Cop: I Really Don't Care About Your Dog

Published:

Watch this video of a cop that stopped a couple who were speeding to the vet with a chocking dying dog

Some people really do love their dogs too much.  More than people.

Do you think these cops were being insensitive?

Yes to both.
He may have been too involved in the dog to be going 100mph - whether there is legal basis or not, I do think people should be able to exceed the limit in an emergency - perhaps not quite that fast. I don't think speeding is reserved only for cops to do and not get a ticket.

Yeah, the cop was insensitive. He could have moved his butt like he was alive instead of crawling through the motions. He could have offered to escort or take the dog to the vet. Personally, I think he was a jerk.   It was nice he didn't charge the guy with a felony. It would be nice to see what the Judge says when the guy shows up for his ticket.

The cop could have detained the driver and let the passenger drive to the vet.

The cop was being insensitive. Drunk drivers kill people all the time and they're not tryign to save a living being. These citizens were only trying to save a loved member of the family.

He could have escorted the people in the car or let the other person drive to the vet to save their pet.

I do agree that these people shouldn't have been violating the speed limit, but there was no reason for the cop's callousness.

A woman was speeding to get to the Lee Memorial Hospital after getting a call that her father had a heart attack. A cop stopped her and treated her the same way. She begged him to let her go or just follow her to the hospital so she could be with her Dad in case he died. Wish I could find that video.

I wonder what the cop would do if it was his dog on an off duty day. Would he say I'll just get another dog while his dog is vomiting and choking?

Some people need to be humbled into reality. When reality hits home, folks react differently.

The cop was a total A hole.

It was in Tampa.   "Now you're not going to get to see him because you're going to jail."
