A 22-year-old Muslim man, John Rush, who stabbed a police K-9 dog for no reason. He murdered an animal and the judge who saw his case threw the hammer down.
The judge gave the dog murdering Muslim between 17 and 44 years. That is a huge difference from one end to the other, but this man has other violent charges added on to dog killing.
Conservative Post – The charges included the murder of a K9 police dog. The ruling follows 11 additional assault charges Rush faced last December, including 4 aggravated assault charges against police officers.
When Officer Phil Lerza, the policeman who cared for Rocco, heard of the harsh sentence, he was happy with the court’s decision.
“I lost my partner from this, and he was also a family member,” Lerza said in a statement. Lerza was also stabbed in the shoulder during the incident.
Now, Rush is facing a sentence for each victim—which means 3.5 to 7 years for killing Rocco, 2 to 7.5 years for stabbing Lerza, and 2.5 to 7 years for attempting to disarm a police officer.
There’s no reason for this.
Don’t hurt a person or animal for no reason. Nothing good comes of that. It is a terrible thing to do and now look – the guy is in jail for hurting a dog. Was it worth it?
