Kid Shoots Retired Police Dog, Gets 23 Years in Prison. Cops Shoot your Dog and get Paid Vacation

trelloppIt should not surprise you that the police in 2014 get away with slaughtering many household dogs, receiving paid administration leave instead of prison sentences. Thumbnail credit: gennmedia.com

In one of the most recent cases, an officer shot a dog that could in no way injure the cop, because there was a car window in between the cop and the dog. The cop killed the dog by shooting through the car window.

It is estimated that hundreds if not thousands of dogs are shot and killed by police every year in the US.

There is of course no ‘official’ statistic because officials don’t quite care for statistics that prove the system to be immoral, and there are no advocacy groups that represent pets against police aggression.

Recently, a 17 yr old boy from Florida was sentenced to 23 years, a huge portion of his life behind bars for shooting a police dog. Correction – a retired police dog. He was only 16 years old at the time of the crime.

In this particular situation however, the 17 yr old had allegedly committed a burglary on a state trooper’s house, and he shot his dog inside the house. There is nothing morally okay about that in any way, but to send him to prison for a huge part of his young life, and seek no rehabilitation, is gross and immoral, and that is the very reason the US has the highest amount and rate of citizens incarcerated of any nation or empire in the history of the world.

To again sum it up, this is how the system works: if a cop  –a guy with a badge– shoots an innocent man’s dog for no reason at all, even if the dog poses zero threat to anyone, 99% of the time he gets a paid vacation (administrative leave) and nothing more.

When a juvenile criminal committing a crime kills a dog that was formerly used by police to lock people in cages, he is basically charged with killing a police officer.

Please share this with absolutely as many people as possible; especially if they love animals or don’t understand that hundreds, possibly thousands of dogs are shot and killed by cops every year with near-zero consequence .

  1. He should at least get a free trip to spring break Daytona Beach then receive 5yrs for possession of a firearm and 3yrs for burglary.

  2. burglary was the felony. using a gun during a felony…..shooting the dog was further down the list…..of "petty crimes"

  3. if he's committing felony burglaries with a gun at 16 years old there's not much chance of rehabilitation anyway. if he had encountered a person instead of the dog he would have shot them too ! another shining example of why blacks have no place in a civilized society !

    You missed the point, it's a double standard, they should be held to the same standards. They are not, thus your comment is meaningless.

  9. Kody Abney you have no idea what you're talking about ! according to current FBI crime statistics :

    Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.

    Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife.

    Hispanics commit three times more violent crimes than whites, but the statistics are nebulous because sometimes they are classified as white, so it could be far higher.

    The best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percent of the population that is black and Hispanic.

    Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery.

    Forty-five percent of black crime is against whites, 43 against other blacks, and 10 percent against Hispanic.

    Blacks are seven times more likely to go to prison, Hispanics three times.

  10. Parish I guess it never occurred to you as to why your biased statistics are what they are. Who do you think is putting those blacks and Hispanics in jail? How many of those people do you believe actually posed a threat to society? Prison is a business just like any other in this nation the difference is this organization targets minorities and it is a system meant "trap" these individuals in a cycle that is often impossible to get away from. You sir are the reason this country is shit. A white persons crime doesn't go on a statistic board because half of you are let go or get away with it. You are not targeted and half the time you are given much much lighter sentencing on ANY crime. But you wouldn't be mad if you were black or Hispanic? Discriminated against by everyone like you including these so called protectors of citizens not jus white citizens. But let me guess you wouldn't understand this because you are neither black nor Hispanic and listen to all the stats your television and newspaper prints out??? Or could it be that you truly are just a racist in which case may God have mercy on your soul.

  11. Tommy Hache : statistics show that while blacks are marginally less likely to use or sell drugs than whites, they are 14 times more likely to be sentenced to prison time for doing so…

  12. Felony B&E, felony burglary, felony possession of a handgun, felony use of a firearm is commission of a crime, discharging a firearm, cruelty to animal, and I'm sure this is not Tyrone's first crime of this nature. I could give a shit about the retired police dog. This turd needs jail time and plenty of it. He is not fit for decent society.

