    Guy kills dog but does not get charged ... even though the dog is a K9 cop

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014...im-devastated/

    He forgot to remove Kela from the vehicle and the dog was left in the cruiser overnight.

    Kela was found dead the next morning, reported WITN-TV in Greenville.



    You or me kill a cop dog (who has more rights that us lowly citizens) and we'd be in the doghouse.

    Pointing that out in these parts is taboo.

    Specific, provable instances seem to be fair game here.

    I think district attorney bashing is not against the rules.

    Nevertheless Williams has been reassigned to courthouse bailiff, the sheriff told WITN-TV, adding that the district attorney’s office elected to not bring charges against the deputy due to lack of criminal intent.
    Yet, that DA would've, or perhaps still does, prosecute a lawful OCer for GATTTOP. That cop would, or did and does not anymore, arrest a lawful OCer for GATTTOP. Lastly, when has "lack of criminal intent" been a deterrence for any level of LE.

    I have decided that whatever unhappiness I might have that the cop was not charged for animal cruelty is just that - unhappiness.

    What does frost me is that he has (to give him the benefit of the doubt) negligently destroyed city property and is not being held accountable for the dollar loss.

    stay safe.

    § 14-360. Cruelty to animals; construction of section.

    (a) If any person shall intentionally overdrive, overload, wound, injure, torment, kill, or deprive of necessary sustenance, or cause or procure to be overdriven, overloaded, wounded, injured, tormented, killed, or deprived of necessary sustenance, any animal, every such offender shall for every such offense be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.

    Intentionally is the operative word. The DA used the wrong term, the DA should've said that there is no law against forgetting you have a dog in your car, leaving the dog to die in your car, overnight, and as such the state will not pursue a criminal complaint.
