Cops hold down helpless dog and slash her throat




It began when Nala, a small 7-yr-old shar-pei became missing on Saturday from her home.

It turns out that Nala had gotten out of the house accidentally, and a neighbor captured her.

The neighbor who was keeping Nala took care of her but remarked that Nala was frightened and didn’t know wheres she was. The neighbor said that Nala just wanted to go home, and that it became difficult to feed her because she was so scared. Because Nala was scared, she began snapping at the neighbor, and that’s when the neighbor called animal control.

“It’s not Nala’s fault,” said the neighbor. She was simply scared because she was in an unfamiliar place and she snapped from the fear.

The neighbor suffered no serious injuries and believed that Nala would be safe once she was held by animal control.

Shortly after the call to animal control, police officers showed up to the home and used a restraining pole to squeeze Nala’s neck.

It’s when they got Nala alone and completely restrained that the unthinkable happened.

Officer Jeffrey Bolger was looking at Nala, and at one point was heard saying, “I’m going to gut this fucking thing,” according to reports.

Moments later, Officer Bolger pulled out a knife.

The above is extremely hard for me to even read. I follow all of the dog murders by these monsters but that doggie looks EXACTLY like a Shar-Pei I had who was the love of my life. Had anyone done that to my baby I would have made it my mission to kill him.

This shit goes on every fucking day (it's not humans they're murdering) but never gets national attention. This is another atrocity that cops commit with impunity, destroying innocent lives and ruining the lives of the people who loved these dogs.

Both he and a second officer, Thomas Schmidt, have been suspended in connection with the killing.

Baltimore Police Deputy Commissioner Dean Palmere called the the incident an "outrageous and an unacceptable breach of our protocol."

That you were too lazy to read it is your problem.

I'm "stirring up hate"? What are you, some cop apologist? You think maybe the actions of psychotic sadists might be stirring up hate rather then the decent people calling out these atrocities?

FFS.

This is ANOTHER dog murder by psychotic cops and the only one I've ever heard of where charges for animal cruelty (not enough!) have been brought. The thread is about psycho cops killing helpless dogs, not the unusual charging in this case. If I wanted to do a thread about that I would have titled it, "Cops charged for killing helpless dog" but I wanted to focus on cops SLASHING AN INNOCENT DOG'S THROAT. I want o emphasize that we live in a fascist police state where cops do this shit on a routine basis, taking the lives of dogs and destroying the lives of the people who loved them.

Do you need someone to hold your hand to cross the street as well?

Forcing folk to read an article to get the vital facts you have linked to and summarized without mentioning one rather very vital fact in your summary is not lazy, I apologize.

It is purposely deceptive. We are all adults and all know why. Why would I read a deceptive post, you can if you want, free country?

Space enough in the summary for a Nazi reference.....

"You could hear the dog screaming and crying in pain," she said. "I did see one officer that had been extremely aggressive that did have his knee into her chest that was tightening the noose. It seemed (they were doing it) relentlessly and unnecessarily."



I'm pretty sure that police departments, when they do psych testing, pre hiring, are selecting for psychos.

While these guys are suspended (with pay?) and charged with animal cruelty (not enough!), most dog murderers (like most human murdering cops) are never punished.

But they still need to be convicted. It's also sad that the minimum sentence is 3 years.

And if something DOES happen, it is everyone and everything else that is at fault! And of course that is true...because cops are perfect and never commit crimes themselves!

27. Defense claims dog was dead prior to officer slitting throat
Mon Dec 22, 2014, 12:40 AM
Dec 2014

A motion filed by a Baltimore police officer accused of slicing a dog's throat claims city prosecutors lost key evidence in the case, and that the dog involved had died before the officer wielded his knife.

snip

The defense motion to dismiss said two non-law enforcement witnesses will testify that the dog was lifeless for approximately five minutes while on the dog pole. Two law enforcement witnesses will testify the dog appeared to have strangulated itself prior to the dog pole being removed.

Court papers indicate that Dr. David fowler, Maryland's chief medical examiner, will testify that the dog’s heart had stopped beating at the time of the incision and that the animal did not die from blood loss.

The motion also explains: If the dog appeared lifeless, why did Bolger slit its throat?

http://www.wbaltv.com/news/jeffrey-bolgers-defense-motions-to-dismiss-case/30205388

The defense is the dog suicided himself.

The medical examiner? You've gotta be kidding. You see how they have a network of corrupt sociopaths that always come to the aid of and cover for these sick fuck cops?

Beautiful, sweet little girl. Helpless and butchered by these fucking killers. I pray they meet the same fate.
