If you were to shoot a police dog you could, in some jurisdictions, be charged with "assault on a police officer". Police officers can shoot your dog with no consequences whatsoever if they claim self defense. Legit?

If you are a criminal, and the police lets the dog go after you and you shoot the dog, it is a criminal act. Unfortunately, many civilian dogs are being shot unjustifiably by police. It is tragic in all cases.

You aren't a criminal until you've been convicted, technically.

All I'm saying is its possible, cops makes mistakes.

I understand, police do make mistakes. Like the one in that video. But, there are circumstances where it is necessary. I would argue that the mistakes are far fewer than warranted instances.

Yes. I don't see a police dog attacking. Unless you are a hunted suspect.

If a dog is attacking me, I'm going to kill it. Doesn't matter whose dog it is.

I can't say all cops are as competent as I'd like them to be.Plus they must be hyper paranoid about when to shoot or not to. Every gun owner knows there is nothing laid back about taking aim no matter how many times you practice it.

Cops can't always be the best so donate to have them trained better, paid more, do it yourself. Or let the cops try their best, until they get out of their car to shoot a barking dog. Then hang him.

I'll go to war with the police in court if they come on my property and do anything. Illegal.

I could understand "destruction of police property," but "assaulting an officer?" Plus, the double standard on top of it. It truly is the theatre of the absurd.

I once saw a video of a cop driving his car. He stopped it, got out, shot a barking dog, got back in, and kept driving.

Chances are the Police dont go around shooting dogs, im sure there would be a reason if it had to be done.

They shouldn't just shoot dogs, but they seem to. Their justifications are often lacking. Including breaking into the wrong house, and shooting the dog. www.wfaa.com/news/texas-news/212185641.html

So there's five examples of police shooting dogs for questionable reasons - none of these examples involved the owner of the dog committing a crime.

If you shoot a police dog, you can claim self defense, too. It's a tough case as they are well-trained dogs, but it's fair. Whether or not it's right is a different matter. I think people bestow a little too much humanity on dogs with jobs.

In my experience, police officers are extremely racist and they couldn't care less about your property or your pets. However, if you're anything but nice to them, they'll threaten you with jail time or even violence.
