And we wonder whether or not "a well-armed militia" to protect the people against a tyrannous government is a good or bad idea.

Let a dog come at my 3 year old and it dies. Children are way more important than dogs. I have 4 dogs they are spoiled rotten, but if I saw one of them attacking a child it would die simple as that. If you love or dogs you must be responsible and keep them restrained.

That's a reasonable self-defense claim; that wasn't the claim being made by the cop, who just blew the head off the dog for no apparent reason. No child was involved.

Again, I agree that children are more important than dogs, but no children were involved in this case.

Nine out of ten people who commented at the end of the AC-T story about the shooting of the little dog CONDEMNED deputy Honeycutt. Some of them said they would remember this when Van Duncan came up for reelection.
There were over 100 comments, and that was a week ago. Go see for yourself. One of the comments said that this is not the first time Honeycutt killed a dog. He previously killed a dog with a bow and a hunting arrow when he worked at the Detention Center, the witness said.
You know people by the creeps with whom they associate -- Randy Sorrells, David Sharpton, Tim Teves, Deborra DeBruhl, Ron Ray, Honeycutt, and many more. These abnormal human beings represent the sheriff and are each of them reasons not to vote for him. I am a registered Democrat and I would stand in a line a mile long to vote against Van Duncan.
No reason to hold a grudge just because they have beat you down a couple of times. Now get back in that shack and wait on your check.

Might as well take sides with the outlaws when law enforcement is shooting our dogs.