Devin Williams Blah Blah Blah, blame everyone BUT the poor mistreated misunderstood blacks. they are just victims of oppression and slavery LMAO. they cried about slavery so we gave them freedom, they cried about segregation so we ended it, they cried about job discrimination and equality and we created the Affirmative Action and the ACLU. so what have they done with all these freedoms, NOTHING….they have pissed away every opportunity they have been given, 50%+ of them are illiterate, 60%+ of them are in prison, 80%+ are on welfare with multiple kids and no fathers and they would just as soon rob and shoot you in the back as look at you. they are nasty filthy animals that the world would be better off without ! and yes i'm a racist and there is NO God !

You're all fucking retarded it should matter who you are if you have a badge or not don't fucking kill an innocent animal if it looks like a threat turn the fuck around and wait for the owner to get home don't harm it for doing its job protecting the property if the dog attacks use the pressure point on the jaw that makes them release….. how would u feel if your bestfriend was shot for no reason and u couldn't do a damn thing about it…. "man's bestfriend" what the fuck happened to that. All I know us if anyone harmed my dog idc who you are I'd kill you and do my time with pride for my bestfriend

  24. In Florida it's 10 20 life for armed burglary. He was sentenced for discharging the weapon in a burglary. He deserved it. I usually agree with all of your posts but this one definitely leaves out some important details. He would have been given at least 20 years if he accidentally shot the ceiling. He might have gotten the other 3 years for shooting the dog and I think that the same should happen to police that shoot dogs.

  27. Whoever wrote this story is looking at this one sided. Its a joke ( 16 year old robs a house with a loaded gun and kills a dog, what if had been a person home he or she would be dead to? You guys are just stupid. There is more to every story than what we read or watch regarding this cops and how they handle dog situations.

  28. The point of the article is that if a policeman breaks into your house and shoots your dog, he gets paid vacation. Nobody is saying that this kid should earn paid vacation for these crimes, it's saying no one should.

  33. Seriously tho a 16 yr old kid pretty much knows right from wrong, during a burglary? Who the hell defends a thief? Shooting the dog is only ONE of multiple charges, do your time

  34. But the article is deceptive. It purports that the entire sentence was for killing the dog. That is not accurate. The sentencing judge had all of his crimes to weigh when imposing that sentence. He is obviously a menace, and needs to be harshly dealt with. Prisons are for just this type of criminal. He broke into a man's home to steal shit. He was not charged with a victimless crime like smoking weed.
    I disagree completely with criminals with badges shooting pets, but you can't compare apples and oranges. I feel a pet owner is justified in shooting a cop to defend their pets. The double standard needs to be handled, but this is the wrong association to make a valid point.

  36. I see your point Keon and I'm sure the judge took everything into consideration. But there are reports of cops just shooting anything because they are cops and nothing more then a few days off work. The woman who had there pet shot in front of her kids after she told the officer not to enter to want until she put her dogs up he entered anyway and then shot the dog and then pointed the gun at the mom and kid. It's also unacceptable to think than just because he's black or a kid from a bad part of town that he has experience with this type of crim. It's that kinda thinking that leads to this kind of thing, let's face it jail time doesn't fix things it don't. Instead of sending him to get help you're gonna lock him up with other criminals he he's Yung enough to get help instead. Good job system we know you work really good don't we. Maybe the kid can use the stand your ground law to help him out of this.

