    Let’s wait for the investigation to complete. Police dogs should not be compared to the every day dog that majority of the time has no professional training. Did the handler give a command? was the dog acting weird? PTSD? Let wait for the rest of the story.

    You’re right police dogs should be held to a much higher standard considering the tax dollars going into training them to not act like this.
