Video Shows Cop Shoot & Kill Dog After Being Captured

UPDATE: This officer is now facing FELONY charges for shooting this dog.
After a neighbor called 911 to report an unknown aggressive dog on the loose, two police officers and an animal control agent showed up to help.
Unbeknownst to the man who called 911, his neighbor was dog sitting a relative's dog, and 9 News reports the dog must have gotten out of the sitter's house by tripping a sensor in the garage.
While aggressive dangerous animals should be neutralized if they're endangering people, this video captured by a neighbor frankly does not show a very aggressive dog, in fact the video shows the officers aggressing against the dog, who was backed into his own garage.
While closing in on the dog, one police officer apparently tasered it, then the animal control agent hooked it around it's neck with a noose, as the noosed dog makes a futile attempt to run away, the second officer guns it down, shooting it five times, despite it being obvious after the first shot the dog was noosed.
Police say the dog was dangerous but some neighbors say officers went too far.
When Kenny Collins called police about an unfamiliar dog loose in his neighborhood, he had no idea his neighbor was dog sitting for a relative. He had no idea it would end with the dog dead.
"I called police because I saw a dog wandering loose out front," Collins said.
Collins' neighbor was watching a large breed dog for her cousin who was out of town for the holidays. The woman, who did not want to comment at this time, said she left the 3-year-old dog named Chloe in the garage when she left to go shopping. She thought she closed the garage upon leaving, but it seems the dog tripped the sensor forcing the garage door open. That's when Chloe started roaming the neighborhood.
"He never came at me in an aggressive manner," Collins told 9NEWS on Sunday.
However, in his two 911 calls to police on Saturday, he described the dog as aggressive.
"We're the Collins family. We got a dog that's aggressive out here," Collins told the 911 dispatcher. "It's like a big pit bull mix something. He's outside of our house, barking out our windows and stuff. [He's] barking at our neighbors. He's a big one. If I tap on the window he keeps barking at us [and] being confrontational - and we're in the house."
Sunday Collins told 9NEWS he never feared the dog, but just wanted animal control to pick it up since it was loose. But, when two police officers arrived, things took a different turn. Collins' son shot video with a cell phone of the whole incident.
Watch their video report:
For god's sake people, don't call the police unless you want someone, or something, killed. Cops only understand two things, killing people, and extorting people. Unless you want to be extorted or have someone killed, including possibly yourself, stop calling the police. The whole task of "protecting and serving" has taken a backseat to protecting the government and serving their bank accounts through revenue generation. No doubt, if this dog could have been ticketed or fined and then thrown into a private prison costing taxpayers $40,000 a year, it would still be alive today.
