Cops really hate dogs... now killing their own

PERRY COUNTY, Mississsippi — A Mississippi police officer is under fire from the community after accidentally leaving his K-9 officer in a police cruiser overnight. Some have called for his job while others have called for charges to be filed.

Roughly three weeks ago, the 3-year old Belgian malinois named Napo was left in the vehicle overnight and died of an unknown cause, though the local sheriff said it could have been a heart attack or heat exhaustion while speaking to a local TV station.

Handler Steve Verret has said he simply forgot the dog was in there.

The community is in an uproar. Napo was purchased with donations from local businesses roughly 18 months ago and cost between $5,000 and $10,000.

Local animal rights advocate Katherine Sammons said Verret should be charged.

"I think he needs to get a misdemeanor neglect charge," said Sammons, who represents the Mississippi Animal Advocate Group. "I'm absolutely certain this was not intentional on the officer's part and like I said his family and him are suffering. But there does need to be consequences."

Varret has been reassigned to other duties, but has not been disciplined, according to WLOX.
Why isn't he charged with killing a police officer like a "civilian" would?

i love dogs too but charging him for the death of an officer is retarded.

If anything it should be discipline from within and handled internally.

A civilian would be charged with the death of an officer.

That's what happens to people who aren't cops.

If a police dog bites you and you fight back, you'll be convicted of assaulting a police officer.

When a criminal kills the K-9, it's "killing a cop".

When a cop kills the K-9, he gets reassigned.

Never thought of it like that. That's awful.

Killing a police dog actually. Not as bad as murder, but still a felony:

Section 13A-11-15 Killing a dog used by a peace officer; penalty; exception. No person shall intentionally, knowingly, recklessly or with criminal negligence kill a dog used by a peace officer to perform tasks within the line and scope of said officer's duties. For the purposes of this section the term "peace officer" shall have the meaning prescribed in Section 36-30-1. Any person who violates the provisions of this section shall, upon conviction, be guilty of a Class C felony as defined by this Code. The provisions of this section shall not apply to any person who violates the provisions of this section during the course of an orderly demonstration or activity in pursuit of one's civil rights.


I agree that he should be charged. How in the hell this happened is beyond me. Our K9 guys treat their dogs like their own kids.

I saw a black lab attack a boy (probably age 5-7) while riding my bike through the park yesterday. It was fricked up, I really hate seeing stuff like that.

recklessly or with criminal negligence kill a dog used by a peace officer to perform tasks within the line and scope of said officer's duties.

If that dog was in a police vehicle, this would apply.

The police department should have handled purchasing the dog internally as well. The money to purchase this dog/officer came from outside resources. Another caveat to handling his discipline internally.

Leaving a baby in a car to die wouldn't be an accident, how is this situation different?

Staying away from the obvious different values on human lives and animal lives, it's still not an accident in either scenario.

re: Cops really hate dogs... now killing their own
lots of hate in this thread.Did the dog suffer from heat,lack of air etc. if not and It died from heart failure,I fail to see that leaving it asleep in the back seat would be a crime. people haul dogs in carriers and special compartments all of the time and are on the road for long hours and they do not die or suffer.They usually lay quietly and sleep while traveling.What makes this so unusual?

With all due respect, I would never leave either of my K9s in my car. Accident or not.

How do you not realize your partner didn't exit the vehicle with you?
