The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office has charged a River Rouge man with setting the family dog on fire, as well as obstructing police.
David Westly Didlake, 27, was charged Friday with animals – killing/torturing; assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer; and abandoning/cruelty resulting in death of one animal.
At approximately 9 p.m. Nov. 29, police were sent to a house in the 80 block of East James Street to investigate a dead white dog that was observed to be burned near a bottle of accelerant.
As a result of the investigation, Didlake was arrested after it is alleged he resisted police.
He was arraigned in 25th District Court in Lincoln Park and received a $75,000 cash/surety bond.
A probable cause conference has been scheduled Dec. 13 and a preliminary examination of the evidence against him set for Dec. 20, both at 25th District Court.
Officials did not provide a possible reason as to why Didlake allegedly set his girlfriend’s Shih Tzu on fire. Contrary to an early media report, River Rouge police said Didlake did not do it in anger over the dog biting his young child.
Researching this ape revealed his release from prison on 11/28/2016. His 2014 crime is listed as Assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.
According to a post on Facebook, the dog was his girlfriend’s Shih Tzu.
Didlake is an extremely dangerous creature. A sane society would quickly and humanely execute him with a bullet to the back of the head.
Since America is no where close to sane, regular readers know that my punishment would involve a good lashing and/or caning. Make him feel pain. It’s a deterrent. It would make him think twice about having more violent outbursts.
