WATCH: Minnesota Cop’s K-9 Attacks Innocent Woman Taking out Trash; Now She’s Suing

Friday, December 8th, 2017

A Minnesota cop’s K-9 attacked an innocent woman as she was taking out her trash in September.
And now she’s suing.
St. Paul cop Thaddeus P. Schmidt failed to maintain control of his police dog that mauled her arm for more than 30 seconds after grabbing her and knocking her to the ground.
“You’re fine,” one officer can be heard telling the woman as he grabs her hand, pulling her away from the dog.
But that only appears to cause her more pain, since the dog’s bite is locked onto her arm pulling her in the opposite direction.
Another officer shouts commands at the

Animal Control Officer Outraged after New Jersey Cop Shot his Dog

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

An animal control officer is fuming after a New Jersey cop shot his dog.
John Timmins, who’s been an animal control officer in Bergen County for 17 years, said he’s never ordered a police officer to shoot an animal.
After his dog “Wildfire,” a four-year-old American Bulldog, was shot by Passaic cop Samuel Rivera Jr. on September 23, he wonders why there wasn’t more empathy for his dog after she escaped from his fenced-in backyard.
Rivera, the son of a former cop who went to federal prison for extortion as mayor, responded to a call about a dog chasing “innocent people in the

A Maryland jury awarded a family $1.26 million Tuesday after deciding a cop wrongly shot and killed their dog, Vernon, on February 1, 2014 – the largest award in American history for such a case.
“The verdict sends a strong message to the police about community expectations,” attorney Carl J. Hansel said after the verdict, according to the Capital Gazette.
“The duty to serve and protect extends to our animal family members as well.”
However, the Anne Arundel County Police Department had already determined the shooting was justified, claiming the dog was aggressive, which made the cop fear for his safety.
But the

Wisconsin Deputy Slams 15 Shots of Vodka, Steals Man’s Sweatshirt, Passes Out in Patrol Car, Blames Bartender

Friday, January 20th, 2017
How many shots does it take for a cop to pass out in their patrol vehicle while in uniform and on-duty as a police dog helplessly sits in the backseat?
It took 15 shots of vodka for a Wisconsin deputy to do just that.
St. Croix County Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Fowler ended up having a .23 blood alcohol content – nearly three times the legal limit.
In fact, Fowler still had the squad car in drive with his foot on the brake when responding officers found him passed out from his drunken stupor.
But he later blamed the bartender at the Comfort Inn

Federal Court Rules Cops can Shoot your Dog for Barking

Monday, December 26th, 2016
A federal court ruled that cops can shoot and kill your dog if it merely barks at them, something they have been doing routinely for years now anyway.
The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the decision of a lower court last week, siding with Michigan cops who shot and killed two dogs during a drug raid after they entered the home with a battering ram, according to the Huffington Post.
After cops busted down the door, one of the dogs only “moved a few inches” and the other ran down to the basement with its back to the cop when it

REHIRED: Minnesota Deputy Convicted Of Drunkenly Beating K9 Partner After Groping Casino Patrons

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016
A Minnesota sheriff’s deputy who was convicted of animal cruelty on his own K9 service dog in a video recorded beating has been rehired by the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office.
The Law Enforcement Labor Services police union fought to keep the convicted criminal cop Brett Barry on public payrolls.
State arbitrator Gil Vernon decided that the deputy will be forgiven for his rampage, even though it was a drunken frenzy that would land any regular citizen in jail for assaulting a police officer – his K9 partner.
Ironically, Barry will now be paid to guard Ramsey County’s detention unit, instead of spending time behind its bars to repay society

GRAPHIC: Idaho Cop Murders Dog In Own Yard, Demands Cash from Owner for Remains

Friday, September 16th, 2016
An Idaho cop murdered a dog in its own front yard while serving an arrest warrant on a compliant citizen after officers took advantage of a door left ajar.
The arrest warrant turned into a death warrant for the beloved family pet named Targaryan.
Now Caldwell police are threatening to charge an innocent woman with “having a vicious animal at large.”
And they sent her a $200 bill before they’ll release the remains of her deceased beloved pet dog.

Maryland Police Lie to K9 Handler, Abduct and Hide Police Dog in the Name of “Safety”

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015
Anyone who follows police accountability issues knows that the police are authorized to – and indeed often do – lie in the performance of their duties.
Ostensibly, this is to trick the suspected criminal into divulging something that will help officers build their case, but it’s always interesting when this prevarication is turned inward.
We don’t know what’s causing Maryland police lie to each other today.
But it’s spawned an online and very public “blue on blue” petition for justice for a retired officer.

Saturday, September 19th, 2015
In what is becoming a disturbingly frequent occurrence, a two-year-old pit bull named Face was shot and killed by a Fresno County sheriff’s deputy with the last name of Hernandez.
And the entire incident was caught on video by a neighbor.
In the footage, you’ll see two deputies enter a fenced-in backyard, then the lead officer (who we believe to be Hernandez) appears to motion towards or possibly kick at the dog.
Hernandez then quickly draws his gun and fires multiple shots into the approaching canine. The dog scampers away as the second officer stumbles over lawn furniture, seemingly unsure of whether or not
