This is News?

Must have been a slow day:
  • An off-duty Chicago police officer shot and wounded a pit bull after it and another dog growled and advanced on him as he was getting out of his car Thursday night on the Near West Side, police said.

    The dogs' owner and his family said the dog that was shot about 8:20 p.m. and its sire were able to get out of the yard by pushing on the gate of the family yard in 700 block of South Claremont by the owner's grandson. The officer is a longtime neighbor of the owner's family.

    The officer told investigators he was getting out of his car when the two dogs came up and growled at him, said [...] a police spokesman. The officer retreated, but the growling continued and the dogs advanced on him...

Seriously? "Dog Bites Man" isn't a story, but "Cop Shoots Attacking Dog" is? We're sure the animal rights people are all up in arms over this - there are already about 100 comments at the Tribune sight, far more than we see when we end up shooting a two-legged dog with a pistol in his hand.

If you have a mean aggressive dog that gets out of your property and attacks people then whatever happens happens. End of story. Too many kids and other mauled by these animals.

Not news at all... And the owner of the two pit bulls should have made damn sure he had a secure fence to keep them both contained on his own property.

This is a BS 'story' overblown by the media to smear law enforcement.

I'm a huge dog lover.
When some retard on the job with a hysterical fear of dogs caps a golden retriever on an entry then proceeds to make up a bullshit story about how it was 'threatening', I really have nothing for that guy and won't be buying any tickets for him. But when it's a threatening pitbull that's gotten loose, sorry. Goodnight, pitbull.

Anyone read about the case out of Florida a few months back, where some white trash let their pitbulls get loose and they tore some poor old mans arms and face off, who then wound up dying a couple days later? Those fucking things are just dangerous.

There are certain rules of mother nature that you cannot 'nurture' away. Man kind has controlled the heredity of dogs for centuries and we've deliberately bred those miserable fucking things to be exactly what they are. If a pit bull gets lose and is snarling at me, I'm the last human being it ever snarls at.

All that said, I do love dogs- very much- and would put lumps on anyone who I witnessed mistreating them for their own sick pleasure (ie- ghetto shitbirds). I just don't have much love for those damn pit bulls.

Poor dog was just turning his life around. He was fixin to get his GED from obedience school. The dog was not growling he was just trying to show off his new grill that he got with his link card money. Po-po always trying to keep a good dog down.

The state controlled media knows that pit bulls are more popular then police officers and human life is cheap in urban areas.

Everyone from yuppies to drug dealers will agree with that.

Every attack on the police helps the state's agenda.

Remember, you are lower then whale shit in Rahm's corporate Chicago.

If a four legged dog needs to be shot by the police, the two legged thug that taught it to be vicious should also be shot. The loss of a four legged dog hurts me more than the two legged variety.

Funny. Wasn't there an article just recently that covered the usefulness of these cameras?

Didn't said article have a quote from an ASA stating that of all the cases that she has handled involving evidence shot from a blue light camera, not ONE have resulted in a conviction.

But have a copper involved and suddenly these cameras have the accuracy of a CIA spy satellite.

I can't believe the comments on Breaking News. It is so disheartening. I know people say stupid shit when hiding behind a keyboard, just read this site for proof of that, but the ignorance and disdain for the police makes me sick. The Us against Them attitude is growing, but I believe the public is leading it.

What was missing was the cap and gown, LOL!!!
I, for one equate the owning of any protection dog to our restrictive gun laws. Legally responsible owners take the time to have their dogs trained and properly cared for. Shitheads with their thug mentality will illegally use these dogs the same way they use illegal guns, for intimidation.
I rescued a female pitbull puppy from 015, had her trained by a professional trainer, and now she's one of the best dogs I've ever owned. Great with kids and other dogs. So impressed, I adopted and rescued a male puppy from Pittie Rescue. He too, will be sent for training.
People forget that in the early 1900's this was the American family farm dog, and was used in many of the World War posters.
Just be responsible the same way you train and secure your weapons.

OT: FYI for PO's living around Norridge
ODPO has a M/1 threaten him, PO identifies himself and POS threatens again.... PO places offender into custody, calls 911.
Norridge PD arrive, PO asks if they could transport to a CPD facility, they call for a sgt. Sgt arrives, talks to offender and then tells the PO if ODPO arrests him, he will also be arrested because now the offender said the ODPO 'assaulted' him. Norridge Sgt then releases offender before he could even get a CPD supervisor there.....
Nicely done Norridge....

Now they will get big buttons made of the dog picture and pin them on while they cry "No Justice, No Peace!" to the TV cameras and insist how the dogs were honor students at the obedience school...

This will safely fill up local TV news time that could be used in reporting how the "we have no money" State of Illinois is blowing $150 million dollars on a bronze/walnut/Italian marble remodeling of the state house in the middle of a depression, while it closes mental hospitals and cuts off bus fare and heating assistance for the elderly.

Police 100% in the right -- by law can "destroy dangerous animals."

Any decent citizen who is armed should be able to come to the rescue if necessary; I have a short newspaper story from around 1927 that describes how a rabid dog ran wild in the 55th/Cornell area of Hyde Park, viciously attacking and biting seven or eight people along Cornell before a brave resident came out with a gun and killed it.

Reminds me of an old Colt advertisement for the .45 Automatic that used the slogan "Once In Every Man's Lifetime..."

Yeah. End of story.

The worst part about this story is that the dogs family was interviewed and said that the dog was just starting to turn it's life around. It was going to go to college to be either a Doctor or a Lawyer. They showed a picture of the dog with it's cap & gown on.

They got hit because they hit the wrong apartment and when they got in there they shot the guy that lives there black lab. didnt find anything at all in the apartment and realized woops, we got the right apt on the warrant but the target lives one floor up. they then arrested a kid that lives there(who has no rap sheet) and did the ole, "as r/os entered the offender ordered the dog to kill em". well, that was the sgts call instead of playing it legit and just admitting it was a f'k up. instead a story was made up and they got hit because they falsly arrested the dude, knocked in the wrong door on the search warrant, tossed the entire apartment and killed his female black lab... oops! yes, the sgt got hit for 1,500 and the p.o. got hit for 1,000 punitive. the city got hit for 330,000. not to big of a hit for the officers but its still something. so no, if you kill a dog you will be fine and most likely will not get sued... if you do what these guys do then you may want to do it legit and just admit you were wrong... eh sarge?

Your an ass! get you facts right before you talk smack. The officer had a search warrant for both floors and contraband was found on both floors. The kid was arrested because he slammed his apt door on an officer after fleeing. Unless you were there STFU.

no, but have been around long enough to know when and how to write something lock solid so you dont get sued. These guys were sloppy and wrote a story that was rediculous. I come from the teachings of a certain person named "father pat"... Only a few will know who "father pat" is and what he was capable of. He could convince the devil he was jesus christ in his reports. learn to write properly and learn to take care of yourself... it will go along way.
