I am sorry this happened to you, but I don't think the runner did anything wrong.

You are both people who live in the community, and both have the right to be out using the sidewalks and public places with your dogs. If someone's dog is ill-mannered, overly fearful, aggressive, whatever, the onus falls on that person to take the extra care. It is not the responsibility of everyone else to check their actions for how it may impact a reactive dog.

The runner, using the sidewalk with his in control dog did nothing wrong.

I understand how it could be an unsettling encounter for you, but to direct any hate towards the runner or the runner's dog is unfair to them.
