Well I've never had to shoot a dog, fortunately. I would if I honestly felt I needed to, but thus far I've never felt it was necessary.
I watched the video, and I'm not crazy about it. The dog was on a catch pole. I've used those before...they give you quite a bit of control if you have the strength to hold them. The clip is short, but it looks like the AC officer maybe was losing control of the dog, which led to it being shot. So all in all, I'd say the shoot is probably justified...but barely.
I think shooting a dog on a catch pole is similar to using hard empty hand or a higher level use of force a handcuffed suspect. You better be able to articulate it very well.No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for ones friends - John 15:13

Total none story it's just a dog buy a new one and keep it safe in your yard or garden.
I have never seen the point of keeping pet dogs especially when they go on to kill children, I'd ban all but working dogs thats probably quite an extreme view but I believe based on sound logic and much more sensible that some of the anti-gun and enviromental arguments which are accepted by the public and politicians."all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" Edmund Burke.

Back in the 60 when I was running AWOL apprehension in Georgia, my partner and I were in Milledgeville (sic) picking up some deserters. We were talking to the chief when you could shear a bunch of shooting in the distance. The Chief yelled to his secretary "who the hell is doing all the shooting." The secretary yelled back, "the
SGT and his buddy are shooting dogs on the south side of town." The Chief says to us, "Alls in a days work, down here."

The last thing I want to do is hurt you but it's still there on my list of options, so are you coming quietly.........?

This whole thing sounds like a set up. Complainant tells police the dog is being aggressive. Records the incident. Then tells the media he never said that. I'm wondering if the dog was too much for the owner to handle and they planned this thing out.
Regardless, police should use the 911 recording and the media tape as evidence and charge him with false statements."If everyone is thinking alike, then someone isn't thinking." -Gen. George S. Patton

The caller is a complete liar and should be charged. The last time I checked dogs bark. It's what they do.
I have shot one dog. A pit bull that was running loose in my neighborhood. I tried to avoid it but when it turned to attack me I put 2 rounds in it. Was down but still alive when animal control finally showed up. Fought the officer as he was trying to put it in a transport cage. I put one round in the chest and one round in the head. I felt extremely bad when I realized the rounds didn't kill the animal. Unless the officer was indeed losing control of the dog I couldn't shoot it on a catch pole.
Some people can easily shoot dogs and cats and the like. I'm not one of those people. Shooting is only when I believe the animal is going to attack or has attacked and I can see or show that. I don't have to like it but I'll do it.Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

"I put one round in the chest"
you did not have your step ladder, did you?
"A strong man stands up for himself. A stronger man stands up for others."
The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
brought my rifle."
(just stole this one hope you don't mind)
The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
it is just that they know so much that isn't so.
