    Not true...there is a thread right now about cops going to trial over fear of PR optics from the mob of cop haters.

    Dunno about this case but it does seem like a huge reaction to a minor infraction... all 'fleeing is against the law' twaddle aside.

    What does happen a lot is a minor offense is used to make contact with a citizen to investigate further. What we don't know is who the bike pedaler might be. Perhaps he is suspected of being a drug mule/small time D-boy. A routine traffic stop is a popular tool for LE. Not all D-boys roll in pimped out rides.

    Seems to me seizing the bike would be a far easier, safer, cost effective way to deal with those who don't equipe their bikes with the proper safety gear and then run away. From bike to foot transport... living the dream....

    If you have someone at your house and they get injured you'll be sued. She should have taken the dog in the first time she was confronted.
    As most people I am sure that she is being biased, and on top of that she wants money. But we are left with her version since the cops didnt really say much.
    And yes the owners sounded like they were being stupid. They opened their door because most likely they wanted to gauck, then their dog ran outside because they were not paying attention. Listening to the audio as soon as the dog met the police dog bang they shot it. There was no attempt to separate the dogs. Just a quick pull the gun out and shoot. From when you first hear the owner and too when the dog is shot is mere seconds. The cop that shot the dog was an asshole.

    I have seen a lot of dog fights that both dogs survived and no one needed surgery. Most times what sounds like a bad fight is nothing of the sorts. its just a good show of dominance. Perhaps they should have tried something instead of just shooting the damn dog at a moments notice. I know that officers are very protective of their police dogs. Hell I walked by a k9 unit once and the dog barked in the vehicle which sent the officer into a tissy fit.

    I am not a cop hater, in fact I very much support law enforcement. But I call bull**** when I see it. ANd this case sounds like bull****. And a good friend of mine who is in law enforcement agrees that it was shoddy police work to say the least.

    I would leave that conclusion to the internal investigation. But, I find it interesting that a self described proponent of LEO would advocate breaking off pursuit of a fleeing suspect to deal with the obstruction of the homeowners dog. In fact, the homeowner is lucky she wasn't arrested for interference with a lawful police pursuit.

    You go ahead and stick your own hand in a dog fight. Good luck.

    No one but idiots breaks up a dogfight by sticking their hand in to get bit. How to Stop a Dog Fight - Shepard and Haven

    A officer with a police dog should be fully aware of how to go about stopping a dogfight without pulling out a gun at a moments notice.
