    Yet this is the 3rd dog that he has killed in the past 7 years?

    How old is he? I went to school with a C Long, and it's bugging the crap out of me.

    Family Dog Killed by Charles County Deputy


    On Tuesday, May 15, 2007 at approximately 2:30 PM, our beloved “Max” a 6-year-old black German Sheppard, was gunned down on our doorstep by Charles County Deputy C Long. Allegedly Deputy Long arrived at our home to serve a warrant on an individual who did not even live with us. He parked on the side of our house, went to our front door and 2 side doors, when no one answered he proceeded around our garage to the side door of the garage. He stated he acknowledged our dog Max when he walked by him. Max, who was on his leash, allegedly snapped at the officer and then the officer allegedly shot Max multiple times in the head, jaw and neck, breaking his choker collar and leaving him to die 2 feet from our door. The officer allegedly went back to his car and called for back up which during that time our son arrived, not seeing anything but Max lying in a pool of blood, picked him up, put him in his truck and raced to the vet in Prince Frederick, but Max died along the way. When my husband and I arrived home shortly after, we found the Benedict Ambulance, 2 unmarked police cars, the animal control van, and 2 Deputy Sheriff cars in our yard, and we still were not sure what had happened. Officer Long was in the ambulance and we were not allowed to speak with him. We were then told they had to take Max with them to do a Rabies test, even though we presented documentation that proved all his shots were up to date, including Rabies. A horrible situation got even worse when they told us we would get our dog back without his head, as that is how they test for rabies! We were told “off the record” that the officer barely needed a band aide, that his pants weren’t even torn. The sadness, pain and distress this situation has caused is indescribable. He was a member of our family and undeniably my husband’s best friend, he spent hours with Max each day, they did everything together. Was his murder justified – NO!

    I am very sorry for the loss of your dog. Could you please inform the police as to the whereabouts of your son? Thank you and God Bless.

    Tell me, what dog have you ever seen that would not succumb to one bullet, let alone 7? That's ridiculous and downright crazy.

    I still say there is hogwash going on here. That dog was NOT loose or he would have ran around the front before the cop got out of his car. If the dog broke the leash, there would be proof of that.

    Many agencies have to inventory all their ammo. Do they do that in Charles County? If so, is there in fact seven bullets missing from that officer's weapon?
    If this is the case, he should be questioned as to why he shot 7 times at the dog. Is he that poor of a shot that he can't hit a dog a point blank range? If the officer is in control of his weapon, there is no way in H$LL that he couldn't shoot the dog. Come on, this story reaks man! Why is it on record that this guy has shot two other dogs? This was in the report on Channel 7.

    I say that the guy gets a super high class lawyer to have this thing investigated. I would like to know why he's shot two other dogs.
    The son listed this address with the Circuit Court of Charles County. I would suggest you check your facts! And what movie of the week are you watching? This isn't hollywood where an aggressive predator stops with one shot. If a 125 pound dog is moving to you and begins to bite you, one shot is not going to stop it's central nervous system down shutting the dogs reaction down instantly! Wheew....you need a reality check!

    What the heck does knowing his family have anything to do with this guy shooting a dog? I say that a lawyer needs to subpeona the medical records due to the helacious bite that this "rabid and ferocious" dog inflicted.

    I want to know why this guy has shot THREE dogs. I'm telling you, that is plain and downright nasty.
    But your ready to judge him in a few sentences of a thread? Hmmm. Perhaps you should listen to yourself!

    And what movie of the week are YOU watching, CUJO?

    It was a family pet and he didn't follow protocol.
    He should of contacted the dog catcher.
    Or maybe your watching CSI. He was issuing a "child support" warrany not a warrant for murder or armed robbery.

    I don't know what protocol your talking about? If a police officer is being attacked by an animal, he has a right to defend himself! The type of warrant is irrelevant! He was there doing the job we pay him to do! Now if it is found the officer did something wrong in the course of his duties then I am all for punishing him! However, lets not take the right of a police officer to defend himself from an attacking animal away. By all accounts, the officer was bitten, therefore I think that speaks as to what type of dog that was!
