Dogs Allegedly Shot by Police Deserve Justice

Target: Kym L. Worthy, Wayne County, Michigan Prosecutor

Goal: Punish police officers who allegedly killed three innocent dogs in cold blood.

Three non-threatening dogs were allegedly murdered by five police officers. We need to take action in order to ensure these officers are legally punished for this senseless crime if they are found guilty.

Officers Gaines, Paul, and Morrison, along with two other Detroit, Michigan policemen, were executing a search warrant at the home of Nikita Smith, who was suspected of possessing drugs. In order to make sure her dogs were safe, Smith reportedly put two of her dogs in the basement and one of her dogs in the bathroom. One of the dogs apparently escaped the basement and ran to go sit next to Smith, at which point an officer allegedly shot it. The officers then went down to the basement, shot another one of her dogs, and then shot the last dog through the bathroom door, according to reports. Afterwards, the officers reportedly laughed about the incident.

Demand the prosecuting attorney suggest that these police officers be punished to the fullest extent of the law if it is found that they committed this cruel and inexcusable act. Dogs that are not presenting a threat to others don’t deserve to be shot in cold blood.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prosecutor Worthy,

Several police officers allegedly killed three innocent dogs. In order to ensure other animals remain safe, it is important that these officers are legally penalized if they are found guilty of having committed this sick act.

According to reports, Officers Gaines, Paul and Morrison, as well as two other unnamed officers, drove to Nikita Smith’s house to search for narcotics. The owner claims that she locked up the dogs to make sure there were no altercations while the officers were inside her home. Shortly afterwards, one of the dogs reportedly escaped from the basement and went to go sit by his owner before allegedly being shot by one of the police officers. The officers then apparently went down to the basement to shoot another animal and shot a third dog through the bathroom door. Just as bad, they later apparently joked about killing the animals in front of the dogs’ owner, Nikita Smith.

For these reasons, I urge you to suggest that these police officers be held legally accountable for taking such actions if it is found that they committed this horrendous crime. Innocent animals don’t deserve to be shot for doing nothing more than being dogs.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. MICHIGAN AGAIN,doesn’t surprise me. Give them a vacation and paid leave courtesy of the taxpayers! What a joke, I would not call the police even if I were dying, they have zero training and ALWAYS DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD, outrageous.

    • Outraged citizen says:

      I totally agree!

      They commit the same exact crimes they try to arrest people for.

      COPS=Citizen Oppression and Persecution Service!

      NEVER CALL THEM!

      THEY ARE A GANG OF DANGEROUS VIGILANTEES!

      The sad thing is, not one of these cops thought this was wrong!

      They did this for SPITE, AND TO INFLICT PSHYCOLOGIGAL DISTRESS UPON THIS ALLEGED WRONGDOER, FOR BOTHERING THEM RESULTING IN THEM HAVING TO DO SOMETHING.

      THESE WERE INNOCENT ANIMALS!

      THESE STUPID COPS, WERE TE–ORISTS! They are really deranged, if they want to shoot people and animals as to have a reason to use a gun.

      The police commit as many crimes, as the criminals, because they don’t think any laws apply to them.

      In my town, a retired officer who became a maintenance man at a Community Center, got arrested for touching under age girls, one being 11 years old.

      Think about this, he was a cop, and the only job he could get, was fixing things?

      Cops ARE vigilantees!

      They couldn’t just serve the warrant, cuff this lady, and leave.

      THEY CAN’T DO THEIR JOBS RIGHT.

      THEY ARE AMORAL VICTIMIZERS!

      NEVER LET THEM IN!

      THEY HAVE TO SERVE A WARRANT TO THE PERSON LISTED ON IT. THE WARRANT SPECIFIES EXACTLY WHAT THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO DO.

      IT DOES NOT SAY KILL ALL ANIMALS AT THE LOCATION.

      THEY ARE VERY STUPID, IF THEY CAN’T TELL A VICIOUS ANIMAL, FROM A FRIENDLY ONE.

      THEY ARE STUPID. THEY RETURNED AN ESCAPED VICTIM TO DAUMER, WHO THEN KILLED HIM, AN INNOCENT BOY.

      DUMB IS DANGEROUS.

      WITHOUT ETHICS IS DANGEROUS.

      THESE DOGS WERE NOT DANGEROUS. THE COPS SOUGHT THEM OUT, WITH INTENT TO KILL.

