Cops Hit Dog With Patrol Car, Beat It To Death With Baton & Stomps Its Brains Out

Chris | InformationLiberation

In November of last year, we covered a story where a Virginia police officer euthanized a cat which was hit by a car by beating it to death with a night stick. The officer was eventually charged with animal cruelty, though another judge reversed the decision on appeal. Well, another such case has just happened, this time in Arizona, and the details are absolutely horrific.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports:
A Flagstaff police officer repeatedly struck an injured Sunnyside dog with a baton and stomped its head with his boot, according to an eyewitness who watched the incident at about 2:30 a.m. on August 19.

Police officials say an officer hit the loose dog with his patrol car when the animal darted out from behind a parked vehicle. However, the methods that the officer’s supervisor used to euthanize the dog have since come under scrutiny, triggering parallel criminal and internal affairs investigations.

Police Chief Kevin Treadway confirmed that Corporal John Tewes had been placed on administrative leave the day after the incident after another police supervisor brought the incident to light.

The Sunnyside resident, who has been interviewed by police, asked to remain anonymous to avoid the public attention that would arise from being identified. She says she watched the entire incident from her window as the injured dog was spotlighted in the street.

The woman told the Daily Sun that she and her husband heard their own dogs howling at about 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 19, and saw flashing lights outside.

Her husband went outside and saw their neighbor’s dog had been hit by a car and was sprawled out in the street. The witness said the dog couldn’t walk and was bleeding from its eyes and nose.

When the husband tried to tell the officer that the dog belonged to his neighbor and pointed to the home, he was told to go back inside.

“OK, sir. We’ll take care of it. Just go back to your house,” the police told her husband, according to the witness

Police officials told the Daily Sun the following Friday, Aug. 24, that they were unaware who owned the dog.

The woman said that the officer who hit the dog waited in the street with the animal for about 10 minutes until the second officer, later confirmed as Cpl. Tewes, showed up on scene.

The pair waited for another 10 to 15 minutes before the officers apparently attempted to euthanize the dog without using a firearm.

Police officials have said the officers did not want to use their firearms for public safety reasons.

The woman said she watched the supervisor extend his baton and then strike the dog in the head. She says she had to turn her head and look away, but continued to hear the thumping as the metal club impacted its skull.

“I saw him extend the baton and he raised it up and he struck the dog in the forehead,” the witness said.

“You could just hear the dog and then the dog got quiet,” she added. The dog started yelping again when the officer returned several minutes later and poked at it with the baton, she says.

More time went by and the officer placed his boot on the dog’s head and stood on it, then stomped down, apparently attempting to crush its skull.

The officer waited several more moments and then hit it with a baton, according to the witness.

“I turned my head and said, ‘Oh my god, I can’t believe he just did that,” the witness said. “I don’t know what he was thinking.”

Eventually, the witness said she watched the officer grab the dog by a leg and drag it to the patrol car.

The couple assumed that the police department would have notified the dog owners and were nervous to talk to them about it all last week.

When the witness saw the story in the Daily Sun on Saturday, she approached police her neighbors. [sic]

The dog owner told the witness that she and her family spent all week trying to find their dog and eventually were asked to identify its body at the Coconino Humane Association. A police investigator came and told them what happened to their dog on Friday.

Police officials declined to confirm any details of the witness’ account, citing the ongoing investigation.

Soon after the investigations were launched, police officials learned that Tewes might have also separately made threats against his ex-wife. The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office is now investigating potential criminal charges for animal abuse and making threats.
I don't know about you, but if I accidentally hit someone's dog with my car, I wouldn't think beating the dog to death with a baton and stomping its brains out would make the situation better.

I bet you this 'pillar of society' also likes to play with fire !
We need all 'public servants' to pass a psychopathy-test before
they are trusted to enforce ANYTHING !!

20886 Problem is the most disturbed of the sociopaths that are most attracted to such a position easily pass those kind of tests... I wish it were that easy...

