    These type of people should be publicly shamed.

    Are retired policemen allowed to keep weapons? If so who keeps records of the weapon and the bullets used?

    Poor dog has no voice and should punish this asshole to the maximum for animal cruelty and shame him publicly

    Recently, when I saw a picture in which a police officer feeding a starving stray dog, my eyes well up with tears of joy. When I learn that a retired police officer shot dead a pet dog, I shed tears of blood.
