Black Cop Who Dumped His Emaciated Dog in Trash Arrested

THE RECOVERING PIT BULL HAS BEEN NAMED CRANBERRY.

Blacks seem to commit animal abuse at a much higher rate than the general population. It’s another form of cultural enrichment that diversity brings to your town and mine.

A police officer who allegedly dumped his emaciated dog in a trash bag in a Philadelphia park has been arrested.

Michael Long, an 11-year veteran of the Philadelphia Police Department, is accused of leaving the pit bull for dead in Philadelphia’s Wissahickon Valley Park last November. Long, 33, surrendered to police on Thursday.

A dog walker alerted the SPCA after seeing the pup’s nose sticking out from a trash bag. Photos taken shortly after she was found show her cowering on the ground, with her rib bones visible through her fur.

The SPCA took in the 3-year-old dog, who has been renamed Cranberry.

They learned she had a microchip, which they say led them to Long.

Following months of treatment, Cranberry was adopted, the SPCA told InsideEdition.com.

“Cranberry is doing wonderfully now,” spokesperson Gillian Kocher said. “She is in her new forever home, has recovered completely physically and has the same sweet and loving personality that she has always had.”

She was adopted by a man who followed her story on the news, Kocher said.

“He was so touched by her story that he came in to make a donation and met her,” she said. “He returned twice while she was recovering, and when she was ready to go home, he made it official.”

Following the investigation by the SPCA, Long surrendered himself to the Philadelphia Police Department’s Internal Affairs Unit on Thursday.

He is charged with two misdemeanors for animal cruelty, one misdemeanor for possession of an instrument of crime, and a summary charge of animal cruelty, police said.

“He has not acknowledged any wrong doing in this case as of this time,” Kocher said.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross has suspended Long for 30 days with the intent to dismiss at the end of the 30 days, police said in a statement. He was assigned to the 18th District.

This story was posted on the web about a month ago. Long should be gone soon.

‘Puppycide’: 2 Detroit cops kill 100 dogs during tenure, investigation reveals

An investigation has determined that dogs are the innocent victims in Detroit’s war on crime.

Dogs have a natural instinct to protect their masters. It’s why we adopted the dog as man’s best friend some 20,000 years ago.

Animal control officers do not shoot dogs so I fail to see why police would need to do so on a routine basis. Police brutality can come in many forms, including dog murder.

RT.com

Harrowing reports filed by the Detroit Police Department have revealed that police killed 25 dogs last year and at least 21 this year. The records also identified two officers that have killed more than 100 dogs throughout their combined careers.

The ‘destruction of animal’ reports, obtained by Reason, provide evidence of what critics are calling ‘puppycide.’ They reveal that at least 46 dogs were killed in 2015 and the first eight months of 2016 – despite just one officer being bitten by a dog during that period, according to the records.

‘Dog hunting’
The department has found itself at the center of numerous lawsuits due to its officers’ trigger-happy behavior, one of which was filed by Plaintiff Nikita Smith, who claims officers killed her three pit bulls while executing a narcotics search warrant in January. She claims her dogs were not misbehaving, and that she told the officers she was putting the dogs away. She placed two in the basement and one in the bathroom.

When one of the dogs escaped and sat down next to Smith, officers reportedly opened fire and killed it, before charging into the basement and shooting a second pit bull that was pregnant and backed into a corner. They then moved on to the bathroom, where one officer asked “Should we do that one too?” before opening fire through a closed door.

Although the officers claim they were approached by “vicious” pit bulls at the house, Smith’s attorney Chris Olsen has called their bluff, referring to photos from the scene, which he says resemble the horror film The Shining.

“…The dog is in the back of the bathroom and just covered in blood. But their (officers’) story is that the dog opened the door itself and was coming to eat them. The problem is the door handle wasn’t a latch. It was a knob. That’s how fu**ed up it is. That’s their story in federal court.”

According to Olsen, one of the officers involved in shooting Smith’s dogs, William Morrison, had shot 39 canines dogs prior to that fateful day.

“That’s a staggering number, and that’s just one officer out of six involved in that case. Someone who’s killed 39 dogs in the course of duty… is really hunting,” he said.

WATCH 450 DOGS RUN & PLAY TOGETHER!!!!

This Serbian rescue center needs donations. Please consider helping if you can. The fun loving canines in the video are the real “refugees” who need help.

From the youtube information box:

Published on Oct 16, 2015

Anyone who has ever heard whispers of this sanctuary in Serbia knows what a magical place it is. This amazing haven is home to 450 rescued dogs. But this is no ordinary rescue center. What’s most incredible is not just the number of dogs who live here, but the WAY they live.

Rather than being warehoused in cages and kennels, the dogs here PLAY all day long. They experience joy, good food and human kindness – often for the very first time.

The cost of care for each dog here is $15 a month, yet we only have sponsors for 88 dogs. Please, please will some of you help us? The Harmony Fund, a USA registered charity, is soley responsible for maintaining the sanctuary and the monthly costs of feeding the dogs. We can’t reduce the dogs’ food intake for lack of donations and we certainly can’t pick and choose which dogs eat. With winter coming, we hope to stockpile some food. This is one charitable investment that will bring you nothing but happiness.

IF YOU CAN HELP US FEED THE DOGS, CLICK HERE: http://harmonyfund.org/donate/help-fe… Thank you.

ATTENTION MEDIA: If you are sharing our video on your site, PLEASE, please, please credit the Harmony Fund and include a link to our donation page for the dogs here http://harmonyfund.org/donate/help-fe… Thank you for your professionalism.
