Man Sentenced for Killing a Police Dog

Police dog's killer gets a life term: Conviction was man's third strike

Unable to argue the sentence, Barrar expressed hope the case will get people to think about how poorly society deals with the mentally ill.

The basic problem here is that we as a society don't want to lock up the mentally ill indefinately. This is a sad Dog News story where no one wins in the end. We'd have to lock up many mentally ill people who may never be violent to make sure we get the ones who will be. In letting many mentally ill people free in society, some will inevitably hurt themselves and others.