  37. People seem to forget this criminal is a child. I think 23 years is more than a bit harsh. But let's just stick him in prison so he can come out as an even worse criminal. Too many people are just tossed in jail and forgotten. In the end all we have is 2 lives ruined, a dead dog and a kid spending half his life in prison. He should be punished, but the focus should be more on rehabilitation. Maybe I'm just too kindhearted…

  38. Jordan Anderson i agree but dont do your time, wait for it. say he shoots your dog today, dont go stabbing him tomorrow, or next week….stab him in 5 or 10 years. nobody will ever suspect it was you.
    same when they try to put dogs down just cause their a "dangerous" race….want to kill my dog? you better hope im not home or your not leaving alive

  41. I agree that many police are out of control. Fant. But this is a shitty example of a case to try to parallel. The cade where man shot a police dog in his house on a no knock warrant and got a capital charge is better.
    I think the whole penal system needs a revamping. This criminal, and I mean criminal, does need to be in prison. I don't think he needs to be exposed to lifers. I don't think there should be any lifers. If a person is unredeemable they shouldn't be incarcerated, and live on the taxpayers dime. They should be executed.
    I also think that any police, or prosecutor, who condemns a person on fabricated, or planted, evidence should face the fate they put before the innocent party. From speeding tickets to murder. Perjury is perjury.
    Stop incarcerating people for marijuana and it will open up a lot of prison space. Kill all lifers and get even more.
    Incarcerate people in prisons with similar sentences. IE rape, robbery, murder, in one unit, fraud, and other nonviolent crimes elsewhere. Stop the victimization of new offenders by those with nothing left to lose.

  42. Dustin Shepard and Mark Thomas, the double standard should be the focus, but the article does attack the sentence the kid got as immoral and excessive, and frankly that is a crap. "…the 17 yr old had allegedly committed a burglary on a state trooper’s house, and he shot his dog inside the house. There is nothing morally okay about that in any way, but to send him to prison for a huge part of his young life, and seek no rehabilitation, is gross and immoral,…" BS. The immorality is that cops don't get the same.

  45. Jonathon Brent Man, I am 19 years old, and the thought of spending age 17 through 40 in jail for just about anything is ridiculous. Also, the article mentions that nothing is being done to actually help the MINOR, he is simply being thrown in a cage. Shit, I hardly remember being 17 and that was 2 years ago.

  46. I think the people on here are missing the point of the article. A kid shoots a dog and gets 23 years. A cop shoots a dog and nothing happens to the cop. Its wrong. Just because you have a badge shouldnt mean your above the law.

  48. Oh Ms Assoner Misnomer, I'm certainly not a meth head, nor a 1%er, and certainly not a fake anything. I have, on occasion stepped outside the law to right a wrong. I have even been inside and seen firsthand the criminality of the penal system. So I can speak from a position of knowledge. I have also gained extensive legal training since. Enough to be able to separate the issues regarding these examples.

  52. Act like an adult you get charged as an adult many people have been charged as an adult in the past as long as they are in their teens. Yes there are 16 years that rent & live by their selves have you never heard of emancipation? Most other things you can't do but when it comes to a crime like this in my opinion there is no doubt on how he should be charged, he came prepared to kill anybody in his way.

And I never said id break into someones house, but that if adog was to attack me im going to kill or seriously injure it before it does to me. Use that thing called your brain its located in your skull stupid. Never said id break into someones house and then kill the dog for protecting its home id prolly turn around and go back out the way I came. I was simply saying if somesones dog is attacking me I'm not gunna be cool and wait for the owner or try pressure points. I'm gunna put my finger in its eyes and bite its nose till it stops or dies.

  64. Eric McGuire No to voting, drinking, & the military although I do believe you should be able to drink at 18 if you can vote or die for your country. As to him being an adult no this doesn't make him an adult but he certainly is not a kid either, if you read my post it says act like an adult maybe it should say act like a thug or violent criminal and be charged as an adult. As to the 6 year that would be more of a juvenile thing, if it was out & out murder & he fully understood what he did then maybe prison once he hit 18. Just because he's 6 doesn't bar him from being evil. Without knowing anything on the 6 year olds case there is much left out. Did he accidently shoot him, stab him to death, depending on what happened he might not be charged at all.

