Officer responding to theft, shoots the victim's dog. Most brutal story yet.

As a dog owner I'm speechless. Here's a small excerpt of victim's account.

"Deputy Jerred Dooley then retreats to his squad car, exclaims over his loudspeakers “do not approach the vehicle”, and calls in full reinforcements. He leaves my dog in my yard yelping and thrashing in unbearable pain. I BEGGED him to shoot her again (SINCE MY WEAPONS WERE STOLEN!) and he refused. I then had to do the otherwise unthinkable and take my poor baby’s life with my own hands while praying for this to be over with."

Update "Jerrod Dooley, 32,


"Jerrod Dooley, 32, has been charged with a state jail felony, punishable by up to two years behind bars."



His attorney says, "It’s a legal impossibility because he was acting within the scope of his employment as a public servant. We look forward to our day in court.”

So his employment as a public servant means that he can't be guilty of animal cruelty?


That dog

was worth more than the POS that shot him.

Update: Officer who shot dog has been fired.... for HIS safety

Good! I Freaking Glad That Moron Got Fired

I'm glad! The SOB evidently hasn't any gray matter between his ears...

The next time he might shoot a crying baby...


As an animal lover...

After reading this, I got really sick to my stomach. When I got home from work, I played with my dog for longer then usual.

But rather than troll the useless police department and their sub human "Peace officers", I decided to take a more positive approach...

I'm am starting a website/FB page called "Everytown For Animal Safety"

Now, whenever some government "Peace Officer" BLM or whatever is cruel to animals, I'll add the town it happened in to a master map, alerting anyone anywhere just what kind of crappy place it is.

These places will remain on the map until the perp is punished. Until then, It will serve as a painful warning for all tourists and travelers to avoid.

Perhaps the loss of revenue will drive people in these places to clean house of all the cowardly scum that think it's alright to kill innocent animals!

Label Jars, Not People!

Great idea~

I'd love to know when you get it up

Just punishment.

That officer should have been shot in the same body area as the dog so that he could experience the consequence of his unjustifiable actions. Maybe that is what it takes for these people to understand that dog bite doesn't equal death.

Im disgusted.

And almost in tears. Glad to see the cop was fired.

Justice for Candy..

Fired today and will be "unable to return to work at the Rain's County Sheriff's Office regardless of the outcome of the investigation, which is currently ongoing.:

For his own safety..

Damn right! That's how it

Damn right! That's how it should be done every time.

You're just wasting your time calling police after a burglary

As a Security Alarm Systems Contractor, I hope that I and my company have provided deterrence against burglary for tens of thousands of people who thus since have never been burgled. Yet, in the rare instances when one of my clients or those who had yet become a client were in fact burgled, I can't really think of a time when calling the Police ever turned out to be much of a practical service following their misfortune.

Should it ever be my own home is burgled, the first call I make will not be to the Police but instead my Insurance Agent whom it is I have established a personal relationship. I have little doubt, in knowing this man as long as I have, that he will believe anything and everything regarding any claims of loss or damage I make regarding a burglary; that is after all, what it is he regularly does for a living. If need be, your insurance agent can arrange for a 'crime scene investigator' to come to your home but you simply do not ever need armed patrol officers in your home; they can't help you.

While it is we THINK cops regularly catch burglars for a living, they don't really do that and the truth is they almost NEVER catch burglars in exchange for their living.

If you have a good insurance agent, he'll help simplify all the paperwork and then give you a check. But even the best that regular patrol officers can ever give you is nothing but more grief.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead

Great Post

Excellent post. Thank you sir.


I'd be in jail for attempted murder if that were my dog.

NOTE: I am not advocating violence in any way. The content of the post is for intellectual, theoretical, and philosophical discussion. FEDS, please don't come to my house.

I live five minutes away from

I live five minutes away from where this happened. Let me tell you..the whole town is up in arms over this guy. He'll probably end up transferring to a different county.


Did you mean countRy?

Texas uses county

to divide it up into areas. California uses county and I'm pretty sure Louisiana uses parishes.. different states use different terms and now you have me curious lol I am curious...

