This was an excerpt that was published after the article I posted above.


In the attached article, the Arizona Daily Star reported on the officer involved shooting that followed the killing of our service dog, Ivan. In this article the reporters mischaracterized some very crucial details about the incident. In particular, the article claimed that "Officer Chris Fenoglio released his K-9 in an effort to keep the man from killing himself". This is not an accurate description of the incident. In fact, Officer Fenoglio released Ivan after seeing the armed suspect approaching several officers while he was holding a large firearm to his side and slightly behind his back, concealing the gun from the officers he was approaching. At no time did Officer Fenoglio observe the suspect lift the gun to his own head nor indicate that he intended to shoot himself.

Now THAT makes a lot more sense!

I think if you participated in the citizen's police academy, a lot of your answers regarding protocol would be answered. You get to ride-a-long with officers at one point and understand why and how they defend themselves and protect others. It is very eye-opening (and slightly scary at times...be prepared...I wasn't!) They also do K-9 demonstrations at some departments, which is lovely to watch.
I was an intern with the police back in Germany... there are big differences but there are things that make sense and that don't make sense. Sending a dog at someone who is holding a gun to his head, doesn't make any sense whatsoever and I'm pretty sure it's not protocol to deal with suicidal people like that. Sending a dog at someone approaching officers with a gun in his hand, however, makes a whole lot more sense.

LOL.. If the suspect was just trying to kill himself, the police should've egged him on to blow his brains out.. one less retard to worry about!

But with the latest development (which makes more sense as to why Ivan was released to go for the suspect), all I have to say is - burn in **** u son of a b@#&h! I hope Satan uses u to fulfil his carnal urges
