He should be fired. Not imprisoned, not "hung up". Fired. Because he obviously cannot do his job properly with the hours he is being forced to work.

For the record, I'm a huge animal lover AND a huge supporter of law enforcement. But right is right.
Note that you said "forced to work". If he was forced to work, then that might be the problem and the responsibility.

I bet that anyone on this forum can be forced to work so much that they can no longer function properly and exercise good judgement.

"Forced" is they key point here, not voluntary, not regularly scheduled but "forced" as in not having a choice.

Actually, I said that sarcastically. I can guarantee that he was not "forced" to work anything. He might have had to work a few extra hours, but that's part of the job.

Or one dead person and 2 live dogs. Depending on when the officer got back
They were bloodhounds, not the ubiquitous German shepherds. Bloodhounds are terrific smellers but lousy guard dogs. Maybe you are right, but our bloodhounds were very friendly and laid back, and the breeder said that was typical for the breed. If anyone broke into our house, tthe boy dog might have licked the intruder to death, and the girl dog probably wouldn't even have woken up.

Even shepherds in my opinion wouldn't have attacked if they already were feeling the effects of the heat. Dogs IMO know when someone is trying to help them.
