SLC cops could have used taser, pepper spray on dog
Monday , June 30, 2014 - 3:05 PM
Regarding the June 28 news story, “SLC officer who fatally shot dog getting death threats,” why did it take Chief Burbank five days to hold a news conference regarding this issue and to identify the officer involved?
I believe the actions of the Salt Lake police officer after he entered the private yard was totally wrong. He had the option of a taser or pepper spray. The dog was doing his job of protecting his territory.
What would happen a citizen with a concealed carry permit if he felt threatened by a police dog and shot the dog? I don’t think Chief Burbank would have such an “oh well” attitude in this instance.
