Extreme Sadness

The Plymouth Township Police Department lost an officer today after being called in as back-up for a Lower Gwynedd bank robbery.

K9 officer, Louis Layfield, lost his canine partner, Andy, in a shootout at a Lower Gwynedd branch of Abington Bank. Officer Layfield was also hit in the vest and is reported to be ok.

Please keep Officer Layfield and Andy in your prayers tonight.

And here is the rest of it.

Bill, this is a very sad and tragic story. K-9's are just as much officers as egular police.

The Herald has two articles posted on this. While the articles themselves are straightforward reporting (the excellent Keith Phucas), it's the comments that will absoultely nauseate you:

The comments at this article are even worse:

I have no words to express my level of disgust.
