Lyft Driver Accused of Grabbing Dog From Car and Throwing in Street Must be Prosecuted

Target: Robert D. Laurino, Acting Prosecutor for Essex County, New Jersey

Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly pulled a dog out of a car and threw her onto a sidewalk receive the maximum penalty under law.

A dog was allegedly thrown from a vehicle in a shocking road rage incident. The violent act reportedly followed a fight between the dog’s owner and another man in the middle of the road. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

The shocking video reportedly showed two men fighting in the street. Per the footage, the older man punched and shoved the younger man while shouting profanity. The younger man then reportedly pulled a small dog, named Daphne, from the older man’s car and threw her onto the sidewalk.

Daphne suffered minor bruising and emotional stress, but is recovering well. Marc Dione has been charged with two counts of animal cruelty for torture and torment of a living creature. Sign below and demand that Dione receive the maximum penalty under law, if convicted.


Dear Acting Prosecutor Laurino,

A dog could have died when she was allegedly pulled from a car and thrown onto a sidewalk. A viral video, taken by a witness, documented the alleged cruelty. We demand justice for this poor dog.

Daphne, a 12-year-old Miniature Pinscher, suffered bruises and emotional stress when she was allegedly hurled onto a sidewalk by an angry Lyft driver. The violent act was reportedly in retaliation after the dog’s owner punched and shoved the driver. The cause of the argument is currently unknown.

This horrific cruelty cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    Death wish for this animal abusing bastard!

  3. Wendy Morrison says:

    This younger idiot should never be allowed to own, adopt, and be near another dog or any other animal Fyer serving a long time in prison for throwing this other man’s dog out the car in a rage.
    Both men don’t deserve to have driver’s licenses until they take an Anger Management classes to end their road rage fits!!!!

    10, 15, 20 plus years ago we never heard of such violence or if we did, it was extremely rare. Where is it coming from? TV reality shows that show the worst sides of people? Violent movies glorifying violence? How about digital games? We are exposed to so much cruelty and violence, it seems we’ve become accustomed to it and view violence as an acceptable way to express frustration. I’m beginning to see the merits of living the life of a hermit.

      Yeah, I call it the “too many people” syndrome. As our population increase, our society value’s decrease.

        Unfortunately small towns are just as bad if not worse. They like to pretend they are virtuous and cities are so bad. Meanwhile i made a shit decision to live a small midwest town that literally has 3 times as many sex offenders as the nyc suburb i moved from. These small towners are crappy ppl.

      • tina robertson says:

        Ppl suck everywhere.ppl are cruel everywhere. At least in cities there is a population of animal lovers. In small towns theres maybe 1 other person. Not safe in that town either.

  5. It’s pretty obvious that both need to get it together and take anger management classes and hopefully the judge will order both to do so. It’s really sad that an innocent animal gets to feel the pain of their uncontrollable, dangerous behavior.

  6. tina robertson says:

    Throw this little bitxh in prison. Bigger men there can knock out his teeth and use him 2 at a time. Make him an example. The dog lived but he will do it again. This bitch does not need to live.

  7. tina robertson says:

    Put him on a list for cruelty w sex offenders. They are the same kind of filth. Same kind of pussies. Ppl who do this need to be on a filth list so that society can reject them in every way possible until they give up and kill themselves.

  8. Silver wing says:

    This abusive bully needs to be taught a lesson.
