    Yeah and it's okay for a cop to choke the life out of someone for selling single cigarettes on a street corner. You're not a cop we hope.

    I'm guessing a number of them just have itchy trigger fingers and are just dying to shoot something. fwiw, as a kid hunting with my dad I almost fell victim to that and thought of shooting a squirrel after three days of seeing no deer.

    To those who are worrying about property rights and dogs getting shot while defending their yard I'll point out that the article says that the property has "an invisible fence system" for the dog. There is no mention as to whether there was a real fence or what the size of the property is. Given that it's pure speculation as to whether the officers even knew they were on private property and that the dog actually belonged to someone.

    I do find the contention that you have to "control" your dog in yard ludicrous. Leash laws do not apply on private property, at least where I live. Letting the family dog roam freely in a yard is normal around here. My dogs spend most of the summer out in our yard.

That's not how police react to someone running, and not how they should react to that.

    2. Police have the right to go into, or through your yard in the pursuit of a criminal running...That is just a fact. And, I'll go one further, if the police are chasing someone who ran through your property, and they follow and are confronted by your dog, whom then attacks, they have a right to defend themselves, and that includes the K9.

    3. Well, they need not stop and ask every homeowner if they can run through their backyard while in pursuit of a fleeing suspect, that's just foolish to think that they should. As a homeowner myself, I know that if the cops are running through my yard after someone they have my implicit permission, and I hope they catch the suspect without injury to themselves. Further, if my dog attacks them coming through, and they have to protect themselves from him, then they have to do what they have to do...I understand...

    I can only guess by your answers here that you want police at a disadvantage.
    I don't want the police killing people's pets to give a ticket to a bicyclist for a traffic infraction, if that puts them at a disadvantage I can accept that. As I said, if it was a violent criminal I would consider the police's trespassing reasonable. 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.

    More likely, the person who fled may have had some pot on him, been an illegal alien or had another unpaid citation. Probably not worth killing someone's pet.

    This has nothing to do with Michael Brown? It is questionable if the suspect even entered this property as if he did I would imagine he would have ran into the evil pit bull.
    This isn't about pit bulls at all.

    Leash laws aren't an issue. No need for you to even mention them. Whenever anyone is around your dog it's your job to make sure your dog doesn't go after them, leash or no.

    That can only apply when you know that someone has entered your property.
