PETITION LETTER:

Dear State Attorney King,

A dog was allegedly forced to wear a diving weight in deep water, leading to the dog drowning. The dog’s owner reportedly fled the scene shortly after the dog disappeared underwater. We demand justice for this innocent dog.

Law enforcement charged Jose Dennys Luque with felony and misdemeanor animal cruelty after he allegedly forced his dog to wear a diving weight in deep water. The German shepherd cried and struggled on the edge of the dock, witnesses stated, before following the suspect’s ball into the water. The dog then sank, per reports, and never came back up. The suspect reportedly searched the water for only five minutes before fleeing the scene. Witnesses and the Leesburg Fire Department found the dog several hours later, deceased.

This horrific abuse must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. this basrard should also be given weights and thrown in deep water.What an evil monster.I am not sorry to say that human deaths no longer touch me as animals mean more to me,they have more love and loyalty than so called humans.

  2. Carol Brandt says:

    How I wish he could suffer a similar fate.

  3. jo morrison says:

    I agree with Sheila above!!!!! OMG people must sit up nights dreaming up how to out-monster the next person.
    And so the witnesses just sat there???? Did any of them try to save the dog??

  4. PUT WEIGHTS ON HIM AS WELL AND AND THEN SAY THESE THINGS HAPPEN I WAS JUST TRAINING HIM…YOU ARE EVIL AND A SCUM…YOU PIECE OF SH@T…YOU DON’T DESERVE ANOTHER DOG OR ANY ANIMAL…KARMA FOR THIS EVIL, YOU SCUM OF THE EARTH…JUSTICE FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL ANIMAL PLEASE…

  5. Tina shurtleff says:

    This man needs to be in prison. If it was up to me I would put a 100 lb weight in him and dump in in the ocean. Disgusting. Ban him from all future animal ownership

  6. I think the witnesses should be prosecuted as well. You can act. You can call the police. You can intervene. You can have some guts and help rather than witness the death. What kind of people are you????

    • These subhumans are the the lowest scum on earth, that’s what, tie them up and drop in deep water

    • Agreed, if you didn’t try to intervene then you bear some guilt as well. That being said, the dogs owner needs to be caught and punished to the full legal extent and then banned from owning any animal for life – what a POS he must be

  7. lynn woods says:

    training for what put this sadistic bastard in deep water with weights attached and watch him drown slowly why didn’t someone try to stop this make sure he never has another animal or he’ll do it again subhuman that he is

  8. Dolores Proubasta says:

    Luque was “training” his dog … for what! Fighting other dogs, no doubt, or other dark intentions. It is long overdue that the law take cases like these very seriously to punish and deter other sickos. And of course, José Dennys Luque must be perpetually listed in a State and a National Registry of Animal Abusers, with name, photo, and address. The public needs to beware of these perverts, like they do of sex offenders and other criminals.

  9. Witnesses??? why didn’t these people intervene and save this poor dog then beat the shet out this loser?? what happened to if you see something, say something? just as guilty as the abuser. PROSECUTE THIS LOSER
    Sad story.

  10. michelle mitchell says:

    Death wish for this POS bastard dog murderer.An eye for an eye is required.

  11. This vile wretch will rot in hell, his vicious crime will return to him in full measure ,for there’s a special place in hell for human excrement like this. What that poor dog suffered is beyond the comprehension of any decent normal human being….

  12. Yes and WHY did those witnesses not intervene ?

  13. Nooshin Perla says:

    What a sick BASTARD! I wish you suffer in your short life!!!

  14. This defies belief! What in the name of all that’s holy was he training it to do? He’s an evil liar and shouldn’t be on the streets. Because of his pure badness and mindlessness a beautiful animal died in terror and agony.You can’t let this go- if he can do this to his own dog what else is he capable of? And what about the ‘brave’ onlookers. It seemed no one lifted a finger. He needs a punishment sufficiently severe to make sure he and his audience never even think about doing similar. He needs thoroughly scaring.

  15. Sanaa bejjani says:

    Kill the killer very bad,must change the Laws to be more severe and save Animals from Sick Monster like this ugly coward

  16. This monster should have a huge weight on his neck and throw him in the water and see what happens. This guy is a sicko and he must be punished and not with a slap on the wrist. Jail the monster, ban him from ever having any animal. fine him a huge amount.

    RIP POOR DOG YOU DID NOT DESERVE TO DIE THIS WAY BY SOMEONE WHO SHOULD HAVE CARED AND LOVED YOU NOT PUT A HUGE WEIGHT ON YOUR NECK AND LET YOUR DROWN. WHAT A VILE AND EVIL HUMAN!!!

  17. Looks like Jose needs a 50 lb weight locked around his neck, before being dumped into deep water.

  18. Naomi Lichtner says:

    And the damn witnesses did nothing???
    Sadistic waste of flesh that needs to have the same thing done to him.Obviously this beautiful soul was just a tool for him…praying for karma…Rest easy beautiful dog, I am so incredibly sorry…

  19. Signed! Karma plus a 1 way express ticket to burn in Hell worthless scumbag asshole piece of shit trash pathetic disgusting phock responsible for allowing and participating in the heinous horrific barbaric unjustified intentional cruelty plus murder of an innocent life!!!!
