I'm fed up with cops being treated as if their above the law. Charges need to be brought against this officer and be made an example of. Showing that no one is above the law!!!!!

I think the officer should be suspended for a good length of time without pay, and volunteer in an animal shelter while off dutyand then put in a sauna for as long as this poor dog was in the car and let him know how it must have felt, what a waste of a beautiful animal he should be so ashamed of himself.

What the hell? 3 day unpaid suspension? That is BULLCRAP! That poor dog died due to negligence (and stupidity) on the part of the police officer, according to what I am reading, and therefore this officer should be punished the SAME as any civilian would and that means going to court and whatever the law allows for punishment (which, in my opinion is NEVER enough)! Poor Harley! May he R.I.P.

Thanks for your signature. It amazes me that I can't get more and that some people think what happened is "O.K." and that I should be more forgiving. Hopefully you can help us by passing this on to your friends for their signature. You're a blessing. Thank you.

Police officer should be held at higher standard. If civilian will get court time, why only 3 days unpaid suspension for policeman? It doesn't even cover the cost of the dog. This is animal cruelty, treat it as a such! SHAME ON DES MOINES PD!

yeah thanx for proving my point jackass CAUSE HE WAS A POLICE DOG PERIOD so im suspose to have more compassion whatever. so lets see if the cop is charged with a felony for battery on a leo as he should be cause if it was u or i we would be. but because he is a cop he will recive better treatment then the average citizen. thats the point u jackass

"There is insufficient evidence to establish any criminal intent." Because it was unintentional they do not see it as a "crime". Okay, then how about a dereliction of duty and administrative action instead of criminal prosecution?

I hear what your saying and thought the same but the law doesn't read that way. It is at least a serious misdemeanor as codified in chapter 717B, section 3 of the Iowa Code: "A person who impounds or confines, in any place, an animal is guilty of animal neglect, if the person ... Kills an animal by any means which causes unjustified pain, distress or suffering."

So I take the "confines in ANY place" as animal neglect if the animal is killed by the act. I see it as altogether horrible. ...

Thank you for the quotation of the Iowa code and I agree that it appears to apply to this case. Has anyone responded to Mr Nobles with that information and asked why the officer is not being charged under that code? Will it help if I email him to ask? I live in SC and he may think I have no right to question his decision and inaction, but I will do so if you think it might help.
