The dog is considered an officer. The handler should be charged with murder.

It's really not a big deal, remember its just a dog, a animal, the really sad part is the loss of the tax payer revenue that went into training the police dog,on average between $14,500-$19,000 depending on location of training. If I was in command of DPS cainine dept., I would be more concern on how to find availiable taxpayer funds in this poor econmy to purchase another cainine, I wouldnt be concerned one bit about a dog cooking its brains out in a police cruiser, its just a animal, accidents happen, thank God it wasnt a child.

I have to agree that the pups are the only good cops, the rest of them are taxpayer abusing bastards. I see these idiots daily go into a restaurant and leave their cars running. No canine, they just have unlimited taxpayer fuel. Funny thing one of these idiots said that they are immune to the cell phone laws, traffic violation laws and some others. Wow open ticket for corruption.
