Sean Austin is hardly 'OFFICER' material.He exhibited his decision making abilities and they were wrong. And please tell us precisely what these men and women go through in their daily activities that are any worse than any other job. Chasing dogs? Writing speeding tickets? Tasing people in tree stands and paralyzing them? Polishing your lieing tactics? The hardest part of being a cop is carrying that HUGE chip around on their shoulder. They are the ones that instigate the adrenalin rush in nearly ALL of their encounters. Get your head out of the 'made for television' garbage like "COPS" and realize this mess isn't for entertainment. It's people's lives that are ruined because of the poor judgement and bad attitudes displayed by these high level incompentent 'public servants."I am really shocked at the lack of support for our officers. Most of you throwing this officer under the bus have no idea what the men and women go through on a daily/nightly basis. It was a tough call and he made it on his own. He weighed his options and made the best decision he could in this situation. It is unfortunate that family pet was taken but that was the officer's best options. To the officer that made this call, I support you and the rest of our officers. Thank you.
People like Sean Austin and April Samples should be lose their jobs. Sean simply because he's incompetent, April because she is a liar and grossly violates her oath of office.
