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.


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.

    Another piece of filth that doesn’t deserve to live on this planet! This nasty freak should have his head bashed in. Poor Echo did not deserve this!

  2. I would love to be the one to viciously destroy this POS. He doesn’t deserve to exist. Hope he burns in hell!

  3. Again, law enforcement and the justice system FAIL to do their jobs. Fire these slackers and put someone in place who will uphold the law. If you don’t prosecute this criminal who was caught on tape abusing an animal, you are breaking the law aiding and abetting a criminal, and you deserve to be thrown in jail yourself. Get off your butt and do what you were hired to do – punish criminals who break the law. If not, I will escalate this to the FBI, where animal abuse is taken seriously.

    • I agree. This person should not have any animals. If the law won’t protect an animal then compassionate people will have to take over. Animals lives matter too. They don’t commit crimes but yet they suffer when people do.

  4. Elease M. Bradford says:

    The low-down, slimy snake who beat Echo needs to be charged with felony animal abuse. What he did to poor Echo is unacceptable. He needs to be severely punished. Get well soon Echo and I hope you get justice.

  5. Ashamed to be human says:

    What a pathetic vile excuse for a human being. He’s no man – he’s a COWARD.Someone needs to find that POS & rip his balls off. And the justice system needs to get their s*** together so low-lifes like him get what they deserve – a bullet in the head.

  6. Another sick person who should be locked up. He’s capable of domestic violence, child endangerment, animal abuse, which are all linked together.

  7. Anastacia Whaling says:

    Okay, this has been bothering me all day. First off, why is this 20 year old walking all through this house just beating this dog that isn’t even HIS???Secondly, where the fuck is the girlfriend???I watched the video and this shit just made my heart pound. It’s simultaneously heartbreaking and INFURIATING. And that dog is SO CUTE…And if that dog where MINE that mf would be swiftly dealt with John Wick fashion MYSELF because when it comes to my PETS,THEY are MINE. MY property. He should be euthanized. I have pets and I don’t like ANYBODY near them except people I trust. I’d beat his ass. SOMEbody needs to….

  8. I agree !!!!! Another piece of filth that doesn’t deserve to live on this planet! This nasty freak should have his head bashed in.
    Come on someone, you know who this psycho monster is – kill it slowly.Eradication from our planet is a must.

    Poor Echo did not deserve this! Get well Echo – Blesss you.

  9. Next thing I wanna read in the news is “A man …… …” like the dog he treated that coward way..POS

  10. This perpetrator is a DESENSITIZED, DEHUMANIZED, SADISTIC and PSYCHOPATHIC SCUMBAG !  It’s a BIG SHAME that this MONSTER is only facing a misdemeanor charge for such a BRUTAL, BESTIAL and SADISTIC beating of an INNOCENT, DEFENSELESS, TRUSTING and LOVING dog.
    MISDEMEANOR CHARGE is NOT sufficient!
    This sadistic monster should be facing a FELONY CHARGE of ANIMAL TORTURE and at sentencing, he should be sent to PRISON and PROHIBITED from EVER OWNING an animal in the future.
    Acts of violence like this have NO PLACE in our communities and CANNOT BE IGNORED. ANIMAL CRUELTY needs to be taken as seriously AS any HUMAN VIOLENCE. Animals SHALL NOT BE VICTIMS — and they deserve JUSTICE just like YOU and ME.  

  11. interesting… southern district attorney and judge give slap on the wrist for what they view as a lower life form not deserving of justice the same excuse they use for racism

  12. Alleged??!!!! There is footage of this horrible abuse!!! Also the daughter needs to get repremended for put the dog and possibly the family in danger for bringing this criminal to their home!!! This INHUMANE COWARD must be PROSECUTED with the HARSHER sentence possibly!!!

  13. Stephanie Geyser says:

    Let’s hope the girlfriend gets the hell out of that toxic relationship – QUICK. Or she will be the next on this bully’s list for a beating. And this PoS should be taught a lesson that he won’t forget.

  14. Sergio gustavo says:

    Que le hagan lo mismo a el o que vaya preso

  15. POS beat his ass the same way

  16. I am so sick of these sick fuckers hurting animals. I want someone in Alabama to arrange a Dumpster Trash Day with a Cell Phone and a *911 sign left next to the guy…Do it Boys! Justice will never be served until all of this cruelty ENDS.

  17. This is the GD problem, the law is not consistent. If this AH is only charged with a misdemeanor and the Administration just made “ANIMAL ABUSE” a felony, than WTF?????

    In any case this SOB needs to be taught a lesson! AN EYE FOR AN EYE…

  18. Denise Devereux says:

    Stop all the talk and DO SOMETHING. I don’t live in your country.

    You know the law will do nothing. AN EYE FOR AN EYE.


  19. let me take a broom stick to him. He should only know what and how it feels. Put in in jail and throw away the freaking key.

  20. Lets get that broom stick and pull it into his uss…MF!!!!
