Ditto.

What a scary assh*le that cop is. Slashing a dog's throat with a knife in front of people? WTF??? The police in this country are out of control, and I for one am sick of stories like this

I suspect I wouldn't be in the right frame of mind at the time, but I likely would, yes.

that cop has some obvious anger / control / power issues and should be removed from the public contact IMMEDIATELY.....

and then charged with whatever kind of animal cruelty charges they can fling at him.... and THEN forced into some sort of psych treatment......

Some people feel very strongly about their pets. Why this upsets you is beyond me. We're talking hypotheticals, reacting to a very real story.

Not upset. Laughing about tough guys and their bravado on the internet.

I personally value human life over the lives of animals. It does not appear that you do.

I agree that people should not kill pets but that does not mean, IMHO, that humans should be murdered because they did that.

Sadly, dogs and cats are sometimes accidently hit by cars are you going to shoot and kill the driver of the car?

I am assuming that all of you posters who believe in murder, the death penalty or vigilante death squads for someone who hurts or kills an animal are all vegans. And you do not eat meat, or fish, or fowl. As some people have cows, calves, pot-bellied pigs, fish and birds for pets.

I assume that you also, do not wear leather shoes, or eat Jello, or eggs, or milk, or butter, or use certain types of photographs, or use certain types of shampoos because animals are harmed or killed to get make those products.

Yes, people who deliberately kill pets are scum but what should I be thinking about people who claim that they will hunt down and kill a human being, in cold blood, because they "harmed" their pet?

Lol, maybe relax a little.

And yes, I do value animals more than humans in some instances. Why? Because many humans suck. I take that back, I hate my landlord's dog with a fiery passion. I wouldn't cry if it died, although I wouldn't want it to be murdered. Maybe if it accidentally drowned or died in its sleep. But other than that dog yes, I value animals. And no, I don't value a human that killed my pet. Sorry if I, a total stranger may I remind you, upset you so much about a hypothetical situation.

The cop has obvious psychological issues that should have precluded him ever becoming a member of the force to begin with. Acts like that do not simply come out of nowhere.

If Baltimore PD is going to do the responsible thing, they will have someone review this man's entire history of contact with the public.

It's tragic about what happened to the dog, and I can understand the heated remarks from other posters. But honestly, what scares me more is that this man walked among the public with the full authority of the Baltimore PD behind him for who knows how long. And he was clearly unstable. Let's think about this for a second - Who on earth sees a restrained dog and then walks over and SLITS ITS THROAT?

This is a deeply disturbed individual, and he was a cop who likely had regular contact with members of the public who put their trust in him and expected his protection. I cannot imagine this is the first instance where he has stepped out of line.
