Man who fatally shot Ohio police dog gets 45 years behind bars

A dog? A fucking dog? Yeah they care more for their animals than POC…

A man has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting an Ohio police dog after robbing a grocery store and has been sentenced to 45 years behind bars.

The Canton Repository reports 23-year-old Kelontre Barefield entered the pleas Wednesday to charges relating to the Canton K-9 named Jethro’s death and counts stemming from earlier burglaries and an aggravated robbery.

Stark County Common Pleas Judge Kristin Farmer called Barefield’s actions “intolerable” as she delivered a sentence that covered both cases.

Authorities say Barefield shot the 3-year-old German shepherd three times during a January confrontation. The dog died the next day. Jethro’s police handler shot Barefield in the leg.

Farmer says the sentence reflects the seriousness of Jethro’s death and the terror inflicted on victims of the burglaries and aggravated robbery.
