Concerning this topic posted here the last few days I have some un answered questions.
Point 1 - Officer had prior knowledge the dog was there at the back of the residence.
What was his reason for going to the rear of the home after receiving no response from the front? To try to make an entry or to engage the dog? Was there any family vehicles parked at the residence that would indicate someone was home at the time? Why didnt he notify his dispatch to make a phone call into the residence to see if anyone was in fact home? Why didnt he notify his Supervisor and or Animal Control before going to the back of the home, as he had prior knowledge the dog Max was back there? I cant see any justifiable reason for him going to the rear of the residence with all that has been presented on here other than to engage the dog and kill it. This was never a "no knock" warrant simply a Family Court non support issue. As this guy has a History of shooting and killing animals this should be throughly investigated, too many loose ends here for me to buy it.

Seriously are you related to this police officer that shot Max? Just curious... also do you think its alright to go to someones home with a warrant and it therefore gives you the right to act as you own the place? If this is the way you feel perhaps we all would be better off if you also would hand in your badge. Please remember your job is to Protect and Serve, these people like the rest in your county are paying your wages, wherever it is you live.
I have heard mention that pets/Max is considered property. Well what gives a PO the right to come on a persons premises and destroy property?

Seriously................you are the kind of "cop" that gives the rest of us a bad name. Also, if you think that everyone here is a "moron" then that explains why you are here!!!! I don't recall anyone forcing you to come to this site. Why don't you go watch CSI? Maybe you might learn something. A tied up animal was murdered! All he had to do was contact Animal Control, not kill the animal.
You need to get a life, the rest of us have one.

Seriously, I'm not trying to pick on you... But geez come on, I have said it several times, You need to show some class here, Is this actually how LEO present themselves ???? I mean by the way you write, it makes me think you would do this too !!! Do you realize the poor representation you are sending to the rest of the board here ??
Seriously in my opinion you are NOT representing LEO well at all here with your tantrums, because you are LEO you are held to a higher standard, You do understand that right ?? Yes I understand your commitment to sticking up for this deputy in MD, However I do not and will NOT condone the manner in which you choose to defend him.
YOU need to STOP AND THINK, YOU = Higher Standard
Re-evaluate your position, State it clearly, correctly and with some professionalism as is expected of you !! SHOW SOME CLass !!!!!

Vom Brunhaus is correct. The big issue here is that this bumbling deputy chose to go near this dog for no reason. Knowing it probbaly wasnt the subjecvts residence, he had a duty to not engage that dog, putting himself in a situation where he could possibly shoot it.
* This is the difference between a good police officer, and a mediocre one. The ability to think!

Ohhh, I've held this in for a few threads, but I cant take it anymore.
Am I the only one that thinks this tragic story is a perfect example of why you should never, never use tie-outs, especially unsupervised? I absolutely hate them for so many reasons, they have so much potential to be physically, mentally and emotionally harmful to your dog. Would this have happened if he was on a leash with his owner or secured in a dog run? I'm not saying its the owners' fault, please dont take it the wrong way...that was just the first thing I thought when I read the story.
