On a report last night, it

On a report last night, it mentioned that a Pit Bull was shot to "protect officers" but no mention of whether or not the animal was being aggressive. We need more information on this story. The report last night implied that the dog was killed just because it happened to be there.

You sound about as smart as

You sound about as smart as a box of rocks, somebody was killed and your worried about the mutt. Get a job and stop trying to make this look like the police are the bad guys

Actually, Jason, I do care

Actually, Jason, I do care about the dog or any dog that is harmed for no reason. I feel it is safe to assume that you don't keep up with what is going on, or you would understand that there are a lot of bad cops these days. I guess you work, so you don't have a lot of opportunity to keep up with what's going on. Anyhow, I have retired, and living very comfortably. I truly feel that I have forgotten more than you will ever know...........and I try to keep up with the happenings around me. No need to resort to ignorant little 'bucket of rocks" sayings. it only shows you own intelligence is lacking.

he should be worried about

he should be worried about the mutt, if someone will mistreat or murder a dog, they will do the same thing to a human being, they go hand in hand. Now if it was an aggressive animal, that's a different story, so let's see the tapes.
