I hope these LEO are punished. Actually, I can't even express on this forum what I would personally be willing to do to the officers who shot the dogs without running a risk of being banned. What total SOBs!!! I usually have a pretty balanced opinion of LEO but there is nothing to balance here.
These men shouldn't be cops. They shouldn't even be called men. They are bullies and cowards. These bullies shouldn't be members of any civilized community. These bullies should be stripped naked, tarred, feathered and then horse whipped in the town square and left to rot in the sun. Our ancestors knew better than us what to do with people like them. It is barbarisms such as this that creates scofflaws and outlaws. The next time an LEO wants to know why a law abiding citizen is rude, dismissive or downright hostile to them, point them to this article and to what is happening on their side of the thin blue line.
This is what happens when the citizenry is unarmed. I don't think they would have pulled this crap in rural VA, KY, WV, PA, MO, etc. because there they wouldn't have to worry that someone might
get a gun, they could be assured that somebody and perhaps several somebodies certainly had guns. Because they have a nearly disarmed population in MD, LEO abuses at will. The wolves will eat the sheep if the sheepdogs are defanged.
Breaking into innocent law abiding citizen's homes is and should be a dangerous occupation for LE. My give a sh** meter for future deaths of LEOs in such scenarios is dangerously close to breaking.
