    I really hate posting stuff like this but this really pisses me off. My brother in law is a K-9 trainer and he is furious. The most loyal dog is a police K-9. Max was shot and killed in the line of duty in Lake Wales, Fl this morning. RIP Max. :hattip:

    It is sad. RIP Max

    Fortunately - there a likely karma for people this stupid.

    Cop killers in prison - no one would give you shit for s second. Let it get out that you killed a police dog - you will be just below child molester in most prisoner eyes. Even the lowest of the low recognize the value of a dog.

    There is karma alright.
    It states in the article the perp isn't going to prison.
    He is in a better deserved place than that now..

    Man, the whole thing just sucks. Max saved lives, because that kind of shit bag would have shot anyone to try and get away. I feel for the officers losing their buddy, but I also hope the woman the shit bag assaulted is ok.

    My heart goes out to the officer and his family, the department and the community for their loss :(

    RIP Max...

    These photos are from Police Week in DC May '17 & May '18. If you ever have a chance to attend this event, it's very moving...

    If you can't make Police Week, but happen to be in DC w/some spare time, the memorial is well worth the visit!

    The small K9 memorial that was set up those 2 years and shown below was something that was done each year and is a temporary display. In 2018, it was announced that a permanent K9 memorial would be created...


    Overview of a small section of the memorial (for officers) at night...
    upload_2022-8-3_21-5-40.jpg

    Over a 2 week period folks visit the memorial and attach photos, cards, etc. of loved ones and fellow officers they knew or worked with...
    upload_2022-8-3_21-6-17.jpg

    upload_2022-8-3_21-6-45.jpg


    This is the temporary memorial that was set up for K9s... these dogs were killed or died in the line of duty sometime in '17 or through mid '18, so only about 14-18 months worth of K9 deaths!

    This is a close up of one of the inscriptions of a portion of the memorial...
    upload_2022-8-3_21-8-31.jpg

    For you guys in AZ (Phx), there is a AZ K9 memorial at the Wesley Bolin Memorial Park; it is also well worth the visit if you're in the area!

    This is Todd, one of the dogs that my brother in law was training last year. His daughter was outside with him and a car saw him, sped up, and purposely hit him, all while she watched. Of course the car took off and it was caught on the neighbors camera. Poor guy had just turned 2.

    Man, people can let you down, but a good dog never will.

    Sorry for your BIL's and other K-9 officers' losses. RIP, Max, Frankie, Todd.
