Leave The Dog Alone, This Bite Was Justified

A criminal was running away from a police officer. Both of them jumped a fence into someone's yard, and the officer and suspect were attacked by the homeowner's pit bull. The police and animal control are now looking for the dog, possibly to kill the dog and charge the homeowners with a crime.

Isn't that insane? I've written on this before. If I'm reading this right... this dog and the owners did NOTHING WRONG. This dog deserves a medal for protecting his home. This kind of bite is JUSTIFIED BECAUSE IT WAS PROVOKED.

Now, no one can find the dog. Someone with some sense has hidden the dog from the authorities. It is pretty bad that people are put into these ethical dilemmas, having to defend an innocent dog from an unjust set of rules and laws. This stuff makes people not respect the law, law enforcement officers or animal control.

If you want people to cooperate with the police to clean up the crime in their neighborhoods, then those charged with doing the government's work need clean hands, too.
