I am writing to you in regard to Canine Officer Rocco, who unselfishly paid the ultimate price (“Police Dog Dies From Stabbing,” Jan. 31).
I feel that John Rush also should pay the ultimate price. He should be tried and, if convicted, sentenced the same as he would be for killing any officer. At the very least, he should be jailed for the rest of his life.
Just because this officer walked on four legs instead of two doesn’t make what happened to him any less of a crime.
