Man's Friend is a liar. The events did not happen as he recounted them. Of course, what can you expect from the collection of idiots that frequent this site.

Well Liar, you are here. If that is how you feel what does this say about you? I hate that whatever happened happened but am just curious as what authorizes a City Sanitation Employee to carry a firearm?

I heard there were very incriminating pictures of the crime scene. Dog was in the small front yard in front of the house when shot.

I'll jump in here. Mr. Johnson is not just a sanitation employee, he is a sanitation supervisor as well as the supervisor over animal control, which authorizes him to use a gun if necessary.

If the dog in question is such a beloved family pet, how come animal control had been chasing it since about 11 in the morning because it had been getting into the garbage at different businesses? How come it had no collar, no city dog license, and no rabies tag as is required by city ordinance in addition to the fact that it was running at large, again in violation of city ordinance, as far as anyone knew, it was nothing but a cur dog. The dog bristled, growled and acted like it was going to come at him when Mr. Johnson tried to catch it. Mr. Johnson merely responded as I an many others would have responded faced with a simialr situation. Mr. Johnson did not speed away, he called the animal control truck to come pick up the dog.

If you allow you dog to run at large, in violation of city ordinance, animal control has every right to protect themselves if they feel threatened. People need to understand this the next time they open the front door to let Fido out to run free. It is just that simple.

Great, I appreciate the explanation, so he is authorized to carry/use a gun. Answer me this...why is then that when my neighbor called the police back a year ago because 2 Pit Bulls from across the street growled, bristled, charged and ran a mother and her 2 year old daughter back into their home when trying to get in their car in their driveway did the police tell him that until those dogs "attacked" someone there is nothing that can be done. When he told the police he would shoot the dogs he was told that he couldn't do that and that his phone call may be recorded and he said well let me repeat, if it happens again, I WILL SHOOT THE DOGS......they moved away from the neighborhood by the way! Just about 3 weeks ago I witnessed 2 dogs from this same house (not sure they were the same ones as previous because they have had at least 2 litters of pups)nip at the heels and bark and jump around an elderly neighbor who walks with a cane and is in excess of 85 years old while trying to get from his car to his front door....I am sure there are many more cases like this that go on and on with nothing being done....oh, and try to get ahold of someone on a week-end to do something about Animal Control...that is a whole different story.....everybody has a story, let this one be told and then we will wait for the next one.....

There has got to be a better way for the city to deal with this problem, if it is a problem, than to just go around shooting hand guns in neighborhoods where there might be children playing.

If everybody takes that approach there will be people shooting stray animals all over town. This is not only not safe but no way to treat helpless animals.

Why is everyone upset with Mr. Johnson? The blame rests squarely on the the owner of the dog. If he had not violated the city ordinance prohibiting dogs at large, this situation would never have happened. I said in my previous post if this is such a beloved family per, why is it running at large, with no identification?

Stop trying to place the blame for this incident where it does not belong. The owner of the dog is at fault for this incident, no one else!

The way I hear it, the animal was a well loved, very sweet pet that never left it's yard. All dogs are NOT vicious.
