The dog had gotten away from its owner and was likely scared, it nipped a person who tried to help it so the copfuks rolled up. The dog was detained with one of the lasso poles but then the copfuk felt the need to slit the throat of the detained Shar-pei right there on the spot in front of everyone.
It was so outrageous, commissioner copfuk doesn’t even try to defend this cops actions. This psychopath copfuk’s goose is cooked; it sucks that a dog unnecesarily died but on the positive side, this sociopath showed his true colors and it is likely future lives were saved by the fact he won’t be a member of the gang in blue.
Baltimore police officer charged with slitting throat of dog that had already been contained

In the case of the dog’s death, Baltimore police Deputy Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez said there was no “viable” way to justify the veteran officer’s actions, which took place in the 700 block of Grundy Street in Brewers Hill.
“We have no words to describe this,” he said.
On June 14, police said, Nala got loose and bit the hand of a woman who tried to catch the dog. Palmere said the wound was superficial. Officers from the Baltimore police’s Southeastern District detained the dog and summoned emergency services officers to the scene.
The emergency services unit handles many duties including assessing barricade situations and providing police crime-scene lighting.
They also carry the long dog-control poles, which can lasso stray dogs safely, Lt. Eric Kowalczyk, a Baltimore police spokesman, said.
The Shar-Pei was detained with one of these poles, police said.
At some point, one of the emergency services officers then pulled out a knife and slit its throat, Palmere said. The dog died from its injuries.
“Officers were appalled by what they saw, as were other citizens,” Palmere said.
Rodriguez said no motive or provocation could justify the act. The dog poles are meant to keep animals safely at bay for detainment and the department had “gone through great lengths” to train officers on how to handle almost any situation involving dogs.
“There is no procedure or training that justifies this behavior,” Rodriguez said.
Police did not release the identity of the officer, who they said was being booked Wednesday afternoon. They did not disclose the owner of the dog, either.
