I find it interesting that people, who may have no problem shooting a criminal human over material things (theft - Horn's case) think that that punishing a criminal human over killing an animal is too harsh.

C'mon people!

I am sorry but a police dog, which is a highly trained, loyal officer willing to give its life for its handler deserves a ton of respect. Any criminal who knowlingly kills a police dog should be charged with murder. Only punishing him with animal cruelty is a complete disservice to the animal and its handler.

I read somewhere once 'The more I get to know people, the more I like animals' .. and , isn't this the truth.

I agree with punishing someone for killing a police dog, BUT......where do you draw the line? It's a felony in most places to kill a dog, a misdemeaner<sp?> to kill a cat?
They are still animals after all........under the right circumstances they would taste fine with a little BBQ sauce.

Dogs are great, sweet, loyal companions. I have considered my dogs as parts of my family and I figure that I would use deadly force against another person to protect them in most cases.

That said, they are still dogs.

You say it's a disservice (sic) to the animal and the handler in this case to only charge the perp. with cruelty to an animal, I say it's a dishonor to human law enforcement officers to charge this perp. with murder for killing an animal.

Don't get me wrong, I value animals' lives as much as anyone on here, but a reasonable person can see that you can't charge someone with the murder of a human when they've killed a dog. Punish them severely, yes, but let's maintain the sanctity of human life.

Its not an arguement of him killing a dog...the fact is that this dog is used for law enforcement. And with that said the dog is a member of the police force.

Poor dog. I think they can charge him with murder of a police officer. That dog is as much a police officer as the rest of them. Sad story.

This guy was a perfectly law abiding citizen and a great role model huh?.....The dog was doing its job, just as the police officers were in trying to get his a$$ of the streets. WHY the does this always happen..EVERYTIME some worthless a$$hole dies while committing a crime there is an uproar about how he was wronged or that the authorities were not following procedure because of some bs bias.

This is exactly why we the world is eff'd. Apparently now its ok to be a hooligan and get away with it. If more people recieved a more harsh punishment for their acts of stupidity and lawlessnes then maybe...just maybe the crime rate would lower. Then we would actually be a stronger country.

i bet if some of those fallen officers could speak up, they would say honor the dog more than themselves. those dogs are THE most loyal living things on earth, imo. i bet there are ALOT of officers who respect the canines more than their human partners! i know i would.

worst a dog is gonna do to me is eat my couch, get into my socks, dirty the floor, etc. k-9 units are too well trained to do any of that. a human being, cop or otherwise, is capable of anything.

i doubt we can count the number of corrupt cops in the world on all the collective motohouston fingers. corrupt dogs? ZERO!

curious have you ever owned a dog? (having one when you were a kid doesnt count, imo)
