Terminate Firefighter Who Encouraged Torture and Murder of Pit Bulls

Target: Torrington Fire Chief Gary Brunoli

Goal: Terminate the Torrington Fire Department employee that advocated the brutal, sadistic murder of pit bulls on a public forum

A fire department employee in Torrington, Connecticut recently used city-owned computers to post public forum comments advocating the brutal murder of pit bulls. Deputy Fire Marshal Richard Prince encouraged readers of a Facebook page titled “The Pit Bull Propaganda Machine Revealed” to employ disgusting, sadistic tactics if they were attacked or felt threatened by a pit bull. Prince recommended that readers wrap duct tape around the dog’s snout until it is unable to breathe, spray household chemicals into the dog’s eyes, thrust a screwdriver through its eyes and “hopefully into his brain,” or use a sledgehammer to break the animal’s back.

The 24-year fire department veteran referred to pit bulls as “mutants” throughout his sadistic rantings, and even went so far as to recommend sodomizing the dog with something “long and cylindrical like a shovel handle.” To finish the dog off, Prince suggested dragging it to a nearby lake or pool and drowning it, or using a knife to “gut it like a fish.”

Although Prince has been demoted from his position at the Torrington Fire Department for violating city policy by using city equipment and city time to publish some of his graphic posts, he has not been fired. Not only were Prince’s actions a complete misuse of company property, but his sadistic behavior is not conducive to someone who has committed their life to protecting local residents. Prince’s support of animal abuse and torture shows a complete lack of compassion and moral character, making him ill-suited for a position with the fire department.

By signing this petition, you will be urging the Torrington Fire Chief to permanently relieve Prince of his position with the department and set a precedent that this kind of cruel, sadistic behavior will not be tolerated.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chief Brunoli,

I was shocked to learn of the actions of 24-year firefighter veteran Richard Prince. Advocating the torture and murder of pit bulls—d using city-owned property to do sois morally reprehensible and must not be tolerated.

While I commend you for recognizing that Prince’s actions were inappropriate and unnecessarily graphic, simply stripping him of his Deputy Fire Marshal title is not punishment enough for his sadistic behavior. An individual who uses department-owned equipment and time to advocate drowning, stabbing, suffocating, and sodomizing animals is not suited for a position with the Torrington Fire Department.

I urge you to permanently relieve Richard Prince of his remaining responsibilities and duties at the Torrington Fire Department. Do not let the appalling actions of this sadistic man tarnish the reputation of your department.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I would not want this violent animal hating sadist showing up at my house. He needs to be fired and prosecuted.

  2. tracey purnell says:

    That someone who promotes such horror and brutality should remain in employment as a public service provider is beyond belief. Cruelty on such a level is unforgivable, and we have to take a real stand against animal abuse. I am truly shocked and disgusted by the level of twisted thought that has gone into his brutal and unacceptable advice.

  3. Check on this so called human being’s calls to see how many animals have died on his watch. Report it correctly and see if his ass is not in JAIL. But don’t send him to any old prison. Send him to the prison where the are re-educating Pitts. That’ll show his %^&*(&*^% ass.

  4. Jessica Drummond says:

    This is appalling. You are supposed to be a representative of the public and the city. We can’t trust you by your actions. You are sick!

  5. That someone who promotes horror and brutality should remain employed as a public service provider is beyond belief his bosses are just as sick as he is I am truly shocked and disgusted by this action to keep this man employed I would not want this animal hater coming around me or my animal he should be locked up and severely prosecuted for his criminal acts

  6. Heather Buskard says:

    Get this whack job of our streets now! he needs to be locked up forever he is a sociopath and psychopath.

  7. Clearly this man is very seriously mentally ill. He needs to be in a locked down hospital. He clearly has rage issues and the only reason he is not practicing these actions on humans is because pitbulls have become a socially acceptable punching bag in too many circles. The fact that he keeps referring to these animals as ‘mutants’ shows a clear disconnect from realit, and does not acknowledge that humans are responsible for honing the aggressive tendancies of this breed. It is not a far leap from calling a dog breed a mutant, to calling a human a mutant for being different socially or physically.

  8. THESE BARBARIC SCENERIES ARE MONSTERSWORK, NOT HUMANDEGRADING, ABSOLUTELY WRONG & UNACCEPTABLE AND TO BAN IN THE MOMENT! THIS HAS TO STOP IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!

    Pure infantile primitivism – what kind of unhumane monsters are able to handle and destroy LIVING BREATHING CREATURES in that way is unbelievable.

    HAVE YOU ALL LOST YOUR HUMANITY AND BRAIN, FERAL PERSONS RESPONSIBLE??

    People need to vote unacting authorities and officials acting irresponsibly to futuregenerations and living creatures out of occupations ONCE AND FOR ALL!

    DEFORMED UNHUMANE MONSTERS SHOULD SEPARATED AND LOCKED AWAY FROM CIVILIZED CITIZENS FOR DON´T DISTURB THEIR FEELINGS IN A NONHUMANE WAY!

    MONSTERHUNTERS NEEDED

    IT IS TIME N O W TO DEMAND ALL BRUTALIZERS and KILLERS ONTO A LIST TO CONDEMN THEM TO EXTRACHARGE FOR NGO´S working for FUTUREGENERATIONS!

    HOW CAN HUMANS ARE AS MONSTEROUS AS YOU, PERSONS RESPONSIBLE, LET A LIVING CREATURE IN THIS SITUATION – HOPE YOU EARN THE RESULT AS YOU DESERVES!

    THESE KILLING- AND DESTROYING-HABITS ARE TO STOP – UNBEARABLY FOR CIVILIZED BRAINHAVING SOCIETIES AND NOT EXEMPLARY FOR CHILDREN.

    MONSTERS should not have the right to live together with normal humans.

  9. There is a petition for this with over 7000 signitures gaining news coverage and has an established fb page with links to his comments. link to petition:

  10. He is probably a psychopath, a mentally ill person. These people cannot feel kindness, only fear and anger. Brainscans show that 80% of their brain is barely functioning. It’s like it’s in a dream-state. They’re not fit for a responsible or caring job. Unfortunately, they seek such roles in order to abuse them. I think everyone in a caring or social role should have to pass a brainscan to prove they are normal. Otherwise, people like this man will continue to be employed in unsuitable jobs. I also advocate free IVF for the carriers of their genes, which are known, to allow for their deselection as embryoes.

  11. Margaret Matzinger says:

    Man is the only animal on earth that seeks gratification from torturing and killing other animals, and we call ourselves human (humane)!!!!! This kind of behavior begins in childhood and can easily progress to abuse, torture, and killing of other humans. Has anyone checked to see how his wife and children are treated? I bet the chief would say this man is a good church going christian. Many of our most notorious setial killers were also!!!!

  12. Donna Earley says:

    This is not a public servant…he is a public serpent! I demand as a tax payer that funds your payroll…I demand that this man be relieved of his public duties and be forbidden to hold another public, county or federal job. He should also be made to perform many hours of “SUPERVISED” community service working to pick up dog feces in the animal shelters and within the county he served. This man is a disgrace to those firefighters who are heros and does not deserve their entitlement. For you to demote him only is a “slap in the face” to humanity.

    These guys are suppose to be heros.
