Sasha, K-9 Officer

    1. Petition by

      R B


October 2012


After a Warwick, Georgia police officer left his K-9 partner, Sasha, alone for as many as three days in a police vehicle, Sasha died in the car. Ray Bedal started this petition on to call for an investigation; the petition gained more than 3,945 supporters and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation pledged to investigate Sasha's death.

In Warwick, GA, Officer T.J. Frye left his K-9 partner, Sasha, alone for as many as three days in a police vehicle. She died a horrible and cruel death. This has been covered-up by the City of Warwick and the Police Department. Proper procedures for notification were not followed; Sasha was not given a police officer's burial; the vehicle was not locked when this officer left town; the vehicle was not dusted for prints before being towed away; and the list goes on and on.

The people working to get justice for Sasha are being turned-away when trying to have their voices heard. Officer Frye has a very controversial record/history, and he should be punished for the death of his PARTNER. Sasha was a trained officer of the law. He is blaming HER for her own death, stating that she let herself into his unlocked Tahoe after he left town with no one scheduled to care for her.

The case was not made public until after the news was leaked...TEN days after Sasha's death. If anyone else had done this to a law enforcement officer, he/she would be facing charges. Justice for Sasha is needed, and the citizens of Georgia need your assistance.

      My hubby is a former cop and i know that a k9 is a police officer just like a cop. If that had been a human cop thear would be no question. But b/c its a dog well need i say more.

      Sasha should not have been forced to go through the pain she did, and die in such a horrific manner. She should have been taken care of. What kind of human being, let along police officer, forgets he has a dog-his k9 partner-in a hot car....that long.

      It is just cruel no matter how you look at it but like everyone else this was a officer who takes bullets for us and he was treated awfull by the person he was to trust and protect and for what death. Only for this man to walk away. I agree if it would have not been an officer this would have been punished immediately.

      The owner should be punished like any other citizen for police brutality...

      I have trained dogs for 20 years and never have I seen such neglect of a partner. Officer should be charged in her death.
