    how shocking is this vid?!!!



    from watching the video it seems like the other officers didnt really do much to start with, i mean i know getting involved doesnt always benefit the situation, but if i was there i would have tried to help immediately, i mean does it not pain you (make you feel guilty) to just watch something like that going on and not try and help? i dont know i mean i guess maybe if i was actually there i wouldnt feel the same about getting involved
    also apparently the dog owner "Pierre Robinson, 25, will appear in court today accused of 'allowing the dog to be dangerously out of control' "

    No idea what was going on elsewhere so it could have been more dangerous to allow more officers to focus on the dog than what else was going on? Not much you can do with an attack like that, if it wasnt going to stop already than having someone trying to pull him off may have made the dog more violent.

    Either way i feel sorry for the dog. All it was doing was what it was either trained to do or not trained not to do. Was defending its homeowner from people who are nothing but intruders to him. All the blame should go to the owner for having a dog such as this and being unable to control it properly.

    To me the dog does not seem to have been moving fast, so why did no officer take his weapon, calmly approach it and - from a close distant - blow away its head?

    Same question as Sir Fox - don't all the officers have a gun? It seemed to have latched on to one of the officers arms for quite a while - another officer could/should easily have been able to walk up to it and shoot it at close range shouldn't they?

    That's what I thought. Maybe they were scared they might miss.
    I thought this was going to be about the rapper.

    if the owner can't control it's dog, then that's their problem. I would have done the same thing and shot the dog had it seriously hurt one of my colleagues.

    This is the United Kingdom. We do not allow firearms on the street except with people who can actually use them. We aren't savages you know.

    Bit pathetic that none of the other cops came to help with one of them even appearing to hide on a wall?

    Kinda sad that the dog died :/ (not saying it didn't need to be killed given the situation just that the whole situation could have been avoided).

    I was talking about "other officers", i.e. the po-lice-men running around in the video, and they'd better carry firearms and know how to use them Also, I am not from the US and like to sit in uni lectures with a Colt dangling at my belt, if that's what you implied by writing "This is the United Kingdom"

    The other officers probably wouldn't have been carrying firearms. Even in London it is not usual for our police to carry guns though we do have firearms units that patrol e.g. CO19 and DPG. It's likely one of these specialist firearms units would have been called to shoot the dog.

    Firstly, I'm pretty appalled at how the other officers didn't even attempt to go to their colleagues assistance. They ran away like cowards. That for me is unforgivable. IN that situation, yea, I'd be crap scared, I have a phobia of dogs, but when you see someone in a situation like that, especially one of your colleagues, its clear that they had the power to help him but they didn't.

    I'm also disgusted at the guy in the grey tops reaction, I'm assuming he is the owner. If I had the power, I'd lock him away for 10 years. He didn't do anything to help the officer. NOTHING. If that was a small child, that dog could have killed. He just gave a few half hearted slaps to the dog and nothing more. He was probably the only person involved who could have saved the officers involved.

    And to that guy screaming thats cruel towards the end. Seriously, WTF. 4-5 people nearly died and he's thinking about animal cruelty. If that was his daughter, mother, father or son involved he'd want that dog hang drawn and quartered and the owner subjected to capital punishment.

    This is why the UK should seriously tighten up legislation in regards to dogs. In 99% of cases, dogs are extremely friendly and helpful creatures. However, when they fall into the wrong hands they can be deadly weapons, and that is why they shouldn't be allowed to fall into the hands of wrong people.


    Absoloutley disgusted

    Some guy at the end said "that's cruel" as far as I can tell...The second the dog bit the first person (police officer or not) there is grounds to have it destroyed. Admittedly shooting it is unorthodox, but given the strength of these dogs I would not give it a second chance, once contained it needed to be dealt with asap.

    I've had to deal with potentially dangerous dog before, and once you commit yourself to causing harm you HAVE to be prepared to go through with whatever necessary to protect yourself. In my case I was defending my own dog, in the past the other dog has attacked mine, resulting in a nasty cut about an inch long on his right flank (and some expensive vets bills for antibiotics!). I was fully prepared to do what was necessary to stop it harming my dog again. In the end I only managed to give it a glancing blow as it ran back to its incompetent owner after going for my dog's throat.

    Dogs are animals, they will not show mercy when provoked.

    There are far too many hippies about that think animals can get away with viscous attacks and humans have no business protecting themselves/defending themselves.

    If we manned up and armed all our police officers they could have shot the dog straight away and not suffered such an attack but no that would be barbaric :rolleyes:

    Fwiw I like dogs, generally, but if an animal is attacking a human like that it needs dealing with.

    I agree...though not entirely sure if all police officers need to be armed, though perhaps some patrols in high risk areas. I love dogs too, however if they are not trained properly then they can be dangerous. A similar thing applies to people too, I guess!

    Pff, 4-5 people did not "nearly die". They may have received relatively serious injuries but none of them came close to death.

    Which is why people feel sorry for the animal. It's the owners of these dogs that are the problem not the dogs themselves. I'm not saying the dog shouldn't have been destroyed in this situation as once a dog gets to this point there's not really much else you can do, can't teach an old dog new tricks as it were. With that said I still think it could have been avoided had they actually done their investigation properly and took the appropriate precautions before they entered.

    ...I'd say it's pretty cruel that one of them is up for skin grafts and the others are going to have lifelong scarring.
