Police Officer Shoots Puppy After 'Fearing For His Safety'

Officer claims puppy would not stop “advancing” towards him
Mikael Thalen


A Michigan police officer shot and killed a 10-month-old puppy this week as he pursued a suspect through several yards in a Redford Township neighborhood.

According to the dog’s owner, Bianca Alakson, police ignored the “beware of dog” sign on her backyard fence early Sunday morning as they entered onto the property. After reaching her backyard, one officer claims to have been “charged” by the puppy.

“I didn’t know what had happened at first, I just heard ‘pop, pop’,” said Alakson’s boyfriend, Ryan Showalter.

Police claim the officer “feared for his safety” and had no choice but to shoot the puppy twice after it would not stop “advancing.”

“Everyone here loves animals, it’s the last thing we want to do but we have to protect ourselves,” a police spokesperson said.

Showalter refuted the officer’s claim that his puppy was dangerous, saying the dog had no history of violence whatsoever.

“He wasn’t the protector of the house type dog either, he was just the great everybody and love them to death type dog,” Showalter said.

Although police say the shooting was strictly based on officer safety, Showalter says the officer had a different explanation on scene.

“I asked him why and he said, ‘because he was in our way’,” Showalter explained.

Incredibly, officers then arrested Showalter, accusing him of interfering with police on his own property.

“They tried to tell me that I was resisting arrest,” Showalter said. “I was breaking down hysterically in the back seat of the cop car, crying, I didn’t know what to do.”

Showalter was later bailed out of jail by Alakson and is still awaiting charges from police.

Although instances of police helping dogs do appear, such as the recent case of a California officer rescuing a Chihuahua from a busy highway, they are greatly outnumbered by situations where officers use deadly force.

Earlier this month, A Pennsylvania state trooper wildly fired at a family’s dog only feet from a 5-year-old’s bedroom window. Although officer’s claimed the dog was charging as well, the dog’s owner argued that the bullet wounds, which were all in the dog’s side, proved that the dog was not running towards them.

An Oklahoma police officer shot and killed a family's dog last March and reportedly bragged to animal control how the event was “awesome.” According to reports, the offending officer has received numerous complaints from fellow cops as well as citizens.

Last February, an officer in Idaho was cleared of wrongdoing after killing a man's service dog outside a 9-year-old's birthday party. The incident, captured by the police vehicle’s dash cam, showed the officer kicking at the dog several times before he opened fire.

In 2012, a police officer in Austin, Texas shot and killed a dog as it played Frisbee with its owner. The officer would later learn that he had responded to the wrong home on a domestic disturbance call.

Also in 2012, a Texas cop fatally shot a dog as it sat on the porch outside its home, causing several bullets to go through the home’s walls. The officer proceeded by killing a second dog that was tied up in the backyard.

Even though some statistics point to American police killing a dog every 98 minutes, officers are not always successful. Just last month, a California sheriff's deputy shot himself while attempting to kill a fenced-in dog. Although the deputy claimed that the dog had tried to attack him, the dog was later seen playing with small children in the neighborhood.

7147 Okay, I mean, really: How much are we going to stretch these bad-cop-kills-pet sob stories?

I didn't even have to watch the video to get a feel for the size of that dog. I could see from the banner picture that the "10-month old 'teeny-weenie little' puppy" stood at least 30" tall at the shoulder and likely weighed over a hundred pounds--his head is the size of the woman's!

Later, in the video itself, you get a carefully down-staged view of a collar that is an inch wide and at least 15" in circumference. The picture of her holding him at the 1:47 mark shows he could have taken her hand end-on into his mouth, chomped down and...bye-bye, hand.

This is a dog that could have taken down a full grown deer!

Not only that, but the owners posted a warning about the dog, indicating he was dangerous: That's what "Beware of Dog" means!

A case could be made that the officers had no business entering the yard in the first place; I'm not arguing that.

But: Not dangerous? Just a teeny-weenie little puppy? No reason to be afraid of him? That's just syrupy-sickening media spin.

So every "big" dog you come across is dangerous ?
& media spin ? what about police dept. spin ?
The point has been made before that the postal service , who probably have more interactions with dogs DO NOT kill a pet every time a mailman delivers. Certainly they have to deal with agressive dogs but they find a way of dealing with it ( such as getting owners to "introduce" 'em to the pet) which means they get the job done. Police kill dogs BECAUSE THEY CAN ! They carry a lethal weapon which they are far too trigger-happy with. It's as simple as that , we all come across situations where we "fear for my life" but we don't all go around killing pets & PEOPLE .

