This tail-wagging family pet was apparently seven months old and his name was Maximus. The police department has admitted that the video clip is legit.

This POS cop called a seemingly playful dog over to him and guns it down. The “Law enforcement officer” is from Cleburne PD. Please feel free to post their info in the comments, I will update when I have more info!
Update 1: In the report the officer claims that the dog was aggressive and coming at him
Update 2: several sources are saying that the perp is Officer Kevin Lynn Dupre, Cleburne TX PD.
Update 3: Petition against cop http://www.thepetitionsite.com/472/96…
If you scratch a police department like this, you will likely find an asshat underneath, who is trying to spin the video some other way, and come up with an excuse. Here is Cleburne PD trying to come up with an excuse, on their Facebook page:
The City is obviously concerned about the video showing an officer shooting a dog. As is often the case, the short video does not tell the whole story. The officer was responding to a 911 call for assistance. Three dogs had pinned some residents in a vehicle. One dog was secured without incident before the shooting. The officer was attempting to secure the other dogs until animal control arrived when one dog became aggressive.The City of Cleburne takes the safety of our residents, their pets, and our officers seriously. This incident is currently under review. The review will include interviews with witnesses and review of department policies. Once the review is concluded, any actions that may be warranted will be handled swiftly and appropriately.The Cleburne Police Department is seeking the public’s help if anyone observed this incident, please contact the Professional Standards Unit at 817.556.8894.

First off I am a Police officer, a State Constable in Pennsylvania….This video if true is VERY appalling. I happen to also be a dog lover…3 dogs…2 pits and a rat terrier who are the nicest dogs, especially around children. I deal with dogs numerous times daily and unless I am physically being attacked there are other ways to handle them. In this case it appears that isn’t so..the dog is called over to be executed. If this turns out to be true he needs to be fired and criminally charged. I may take some flak from fellow law enforcement officers here but I want to make myself clear that if this is true and this dog executed for no reason I want something done to this officer!
