|police dog tore up car before he died|
Necropsy reports showed that Primo suffered from heat exhaustion, experienced at least three seizures after his temperature reached more than 108 degrees, and died while receiving treatment at the Southeast Veterinary Clinic in Metairie on the same day, the group said.The jails are probably overcrowded with people of color so this fuckwad gets a suspended sentence. He is what my father calls...felony dumb. I call him a pile of bat guano who should suffer the same fate as his canine partner did.
Images released by the Metropolitan Crime Commission showed how the dog shredded the seats inside the cruiser in an attempt to escape.
Lewis was sentenced to a six-month suspended jail sentence, six months of probation and restitution of $12,000, the cost to replace a trained police dog.
That would be justice for Primo...not a suspended sentence and six fucking months of probation.
Next up..the sumbitch who actually was a supervisor and trainer in the K9 unit at one point. The asshole known as Officer Randy Lewis...no relation they say..although I wonder:
In the other case, Randy Lewis was working an off-duty, private security detail on the evening of May 21 at the abandoned Charity Hospital building in downtown New Orleans when Phantom fell down an open elevator shaft.Lying about where and what he was doing should of been a tipoff on this scum-sucking bastard.
Furthermore, Lewis left Phantom’s body at the bottom of the shaft until morning. Anthony Radosti, vice president of the Crime Commission, said that police dogs are officers’ partners.
“Unfortunately, they don’t realize that he is a brother officer for all practical purposes,” he said to NOLA.com. “To leave him at the bottom of the pit strikes at the heart.”
Lewis then lied about the incident in a police report and stated that he and Phantom were on duty and working on a training exercise.
Eric Hessler, Randy Lewis’s attorney, said that an “error” was made on the police report when his client left out the fact that he was working a paid, off-duty detail. This is not, Hessler said, a crime. He also stated that Lewis’s decision to leave the dog’s body behind was based on safety. He said the shaft was flooded and it was safer for officers to retrieve Phantom in the morning.
NOLA cops just can't get good press to save their fucking asses can they? If they aren't killing their canine partners, it's unarmed citizens after the flood walls broke...and they all tried to lie and/or cover-up the crimes.
