What do you have when you give a narcissist a gun and a license to kill? You have a cop, in this case a Saskatchewan cop. Sleepy little Saskatchewan, where people seldom lock their doors, you can watch your kid run away from home for 3 days, and where people move to get away from the violence of the big city.
This incident happened last summer but the video went viral a few days ago after being released by LiveLeak, you can see the video at the LiveLeak link. I must warn you that it is very hard to watch and I was appalled and in tears watching it.
The only reason I watched it the first time was because my son brought it to my attention and he was so upset. I watched it a second time to make sure I was seeing it clearly because I can not believe this cop did this.
Another news article says this:
When asked Tuesday, RCMP told Global News they addressed the incident and the video last year. RCMP said Cote’s court proceedings were complete and would not confirm how the incident played out or address RCMP protocol in such situations.
RCMP said the dog was shot and killed during the arrest after the animal attacked an RCMP police service dog.
In the video you can see the dog is laying in the grass with it’s tail wagging and the police dog is the one lunging at the leash and almost out of control, it looks far from injured to me. I don’t care why the cops were there and I don’t care if the guy they arrested as the worst asshole on the face of the earth or who the woman was, the dog did not deserve to be shot in cold blood.
I am a pacifist, I hate violence of any kind and didn’t even spank my kid, but if a cop ever did that to my dog I would lose it and they would probably have to shoot me because I would have attacked the fucking cop. Excuse my language but I beside myself with outrage that the cops have buried this for a year!! and say it is “dealt” with. In other words they got away with murder. The cop that pulled the trigger is a cold hearted bastard that shot that dog out of some desire to teach the woman screaming a lesson.
Even IF the black dog had attacked the police dog, it was on his home property and he was NOT attacking at the time he was shot.
I remember when I got pulled over in Surrey by the cops and one came to the driver’s window while the other went to the passenger window with a flashlight. Kato my dog went nuts, growling, barking, and lunging at the CLOSED door. The cop started screaming to get my dog under control as his pulled his gun and aimed it at kato through the windshield. Once again I repeat; that my dog was inside my truck, the doors were closed and the only window open was my window so I could talk to the cop. There was me and my dog in the truck, it was his job to protect me, he was only doing his job, he didn’t know a good guy from a bad guy, yet this cop was prepared to shoot my dog through the windshield. I screamed at the cop to put his gun away and I would have a lot better chance of getting my dog under control. Then my truck started to roll back and the cop started to scream at me “Don’t you ram my car! Don’t you ram my car!!” and the other cop reaches for his gun. I looked around to see who was going to ram the cops car and noticed my truck was rolling back. My dog and I almost got shot because I had forgotten to put the truck in Park because I got so flustered with the cop threatening to shoot my dog.
I wonder what the cops story would have been that night. Me and my dog both inside the truck, unarmed, truck not even running, and shot to death. I am sure they would have come up with some story and it all would have been brushed under the rug. I was a 50 year old woman with no criminal record, driving an insured vehicle, on my way home, minding my own business, pulled over in a routine road check.
I would never call the cops for anything any more, I am too afraid of being shot or losing my dog. I am afraid to get pulled over for speeding and I am petrified that my son will be pulled over because he has tattoos and that would be enough for some cop with an axe to grind to decide he wanted to teach him a lesson. Big man that he is, armed, hiding behind the fact that he is above the law because he is the law. It is all bullshit!! and the cops have to be held accountable for this kind of shit.
The fact that they are being filmed doesn’t deter them in the least because nothing ever happens to them. Is it any wonder people are fed up and starting to fight back? I am not saying it is right to kill some innocent cop sitting in his squad car, but I’m not surprised it is happening,
Who protects us from the police?
I want that cop to face charges and I want the police to be accountable and the citizens of the world should be just as outraged over the death of this dog as they were Cecil the lion, even more so because it was shot by a person who took a vow and gets paid to serve and protect.
