NYPD Shoot Dog Trying To Protect Owner: Wrong? (GRAPHIC)

so as everyone knows,
the nypd will shoot you for no reason.
that’s just how it goes in the concrete forest.

i saw a video on wshh just now that disturbed me.
i wanted some opinions.
a homeless man is having a seizure and his dog is trying to protect him.
judging from the video,
the dog is doing it’s job by staying by it’s owner’s side.
the police shoot the dog point blank range.

i started to wonder after watching it…

“Police opened fire on dog after it reacted angrily when officers approached homeless owner who appeared to be having a seizure. Star, the pit bull shot in the head by police in the East Village Monday, is now in critical but stable condition, animal control officials said. Animal Care & Control was caring for the wounded pit bull, but an agency spokesman refused Tuesday to further describe Star’s condition. Star and its owner, a homeless man named Lech Stankiewicz, were outside a KFC at 14th St. and Second Ave. about 4:15 p.m Monday when police arrived for what appeared to be a medical situation involving Stankiewicz.” – AsianTown

    They shouldn’t have shot him, but maybe they did it for the man’s safety, I don’t know. I love animals, so it was a lil hurtful to watch them shoot the dog who was just trying to protect his owner. You give a policeman a gun and he’ll shot everything he sees as a threat. SMH

      ^on one side,
      they didn’t know that was the man’s dog.
      on another,
      dogs can sense when someone is scared or dangerous.
      as a homeless man who probably encounters ignorant police all the time,
      the dog sensed danger and wanted to protect him.

      video really bothered me as i am a huge lover of dogs.

    I canot believe US coops are not prepared to afford such problem, it is always easier to kill the one even if ‘he is in his own right ‘ to defend his owner ……..
    Very very sad ……….

    straight up i can’t blame the officers cause if that animal turned on them one of them could have been seriously hurt. I think people need to put them self into situations honestly and assess them properly cause most negros was killing that dog first bark.
