The Officer Down Memorial Page site https://www.odmp.org/ has the noble purpose of memorializing police officers who die on the job.
There is no doubt anybody, from any profession, leaves behind people who want them remembered. But imagine if the memorial site for any other profession focused on the following without even considering accountability and solutions.

K9 officers kill many dogs every year by forgetting about them in hot cars. The dogs die painfully and there is almost never any criminal responsibility put on the cop.

One K9 Officer, while in a steroid induced 'roid rage' attacked his K9.

Is it harmless to let cops inject themselves with steroids?
