Well I hope, if the K9 cop dog bites, mauls or scratches you, you get to sue for Police Brutality.
Will they be giving the dog's handler the dog's pensions too after it retires?

These are animals used as tools or weapons, NOT human.

This is rediculous!!!!

Cops are paid WELL with our tax dollars to do their jobs!

Making laws that make their lives more valuable than the rest of us is wrong!!!

What happens when these cops become rouge?

Protecting yourself from one of these power drunk nut jobs shouldn't give them the advantage in a court of law.

YOU ARE A TURD ... your brainless response is why police are treated better in the eyes of the law than the people they work for.

Making laws which make cops lives MORE valuable than the people who they are supposes to be protecting is against the constitution.

When a cops conduct turns to mis-conduct ... these kinds of laws make it harder for people to protect yourself from an oppressive government entity.

Won't make a bit of difference. This is strictly a feel good bill for political points, criminals don't care.

Alright cool. Now let's introduce a bill that would hold police accountable for 1st degree murder when they kill scared family pets such as Diablo, Codi, Choco and countless other dogs in and around the City of Rochester because their isolated perception supposedly sees them as "dangerous."

You do not understand what is going on. So before you call someone a turd like you did below, know the facts. You said this is a law to make their lives more valuable. It does not. It already is a felony if you kill a police officer. This is about the K9's they use. If you kill one of them it is going to be a felony.It still isn't considered murder like it would be if you killed a human. It should be a felony to kill the dog. Why is it such a big deal to you unless you are one of the criminals that may be chased by the dog. Pay attention to what you read before you comment. I guess it would be appropriate to call you a TURD if I were to stoop to your level.

Just more of the same. Your dog isn't more important than mine, period. Where is the bill to deter the likes of you from shooting _my_dog, and getting away with it?

No law should value ones life more then other, I don't care if your a female, a female cop, or a female cop dog.

Cops always want us to be punished more for killing them, yet when they wrongfully kill one of us they expect to get off or a lighter sentence.

And why just all this talk about dogs??
Why not police horses?? Those horse that piss and poop all over our streets, are they more valuable then nice horses that don't poop in our streets?
