See, I don't think the site is made up of people who either love cops or hate them. I think there are people everywhere in the middle.
If you cannot see the faults the dogs you have bred have, you are probably kennel blind. That means you will do nothing to deal with the problems. It is a bad situation. If you blindly believe that if a cop did something it must have been ok, then again, it is not a good place to be in, because you can't fix something if you can't see the leaks.
But as for cops shooting dogs. As for how cops tend to manage dogs in general, personally, I think that we are freaking out over a couple of isolated incidents.
I did drag it a little off topic when I took offense to the idea that you would have to be an LEO to question an LEO. But I think threads are going to jump around a bit, and I really don't see the problem with that. When a thread becomes fixated on a tangent and then gets nasty, well yeah that's a problem.
One last thought. When my SUV dropped dead on 480 just before rush hour, I called my sister and then the cops. They felt the best thing to do was to get me out of the vehicle and I could wait for the tow truck at a gas station -- hours of waiting in the vehicle meant that much more likely to get splattered in it. Thankfully no one hit my car. But the point of this story was that the cops asked me 4 separate times if I had a dog or dogs in the car. It was summer, and the dogs would have died in there. I think they wanted to make sure that I wouldn't be so distracted by the whole scenario that I would leave my animals to roast in the car. I didn't have any dogs with me. But the cops definitely were dog-people, we discussed their dogs on route to the gas station they were going to drop me at.
