Cop Shoots Service Dog During Kid's Birthday Party
2012 Reason Foundation ^ | Feb. 11, 2014 2:03 pm | Zenon Evans

Posted on 02/11/2014 5:50:18 PM PST by Behind Liberal Lines

On Saturday, a police officer in Filer, Idaho responded to a call about two dogs running around without leashes on a suburban street. Thirty-eight seconds after exiting his patrol car, Officer Tarek Hassani determined that one of the animals was too aggressive and fatally shot it in the front yard of its owner's house. A video ...shows the 7-year-old black labrador convulsing and whimpering before moving out of the dash cam's line of sight.

The dog, named “Hooch,” belonged to Rick Clubb, who says he suffers from Parkinson's disease and that Hooch was his trained service animal. At the time of the shooting, Clubb was apparently inside, hosting his 9-year-old son's birthday party....

Police Chief Tim Reeves explained to a local Fox affiliate, "My decision was that [Hassani] did a good job and he was totally justified in putting the dog down."

And the cops create another throng of resentful citizens, who will never again lift a finger to help them.

If a citizen shoots a cop's dog, he gets 35 years in prison. I think our "governments" need to be adjusted.

A 7-year-old black labrador trained as a service dog was interpreted as too aggressive? This cop is either a liar who likes to kill or a limp-wristed sissy who became a cop for the fantasy because he liked the village people and he hoped other cops would protect him (among other things). Disgusting and despicable.

What the HELL is up with this? Why have American police decided that dogs are fair game? They seem to have gotten this memo around pretty universally. Maybe they voted it in at the last copper convention or something.

Sometimes shooting a dog is justified, but there are just too many cases for this trend to be a string of coincidences.

Moslems hate dogs. They hate black dogs in particular.

Officer Tarek Hassani - any clues here?

One day, a enforcer is going to shoot at someone’s dog and the someone is going to shoot back.

Sorry.
Not buying this totally bogus sob story.
The "service dog" meme fails; the dog was outside running loose. Not much servicing (or the phony need for it) in evidence. Irresponsible dog owners are an epidemic.

Evidently some neighbors, much closer to the problem than the author of this phony story, thought there was enough of concern to call the authorities.

First off, this is not something the police are supposed to handle, unless the dogs are threatening people. It should be handled by animal control because they are equipped to deal with it without shooting the animals. Everywhere I have lived the police make it quite clear they are not dealing with dogs unless there is genuine danger to people. This was totally uncalled for in dealing with a loose dog that wasn’t threatening anyone.

The officer is a jack booted idiot, his superior is a jerk backing an idiot.

I listened to how he talked to the owner after he shot the dog. IMO the prick went there with the intention of kicking ass in some fashion.

There was no indication that the dog was threatening humans, just running loose. Which should be dealt with. But this was not a police matter, it was an animal control matter. Forget the service dog stuff, that’s baloney.

Most dogs will growl at strangers intruding on their territory. That is perfectly normal.

You go onto someone’s property unannounced, knowing they have a dog, you better expect to be growled at. That doesn’t give you the right to shoot the dog in its own yard.

Tip o’ the day: If you live in a town that has anything that even remotely resembles an “Officer Tarek Hassani”... move.

Ditto if you live in a country that has anything remotely resembling a President “Tarek Hassani Obama”.

if a cop kills a police dog - like letting it roast and die in a squad car - they get a write-up, no job loss, no jail time.

It's amazing to me that this type of story is now routine. Also routine is the Chief or some supervisor saying that the JBT did the right thing.

It reminded me of an article that I read this morning which to me shows that some of them think they are above the law.
Article here: http://www.naplesnews.com/news/2014/feb/11/florida-highway-patrol-trooper-who-stopped-and-arr/
In a nutshell, it is about a Florida Highway Patrol trooper who pulled over what turned out to be a police officer going 120 MPH in his personal car. She (the trooper) cuffs him, news and video gets out and he is fired.
Later she gets harassed at her home and gets harassing calls on her cell phone. Turns out other cops illegally accessed her driver's license data and used the information to harass her.
She is suing those agencies and officers under a law that allows for $2500 penalties for each violation.
Here's the kicker. Police agencies involved are seeking changes in the law so that looking up someones personal D/L information without legitimate reason is okay, or at least carries no monetary penalty.

How many people have and breed dogs for self protection? In the states where guns are hard to have, the dog is the best friend. And if an ex-felon can’t have a gun, he will have a dog.
