    Friggen dumbass... :mad:


    GREENVILLE (CBSDFW.COM) – A K9 officer in Greenville has died.
    The Greenville Police Department is grieving over the loss of one of its two police dogs. Her name was Liberty, but she died trapped in the back of a hot squad car. Her handler apparently forgot to put her in the police department kennel when he got off work Wednesday afternoon. “This is a difficult time for the Greenville Police Department,” Chief Dan Busken told CBS 11 News. And he adds the officer feels terrible. “He’s devastated, and I don’t know if that term is even strong enough.”
    May the FORCE be with you!

    How do you "forget" your partner? This doesn't pass the smell test. This Officer needs some investigation. Even as a civilian, you don't just forget that you have an animal in the car with you. As an Officer in a K-9 unit, there is one special piece of required hardware that makes you a K-9 unit. I don't get it.:mad:

    This is so terrible. Cars can become so hot. There's been so many cases of people and pets dying after being left in cars you would think people would know by now.

    Hell I left a couple of cans of Dr Pepper in a car this weekend and a few hours later I found that they had exploded from the heat.

    I can't imagine how hot it really gets in a closed vehicle.

    I opened a bottle of water left in my truck the other day, and literally burned my lips as I tried drinking it. It's no joke.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    This happened in the valley a couple of years ago. The officer received death threats and his career in law enforcement was essentially ruined.

    But these same people who make death threats when a dog is killed don't even bat an eyelash when a parent does the same thing with their baby.

    The double standard ticks me off.

    If you're going to get angry about the dead dogs, get angry about the dead babies too.

    We get at least 1-2 cases of dead babies in cars each year here. The chorus is always the same. "It was an accident. Let the parents grieve." So frustrating.

    Agreed. I don't even leave a plant in the car. How does anybody do this in ignorance when we know what WILL happen? This is inexcusable.

    I once had to measure the temperature inside a phone company van in Florida when I was selling them some test equipment.

    In the back it got to 140 degrees.

    The handler should be sentenced to 10 hours inside a closed car under a beating sun.
    Then fired and sent to Arpaio's tent city for good measure.

    It's a tragedy, but my guess is that it really was completely unintentional. I can't see condemning the guy for what was just a clear mistake. There is a difference between purposely leaving a dog, kid, or pain in the ass spouse in the car, and merely having a mistake of brain power.
