Why I decided that being a cop is no longer for me

I'm out. This was the straw that broke this camel's back:

So you're going to drop a career possibility based on the actions of one department? Sounds like a good choice then...

Also, (based on the facts provided by the department) this seems like a justified use of force. If they can defend that a individual/animal was putting a officer's life or safety in danger, they are allowed to use necessary force to ensure that officer's safety. I may be wrong, but other police officer's may want to comment on it to back me up or dispute.

unfortunately i deal with cops with itchy trigger fingers when confronted with a dog all the time... well i used to anyway

humane law enforcement officers (those that investigate animal cruelty cases) were supposed to investigate any incident where a cop shot a dog in DC.... this happens ALOT. unfortunately it really comes down to whether the cop felt his/her safety was at risk and it's pretty hard to question the judgement of a cop

with that said I can tell you there are TOO many cops who don't know jack shit about dogs and pull their gun before they accurately assess the behavior of the dog (which most can't really do in the first place). it's even worse with warrant squads... shoot first, ask questions later

needless to say MPD stopped having us do investigations into their shootings and they do their own internal investigations... hasn't been an unjustified dog shooting in a long time in DC

The article is pretty vague but you shot a dog for barking at you in its own house?

So the dog has a history of trying to attack people, and how is the kid traumatized if he didnt see it? Boo freakin hoo. Im sorry, people in the US need to get their panties pulled out of their crack and realize that shit happens. I say if a dog has a habit of trying to attack people and the owner does not control the animal, shoot the owner.
Sorry folks, if a dog is charging me, or someone else and I have a clear line on it I will shoot it.
