    Yeah...
    I want a guy with a gun and a badge to have this kind of mistake of brain power.
    His next mistake could be a kid with a lunch box and he mistook it for a gun.

    Nobody's perfect all of the time. I suspect he's pretty devastated by it. There was a case here a few years back where a grandfather forget to drop his grandchild off at daycare. The kid died in the car. I never thought they should have charged him. Sometimes things happen and they are completely unintentional and a tragedy results. I'm not ready to crucify someone where there's been absolutely no intention to do harm.

    So is the dead dog.

    Zero excuse in my opinion.
    He is not fit to be partnered with a K-9.
    You don't just forget a dog in the car,
    particularly your working partner dog.
    He should be executed.
    Death by confinement in a hot car.

    good grief, it's his partner and he should have been more careful and was for 11 years. this guy STARTED the K-9 unit and raised this dog from a puppy. It was an accident. The dog was probably sleeping and he had paperwork to do. Tragic mistake but in the end it's a DOG.

    Yes seriously.
    Maybe not execute him dead if that offends you,
    just strap him in a hot car till his blood and bodily
    fluids start to boil just a little, till he gets right to the
    brink of death, then fish him out and leave him laying
    on the hot pavement till he regains consciousness.
    I hope he's haunted by this a long time.
    I have no sympathy here.

    It doesn't offend me. Just makes me sad.

    so you put more value on an animals life than a human's?

    it was an accident, it happens, EVEN to people who like animals more than people

    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.
    Then you'll be pleased to see there's a prosecution underway in my area:

    A Prince William County mother of three, whose toddler son died last month after he was left in the family’s minivan for about seven hours, was indicted Tuesday on charges of felony murder and child neglect.

    He was a K-9 Officer. K-9, short for canine. How does this pass as a simple mistake? Officers don't leave their guns in the car when off duty. They take ALL their equipment with them. If I were an officer in a K-9 unit, I would never forget that my canine was the biggest part of my job and the part that defined the type officer I was.
    It just doesn't make sense. Was he smoking crack?