  65. Ashauna White Thanks for letting us know what kind of person you are. The difference between road kill and game animals is road kills are accidents, and in the case of game animals, not owned by someone. Even if one heartlessly discounts the life and worth of a "damn dog" as callously as you do, this was a willful, deliberate act of violence against his owners. The emotional scars, and sense of loss, not only of their beloved companion and friend, but their sense of safety can follow victims of this type of crime for years if not the rest of their life. While this innocent dog didn't deserve this, the greater crime is the act of emotional violence against his family, if you want to get technical sweetie.

  73. You can't call yourself "the anti media" and then omit information and facts that mainstream media has on their stories because it doesn't line up with 'X' agenda. I was linked to this website by Cop Block and agree with the point you are trying to make. I believe the police are out of control, only getting worse and need immediate reformation. However, the method you are going about it is dishonest. There is a lot more information to this story, including this kid's rap sheet that prevented him from getting any lower sentencing. His charges included "charges of animal cruelty, armed burglary and shooting into an occupied building". None of his charges or sentencing had anything to do with the dog's history.. If anything, it was his own history that did him in. "He had been previously charged with grand theft, battery, lewd and lascivious molestation and false imprisonment." I shouldn't have to find another news source without a bias to be able to develop an informed opinion from a news source named the 'The Anti Media'. The fifth sentence on your 'About' page is: "The Anti-Media offers a new paradigm, a bottom up approach for real, unbiased, reporting where we the people are the journalists and editors."

  74. Comment isn't meaningless, this headline and article are slightly misleading. That was the meaning of the comment. Cops are held to a double standard, however this was not a very good example of that. This article implies he was sentenced to 23 years for killing a dog when a cop could do it and not get charged.. He was charged with 23 years because of the multiple felonies, and history of grand theft, false imprisonment, molestation.. etc.

I'm just saying that this case was a shitty example to compare. And the article was misleading. This piece of shit was robbing a man's house with a gun. He was not sentenced just for killing the dog. The crimes add up. It has to be viewed as a whole.

    I"'m sure his names not Tyrone either you fat, fake Son's of Anarchy Fuck. I wonder how many crimes you committed in your life. Probably on Meth related charges"

    Talk about an ignorant and unnecessary comment…. I get where Scoot is coming from. He is able to separate the situations to come to an educated opinion. Just spouting "Gosh, I totally dated a po-po before, I was like, aw hell naw, brah"… Who really cares whom you have and have not dated? That shows right there, that you are bringing personal emotion based on personal experience into it. Separate yourself, then respond.

    On another note, I feel that any animal abusers, as well as animal murderers, need to do time. Whether it be an individual in authority, or a civilian.

  88. @Kim Mega Tronowksi ummm…sweetheart…you look like you slit your wrist and sit up and eat ice cream all day watching Friends. Instead of trying to come for me on a blog about something I could care less about, you should probably take this time out to go on a low Carb diet or something. You could stand to lose a Good 15, 20, 30, 50 pounds because you are built like a hot water heater. Take all of those piercings out of your face and Maybe you would look more acceptable to the human society. And my upbringing was fucking phenomenal if I must say. my Parents are still married, grew up in the suburbs, and I still live FUCKING PHENOMENAL, and I know for a fact my upbringing was better than yours, now go do a sit up and run on the eliptical for a few hours you chubby, hideous freak of nature. Like how I separated myself again? Lmao And on another note, I don't speak "ebonics" dear. That's for ghetto trash. 🙂

  89. Ashauna White, considering that you have your breasts hanging out for all to see, and look uncannily close to Rupall, I would desperately change your life choices if I were you. While your parents obviously failed you in their upbringing(it isn't their fault, blame your Grandparents for raising them like shit), I would hardly call your childhood as phenomenal. You dress overly slutty, leading our society to believe that you have a desperate need for attention and acceptance. You thrive on the shock factor and the attention from men. Me? I am actually at a healthy weight for my height and age. So listen, honey, you don't have to be so confrontational and defensive with me. All of America can tell that you were sexually damaged at a young age. That is clear in your projected sexual prowess. Also, I do believe your left titty is lower than the right one. Honey, you should really get that fixed by a doctor. You are really funny, though… Thanks for the laugh, sweety.

