…The dog fucking LUNGED at them, according to the submission! What the hell were they supposed to do, let it maul them?!

I am sure they could have set their “phasers” (read tasers) to stun.

Tasers? This entry seems to imply they only had regular guns on them at the time, if they actually HAD tasers they would likely have done what you said, but you can’t exactly set a Glock to stun and since it was a split-second type thing (you know, since it LUNGED at them!) they couldn’t easily shoot to wound. It was them or the dog, and I don’t blame them for picking them.

At least not fucking shoot it in the head.

This entry seems to imply that they only had regular guns on them at the time. You seem to have inferred that that was the case; however, it was not necessarily so.
Perhaps they did have tasers or other stunning weapons (cosh) on them at the time, but weren’t able to reach for those fast enough? I am not blaming those guys (I sympathize with them, tbh; where I live I have been attacked/chased by far more vicious dogs several times).

Yes, because only a complete retard would try to grab a scared dangerous animal in a situation like this for no reason, except maybe misguided judgement.

How about not grab the most dangerous weapon in their arsenal! SURE, LET’S TAKE OUT A PERSON KILLING PISTOL IN FRONT OF A CROWD OF PEOPLE Because that’d be smart.

Dogs have very sensitive ears, and guns do a lot of noise, even for us humans. So, unless it is a trained dog (aka attack dogs used by cops) a simple shot in the air would have been enough to scare the animal. Which for me is a good solution, rather than killing it and let it agonize in the middle of the street.

its a dog, they do that all the time. this one wasn’t snarling or anything to show it was about to attack. dogs jump up on people when they’re happy to see them or in general. so the cops would actually be shooting a dog for being a dog, nothing more. even if the dog did bite on of them, it would have been a better situation than killing it. you can heal wounds, you cant bring back a lost friend.

How about the obvious thing and try to restrain it.

So if a cop doesn’t have a taser, then he is free to just shoot someone dead? Nice, real nice.
