Noted & Signed! This is an outrage. This man should have been charged with attacking a fellow officer and animal cruelty! He should have been terminated and required to serve jail time. Instead they reward him by reinstating him and compensating's incredulous and so unethical! What is wrong with these judges? What level is their moral reasoning at and where are there ethics! This man clearly exhibited animal abuse and that he doesn't have the correct temperament to be a police officer. He is a walking time bomb and the next time he goes off it could end up in a fatal tragedy. Shame on these judges and their inability to be objective about this situation. It's too bad that they can't be terminated, too, for by their decision in this matter, it's as if they are also complicit in this crime!

And when will he graduate from abusing Animals, to abusing Human?

This is ridiculous why would they reverse their decision then hand him 5 years of back pay, he should be severly punished for what he did, this is the kind of person that no law enforcement acency needs in their ranks, he is just a nasty person.

Oh My!!!! I have Wet eyes and am shaking from dispair, can't swallow and am thinking $!$ the #!#!!! Hung for not releasing a flipping toy??? K=9's give their lives up for their partners and this Jack Leg had no compassion, no Brain, (probably in his Arsh) for this K-9 that probably risked his life for this #!#! Tons of times.

Great comments all, sadly I did not watch the video the part in the explanation was enough to reduce me to tears. RIP dear one and I certainly do hope that if this POS gets his job back he has to go into the woods and get mauled by a Mad dog, Wolf, Bear I don't flipping care, wipe out his vocal cords, but make sure he is still alive to suffer and just can't calll for help...while he is lying there in pain, may some fire ants find him and start at his feet and work their way up to his filthy EYEBALLS and consume them! Then, he can still lay there for a few days to ROT until he goes directly to HELL! Justice, there is no Justice for our creatures, but I wish this POS was around here, I would absolutly find a way to get a crew together and take this #!#! Hole for a ride up to the back Mountains where it is very private and before I left I would let him know this is for your Partner "RICOH", ummm at time I would probably take out my tire iron and wipe out his knees as well!
Typing what i would do really did help me feel somewhat better, one could only Hope! On another note, yes Kathy, call will be made tomorrow to the Governor! Also, I am planning to write one of my politicans and ask if he knows anyone back there in power besides the Governor to make sure this POS can't be any type of job except for separating the garbage in the landfill or maybe walking around all day making sure that the S##T level isn't to high in some FARM! Did sign and forward the petition and sadly, #6,670 out of the needed 10,000...we need 20,000 so we can BANG the OFFICIALS OVER THE HEAD WITH WHAT FEELS LIKE A BRICK and dump another copy of all of the signatures on the Appeals Judge's desk (what a crack pot that person is) Are these people from the area that "DELIVERANCE" the Movie was made???

I'm always wary of signing petitions unless verified. I found "Jones' conduct, "while appearing excessive and extreme to the general public, is not unreasonably outside of or substantially different from several of the training techniques that are tested, trained and approved for use by the patrol," Hardin wrote....Hardin said the Highway Patrol's dog training methods included whipping dogs, hitting them wit sticks, and using choke collars and stun guns." They should all be fired.

With such uncontrollable anger this Jones guy should be locked away in a Psych Ward not reinstated to the police department as well as the "panel" of idiots that decided that what he did was okay. I hope the good people of North Carolina create a huge protest over this. If they don't it says something about the state of North Carolina in general. Jones is probably jealous because he does not have half the I.Q. this beautiful animal had.

What a dirt bag! Apparently Southern states aren't big on enforcing animal abuse laws. Giving this jerk back pay after a temporary suspension is more of a reward than a punishment. It's like giving him a paid vacation and making the tax payers foot the bill. He killed his partner. Case closed. He should have gone to jail, not been rewarded for a job well done.

This man did not just kill a dog, by torturing it--he killed his partner. Why would anyone want him back--who would be dumb enough to want to be his partner?
Jones shouldn't be able to ever walk the streets in freedom--he killed a police officer, due to his uncontrollable (obviously) temper, and sick disposition! I wouldn't want that nutcase to "serve and protect" me@!

This guy should get his ass kicked. He is an insult and embarrassment to all Law Enforcement Agencies with Dogs, and those that made the decision to reinstate him are idiots. This guy is not a Cop, he is a walking small penis. Also these dogs are owned by the City, not the Police Officer so why s he not being charged with Animal Cruelty, and assaulting an Officer. Most states acknowledge that Police Dogs are police Officers and have their own badge. I dont know what backward state this happened in, but that is assault on a Police Officer and Animal Cruelty, what a sham.
