Dog Reportedly Shot to Death By Police Officer Deserves Justice

Target: Inkster Police Chief William T. Riley

Goal: Fire the officer who allegedly shot an innocent pet.

A man in Michigan called the police after a fight broke out at a local gas station. Little did he know that the phone call would end with the alleged murder of an innocent dog. As soon as the cop arrived on the scene the caller’s pup, Moose, approached the police vehicle in a friendly way, his body language loose and his tail wagging. The officer reportedly shot Moose four times. Conveniently, the officer’s body camera stopped working right before the incident, but someone who had been filming in the area caught the whole ordeal on video.

Cops kill between 25 and 30 dogs every day in the United States. Shockingly this number is likely an underestimate as police are not required to report animals they shoot on the job. The Department of Justice recently declared the number of dog deaths at the hands of police officers an epidemic. Yet as families are left dealing with the trauma of the horrific loss of their pets, officers almost never suffer any consequences.

This problem is directly related to police murders of civilians. This problem is directly related to police murders of civilians. Time and again, the American public is told that officers’ job is to serve and protect, yet what cops do in our communities is terrorize our neighbors and our pets. This trigger-happy officer who would apparently rather shoot first and ask questions later is a clear danger to the community.

It is time to begin holding officers accountable for their abuse against animals. Sign now and demand that this Inkster, Michigan police officer should be fired for reportedly slaughtering Moose.

PETITION LETTER

Dear Chief Riley,

An officer in your department was apparently filmed shooting a non-violent, unthreatening dog owned by a citizen who reported a fight at a gas station. He reportedly shot the dog, Moose, four times, and his body camera happened to stop working just before the incident, which means that he would not have been caught if he wasn’t filmed by a bystander.

This is entirely unacceptable. There is a reckoning that must happen when it comes to the way police officers interact with the public, and that starts with you and officers like you. When an officer kills a citizen or their pet it breaks the trust that the public puts in law enforcement. This is a relationship that has been fraying for a long time, and it is only going to get worse unless the powers that be reconcile with the community. That must start with firing the officer who allegedly slaughtered Moose in the streets.

Please, make this death right and begin to restore the communities trust in you.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Absolutely agree- trigger happy cops must be punished. What kind of training do they receive?

    Scared of a friendly dog- very disturbing. I would pursue charges if he killed a pet of mine.

    Bystander should have minded her own business

    • Not to mention the heartbreak his owner sustained after doing what a responsible citizen is told to do anytime they are witness to an act of violence occurring. I doubt he will be so forthcoming in the future. His trust in the police department is most likely broken forever. I hurt for this owner and the sweet dog that never suspected that his friendly gesture would cost him his life.

    • If the bystander had minded their own business, there would no proof of what this PoS cop did. Go sit down!

  2. These cops are just trigger happy bastards looking for some sport which entails murdering innocent animals.
    This fucker hiding behind his badge obviously knew that this particular dog was no threat but took pleasure in murdering it anyway.
    Typical sadistic tosser who needs a fucking good thrashing!

    I wonder if this wanker would have done the same thing if it had been a human??
    Most probably. Funny how the bastards ‘can’ happened to be switched off at this exact time.
    I do hope that someone who feels strongly enough will do the same to this arsehole one dark night.
    Fucking cops—- I‘ve shit em!,

  3. WHAT AN INCOMPETENT MAN. SHOULD NEVER BE A POLICE OFFICER AGAIN..

  4. WHAT’S WRONG WITH THE HUMAN BEING!!! Some humans are the most cruel and evil on earth!!!

  5. THAT CRUEL OFICER TURNED OFF HIS BODYCAM BECAUSE HE WANT TO SHOOT WHITHOUT WITNESSES.

    JAIL THIS MORON POS FOR LIFE.

    • In the same cell as someone this jerk had arrested. Think of how scared the sissy would be then. Just think of the feeling the person he put in jail will feel. I could watch that

  7. Death penalty for that scumbag cop. I am all for that!

  8. Jennifer Mentzer says:

    Though I think this is absolutely horrible, and this individual needs to be punished, I don’t think demonizing all police officers is productive. We are having surges in crime, people losing faith in our police, and police officers quitting, over this false narrative that they are randomly shooting anything that moves. This is the exception, not the rule. Because of this false narrative, police officers are being targeted and shot. Do a search of how many police officers have been shot this year. Thousands shot, hundreds killed. Let’s focus on getting rid of the bad ones, without demonizing the good ones.

    • I think this is the most interesting comment I have seen. I love animals and hate to hear of one being hurt, let alone shot to death, but the police have a very hard job in this day and age and although this one who shot the dog seems to be one of the rotten ones by turning off his body camera, which should be easy enough to check as if it had broken, he would have either had to get another or had his present one mended. If turning off was the case, then he should be severely punished and I mean VERY severely as it would mean that he intended to shoot this sweet dog.

  9. This cop must be fired. Who knows who he will shoot next? I know they have a hard job but murdering an innocent dog is despicable! Justice for Moose!

  10. Raynesha+McGhee-Reed says:

    Give this Prick of a police officer the death penalty 4 shooting this poor dog!!!!

  11. YOU DISGUSTING EXCUSE FOR A HUMAN BEING. A POLICE OFFICER….I DONT THINK SO. JUST ANOTHER MORON WITH A GUN, FREE TO PLAY AND DO WHAT HE WANTS. NO HERO, JUST AN ANIMAL KILLER. PATHETIC MALE. YOU SHGOULD BE STRIPPED OF ANY LAW BADGE, LET ALONE A GUN….YOU ARE INSANE AND DISGUST ME!!KARMA WILL ALWAYS, ALWAYS FIND YOU.

  12. Officers should not only have to account, in detailed reports, for EVERY bullet they fire, they should account for EVERY incident where they unholstered their weapons. They should also be subject to MANDATORY investigations (without pay) for every life they snuff out, be it human or animal, and every death needs to be made a permanent, PUBLIC part of their record. Investigators must not be aligned with the police department; they need to be made up of unbiased citizens from the community. There also needs to be a national database so repeat offenders cannot simply move to the next county and hire on. It’s long past time to weed out the bad cops that give the good cops a bad name.

  13. This vile scumbag oinker pig cop most definately must have the death penalty implemented.A slow and agonising death for this evil,mentally deranged scumbag is essential!!

  14. These gun happy cops are out of control.This is happening much too often.

  15. Laurie Miskell says:

    POS cop, Karma is coming for you, RIP sweet furbaby, I’m sorry your last moments were at the hands of subhuman slime..

  16. KILL KILL KILL…it must end NOW.. This evil cop needs to be prosecuted and removed from society forever. IMO

    I am a Strong supporter of law enforcement but this moronic imbecile is an embarrassment to all. This twat waffle need s to be disciplined ,fired & made to write a note of apology to the dogs owner. What a douche!

  18. Knowing that anything can happen when cops are called to the scene, we have to be proactive and take defensive action BEFORE they arrive. Lock your dog in the car with his harness attached to the seat belt. Many men are afraid of dogs. Don’t give cops an excuse to shoot your dog.
