In this case, the cop is likely at fault, but it will most likely be a civil case the owner has to file against the police department or the cop.

Though sorry for the dog and its owner, it is an interesting spin for media. In the past few months some cops have been let off after incidents with well... In case this guy gets suspended, some might say, 'What a dog's life is more precious than ...'.
Hey Cooldude. Glad to see you back.

I think it is clearly the cops fault. Cops have become trigger happy nowadays.

Let's see, what would you say if a neighbor (not a cop, but a civilian) did the same thing? It would have clearly amounted to some sort of criminal penalties. You can't just fire a gun in someone else's property based on a randomly perceived threat.

It's a freakin' dog. It was in its freakin' owner's house. It isn't illegal to have a dog or to keep it unleashed. The owner may not like intruders, which is again not illegal. So there was absolutely no reason to pull a gun and kill the dog.

This is cops gone wild!
