“We’re good, no witnesses,” an off-camera voice says.
Police officer in North Carolina chokes a police dog by its leash & slams the innocent animal against a car, hits, while other officer reassures him there are “no witnesses.”
Folks who are horrified (& you should be) by this: animal abuse includes what you torture/kill/eat on the daily. If we eat meat, or dairy, you’re killing chicks, and separating mommas from their children, then killing the children, raping the mother, killing the mother…this may sound melodramatic, but that’s only if we believe that animals don’t have rights, or aren’t sentient. Compared to our daily plate, and glass, abusing a dog is child’s play. And it’s not child’s play, it’s awful.
“When a canine is noncompliant with the handler’s commands, the handler is trained to correct the dog,” he said. “Canine training tactics and corrective measures can sometimes be alarming out of context. S.P.D. cannot and will not comment about whether the training tactics used in the video were appropriate, because that is still being reviewed.”
But don’t worry, they’re investigating themselves.
