We have yet another case of a police shooting of a family dog. This case involved a particularly tragic
occurrence on Christmas Day. Kobi, a 70-pound Rhodesian Ridgeback mix was shot dead by a Chicago police officer. Chicago has previously appeared on these pages for dog shootings. The family says that the police opened the gate to the backyard where Kobi was being kept and then shot him when he came out. They were looking for a suspect. The police department insists that the officers acted appropriately.
Chanette Weaver said that she had just put Kobi in her closed, fenced-in yard at about 6:50 a.m. on Christmas Eve. She said, five minutes later, an officer came to the door and told her “Ma’am, your dog is dead.” She called the officers “heartless” and said that they told her “Ma’am, your dog was getting ready to attack one of my officers.’ And they shot him three times.” Police say that they shot the dog when it came to the sidewalk in a threatening manner. Weaver however said that the dog had been through obedience training and would not have attacked.
Police were looking for an escaped prisoner.
The family still have Kobi’s wrapped gifts under the tree. They now have a lawyer. The city previously paid hundreds of thousands in a recent dog shooting case.

Two major concepts have to be taught police departments and municipalities. The first is that a taser is a deadly weapon. The second is that dog is man’s best friend and woman’s only friend. So cop supervisors: teach the troops that the taser is just as deadly as a colt 45. Second, dont hire anyone who is afraid of dogs or hates dogs. Take all prospects to the dog pound and see if the dogs growl at them.
It is a lot more than growling. Don’t ever take a dog to the pond or shelter. They will alter them. That is evil. A person can cure a dog of growling without killing.
“The family says that the police opened the gate to the backyard where Kobi …”
Cheryl above, can you are mistaken, the family clearly stated that the police opened the gate! Your sentiments are excellent however!
Well – – – Since the PD insists the officer acted appropriately, there is a systemic problem, clearly not limited to one unfortunate isolated incident. If this were a drunk driving incident, the individual would have been arrested, charged and if found guilty, the person would have been fined and/or imprisoned, forced to surrender his driving priviledge for a time and been ordered to attend special classes on behavioral modification & substance abuse. All, or most all, of that would have happened even if no one was hurt or killed. Most pet owners regard their animals as important members of the family rather than just animals. If the investigation indicates that the officer was not legally justified to kill Kobi, then in addition to all else, he should suffer serious personal and professional consequeces.
Doesn’t it make sense that if the suspect was there he’d been corned by the dog?
Had the policeman obeyed the KJV 1 Thessalonians 4:11 > And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you.
King James Version. Philippians 2 >. 3Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Police disobeyed both of them. Had Cesar Millan responded like a police man he would not have had any clients because all of them would have bee shoot.
1. Why was the gate unlocked? In Chicago with it’s crime and stupid cops, why would they have a fenced in yard with an unlocked gate?
2. Don’t cops in Chicago and environs have dogs and kids? How would they feel if they had to tell their kids that daddy’s partners killed their dog?
3. Chicago needs to send it’s police force back to the academy for remedial training. Between the arrests of photographers and the murder of pets – they apparently have not done a good job of teaching them that they are there to protect and serve not bully and kill.
Police to protect us has been, and will always be a joke.
What Pete and Darren said. I must be out of tune with somebody around here, because my Deity does not have the temperament and ego problems of a petulant and spoiled twelve year old who pulls the wings off flies.
A kind heart. .it is a wonderful thing to see. You see God as he is being all good things^^
John Hammer I must tell you that Santa claws represents a being that gives the things of the world. Jesus does not give the things of the world being apposed to the character of Santa Claws. That guy has nothing to teach to save the soul any more than pastors or priests in man made idols. You have no idea how wide the gulf is between the two names. A body that dies turning Gods gifts into shit,and piss will have the equivalent in words coming out of their mouth when the name of God or Jesus is mentioned. I don’t celebrate that man made holiday.
it went from zero to bat$hit quick on this thread
pete HGafd : Jesus being in people would not have done what that policeman did. What that policeman did is bat shit crazy to his soul. Whoever thinks a gun is power is bat shit crazy.

