    Sargeant Dick; Police Sgt fired for abusing his police dog

    What an asshole!



    North Carolina:This cell phone video (Made public April 28/08) being used as evidence in a hearing where Sgt. Charles L. Jones is contesting his firing after being accused of mistreating his police dog.

    RALEIGH -- A fired state trooper is fighting to get his job back.

    The Highway Patrol fired K9 officer Charles Jones last September after another trooper recorded a video of Jones repeatedly kicking his patrol dog. Monday, Jones had an administrative hearing, trying to get his job back.

    In a cell phone video, Jones can be seen hanging his police dog Ricoh from a loading dock, with the animal's back paws barely touching the ground. The trained handler then kicks Ricoh five times as the dog's legs swing off the ground.

    A fellow K9 officer saw these actions at the Highway Patrol's training academy and captured the images.

    "I didn't know what to do. Should I go stop him? What do I do? I did what I thought was right at the time," said Trooper Ray Herndon.

    Jones was fired after the video was shown to the Highway Patrol. Jones said he was simply training Ricoh to obey vital commands. The patrol's director of internal affairs agreed. But the secretary of crime control and public safety -- who oversees the Patrol -- says once the governor's office heard of the video and saw it, they made it clear they wanted Jones fired.

    "All of them made me aware the governor believed that Sgt. Jones should be dismissed based on what he knew of the treatment of Ricoh," said Bryan Beatty.

    Ricoh was not injured. He has since been retired from service.

    Retired nothing! Fired he was and rightfully so. That is no way to treat an animal. Police dogs are considered police officers. Would he do that to another human officer? I think not. At least not withought getting his ass kicked.

    Well they retired the dog, so retire the officer too. Fire, retire, whatever it takes to get rid of the jerk.

    Bad cops are always creepy. You just never know who thinks they can bend the rules, or thinks they are above the rules. Scary actually. They ruin it for the rest of the officers who are really honest and upstanding. (do their jobs)

    What possible vital command is taught to a dog by hanging it with it's feet barely on the ground and kicking it?

    Let's see if they can teach Mr. Jones the same command.

    I know what it was, it was all the testosterone the Trooper was taking that caused him to be so angry. I think they are required to take it!

    I think all service dogs are noble. K9 dogs are "partners" of their human officers. As someone else said, would he get away with doing that to a human partner? After all that training, this is what that K9 ends up with?
