Beloved Dog Dies While Owner Held By Police
The emotional, frantic owner was met with comments from the officer such as "It's a dog, okay? You can get another one, relax." The couple waited about 20 minutes for a ticket to be written. Tragically, Missy died while they waited.
Police Chief Howard Williams was reported by the Express-News as saying This was not our finest hour.
1. Could this cop have handled this any worse?
2. What happens when someone hurts or injures a police dog? They get the fucking book thrown at them, that's what. I guess normal dogs and their owners don't apply.
Some police forum responses. Note - many are cops.
