    Lee, I am from the Locust Grove GA area (next county over). It is extremely sad. We, here in Georgia, support our law enforcement. Both 2 legs and 4 legs. On March 3, 2018, a non-profit here in our GA community will be holding a memorial service for all working LE K-9s in the US who have had an EOW in 2017. Georgia citizens are also contributing to a college fund to the fallen Locust Grove officer. If others want to contribute I can provide the link if you wish.
