These fu***c******kers will shoot at anything. The dog was probably harmless. Animal abusers, abusers of power, cowards, civil rights abusers,... you name it, these fu*****c*****kers are it.

Why the F**K should there be a cop mounted on a horse in Little Havana in the first place ?!!

First off, that God forsaken horse leaves poop all over the street curb, leaving a horrible stench on the street !

Does Miami have such an identity crisis, that it has to imitate New York on everything ?!

Get that stupid cop and that God d**n cop off the f**king street and put them in squad cars or bikes !

God D**n Horse off the street !!! ****

Really? Is it really justifiable in shooting and killing the dog? These Miami cops have no respect for human or animal life. Horses should not be in city streets anyhow. Those are wild animals.