The down and dirty of it is that this wackjob (and the gutless subordinate that sat there and watched him do it) would rather get brain on their boots than fill out extra paperwork. Didn't want to use their firearms for public safety reasons? How about take it to local HSPCA hospital, huh? I'm certain there was one near by....

The last time I hit a dog with my car, I called in to work and told them while I drove as fast as safely possible to the closest vet. I paid for the surgery (a couple hundred dollars of stitches and meds) and when the family found him, they were very grateful. Why couldn't the cop have been more compassionate?

6942 I hired law enforcement officers. Now, I don't know the process in Virginia or Arizona but in my California agency a candidate for a peace officer job must successfully take and 'pass' two written psychological tests and at least one interview by a pyschologist; take and pass at least on oral interview by a panel from other agencies and pass at least on more oral interview in house.

Then the officer is assigned a field training officer who completes a written evaluation of the office each month for one year. At any time during that year of probation the candidate can be terminated - no cause is required and s/he is told only, "not everyone is cut out for the job. Sorry, give me your ID card and badge"

24239 Based on the myriad of documented cases of police brutality which have been growing exponentially day by day, it is my opinion that law enforcement agencies don't want "normal" human beings who display concern, care and have the ability to feel empathy but rather are actually looking for recruits who display sociopathic and psychotic tendencies and are actively seeking out those who's psychological profile positions them as such based on their evaluation.

In other words if one passes the police psychological testing as "Normal" you can forget the academy and hit the bricks.
However, if one takes the police psychological testing and is found to be "Sociopathic" or "Psychotic", then welcome to the club.

This is not meant to be trite or lampooning or funny...I"M DEADLY SERIOUS !!!

96225 Mob rule is not the answer, are all people involved trust worthy. How about forgive the cop and move on with life. He may have done that because shooting it would also brought the animal nazis out, in the country we always put down animals with a bullet when they get old and cannot function. The story goes as follows she said he said. In the end no humans got hurt and someones dog was dead, the cop is innocent until proven guilty.
Also pray for the cop that he won't destroy other peoples property... in this case a dog.... the hate over this is insane. It is what the Government wants, same goes for Batman killings they didnt put him to death because he gets media attention. Another thing to look at.. if a dog is an insane killer it is put down.... same should be for a human. Forgiveness is the thing we lack most in America

6863 What a violent, cruel officer! And to hide the killing? They should both be gone! Both officers need removed!

201223 What is shocking - they do this to human beings, why not little dogs and cats. The first requirement for a cop is to be a psychopath.

Because you're a nice kind decent human being unlike these sociopathic scum cops!

82196 There is no need to be cruel when putting an animal down. An injection is all it takes. Oh, and I'm not talking about the poor dog!

Posted: Sep 09 2012, 9:29 AM

82196 US cops have access to body armour, tasers and guns, but some still seem terrified or needlessly cruel in confrontations. Ease up on the steroids and get male hormone medications. Your balls are shrinking and it is starting to show!

10872 Why doesnt the chicken shit animal rights do some thing about that torture. Maybe I will become a police then I can torture @ kill anything @ get away with it.

1845 Makes one wonder what he has done to humans in the past. Sick - sick - sick.
If he wants to be barbaric, then chain him to a wall in a public square and let citizens throw rotten vegetables at him for a month.

65100 they would do and have done the same to people. six of the worthless shit bags beat a homeless man to death about a year ago. to bad somebody didnt "bust a cap" in his worthless ass while he beat the dog to death. police state. coming soon to a neighborhood near you. arm yourselves and be ready. i know i am.

18478 Sick, he should be fired and if he doesn't a good protest would be in order with this story being headlined on billboards across the city. Where does it say u can kill a dog and think its ok? What has become of society, seriously?

Posted: Sep 09 2012, 12:58 PM

I spent the night in an LA County Sheriff substation and a barking dong was tied up outside the door. Every policeman that came in the door said, "Somebody ought to shoot that *** dog." I won't repeat the variety of cursing they used. These were brutal people.
