Psychopathic Police Chief Kills Caged Dog For Sport

BY Herschel Smith

Raw Story:

Police Chief Andrew Spencer resigned this week after it was revealed that he shot and killed an innocent dog that was in a cage and meant no one any harm. To make matters even worse, he took the puppy to a firing range and killed it there because he did not want to deal with finding its home.

Spencer found the dog and managed to get it into a cage using a catcher pole. He then wrote in his report that he had planned to take the dog to a shelter where it would be “destroyed,” but then he got another call about a car accident so he decided to do it himself.

The report said that he had planned to go to “the cheapest vet to destroy the dog at the cost of the city.” However, the report continued “Due to the higher priority call and the imminent destruction of the dog, I decided it was best to destroy the dog and respond to the accident.”

After the fact, Spencer claimed that the dog was charging at people in the neighborhood. However, he said that he did not believe that the dog bit anyone, otherwise he would have had it taken to the vet and tested for rabies.

Also, at the time the dog was shot, it was in a cage and thus not a threat to anyone. If Spencer just had a little bit more patience and compassion, he would have found that the family of the lost puppy was looking all over the town for him. Owner Elizabeth Womack said that her puppy Chase was extremely peaceful and friendly animal.

Womack wrote on her Facebook page how she attempted to contact the police and was lied to on several occasions about the incident. Eventually, she was told by the police Chief that he shot and killed her dog, and that they would be free to identify him if they wanted to go dig him up.

Womack said:

“I was told by a police officer that they didn’t catch any dogs that day. He said they got a call about Chase, but responded to an assault call instead. So we called for a whole week trying reach chief Andrew Spencer. He did nothing but give us a run around for days. So we called all dog pounds and shelters and rescue one where we got Chase from. A few days later we get a call from chief Spencer, saying he had shot a pit bull chow mix that he picked up in the trailer park down the road from us. He told us He buried him in the sludge field if we wanted to make sure it was him. We didn’t find any freshly dug holes anywhere. So we tried the Sparta shooting range but we only found a pile of burnt meth pipes, cell phones and pill bottles. Then we found out from our neighbor on Friday evening that Chase had been picked up from an unmarked police car in front of our house. So we call and call and call trying to get a hold of chief Spencer again. To pick up our dog. Finally, 5 days later, chief Spencer contacted us saying he dug him up and left him at the police station. We picked him up that night after work. He was wrapped in a garbage bag, no traces of dirt on him or the trash bag anywhere. We got the police report. It never showed who he supposedly bit. So we took our fur baby home after searching for him for a week and laid him to rest.”

Somebody tell me the difference between Andrew Spencer, who wants to get out of this by merely resigning, and Michael Vick, who spent time in prison for killing dogs?  Where I am, the county police will come and arrest you if you shoot dogs.  To put them down you have to do it humanely at a Veterinarian’s office, where they fully sedate them prior to euthanizing them (I recognize the difficulties of being indisposed in the American redoubt or as a farmer or rancher who deals with this on a daily basis, but this cop wasn’t in the American redoubt).

So what was wrong with the dog simply staying in the kennel all night?  Answer: nothing.  The cop just wanted to shoot the dog.  He is a psychopath.  And a criminal.

    See so many stories about leo’s killing dogs for no reason.
    Perhaps the way to deal with this is if the local DA refuses to prosecute. Local citizens can find the officers address and make him feel the pain. Eye for an eye. Officer has no pets. No prob, harass harass harass. Flatten tires, cut phone and cable lines, maybe turn on hose and place through letter slot in his door. He has to work and shop.
    Drive him out of your dept, drive him out of town. Drive him mad. Make life for him unlivable.
    Maybe he’ll use his service pistol on himself.

    It does appear that puppycide is occurring too often in police circles, doesn’t it?
    I have to disagree with your implied ‘eye for an eye’ action; There is absolutely no righteousness in harming a man’s innocent pet–EVER. Remember that it is the human you wish to punish, not a loving animal. Dogs have a special place in this universe of sorrow: They give love freely when none is deserved, and require little love in return for it.
    The rest of it? Seems OK to me.

    Why does it “appear” that police are killing more dogs than they used too? I never heard of such a thing ’til a few years ago. It has a lot of folks kinda freaked out. Has training changed? Do you know why or at least have sense of why perhaps?

