You understand I am young? LOL Nice attempt to condescend.
Ignoring that, I never once have said I think all police are good. I never once have made a post about how wonderful all police are.
I will continue to respond to ignorant and bashing posts like this that are posted out of mere spite (or boredom in this case) out of respect for my boyfriend and all the police officers who risk their lives every day for people like the OP who put them down constantly.
Like I have said many times before, a dog's life is not worth injury to a human. A dog IS a deadly weapon and while I don't believe in hitting my dog, I have never been a K9 Officer.
If this dog was not trained thoroughly and did not "OUT" correctly, the same people bashing police officer "cruelty" on this post would be bashing "poor training"
I am not condoning the treatment of this animal. I am merely saying that neither you nor I were there, and neither you nor I are k9 police trainers.
Continue to read poorly written news stories on the internet in your free time...but I would suggest not bringing them up when speaking with friends that have any amount of intelligence, unless you are questioning the validity of the story.
Did you actually watch the video? Because it really sounds like you are actually DEFENDING the way this dog was treated??
As for your comment about being one of the "few" that are related to an LE. That is patently untrue and either you just don't pay attention to what other people post on here or you have a very short memory. We have several LE officers including K9 officers both active and retired and we have quite a few who are in someway related to one- including me, as I have told you multiple times.
It is your blind willingness to excuse cops, no matter what, that is really offensive. Cops are human too. Yes, they put their lives on the line but it is a job they CHOSE to do. Therefore they absolutely should be prepared to conduct themselves to a higher standard to set the example for the public they serve. And when they are caught breaking the law they should be punished just like anyone else, if not harsher.
And if you do not believe there is a "good old boy system" than you do not have your eye open or perhaps since your BF is not yet out of the Academy, you have not seen it in action. A friend of mine is married to a cop. A cop who used to have a drinking problem. Several years ago he was pulled over driving home drunk. BECAUSE he was a cop, he was not charged- absolutely nothing. They called his wife to come get him and that was it. It was not even reported to his higher ups. So please don't act like cops don't get treated differently. They do.
Had this video been made by someone who worked as Walmart, people would have been calling for his head and he most likely would have been arrested and criminal charges of animal cruelty filed. Instead he was just fired and now the court wants to give him his job back. That doesn't even make sense.
