So sad. Gut wrenching for his handler and department I'm sure. RIP and thank you Jethro.

I read about this also, and was really hoping he wold be able to pull through. Hurts my heart that he didn't.

I wouldn't say these people should technically charged with "murder". But they should have an equivalent punishment to that which would go along with murder at leas, even if they call it something different. This dog was taking a bullet that would've likely been for a police officer. Just so sad...

How touching. They all saluted as he was brought out.

I've been following this too. I was so hoping he would make it. Hope the POS that did this get what he deserves. He pulled a gun to shoot. This dog saved lives by giving his own. I think the punishment should be the same as if he shot a human LEO. K9s are an extension of their handler.
I pray his handler and family find some peace and comfort after this horrific loss. And that justice is served.

Truly tragic. The dog is a hero and no doubt kept his handler safe. RIP Jethro, you have done your job well!

A friend of mine's dog was shot and killed early this morning, in a SWAT standoff with a lunatic with a gun. That dog absolutely saved his handler and teammates from a disturbed person intent on killing Police Officers. It never get's easier, but we are fortunate to be partnered with such brave and talented K-9's.
