Its a sad story for both cop and dog and dog owner but there is way to much that plays into this besides just thinking the cop was trigger happy...
Kait, the officer was responding to a domestic disturbance. I would think they would not be "trigger happy" when responding to ma and pa kettle yelling at each other, or even shoving one another. He gets to a house where a man is playing frizbee and he doesn't stop to check his non-existant "common sense" or gps?? From the looks of it, the dog didn't weigh over 50 lbs. I know I would have waited to fire until the dog actually went for me -as in clearly attempted to attack.
