    The discussion was broader than that, you made it broader. No one can 'control their dogs' when some criminal runs int their yard and they arent aware. This bicycle incident is actually the best proof. I hope these cops get fired. I doubt they will but I hope the family sues the **** out of the department.

    And still, if they shoot my dogs, I will sue the **** out of the department. I may or may not win but they will be lucky if they dont get shot. (And so will I).

    Then 'no one' should own a dog.

    without the seemingly over-the-top response there, the dog encounter never would have happened.
    Must have been this guy, or his relative....

    The only good Pitbull owner is the one who shoots his Pitbull.

    Just my opinion, of course.
    An incredibly ignorant opinion, but an opinion. I have petted hundreds of pitbulls that I didn't know. Not a single one has snapped at me. Many small poodle type dogs have snapped at me.

    Many facilities have guard dogs to secure the property. Many people expect their personal dog to to secure them against an uninvited stranger invading their fenced property. The police had no legitimate need to trespass on that property, they should have gotten the owner's permission and he could have secured the dog. If they were chasing a known violent offender it might have been legitimate, but it wasn't in this case. There were a dozen different ways the dog's death could have been avoided without endangering public safety if better procedures were used. It sounds like these Keystone cops were bored and looking for an adventure.

    Great judgment?

    How do you know that? It isn't in the article. Source?

    Unfortunately, cops do it with some regularity. (google cop kills dog) It most cases the fools could have called the owner or Animal Control officers to handle the dog.
