That’s because it is learning from the best.
At least they didn’t shoot the neighbor’s dog for resisting/fighting with a police officer. /S
So what happens when the K-9 jumps a fence and attacks a child?If I witness the attack can I shoot the dog without repercussions?
You are a member of class C (Non-police mundane).
The dog is a member of class B (so long as it doesn’t die at the hands of a member of class A).
The hierarchy remains:
There are four levels to this hierarchy:
B) Police Dogs
D) Mundanes dogs.
Of course, Members of class A may kill members of classes B, C or D without fear of criminal charges, in multiple instances.
Members of classes C or D who kill members of class B are treated as though they killed a member of class A.

Nope. The police and their dog get off Scott free. You go down for murder.
surprised they didn’t shoot the citizens’ dog after the fact, saying it attacked the police dog first. i’d demote the dog’s handler.
They train their dogs in order to suppress the dogs’ instinct to *not* be human aggressive and constantly encourage aggression in general.
Hardly surprising when their dogs start fights.
Give them time.
What about (E) Mundanes’ cats?
Class A usually stomp on class E.
“id demote the dogs handler”
Concur. The dog and handler will likely be taken off duty until the misdirected aggression is corrected.
Dogs are either dog aggressive or not, in my experience. If the dog was, the handler is at fault, cause he would know it. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon or an expert at handling dogs to know their animal is aggressive towards other dogs. One walk past another dog, and you know it.
