can't read that stuff any longer
a post about a german shepard being put down. a police dog. there were 20 officers, on OT, of course, lining the walkway to the veterinarian's door.........saluting a dog. whatever; i ignored the inane post, until later, i saw my "friend" posted about how........god should bless this dog, that it is equal to a human service-person, and how they are used for life-saving purposes.
well.........sure, i guess your god blesses dogs; he sure doesn't give a fuck about humans; that's obvious.
it is a dog, not a service-member. a tool. it didn't volunteer for this duty from its love and concern for homo sapiens. it didn't stay up late as a puppy, dreaming of joining the police. it was impressed into service. shovels dig out earthquake victims...............shovels are not "heroes."
and.........these animals are being used for political control. i feel no safer around this animal, than i do around its handler. this cute little pup isn't getting sensitivity training, and anger-management courses. its getting "rip the arm off" training. the german shepard that represents the police best to me, is the one mauling a dying james boyd, after he has been fatally shot by new mexico police.
i don't want my fellow citizens shot dead by the police protecting a "brother officer", for kicking the police dog, which has been sic'd on them...........while peacefully and legally protesting.
