Yes the Edmonton PD where severely censured by a judge for shooting someone that was stabbing a police K9 not too long ago. This is the natural result of that.
There should be severe reprecussions for injuring a Police K9 while he is in the line of duty. No consequences = little reason to cooperate. There is a reason many criminals choose not to fight the cops. Its because there are severe consequences and for most its just not worth it.

I must be just simple.
They say a fully trained police dog can cost on average, what? 15,000 dollars? I would make this very simple. The criminal goes to prison, works a prison job for .30/hour, and he can just stay in prison until he has paid his debt to society. .30/hour x 10 hours/day x 6 days/week x 52 weeks per year = 936 dollars per year, which makes his stay a little over 16 years.
I think that is fair.

Just Horrible makes me mad

I absolutely agree that stronger laws have to be put in place.
RIP Quanto. You earned your wings

RIP Quanto. You served well. Very sad for all involved. I firmly believe that killing or injuring a LE K9 should hold equal punishment to killing it injuring a LEO. This dog gave his life doing what he was trained to do. He had no choice, he did not volunteer. But he did his job anyway.
