Police dog killed in action is draped in New Zealand flag at memorial service

A police dog which was killed in action was draped in the New Zealand flag at its memorial service.

Gazza, a four-year-old German Shepherd, was shot during a siege in Porirua on the North Island last Friday.

The police dog was killed by a man called Pita Tekira, a former prisoner who'd been on the run after throwing away a bracelet being used to monitor him while he was on bail.

How very sad for his colleagues who knew and loved him. He must have had a wonderful character and I only hope it is instilled in his nephews and nieces to follow him. God rest his lovely soul. RIP Gazza run free at the Bridge.

Rightly so, he was an officer who died in the line of duty.

That is only right, as has been said, he was an officer regardless of species, i know in america if you harm a police dog you get done with assaulting a police officer and i firmly beleive that is correct too
