Police Officer Accused of Killing K-9 Partner
Officer On Trial For Killing His Own Police Dog
MIAMI (CBS4) ― A Miami-Dade Police officer is scheduled to go on trial Monday accused of killing his own K-9 partner.
Sgt. Allen Cockfield faces charges stemming from a June 7th incident during a K-9 training exercise in which he allegedly kicked his Belgian Malinois police dog, "Duke", numerous times, and then shook the animal.
Cockfield reportedly beat the dog into unconsciousness; the animal later died.
A necropsy revealed the dog died of a medical complication as a result of being kicked.
If Cockfield is convicted, the animal rights organization PETA has asked prosecutors to ban Cockfield from any personal or professional contact with animals, to seize any animals currently in his custody and to require him to undergo thorough psychological evaluations followed by mandatory counseling.
Cockfield was relieved of duty without pay after being charged with animal cruelty and killing a police dog which is a third degree felony.
Doug Hartman, the officer's attorney, called the charges a travesty.
"I've never seen a case like this. He is one of the best dog handlers in the department,'' Hartman told our news partners at the Miami Herald back in June.
Hartman said that his client is an animal lover and that the dog was uncontrollable, causing Cockfield to take corrective action. (© MMVII, CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved.)
Cockfield posted $6,000 bond to get out of jail. CBS

We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

I would like to take this time to thank this ass nut for blackening our eye a little more.

I think I'll wait to hear more of the story.
Sad to lose a good dog.I'm your huckleberry...
You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.
I was looking for a saint who was a devil of a lover,
but every girl I found was either one way or the other...

Probably means he was cleared. The press would never print the good but will flood us with bad. I hope it wasn't true.

According to this, it was postponed till Dec. 17th. It's got a few more details, but I don't know how accurate they are.
Another site, perhaps more reputable. http://www.local10.com/news/14188550/detail.html
