Kathleen GambleK9 Recons did a wonderful job. Not only did he save his partners life, he apprehended the bad guy without harm to himself. Thank God both Officers are safe and another thug is off the street. I am sure, someone, somewhere will be complaining that the dog was racial profiling when he was attacked. They'll probably ask for K9 Recons job. That's how ridiculous people are getting. I think I'll start my own march.K9's, EMS, and LEO's lives matter! 💙8 · 6 hours ago

Christine Morris BrownI'm thinking that maybe these people who are trying to kill these police officers should have a hard day's labor cleaning up the mess handsome Recons is sitting in.

Gerry M HillzYou know, I just bet every one of these officers cringe when stories of OTHER cops doing things like that one in Oklahoma who shot the 5-year-old kid's dog in a fenced backyard, claiming the dog tried to bite him through the gate. Which was locked AND wired shut. With an assault type rifle. You just KNOW these trained K9 officers hate to see their honorable professional image besmirched by a thug like that.
I'd love to see that thug even try to take a stand against just one of these true heroes of law enforcement, AND their K9 partner. He wouldn't stand a chance.3 days ago
