are caught- spending some time in jail as a rather popular cop shooter, or dead.

At this point, I’d be saying “Cue the law-and-order thugs in 3...2...1...” but they’ve been strangely quiet lately.

George Washington would have crossed an icy river, in the middle of the night, to kill you in your sleep, on Christmas, if you had shot his dog.

Apparently someone called the cops because two dogs were loose in the neighborhood “menacing” people. I looked at the video and I don’t believe that was a trained “service” dog.

Pepper spray would have been a wiser course of action regardless.

That was ridiculous. The cop had NO other course of action? He couldn’t have used his sirens to draw attention from inside the house to come collect the dog? His loudspeaker? He couldn’t have called the station and asked for a phone number for the address?

Absolutely ridiculous. No one was in danger. The cop purposefully put himself in danger. Then, he shot a *barking* dog.

If I shot someone’s dog, all my firearms would be confiscated in a heartbeat. I’m sick of the fearless way in which cops break the law they are sworn to uphold.

But if you shoot one of their service dogs, You go to jail...

This pi$$es me off. A service dog for a disabled person is every bit as important as a service dog for a cop. This P.O.S. cop needs to do jail time.

That's a dodge. It's a government union culture war waged primarily by native-born white cops.

How does a dog killer named Tarek Hassani get to be a popo in ex-urban Twin Falls, Ida. (just north of Jackpot, Nev.)?

Beats me, but the good folks of Filer are pretty outraged. There’s a facebook page (at least one) to that effect.
