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.

Dumb-ass dogs need to get their heads straight and learn what it means to politically support your master.

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.

I don’t know either, Wyrd. The “cop kills dog” post seems to be a weekly (at least) event. Sad.

So ... they think shows like the Law and Order franchise, CSI and NYPD Blue were meant to be documentaries?

...or a card carrying member of the religion of peace. Dogs aren't exactly valued in many Arabic cultures.

"A 7-year-old black labrador trained as a service dog was interpreted as too aggressive? "

Moslems hate dogs. They hate black dogs in particular.

Officer Tarek Hassani - any clues here?
