    I happen to know for a fact- those extremely gentle dogs (who were family members!) were not released on the Police! That is simply outrageous! What this article doesn’t say is that those “trained ” officers should have went to the front door like any normal person would. With no warning, all of a sudden, cops start jumping over the fence into the dogs back yard. Now what would you expect your dogs to do? Furthermore, only Mobey, a male pit barely a year old, went for the cop. When he pulled his gun and shot Mobey, Blue,(the other executed pit bull), ran away scared of the noise! So, the cop chased Blue down to shoot him. Please forgive me, but if your going to post short neighborhood stories, and air them, please get the facts straight! Thank you. Sincerely, Rhonda Butler.

    If you allow your dogs to interfere with the work police officers are doing then yes your dogs will be executed ,just as any armed suspect will be shot while threatening an officer . Idiots need to stop using dogs to protect your weed and stop thinking that if you have a dog in your yard you are above the law .
