I don't even like dogs...

A residential burglary suspect this morning shot and killed Bo, an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department canine.

You have to be a real piece of shit to shoot a dog.

*sniff* Poor Bo. I hope his human partner heals.

Killing an officer in commission of a crime (or getaway) should always be a capital offense. Ordinarily, I value humans more than animals--human officers are more important than animal officers--but service animals are infinitely more valuable than criminals. Life imprisonment seems fair--less than the penalty for killing a human officer, but more than a random "animal abuse" charge.

In Indiana, killing a police dog is a Class D felony, up to three years in prison.

Good grief. You spend more time in Michigan City for stealing a laptop.
