Another sad report, this one hitting close to home after a 17-year-old Delaware teenager was leading police on a chase in Kentucky and slammed into a police car stopped on the side of the road, killing the officer and the K9, King, inside. The teens in the car ran after stealing appr $40 worth of gas. I asked our local news to pick up on this and try to get more details.
The earlier K9 death was in Coronado, CA, when another chase stopped on a bridge and a drunk driver picked up the GSD and jumped over the rail, killing the dog. All officers were uninjured in this incident. There is speculation, which I have not confirmed, that the dog, Stryker, broke the fall impact and save the life of the drunk. The drunk in question apparently had also put many lives at risk before police were involved and might have gone on to kill someone had things not culminated on the bridge.
