Are you serious? The dogs are vicious and attacked, they should both be put down. How would you feel if you were attacked? Idiot.

Thank You for getting that Heroin out of Latrobe! Keep up the good work. I hope that you both are not injured to bad from getting attacked. And yes the pit bull should have been put down. He unfortunately was used in a crime and attacked two officers. It is sad sometimes that animals and loved ones get hurt when drug addicts get busted. They should think about that.

I heard the dog never made it out of the house, to even attack the cop! They shot him in his head he turned around and walked to his bed and died!!! The other dog had a hailo around her neck how did it attack rocky? Any dog would protect its home when there's people screming and dogs barking! Why didn't they let them put the dog away? I heard it was a 10 year old family dog!! Hope they can sleep well at night knowing they killed a boys dog!! PIGS!
I hop the drug dealing parents can sleep well knowing their actions are responsible for the police having to shoot the dog

obviously you are ignorant to police work. Officers are going into a house for a drug bust and you want the drug dealers to ask the officers to stop them from doing their jobs and wait to secure the dogs. Okay, sure the officers would let them do that....not!!!! Only a moron would say something like that. That would be like giving them a free pass to dispose of all their drugs. Think before you put something on here.

I have to agree with "truth." Regardless of the dog incident, what kind of parents have 95 bags of heroin in a house with their children????? It doesn't really matter, the way the system is, they all get out by ratting. This is the real problem. All this does is put police on the scent of someone they have to build up another case for... while the original perps enter society again to find another source and continue dealing. It's a never ending cycle. I have a wild and crazy idea... how about we treat this for what it is initially, A CRIME??????

Most of you guys have it all wrong! The police really messes this one up. They lied! This is not what happened at all. Im really ashamed to have them as officers after hearing the story told from numerous witnesses ! Rest in peace diesel!
