Honestly I don't see the humour at all; I seriously am annoyed at the owners. They are admitting the dog gets out often, they did admit they realized they were entirely in the wrong and that their dog could have caused serious harm to befall one or more of the police officers by being such a distraction. Hopefully this will be enough of a wakeup call for them to become responsible owners and ensure that the dog doesn't get out again. Maybe this will be a good thing and more owners that otherwise wouldn’t have thought of their actions will be taking notice and changing
The sad thing is as I sit here and think about it, what would have happened if the pug was shot. The uproar and outage over that 'harmless' little dog being shot by the big bad police would have gone viral, and honestly in that situation I personally would not have blamed the officers one bit if they used force to remove the distraction. Would I have been sad and angry, yes, but at the owners of the dog not the police. Especially once the truth that the dog was allowed to roam often was let out. What if the suspect had taken advantage of the distraction and shot an officer or more or the k9 while they were focused on that little dog rather than the armed person. What if the K9 had reacted before the officers could intervene and bit or killed the dog or the handler. The whole situation is downright dangerous and all because of a little dog and owners who didn't bother to contain it.
