Some dogs are mean. They are not born mean, they are trained (or mistreated) and end up mean. Some people are mean. People are not born mean either – they just grow up learning hatred and are very angry people. The officers in this video are mean. Period. They repeatedly taser a dog who is clearly terrified.

The dog had escaped from her new home, and the owner called the police for help. The dog wasn’t a danger. He was running away from the police. The police used excessive force by tasering the dog five times. Why wasn’t animal control called? Animal control officers are trained to handle animals.

I hope the investigation reveals that the cops were out of line and they should be punished. That poor dog will probably have behavioral problems as a result. Physically, the dog is reportedly fine.
