    If true this guy will retire, with a lot of money and a new dog.

    And quite trying to claim nothing but victim. Many cops make the news for doing their job, mentioned on forums, and people care. Those are the good ones. These... were not.
    Killing a dog in the wrong house is definitely a screw up that needs repercussions. It is in no way acceptable.

    However, my point is that police rarely make the news for helping someone out or making a difference, or just plain doing their job correctly. So I have to laugh at the negative stories that get posted because in most cases, those are the only stories that make the news and get discussed in forums.

    99.99% of the population do their jobs well, helping others, and do not make the news. It seems though, especially lately, the police have been headliners a lot.

    Cook makes great dinner, cook doesn't make news, cook didn't even get a tip.

    I'm not arguing statistics in hiring, my head will explode. Just make sure you know your cops. In other words make sure your police are about upholding the constitution and not the orders of the administration or, you may find yourself firing upon them in the future. I post from time to time the good deeds that good cops do, when I can find them that is.

    They definitely get more attention than any other job, minus the president

    In Grand Rapids, MI, we have a civilian oversight board that investigates incidents such as these.

    And for what it's worth, if you're home when police hit the wrong house, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that homeowners have the right to defend their home against unlawful entry by police using lethal force.

    That was the exact opposite what the Indiana Supreme Court ruled. Thankfully, the General Assembly used statute to reverse the SC's error.
