Really? Sounds like someone just wanted to get rid of a neighbor's dog and make it look like self-defense. Well what could be expected coming from someone who chains/ties his dog up outside. Why own a pet if you can't treat it like one? ASPCA should come after this low life officer!

It's permissable in the county to open fire on anything. The present acting chairman will fight you to retain that second admentment right. The previous chairman could have made it against the law to open fire in a neighborhood. But he had a congress seat in mind and did not want to upset anyone.
Happens with people and children just the same. Its all legal.

Well, homeowners need to keep their pets on their own property. Seriously, it is annoying and with all the welfare bums with pitbulls its even more of a pain. They see it in rap videos and think its cool. Sorry your dog got blasted, but keep it under control next time.

Sounds just like something a trigger happy cop would do...Did the Jerk X-Cop really feel he had to shoot the dog 3 times?!!The dog wasn't dead enough after the first shot?!! This idiot needs to face time for this horrendous crime....very sad situation for Coty and his family.

N he shouldn't face time...he was protecting his property! Hippy tree hugging idiots need to get off his case. Tell the dogs owner to keep their dog under control. Simple as that!

Why is it that this MORON COPS stories DO NOT coroborate? What he told the police has several discrepencies with what he told the news this morning! He is a pet owner himself, who does NOT take care of his own animal. Neighbors all summer long had to give his chocolate lab water and untangle it from the swingset it was tied up to! You were scared for your childrens safety????? How the hell do you think we feel with a gun weilding psycho cop in the neighborhood? The presence of a police officer should be comforting not scary! I guess this is an example of Myrtle Beaches "Finest" hard at work! Oh and Capt Obvious.....I would LOVE for you with all of your information and wisdom to tell me and the rest of the Southgate Community who the hell in this neighborhood is on welfare? I've never heard of people on welfare owning $150,000 homes!

the people I talked too said that they perceive this young cop as your typical punk azz egomaniacal barney bad azz immature little man with a complex and poor social skills that could have easily handled this differently.
I can only wonder if he perhaps he was continualy having problems with the neighbor and felt as if the neighbor did not have any respect for him, so instead of simply making a phone call he took matters into his own hands. Respect is earned and is a two way street, don't ya think.
Maybe one day when Barney Badazz grows up and gets a little bit less egotistical and more mature he will look back and realize what a cowardice thing he has done. I say this since so far now one with any credibility has ever said anything bad about this dog that Barney claims was a threat.
I truly would like to know the true story here But like I have said many times now, you can not count on the local Murder Beach controlled media propaganda machine for any real truth.
I hope that the man whose dog was killed will also look at his part in this.
These New Americans no longer have respect for any thing or anyone.

Then again maybe the man with the dead dog knows more about this heartless Robo cop than has yet been told.

Yep, its just more of what Murder Beaches finest has to offer.
Some one needs to clean house and get ride of the bad cops in the seedy city.

P.S. if you are truly in danger then yes you do have the right to defend yourself. The problem is that in today world with so many punks and cowards these loser will shot you even when no real threat exist. This so called cop is the only one that will know in his own heart deep down inside if what he did was justified or not. If it was not he is most likely destine to have to drink or use drugs go silence the guilt that a normal mentally healthy person would surely be felling. So with all good Karma, he will reap what he sews.

I too have always owned dogs and am a very good trainer and from what I understand the dog that was Murdered by the off duty Murder Beach policeman has also had a lot of special training as well.
Nope genius the dog was not shot in Murder Beach but the man that murdered the dog does work for the Murder Beach police department and he does carry a gun. It may have been a dog today but it could just as easily be a citizen tomorrow.

Some times they just get out. All the neighbors will tell you that this dog that was murdered was a great dog and they will also tell you that everyone in the neighborhood knew that the dog was friendly and harmless , but then you like the cop most likely really do not care now do you?
Yep this punk coward egotistical barney bad azz cop chose to Murder it rather than simply take it home or go to his neighbors and tell him to get the dog and take it home.
Just look at the picture of this guy. I would say a picture is worth a thousand words. You can tell by looking at this little man just what type of barney he is.
I do not know what twisted news you watch and I seriously doubt that you even care how pathetic and slanted the Murder Beach media is, but if you did care then you would do a little research and you would quickly find that this punk rookie cop did not need to murder this dog.
You may feel comfortable with such an in competent group of cops their in Murder Beach until the day you end up getting screwed, then you just might change your tune.

I would submit that you are either new to the area or very stupid,other wise you would remember that a few year ago an innocent black man named Shawn Taylor was falsely arrested for an alleged attempted abduction that most likely never ever really even happened in the first place and yet your fine police force that knew he was innocent within the first week waited over 4 month before dropping the charges and these clowns never even explained just how it was that this Randa Massey girl just happened to pick this specific man out of a photo line up.
The slow minded Greyhem Gremlin citizens of Murder beach never even want to know how the corrupt police line up was conducted and never wanted answers as to how the police in the seedy city could have ever arrested an innocent man simply on the word of some stranger who bogus story was never ever substantiated.

Yep you must be so proud to live in such a scummy bassackwards town that makes Mayberry RFD look like they where ahead of the times.

I would not be surprised if this loser cop ends up with a new job working in Atlantic Beach, in the very near future.

While I can sympathize with the veteran's mental condition, I cannot sympathize with his predicament here.

The police officer made attempts to have this dealt with beforehand, attempts he shouldn't have had to make in the first place in dealing with someone else's pet on his own property.

If the owner was unable to keep the dog in his own yard and away from others', the responsibility falls on his own shoulders.

If you really care for your pets, people, take care of them.

This is a saddening event that should not have had to happen.

The first question I have is whether or not it is true that the policeman is known to not take very care of his own dog? Is it true that several times the other neighbors have had to go into his yard to give his dog water or is that just a lie, because that is the story that is going around?

Also would it not have been not only better but much less reckless for the policeman to have used a stick, baseball bat, golf club, tennis racket or anything to fend the dog off rather than to be shooting a rifle off in the neighborhood? Where did the stray bullets end up? what if he had hit some body with all those rifle bullets flying around.

Say what you like but shooting the dog was the wrong way to handle it.

Also what about Horry County? why did Horry County not do something before it came to this?
I suppose a freedom of information request will yield a lot more answers, right?

IT seems as though the people are way less worried or threatened by the dog than they are the outrageous policeman.

No need to be ware of dogs, it is the cop you have to look out for.

This is a total abuse of power on the cops behalf. If i discharged my weapon in my neighborhood while children were getting off a bus id be in jail. Also it doesnt say much for our officers if it takes four shots to put down a defensless animal, sways more to being a masachist. With all the statements given by the neighbors it showed the dog was never a threat. Maybe if i go to the police academy i can get a badge and have a hollier than thou attitude and shoot whatever the fuck i want. This is extremely upsetting that our vets come home from war, have ptsd, try to recover and this kind of bullshit happens with no reprocussions in the meantime. Karma is a real bith.

NO he is not on welfare. But I'm sure he wishes he was like I am. NIGHTSHIFT is a Police Officer and he talks about Myrtle Beach with his nonsense. He's been in so much trouble for not being ethical and normal. He thinks he knows everything.
He doesn't own a dog, since he can't afford one. Pay no attention to him.
You are clearly some type of mental nut job. Nothing you say makes sense.

Where in the world did you get the idea that I am a cop. Just because my name is NIGHTSHIFT, that does not make me a cop. That is just one of your low-ass-umptions.
