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.

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.

  1. I have always loved and respected German Shepherd dogs, maybe from watching “Rin Tin Tin” and “Bullit”, Roy Rogers’ dog, while growing up. Also, my first dog as an adult was a beautiful Shepherd/Husky mix that was very loyal and protective, it really saddened me when he died, luckily from old age at about 13 years old, relieved I didn’t have to “put him down”.
    Shepherds are naturally protective and loyal to their owners/handlers, but don’t get on their “bad side”, they will take care of business.

  2. Buy that dog a big ass steak. I had relatives that lived in Pinellas County twenty or thirty years ago. What a beautiful place. Either its gone downhill or they and we (my wife and I when we would visit) didn’t see any crime to speak of.
