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 Sheriff’s deputies or Columbia Police Department officers were hit by bullets, scars remain.

Sheriff’s deputies still cry as they remember Fargo, the K9 who was killed.

As opposed to the serfs, who just have to shut up when the Gestapo guns down the family dog.

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.

I was hoping it said a policeman who killed a dog got 25 years. He and this guy could share a cell.

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.
