Gentle Dog Shot By Cop Deserves Justice

pit-bull-by-Dante-Alighieri

Target: New York City Police Commissioner, William Bratton

Goal: Punish cop who shot gentle family pet and properly train officers in humane animal handling.

A gentle pit bull was mercilessly shot by a cop despite showing no signs of aggression. The incident occurred when police officers answered a domestic dispute call in the Bronx. The dog, named Spike, can be seen in footage of the incident slowly approaching the officer while wagging his tail before being callously killed. After being shot, the video reportedly shows the wounded dog still wagging his tail before dying.

This is just the latest in a string of incidents that sees cops shooting harmless family pets. This matter must be urgently investigated to ensure the officer responsible is severely punished for his act. The police department should also make sure officers are adequately trained in dealing with situations involving animals. Sign this petition calling for the rapid investigation of this terrible incident and for the quick implementation of mandatory officer training in humane animal handling.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commissioner Bratton,

A gentle pit bull named Spike was shot and killed by a police officer in the Bronx. Footage of the incident shows the dog approaching the officer slowly while wagging his tail. Yet the officer callously shot him dead.

Cases such as these surface far too often and prove that police officers desperately need to be trained in humanely handling situations involving animals. This particular incident requires proper investigation and the cop responsible must be punished for his act. Please also rapidly implement mandatory training for all officers, teaching them canine body language and how to react humanely to a situation involving animals.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Nature treats back now ? bastard
    Take responsibility for your crueltyLive your nightmare ?

  2. These shooting and killing of peoples beloved pets are happening all the time now and that must stop and stop now.

    I hope Miss Rosetta goes to aldf.org/police and gets help. I hope that you and Spike get the justice that you deserves after your beloved baby was murdered by this cop.

    I saw the video and it made me sick and mad as hell. THESE SHOOTINGS MUST STOP AND STOP NOW. THESE COPS MUST BE TRAINED ON HOW ,WHEN AND IF YOU USE YOUR GUN OR A TASER. GUNS SHOULD ONLY BE USED IN A EXTREME SITUATION NOT WHEN A FRIENDLY ANIMAL HISSES AT YOU, A DOG WALKS OUT THE DOOR WAGGING HIS TAIL,A COP GOES TO A WRONG HOUSE IN A BACK YARD AND A DOG IS THERE, A DOG MEETS YOU AT HIS HOMES FRONT DOOR AND THE COP DOESN’T LIKE THE DOGS LOOKS SO HE SHOOTS ALL OF THEM. THIS IS WHAT HAS HAPPENED AND IT MUST STOP NOW!!

    AND YOU WONDER WHY THERE IS SUCH A BAD TASTE IN THE PUBLIC’S EYES FOR COPS TODAY?? I KNOW THAT A COPS JOB IS DANGEROUS AND A LOT OF PEOPLE AR UNGRATEFUL FOR ALL THAT THEY DO TO KEEP US SAFE FROM THE MANY MANY BAD GUYS…..WITH THAT SAID UNNECESSARY SHOOTINGS OF PETS ARE UP UP UP AND THAT MUST STOP NOW NOW NOW.

  3. this sorry excuse for a human being needs to be punished to the max.He didn’t any excuse to shoot this dog who showed no aggression. Just because they have power of the law behind them they think they have the right to abuse anyone and everyone.I hope he gets to have a desk job. The stupid cop was at the wrong house in the first place.HE was the one that was out of line.He should have to apologize to the lady,pay her for emotional distress,and never be able to carry a gun again.

  4. Maybe we’ll get to see a video of this subhuman pos writhing as he’s dying on the street somewhere. A very dirty street full of garbage because that’s what he is.

  5. I THOUGHT ALL POLICE WERE GIVEN A MENAL CAPACITY TEST BEFORE THEY WERE ALLOWED TO BECOME POLICE OFFICERS, SO HOW DID THIS ONE GET THOUGH THE TEST WHEN HE IS CLEARLY MENTALY NOT POLICE OFFICER MATERIAL, AS A LOT OF COPS ARE MENTALY NOT, AND HE CLEARLY HATES DOGS AND SHOOTS ANY DOG THAT HE SEES, SO THIS COP HAS TO BE FIRED RIGHT NOW, WE DONT WANT COPS THAT SHOOT OUR PETS WHEN THE PET HAS WAGGED ITS TAIL AND IS FRIENLY, GET RID OF THIS COP NOW, HE SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN A COP IN THE FIRST PLACE, DO MENAL CAPASITY TESTS A ON ALL COPS BEFORE THEY CAN BECOME COPS OR THERE WILL BE A LOT MORE KILLINGS OF OUR PRECIOUS PET DOGS.
