Poor dog. The trooper who wants his job back had someone testify that he loves the dog so much that he had someone sing a lullaby. How dumb is that? That would be like some wife beater having a friend testify that he had displayed loving behavior to his wife in the past.....or a child abuser who had bought gifts for his kids for Christmas. Many abusers show love for their victims and most victims love their abusers. I was a CPS investigator so I can attest to that but that doesn't mean the abuse didn't happen or won't happen again. I hope this analogy is brought up in court.
He is not fit to be a cop, a father or an owner of a pet. He is unstable and has anger management problems. His problems most likely run deeper.
