This officer saw one thing a pitt bull and panicked.Pitt bulls have gotten a bad rep for the way they have been breeded by people who know nothing about training any dog properly. I dont believe his neighbors are those types that I am speaking . Myself I have had at least 3 beautiful pitts and a wonderful rotty so maybe I am a little judgemental I just think he was a little to quick to the draw.
NYS TROOPERS ARE ABOVE THE LAW AND ASLEEP WHEN GOVERNORS CAVORT!

I myself am preparing myself to be prepared to cause some serious damage to any dog off it's leash who approaches within a certain number of feet of my personal space, what is wrong with dog owners who care nothing about the wellbeing of other people who may be afraid of dogs? Keeping dogs restained is the law, and it is a law that if not obeyed can cause harm to innocent people. A dog owner can tell me his dog is friendly all day, but that won't prevent a sudden primal urge in a dog. Owners of little dogs or historically nice dogs need to follow the law equally.
