    Ironically, the officer, Jeff Gore, created the K-9 unit 11-years ago. He raised Liberty from a pup. A bloodhound, she was used for search and rescue, which is why she was kenneled. The other dog, Ceiko, is a drug sniffing German Shepherd, and goes home with its handler because they get called out at all hours.
    So this incredibly evil and unbelievably stupid guy manages to cork all these horrifying tendencies for years - even while raising the puppy he will be itching to kill some years down the road?

    Parents do leave their kids in blistering hot cars and sometimes they die. Sometimes this is because the parents were drunk or drugged or too busy banging some lust-interest to keep track of time. Sometimes careful, loving parents simply get distracted and tragedy happens. I guess we all think that such a thing could never happen to any of us. I've thought that myself.

    I think this is a horrible accident. I think this guy is completely destroyed by his error. Assuming he was not drunk, drugged, or sexually engaged, whatever official penalties he may face, I doubt that anything the department or the courts can do him will be anywhere near the punishment he's dishing out to himself right now.

    I hope this story will spur some inventor-type to come up with a device parents and pet owners can use that will prevent this from ever happening. :(

    They are already out there. Link

    If I can find a link in 10 minutes, I am sure the K9 units in the police newsletters, boards and stuff could have found them if they cared.
    Another 5 minutes looking...

    So would every parent whose never thought to look for that one who doesn't care as well?
    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.

    In most instances, yes that would be correct.
    If my boss and my dog were both drowning,
    and I could only save one, it would be the dog.
    And I like my boss.

    Little bit of a difference. Parents and pet owners might not know about something like this, but cops have associations and newsletters and should have known. Or maybe they did but it would have cut into their doughnut time to check it out.
    I'm not saying the cop did not care about the dog, but as the originator of the K9 unit and being in Texas, where rumor has it it sometimes gets hot, it does not take a genius to think "Hmmm, I've had dogs as a partner for 11 years and it gets hot down here. I wonder..."
    I am sure he is devastated. I am sure her is tearing himself apart.
    And I am sure his partner is still dead.
