Justice for Moses
If some of you have not heard, Moses is back in the animal hospital. He has an infection in his leg where the gun shot wound is and they blood flow around the area is not good. The blood flow is what will make it heal correctly and if it does not, they might have to amputate his leg. He is not in the clear by all means. Thank you for your support as it is greatly appreciated!
Thank you again for helping us out with Justice for Moses. I wish I could thank each one of you separately for everything you have done! Moses is still in quite a bit of pain, but we are trying to keep him as comfortable as possible.
Any updates today ?!
I have been very active in the Puppycide movement since Max the Rottweiler was killed in Hawthorne CA on 6-30-14. I was a speaker at the CA Freeze Don't Shoot rally on 10-25-14. I had the honor of meeting Jill Ryther, an animal rights attorney who successfully sued the Pico Rivera PD after they killed Chico Blue. I suggest you contact Jill at 818 347-4126. Another attorney who has been involved in several well known lawsuits is Adam Karp. Best of luck to you in getting Justice for Moses.
Hey, Moses! It wasn't much, but I hope it helps! Get better soon, buddy. Best wishes to you and your fam.
THANK YOU FOR THE PICTURE AND UPDATE ON MOSES, MY HUSBAND AND I AND OUR DOG ARE SO HAPPY TO SEE MOSES IN HIS OWN HOME RECOVERING. WISH WE COULD TAKE THE PAIN AWAY. WE'LL KEEP PRAYING. "JUSTICE FOR MOSES"
This whole situation sickens me as a proud owner of 2 dogs myself. This officer needs to lose his job. This would never happen by a Toledo police officer. Maybe the people of Woodville should hold a protest and demand his removal. What a ignorant ass. "The look in his eyes" was his determination to approach you and say "HI" like he does to everyone else he see's.
My sympathy to your family and Moses, A new movement in this country is beginning take form , peacefulstreets.com and cop watch, This is NOT an isolated incident . Across American law enforcement officers are beating, pummeling , and murdering the citizens of this country with impunity, totally supported by fellow cops , chiefs, and prosecutors. I beseech you Tom and Lauren to sue the cop, the city and as many entities possible. It is all they understand. Citizens of this country do have a weapon , video cameras. Whether it be a cell phone, a flip video camera, or a camera installed in your car, which can be done for as little as fifty dollars, every interaction with law enforcement needs to be recorded for you or your pets protection. This is legal , no matter what law enforcement tells you. Recently J. D. Tuccille of Reason.com wrote and I paraphrase. " You don't have to have an armored vehicle to be a jerk and a danger to the public. If you have the attitude that you are owed deference and instant obedience by the people around you, and that you are justified in using violence against them if they , (or their dog), don't comply, we have a big problem. Especially true if official institutions back police up which they do. If you think that everybody else should just do what I tell you, you're are wearing the wrong uniform, in the wrong country. And if you really can't function with some give and take ,( or a dog looking at you), a few nasty names, a little argument of the sort that people in all sorts of jobs put up every damned day , do us a favor quit. J.D. Tuccille entire article can be read at this linkhttp:// http://reason.com/blog/2014/08/19/police-officer-if-you-dont-want-to-get-shot, Hope link works, if not go to Reason.com. It's your constitution, but only if you defend it.
I called vet office n donated using care credit if anyone of u do not like putting card information online u can call the vet as well n donate I hope your fur baby heals n is not afraid of people because of this cop get well pooch
In a "nutshell" summarizing the longer comment I made on 13ABC's post of this story.......I have to say that 1) Policeman are trained to be aware of everything. Policeman in a small town SHOULD make themselves aware of the residents + the businesses in the area. Being a K9 cop anyhow, I would think this officer would AUTOMATICALLY be interested in a local dog, that went to work everyday with his owners & be familiar & aware of the Bischoffs & Moses. 2) IF there was any doubt of what Moses' intentions were, why couldn't the officer have fired a "warning" shot NEAR the dog. I have no doubt the dog would've retreated proceeding forward. Besides, this officer should've been more aware (knowing he works with a dog on duty anyhow) of dogs' body language period. 3) I DEFINITELY feel this officer/police dept should help with the veterinary expenses incurred for Moses' care & rehab. And lastly, I can only hope Moses wonderful demeanor (from the sounds of it)isn't adversely affected by this TERRIBLE incident.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed and anyone who has shown their support for Moses!!! It means so much to see everyone come together. We just got Moses home and we are letting him relax!
Ryan, the officer has admitted he is afraid of most dogs. So how and why he was appointed a K-9 officer is a mystery to me. Based on your reasoning, it is acceptable to shoot the dog just because he wasn't on a leash? Witnesses also disagree that the dog was acting aggressively. I agree that police deserve our respect, until they do something to destroy that respect.
These idiots with licenses to shoot should REALLY be required to become educated on the temperaments of dog breeds... It's a LABrador! What did it do, BARK?!? Move its tail from side to side?? Poor baby, this just sickens me.
also you can try Care Credit if your vet takes it if you need money asap