You don't have any insults so trying to say i look like a drag queen is your only comeback lmao. Ok. You're fat, pasty and pale, you're built like Buzz Lightyear, huge upper body and straw cellulite filled legs. You look like him too with that big ass chin of yours. Fat chicks always take face pictures lmao. I can dress sluttish because I'm hot and my body is sick. You can't because you are fat, out of shape and no one wants to see you half naked. Lmao and calling me ghetto isn't an insult…because I'm far from it. I have a better job than you and I'm 23, and black LOL! You look like you use food stamps dear. I bet you do. And my breasts are perfectly symmetrical so try again lmfao. Keep looking for flaws. I'll wait. I'm 23 years old and drive a Mercedes. What do you drive? Poor White trailer trash. You even dress poor. And speaking of trannies, you do share a striking resemble to Boy George, now sing me a song you eunich!

  92. Aaron P Halvorson Another person who misses the point. It's not about dog, although that is an important aspect, it's about the people who loved it that are destroyed. If he burned their house down and got 23 years for aggravated arson, we wouldn't be having this discussion.

  93. Ashauna White… You don't know what my profession is. However, a professional model, you are not. You have cellulite on your thighs, YES your breasts are not parallel to each other. I am not fat, I am modest. I am pretty sure that 143lbs for 5'8" is a healthy weight. Maybe I could lose another 5, but I am not worried about it. Go ahead and call me fat. It isn't true, so it is totally fine for you. You obviously felt threatened over something stupid, so your only retort is to start in on someones looks head on. I feel sorry for you, and your parents. They must be really embarrassed. What does you being black have to do with anything? And for your information, I am pale because I like to be. I don't like to be tan. I wasn't aware that taking care of my skin was a flaw. OOPS! I dress poor? NO, honey, I dress like I would rather spend money on other things. I don't care about fancy cars. I don't care if someone's house is bigger than mine, or if their grass is greener. I don't care if their dog is more well behaved, if their significant other buys them presents, and I sure as hell don't care about jewelry. There are bigger things in life to worry about than the menial possessions of some child. By the way, you can not see my legs. I can see all of you though. I am not impressed. Maybe the next buyer of your blockbuster porno, "Cum Dumpster 4" will be? I don't know… That is dependent on if they find your video in the $5 bins at your Walmarts.
    Love,
    Pasty, Pale, and Loving It <3 :*

  94. Ashauna White, also, while I have never had the need for government assistance, I do know some people who have. What is wrong with government assistance when you need a hand while you're down? Why do you hate people in need? Just because you sell your body for sex, doesn't mean that people on the poverty line wish to, as well. You are not a good person. You can only get by on your looks for so long, but being ugly on the inside will shine through soon. You may be as old as 23, but you are not successful, you are not famous, and you will look back on your life 10 years from now and realize what a vapid cunt you were.

  97. Ashauna White, sweety baby honey pie, I am not fat. You can say that until you're blue in the face. I apologize for stooping to your level in body shaming. I really and honestly feel bad about that. That's not really how I roll, these days. Either way, you're still ugly inside and out. You should really be ashamed of not only body shaming someone, but also for shaming people on assistance, children of divorced parents, pale people, fat people, skinny people, smart people, elders, among other things. At the end of the day, you are not a good person. It should be time that I realize that there are disgusting people beyond help in this world. I am happy with my thin body. I am happy with my career, my life, my relationship status, my worldly travels, and my posessions, as well as those that I love and whom love me back. I am a happy person. I wish that in the years to come, that you are able to meet the same outcome. Good luck, little girl. You will need it.

