Salt Lake City PD chief upset

He is pissy that the citizens of SLC are angry that one of his officers jumped a fence into Sean Kendall's backyard and killed his dog. How dare the citizens demand accountability from its employees.

The cops were looking for a "missing" child that was found sleeping in her own house.

This is the video of the owner arriving at his home.

    Maybe a big citizens' posse needs to invade the cop shop looking for a lost dog, and act the same way!

    killing a police dog in the performance of his duty is legally the same as killing a police officer - the police dog is considered an officer. why is the killing of a civilian dog, defending his home, not the same as killing a civilian?

    Read the book "Animal Farm"; it explains it pretty well.
    Animal Farm: "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others".

    Along with that, Achilles and Spartacus, the two great drum horses serving in the mounted bands of the British Army's Royal Horse Guards are commissioned Majors in Her Majesty's service.

    You never know about this sort of thing. I think it is sad that an innocent dog had to die because an officer probably got panicked when he saw a 100+ Pound dog. But this needs investigating. Sometimes it sucks to be a dog and sometimes it sucks to be a cop.

    The important issue here is the cop entered a fenced yard without a warrant and without contacting the home owner. He then shot the dog. The cops were looking for a missing kid that was found sleeping in her own home. Just another example of cops performing piss-poor investigation, violating the rights of the citizenry, and getting his rocks off by killing a dog.

    Exactly where I come down on this.
    Knowledge is essential to living freely and fully; understanding gives knowledge purpose and strength; wisdom is combining the two and applying them appropriately in words and actions.

    If the ignorant fool jumped over the fence to get in, he could just as easily have jumped over the fence to get OUT. If he opened a gate to get in, then he could have exited the same way. He bugged out after shooting the dog; knew he'd screwed up and left to avoid the inevitable.
