Justice For Rosie The Newfoundland, Part Two

Des Moines, Washington

2 Year Old Female Newfoundland Shot Dead By Local Police

Latest video: TV interview with the woman who was a witness to Rosie's shooting.
From the eyewitness to this horrific event: "As the witness to this event I will also say that Rosie never moved from her original position, they shot her exactly where she stood peering at me through the bushes. The officers were shooting at a still target in a fully fenced off yard. If I would have known that they were going to gun her down I would have stopped them. They should have told me.I would have let her stay in the yard for as long as needed. I also forgot to mention the officer chuckling as he explained to me that 'they had never had one this big before'. Not ever considering the danger and sadness they put upon my family. It makes me sick to my stomach to think this happened in our community."

Mighty nice RV that guy has in his comfy waterfront home. Maybe the DMPD should stop putting the losers there on paid administrative leave. He gets paid entirely too much. Time to cut the budget. I think we know where to start.

Please post the names of every public servant culpable for cruel acts toward man and animal.


The more public announcements of the names of PEDOPHILES, SEXUAL DEVIANTS and those who think to GET AWAY WITH ANIMAL CRUELTY - the less likely cops will be to perpetrate crimes against animals in the future.

I just added you dogs killing to my website today.

Your dog's execution is by no means an isolated event... It is a national epidemic.
