the dog was following the cops hand. look closely. if you put your hand in front of a dog or most animals face, it will think you are giving them something (food, toy, etc.) the dog didn’t lunge, it was trying to bite the cops hand cause the cops was waving it in his face. lunging would be jumping up on his chest which it didnt do. the dog wasn’t acting hostile or snarling at all. it sniffed the ground then tried to go around the cop to go its owner. if the cops had acted professionally and not childish and arresting a guy for, i will admit this, acting childish, this would have never happened. they arrested him cause he said why dont they have any black cops. they basically reacted how people react when little kids say they fucked your mom on call of duty. the cop even has a history of excessive force. he shouldn’t be allowed to be in public with a gun. i blame the people who allow idiots like this to walk around with a badge.

Let’s look at one thing here.

You see that stuff around that officer’s waist?
That’s a belt full of tools, tools that are non-lethal, and are trained in using those non-lethal weapons to the best of their ability.

So with all of those at his disposal, he grabs the most lethal thing in his arsenal and uses it to stop a dog. Mind you he is also in front of a crowd. NOW.

There are a number of things he COULD HAVE used to protect himself, BUT NAW LET’S USE THAT MUTHAFUCKIN’ PISTOL POP POP CAUSE THEM MOTHAFUCKAS DROP.

This was not in the middle of a forest, this was not in a place where he would not have had help. This place was in the middle of a suburban area with dozens of onlookers. AND you have an entire arsenal of non-lethal weaponry that could help you out, which you should have been trained to use, otherwise you’d make a pretty shitty police officer.

But sure, let’s use a facebook shite post to try and make your point.

A baton, mace, a knife, a multi-tool. You act like a dog is some sort of unstoppable killing machine that can’t be stopped without some sort of death.

Also, kind of doubt you even saw the video. The officer shot the dog and didn’t kill it, leaving it to suffer until it finally died. He didn’t give it any final blow to stop it, he just let it die.

1) I never said that a dog was a lethal killing machine; I just wondering what “non-lethal” tools at an officer’s disposal would’ve possibly helped amend the situation.

2) Oh yeah, keep shooting a dog after you’ve already fired at it four times. Wonder how well that’s gonna go over with all the witnesses…

3) Once again, refer to the bottom statement under the huge-ass image.

THEN WHY FIRE AT THE DAMN THING IN THE FIRST PLACE IF THERE ARE DOZENS OF WITNESSES?

Look, a goddamned officer of the law, who is trained to deal with multiple scenarios like this, kind of should thing that a gun should be the last resort when you have more means to your disposal!

A goddamned police officer should know how to keep his cool in any situation! Not act without thinking of repercussions because that sort of makes you as bad as the people you’re trying to arrest!

If I’m reading you right, if a kid lunged at you in a threatening matter, no weapons, nothing, just a damned small 120 pound kid lunged at you, you’d shoot him dead in the face?
