    I don't disagree. But I thought the issue here was the dog going after someone when the owner wasn't there (presuming the dog's in a fenced yard which it isn't clear is the case here).

    Owning a dog that will attack people is a hazard and thus not permissible rather you're around or not.

    Right, which means leash laws have nothing to do with anything. This dog was not being taken for a walk, for a leash law to then apply. The cop had entered the space where a dog would have been leashed, so rather or not the dog was leashed doesn't matter.

Note that many cities have imposed limits on when police can do high speed pursuits because of many incidents where the harm from the pursuit was greater than the harm from allowing a suspect to escape. This is a similar situation.
    1. You don't know why the man on the bike ran, do you?

    2. So, it's fine with you to put police at a disadvantage. That's all we need know about your position.

    3. Calling off high speed car chases is meant to protect a driving public that largely are oblivious when they drive. Tell us what person is in danger in a foot pursuit.

    Or a child molester, armed robber, or murderer...how would you know?

    With those kind of monsters around you it is wise to own a dog like this guy had. Or should we depend on the police to take care of us 24/7 and tuck us in at bedtime.

    There's no problem with owning a dog. Just keep it under control. Loose dogs are why I started carrying a gun in the first place. I'll have no problem putting down another dog if I need to.

    Don't be absurd. I have both, guns, and a dog. But if i were in that situation I'd understand

    Re: Pit bull shot by Lee County deputy

    Cant it be possible that SOMETIMES there just really arent any 'bad guys' in a particular story? It doesnt sound like the owner was a bad guy. Sounds like he had a dog and an invisible fence and unless Im missing something, he didnt own a killer dog. The dog doesnt sound like a rabid threat to humankind...he was just a dog, doing what dogs by instinct do. He wasnt roaming the neighborhood mauling small children. The cop that shot the dog was defending a K9 unit. What...he wasnt supposed to do that?

    Its a ****ty set of circumstances that SOMETIMES happens.
