    California has some of the strictest laws concerning Animal Cruelty. If you leave your Dog in a locked car, you could face Misdemeanor charges. If the dog dies, it could well be Felony Charges. Unless you are a cop. Then it is a terrible tragedy and leave the cop alone as he is suffering the loss of his partner.

    Police K9 officer dies after being left in hot patrol car | Daily Mail Online

    Anyone else would have been arrested already. Anyone else would be blasted by the press as a cruel and evil individual who betrayed and killed a poor defenseless dog through malicious negligence. But the cop? The cop is not going to be identified. The cop is not arrested. The cop is not charged. The cop is facing an internal investigation.

    Is It Animal Abuse to Leave Your Pet in a Locked Car?

    Now you can say that people are not arrested for it.

    Woman arrested for leaving dog in hot car in Palm Desert

    That dog lived, and the owner was still arrested and charged with Animal Cruelty.

    Either the law applies to all, or it is unjust. Either we hold all to account, or we are hypocrites in holding only a few to answer for their crimes. This is America, where no one is above, or below, the law in theory. It is a shame we don’t even pretend to practice that.

    An airman I knew who mismarked a classified document got 5 years at Fort Leavenworth, why is a sick drunk bitch who keeps falling down, failed Demoncrap Candidate, still walking free? Yeah, there is differences in our justice system, and until, We the People unite against the fuckers, some will go to jail, some wont.

    There was supposedly a malfunctioning warning system designed to prevent this sort of occurrence. How many other cases have there been in which a government-provided system existed to warn the vehicle owner if it was getting to hot inside for the animal? I'm pretty sure the answer to that is zero, making your comparisons fall a bit flat.

    Maybe the reason why the cop will not be charged is because of whatever was being done during the time that dog was in the car alone. Not to say that the dog's life means nothing in the grand scheme, but that cop may have been in the middle of something more severe and if they were, walking away from that scene only would've dug his hole deeper. The cop who left the dog in there did report what happened and so it isn't like they tried to cover it up. Instead, full responsibility was taken and in my opinion, consideration for doing that much at least should be shown.

    God bless you and the officer always!!!

    The officer couldn’t be bothered to check? His duty is to work with the dog. Take care of the dog. A pet is a companion. A working animal is a partner. If anything it makes the comparison worse.

    You always break that out. I have always responded the same. When have I called for any restrictions on guns. I mean, I get you have a half track mind, but really.

    If the device that warns the officer malfunctioned then that could be a contributing factor. According to your article, they are still investigating the the cause and circumstances behind the death and who may or may not be at fault.

    Looks like you are jumping to conclusions just to stir up crap.

    That was his partner and the article says they were off duty at the time, so he just leaves his partner in an overheated car.

    He should not have another K9 assigned to him. Perhaps his cellphone went off and he turned it off as he was frollicking in the hay or drinking at a bar, or didn't hear it due to noise, or maybe he didn't turn the app on.
