VIDEO: Cop Shoots & Kills Service Dog During Child’s Birthday Party

A 9-year-old Idaho boy did not expect to lose his family pet while he was celebrating his birthday at his family’s home — but that’s just what happened…..

Many people consider dogs to be part of the family, and citizens in Colorado are tired of police shooting those family members.

It has happened at least a half-dozen times in the past five years, and now lawmakers have had enough.

Two Colorado state senators plan to introduce a bill requiring police departments to adopt policies and procedures for dealing with dogs.

The bill was sparked by a series of dog shootings by police that caused public outrage.

Commerce City police killed a pit-bull mix named Chloe outside the dog’s home last November. Video showed police tase the dog then shoot it five times while it was on an animal-control noose.

Owner Gary Branson said, “It’s like losing a family member.”…

The exceptions include houses with drugs, so if there is a 70 year old cancer patient with marijuana; The cops can Shoot her dog?

These measures don’t go far enough to protect animal rights.

Its sad enough that these Cops dont care about Life.
