We all know that if it was anyone else besides the law, they would be charged with animal cruelty.

I always thought a K-9 was classed as an officer. so will this K-9 officer receive the funeral it deserves after being left for dead by its partner.
After all any motion towards a K-9 by a civilian can be interpreted as assault.
so in the grand scheme of things this is a big deal, we the public have to treat the dog with the same respect as a LEO where as the LEO treats them as a dog.

"Kela," a 9-year-old Belgian Malinois, said Duplin County Sheriff Blake Wallace. She had been with her handler, Deputy Kevin Williams, for four-and-a-half years.
Deputy Williams was getting off duty on Aug. 19 when he got a call that his child was sick. Williams then drove his own squad car home, went inside to change, and left to take care of his sick child, said Sheriff Wallace. Williams left Kela in the squad car, and a family member found the dog dead the next day.
Sheriff Wallace said Williams was not charged because there was no proof of criminal intent. Sheriff Wallace said that Williams is very upset about the dog's death. Kela and Deputy Williams were members of Duplin Interstate Criminal Enforcement. The dog was trained to track down narcotics and people.
Despite the accident, Sheriff Wallace said Deputy Williams has been a great employee. Deputy Williams has not been charged, but has been reassigned to bailiff duty.
Wtf? He isn't charged? We all know that if it was anyone else besides the law, they would be charged with animal cruelty. You have been with the dog for 4 1/2 years. No excuse. This is Str8 Up Bull that he isn't' at least fired for killing a cop.
