YouTube removed the fucking video, no surprise. But I found a page with the video still up. The officer is on paid vacation/leave of course. The cop appeared to be on some high ground and there was another dog next to it. Of course the cops say the video doesn't show the whole story, then where is the part of the video with it acting aggressively? The dog was treated like a vicious attack German Shepherd in Call of Duty.
I guess it is like Obama refusing to release 2,100 pictures of torturing suspected terrorists, to protect the police state from bad PR it generates at ease with any transparency. Here is an excerpt from the end of the article showing a slew of similar incidents where the officers are often cleared of any wrongdoing. They shoot people often with the same results.
Last July, an Idaho police officer was cleared of shooting a small black lab sitting inside a vehicle despite telling investigators that the dog was a “vicious” pit bull.
Several months prior, a Michigan police officer shot and killed a 10-month-old puppy during a foot pursuit after the dog allegedly “charged,” causing the officer to “fear for his life.”
A Pennsylvania state trooper shot and killed a family’s dog only days earlier as it stood just feet from a 5-year-old’s bedroom window after officers mistakenly went to the wrong home.
An Idaho officer was cleared of wrongdoing as well last February after provoking and killing a man’s service dog outside a 9-year-old’s birthday party.
