When a citizen kills a police K9, he is charged with killing a police K9. Killing a law enforcement canine is a third-degree felony charge that carries a prison sentence of up to five years.
When a cop does it, he is charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty.

Though I very much agree that it sends a pretty bad message (and precedent).