Cop showed no regard for the man's dog, and

basically killed him because he barked at him. This is occurring everywhere these days. It behooves anyone who calls a cop for any reason to lock up their animal pets before these killers arrive.

But why did the man finish off the dog by drowning it? I'd rather be in pain by a bullet wound; generally the pain from shock would subside a bit after a while and with the ebbing away of life even more. I can imagine being shot and as I lay dying someone tries to waterboard me, or strangle me. No, I don't think drowning the dog was a good call.

I read about a situation

where the dog owner tied up and closed up his dog in the bathroom. The cop opened the door and shot the dog.

I remember this happening


Daughter of 1776 American Revolutionists

No words...

Dash cam shows cop straight up lied to the owner's face.. so used to lying and getting away with it they can't comprehend video will catch them out??? My disbelief sounds really naive even to me...

There's a link to a petition here

I signed it and wrote:

Jerred Dooley, badge number 510 actions were clearly irresponsible and totally unacceptable. He used excessive force and showed very poor judgement. He should be removed as an officer and is clear danger to public safety.

We need 10,000 signatures, DO IT!

It is easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled. – Mark Twain

There's a problem right now with "wild pigs." Perhaps we should

start shooting THEM on sight 'for our safety.'

Of course, we shouldn't shoot to kill, only maim them, forcing them to suffer, and NOT allowing them medical treatment like this one did.

I used to not want the STHTF because I have an inkling of just how horrible it will be. But my penchant for 'normalcy' and my dread of the horrors of war are really tested when I see assclowns like this one. Hopefully, he'll be prosecuted accordingly, a big enough fuss will be made that officers will then be trained properly, because if not, this nutburger just pushed us closer to civil war. The PEOPLE will not put up with this crap for much longer. If this guy doesn't get served his plate of justice by the government that is supposed to give it to him, I sincerely hope someone steps up to the plate.

"Wild pigs" = domestic terrorists. They should be killed in

preemptive strikes.

What would the Founders do?

My God, this is sad

We are seeing why too many of these videos of abusive, arrogant police misconduct. It's a symptom of a sick and failing law enforcement system.

That punk piece of garbage

said he did it for "his safety". I guess it's time to start showing these miscreants that doing such an inhumane thing isn't conducive to their or anyone whose stupid enough to be around them safety. Charges should be filed for animal cruelty, shooting a dog isn't illegal in many places but wounding one like this jackass did and leaving it to suffer is. He'd be looking over his shoulder the rest of his or my life wondering when the payback was coming, think it's worth living like that? Seems to be a bit of controversy over the dash cam in his car too, I've heard he mugged for it by saying "hi Mom" into it. Hope his mom is proud about raising an inhumane bully.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

If you're too wussy to handle a barking dog in its yard while...

sitting in your vehicle, then by no means are you qualified to have a badge, much less a gun.

What would have happened if Joe citizen drove up on another's property, got out and shot a dog that was barking at them in the dog's yard? The police would have arrested them.

If a Democrat or RINO runs for president and says they're going to hold police accountable with serious punishment for violating citizens rights and/or being stupid with a gun, I'm going have to seriously consider voting for them.

Of course, I know they'll be lying, so there's that.

I can't take another dumb abusive cop video anymore.

Its farm country . .

and he's tasked to take the report at a farm. The dog was of a working breed commonly found on farms & ranches. They work livestock. They act as watchdogs. It wasn't an emergency. The dog shooter was tasked with taking a report several hours after the people called in. There was no reason he couldn't have called the dispatcher to telephone the farm owners to grab their dog before he left his patrol car.

He likely got out of his car, saw the barking dog & was scared of it, and immediately shot it.

Its obvious that they're hiring too many morons, cowards, and power mad sadists in American police forces today.

Why the Outrage?

The rules - brutally obvious since 9/11 - are as follows:

1) preserve and protect - the government and the established order
2) preserve and protect - officer safety

You, your dogs, your kids, your freedom, your property - are NOTHING to these rules.

What will be interesting is when the cops / militarized police finally encounter a situation where no. 2 and no. 1 come into conflict. Then they'll really know the breadth of their flawed system.

The Rubicon has been crossed.
