Demand Justice for Max, Rottweiler Shot by Police

Hi everyone. A few years ago, I was saddened when I mentioned my Malibu incident, there were members on here that asked what did my incident have to do with this community's platform, extending no empathy whatsoever.

I stated my petition was for protecting people's pets as well as their own safety when being pulled over on the road by law enforcement.  

Today I receive the following story for you all to see that just as police can be abusive to people, it is true of animals as well. There are many honorable law enforcers out there, but we must be aware of those, who are not.

And please sign this latest petition I received from of the incident dealing with law enforcement abuse of a person and an animals. It is important that you sign this. The more people speak out, the less room for abuse.

Dear Monique,

As Hawthorne police were engaged in a standoff with armed robbery suspects, a bystander decided to videotape the event. Police handcuffed the bystander for filming the event and allegedly refusing to turn down loud music in his car. His dog was put in the backseat of his car.

As the police officers were handcuffing the man, his dog Max, a two-year-old Rottweiler, jumped out of one of the car windows. The officers attempted to grab his leash, but failed. Then one officer fatally shot the dog four times.

At what point will we realize that family pets are exactly that - a part of the family? There have been numerous cases lately of police indiscriminately shooting family pets the moment they think they are in the slightest danger.

Please sign this petition, created by dedicated Care2 member Heather, asking for justice for Max and for proper education for police officers about how to protect, not kill.


Thank you for taking action,

Emily L.
