Target: Richard A. Brown, District Attorney of Queens, New York
Goal: Obtain harsh sentences for siblings who abused dogs and participated in illegal dog fighting
Recently, two individuals were arrested on animal cruelty, animal fighting, and possession of illegal drugs charges in Queens, New York. The investigation of their’ house by New York Police revealed numerous ghastly discoveries.
The police faced a revolting shock when they investigated Addison Holder and Keisha Hall’s house in Jamaica, Queens. Investigators found 20 emaciated and brutalized pit bulls in the home, which contained a gore-smeared treadmill used to train the dogs. In the garage of the home, five emaciated pit bulls with heavy chained collars were found, with no water or food nearby to feed them. The garage walls were soaked in blood and no light was emitted into the room. Near the dogs, various dog torturing devices were found. These “training devices” included a large battery connected with electrical wires and blood-covered pieces of wood.
Dog fighting is a multi-million dollar industry, and perpetrators of illegal dog-fighting vary widely. Addison Holder and Keisha Hall are siblings who their shocked neighbors described as “quiet, hard-working people.” These two individuals were able to get away with brutalizing dogs for profit for quite some time due to their careful concealment of dog fighting evidence.
In addition to facing dog fighting charges, Addison and Keisha are also facing drug possession charges due to the discovery of ecstasy and methamphetamines in the siblings’ home during the investigation. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), “The fights may be conducted with money, drugs, or bragging rights as the primary payoff.” Drugs are also often injected into the dogs to stimulate the dog fights.
Please sign the petition below to urge the district attorney to give the perpetrators of dog fighting, Addison Holder and Keisha Hall, a harsh sentence. The acts that they have committed are inexcusable and they should be held accountable to the highest degree for their acts of pure evil.
Dear Richard A. Brown,
Dog fighting is a highly profitable business that unfortunately many individuals take part in. Dogs involved in the dog fights endure immeasurable pain at the hands of their cruel owners, often subjected to torture such as electric shocks, beatings, starvation, and mutilation from attacks by other dogs.
Hearing about the case of Addison Holder and Keisha Hall’s animal cruelty through involvement in dog fighting was quite shocking. The descriptions of the condition of the siblings’ residence brought to mind chilling images, which are incomparable to the living hell that the dogs have endured on a daily basis.
I urge you to ensure that Addison Holder and Keisha Hall receive heavy sentences for the immense pain that they have inflicted on the poor dogs that they had in their possession. No animal should be subjected to such cruelty.
