@Joanne25xx  Raise your IQ. If he'd had equal opportunity in society, he most likely wouldn't have been committing crimes in the first place.

"Ignorance is not a virtue," President Obama recently said, I agree.

He got 34 years for killing the dog, and 11 years for burglary and weapon charges. It must be noted that in every jurisdiction the penalty for killing a police canine is the same as the penalty for killing an officer. A canine is an officer,technically.

Thanks for at least adding robbery & killing the police dog, many bloggers/vloggers are leaving out his other charges "saying he received 45 yrs for the killing of the dog alone .

45 yrs is inhumane for the crime that was committed.
