Don’t Let Man Accused of Whipping Screaming Dog on Camera Go Free

Target: Megan Ferguson, Assistant DA of Angelina County, TX

Goal: Prosecute man who allegedly beat dog on video to fullest extent of law.

Once again, an accused animal abuser is being handed back his reported victims by a lax and uncaring so-called justice system. Lorenzo Johnson was the apparent subject of a Facebook video that went viral. In the video, Johnson is seemingly seen repeatedly whipping a dog that is howling in pain. Neighbors allege it was not the first such incident. After authorities were made aware of the video, Johnson was arrested on felony animal cruelty charges.

In a sad commentary on how “seriously” abuse against animals is often taken in this country, a local judge returned three dogs to the custody of Johnson after he posted bail. This man, apparently caught on video committing abuse, will have unfettered access to these animals. A conviction may be the only way to keep him from potentially harming more innocent living beings. Yet a regional animal welfare organization claims that charges against Johnson were dropped.

Sign the petition below to demand that prosecutors treat this disturbing case with more responsibility and seriousness than the judge seemingly did and reinstate these charges.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear ADA Ferguson,

You have already received thousands of signatures from concerned community members requesting that animal cruelty charges be brought against Lorenzo Johnson, a man depicted in a viral video allegedly abusing his dog. Now comes word from the organization Animal Victory that the felony animal cruelty charges originally brought were dropped. More disturbing still, three animals—including the apparent victim—were returned to this man.

Please bring clarity to this disturbing situation. If charges were indeed dropped despite the reported presence of video evidence, you must offer an explanation at the least or a reinstatement of charges at the most. Do not signal to would-be animal abusers that they have a safe haven in Angelina County.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. What a rotten judge. He deserve the same punishment as the crap that abused that poor dog. Both of them deserve same treatment of their own ‘medicine’

    • Naila M Johnston says:

      Amen!! What absolute horrid people!! Beat the sh$# out of them!! Then may they each receive torturous deaths!
      These are evil, evil people!! I cannot believe that judge!! What a rotten dispicable ass!! As bad as the monster who filmed his beating of this innocent dog!!
      Take all animals away from him now!!!

    • You are right, maybe the Judge is as disgusting as the abuser!!

  2. Joseph Kenosky says:

    This piece of trash should be euthanized for what he did.

    • Naila M Johnston says:

      Yes!!!

    • Should not be euthanised, the bastard should have the same treatment
      It’s the only thing these fuckers understand. As for these waste of space highly paid so called judges, they deserve the same as well, then just maybe they would make the sentence fit the crime!
      Hopefully some animal activists could get to the tosser first and beat six barrels of shit out of him. Better still terminate the wanker permanently.
      I am thousands of miles away but would really like ten minutes with this piece of shit.
      I guarantee he would never abuse an animal again!!

    • Not good enough to get off that easy

    • Tout à fait d’accord

  3. This vile mentally deranged dog abusing scumbag definitely requires instigation of the death penalty. The judge is incompetent, uneducated idiot who obviously dislikes animals. He definitely must have his employment immediately terminated.

  4. Joann Louise Reif says:

    Do NOT LET THAT S.O.B HAVE ANY OF HIS DOGS BACK HE MAY DO THE SAMETHING TO THEM AND IT WILL BE TO LATE TO SAVE THEM AND IF THE COURT SYSTEM IS LETTING HIM HAVE THE DOGS BACK THEY ARE NO BETTER THAN HE IS AMD THEY ALL NEED TO BE THROWN IN A CELL IN A DARK CAVE AND TAKE THE KEY SO THEY CAN’T EVER GET OUT AND SEE HOW IT FEELS TO BE ABUSED AND OTHER SERIOUS STUFF STUPID A WHOLES AND THAT INCLUDES THE SO CALLED COURT SYSTEM THERE IF THEY DON’T STOP JOHNSON THEN NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO AND THE STUPID COURT WILL JUST SLAP HIM ON THE BACK OF THE HSND AND GIVE THE SOB BACK THE DOGS IT’S A REAL GOOD THING I DON’T LIVE THERE CAUSE I WOULD WHIP THE CRAP OUT OF ALL OF THEM.

  5. Carey Sutton says:

    Just Kill the SOB and be done. These dogs deserve to be safe and loved NOT given back to this piece of shit.

  6. lou castora says:

    someone should take these piece of shit politicians and whip them until they beg for mercy, maybe then they will understand what these animals are going through. get those dogs the hell out of there. texas has some real slimebags when it comes to hurting animals.

  7. Francis Avellino says:

    I’m so sick and tired of this.There is no penalty for heinous crimes in our Society Today, whether it is done to humans or animals. that is what happens when you take God out of Everything. Evil rules, and it only continues to get worse.

  8. Michelle Stewart says:

    All animals must be seized immediately from his residence and put in loving forever homes. The bastard must serve 15 years in prison with no early parole, pay a $500,000 fine, and be banned for life from owning or going near any animals ever again. Real justice would be to whip and beat that bastard to death. I hope someone kills him in prison/jail

  9. Disbar this rotten POS animal hating judge, take the animal beater and throw them both in prison with a bunch of animal loving convicts. Problem solved. No unnecessary trial.

  10. DO THE SAME WITH THAT MAN. HE DESERVES IT.

  11. If I saw someone doing that, I know myself, I would lose it on it him and it wouldn’t go well. I’m in dog rescue and I have confronted people, taken dogs and will continue to until my dying breath. Scum like this deserve to have the living shit kicked out of them, rot in prison and then in hell. He deserves karma on the highest level.

  12. Judge you have made a HUGE mistake!!!! The future whippings of rhis poor innocent creature and the blood from him is on your hands!!! Would you allow a rapist who harms innocent children to be free and take a child home with him.
    You did just as awful in letting this monster take his dig, or even allowing him to own any.
    Your are a disgrace to the robes you wear and the office you hold. Step down, now!

  13. That poor dog is a living, breathing being that no animal should ever go through …

  14. Melinda+Maddox says:

    What kind of a judge would do such a thing?? It sounds like this judge needs to be removed from his duties!! I never heard of a judges actions being so horrible and not caring about the abused animals.
    Please take these poor dogs away from this demented man and never let him have any animal ever again!!!
    He really needs jail time. A video ??? What a dangerous bastard Those poor dogs !!!!

  15. Jennifer cotterelll says:

    I pray that this vile monster gets the same done to him and these innocents are placed in loving home. I think if this monster was confronted with the same beating he would be terrified it’s about time there was a group of vigilante men to sort this scum out and sold the so called judge needs the same both are a waste of air. Please God save these animals God only knows what they have suffered before and will suffer again in this bastards hands.

  16. Absolutely unacceptable. This judge needs a wake up call. These judges need educated . No dog can speak for itself . I think it’s more of the uneducated judges fault not to press charges on these severe animal abuse cases . Need judges that show compassion for dogs and other animals , not for the abusers.

  17. That judge should be removed from office. Ok, the man posted bond, but what was the reason he got his dogs back? This type of judge sets precedence when he makes a judgement like this. We need judges on the bench who care about animal welfare. Get rid of that judge and put the abuser behind bars.

  18. Cheryl+Miller says:

    Idiot judge!! Let’s go whip him for a bit and see if he wants to hangout with us later!! This is so idiotic!! It makes me so upset with the crappy justice system!! Why would you let this sicko have any animals?!? WHY??!??

  19. Recall this unfit judge. He is a disgrace to his station.

  20. I wonder if this POS coward can scream as loud or louder if he was whipped the same way?
