The time will come when these cruel killers will answer to the people.
My suggestion is read the book THE WAR OF THE FLEA.

Here's his name.... Give the department a call and tell them what you think of this hillbilly fck....

"The officer, Brian Thierbach of the Sulphur Police Department, spotted Arzy and told the men to "get your dog," according to Carpenter. He said the officer watched him tie Arzy to a nearby fence with a 3 1/2-foot leash before Thierbach handcuffed both men, ordered them to the ground facing away from Arzy, and asked, "Is this dog going to bite me or attack me?"

"No," Carpenter said he responded. "He is an incredibly friendly dog."

Twenty seconds later, Carpenter told HuffPost, he heard a single shot.

Eric Midkiff, Southwest Daily News circulation manager, said his boss phoned him around 7 a.m., asking if he knew anything about the men in the parking lot. Midkiff "took off" and headed to the office, and by the time he arrived, "the officer already had Brandon and the other guy on the ground."

Midkiff, 33, told HuffPost he stayed about 20 feet from the men, and heard Thierbach asking if the dog was going to attack. Midkiff said Thierbach was standing on the bumper of the box truck petting Arzy.

"The dog was rubbing up against the cop," Midkiff said. "He would rub the dog's back and then push him away. All of a sudden, he just jumped down and shot the dog in the head."

Finally! Personally, I don't think the destruction of his career and a felony charge is sufficient punishment but it is at least a start. If a person is capable of coldly killing a securely tied, friendly domestic animal for the sheer joy of killing, what other atrocities is he capable of? Would anyone feel safe alone in this man's presence? The fact that he lied in an attempt to justify his actions shows he knew what he did was wrong. IMO, he should lose his freedom and everything he owns as well as his job. I hope the owner of the dog does sue him and wins, leaving that sorry SOB with nothing and no possibility of recouping. He should spend the rest of his useless life regretting his cruelty. In fact, I would hope he is left in such total ruin that he spends every moment of the rest of his life regretting the fact that his mother didn't abort him. The world would surely be a better place if she had.

I couldn't find any additional info regarding the outcome of the indictment against ex officer Brian Thierbach. Has he had his day in court yet? Jail time is probably too much to hope for but there is always the chance of total financial ruin. Let's hope social and financial devistation and the total destruction of his career are only the tip of the iceberg for this complete waste of space. May he spend every moment of the rest of his life alone in deep regret for his cruelty and inhumanity. Most serial killers begin their killing careers torturing animals prior to moving on to people. I have no doubt that is the direction Mr. Thierbach is headed. It would be prudent for his supervisors to look into any previous cases in which he was involved. He has proven himself to be a corrupt liar and the chances are small of this dog murder being his only act of corruption
