Fire Police Officers Accused of Running Over Two Dogs With Patrol Car

Target: Paul Tiernan, Chief of Police, Newark, Delaware

Goal: Fire police officers who allegedly ran over two dogs and shot one of them.

In Delaware, fifteen police officers and animal control reportedly spent 90 minutes chasing after two loose stray dogs near a busy intersection. Officers decided that they were on pursuit for too long and allegedly decided to take it into their own hands and run over both dogs. A German Shepherd and pit bull were both allegedly struck by the vehicle. Both dogs were reportedly severely injured, however, the German Shepherd was able to run away while the officers allegedly shot the helpless pit bull multiple times.

The Newark Police Department released a statement after the alleged incident occurred stating the dogs “were aggressive towards the officers by sprinting towards the officers, baring their teeth, growling and foaming at the mouth.” This report was denied by two witnesses who work at a local SPCA. They said that the dogs were terrified and weren’t behaving aggressively, they were just running away from the officers who had taser guns. This wouldn’t be the first time that law enforcement has abused their power. Demand that these officers be fired for their alleged reckless actions.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Tiernan,

Officers from the Newark Police Department allegedly took it upon themselves to target and run over two stray dogs. These stray dogs were reportedly running away from these officers for 90 minutes, when they were allegedly hit with a car. Although this aggressive act did not kill the dogs, they were both severely injured. After the alleged  heinous animal abuse, the German Shepherd was able to run away, but the pit bull wasn’t as lucky. This poor animal was allegedly shot multiple times.

Two witnesses agreed that the dogs were not aggressive at all. They were simply terrified by the officers and animal control, which was why they were running away. Running over these animals and shooting one of the dogs is an act of animal abuse. We demand the officers involved be fired for their alleged actions.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. THESE GUYS ARE OUT OF CONTROL AND UNFORTUNATELY THIS IS THE CARRYOVER WE ARE GETTING FROM WASHINGTON WHERE BAD, NASTY, UNDISCIPLINED BEHAVIOUR IS CONDONED!!!! AND THIS DISEASE HAS SPREAD ALL OVER THE LAND. WE ARE BEING TRUMPLED!!!!
    ONE OF THE LOCAL POLICE OFFICERS IN THE TOWN WHERE I LIVE, RESCUES DOGS AND WOULD BE APPALLED AT HOW THESE ASSHOLES BEHAVED!!! THEY SHOULD BE FIRED (BUT THEY WON’T BE AS THESE WERE “JUST DOGS”)AND THEY SHOULD GO TO JAIL (BUT THEY WON’T……………)

    • Agree with you, wish these arseholes could receive the “Red Hot Poker Where The Sun Doesn’t Shine”. They just need to be taken off the planet, each and every one until no animals abusers remain. Anyone got any spare bullets???

  2. Yeah, wasn’t that their same claim for shooting people too? Total BS!

  3. That is pretty low! How can they be trusted to do the “right thing”? A rotten example for the police!
    They should be removed permanently!

  4. Catherine Dugan says:

    What kind of police force does NJ have that they feel it’s fine to run over two innocent dogs! This officers need to be suspended, without pay!

  5. It’s so tragic that those who swore to protect and serve have become some of the worst animal abusers ever. These morons should be fired and charged with felony animal abuse. Enough is enough.

      I think abusers.. all around would suffice.. seems like whence a uniform is put in… somehow all of the sudden, they become invincible offending, abusing, and killing animals and humans or animals thing they deem fit. They have become judge ,jury, and executioner!
      The is a system broken…and we need a serious overhaul!

  6. Karma iscoming says:

    Who is taking up the petition against this? Is it the brandy wine spca??

  7. People as uncivilized as those perpetrators should never have been employed by the police in the first place. They clearly have no compassion and enjoy the feeling of being able to decide who lives and who dies.

    They lied about the reason for doing what they did and that is proof that they cannot be trusted.

    If you can lie, you can cheat and if you can cheat, you can steal.

    Who knows how many lives they have stolen and what else they have non-chakantlt stolen !

    They don’t deserve to wear the badges they wear and should be fired. They are a disgrace to the police force.
