    Radley Balko, MPD killed 434 dogs. It's Time to Train Officers Not to Kill Dogs.

    "Do we really need systematic training to combat a few isolated incidents, however unfortunate? The question rests on a false premise. Civil-liberties writer Radley Balko notes that over a nine-year period Milwaukee officers killed 434 dogs – about one every eight days. And that’s just one city. Across the country, according to Justice, “the majority of [police] shooting incidents involve animals, most frequently dogs.”

    Then get bit, if the dog is aggressive or protective. If they are killing dogs just because..... then I guess they need to be charged.
