In response to Salt Lake Police Under Fire Over Dog Shooting:
This is just another example of an overzealous-trigger-happy cop, who needed to pound his chest by killing a fenced in dog.
There is no justification for the shooting, the dog was not running around loose, but was confined to its owners yard, like many other dogs are. Of course the dog was going to snarl at the officers, Fido did not know the difference between a police officer and a criminal.
Was the officers life in danger? Probably not.
This kind of reckless behavior by law enforcement seems to be escalating at a fever pitch. It seems to be hunting season for cops.
