It's not just sleeping, its defecating, starting forest fires, setting buildings on fire, littering, stealing shopping carts, drug use, crime, untreated mental illness. All of these things are bad for society, especially the so called homeless, and must end. Liberals are not helping situation. FJB

Like the typical engineering school graduate hypocrite that you are, you sit there and complain about this yet you are an avid supporter of the universities, athletic programs and defend the over educated technical nerds that come from that engineering school there.

That would require a convention of states. Good luck with that.

Since this is a college town, start holding the alumni accountable for being the overeducated Computer programming, coffee shop nerds that they are. Find out which state government agency they work for and start filing complaints against Their professional licenses. Start boycotting athletic events

Does that include sitting on a bench and dozing off?

Nope, but it would be a help if rent would be affordable and people could actually get jobs instead of discrimination against them . And it would definitely help against crime and stuff.

Watched video. Little dog was no threat to anyone. After being outsmarted by deaf and blind in one eye dog the cop should have called for help instead of shooting it. This mistake makes the whole police department look bad in eyes of public. PD should buy a new dog for owner. Mayor apologize. FJB

The dog didn't show any signs of being aggressive or sick. The cop was obviously trigger happy.

This Cop should be fired. The poor animal wasn't a danger at all. I know a lot of cops that would agree with me.

Nope , I think the police department and mayor should be under investigations. How would he feel if his family dog was shot a stupid reason ? Oh I didn't know he was blind ? Really ok well what about a dog that's def gonna shoot it to cause it's acting weird? You need to be smarter then what you are

This officer, along with the Mayor, should be terminated. This poor dog was murdered. If he thought the dog was sick, he could have taken him for help. There was absolutely no excuse for shooting this tiny dog. The cop admits he wasn't afraid of being harmed. He got tired of chasing the poor thing,

I believe the video from the policeman's body camera is enough for a conviction.

Yeah, that's a bad shoot. No way it's okay. Fire him. Remember, the police only exist to serve and protect the law, not individual citizens. The supreme Court ruled police have no duty to protect non government officials.