      THEY KILL PEOPLE ALL THE TIME, THEN MAKE EXCUSES, THEN ARE SURPRISED, WHEN A VIDEO SHOWS THE TRUTH!

      HOW HARD IS IT TO GIVE COPS ETHICS TESTS?

      YOU HAVE TIME TO REQUIRE FIRING RANGE EXERCIZES, BUT NOT AND HOUR FOR AN ETHICS TEST, OR A FILM ON THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN AGGRESSIVE DOG, AND A VICIOUS DOG?

      If they can taze a bull, and make it fall down, then they can taze a dog. Why don’t they carry tranq guns, instead of deadly guns? Not instant enough?

      Why not pepper spray a dog?

      It can’t attack you, if it can’t see.

      Dumb cops kill as many animals as animal abusers, because they ARE animal abusers!

      Pardon my rant any officers who are ethical, and compassionate.

      You are in danger because of vigilantees like these. Please stop being a cop, and help people and animals in a safer job, where bad apples can’t put you in danger.

  2. I normally don’t post any reply but this really pissed me off. The dogs were no danger and the stupid cops new that and what really got me was the third dog being shot threw a door so they knew what they were doing and they knew it was wrong they deserve the maximumn time given to them. I’m just so sick of certain point people like the police getting away with so much.

  3. Death wish to these filthy dog murdering yank oinker pig cops.

  4. Laurie Miskell says:

    Cops are ALWAYS doing garbage like this and getting away with it. When is it going to stop? When will our pets be safe from trigger happy cops who get away with murder? Hire a lawyer and sue the cops, the city, the county and the state for NOT protecting you and your fur babies.

  5. It is terrible to hear that a family pet is killed by police officers. I can imagine that it can get chaotic at times on both sides, but it seems to me they would have some kind of specialized training that allowed them to judge a situation differently when it came to pets. They of all people know how dogs can or will act during stress and their owners, and how important and loved a pet is, what about the children? The dog isn’t the criminal. I just think that the maybe some specialized training that reinforces assessing and controlling a situation involving an animal would benefit. There is absolutely no reason to out right shoot a dog because it’s there, and it seems to be happening more often. Like I said the dog is reacting, their not the criminal, and it usually has owners and family that love it. Sad situation, needs to be addressed.

  6. nancy zebracki says:

    there was a video on the news last week of cops dancing
    everyone said it was good
    perhaps they should dance less and take their job more seriously and humanely

  7. Please do NOT give guns to folks who do not have some simple judgement or the sense of a box of hair!!

  8. Police are getting too trigger-happy. If they see a chance to kill anything whether it be a dog, a cat, a Native American person, a black person, and yes even a white person people (not everything is racist out there), seems like they automatically draw their guns and shoot to kill. When you see your mom Smiles like they did something great no you didn’t do anything great you’re just another lowlife gang banger out there except you have on the police uniform. And then police wonder why citizens don’t trust them. Gee whiz I wonder why. They should have been fired, charges brought against them and arrested. Not put on paid vacation and that’s basically what paid leave is it a paid vacation because they did a good job at killing something. There was a time that police were trusted. Not anymore and it’s their own fault citizens are losing faith in police departments.

    I’m so damned sick of cops shooting dogs!!! ?
    Signed & Shared.

  10. I will always stand with Police, Fire Fighters, Paramedics, Soldiers etc, but I will never stand with an ass hole!

  11. “The only difference between a dog, cat, horse and dolphin and a cow, chicken, pig and turkey is perception. One is no more valuable than another. And yet in this culture, we hold the former animals in high esteem and the latter we brutalize for food. All animals are deserving of respect and freedom from violence. The way to respect others is veganism.”

  12. Shakoo Lanz says:

    These 5 police officers who shot three innocent dogs deserves to be fired from their jobs. These police officers truly committed animal abuse as well as animal cruelty. These three dogs belonged to Ms. Smith and the dog that came out from the basement just wanted to know what was going on and protecting its master. These police officers should have their license revoked for having a gun.

  13. Shoot the cops involved. Simple………

  14. Dr. Tony DeLia says:

    So many bullies in uniform using their badge as an excuse to commit crimes worse than the people they are supposed to stop.

  15. Maria Mahyorova says:

    The owner may be a drug dealer, but a dog never is.
