The only thing this officer did wrong was allowing someone else to be around when he did the deed.
If more witnesses would step forward we could clean up the crazy trash in police departments.

So you agree the crazy trash needs to be weeded out in police departments?

Ok,I guess it depend's on what "crazy trash' you're speaking of.If you're referring to the officer doing in the injured cat, No he does not need be weeded out.
Let's all get over it and let the dead cat rest in peace,And let this officer get back to his job,I'am sure if he had it to do again the turn out would be different.

If any citizen in this state did what that sorry excuse for a cop did, I would expect him to spend time in jail, and be ENRAGED if he were given a slap on the wrist. This cop should go to jail for the MAXIMUM amount of time possible! A cop is supposed to: know the law; enforce the law; apply the law; and PROTECT members of the community. This cop broke every single rule of what makes a good cop. They need to be the examples, not examples of cruel, criminal behavior.

Here we go with the Bla, Bla, Bla crap all the talk in the world will never work, I grew up on a farm where we had to KILL cats and dogs all the time, when they were of no use, crippled or old. All the cop had to do is pick the cat up by the head and whip it around a coulple of times and break it's neck, Life over, Just remember it's just an animal not one of your children. That's the problem with society today, people treat their animals better than their children.
You are a cruel, inhuman monster. I know people who lived on farms; hell, my mother grew up on one, and THEY didn't treat their animals that way. I don't know what kind of filth raised you or what kind of sewer you crawled out of, but I hope you don't have any children to pass that evil on to.

what is worse; taking the severly injured cat to the vet most likely causing significant pain in moving the cat or knocking the cat unconcience as the officer was more than likely intending to do. I am sure he did not regularly practice proper humane blows to cats as part of his training therefor mosrt likely did the best he knew how. Also I am sure he really did not take pleasure in the event and was hoping for a quick painless death to the poor animal. Unfortunately The cat did not appear to die instantly but it also suffered only a short while if it was not unconcience.
At most he used poor judgement in the eyes of some for not taking it to a vet. At best he used good judgement for not shooting it and risking others from the discharge of his fire arm.
You all are fortunate hypocrits that you can sit back and judge this individual with out having been in their shoes.
Are you a vet? How did he know the cat couldn't actually be saved? There are vets open all night not so far from there where he could have taken the cat, so even if the cat needed to be euthanized, he could have actually been humanely euthanized, not brutally killed! Beating an already suffering animal to death 20 times is neither humane nor a blessing! Just how much suffering do you think that cat endured while he was being beaten over and over and over again almost 20 times?
