The officer should face the same charges we would get if we shot a police canine coming at us! He thought it was a "pit bull", yeah right, what "bullsh!t"!! He is definately not competent enough to be a police officer! He can't even respond to the correct address to which he was dispatched. If he is so overwhelmed by a medium sized dog running up to him in a moment of excitement, that he feels he needs to discharge his weapon, then he definately doesn't need to carry a badge or a gun. He recklessly and negligently fired his weapon, ultimately claiming the life of an innocent couples pet. Shame on you!!
I agree with you. As right as you are, that doesn't bring the family's pet back.
I'm inclined to side with previous posters and exercise my right to protect self, family, and property. If the courts do not agree, guess Bubba and I are gonna fight over who gets the top bunk.
I would be outraged if faced with this situation. Although the cop would have had to decide whether to shoot at my dog or the owner pointing the gun at him.

What kind of training does this officer have? He said that he thought that this dog was a pitbull... it was a border collie. And you wonder why some people hate cops. I hope that the City of For Worth loses a lot of money in the lawsuit and that this officer is assigned to traffic duty for a year. What an idiot!
To hell with that, he should be fired!
Forrest Gump is a rocket scientist compared to this dimwit.

That officer is a moron. First off, they went to the wrong address. Second, how can you possibly think it's a pit bull?!? I agree that he's making this up; he's probably scared of the consequences. The owner clearly stated: he told the officer the dogs aren't harmful and that he'd put them in the back yard.

The officer either made part of it up, or overreacted, or both. So if he can't keep calm with a dog, what's going to happen with a person?!?

I hope something gets done about this; you can't just kill someone else's dog and then get off scott free.