193200 according to Chris who runs this website, this would be a legitimate killing.

he is all for wiping out sharks in australia, by all means possible, as they have no right to exist while they pose a threat to humans.. although... the threat of injury by shark in australia is 5% compared to the threat of injury from a toilet in america..

Chris is a fear mongering fuckwit.. who wouldnt know a real story if it jumped up and bit him on his arse

7147 @irishpete I don't know the actual circumstances of the shooting and am not speaking to whether the shooting was justifiable or not.

I am objecting to the positively syrupy spin to the effect that our puppy (which might have been 10 months old but could have stood on the ground while resting his paws on your shoulders, nose to nose and looking you in the eyes) and who is so loving and cute (that we have to post a sign warning people to look out) couldn't possibly be taken as a threat (even if he was charging with a slavering roar).

My adult sister, who was delivering newspapers to a couple, was mauled and permanently maimed by their two dogs; each less than half the size of this one. While the idiot wife looked on with her mouth hanging open. A so-called "harmless" dog may not be so harmless to strangers and fear is justified.

193200 @ irishpete

if you think posting comments under the psuedonym irishpete makes anything you say any more credible than other comments, thats just evidence of you being a moron.

fact is,. chris is on record as being an advocate for the slaughter of animals simply because morons they are just doing what nature intended them to do.,

the stupidity of that mindset, and yours, is not altered regardless of ones chosen psuedonym - go back to eating shit fuckwit

A rabid dog should be able to be shot in self-defense ( for example, one like this which attacked a child before a heroic cat came to his defense: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6FvHif8l0w ) ; this case is not that, nor the other one you commented on. In this case the cop invaded the residents' property then murdered their dog, that's not self-defense, and it's not justified in anyway.

10842 @193200, Chris doesn't "run" this website, more so, this site runs Chris. you can insult him all you want, for his job is to keep you from seeing the "REAL" messages in these articles. he's was Marine, if i remember correctly... which translates to a "dog," if this were "Animal Farm."

sharks and dogs, dogs and sharks.... in the Ethernet realm, sharks are hackers, hence the program for identifying so-called attackers is "Wireshark." Dogs are cyber police, or, network nodes. their job is to redirect and/or delete the truth, if it happens to present.

from the nature of your posts, i believe i haven't written anything that you aren't already aware of. take it easy on the commentary - calling them fuckwits doesn't help them shake off the programming, and, i'm pretty sure irishpete doesn't work for the 99 team.
Regards, L.S.

I advocate the targeted culling of dangerous predators which are literally eating people alive. I guess that doesn't have the same ring as the "indiscriminate slaughter" of sharks "because they're sharks."

"A so-called "harmless" dog may not be so

I totally agree with your statement here , it's the response to the fear that gets me , we all have feelings of fear at some time but must deal with it without resorting to killing. I suppose we all have a different take on these stories & the way in which they are reported.
I also appreciate reading your take on it & your (& others) ability to express it without resorting to name-calling & profanities. Whilst I too , often disagree with others opinions , I like to think there is room here for all , providing we can respect each other & this space.

10842 Perhaps, I'm thinking of a different "Chris".....

I recall a post which read, "Chris," writes for this site, without the expectation of being compensated. Is that accurate?

@non 193200, let me save you some time. This site is a Rockefeller construct. Chris writes for this construct. The aim is to instill fear - that's what media does.

Redirect to your quote up there^
"Chris is a fear mongering fuckwit"... Hence, he writes for the media.
.."who wouldn't know a real story".... Your folly is in this line. "Real," is "Truth." A "Story," is was the media writes. Though, there is truth in these "stories," you just have to read them in 2 directions to find that truth.

The "truth" in the story... it read to me as a reminder to the "higher-ups" on the hierarchy. Police depend upon dogs for protection, so, when they run about killing them, it's Bad for Business.

As for sharks @non 193200, sharks are indiscriminate predators. They don't recognize a hierarchy; man, dogs, cops, doesn't matter to them. If you put sharks into the context of my last post, you'll better understand why a government would advocate the killing of them.Though I may not stand on the same side as Chris, he does have a talent that I respect.

fuck you and your pretentious prattle - i dont need you or anyone else to explain your understanding of anything to me. "youll better understand why a government would advocate the killing of them." go fuck yourself! - who declared you the arbiter of all understanding you shit eating lumpen!

who cares who or what you respect. your unqualified opinion is worthless. i wasnt expressing an opinion, i was stating a demonstrable fact, chris, who runs this website, is a fucking hypocrite, pretends to care about one little dog, while advocating the sensless destruction of a whole species..

heres 50 cents, go rent a clue
