Am I the only one that thinks this happens WAY to often in El Paso? It could be that the cops are trigger happy but I suspect that there are a lot of machismo morons out there with pitbulls trained to be mean or that have become mean after their stupid owners left them chained in a dirt lot forever. I'd rather see the owners get shot.

you're not the only 1... this whole country is a fascist trigger-happy post-911 cop junkyard, and it's time to reclaim the constitution and stop criminalizing the general public and lower the presence of these uniformed crooks, it's even bankrupting us

Well, to begin, I rescue a LOT of dogs & if the dog lunged at me, I would have put it down as well. I have been on the receiving end of an attack by a dog that I rescued (while my children watched). I don't believe people should just go around killing animals by no means. I do believe that vicious dogs need to be put down. Period. End of story.

Cruel and unusual punishment., didn't have to kill the dog. The officer needs more training.

I so appreciate clueless individuals who are too afraid to do the work an officer has to. I bet you second-guess football plays from your cozy chair too?
Get out on the street in uniform and deal with stupidity like yours and see how you react. I'm betting a lot that when a dog or suspect is charging you, you won't rely on some pepper spray.
