A Florida police K-9 handler was shot three times in an ambush from a 23-year-old Florida man Zion Bostick. Moments later, Pinellas County Sheriff’s Department Cpl. Aitken’s dog “Taco” took a big bite out of crime and out of Bostick. What’s more, Taco’s sergeant then dispensed some ballistic therapy to the ex-convict and would-be cop killer, truncating the killer’s career and saving Florida taxpayers a whole lot of additional money to house a career thug for additional time in prison.
Even better, Police Activity has video of the incident.
And here’s the press conference.
Here’s the local Fox affiliate’s story.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – A Pinellas County deputy – who the sheriff described as an experienced law enforcement officer with grit – had surgery Monday morning after he was shot in the neck, hand, and leg while responding to a vehicle burglary report. Officials said the suspect was “waiting” for deputies before firing at them.
