Cop Forgets His Police Dog In Car, Dog Dies Of Heat Stroke, No Charges (InformationLiberation)
Thursday August 22nd, 2013
Police in New York pushed to make it a felony for a citizen to kill a police dog, yet what happens when a police officer kills his own dog?
Apparently, not much.
Bennettsville, South Carolina police officer Robert Miller left his dog named "Tank" in his police cruiser with the windows rolled up and no water when he went to do some paperwork at the police department. He completely forgot he left Tank in his car and the dog, which by the way no doubt cost tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars to train, died a horrible death from heat stroke.
Was the officer charged with negligent homicide? Animal cruelty?
Of course not, he faced no charges. Instead he got a meager 90-day suspension and was forbidden from being a K-9 officer.
A tax-slave citizen in Maryland who did exactly the same as this officer by leaving her dog in her hot car when she went to the mall for some 90 minutes was just charged with animal cruelty, specifically for "confinement in an unsafe manner," she's facing 90 days in jail and $1000 fine, and her dog lived and is seemingly doing just fine.
There are two sets of laws in this country, those for the rulers, and those for the ruled.
