A police K-9 is a police officer and they have a job to do that we as human beings cannot do. They are truly some of today's heroes who's job requires them to do very dangerous tasks and they do it know questions asked. Mans best friends saving lives and sacrificing himself for his team. All I hope is that the person who killed him gets what he deserves because that dog had nothing to do with him being put in that situation.

Awww... he was beautiful! I know his death will upset any other dog lovers out there, too. But I hope he gets to run around in that big, open grass field in the sky where there are endless other dogs' butts to sniff, endless people throwing balls to fetch, and as many treats as he wants!

Execute the bastard who killed Freddy!

I seriously like animals more than most people. And they are hero's for what they do and his life should be celebrated.

Belgian Malinois are so awesome. Fearless and loyal and the best crime dog. Glad they are giving him this memorial for his service. Like has been stated they are law enforcement and are key to our safety.

R.I.P Freddy and thank you for you service.

Good.  Smile

Now I know that Freddy has passed to the other side and is using the guy who killed him as a chew toy

Sad  Sad I always loved dogs and thought they were cute, even though Freddy could probably chew me up into pieces if he wanted to.

Sad to read, but the truth behind all this is that a K-9 is sent in to dangerous areas before the agent himself, to catch a bullet if it comes down to it. The "positive" side of it as that the dog doesn't know this, and only does what it's been trained to do.

Freddy was not only an FBI dog, but also a family member cause he most likely lived together with his handler and family.
May he rest in peace, and strength to his family.

Actually, no. The dog is not there to catch a bullet. The dog is there to do what an agent or officer can not do or can not do as well as the dog. Occasionally, this does mean that the dog is exposed to a more elevated threat, but I don't know one K-9 officer that would send his dog in to catch a bullet, not one.

Quoting Fr8Mech (Reply 10):

In a situation where the officer does not feel it's safe to go in and arrest someone due to that this person might be armed, a K-9 will be sent in. Of course not to get hurt or killed, but to disarm the threat so the officer(s) can proceed with an arrest. But if this means that the dog will be shot, so be it. They rather sacrifice the dog then the officer. That's how it works. So yes, the dog is there to catch a bullet if needed, as the dog is an extension of the officers arm.

They shot the guy. However a few days latter masses came out for the funeral of the "terrorist" the FBI shot. Also he was praised by many members of the community as being a really great guy. It amazes me that people could think this guy was so great, when even the leftist Detroit Free Press had nothing good to say about him and his gang of radicals.

Where is PETA in all this? A few days ago they come down on an NBA player for killing a bat, but are silent when it comes to a radical jihadist killing a dog....

You hear the crap going on about this case now. Some Detroit lawyer is trying to play up that that nut that was killed by the FBI was no terrorist, but just a bystander who happened to there helping his friends move furniture. According to the lawyer's statement on the radio today all of the men were wrongly targeted by the FBI. Lawyers who defend the enemies of this nation are no better than the enemy themselves.

So you believe that there are some people who should not have the right to legal representation in a court of law? I suggest you leave the U.S. immediately and move to China, Cuba, or Iran. You will be much happier in any of those places. After all, if you're guilty, who needs a silly thing like a trial?

In fact, the public defenders who represent these people are the true heroes, because they do the job that nobody else wants to do, and they do it for very little money.

No, I don't consider enemies of the country to be criminals. Their acts against the United states (or anywhere else) should be considered acts of war. Criminals deserve a fair trail in a public court. Those who are enemies or combatants against this country should not be tried in a court system. The military should deal with them. I would treat them the same as a non uniformed soldier, treat them as spies.

Those people are at war with us and should be treated accordingly.

I see. And what, exactly, defines the difference between a crime and an act of war? That's a very slippery slope. You could argue that speeding is an act against the United States because it endangers our citizens.

I hear the most stunning statements on this board that seem to support the conversion of the U.S. to a totalitarian regime where the Bill of Rights has no meaning. And often it's out of the most vehement flag-wavers.

It is a tragedy if the dog was killed in the line of duty.

If the investigation was rightful, then the guy should be punished.

If the investigation was not legitimate, then the FBI should be punished for harassing people and getting their own dog killed. The police are not always right.

Police dogs are having a harder time and many are getting stabbed. The bad guys have figured out to wrap two shin guards around thier forearm and if they get chased by a dog they stop and turn to the dog holding out the arm. And just like in the training videos the dog jumps up and clamps on to the arm. Then the dog gets it's throat cut and the bad guy gets away.

Well, it does. Equal protection under the law, 14th Amendment. Otherwise, what's the point?
