COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (CBS4)- The Commerce City Police officer who shot and killed a family dog last month has been charged with animal cruelty.

The shooting happened Nov. 24 when officers received a call of a dog running unattended in the neighborhood.

When officers tried to catch the dog, Chloe, they had trouble. They used a taser and tried a neck harness.

Police Officer Robert Price then fired five shots, killing Chloe. The incident was caught on video.

Is there? I know there are other Joe’s but didn’t know two had the same screen name. Now I’m confused, too.

I watched the vid. The murderer-with-a-badge had to walk up to the dog to kill it after he tasered it twice. That is one STUPID cop! Of course, how many guys who graduate at the top of their class go to cop school?

If he gets fired from the CCPD he can always get a job as a union thug or a brownshirt for owebama’s “civilian defense corpse”.

No, that is not possible. It is *almost* the same - doesn’t have the hyphen or something like that...

Slap on the wrist.

These union thugs who did this should be FIRED - NO BENEFITS. They should be barred from any future jobs in law enforcement. And they should loose their right to own a firearm. They have demonstrated reckless disregard for the property and feelings of other people in its misuse.

The cop should be lying dead in the dog’s owner’s drive way right now! That’s the only way this stuff is going to stop. The cops have to start paying the price for their actions right on the spot. My heart goes out to the dog’s owner. This should never happen. What’s next, shooting unruly kids?

Anyone have names? Some of us may live close to there and can make their lives miserable.

I knew several in Philadelphia with master's degrees, community policing certificates from Harvard, even law degrees. They were commanders, but had all started out as street cops.

Only remember this link:

http://www.ksn.com/content/news/also/story/Caught-on-camera-Cops-kill-dog/gZ9McY8sQkCGDLbL71OKSw.cspx

I think if they have a public records law there, you could secure a copy of the police report which should list the name and rank of the miscreant thug criminals in blue.

Just be careful. Cops can and will make your life miserable if they know that you are making an issue of a miscreant in their ranks.

Their unions and training academies create a “them” versus “us” attitude.

Thanks. I will also try to call in to the local radio talk shows. Commerce City has huge management problems as well. The cops are probably worse than the crooks there!

Expat1000 and I were discussing if there were two Joe 6-packs. I later remembered there is a JoeSixPack, right? Two different Joe’s that like beer? Hugs, Mom

Yeah, this was overreach. Film is not very good, but the dog is on the pole and the woman still has hold of it - if so concerned why not the man hold it? The dog was probably frantic from being tazed and just spooking, trying to run away I think. I don’t see the purpose of shooting the dog.

This is good news. It’s an inroad to prosecuting the gratuitous killing of peaceful, in-control, beloved family pets by “police officers,” AFTER the “officer” panics the animal and pretends the “officer” is in any kind of danger.

That has to stop. It’s a form of terrorist mayhem designed to make law-abiding Americans feel helpless and depressed.

However it has managed to be a tool for making law-abiding Americans hate the vicious, and dare I say, DUMBED-DOWN cowards on the force these days across the country.

The mailman and delivery driver argument holds a lot of water for me. If they don’t have to kill every dog they meet, then neither do the “police.”

Good thing the officer was an expert marksman, all that movement, people everywhere, someone may have been killed./sarc

This dog killer belongs in jail for killing the dog and reckless endangerment.

Indeed.

Why aren't these stories EVER on national talk shows? You'd think Levin would be a natural.

FR has come a long way. Time was, the badge lickers would dominate and some other dopes would say, "It's a DOG, people!" or "You care more about an animal than a man who puts his life on the line for us!" Or, "What about the children being raped and murdered?"

Even the die hards realize that something horribly sick is going on in this country.

” Why aren’t these stories EVER on national talk shows? You’d think Levin would be a natural.”

Because many of the national talk shows aren’t willing to address the corruption and the scandal of this problem, apparently.

There are still conservative talk show hosts who firmly believe it is a conservative trait to NEVER question police decisions or actions; that only progressives ever find fault with police.
