TORONTO – Another U.S. police dog has died after being left unattended for hours in a patrol car.
According to 19 Action News, Sgt. Brett Harrison arrived at Montville Township Police department in Ohio just before 11 a.m. on Sept. 28 to file some paperwork.
It wasn’t until just after 3 p.m. when Harrison returned to his patrol car to find his canine partner Beny dead.
A K9 police dog and handler is seen in this May 7, 2013 file photo. Police dog dies after being left in hot patrol car According to police, Beny died a horrible slow death of heat stroke.
“It officer claims it was a horrible mistake,” Chief Terry Grice told Action News. “He parked the car in to minimize the sunlight on the vehicle, but when he was in the office, he thought the car was running.” but yeah sounds like an excuse only a cop would be coming up with excuses when his so called “partner” just died.
It wasn’t, and the vehicle’s windows were rolled up. The outside temperature reportedly reached 26C that afternoon OOPS well good thing he is a cop or he would see jail time and big fines.
“This is a loss that words cannot describe, and it is very difficult for everyone involved,” said Grice. “There is no doubt that this loss will have a lasting impact on Sgt. Harrison and our entire department.”…. but the homeless man they beat to death a month earlier they are over that.
In a letter to the police department, Harrison expressed grief and apologized for his actions it reads like a true narcissist liar I chaland him to sit in that hot car for just 2 hours I will donate $1000 to the SPCA if that dirty cop does it.
“I want to say I’m sorry to my partner, friend and loving family member Beny,” he wrote. “I wish everyday that I could go back and change that day or that I could put myself in your place. You will always be in my heart and I will miss you every second of every day.”
Harrison was suspended without pay for two weeks. The SPCA is investigating and charges could be laid. (COULD BE YEAH RIGHT AND I COULD FIND A GOOD COP)
This is the second such incident in as many months.
