Why are all these police officers such cowards!?! Dogs bark at strangers. It's what they do. I've been barked at. I've had dogs "charge" in an "aggressive manner" but I didn't fear for my safety and I didn't get bit and I didn't f*cking shoot the dog! Have none of these people ever been around a dog. How can they not understand basic dog behavior and body language??? They are trigger happy cowards that are not fit to carry a badge.

The last I heard for Austin Police Dept in Texas, they had some of their officers take a voluntary dog body language seminar. It's a shame it's not mandatory...

I wish I didn't go into this thread again - now I feel sick. :( (Yes, my own fault).