Jesus would have annihilated us instead of saving us saying, I AM PERFECT. PEOPLE THAT DIE KILLING WHAT I MADE ARE NOT PERFECT! I WILL SHINE MY GLORY AND BURN ALL OF THEM UP
NOMAD: My function is to probe for biological infestations, to destroy that which is not perfect. I am Nomad…I am perfect.
yet even NOMAD offers a very succinct retort to your position…
Darren Smith If you say you have no sin there is no truth in you. Your solid body that is dark inside kills life. That is sin in the body. Without the spirit of Jesus in the soul the soul in the body will be dead. From that combination noting good will come out of it. What comes out will not be what comes out of Jesus. What I said is what Jesus would have done with your view of God. It has to be obvious Jesus did not do what I wrote. Jesus in spirit needs to be in you to be like a humble child.
O can well up fake tears and mug for cameras if there’s a dead child or LEO
with an emotional story — but like most other psuedo liberals, when it comes to appointing people who might, repeat MIGHT have a liberal bone in their body and oppose police killing people and pets – O is AWOL.
NPRers: you must be very happy with your choice for president last month.
Injustice breeds contempt, which distinguisheth naught.
Jonathan, hate to tell you, there is no Santa Claus…you got that bag of coal, FROM YOUR FATHER!!!

You are right . I erupted. Police think like the devil because they are taught by a methodology that thinlks like the devil. They give guilt. That is because the devil is guilty because he rebelled from God. He has been blaming God through people ever since. Had God be bad all of us would not be here. Jesus would have never did what he did. Jesus is God.Had God be your satanic accusation Jesus would have annihilated us instead of saving us saying, I AM PERFECT. PEOPLE THAT DIE KILLING WHAT I MADE ARE NOT PERFECT! I WILL SHINE MY GLORY AND BURN ALL OF THEM UP BODY AND SOUL. He could have done that you know or Jesus would have killed us slowly being known as the best stone thrower that ever was. That is what Jesus would have been with the image you give with how you see God. People go away from God choosing the devil as their master. That i what you see. Satan is the accuser. Think about that.
I think it is instructive that mail men and women, UPS and FED EX delivery men and women never have to shoot dogs.
Ordinary civilians almost never have to resort to physical violence to protect them selves from dogs.
Animal control officers almost never kill or even tranquilize animals.
Yet LE often kill dogs and then claim that it was necessary.
I would argue that LE has been improperly trained.
It is time for citizens to tell elected officials and LE management that the common experience of many other citizens refute the claims that LEO’s have acted reasonably.
It is time to inform LE that their actions are unnecessary to protect officers, endanger the community and violate reasonable standards.
Communities need to hold individual LEO and departments accountable.
All of them are taught that a gun is power. You can’t deny that. Jesus would not consider a gun as power. Religious people kill.That makes police, and anyone who kills calling it good religious. Every time a police man kills to them it is justified. Have a person kill a police man. The person killing to them is bad.
Keep in mind that JH has in the past said that 1) he’s a special messenger chosen by God and 2) that he’s pro-bestiality. Also consider 3) that he’s prone to what can only be described as wild confabulations and religious pronouncements on a fairly constant and consistent basis.
Don’t expect reason to work with him.
Zoosexuality is what I call it. God is not a warmonger like you lust in your mind for Jesus to be looking like decked out like Christmas tree looking like the highly honored general. The devil is in war. That means the devil is against what I call the zoo. Hate against who I defend has no reason .if it did Satan is justified to kill the body of all living things to rule permanently, but he will not. .He has an end. Why take the side of a loser?
Have police not valuing their soul panicking about their body thinking a gun is power will guarantee door rushing killing police acting like the people outside Lots house
I said a prayer for the dog. Then after reading the comments I said one for the shooter. He ought to leave town while the getting is good.
The dog has a saved soul. Dubious about the trigger happy human.
Jonathan Hughes: You took the words right out of my mouth.
Our minds are one.
Jonathan Hughes erupted:
Police need to be killed by Gods glory even as the sodomites were killed by Gods glory like it will be in his second coming world wide. The police are evil evil evil personified.
A police officer probably wrongly shoot a dog, and every LEO in the world must die according to the glorious god that is yours Jonathan H. I think you are suffering from a case of mistaken identity, it sounds more like you worship Satan than God; because arbitrary murder sounds more like the devil that the loving God most people identify with.
I might suggest that you retreat to the glass house you certainly live in and spare normal people from reading your incitements to violence.