  99. Ashauna White, you really remind me of myself when I was 19. You can do better! I believe in you! And I will admit, you are not ugly on the outside. I am only referencing your inside. You should be a good person IN GENERAL. I know that I am beautiful inside and out, although, I still can have my ugly MOMENTS. I would like to say that I will pray for you, but I am atheist, so I will just HOPE for you. I hope that everything works out for you, and that you one day realize that you can do better. Money and possessions are nothing, it's you as a human being that matters in the end. Good night. I hope that you grow into a beautiful person on the inside as well as out one day. Like I said, you remind me of me when i was 19. Maybe 18, as well. I know you can do it! Goodnight honey! I will hope the greatest things for you! Sleep well!

  101. Tyler Priest yeaaaah only if you dont break into peoples properties, or threaten the dogs owner, there is very little chance that a dog would attack you just out of nowhere so youd have zero reason to kill it. when a dog attacks somebody, its 99% out of times the persons fault, not the dogs.
    you sound like one of those cunts shooting dogs through a window cause he seemed agressive. i agree that the pressure points are bullshit though

  102. Dustin Shepard if you broke in to someones house and shot the owner you get life … him getting 23 is a joke compared to that. It's to set an example to deter other people from from doing it again that is why he has a harsh sentence. if you shot a cop (human) you have a harsh sentence probably consecutive life why? to set an example for all the dumbasses out there that wanted to try. A policeman is not breaking into your house, when he enters your property through a chase it's a pursuit and is a exception under the 4th which allows him to enter your property and if your dog is there and it attacks him he is allowed to defend himself … just like if you a human was there and you attacked him hes allowed to defend himself. Hes not breaking the law by entering you property under certain conditions such as a pursuit or if he hears screaming coming from your home these are emergency exceptions granted in the 4th to LEO to enter your property and thereafter he is require to leave after the pursuit or the emergency has ended. he is also not allowed to search your house under those condition except where the fleeing suspect has gone everything in plainview is fair game but a search warrant is required after. blame the criminal that ran into your house if your dog gets shot … also as a dog owner be mindful don't bring your dog to a police crime scene like that idiot in California. Because you as a HUMAN is intelligent enough to predict shit that is going to happen to your dog so take preventive measures to ensure safety to your dog.

  105. Jeff Kato well for one I dont get myself into those types of situations for that to happen. And where is the story of a cop breaking into someones house and illegally detaining them and then killing their dog? I have seen articles on cops shooting dogs but no wrongfully detention. I have googled it and nothing came up. Now if that ever did happen then yes they should have to do time. But this story isnt about that, it's about a little gang banging thug who broke into someones house intending to rob it, the kid was 16 years old and had a stolen gun and he discharged the gun in a residents and killing the owners dog, and that makes 3 felonies and a misdemeanor for animal cruelty, his sentence fits the crime. And if this would have never happened if the kid would have had his own money by having a job. These thugs think they are so entitled.

If you think what you watch on the news or read in the paper are actual facts than you my friend are the fucking retard. I love my Dog but I am also aware that he could bit a person at any time for any reason, I don't care how nice an animal is there is still the possibility that under certain conditions dogs or any animal turn to what they know protects them, which can be harmful, which in return gives people/cops every right to do what is needed. Like it or not that's the life we live in!!! Cant when battles of he said she said if animals cant talk.

Knowing there would be a way bigger investigation if they shot a person they resort to shooting dogs at any chance they get

  122. Ashauna White I don't think any of these people can read. The retired police dog wasn't even killed. Look at the picture of it bandaged. I have had dogs, and was very attached to them. I can't equate killing one with the killing of a person. That said, I think cops should be punished for killing pets when they aren't even attacked. Look at "cop shoots dog in Lagrange MO" on youtube. A gentle, friendly female bulldog is wagging her tail at the piece of shit cop who just shot her. The dog is trying to make friends, but the dick still gives her the kill shot. No disciplinary action against the cop was taken. I don't condone violence against policemen, but have to ask why the sudden amount of people just wanting to shoot cops? Is it because videos and social media are showing how cops treat us? Look at that CA state trooper wailing away at that grandmother's head for no reason.

