The officer is well within his right to dispatch the dog. The dog was acting aggressive and in a manner that the officer should feel like he was in jeopardy of bodily harm to himself and the other officers. When the dog lunged at the officer, said officer was simply acting in the best interest of the other officers and potentially the owners safety. The man being detained should have taken himself and his pet out of the situation before it came to him being detained. No one to blame but the owner for putting himself and his pet in the situation to begin with.
People need to realize that the situation is very fluid and tensions/stress are at a very high level and self preservation is the number one goal for all parties involved. For every case like this that a pet is dispatched their are 100 in which the pet is not and lives to see another day.
Be thankful there are officers who do protect and serve and that is why we as citizens are living in a relatively safe environment every day. It is very easy to watch this and say you would not do anything with the dog when you were not there. Just like all of us here are human, cops also make bad decisions. Try giving the guy some grace since he is willing to be in dangerous situations every day and you are not.
One last thing, all of this could have been avoided should the dog owner have used his brain and not put himself into the situation to begin with.
Thanks for the wins and the players you drafted that are being left behind, beason, davis, johnson, stew, d will, and otah. I am glad you still fought to the end even when there was nothing to play for. In some ways I hate to see you go, but it is time. Thanks Foxie for taking 10 minutes to talk to me after OTA's just to answer a few questions. Thanks for remembering my name 2 weeks later when I ran into you at the BWM dealership. Thanks for being 1st class and a man with integrity when no one else would do the unpopular things.
1- is fox on the hot seat- he said everyone is on the hot seat in the nfl and your play determines how hot it is.
2- they asked how he would like the touches between he and dlo to be. he said "if it aint broke dont fix it", they kept trying to get him to say he wanted the ball more. he did good to avoid this question.
3- the clausen pick. stew said he was a little surprised but the value was there. he stuck up for matt and said matt will be fine and has a great huddle presence.
