Fire Baltimore Police Officers Thomas Schmidt and Jeffrey Bolger for Slitting the Throat of a Safely Detained Dog 

Two police officers in Baltimore have been suspended after authorities say they slit the throat of a Shar-Pei that had broken free from her owner's backyard and that had reportedly bitten a stranger. The dog, Nala, was seven years old.
The dog belonged to Sarah Gossard, who told police that Nala had slipped through a gate in her backyard, after which it was discovered by a woman who tried to get the dog home. The dog then reportedly bit the woman, resulting in a superficial wound. The woman then called police.
According to the charging documents in the case, Officer Thomas Schmidt and Officer Jeffrey Bolger responded to the call.
As Bolger got out of the police truck, a witness overheard him say, "I'm going to [expletive] gut this thing," the police report said.
Schmidt and Bolger struggled to get the dog under control, and Palmere said they had the dog restrained, tethered to the dog-control pole. Witnesses told police Schmidt held the dog on the ground while they saw Bolger slit its throat.
Police said that the knife used wasn't issued by the department. Officer Schmidt was placed on paid administrative leave while Officer Bolger, who is allegedly responsible for killing the dog, was released on "his own recognizance Thursday morning after being charged the night before with aggravated animal cruelty, animal cruelty and malfeasance in office." He has been suspended without pay.

Guess what we found out yesterday?
The little dog's name is Mona!!

We had a wonderful visit, but then we had to go back to Bentley's house. Boo Hoo!! I, Mona, was a brave girl and let Aunt Pam put my leash on but Prissy ran and hid behind the garage. Mommy always said I was her shadow and Weenie was her Velcro Dog but now looks like Prissy took over Weenie's job.

♥♥  Mona & Prissy

PS......Mommy says maybe we can come home for good next weekend. Keep your paws cross and the POTP coming that she gets good news ion Thursday.

Glad you had a nice visit with your mom. Know you all can't wait to be together again.

That is terrible about the dog. Too many police officers are cold blooded killers! They do a disservice to those who wear a badge with honor.
