This petition had 21,258 supporters
Winnipeg Police Services Officer, Badge #2181, was seen on video mocking two women who came to the station to report their neighbour for allegedly punching his dog in the head. The officer responded "I've punched my dog! Sometimes you have to discipline an animal." He added "So, you're going to dictate how everybody disciplines their animals?" and "Oh, so we can't discipline anybody now. Heaven forbid." All of these comments were made in a mocking tone.
People need to know they can rely upon the police to enforce the legislation in the Criminal Code. This officer needs to be disciplined, educated about the fact that animal cruelty is an offence under the Criminal Code that needs to be taken seriously, and investigated for his claims that he's punched his own dog.
To the Winnipeg Police Board:
Whereas Officer Badge #2181 failed to take a complaint of animal cruelty seriously, we, the undersigned, respectfully request that he and the entire Winnipeg Police Service force be educated about animal cruelty, its impact on both animals and humans, and how to enforce the Criminal Code in this regard. We also respectfully request that Officer, Badge #2181 be investigated for his actions in response to this animal cruelty complaint and disciplined accordingly.
To the Winnipeg Humane Society and Winnipeg Police Service:
In relation to Officer Badge #2181's claim that he has punched his own dog, we, the undersigned, respectfully request that you investigate him for animal cruelty.
