Owners Angry After Cops Shoot Dog in Backyard
NBC ^

Posted on 09/09/2011 11:13:55 PM PDT by Borough Park

-snip-

But Samuelson's neighbor, Fernando Perez, said he told the cops several times that Ozzy was roaming in the back.

When the security alarm system at the home went off, Samuelson called Perez to check it out while she made the 20-minute drive to her house, he said. Perez said he knew not to go into the backyard because of the dog and when officers arrived, he warned them.

"'Be careful. It’s a big dog,' I told them. They told me to go back to my house," said Perez, who repeated the warning several more times. "Before I get to my driveway, I hear the two shots. They walked into the backyard with the guns in their hand. Then they ran from the backyard like they were scared or something."

Samuelson said she got Ozzy to protect the house and deter thieves. Police have not said what triggered the alarm.

"He was our protector," Samuelson said. "He’s a huge part of our family."

Losers like these don’t have what it takes to be proper law officers.

It’s a job for men not little boys who pee themselves and shoot at everything that moves.

Good work. The police were conducting an investigation and the big dog was a vicious obstacle.

Suppose there had been a shooter back there and the police were distracted by the dog. Lives would be lost.

The shadow kinda made it look like like a dobes waist.

Regardless, these cops are pigs.
All they had to do was heed what Mr Perez said.

How frequently do they shoot people’s dogs?! Seems like every week we have a story about the cops shooting somebody’s dog. Who the hell do they think they are?

Obviously.

He was interfering with an investigation.

Luckily, he was just told to STFU and go home.

I know...that’s why my heart sank.

What good does it do to go check on a *possible* break in [because electronics *never* fail and set off false alarms] and then shoot your freaking dog in the process?

Did they suspect the *dog* was breaking in?

The dog was _doing his job_ and got killed for it.

What made them think they gould get in to see whats going on from the back?
Mr Perez told them there was a BIG dog back there.
The entire incident is preposterous.

It has been my experience that they wont show up at all for a burglary even to write a report.

They just say, “call your insurance company”

This is just wrong.

No, he wasn’t.

He sleeps beside me on his back, legs sprawled and in the air like a slob and he’d just woke up from a nap and gave me The Gargoyle Face.

[afterwards, he got the tummy scratch]....;D

Unless it’s a dangerous situation, the owner should be given a chance to secure the dog out of harm’s way and interference.

That should be the procedure.

Absolutely, positively, irreparably WRONG.

When I leave the house, the CC cameras start recording, the deadbolts are all flipped, the yard gate gets padlocked and the dogs are ~inside~.

*If* somebody comes in [and survives the Dobe] I’ve got it all on video.

I’ll show whoever does something to my dogs Hell *before* they die.

I wonder what the police are going to do when they’ve achieved their apparent goal of a non-compliant population.

I’m starting to think that the real goal of these actions is to create a necessity where the constitution must be considered null and void.

Well, it’s not like she was on her way to her home and would’ve had a chance to do so...oh, wait...never mind.

B&E, criminal trespass, destruction of property.

That’s illegal, isn’t it?

Your powers of observation are about as good as these cops. Read the article!! There was the big dog in the back yard, remember? - scary enough for these cops to think they had to kill it - what are the chances of your theoretical shooter being in the yard also?

Maybe the mob of shooters were holding the dog hostage and they accidentally killed him when trying to take out all the shooters?

[bet that’ll be their cover story, soon...the dog was just in the line of fire]

Not stationary anyway.

Criminals know, if they run through a yard first, they will probably get through the yard unmolested.

But the cop following up will be the one attacked by the angry dog.

Like hubby told his snickering friend after I’d told him I’d blow his head off if my dogs got hurt because he’d left my damn gate open *again*....”Just shut the gate, boy. She’s NOT kidding.”

He -never- came here afterwards that he didn’t extremely carefully make SURE that gate was securely closed behind him.

He’d even shove against it 2 or 3 times, just to be positive.

I'm sure that your hypothetical shooter would've had his hands full dealing with an angry 140-pound Rottweiler and probably would've gladly surrendered to the police to get away from said dog.

Ya know, I gotta say, I just love these idiot congress critters who think the Constitution is irrelevant. We had one here in VA a while back and he was a “Republican”! They just don’t know history, I guess, ‘cuz the whole thing was based on “natural law”. Hence, the TRUE meaning of “liberties” is things gummint can’t stop me from doing, like carrying a firearm. It can try to punish me fer it but it can’t stop me.
