FWIW, I don't call a dog a "K-9" or a "canine" any more than I call a cow a "bovine" or a cat a "feline." It is a cutesy name made up to try to set a working dog apart from "ordinary" dogs. It is still a dog.

Mich. K-9 turns on handler, is fatally shot

The K-9 would not release the bite after several commands

By PoliceOne Staff

PONTIAC, Mich. — An Oakland County Sheriff's deputy shot and killed his K-9 after the animal attacked him during a trip to the veterinarian Thursday.

Sheriff's officials say Gunner, a German Shepherd who had been with the department for five years, had recently undergone remedial training for "serious aggression" and needed a veterinary consultation as the next step.

When the K-9 team arrived for the appointment and were outside the deputy's vehicle, the dog suddenly lunged and bit the deputy's arm, near his face.

The K-9 would not release the bite after several commands. The handler, a 23-year veteran of the sheriff's department, fatally shot the dog.

The deputy was admitted to the hospital for treatment of a puncture wound to his arm and is expected to recover, according to WXYZ.

I guess dogs are more like people than I thought. After working around horses my entire life, I know there are some equine sociopaths.

Equine- not what I call them but I had to put that in just for you, David.

The question is did he kill a cop?

No. No matter what label is applied, a dog is not a person, and therefore, cannot be a peace officer.

A DOG IS A DOG!

Now, suppose a human police officer went off his nut and attacked another police officer and was killed. That would be a homicide to be sure, but most likely justifiable.

There are laws on the books regarding assaulting, killing, or harassing a police animal, but if a police animal goes nuts and attacks a handler, killing it is also most likely justifiable.

When a perp shoots or kicks a police dog, isn't he charged with assault of a police officer?

No. Not possible, not in Texas anyway. There are laws to protect service animals, but a police officer is a human.

I know it is tempting and fun to try and anthropomorphize animals, but a dog is still a dog, and it will always be a dog.

Classic, I don't believe that is true. What do your actual statutes say?

I know if someone harms a police dog, it makes the papers, and the public gets all excited about it, because generally, people like dogs better than they do cops, but I will not believe that the actual law calls for a greater penalty for harming a dog than for harming a human.

Apparently, it depends on the state or jurisdiction:

"In most states, a police dog is considered a full-fledged police officer, sometimes even given a badge. As such, most laws find assaulting a police dog to be equal or very similar to assaulting a human officer, and as a result some agencies will deem it acceptable for officers to open fire on a person who is intentionally hurting a police dog, with apparent attempt to kill it. However, this is not a unanimous policy."

This is applicable in a few more states...

A violation of Florida’s
police dog law constitutes a third-degree felony, which is punishable by
a maximum five-year prison term and a maximum $5000 fine.24 The
trial judge sentenced the defendant to eleven months and twenty-nine
days in jail and ordered restitution in the amount of just over $4000.25

Fla. Stat. § 843.19(2) (2000) (provides that “[a]ny person who knowingly and willfully
and without lawful cause or justification inflicts bodily harm, permanent disability,
or death upon a police dog, fire dog, SAR dog, or police horse commits a felony of the
third degree . . . ”); Tom Spalding, Prison Time Given to Man in Dog Death, Sarasota
Herald-Trib., 1B (May 6, 2000).

Spider, please don't quote Wikipedia as any sort of authority. ANYONE can put what they THINK is correct on Wikipedia.

Classic, thanks for the citation. For a fair comparison, what is the penalty in Florida for committing the same sort of offense against a police officer?

Dogs sometimes wear body armor. Even hog dogs wear armor. You can get flotation vests for dogs too. Some police dogs wear badges, but until you can get one to put one paw on the Bible, raise the other paw, and answer affirmatively to the Oath of Office, they won't be Peace Officers.

Assault on Police officer is about the same punishment as an assault on a police dog...

Assault on Police Officer
Felony, Up to $5,000 Fine &/or 3 to 15 Yrs Pen.


Then we get into the degrees of assault..Which carry stiffer sentencing...

a police dog killed in the line of duty is often given a full police funeral
Naturally they do not compare the Killing of a police dog as murder, But the Assault charges are just as stiff....

They do not take lightly anyone messing with anything that is Law Enforcement Connected...

Then on top of that, Florida has some of the stiffest animal abuse laws in the country....

The Dog's been watching the cop and had dirt on him. He must have committed some crimes so the dog thought it was a good time to make an arrest.

Or maybe the dog was just mad about the trip to the vet. Most animals learn to fear the vet visit.

Personally, I think it's appropriate and respectful. K-9's have saved many human lives, both in the police and military sectors.

All dogs have teeth and can or will bite if provoked. Some dogs have hair triggers. I deal with dogs all the time in my profession and constantly hear from owners "my dog dont bite". I would have shot the dog too if it were locked onto my harm trying to make a snack of it. Cocker Spaniels are the number one dog in all reported dog bites in the U.S., not Rotts, Pit Bulls or German Sheperds.

Maybe if a higher percentage honored this oath, LEO's would be held in higher regard than dogs.

I know many more dogs that act more human than punk ass kids and A lot of adult humans...they are more compassionate, loving/ loyal /obedient
than most "humans"

And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death.

i have a friend that breeds and train dogs for police and search and rescue, that now has a military contract {Belgian malinois}, he has taught me more about dogs and training them, {of course never as much as the experts here know}

anyway problem police dogs have is when they get a dog they are stuck with it, some times it is a good choice, but often it is a 5,000 dollar + mistake and they are stuck with it, and just like people not all are cut out to be cops

Condition 1 is the way to go. If that makes you nervous, carry chamber empty or get a Glock.

I own my own business. Have for the last 13 years. We employ about 100 people.

I would aver nothing of the kind, nor would I defend those who are scumbags, nor would I pretend that those with my same profession (and thus myself) are somehow a cut above everyone else.

How about you?

Re-bending the thread a little, one of the dogs in my overseas unit had to be shot by his own handler. It was a singular incident. And there was an opposite case, in which the dog was sent back to the States because he couldn't be made 'mean'. The methods of conditioning the dogs were brutal, but this dog never stopped wanting to approach people for the purpose of licking them while wagging his tail (I hope he found a good family).

Control is an illusion, because nobody knows what's going to happen next.

Any animal is still an animal including a dog and its our human perception that changes towards the animal or in this case the dog. However the dog remains as itself still an animal with the pack mentality and we are either considered the leader of its 'pack' (and at some point it may or may not attempt to challenge that) or a stranger...When I train dogs in the military fashion I always try to keep this mentality in mind and is why for example I never bring my face to theirs or any other animal for that matter as it can be considered as an act of aggression.
