    Welcome to NY State. It was just a few years ago it became a misdemeanor if you fled from the Police. Before that it wasn't a crime. I'm hoping this will stop the people complainingf that they sent in a dog unprotected. Probably not but hopefully. People weren't and aren't getting it that it could have been a human LEO. He had already killed 4 people, one was a retired corrections officer and another was still on the job as a corrections officer. Ape died saving lives of the LEOs behind him. I have spoke with the FBI and they are grieving the loss of their coworker, for that was what Ape was, a coworker. If anything good came out of this event is that there are many fundraisers to provide vests for other local Police K9s. RIP Ape, you will be missed.

    A misdemeanor for killing a K-9, wow...if it was not for Ape the officers could have been shot.
