This story blows me away. How in the world can we take this so lightly? It was an original felony charge that got reduced to a mistometer.$100 fine and 24 hrs of community service. By no means is this neglect IT'S ABUSE. I RECKON THE OLD SAYING WHAT COLOR NEVER LOOSES ? "BLUE". I'm outraged that this is being taken so lightly. We as a community have to speak out for those who can't. That goes for animals,babies, and disabled people. Or stuff like this will continue to happen. And I'm not going on and on because this is an officer,but that makes it worse. When choosing his perfession he knew his private life would be public. Our children look up to the police for help, they come to our house when we need them. But I don't think this should be a slap on the wrist. It would not be if it was the average Joe. Embedded in her neck. Abuse abuse abuse. And our tax dollars pay his wages and for this mock court hearing. Glad he can't have any more animals what about children??? Outrage is what it is.
