This officer’s shockingly inhumane actions violate both police department policy and Virginia’s anti-cruelty laws, which clearly states that any person who “cruelly or unnecessarily beats … any animal” is committing cruelty to animals.

Contact Harrisonburg city officials now to demand that this officer be immediately suspended from duty pending investigation and dismissed from his position. We have appealed to the Mayor and other city officials to immediately remove this officer from duty, but we need your help to show them that cruelty like this will not be tolerated in Virginia.
