Toronto police dog Rambo is being credited with arresting two of four teens who threatened to kill an undercover officer in a sting operation.Of course, under the Liberals "catch and release" programme, they'll be back on the street tomorrow.
Two of the suspects were described by police as being members of the Five Point Generals, the same gang whose members are allegedly involved in the separate slayings of Ephraim Brown, 11, at a July 22 birthday party, and the 2005 Boxing Day shootout that claimed the life of 15-year-old Jane Creba.
One suspect spoke with the undercover officer and then turned to his cronies and told them to "shoot him," Adamson said.
The officer was vulnerable, without body armour or his service revolver, and police watching the undercover sting moved in quickly with Rambo leading the charge.
Four teens, two aged 14 and two aged 15, are charged with robbery, threatening death and resisting arrest.
