    If the dog was in the house, it was doing what dogs are SUPPOSED to do -- protecting the house and it's family! I have a really hard time with anyone who would shoot a dog that is doing what dogs are supposed to do. Never mind all the other issues (missing the target, not being aware of what was behind said target, etc.). And then there is the issue of what on earth were they even doing going into the house when the woman who called, and the man who was called about, were both outside?!? If I was in that woman's situation, I would have done the same thing she did -- leave the child and the dog in the house, where they SHOULD have been safe, and get the threat outside where the police can deal with him when they get there. I don't understand why they even went in the house in the first place, let alone tried to kill the family dog!!

    Well, the Wichita PD officer can jump on that bandwagon too - since he missed (everything but the young girl).

    It wouldn't matter if you were a Wichita cop, apparently.......

    Dog looks like the neighbor's dog that is an Australian Shepherd mix. Head is to slender for a pit. Just my opinion though.

    I am glad to hear this. And that's the truth. The old timey cops were a different critter than these new ones coming in now.

    I've always said.

    There's a difference between being a GUARDIAN and being a WARRIOR.

    Today's police are ex-military and are taught to be warriors. This is the problem with today's police force.
    Gammas stand apart, staking out and defending their space, finding their own mate, showing no interest in dominating the Betas.

    Essentially, they avoid all but necessary, cautious interaction with Alphas and Betas.
