Letter to the editor: Dog verdict disgusting

| Tuesday, January 22, 2019 10:00 a.m

I absolutely cannot believe the “not guilty” verdict in the case of the UPS driver attacked by three German shepherds trained as attack dogs (“Penn Township man found not guilty of dog law citations in UPS driver mauling,” Jan. 9, TribLIVE).

It was weird that those dogs were not euthanized immediately after the attack. However, the fact that they have since been put down tells us that they were in the wrong. The owners did not have control of these vicious dogs, and it should not make one bit of difference if they were on their property or not. It is a delivery person’s job to get the package to the address. Drivers should not have to fear for their lives when they are working.

This is disgusting on so many levels. Shame on the district judge.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
