J.J Deserves Justice

A neighbor shot and killed J.J. who was barely 20lbs and a pup. The neighbor was only ticketed as, according to the police, Arkansas Animal cruelty laws were repealed in 2009. I ask that the Animal Cruelty Laws of the State be observed and if truly were repealed to be put back into place. There is no just cause of the abuse or murder of the defenseless. I ask that you acknowledge these two parts of Arkansas Animal Cruelty Laws; 5-62-113 " law enforcement officer may make an arrest under the Arkansas Rules of Criminal Procedure and bring before a court or magistrate having jurisdiction any person alleged to have violated this subchapter" and 5-62-103 "a person commits the offense of cruelty to animals if he or she knowingly: (1) Subjects any animal to cruel mistreatment; (2) Kills or injures any animal owned by another person without legal privilege or consent of the owner" I also request that while reviewing J.J.'s case you think of all animals neglected or abused or murdered for the many excuses people have provided for doing so to those that are helpless. Please help bring justice for J.J. and all other animals in Arkansas who do not deserve to suffer at the hands of people.

      This is the update I received from a friend of J.J.'s family::

      "GUILTY!!! The man that shot J.J. was found guilty for animal cruelty. He was asked why he shot J.J. and he stated in court,"the dog didnt do anything, I just felt like I should shoot him." Pathetic. He was fined $500 and let go. We know the judge gave him the maximum fine, but because there are no laws in Arkansas the man paid the fine and went home. Sad very sad"
