Fire Police Who Allegedly Ordered Dog to Attack 12-Year-Old Boy

Target: Orlando Police Chief John Mina

Goal: Fire the police officers who allegedly ordered a police dog to attack a 12-year-old boy.

Police officers in Florida are accused of ordering a police dog to attack a 12-year-old boy who is now dealing with painful bite marks left all over his body. The injuries were so severe, the boy spent two days in the hospital and had to get stitches. The boy’s parents are alleging that police used excessive force and must be held accountable.

The boy was suspected of breaking into Shingle Creek elementary school. When officers arrived on the scene, they ordered the boy and two other minors involved to drop the ground. When one of the boys didn’t listen, the police ordered their dog to attack. The other minors allege that the boy had already dropped to his knees when the dog mauled him.

The boy will now have to make weekly doctor’s visits to check on nerve damage and may have permanent scarring. Demand the police chief fire these officers for using excessive force on a minor if these allegations are proven to be true.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chief Mina,

Your police officers are accused of ordering a police dog to attack a 12-year-old boy who is now dealing with painful bite marks left all over his body. The injuries were so severe, the boy spent two days in the hospital and had to get stitches. He may have nerve damage and permanent scarring because of this attack.

It’s not right that officers felt the need to release an attack dog on this minor who posed no real threat to them. They should have been able to handle the situation without the use of excessive force that will now effect his boy for the rest of his life.

I urge you to fire these officers for using unnecessary excessive force if these allegations are proven to be true.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Is this the way the police deal with children in Florida?

    • What if these 3 “children” had broken into your house? Would you treat them to lemonade and cookies? Easy for you to pose emotionally-loaded questions when it’s not your home that’s being invaded. That’s why children in this country are running rampant and flouting the law. Go abroad and see what they do to children for doing less.

  2. Wolfgang Zenker says:

    The response was totally out of proportion to the threat. This boy provided no threat to the officer. No different than shooting a man in the back because he is running away from a policeman.

    • Your comparison is provocative and off-base. How do know there was no threat to the officer? In the same situation, would you take the chance?

      If you’re not where you should be and get caught, obey and you won’t be hurt. That’s why the other 2 boys were untouched.

  3. I will not sign this. I’m sick of the automatic reaction that the police are at fault. If the boys had been at the library doing their homework, this wouldn’t have happened. Then they disobeyed orders? What was the officer to do? What if they were armed? Can you believe what the boys claimed? They got what they deserved. They’ll be breaking into your house next, and worse. Then you’ll be yelling for the police. You can’t have it both ways.
