    A police dog is considered an officer of the law.

    If a suspect had killed the dog he would have been charged with murder.

    Why was the officer only charged with animal cruelty.

    Double standard.
    What about cats? If dogs can become police officers then cats should be allowed too, otherwise its discriminatory.

    Don't know why someone would leave the engine running and not run the A/C to keep the dog cool. Maybe he thought he had the air on, who knows?

    This person was training other people too, so weird.

    A/C or not, leaving a car running unattended for six hours is absurd.

    Car? yes, maybe. I owned a diesel some years ago, when I ran expedited cargo coast to coast, the engine was never turned off, not even for fueling.
    The only time it was shut off was when I found the doorstep at home.

    Idling some car engines for extended periods of time can cause engine damage, so some automakers claim.

    What could a cat do for the police? I can't think of anything.

    Engine running? Probably wasn't left in a "hot car".

    From the article
    The car was running, but the air conditioning was off and outside temperatures reached 86 degrees, KCWY News 13 reported.
    That is nonsense. I hope they tested the officer for drugs.
    He then has the audacity to plead not guilty. How about grow a pair and accept some responsibility.

    I am usually pro police but the number of bad apples is getting ridiculous. Out here in the Northwest in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho we had a similar moron in police clothing kill an innocent 1 1/2 yr old puppy.
    COEUR D’ALENE, ID — An officer shot and killed a dog that was waiting for its owner inside of a parked van. The officer later claimed it ‘lunged’ at him, but it was also revealed that he had his gun drawn the entire time.

    The dog’s owner was Craig Jones, who was sitting inside a nearby restaurant eating breakfast at the time of the shooting. His black Labrador, ‘Arfie,’ was waiting inside his van, with a window half-opened for ventilation.

    A Coeur D’Alene police officer approached the vehicle, apparently because someone called police to report it being a ‘suspicious’ white van that bore similarities to one related to a child-luring case. The unnamed officer went in with his gun already drawn, KREM 2 News reported.

    Arfie sat in the van, anticipating his owner’s return. The officer claims that Arfie then “lunged” at him, and he shot the dog in the chest. Arfie died.

    A photograph of the scene showed that the bullet had actually traveled through glass to reach the dog.

    The officer recorded his actions as necessary to protect himself from a “vicious pit bull,” when the truth was that he killed a black Lab sitting in a parked car. Mr. Jones said the shooting was unbelievable and his dog did not have a mean bone in his body.

    How hot would the interior of the car have been?

    Since the police dog lived with the policeman's family and was buried on his property, it's safe to assume he and his family are gutwrenched right now. Anyone who has pets, especially this one, knows that. He will suffer inside his whole life well beyond any prosecution .
