I see cops episodes on east coast and the cops just run up on people and start choking them to make them spit some tiny quantity of drugs. Then the cops tell like 20 lies in a row to get the people to make a statement-In that case the cops are commiting much harsher crimes than the so called criminals.

Geeze.
I don't know many 3 year old's that could-would go up to a closed fence gate. Open it then would shut the gate behind him. Or be able to climb over the fence or dig and tunnel under it....

If that 3 years old's Father or any one of us did the exact same thing as that officer. Went looking for the lost child. Took out our legal register firearm. Then blew away the family pet. We would have been charged with trespassing on a secured property, animal cruelty, firing a gun (2 shots) in a residential area, made false statements about fearing for his life and who knows what other charges....

On the justice for Geist site. A neighbor said all the officer needed to do if he wanted to illegally enter was look over the fence and see in the yard there is a dog kennel. Then if he still insisted on going in stand by the opened gate before going in. Make a little noise to see if there were a dog. Then he could have just shut the gate. A lot of the neighbor's also own dogs. There was a much better probable cause that there was a dog in the yard then a lost 3 year old. But another Rambo-cop realizing they get away with doing what they want all the time goes in and blows away a family pet. He gets a pat on the head, a dog shooter merit badge. Then sent out on the streets again.....

I will give the SLC Police a Lot of credit for something. They have a SLC Police face-book "fan" page. They are letting everyone go on there and post exactly what they think of the situation and the officer that did it. They are now letting all the negative posts stay up (last time I checked). In addition none of the PD officers or family members are on there trying to intimidate anyone. In addition they are encouraging calls and e-mails. You get a form letter back but it's still good they are doing that....Contrast that to a few years ago where I live. There was a story of a NJ State Trooper titled Drunken trooper let off (10 times) often in Hamilton. The police and their sympathizers were on all the time trying to intimidate everyone. Same thing happens with every cop gets in trouble story......At no time would any comment not positive be allowed on a township police face-book page. I live in a Police State, NJ. Utah sounds like a good place to move if I ever get the $$$$.......

I was going to post this yesterday but was out of my mind with anger......

When are people going to finally have enough of Thug LEO's shooting-killing pets?? It happens once every 98 minutes. Go read about this one that went into a locked gated yard to execute a family pet yesterday https://www.facebook.com/JusticeforGeist

Since when are LEO's issued stiletto type knife's along with batons, tasers, pepper spray, and firearms??? I have no doubt this cop has used it before and or committed atrocities against people he's gotten away with....

He should have been arrested the second he slit that dogs throat. Or better yet some officer have the decency to stop him. Every one of them should have been fired. Unless one or two reported Bolger. Better late then never I guess. No doubt getting their stories (lies) in line.....

One other thing. How come you never hear of a Fireman killing someone's pet?? No matter what the size they just try and save them. If anything they are more liable to bite being scared out of their minds.....

>>>Just before they got to the scene, Bolger was overheard saying, "I'm going to gut this (expletive) thing," according to charging documents.<<< I hope this thing comes down with a horrid disease....

lalachka You can work towards that goal but it will never happen. People are people. Things happen. Someone is normal today and loses their mind tomorrow

all you have to do is look around

This is how they should all be, we shouldn't have to look around around. They are in positions to be trusted. There shouldn't be any bad apples in the bunch and the general population shouldn't have to worry if they might come across one of those bad apples. As a society we should not even have to accept the fact that there are some bad ones. When something like that becomes normal to see there is a problem. When we start to just look the other way and become blind to what is happening everywhere and more often everyday that is an issue.

Sarah~ Yeah this officer was obviously just not right in the head or something... I know there are more good officers than bad, my stepdad has worked for the Seattle police department for more than 20 years, he was really upset when I showed him the article.

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.
It happens way to often so it's hard to trust. I personally know officers that have shot dogs on purpose and talked about it later like its a joke. There used to be a time when I respected all officers, but that changed long ago. I highly respect those that help and do the job right. I read the stories and 90% of them are preventable and never should have happened. I have witnessed the police bringing a dog into the vet in the trunk of their car and I did let them know how disgusted I was with them. I used to find dogs and bring them to the police station and those dogs always found homes there. Then the next generation of police started coming in and the difference was so noticeable. I never had an issue with the old school police , but I do not nor do I pretend to care for the new school ones, I have no trust for them. Trust is earned, without trust there is no respect. I love reading good stories about police because it gives me hope.
