In other cities there’s cops who are actually committing sexual assaults on duty. That pug is lucky.

Pug the Police

Do you really need that many cops in a standoff for a suspect who robbed a Subway Sandwich Shop? He obviously wasn't going for the big time.

Five stars of amazement that they didn't just shoot it. I guess it's because they were outdoors and knew there were cameras rolling.

That hasn't stopped them before. This dog must have some sort of super power.

Why would they shoot it? I'd understand if it was a big Pit Bull or something that could do some damage, but with their armor and the K-9, there's really not much a pug can do except be a barking distraction. It's like if a kid ran onto the scene and started harassing the cops, would they shoot him or her vs. a full-grown person?

maybe if it was a black pug

That hasn't stopped so-called law-enforcement officers from shooting poodles and dachsunds and other small dogs. Like there was this case in Georgia where two probation officers where visiting a woman to check on her son and they were approached by the woman's terrier and one of the officers, described in documents as being 6'3 and weighing 300lbs took his sidearm out and shot the dog once in the chest because he was "afraid for his life".

And to quote from this one article on the subject:

"When police officers shoot dogs, departments usually deem the shooting justified if the officer felt threatened by the animal. But an officer's perception doesn't always mean the animal actually was a threat. In recent years, police officers have shot and killed chihuahuas, miniature dachshunds, Wheaton terriers, and Jack Russell terriers. Last month, a California police officer shot and killed a boxer puppy and pregnant chihuahua, claiming the boxer had threatened him. The chihuahua, he said, got caught in the crossfire. When a San Bernardino, Calif., woman called police to report a burglary in progress behind her house last month, they responded, jumped her fence to confront the burglars, then shot her dalmatian mix, Julio. He survived. Police officers have also recently shot dogs that were chained, tied, or leashed -- obviously posing no real threat to officers who killed them."

Besides, law enforcement types almost never get in any trouble when they murder people, so what do you think will happen when some sociopathic bully with a badge wearing body armor kills your dog because he or she claims they felt "threatened" by the way your Yorkie or beagle padded slowly, and vaguely in their direction.

Cops shoot dogs all the damn time.

In the second video, the owner says she fully expected them to shoot the dog, because it would be a distraction in a situation where they could get shot. I imagine, though, when you're dealing with an unstable, armed suspect barricaded in a home, you wouldn't want to start firing and freak him out.

That guy
And then we chooooched!!!

I fully expected it to get shot. I guess anything smaller than a beagle is usually safe from asshole police. Please, no one find a video to prove me wrong.

Count me among the "I thought he'd get shot" tally. Maybe I spend too much time on PoETV and my perception is skewed, but I was seriously surprised that they didn't kill him.
