COLUMBIA, SC More than a police dog died Dec. 16, 2011, as an armed robber fired seven shots during a police manhunt through a North Columbia neighborhood.
While no Richland County Sheriffs deputies or Columbia Police Department officers were hit by bullets, scars remain.
Sheriffs deputies still cry as they remember Fargo, the K9 who was killed.

Hood gave McCreary the maximum 30-year sentence on each attempted murder charge but decided those would be served concurrently. He also gave McCreary the five-year maximum sentence for killing a police dog. That sentence is to be served after the other 30 years.
“A Belgian Malinois born in Holland, Fargo came to the Sheriff’s Department in 2006 when he was just 9 months old. He was trained in narcotics detection, tracking and criminal apprehension.”
Thousands of Police officers from all over the country will be attending funeral services for the canine officer in Columbia, SC.
Police departments all over the country are holding drawings to see which officers will win the all expense paid trips.
Free doughnuts, free coffee, Free meals, Free trips. Maybe someday they will get back to actual policing.
The armed robber intruded into territory that LE have marked off for themselves —
I was hoping it said a policeman who killed a dog got 25 years. He and this guy could share a cell.
In America the law is applied equally to all. /sarc
Some dogs are more equal than others.
We can now expect the same punishment for cops shooting our pets? Naw, didn’t think so.
I’ve got no sympathy for the thug. But I also have no sympathy for cops who indulge in the national sport of killing dogs without trying to use non-lethal means of neutralizing a perceived threat. Some need to get fired and/or go to jail.
Typical piece of garbage that walks our streets. Why are we afflicted by these pieces of crap?
