So here’s a story you don’t hear about often, a Meridian police officer’s interaction with two aggressive dogs recently went viral online after the body cam video was shared by Edith Williams, from an organization called Nonlethal Canine Encounters.
The video shows a super chill officer David Gomez who kept his cool when charged at by two very aggressive dogs, one was even foaming at the mouth! Instead of reaching for his gun, Gomez talked and used his baton to keep the dogs behaved, even got them to jump in the back seat of his patrol car! Now that takes some serious balls and skill.
It’s refreshing to see some good news when it comes to dogs vs police, after seeing so many bloody news stories of dogs being shot by under trained officers, which has sparked outrage on social media.
The tactics used by Gomez were actually the same tactics taught in the Meridian police Dept’s Defensive Tactics Canine Encounters course that was used in 2014.
