The man was arrested, put on leave without pay, and charged with felony animal cruelty, and other officers were appalled. Let's not attack all police officers because there are some bad apples out there. No one is covering up for the guy or making excuses for him. It sounds like justice will prevail here.
I am sorry the woman's dog got loose. I am sorry she bit a jogger. I am sorry that the dog met up with the wrong police officer, and it is highly unlikely that that police officer will ever be in the position to abuse his authority again.
