A Modest Proposal for an Addendum to "Tanja's Law"

It's a Georgia law that, as originally proposed, would have allowed for a charge of second-degree murder for killing a working police dog. The state senate toned it down a bit. Now killing a police dog is "only" punishable by imprisonment for up to five years and a fine of up to $20,000.

Well, OK, then. But if they're going to go that way, how about an addendum/amendment providing for precisely the same penalties for working police officers who kill non-police dogs?
