We the people demand local police to serve and protect our family members rather than murder our family pets, due to their lack of knowledge and training in handling domestic animals.

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.

Its disturbing to watch as animals are called by cops and while they are wagging their tails cops are just shooting them on the spot. Theres got to be a more humane way of detaining an animal rather than killing them when they are cooperating with police.

Pets are property by the state and the 4th Right Amendment gives that protection the word "Effects" when a officer shoots a dog on their property they are taking away property from the owner. In our county our K9 Group requested to the sheriff to get officers trained in dog encounters. The first question would be what was the officer doing on the owners property in any case that is developed.

We have waited long enough for laws protecting our Family pets from Criminals ...thats includes law enforcement when they shoot them! Shoot them When they are chained, fenced in, only a puppy, or barely weighing 5 pounds. How can something that means so much to most of humanity not be better protected?? K9 officers are treated just as important as officers, yet the normal people & pets dont matter? Were so far behind making laws for our family members that it is sad. Remember Animal abuse leads to worse crimes...officers are not above this fact. They are human, and capable of same.
