Supporters of Justice for Titan there will be a march on March 18th from 3-5pm. Titan supports have reached worldwide attention and thats amazing! We need all Erie and surrounding areas that will come participate to join us. We need to raise awareness that police officers need animal handling training to protects all our pets. Unfortunately Titan is not the first nor the last that police officers have shot.

The Erie Police Department policy is to shoot all dogs on sight no hesitation, no questions. Period. It's wrong, but it is no secret. I was told this by one of the EPD Lieutenants years ago when I asked their help capturing a stray on the bayfront. He said if the EPD responded they'd kill it. The dog was eventually found drowned.

If the city had the appropriate number of animal enforcement officers, the dog and others killed before him would still be alive. If he were there, Rob Culbertson would have safely taken the dog into his custody, but sadly we only have one Rob Culbertson. Why we can't have someone cover the weekends is beyond me.

The fat slob of a mayor could care less. Don't waste your time with city council or the district attorney.

Time to hire a lawyer.

Also Heather, do you know if perchance Elspeth will be loosening the apron strings from the half-wit husband of hers? Every time she allows that dullard to speak hilarity ensues.

Why can the city pay some civilian dispatcher upwards of $45,000 in overtime, but they can't pay the animal enforcement officer OT to help
with pets that got loose after 5:00 or over the weekend? Better yet, give the EPD some dog wrangling gear and some training instead of this dangerous practice of discharging firearms in urban areas.

Every time some dog has to be killed by police because it was a threat to a HUMAN BEING, Heather and her "occupy" buddies go into "protest" mode.
First they float a petition on the web with inaccurate information about the incident and brag about all of the signatures they get. Some of the people who sign these misrepresentations of the facts actually live in nations where dogs are eaten and are considered delicacies. Crazy isn't it?
Then they break open the crayons, make signs and organize a march on "the man".
They call the media to cover their simplistic demonstration and talk about how they are going to investigate the killing with scientific data and hold "the man" accountable. They congratulate themselves on the coverage they received and all that they have accomplished, but they never ever come up with anything to prove wrong doing on the part of police.
Hey Heather and gang.....spoiler alert....you're not accomplishing anything other than making fools of yourselves. If you really care about these dogs being killed, instead of protesting the police, start protesting the people who owned the dog. It's their negligence that led to the dog's demise.

What complete bullshit.

Why didn't the police call the animal enforcement officer instead of gunning the dog down?

So if my dog's leash breaks and he gets away the cops have a right to put four bullets in him? Get a clue troll.

Please Join/Share/Invite this event to seek Justice for Titan who was shot and killed by Erie Police 4 times. After he was shot once and sought refuge in his own shed, police officers followed him and shot him 3 additional times. Eye witnesses said that he was not aggressive nor did he attack anyone. Titan had just moved into the eastside neighborhood that day from the west side. Reports that he ran the neighborhood often are false. He was in his new home only hours before police killed him. We seek Justice for Titan because when there is NO JUSTICE there is NO PEACE!!!

No justice no peace was the rallying cry in Los Angeles as they murdered 52 people. Are you threatening violence over this incident?

F your dog. Animals are beneath us ! Caring for an aniaml over any human is a waste of money and resources. A cop should risk getting bit for a stupid dog?? Id shoot em too ! Btw there is 1 guy that is the animal conrtol...one person in the whole dept. Why don't you take the money you waste caring for a dog and help a poor human? Or someone sick that doesn't have insurance?? You people hater

Jeremy,
In response to your question:
If your dog's leash breaks, the police DO NOT have the right to put four bullets in him.
However, if your dog's leash breaks and your dog starts attacking people, then the police have the right to put four, five, six, seven or as many bullets as it takes into your dog, to stop him from attacking human beings.
It would be nice if dogs would agree to sit down and stop attacking people until the animal enforcement officer can be summoned to the scene, but unfortunately it doesn't work that way.
But, if you think police should not take action against a vicious dog until the animal enforcement officer can be called to the scene, how many attacks by the dog would be considered "acceptable" during the wait? Is an attack on one more person acceptable? Two? Three people?
What if the dog runs from the area and attacks a child playing outside a few blocks away, maybe your child, is that okay?
I think you are the "troll" that needs to "get a clue" Jeremy. It's very simplistic to state that the police should have called and waited for the animal enforcement officer to arrive. If they could have contained the dog, I'm sure they would have done exactly that....they do it every day. But when the dog is an active threat, they would be negligent in their duties if they did not take action.
Here's a thought, the next time a dog breaks his leash, attacks people and gets shot by police, maybe you and your friends should protest the leash manufacturer instead of the police, after all it was their defective product that led to the dog's death.

I live in the neighborhood where the millcreek police shot a pit bull last year. A few days after the dog was shot the dogs owner and a few other people came through the neighborhood and tried to find out who called the police on his dog. All of the neighbors were afraid of the dogs owner so nobody admitted that the dog was aggressive, even though it was attacking people in the area. After that, all kinds of protests were staged and were based upon the belief that the dog wasn't attacking anyone, when in fact it was.
I think your motives are good Heather and your heart is in the right place, but when you go around making the kinds of claims you are making, keep in mind that you weren't there and neither was the dog owner, so you don't really know what happened. If you got your information from people in the neighborhood, keep in mind that the people might be telling you what you want to hear, just to avoid problems.
