The police work for the taxpayers, which means they do what the taxpayers want or find another job. The majority of U.S. citizens who commented about story feel the police overreacted. This was not a FELONY TRAFFIC STOP, just some idiot police officer who called it a felony stop. The video clearly shows a group of officers overreacting.You people are freakin' crazy. You have no idea what it's like to be called by the THP to assist in a felony traffic stop. That's what Cookeville PD were asked to do. They weren't specificson why the stop was being made and for all they knew it could have been an armed criminal inside. And no officer in their right mind is going to walk up to the car door to shut it not knowing if someone else was hiding inside. Thay did it by the book and that was confirmed by the Maryland State Police department who was assigned to do an independent investigation. And last, you people don't even know which officer shot the dog cause it wasn't Trooper Bush. You think you know everything but in reality you know nothing. Ignorant people really piss me off and that's what all of you are.
The officer who shot the dog is still in hiding because the outraged citizens of this country. You need to learn to live by standards of the United States and stop thinking your better than everyone else. There's hardly a week goes by that we don't read about a police officer being arrested for a felony crime.
The police officers who set an example of good example of serving the public are retiring now. They are being replaced by a very few good men but too many with serious problems.
