|My guess is there hasn't been any problems with Dogs in vehicles. God knows one of the informinational hypochondriacs would have googled a story and posted it by now if one existed.|

Do throw up up your resume, when you get a moment. So we can look at each fairly.
Bernard K. Melekian was announced as the Director of the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) by Attorney General Eric Holder on October 5, 2009. As Director of the COPS Office, Melekian leads an organization responsible for working closely with the nation’s state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies to enhance the safety of communities by advancing community policing. Director Melekian is committed to using COPS Office programs and resources to help law enforcement build relationships and solve problems, which he views as the cornerstone of effective community policing.
Mr. Melekian was the Police Chief for the City of Pasadena, California for more than 13 years before assuming leadership of the COPS Office. He also served with the Santa Monica Police Department for 23 years where he was awarded the Medal of Valor in 1978 and the Medal of Courage in 1980.
Director Melekian has been the recipient of numerous awards, and is recognized as a leader whose commitment to the advancement of community policing is built on years of patrol experience and a strong record of incorporating the needs of the community into police operations. In April, 2010 he was awarded the prestigious National Public Service Award by the American Society for Public Administration and the National Academy of Public Administration.
Melekian has served as the acting Fire Chief and Interim City Manager for the City of Pasadena. He was Chairman of the California Attorney General’s Blue Ribbon Committee on SWAT Policy, and is the former President of the 2009 Los Angeles County and California Police Chiefs Associations. Mr. Melekian has also served on the National Board of Directors of the Police Executive Research Forum.
Director Melekian holds a Bachelor’s degree in American History and a Master’s degree in Public Administration, both from California State University at Northridge. He is currently a doctoral candidate in Public Policy at the University of Southern California, and a graduate of the FBI National Academy and the California Command College.
Director Melekian served in the United States Army from 1967 to 1970. As a member of the United States Coast Guard Reserve, he was called to active duty in 1991 during Operation Desert Storm and served in Saudi Arabia. Melekian served a second tour of active duty in 2003. He retired from the Coast Guard Reserves in 2009, after 28 years of service.

Its been stated plenty of times that although many on this forum find dogs to be replaceable property, that is not the norm with most owners. I stated earlier that for a straight PR reason and the need for community respect that changes should be made, from a police standpoint. Policing a community that has low/no respect for those policing is a much much harder job.
This article I believe proves my point to the nature of the relationship between dogs and humans, for the majority of people. Further, I believe it also shows how quickly incidents like those posted can turn on the policing department.
My point here is even if dogs are property in a policing mind it should be on the mind of those policing how quickly your community support and respect can change on dime with these types of incidents.
Recently thousands of central texans lined streets in an unprecedented show of support during the funeral procession of senior patrol officer Jaime Padron, who was fatally shot while answering a call about an intoxicated person.
Just a few days later with most texans still rallying behind this fallen officer, Cisco was shot in his own home in error. Now the police chief has this to say.
Police Chief Art Acevedo was critical Wednesday of what he called a "mob mentality" response to the incident: "People are calling us and directing profanity-laced insults and threats toward our employees in writing and on telephone calls."
Texas state government has never in my opinion been thinned skinned. It is still my bet though that I will also be posting this police chiefs resume to the list of informational hypochondriacs soon.
Its simply not worth the damage from a departments standpoint, that can be caused in a blink of an eye, to continue with willy nilly.

|Here we go again:|
All these seems recent, too bad the owners didn't discover this thread started on April 26, 2012. If they had, their dogs might still be alive. I'd say this thread should become a PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT . But hey, there's no "unspoken" LEO policy to shoot dogs on private property, afterall WOULDN'T ANYONES LIFE BE IN DANGER, IF A 17 POUND DOG PUT TWO HOLES IN YOUR WORK PANTS!!!

|so he shot a little border collie mix and the excuse was the police thought it was a pitbull?|
The people on this forum will make some more excuses for him watch.

It never really stops, per se. Just little interest in talking or doing anything about it, here in this forum at least. But if the story below turns out to be accurate, now a sleeping dog has been shot, and as I stated earlier that was one of the only state of being, left. Chained, caged, fenced, noosed, crated, leashed, running away and now sleeping, so we are now complete.
But who cares, move along nothing to see here. I received a PM earlier in this thread stating no interest in this topic on this forum because it would/could endanger peoples income. Thats the american way now a days.

A St. Francois County, Missouri Police officer did this to my friends' dog while he was asleep on the porch. They didn't think this friend was home at the time. The cop pepper sprayed the dog then shot him through the roof of his mouth. Please help us put a stop to the animal cruelty displayed by our local law enforcement. The dog is missing several teeth and has a shattered jaw but is pulling through for now. Lawyers have been contacted, action is being taken. Please help us see to it that this "police officer" is held responsible for his actions.

Gigante because his offensive post is on the prior page.
OF course you want to drag on this pathetic overtaking of this thread to further cop bashing, very obvious.

Florence Texas the Chief of police answers a call regarding two dogs walking around a gas station. Upon arriving the dogs had gone home. She spotted one of the felons relaxing on his porch so she opened fire and killed the first dog because the people inside did not answer their door. She went around back and shot the other dog, twice, whom at the time was, wait for it, locked in a kennel. While on her shooting spree she threw a round into the house just missing a young woman and her child.

|I certainly agree that all people who choose to enter law enforcement need training in the "how to" in many areas. Animal situations should be included. They are trained to diffuse domestic violence and trained to administer first aid including delivering a baby, yet they are not family therapists or pediatricians or emergency room techs, so to say basic animal training is not important because they are not K9 officers is simply ignorant. My dogs are not just 'property" they are family members with the job to keep me safe and my home protected. I train my dogs to do their jobs and love them very much. To call them property is just wrong. They are the greatest gift you can be privledged to have. To parapharse an old cowboy saying, "There is nothing better for the inside of man, than the outside of a dog"-wet nose and all.|
