I am bloody sick that we allow and pay these cops to kill troubled people and animals at their will. Police need to be retrained how to handle public matters. First of all the police need to get off their bums to get in shape phyically and mentally. Secondly learn how to use the tools of their trade, with guns excluded. If they cant disarm a person wheeling a knife with a nightstick or with self defense then they need to be looking for another job. Police should not be allowed to carry guns period. If the situation calls for deadly force then call in the swat team, Police should keep firearms locked in their car trunks. High speed chases should be curbed also. Call for air support ! DUH ! Its time for the Police to MAN UP instead of hiding behind Smith & Wesson! Stop this police state crap before its to late ! Its a SAD SAD world that we have accepted from these control freaks ! STOP IT !

You are obviously one of those "troubled" people you speak of. You are not being realistic. Police should not be allowed to carry guns huh? So when a perp is pointing his gun at the police he is supposed to say "hey buddy, can you wait a minute while I call up the SWAT team?"

This is not to defend what this cop did at all. He is totally in the wrong. And his comment to calm down and you can get another dog is ridiculous, rude, so wrong. But just like you can't judge a whole race of people based on the actions of some you cannot judge a whole police force on the actions of a few.
