Man killed after shooting police dog

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- Los Angeles police allegedly shot and killed a gang member after he killed a police dog that had been ordered to subdue him, The Los Angeles Times reports.

Ranger, a 4-year-old Belgian Malinois was attempting to subdue the suspected gang member who had allegedly fired on Long Beach officers hours earlier, the report said.

The report said Officer Mike Parcells, ordered the dog to subdue the man who was hiding underneath a porch. Ranger died from a gunshot to the chest.

The suspect, Agustin Murguia Jr., had allegedly fired a single shot, and SWAT officers responded with a volley. The 22-year-old parolee was dead when officers reached him, the report said.

"The last thing you tell your dog is to go do its job, and he gets killed for doing it," said a former K-9 officer. Parcells had purchased Ranger with his own money from a breeder in Holland two years ago.

Murguia had been convicted of robbery and assault with a deadly weapon and was facing a third strike, police said.



The ONLY good thing to come out of this article is that the shitstain gangbanger is dead and more people will come to mourn the dog than him.

They shoot our dogs, we shoot theirs. What's the big deal? It's called evening out the playing field.

DAYUM, that's cold. What gang do you belong to?

In many states if you kill a police dog, you might as well have killed a police officer.

He would have done a good amount of time for killing the dog if ha had not been shot himself

True, but those dogs are "their" dogs... just like your pet. Theirs are trained to do things and what they do is a game. So long as the dog is entertained and rewarded, he serves. As far as the dog is concerned, taking a bad guy down is like catching a frisbee.

I feel awful for his handler... poor guy.
