Man Reportedly Seen on Video Viciously Beating Dog With Broomstick Must be Punished

Target: Steve Marshall, Attorney General of Alabama

Goal: Charge alleged animal abuser with felony cruelty instead of a misdemeanor.

Several months ago, an innocent dog was discovered horribly beaten via security footage of his Alabama home, the alleged abuser being the boyfriend of the family’s daughter. The Raymer family called the police and the man was arrested, but only on misdemeanor charges as it “could not be proven” that Echo the dog’s condition was related to the attack. However, a veterinary examination appeared to suggest otherwise.

Animal abuse is a felony in Alabama. The fact that the accused attacker is being charged with mere misdemeanors for something so horrific is completely unacceptable. The video footage reportedly appears to show the man striking the poor animal with a broomstick, among other atrocities. Frankly, it is a wonder Echo survived such apparent cruelty; the veterinary records detail wounds that could easily kill a dog instantly, if not over a period of suffering-filled days or even weeks.

The man is due in court soon, and he must face felony charges. Sign this petition to ensure that he is punished to the full extent of the law, if found guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Marshall,

An alleged animal abuser was charged with misdemeanor crimes for his reported abuse of an innocent dog. Video footage of the home of his girlfriend’s family seemingly shows him viciously beating their dog, Echo, who somehow managed to survive a multitude of painful injuries inflicted upon him. Alabama law clearly states that animal abuse is a felony.

This is beyond unacceptable. the man’s alleged beating of this poor dog could have killed him, and he must face justice for what he has done. He is due in court soon, and you must ensure that he is properly punished for his alleged cruel behavior towards an innocent animal.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. If animal abuse is a felony, then charge and prosecute as a felony….NOT A MISDEMEANOR! The law is clear, please abide by it. Poor Echo didn’t deserve this and the daughter needs a new boyfriend before he does the same to her. My personal belief is if you hurt children or animals, it should be at least life in prison with absolutely NO RELEASE until they take their last breath.

        LAUREN, YOU ARE CORRECT! THIS CALLAGHAN IS PURE SOCIOPATH SCUM! I BET HE HAS BEEN TORTURING ANIMALS SINCE HE HAS BEEN ABLE TO WALK. THIS POS WILL CONTINUE TO DO THIS UNTIL HE IS PUT INTO PRISON FOR CRUELTY AND INSANE ABUSE ON ECHO, AND KILLING THIS FAMILIES OTHER LITTLE DOG THE DAY BEFORE. THIS LUNATIC WILL END UP KILLING PEOPLE! THIS IS HOW THEY START! GOD, I WISH SOME BIG ASS TOUGH GUYS COULD BEAT HIS ASS TO A PULP! HE IS NOT FIT TO LIVE AMONG PEOPLE OR BEAUTIFUL DOGS AND CATS OF THIS WORLD. BECAUSE WE KNOW WHAT HE DOES WITH THEM DON’T WE??? I WISH FOR EVERYTHING EVIL TO COME HIS WAY ON THIS EARTH FOR WHAT HE DID TO ECHO, AND THE OTHER LITTLE DOG!

    • Jaime Perez says:

  2. This scumbag must have the death penalty implemented.I am ready,willing and ale to perform this procedure on this vile bastard dog abuser.

  3. Steve Marshall….WTH a misdemeanor, are you blind and deaf???? What more do you need to see and hear to charge this POS with several felonies and give him the MAX PENALTY??????!!!!!!!! People like you do not belong in the justice system!!!!!

  4. Lisa Freeman says:

    I don’t understand why we pass laws making something a felony, and then having proof, as in the video, showing this person beating and abusing the dog, and only charge him with a misdemeanor! Why have laws if we’re not going to enforce them? And we wonder why criminals keep getting committing crimes over and over. There’s no punishment!

    • Dianne Parker says:

      I couldn’t agree more!!! This POS needs to pay fir the beatings and scares left by this bastard! He needs to be incarcerated for the maximum laws will allow. And never allowed to own an animal EVER!

  5. Pamela Hengst says:

    Echo, I pray you receive only love and kindness for the remainder of your precious life. Why isn’t the stupid boyfriend in jail!? He committed a felony and deserves prison time. The daughter needs to see what this abusers really is. From beating innocent Echo he will escalate to beating the girlfriend, if he hasn’t already.

  6. Yes Justice for Echo – means that creep needs to be thrown in prison forever or he will be beating the children next! Throw the Book at him!

  7. Patricia Lee says:

    This evil demonic POS needs to be beaten TO DEATH….PERIOD!!! Only guarantee he will NEVER AGAIN HURT ANOTHER LIVING SOUL…HUMAN OR ANIMAL. RID THE EARTH OF HIM AND ALL SCUMBAGS LIKE HIM!

  8. Julia Edinger says:

  9. Margaret Kinlaw says:

  10. Für dieses elende Stück Dreck muss die Todesstrafe verhängt werden das ist das einzig richtige,er ist ein Monster und muss bestraft werden, wenn er mir in die Finger käme würde ich ihn auch schlagen damit er weiß wie sich das anfühlt so ein Basdart!Armer Echo zum Glück hast du überlebt ich hoffe du kannst das Trauma vergessen bei dem Video ist mein Herz gebrochen, Hunde sind das beste was es gibt sie lieben uns uneingeschränkt und mehr als sich selbst,ich habe auch 2 kleine Chihuahua und einen großen Hund, würde jemand ihnen ein Haar krümmen würde er nie wieder aufstehen.

  11. Adam Hartley says:

    Feed the fucker to the alligators. Please, respected judge, throw the book at the asshole.

  12. a person that would do this is not a man and a poor excuse for a human being. someone should put that broom stick where the sun don’t shine and show him the results of animal abuse.

  13. I am so sick of these monsters hurting sweet animals! Someone needs to beat him in the head then throw him in prison! Ideally, I would like to see all animal abusers go to the electric chair!

  14. Find the sick freak that did this, hang him and while hanging beat with metal studded baseball bat until hamburg.

  15. Renata Kuchinsky says:

    This is terrible case of animal cruelty and should be treated as such. This monster is criminal, this case is About animal torture and abuse. Justice needs to be served and served fast.

  16. Canance Marcano says:

    If the law does not step up and get in line with it being a felony nothing will ever change! It’s all about money and who has the most and who is being paid to shove it under the rug! STOP IT AND DO THE JOB YOUR SUPPOSE TO DO! CHARGE HIM WITH A FONLEY LIKE HE SHOULD BE!!! THE LAW NEEDS TO DO THE RIGHT THING!

  17. Gail C Ferriera says:

    Same treatment to this disgusting piece of shit human. I hope there’s a broom in jail.

  18. Lori Georges says:

    Anyone who could hurt an animal deserves stiff punishment. We must be these animals’ voice. They only give us unconditional love. Also, it should be enforced that anyone who harms an animal should NEVER guardian another.

  19. Felony charges should be charged and then beat the asshole to death with a broom stick

  20. Debra A Nahinu says:

    And they wonder why this crap continues……Do your damn jobs and prosecute because that IS your job. If you can’t do it, get out. This is NOT about choosing to prosecute or not, based on if you can win the case. This is about justice!! Put these idiots away or this will continue. Why pass laws you’re not willing to enforce!! Get with the program Alabama!!
