    I agree. I think he will be fired and go to jail on that one. I don't believe that unintentional stuff. :wow:Pretty disappointing.

    I am interested in knowing the cause of death as well.

    This situation reminds me of the best advice I ever got from my first chief.... If you mess up, it happens, but be honest about it. If you mess up, then lie about it, you can be assured the truth will come out in the end, and the consequences will be ten fold worse.

    I had a friend that got fired from his department for lying and not the incident. So this officer's career is toast.

    So the dog died, or was accidentally killed, and the officer buries it, reports it stolen and gives media interviews about the dog being missing for 9 months?

    Damn.

    Not smart. I do kinda feel for the guy, though. His partner dies and he tries to cover it up out of fear that he will lose his job... now he lost his job and is criminally charged...

    He'd most likely still have his career if he had stood tall, told the truth, and taken his lumps.

    Did he leave his partner in a hot car to die from heat exposure?

    DON'T. LIE.

    ^ This.

    Rarely is it the actual "event" that gets an officer in trouble. Usually it's the lie. This is yet another example.

    Sorry, I don't feel for the guy. If he did nothing wrong, HE WOULDN'T HAVE COVERED IT UP.

    I feel for anyone who loses their job as a copper and gets proseucted, regardless of their crime. That fall from grace is a harsh one.

    I dont understand why would he do it on purpose? its not like his partner could rat him out or something...its a dog? Im sure it was an accident, that being said he should have fessed up right away. No one deserves jail time for accidently killing an animal IMO.

    I do not put humans and animals on the same level.

    What are you for in terms of animal rights? Even the Torah endorses some type of rights for animals, even with the animals being used for food, and for temple sacrifices.

    Personal responsibility has all but disappeared in this country. The liberals have conditioned people to blame everybody but themselves when bad things happen.

    I haven't read the specific AL statute mentioned in the article (Killing of a Police Dog) but I'm guessing that there may be a component of neglect that was a part of this... i.e. leaving dog in a hot car, not feeding/watering properly, putting the dog in a dogfight, etc. I'm just throwing things out there. The felony charge may also be something agreed upon by the prosecutor, to guarantee that the department could fire the officer immediately without waiting for the outcome of the court case (as they might have been forced to do with misdemeanor only). I could forsee the felony eventually being dismissed or pled down and the former officer being convicted of the misdemeanor (Filing a False Police Report) when it's all said and done.

    This is true, he could have engaged in criminal behavior that caused this I dont know.


    Im not Jewish, I do however believe the animals have a purpose and it is out job to be responsible for them to some extent. Lets say for sake of argument, he left him out in the elements or in a car and the dog died. Its sad, its negligent and a shame but it shouldn't ruin the mans life. Police dog or not, its a still a dog.
