Sheriff's Dog Stabbed, Killed During Pursuit

April 04, 2011  | 

A Washington sheriff's dog was killed in the line of duty after he was stabbed numerous times by a suspect with an outstanding warrant.

Clark County (Wash.) Sheriff's Office dog, Kane, was attempting to apprehend 31-year-old Keegan Graves, who allegedly stabbed the black Dutch shepherd multiple times and kept running, reports Fox News.

Kane chased Graves after he rammed a police vehicle and took off running. Kane, who was trained to bite and hold, had worked for the Clark County Sheriff's Office for six years and was scheduled for retirement in 2012.

Where was his partner,why didn't he shoot the suspect,did he let his K-9 off the leash too far away that he couldn't keep up and protect his partner,bad procedure,bad training.That K-9 is not your partner if you put him in harms way,he is just a tool.

Is the sentence the same for a police dog/police officer? I hope so! If a scumbag killed my dog I beat him within a inch of his life. We need tougher laws and even tougher judges.

This story is another sad one, the only thing I can think of is the dog and suspect had a big jump on the K-9 Handler. But, I agree with my fellow LEO, we need much tougher laws and less liberal judges. This scumbag will get off........it should have been taken care that night, all these scumbags keep doing this kind of crap because we let them out and give them another try to fit in with society. BS, leave them locked up or kill them. Sick of all this BS day in and day out. We need to have some changes and we need then now.
