They were discussing this on our local radio this morning. After a long vehicular chase, pick (sp?) maneuver, and crash, the guy took off on foot and a police dog was sent after him. The dog took him down, he started stabbing the dog (seriously wounding him) and the officer shot and killed the man.
I found it amazing that some (a minority) of callers thought the man should have been spared because "it was just a dog."
Now, I'm thinking that, if I were armed and a man was stabbing my dog... I'd probably shoot the guy. And my dog just picks up birds, she doesn't protect the public.
I was very vocal about the killing of the weimer by the police in SLC. I felt it would be appropriate for me to support the police in this manner.