IF and WHEN a dog attacks, it is fair to fight for your own life and if necessary kill it but in almost all cases, its the human who provokes the dog by entering ground he shouldnt be on or attacking people he shouldnt be. If your dog tries to bite and kill a person simply because hes afraid of the dog then maybe you shouldnt own any dogs at all smartass. please go hang yourself, theres plenty of dipshits out there already

They evidently want to live in a communist society, so everyone thinks like they do. Because, you know, if you have a difference in opinion you're just a moron. Please, stop. If you are able to communicate your opinion effectively, and intellectually without putting someone down, then you are at least more intelligent than half the commenters here, regardless of how you feel about this issue. This kid should not have gotten such a harsh sentence. Maybe prison until his 21st birthday, or something along those lines. This is just ridiculous. We all at some point commit a crime, most of us don't get caught doing it. If we did, we would be screwed. The juctice system doesn't help rehabilitate criminals, it turns upstanding citizens who made a mistake into hardened criminals. They get out more fucked up than they went in. They might as well have given this child the death penalty, because they have taken his future and life! Our prison system does the opposite of what it is supposed to. My friends daughters were raped and molested by their uncle for years, he was found guilty and given ten years per child. Then they combined the two sentences. Ten years! And this guy gets 23? And the woman who fired a warning shot at her abusive husband, gets 20? They're trying to make it 60, she didnt hurt him nd didn't want to. Now her future is gone, her life and her children's lives are forever destroyed. But God Bless America, right? Our prison system isn't a system, it's an industry!

  133. A police dog is a police officer. If you shoot a Police dog than you deserve the death penalty. Period. If you disagree than you are worthless and should be deported. Period. I agree that police should not shoot your dog but if it poses a threat than your dog is dead. Don't break laws that get your dog involved and you won't have a dead dog. If your dog does get shot by a police officer, it is most likely your dumbshit fault. And technically, you probably should have been shot too since your dog is a weapon once he or she attacked the Cop.

They do fire at will when a dog is in sight, even if it is sleeping chained up in the backyard. Cops shoot dogs all the time and get away with everything and that is what I am sick and tired of. So all those cops should join this fellow in jail! Then justice will be done!

If a policeman kills a dog that is not a threat to him or someone else he belongs in jail too. All of us are responsible for the decisions we make. I don't know how often police get away with killing dogs for no reason, but if I ever see one do it, I won't stop until he pays for the crime.

  162. Holy shit, you're retarded. He got 23 years for felony burglary with a firearm, felony shooting in a building, and felony animal cruelty. It wasn't just because he killed a dog. Cops who kill dogs are scum, but "independent journalists" who inaccurately portray what a punishment was actually for are just as big of scum.

  163. Thank you for setting that straight. The law varies by state, but the most stringent penalty I'm aware of for killing a police service animal is a Class E felony in a couple of states. Last I knew in NY, for instance, it was a Class A misdemeanor. Yes, you might end up in prison for killing a police dog, but not for 23 years, and in my view not nearly long enough, given the service they provide and the cost of training/handling them. Speaking with broad generality, the most you'll get is 5-7 years for killing an active police dog. Personally I don't think it's long enough. (Plus they're dogs, and killing is just plain vile under many, if not most, circumstances).

  164. Correction: as of 2013, it's now a felony to kill a police service animal in NY. Isn't it a felony to steal something valued at over $10K? A police dog and its training can cost considerably more, and this would be killing, not stealing.

  167. I'm pretty sure the poster said (BY the way what he did was wrong) and you guys are all blah blah rarw we should feel bad for him? The poster said it was still wrong to break in to the house. Some thick skulls around here. The whole point was he shot the retired dog because he felt like it was a threat and he got some time for it. However, if a cop shoots your dog he gets no time for it. Seriously, go on to youtube and search cop shoots dog. Half the time the dumb fuckers aren't even at the right address and shot an innocent person's dog.
