FBI dog killed in raid will be memorialized

freddyFreddy, a Belgian Malinois killed in the line of duty in Michigan Wednesday, will have his name added to a memorial wall at FBI headquarters in Quantico, Va., the agency said Thursday.

Freddy was killed by gunfire at a Dearborn warehouse during a raid on members of a group the FBI described as a radical, violent and separatist black Muslim group.

Killed in the raid was Luqman Ameen Adbullah, the imam of the Masjid Al-Haqq mosque in Detroit and the alleged leader of the group, according to the Detroit News.

The FBI said in a news release that Freddy’s body will be returned to¬†Quantico, where the dog was based.

“Freddy was born on Feb. 17, 2007 and entered on duty with the FBI on Sept. 8, 2008,” the FBI said in a statement. “In the line of duty, Freddy gave his life for his team. He will be missed by his FBI family.”

Donations to the K-9 Law Enforcement Memorial can be sent to the FBI Agents Association, Attn: K-9 Fund Freddy, P.O. Box 12650, Arlington, VA 22219.

Sad. Terrible consequences of being a working dog. To memorialize Freddy is only fitting. RIP Good Dog.

We love you, Freddy. There is a really good book of stories similar to this called Paws to Protect: Dogs Saving Lives and Restoring Hope. One dog was on Saddam’s police force. Americans needed a guard dog so local people captured the dog and gave it to them. He loved the Americans and protected them so well they took him home with them!
