Cop Kills Two German Shepherds

When a civilian breaks the law, they typically A. get their punishment, B. get off scot-free because they’ve got money and power or a doofy jury, or C. get screwed by a lousy lawyer and end up in prison for a crime they didn’t commit. But when an officer breaks a law, it can often go by ignored, or at least unpunished—a rather Orwellian fact that we shouldn’t tolerate as a whole.

So the “very experienced officer” who handled two German Shepherd dogs and left them to die in his car on what’s so far been the hottest day of the year should be prosecuted under the full extent of the law.
