    As in; if the cops didn't pull the kid over to begin with.....

    The journalist may have known of the preceding events but I seriously doubt if the dog or its owner did. How, exactly, was the dog or its owner to know that police (with a loose dog) would be visiting their property that night? The need for hot pursuit complete with air support and an attack dog are not usual for fleeing a minor traffic violation. The sane police response would have been to impound the (likely stolen?) abandoned bicycle and to forget the (barely?) criminal activity of peddling a bicycle without proper lighting.

    Why didn't the governor just call out the National Guard? Or at least bring in the FBI.

    If I'm recalling rightly, Military Drones are now able to be used in the United States.

Blaming the dog, or its owner, is not likely - you enter private property uninvited at your own risk.
    I completely agree with you but a person that attacks a cop in pursuit or even in their yard will go to jail...or be shot.

    Not many owners can probably even get to their dogs (if the owner is inside) before it's shot.

    The whole thing is BS and cops need to be more accountable for this. It takes alot of time and effort to train dogs to protect your property, not to mention that they are often like family members to people.

    Great judgment?

    Pit bull shot by Lee County deputy - NBC-2.com WBBH News for Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Naples, Florida
    LEHIGH ACRES, FL -
    A simple traffic stop involving a bicycle in Lehigh Acres led to a Lee County deputy firing off a shot to protect one of his own.

    It happened near Gilbert Avenue just west of Gunnery Road.

    Deputies tell us they attempted to stop a suspect on a bicycle outside of the Dollar General store on Gunnery Road for riding without a light. That's when the suspect ran away from deputies.

    A helicopter and K9 unit were called in to help search for the suspect. While tracking the suspect in a wooded area, a K9 unit was attacked by an unleashed Pit bull. That's when a deputy in pursuit shot the Pit bull.

    We spoke to the Pit bull's owner, Michael Rivera. Rivers says the entire incident happened on his property -- which he says has an invisible fence system.

    The Pit bull is receiving treatment from animal control. River tells us his dog isn't doing well. The K9 is expected to be okay.

    The suspect is still on the run. No description has been given to us at this time.
    Was the pit bull black, young and unarmed. If so that would explain the police overreaction.

    I have realistic, IMO, worries about cops coming to my property for unfounded reasons and shooting my dogs that are here to defend me. I'll probably die too because I will fire to save them.

    Because I know that I will not be a legitimate focus of police invading my property, I dont commit crimes.
