VIDEO: Cop Tries to Shoot Dog, Ends Up Shooting Himself

VIDEO: Cop Tries to Shoot Dog, Ends Up Shooting Himself

A California sheriff’s deputy is feeling the sting of humiliation after he attempted to shoot a fenced-in dog, but failed, succeeding only in shooting himself.

The deputy, who works with the Riverside County Court Services Division, was reportedly serving an eviction notice at a Riverside home on Wednesday at around 2p.m. when a “large dog” approached him.

If only it were a kill shot

Like they are trained to put in we the people & our pets! I wasted 90 min @ a Riverside Sherrif's "safety checkpoint" last Friday . No reasonable suspicion required they were just outright fleecing everyone coming into Lake Elsinore on the 74 west. I imagine the only reason I didn't get hemmed up is because I only carry id from ps7.

Aaron Russo, Nikola Tesla, Ron Paul, I'm jus' sayin'

What a bitch!

Beautiful bitch dog, sweetie pie. What kind of a pansy gets so scared from a dog barking he panics and shoots himself. This must be from training. See a pit, shoot it OR YOU WILL DIE!! So many cops are just scared little pussies. "I put my life on the line. Every day. I have to do whatever it takes to make it home." You don't get extra rights. The construction worker and the fisherman put their life on the line more than you. Just because you "could" die, doesn't make you different from everyone else. We all risk our lives everyday to go to work. You don't see us being panicked little girls a about it.

I must say I disagree

With such strong profanity censorship. I understand the sentiment, but I disagree.

"Tu ne cede malis, sed contra audentior ito."

I hear ya

I agree.
"B ! tch" is not so offensive it should be censored. But, it is what it is.... Someone else's property.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy

the dog seems fine with the children...

maybe it only likes humans.

There Is a GOD!


They ALWAYS say a Dog is a GOOD Judge of Character.


The owner looks like he almost wanted to burst out laughing while trying to keep a straight face talking about feeling sorry for the stupid cop getting accidentally shot. Well played sir. You came off with much class than Barney Fife and the LE PR spin.

I Think We Ought To Put This Cop Up For Moron Of The Year...

The dumb shit shoots himself in the leg because he freaked out like a pussy...


This should happen...

This should happen more often and we would all be much safer.





How did they word that?

A large breed Pit Bull? That dog is a third the size of my German Shepard.
This may be the first time I have heard of a cop shooting off a gun and not emptying all his rounds. In this case, that's probably a good thing, LOL

In the video,

you see little children standing over and hugging that "vicious pitbull."

I bet the dog went for his gun.... ;)

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Dog shoots cop.

Dog shoots cop.

I'm surprised, actually.

I expected the official statement to say the dog pulled out a 9 and shot the cop, and that it is now being booked for attempted murder.

wow, what a menacing looking

wow, what a menacing looking dog. Way to go Barney Fife. Thank God the dog is fine.

Yep sounds like Riverside to me. And after all of that:


Piece of s-h-i-t Sheriff's Dept Spokesman

Lies right on camera and says dog attacked the deputy.
Dog just barked like he's supposed to.