    So long as we both understand that there are ‘pigs,’ and totally righteous peace officers, I can accept your statement.

  6. On December 14, 2015 at 4:39 pm, Jack Crabb said:

    I refer you to Dr. Robert Higgs: ” The “good cop/bad cop” question can be disposed of decisively. We need only consider the following:

    A: Every cop has agreed, as part of his/her job, is to enforce laws; all of them.

    B: Many of the laws are manifestly unjust, or even cruel and wicked.

    C: Therefore, every cop has agreed to act as an enforcer of laws that are manifestly unjust, or even cruel and wicked.

    There are no good cops.”

    Mind you, I am not saying there are not good individuals that happen to have chosen the law enforcement profession, but I believe the above quote speaks for itself.

    Eat a dick, crybaby. If you don’t like the laws that were passed by our own elected officials per the Constitution, either work to change them the same way or just go move to someplace where there are no laws, like Syria or Somalia.

    Crybaby? Really?

    If you think that “the laws that were passed by our own elected officials” are Constitutional, you are not only fucking stupid, but clearly delusional.

    (Sorry, Herschel, I realize this doesn’t do much for courteous discourse, but this level of ignorance and/or stupidity should not go unchalleneged.

  9. On December 15, 2015 at 11:53 am, John Chisum said:

    If the laws are unconstitutional, why haven’y you or some other armchair patriot simply challenged them in court and proven it? One would think that if you can see it, any judge could, too.

    Yore a fucking idiot troll.

    Yeah, didn’t think you could give an honest answer or resist name-calling. Your kind is so predictable. But how is challenging one of your ideas or statements “trolling”? Are you one of those liberal kids who demands a “safe space” so that you can be protected from opposing points of view?

  12. On December 15, 2015 at 4:13 pm, Jack Crabb said:

    What, do you wear a magic-blue costume, John Chisum? Are you an Only One? Or just a good little cuckservative that can’t open your eyes and realize that the paradigm has changed?

    Who started the name-calling, assclown? I’m not going to give you the Constitutional education that you sorely lack as its available free on the interwebs. (But that would require effort and work on your part, so I don’t expect you to even attempt to learn anything about the US Constitution and our Founding Fathers.)

    I’m frankly surprised you come to the Captain’s Journal. It is a site which requires one to think and may, on occasion, challenge one’s long-held beliefs. But you just go on living in the past and thinking in the past. Bury your head in the sand and everything will be just fine, dumbass.

  13. On December 15, 2015 at 9:56 pm, John Chisum said:

    All that typing and you still contribute nothing to the discussion. Yep, you’re a liberal all right. If our Founding Fathers were here today, they’d kick you in the junk and dismiss you as a moron, because it’s clear to everyone that you know nothing about how our system works. Are you one of those militia members, too, Jack? Admit it–you’ve never served a day in uniform but you bought a rifle and your own BDUs and you fantasize about “the day” when you’ll run out and kill hordes of police officers and real soldiers, right? Probably hate minorities too.
    Do us all a favor and just get out of our country, Jack.

    In my book there are two subspecies of Law Enforcement Officer – Cops and Pigs. Cops enforce the law. Pigs consider themselves to BE the law. I love cops. I DESPISE pigs.

    I can accept that, without question. Good summation.

    In nearly 22 years of service in a dog-happy community (you live in Alaska, you have a dog–end of story), I NEVER had any need to shoot someone’s pet. I did have the luxury of a responsive animal-control unit, but I regularly worked during their off hours, and many was the time I had to deal with the problem myself.
    Anybody with half a brain can out-think a dog, and rare indeed is the dog that’s so vicious that a treat and a few kind words won’t turn it into a friend. As most officers own dogs themselves, only a psychopath would want to shoot one and have it die in agony right in front of him.
    Shooting the dog when it was already confined in a cage is the height of needless cruelty, and a clear sign of a twisted mind.

    Mace, not the chemical spray but the Middle Ages Weapon…. Nothing say *uck you like a mace in the face…
    But this is a personal observation mind you. I do not a advocate violence toward anyone unless they threaten you with physical violence, or yours of course.
    This Bozo has one hell of a personality issue. But then again do we not se this sort in a great deal of “police” who are supposed to “serve” the People???
    Just another one…..

    People willing to inflict suffering on domesticated pets are often just hiding thier desires to do the same to people. I wonder if anyone’s children have gone missing near this town
