Help tell the story. Then those dogs won’t have died in vain.
Kickstarter project. They need to raise $100,000 by November 15 for this to happen. I’ll be contributing.
You see what I mean about there always being a greater need? And this story really needs to be told — and needs the help of everyone who loves dogs and is outraged at the terror campaign badge-bearing thugs are conducting against them and their people. Because make no mistake, even if you don’t give a damn about dogs, this is part of the war being waged against the peaceable citizens of this country.
Oh, and even if you don’t give a damn about dogs, scroll down on that Kickstarter page and just look at those victims’ faces.
(Links for this came in almost simultaneously from two people. Thank you, 12bitphoto and Hobbit.)
Thanks, we sent our contribution. What I have seen and read about Puppycide has made me angry and disgusted and those are poor words for what I really feel.
leonard — Amen to that, and thank you. I also sent a contribution, then emailed Radley Balko the Kickstarter link in hopes that he’ll blog about it. I believe Radley coined the awful term “puppycide.” Even if he didn’t, he’s certainly done as much as anybody to bring this outrage to the world’s attention. He and his Huff Post readers could give that Kickstarter campaign the biggest boost.
Sad. Very sad. It is not only dogs….Seems a large percentage of cops have a asshole type attitude. I have run into that by trying to do the right thing in reporting suspicious incidents, only to be treated as a probable suspect. I have run into that in something as simple as asking a policeman if he could move his vehicle as he had me blocked in. Personally, I doubt if I would ever help a cop any more. the problem seems to be getting worse, not better.
Sent a donation, but couldn’t watch the vid or read the story. I haven’t gotten over jed’s link to the Shrek story yesterday. Larry’s reference to anger and disgust is a gross understatement for the degree of rage such stories cause me. I’m so glad there are people like you, Claire, who can rise above the horror and do good for those animals who need angels.
Thanks for posting this, I just sent in my little donation… and re-posted it on the FO F*c*book page. I have been sharing these Puppycide stories and videos there and I’ve gotten to where I’m scared to watch the videos or hear the audio of the shootings. The things nightmares are made of…
And that would be bad enough, but…
No permanent link to this blog post… but it is so horrifying…
10 Seconds to Die
Six seconds, in fact.
The police already rationalized the shooting of 13 year old Cruz on the grounds that he refused orders to to drop his airsoft toy, and turned around with the barrel pointed upwards yet vaguely in their direction.

Claire, as a dog & cat loving person, I could hardly look at this post.
My neighbor’s cats are gone…we thought it was coyotes. Turns out that it was kids with BB guns…
I fear for the day when the government will outlaw dogs as pets. It sounds absurd, but given this climate of thuggery, it is not far-fetched. If someone shot my sweet dog, there would be hell to pay. (Probably for me as I’d wind up dead or in jail.)
Contribution made, hope they can raise the $$.
Thanks! I’m keeping an eye on the Puppycide Kickstarter site. Contributions are moving up steadily, but still pretty slowly. They’re going to have to snowball for them to make their goal. I’m sure hoping Radley Balko picks this up; he’d do wonders.
BTW, I’m sure this was the first Kickstarter campaign some of us have joined in. I know I was little nervous about having to give financial info to yet one more website and commit money to a project that might never happen. But I discovered that payments are made through Amazon using payment info that’s already on file there. And it appears nothing gets debited or paid until/unless the campaign meets its fundraising goal. Pretty good way to go for anybody who’s wondering.
