If you leave your kid in a hot car and he dies, you have committed a crime. I think we all agree on that. The authorities warn about this all of the time. Hold onto that fact for a bit.
We are told that police canines are "officers". It is a crime to kill a police dog. Police dog handlers refer to the dogs as their partner.
Why then when A police dog is left in a hot car the cop gets a 30 day suspension and nothing else? He killed his partner through negligence.
