The training excuse again
September 14th, 2018 by Ken Hagler

Cops Kill Lots of Dogs. This Simulator Trains Them Not To. “We identified that this was a problem and created this training so we could keep officers safe, pets safe, agencies from paying out multi-million dollar lawsuits, and honestly, so we can keep the relationship between police and community a whole lot better, because it’s just rampant,” [National Sheriffs’ Association deputy executive director] Thompson continues. “Every day you hear of an officer shooting a dog. It’s not because they’re crazy, warmongering people who want to shoot a dog, it’s just they’ve never been trained or told different.” [Hit & Run]

The “we need more training” is a standard cop excuse for various vile acts. It’s particularly ridiculous when they use it for their dog-killing habits, because there are millions of ordinary Americans (myself included) who carry guns around strangers’ dogs every day and never have the slightest inclination to shoot any of them. We didn’t get any special training in not shooting dogs, all we do is not be a bunch of vicious psychopaths.
