Dog Killing a police dog = killing a cop

Comment: I have heard that if someone kills a police dog they can be
charged with killing an police office because dogs on a K9 unit
technically hold the rank of officer. I found one link to a guy being
sentenced to life in jail for it but that seems to be more due to the
three strikes law than the other issue. I'm assuming this is an urban
legend but I've heard this from a couple of people so I think it is a
pretty widespread.
