What a piece of _ _ _ _!!!

Shouldn't there be a mandatory death sentence for cop killers, K-9 or human?

Injuring or killing a police dog or horse does have a considerable sentence behind it, but unfortunately they are just tools to protect the police officer. Imposing a death sentence on them would never pass muster with some of the bleeding hearts that society is breeding these days.

It's a dog. Having once been badly bitten I intend to avoid a repeat. If anyone sics a dog on me no matter the reason I will defend myself even if it means your doggie dies.

I've been biten once when I was a paper boy on a bicycle. But when it comes to cops and their dogs, I am not a criminal and therefore have no reason to fear either one and wouldn't have been running and hiding from them to begin with so chances are, the dog would have remained leashed or been taken away by the handler.

This, while the punishment is stronger, it will never be death sentence. However, I know a few handlers who might kill you for killing their dog. They are a partner.

Yeah, it can be hard to kill a K-9 sometimes, I know a story of a Malinois who took either 18 or 19 bullets for his handler, the entire time going after the suspect. They are raised to be loyal and tough, I wouldn't try it on them.

We would refer to those dogs as "Melon Heads." You could cut off one of their legs and they would still attack as if they didn't feel it. Very awsome creatures, but a little too hot blooded for my temperment.

Yes, I trained several of them for attack and narcotic detection. They bite hard!

I've never had cause nor do I expect to. I still get startled when a dog snaps a fly from the air. Those are very fast creatures with jaws to match.

I still subscribe to the belief that if it has eyes it has vulnerabilities.

I think it was on "60 Minutes" I saw those dogs work airports & boder crossings. I was impressed they can still detect grass hidden within a series of bags and plastic/tin containers.

In one case the dog attacked a tire. The cops discovered all 4 tires filled with weed.
