Seriously, you need to watch a video to make sure you don't shoot an innocent dog through a window? No different than not shooting an unarmed human ...it should be unsaid.
The problem is dogs are not humans and in most policeman's eyes they matter about as much as the hole in the window. In fact they were probably more worried about the cost for damaging the van then they ever were about killing the dog.....until everyone made a big enough stink they could not ignore....something they did not anticipate, I can tell you that.....
That being said something has to change..... Cops shooting dogs for as little as barking at them in their own yard has become an epidemic nation wide.... they need much more than a video.... they need classes with certified dog handlers who know more than just how to make a dog "sit" for a cookie..... They need someone versed in properly approaching a dog barking or not, so called mean or not, as well as teaching them to respect animals so they don't have to use deadly force when its rarely, if ever needed.
