SDL Police K9 officer shoots his partner
I do not believe for one second this was intentional. It was an accident. But it was an accident that should never have happened and "Oops" with a 72hour vacation isn't going to make it better.
If he could shoot his dog he could have done the same to a person. No excuse for a negligent discharge like this. In fact, it bears striking resemblance to another shooting.
Would you trust this guy for a partner? Would you want him to back you up in a tense situation where you are going to be downstream of his muzzle? I don't want someone careless as this in my same zipcode.
He should not leading any team and he should not be allowed to carry a gun.
