The dog in the picture IS a Mal.
FL Statutes would cover the killing no matter the location. Our statutes are pretty rough for interfering, harming, inflecting permanent disability, or killing a SAR, a Fire Dog, a LE K-9 or Police Horse. I believe it is FL Statute 843.19 but I don't have a book in front of me right now. Penalities are even stiffer for individuals with a history of felonies. Specific charge & degree would be dictated by the State Atty's Office.Quote: If they go by Broward laws, the suspect if facing murder of a police officer chargers (I don't know if it is the same in Miami-Dade).
That hospital doesn't have a trauma center so he had to go to another one.Originally Posted By: GSDadIt isn't going to help the scumbag much that he shot the dog in front of a hospital. The only place worse would be a school.

It is a felony but not capital.Quote:He has been charged with aggravated assault with a motor vehicle on a law enforcement officer; aggravated fleeing and eluding; resisting an officer with violence; and principal in the death of a police dog, which is a felony, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.
