if someone shows up on your property unanounced , gets out of the car and starts toward the door . your dog comes around the corner and is startled by a stranger in his yard . does not attack or even tries to bite , but he does bark and groul . does that give that person the right to shoot your dog ?

So many of us were not there, but from what I read of the story, this dog was simply doing it's job, it is a shame, but once again, I was not there???

Mark should go get a job with KPD thats where the spineless sissy dog killers are.We are not used to those kind of police officers in hawkins county.Any one that would shoot a family dog like that is as sorry as it gets,no excuses he should be fired.

If he felt threatened by the dog, why couldn't he have used pepper spray instead of shooting the dog. The dog was doing its job. He showed disrespect to the property owner by arriving there unannounced. He certainly should have called before going there. Why would he go there not knowing if anyone was home or not. Probably to snoop around would be my guess. He should be fired.

this is a trained officer . he is scared of a grouling dog . he did not say the dog tried to bite him , it only grould . the dog was in its yard . i've never seen a dog groul without showing it's teeth . this coward is out here running around with a gun . how long will it be before he shoots an inocent person in the dark because he got a little spooked . the animal activist , the owner of the dog , and his boss needs to come down on this man hard . incompitence , abuse of power , distuction of private property , wrongfully firing his weapon . matter of fact , i think i will contact the animal rights people myself and i ask that other people do the same . if you got time to post comments on here , please take the time to e-mail someone that can do something about this .

I agree!!!! That dog costed a lot of money a lot of hard work and dedication from a lot of people to get the county the dog just for them to let it die outside in a storm. And shooting a dog is just pathetic. I think the county has a lot of great officers sheriff and the city has few good officers and great chief but he does need to clean house on a couple of morons. You can't always just say they are good old boys and blame everyone else. Sometimes every bag of apples has a bad one.

The cop should pay restitution and be suspended, but knowing stupid Ronnie Lawson he'll probably give him a medal. Remember on election day the K-9 and the fact that the biggest drug bust they had in this county was a member of their own department.

I am a officer in Hawkins and yes we have pepper spray and it should be done or shoot in the dirt close to him and he would have ran. The fact is Mr Bass is gun happy and has a problem knowing it all? No other Sheriff would hire him cause they knew how he was.
Vote Lawson out

Maybe we should start a campaign to get Lawson voted out sheriff if he doesn't get rid of this moron.His behavior is unexcuseable and he should be fired.If lawson won't do itlets get rid of him.
