Slain police dog honored: Paris Raid Police Dog

Slain police dog honored: Paris Raid Police Dog, People around the world are sending messages of support for a police dog that was killed during an early morning police raid in a Paris suburb that left two alleged suspects dead.

The hashtag #JeSuisChien (I Am Dog) was the top trending topic in France at 9 a.m. Toronto time, with people sharing messages of solidarity with Diesel, the dog.

The 7-year-old German shepherd was part of the French RAID police unit and was killed when police stormed an apartment in Saint-Denis believed to belong to suspects behind the deadly Paris attacks last week.

Over 40,000 tweets have used the hashtag since Tuesday.

But not everyone thought the hashtag was appropriate.

“I can’t believe people (are) really using #JeSuisChien and don’t even think about the (Syrians’ lives) destroyed by the French bombs. I’m speechless,” one Twitter user commented.

“You’re going too far now with #JeSuisChien,” another said.
