Thank you for your time in advance. I am asking you to please make it mandatory in your state to educate and train our local police to handle our domestic animals in a non-lethal manner. The abuse and killing of thousands of loving family pets a year due to lack of education and training of our local police departments is going unpunished and ignored by our legal system. Our families once honored and respected police to serve and protect us but the abuse of power and brutal murder of our family pets is going unheard and children, the future adults, are the very ones who are being affected the most by the actions of police.

Our poor animals are inhumanely handled and killed every day by police and our children especially do not understand this brutal crime. Animals did not ask for this cruel ending for acting like animals and we the people are being betrayed by government paid employees, that we once trusted to serve and protect our families. If every state would come together and make this training a law, the honor and respect for our local police could be restored as we the people could again unite to support and honor our once heroes.

"Evil only prevails when good men do nothing." Please hear our voices and help us save our family pets and educate government workers so we as citizens of our states may stand united together to serve and protect each other and support the local police departments.

Thank you again for hearing our concerns. We are the voices of the voiceless, our children and our pets that we love as our family members.

I`'ve seen SWAT go into homes at 2am, and shoot the family pet immediately. It was determined they did nothing wrong however, with one minor exception. They had the wrong house!

The dog was doing exactly what he was supposed to do, and lost his life in doing so.

If SWAT were wise, they might want to reconsider their tactics, because there are some of us who consider our pets family. Your job is already dangerous enough. There are many ways to subdue a dog that are much safer than a firearm.

It should be a crime to kill a family pet.
Respect every life.
I thought my tax money was going to be applied towards law enforcement keeping thugs away from us, I see I'm paying for the opposite. Either give us a huge refund and body armor for us, our children and our pets, or do the decent job you're getting paid to do.
Try to show the public that law enforcement is not just a bunch of cold hearted killers.
All over the country, family dogs are being shot by police officers with inadequate training and apparently, little self-restraint or good judgment. This needs to be addressed on a training level. Education is the best defense against abuse.
