Chief Severance,

August, 2014 your officers responded to a call. There is a video detailing an officer shooting of a 6 month old puppy. This video is very graphic to watch, but in order for us to get to the truth we must watch. After a short while on the internet…this video is going viral to show that the American citizen, people who have hearts are devastated and very angry with local police. You ask why? Watch the video and if you can ask that question following…then you won’t be signing this petition.

The video clearly shows how an officer from the Cleburne Police Department, Officer Kevin Dupre is calling the dog with kisses and a clicking/smacking sound.  The kind of sound that a 6 month old puppy associates with human kindness and play. As the 6 month old Maximus came running to the officer’s call….he was clearly wagging his tail and excited as though he knew he was going to get a treat or pat on the head. What happens next is horrifying. You will see Ofc Kevin Dupre coldly and callously aim his gun and shoot the dog numerous times killing him.

Another dog, a female named Cocoa, can also be seen in the video. the officer had Cocoa in his target sight…and the next bullet was fully intended for her. Cocoa originally ran from the sound of the gunfire…but stopped and turned around facing the officer. She stood there…and she did not know that she was next to die! Thankfully Animal Control called the officer just in nick of time to prevent her from being murdered in cold blood. Officer Dupre made claims that the dog was clearly aggressive and lunging for him. Well…he must have forgotten he was wearing a body cam. Because after viewing this video…it is quite clear the 6 month old Maximus in no way charged or seemed aggressive…but excited and playful.

There was another Officer there to back up Officer Dupre, Officer Carmac and at this point it is unclear the role this officer played in this clear case of animal cruelty.

We, the People of this country are ashamed, disgusted and damn right angry of the cowardly acts of this officer! You cannot turn your head on this one…this killing is totally unjustified and a vibrant young puppy died a horrible death. This puppy was loved and his owner Amanda Henderson was left devastated. The officer could have easily waited for Animal Control who was dispatched and trained in animal apprehension to arrive. Officer Kevin Dupre took it on himself to kill Maximus. You can tell that was his intent…as he called the dog out of hiding in a playful manner. “Here doggie”…..B-O-O-M!!!

We the People of this country are demanding that Officer Kevin Dupree be terminated immediately and charged with felony animal cruelty (which is now law in the 50 states, including Texas). We are calling upon you to take these actions without recourse.  What Officer Dupre did on this day is not different then the killing of a dog by a Raines County Texas Sheriff Deputy. That Deputy was terminated, charged accordingly, and agreed to never serve in law enforcement again. You cannot determine a difference in either of these shootings. They were both cold, callous, unjustified and recorded.

We the People are also demanding that the Officer pay restitution to the Henderson family in an amount determined by a jury of his peers in a court of law. Along with the restitution we expect a formal apology to the Henderson family from Officer Kevin Dupre.

We the People are also calling upon your department to launch a full investigation to determine the role of Officer Carmac in this killing. Upon conclusion of the investigation we expect this officer to also be reprimanded accordingly.

According to the witnesses and those knowing the dog, Maximus was not a dangerous dog, but a puppy who was out playing. Those involved in this shooting were wrong when they made the sound decision to shoot to kill. An officer’s duty is sworn to serve and protect…not search and destroy.

We the people demand justice and change. We demand all Law Enforcement to attend mandatory training on police/dog encounters. This has to stop…and stop now!

Stockton police are bankrupt, but paying officers to report Facebook posts

Listen to the latest Bad Cop News roundup with COP BLOCK

Stockton Police claim that due to bankruptcy in Stockton Ca. they lack the funds needed to respond to an array of complaints, and that certain crimes must be reported by victims, via a police reporting kiosk in the departments lobby.

Some of these crimes include 459 residential burglaries, 10851 Auto thefts, and 211 armed robberies.

We find it a JOKE that they claim the funds and man power are not available to them to respond to serious crimes such as these, yet they are paying at least one, if not a whole team, of officers to monitor a Facebook page dedicated to keeping their unprofessional actions in the limelight.

The Facebook page is the Stockton Police Department, Corruption Reporting Page.

 

Admins of this page have recently had a bombardment of Facebook notifications come in, and have had the page forcefully “unpublished” for “violating community standards”. The only time the page gets these notifications is when photos of Chief Eric Jones, or councilman Elbert Holman are posted with captions or dialogue beneath that either point out lies, or failures among the department or city leaders.

Stockton police officers make and average of $60,000 dollars a year. How much of that tax money is being used to keep these truths and opinions from the same people forced to pay for their “service”?

Please call Chief Eric Jones and ask him to justify these actions. Ask Chief Jones why his department cannot afford to protect and serve the citizens, but they can afford to monitor a Facebook page dedicated to exposing corruption within their department. Don’t allow tax payer to pay one more dime for censorship.

Call: Chief Eric Jones at Office of the Chief of Police (209) 937-8218

Please also call: Public Information Officer, Joseph Silva (209) 937-8209
