Robbery Suspect Kills Pursuing Police K9

Associated Press

December 01, 2010

GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Authorities in New Jersey say a robbery suspect killed a police dog by throwing it into traffic.

Gloucester Township police say the 3 1/2-year-old German shepherd named Schultz was trying to apprehend the man around 7:15 p.m. Tuesday. Police say the man grabbed the animal and tossed him onto the busy roadway, where it was struck. The suspect ran off.

Police Chief Harry Earle says the man was one of two people suspected of robbing a local restaurant. Both men remained at large Wednesday.

Further details on the encounter and the search were expected to be announced at a news conference Wednesday afternoon.

    He has crossed the Rainbow Bridge along with the hundreds of other selfless K9s who gave their life for their partners. My prayers are for Schultz and the other K9s and to the handlers of each and every one of them.

    We had a similar deal here in SWFL a couple of months ago. Bad guy killed our K-9 but got his own ticket punched. Still not an even trade-off . Prayers for Schultz, his human partner and the GTPD.

    Bump rhood. Thanks to keeneagle for the post about the Rainbow Bridge, also. Glad the suspects were caught; too bad they weren't physically caught by the remaining 2 K-9 units from Gloucester Township P. D. R.I.P. Schultz; all dogs go to heaven.

    Sending big prayers to Schultz' handler and the Officers at Gloucester Township. As a former K-9, I know how unique and sacred the bond is between a handler and man's best friend ... I cannot imagine experiencing losing my partner this way. I hope you find this bastard quickly and he gets everything he deserves. RIP Schultz ...

    When he is caught I say he gets thrown into traffic. Hit by a slow moving car. Pick him up and do it again. Rinse and repeat until natural selection kicks in.
