I find it most unfortunate that you refuse to condemn the police officer for entering a bad situation and choosing to make it worse by shooting the dog.
I remind you of Obama’s goal: “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded [as the military].”
What has happened during his administration? Police departments have increasingly received federal funds, making them hunger for *more* federal funding.
Declaring the need for an American Gestapo + Funding a future Gestapo = Americans should not be surprised when the police view them, and not The State, as The Enemy.
How do you threaten a citizen? Shoot his dog today, knowing the implication is that you will shoot him with no more compunction another day.
Consider that, before you come back and blame the victim.
I said the cops were trigger happy. That’s not enough for you?
The rest of you post veered off Non Sequitur Ave.
