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.

198145 This is what happens when we let our law enforcement run hog wild for a couple decades without consequence. Now the cops ranks are filling with guys who have pulled 5, 6 and 7 tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. It's only going to get worse since these guys don't receive any kind of useful treatment for PTSD. BLAM!! "Uh... he moved real quick and I just reacted! Thought I was in Baghdad for a split second there. Oh well, at least they'll know I wasn't lying about my PTSD now." The cops are nothing more than hired goons who keep revenue coming in through citations and keep you and I in line through the use of violence. Don't you just love being free?

108200 If you do an internet search on how many dogs the cops have mercilessly killed in the past 10 year (since 9/11) you will see a pattern. They are being trained to kill all dogs. This one would be called a mercy killing, but unjustified, I think.

108202 So he knew his baton was a lethal weapon for this Dog, and how quickly do they reach for the same tool to use on simple First Amendment protesters? Do you see the intent to kill in their hearts (being kind to the piggy), of those they "swore to protect"? It always made me cringe when I saw the piggy use the baton on the Citizen. I knew they intended to cause serious injury or death with each blow about the HEAD on the lawful Citizen.

125168 Well we can easily dedude this is a complete crock, "Police officials have said the officers did not want to use their firearms for public safety reasons." Where is that concern when they're gunning down innocent people in their own homes or tazing people for minor traffic offenses?

7562 And what if this scumbag cop had accidentally hit a homeless person? Would he have let him bleed-out before attempting to get some medical assistance on the scene? Personally, I think this dumbass needs to be fired and criminally prosecuted... there are enough well-qualified people looking for employment that it should be no problem replacing him. He should be forced to hire his own personal attorney for representation as I'm sure that euthanizing an animal by beating and stomping on its head was not part of any training that he received by the Flagstaff police department.

207203 Sorry, but isn't there a leash law in this place? If the owners of the dog had been responsible and kept the dog in their yard/house and ensured it was leashed or under voice control when out of the yard/house their dog would still be alive. I see irresponsible animal owners all the time permitting their animals to run around "pooing and peeing" on everyone's lawn. What's really irritating is when the stray dogs come on my property and threaten me by snapping, growling and barking. That's always neighborly. No. I blame the irresponsible dog owners for this debacle. The animal suffered because they couldn't be bothered to keep their animal up.

173216 Those cops need to be fired and they will be lucky if they are not sued for the death of their dog. DISGUSTING behavior by those who are supposed to protect and serve.

174255 The police officer in VA had his case nolle prossed which means the commonwealth attorney opted not to prosecute. Shortly after that, another police officer in the same jurisdiction, while off-duty & riding his bicycle in the county, shot & killed a border collie puppy. He too was found guilty & his case is pending appeal. The cat officer is back on duty, the dog officer is suspended pending an internal investigation. Perhaps the AZ police officer should move to VA & work for this police department since it is apparently acceptable behavior.

97124 WOW... do you all know the officer? Heard his side of the story... know his history... know the man he is... Do you all have that much love of animals/ hate for man... I am sure glad your not on the jury... you have only heard what the paper says about what happened, and already have him fired/ in jail/ suffering... Peace be with you all... May you never have your name in the paper before your found innocent/ guilty! May I also wish you safety... because how you all feel about police officers... I hope you don't need them one day! I work hand and hand with officers daily at work. They are upstanding men/women who do PROTECT and SERVE!
