    I've heard (while being aware that you could hear anything) that a police dog is considered a LEO and if you kill it, in the eyes of the law, you've killed a police officer. Not sure how true all of that is, but I feel for him if they do indeed deem that Mr Mathis handled him wrong.

    i think we've 6 or 7 children dead in the past few years from asian folks who leave their kids in cars while gambling .. now the casino's patrol the car parks etc

    but leaving a pet in a car will get you 5 years at least here .. the asians get about the same

    I think it should be an eye for an eye for that crime...you leave a helpless child or animal to die locked up, you die locked up the same way......

    I was sitting here wondering where where's al sharpton in all this.... Then I read further and saw it was a yellow lab. Poor little guy gets no support..

    On a serious note I'm shocked how anyone can be so negligent with a hound.

    Unfortunately the police departments look at the dog's like tools. As an example,if a criminal is trying to kill a police dog the police officer can not kill the crminal becausen the dog is only a tool. Unfortunatley dog's die due to being kept in hot police cars quite often and it is despicable.

    I live in Iowa and had not seen this on any local news sources. Bet they gloss over this incident and nothing will happen. But if it were a non-cop...watch out.

    That is sad, can you imagine the suffering the poor dog had to go through its last minutes of life? Thats a shame! Whoever left the poor animal inside the car needs to be charged with animal cruelty and hauled off to jail but since it was a cop then the law isnt going to do anything to the person because he IS the law. :mad:

    It is simple. If you or I do it, it is a crime. If a LEO does it, it's an "accident".
