Give me a break , deadly force for a grawling ,teeth bearing fat yellow lab , in his own backyard ,protecting his owners property. Whats next is officer Morales going to shoot the next dog that bears it's teeth or grawls when he comes to your home to take a report, you better call the station ahead and verify officer Morales is not coming, because since he is afraid of his own shadow anyone or thing that scares him is getting a lead shower...

I would think if I were responding to a burgerly i would have my gun in my hand not mace. in a blink of an eye is it a lab or an more aggressive dog.

I immagine the officer feels bad

People, think about it ,don't most dogs bark when they sense an intruder ? Wouldn't that bark somehow let Barney Fife , I mean Officer Mark Morales ,know that there is a dog close by and maybe he needs to back up for his own safety ,since dogs can be protective of their owners property. Also all you people with your what a tough job an officer has and he does his job not knowing if he will return home ,sniffle ,tear tear , WOW ,I think I am going to cry. How about this knucklehead officer doing his job without coming to my home and killing my dog !!!!I can say this because I am a former deputy sheriff from Los Angeles, and we would have welcomed a vicious dog or grawling fat yellow lab , as comic relief compared to chasing the gangbanger thugs , Meth heads , and all around bad guys, so please stop trying to justify this cops bonehead actions.

those dogs were nothing but attack dogs. they barked and nipped whenever people walk on the sidewalk outside of their house. the police officer was protecting himself. why were the dogs kept in the garage anyways? because their only purpose was to protect from intruders. get real.

It's been reported that this officer was there before. What hasn't been reported is how many times he was there. So you are assuming something that may not be true.
What do you consider "due care". Are you a cop?(Obviously not based on your inflamatory posts) Are you forgetting that he was dispatched there for an alarm call? He has a duty to be on that property to determine if there are intruders in this guy's home. It has been reported that this homeowner had an "invisible fence" for his dogs. So my guess is the officer proceeded towards the back of the house without knowing the dogs were out of the house. Dogs came around the house and the rest is history.
You are missing my point. The dogs were allowed to be there - it was their yard. The cop was the intruder. Are you telling me there was no other way for the cop to investigate the "emergency call" but to jump the fence where the dogs were ?

An urban legend maintains that Nabors married Rock Hudson in the 1970s. In fact, the two were never more than friends. According to Hudson, the legend originated with a group of "middle-aged homosexuals who live in Huntington Beach" who sent out joke invitations for their annual get-together. One year, the group invited its members to witness "the marriage of Rock Hudson and Jim Nabors," at which Hudson would take the surname of Nabors' most famous character, Gomer Pyle, becoming "Rock Pyle." Those who failed to get the joke spread the rumor. Is Mike Holzheimer Gay? Mike Holzheimer is NOT gay. At the time Nabors was dating his boyfriend, Stan, whom he eventually married; Hudson was also gay but closeted, and because of the fear that one or both of them might be outed, Nabors and Hudson never spoke to each other again.[52]
Tasing a dog is impractical
