    Not good.

    What crime would this person be charged with and what could the punishment be?
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    I hope the suspect dies a slow, painful death. I am getting more and more fed up with criminals preying on honest law abiding citizens.
    Don't do things you don't want to explain to the Paramedics!

    Stupidity should be painful.

    I don't know about NJ but I believe the K9's are sworn officers so it would be right up there with killing an officer in the line of duty.

    I was reading and NJ has "Solo's law" named for a NJSP K9 that was killed in the line of duty.

    According to this article it says 5 years.

    http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?se...ime&id=7818132

    A person convicted of killing a police animal in New Jersey could be sentenced to five years in prison.
    Some other touching things from the article.

    Overnight, Gloucester Township police officers lined up outside the Chews Landing Veterinary Hospital. They saluted a fallen hero, a K-9 who had served as part of their police force for nearly all of its three and a half year life.

    The German shepherd lived with a family and they too came to the animal hospital to say a final goodbye.

    "It's a very difficult time for us tonight," said Gloucester Township Police Chief Harry Earle. "There was no respect for injuring someone. And obviously no respect for injuring an animal as well."

    Schultz was given his name as the result of an essay contest in a school in the Philadelphia suburb. The winning entry, from a fifth-grader, said the dog should be named after Dave "The Hammer" Schultz, a tough hockey player for the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1970s.

    Counseling was being offered to the boy who won the contest to name Schultz two years ago.

    K-9's in all the different services Military and Law Enforcement are treated well and respected for what they do. They are given the best care possible and they love what they do. Schultz could not have had a better life, or served to a higher degree.

    Just what I was thinking (fastk9dad). I also thought that K-9's were the same as sworn officer's and that killing one was very bad.

    I hope the loser gets "shafted" when he's in the slammer. That wouldn't be enough.

    Gloucester Township Cpl. Mark Pickard with his partner, Schultz.

    Skyler Robinson was arrested 31/2 hours into a manhunt involving close to 100 officers from the region who searched neighborhoods late into the night as a police helicopter swept through the sky.
    ...
    “Twenty-five agencies were involved,” Earle said. “They responded because they knew the canine had suffered.”
    ...
    Evan Scotese, 19, of Washington Township, was arrested Wednesday. He and Robinson were charged with robbery and resisting arrest. Robinson was also charged with inflicting harm on a law enforcement animal, a third-degree felony that can carry with it a five-year prison sentence and $15,000 fine.
    ...
    Pickard was not available for comment. His wife, Robyn, said he was struggling to deal with the death of his pet and partner, whom he had trained.
    ...
    A memorial service has been scheduled for next Thursday. Police have established a memorial fund to pay for the ceremony as well as for a new dog for the department K-9 unit.
    Losing a pet is hard enough, but to lose you pet AND partner, I can't imagine how he is feeling.


    RIP Schultz.

    Thanks ,there is a good video in that update. It's obvious that he enjoyed his job.

    These dogs come into our lives, they become our trusted partner, confidant, therapist and friend. When they leave us, it is always too early. Each of these dogs takes a piece of our hearts with them when they go. However they leave a part of themselves with our souls. We are better people because of their gift to us.

    Sorry if this seems harsh, but part of this dirt bag's punishment should be "volunteering" for K-9's criminal apprehension training minus the protective padding.
