A recent bill in the NJ assembly addresses the issue of extending punishment to anyone who deliberately kills a police dog. The fine would be larger as well, up to 15,000 dollars.
This was in response to a police dog who caught up with a criminal who shot the dog and threw its body on the highway. The killer got off too easily and is probably back out on the street like scum.
I say lock such criminals up indefinitely, fine them way more money and even consider administering a harsher punishment, something that will give them something to think about and experience serious pain. No one who harms an animal should be allowed to get off easily.
