BALTIMORE (AP) — A second Baltimore officer has been suspended while the department investigates his role in the slitting of a dog's throat, while the animal's owner says it took her days to find out how the dog died.

Court documents say Officer Thomas Schmidt held the dog down while a fellow officer cut the animal's throat on Saturday. Schmidt has been suspended with pay during the investigation, Baltimore Police spokesman Jeremy Silbert said.

Are there any mental health evaluations of any merit given to prospective police officers? These two are a couple of bat-bleep crazies. I wonder if they shouldn't be looked at for any unsolved murders of humans.

It makes sense to have psychopaths as street level enforcers in our Fundamentally Transformed country ... the Executive branch is now focused on political enforcement, but they need the thugs to bust heads out on the street.

Officer? He is evil. And his partner. Why the hell is he suspended ‘with pay’? They both need the same ‘treatment’ that they gave the dog.

Support Your Local Police

In this video Art points out that The John Birch Society has been committed to “Support Your Local Police and Keep Them Independent!” since the mid-1960s. We were successful in stopping Police Civilian Review Boards in the 1960s and 70s and in getting the federal government’s Law Enforcement Assistance Administration abolished in 1982. Today, more than ever, we need grassroots activists to continue working to keep our local police under the supervision of local elected officials and free from state and federal control. See our resources below for doing this.

QUOTE: “This is so criminal what’s happened,” said the 45-pound dog’s owner, Sarah Gossard. “It makes me sick.”

Just 45 pounds??? I’m no spring chicken, but I could pin down a 45 pound dog by the neck with one hand and eat a half dozen donuts with the other hand -at least until animal control arrived.

And he looks like he definitely has a healthy layer of blubber, I mean even a polar bear really has to work at it to take takedown a walrus.

Actually, most cops I see these days look like body builders just itch’n for an excuse to kick your or my ass.

I’m just wondering what would happen if you were carrying and caught a cop slitting your dogs throat. What to do? Shoot the cop? I would. Depending on the particular situation of course.

A person who slits the throat of a dog that’s not attacking him is a Sociopath. And so is the guy who holds the dog down so he can do it.

“Dog shooting had gotten to be old hat.”

It’s just a convenient way to get around having to file a report in connection with the discharge of a firearm. I look forward to reading that some good citizens rounded these guys up and slit their throats (after the spend a couple of years in jail with the guys that the arrested). As the police “spokesman” said, there are no words to describe this.

I would like to punch his ugly fat face. The dog was already restrained. She had identification. She was lost. She was scared. And this fat creep just murdered her. Rot in hell. If this guy can do this to a scared, helpless, RESTRAINED creature, he will do it to anybody.

You freaking pig. I'd like to see you beaten in the stomach and then all over with baseball bats. Then have your private parts cut off and stuffed in your fat mouth. Right before someone crushed your worthless skull.

In the name of G-d, how do you justify SLITTING THE THROAT of a scared lost dog? Is that what you would do with a scared lost kid, too?

It is terrifying that this psychopath is authorized to carry a weapon. I hope he and his partner are jailed for a very very long time and lose their jobs and pensions.

The left wants to disarm law-abiding Americans so that only the "authorized" may have weapons. If the authorized include the likes of people like this guy, is it any wonder why Americans are skeptical of intent?

Any bets as to how much other cops know about these two, but kept quiet for Team Blue?
