Of course I realize that I have better odds of winning the Powerball than I do of this occurring. I certainly did not let it affect my sleep today. I also have better odds of winning the lottery than of being accidentally killed by police involved in a high speed chase of bad guys on my way to work tonight. That does not mean that I don't want police using the utmost caution every time they decide to pursue someone.

I also don't like what seems, at least to me, the apathetic attitude by the police departments when the police screw up and a dog dies. Because dog are considered "property", it seems like they just go "oops my bad. sorry about your dog". There needs to be some sort of recourse or compensation when these things happen. Not the "oh well. it was just a dog" attitude.

Don't do that! You can sit sit on the Charmin while popping the bubble wrap with the bullets.

What? And take your chances with the Zombies? Are you utterly insane?

Who is compensating though, I mean really? The police officer? The department? The municipality? The chances are it will be the people that the government represents. How is that for an insult to injury? Not only are you now worried about how your dog might get killed because the police killed your neighbor's dog, but now the city has been sued for the value of the dog, and they are starting to recognize that dogs have a value beyond their purchase price, which is good in general, but, if the city has to come up with 100k because they wrongfully killed a dog, then that is coming out of your pockets. Not the whole amount, but your local taxes will increase if the city is sued for enough things. So, while we want for people to be compensated for having lost their dog, it is the people that will be paying for that.

If the police officer lets the dog bite him before he shoots, well, there too medical expenses, insurance rates, time off work, etc, that is a huge cost to the people. No, the dog owner should NOT have to pay if a police officer comes onto the property and gets bit. Sorry, the dog is protecting the property, and no one should be faulted for having a dog that bites an intruder. So who does all this compensating? We do.

If cops are bitten and cost the city money due to loss of time, medical costs or insurance hikes, then BSL is going to rear its ugly head. If the city is sued because cops defended themselves, I can see BSL and ownership requirements increasing.

I was late to work this morning because there was a funeral procession as far as the eye could see for a fallen police officer who lost his life last week in the town I work in.

I couldn't help but sit in my car and cry as they passed.

It's weird the thoughts you have at that moment...I thought of this thread for a second.

I also thank Lou Castle for his contribution to this thread.

Same here, Courtney.

But the flip side - 'Bodie' has had his last surgery & looks to return to work in December. (Bodie is a Sacramento K9 injured in the line of duty - was shot thru a forepaw & jaw. He's been a HUGE hit with the kids - an elementary school even raised funds to go toward his medical bills.)
