Cop Charged With Poisoning as Many as Six Dogs With Brake Fluid Chemical

Jean Strong | FilmingCops.com

An Ardmore, Oklahoma police sergeant accused of poisoning dogs has pleaded no contest and been ordered to perform community service at his own police department.

Barry Antwine set out plastic bowls containing a toxic chemical found in antifreeze and brake fluid, ethylene glycol, which can be fatal if ingested.

Children and dogs sometimes eat it because it has a sweet flavor. Antwine has to complete fifty hours of community service.

As many as six dogs were found dead after the poison was placed outside.

The charges against him were filed in May of 2014 and he was given a paid vacation, but he has returned to duty.

It seems the height of irresponsibility to give a sociopath a gun and a badge, which is basically a license to kill.

If he has already tried to poison dogs, what on earth makes them think he won’t shoot them?

It is a well-documented fact that those who kill animals for pleasure have very little trouble transitioning to humans. Jeffrey Dahmer, Herb Baumeister and Ted Bundy, among countless others, began their killing with animals. It is a huge red flag.


Ardmore needs to pull its head out of the sand and strip this particular exalted one of his badge.

He was scheduled to have a jury trial, but he entered a no-contest plea, which means that he does not admit guilt (of course not) but doesn’t dispute the charge. (Oh those pesky facts.)

The judge gave him a one year deferred sentence, unsupervised probation and a fine of $1,869. Animal cruelty is a felony in all fifty states.

Had a civilian done this, the penalty would almost certainly been much harsher. This is yet one more in a long string of offenses by those who are supposed to serve and protect.

Antwine has been with the Police Department since 2004. For the past 4 years he has worked as the resource officer for Ardmore Public schools and that assignment is up in the air, pending an investigation.

When he was in high school he was accused of inappropriately touching a fourteen year old girl. He entered plea deal in 1997 after he admitted to lewd molestation and second degree rape. He was eighteen and was given deferred prosecution.

He recently sued the city for not promoting him to sergeant! He claimed it was racial discrimination.

From the looks of it, this man clearly has a narcissistic sociopathic personality. It’s not HIS fault that he wasn’t promoted, SURELY it had nothing to do with his past actions, HE’S the victim here, poor, pathetic, picked on baby.

The nagging question remains: Who hired him and why? That person is culpable and should be held responsible as well. It is unforgivable for such lenience to be applied to someone who has absolutely no honor and integrity, and it appears, never had it even when he was a “child”.

The hate and distrust of police is only going to get worse as long as these sorts of events keep occurring.

The most infuriating part isn’t even the horrible acts themselves, it’s the appalling lack of accountability and perversion of justice that makes people so angry.

Then the cops have the gall to whine about how dangerous their jobs are and they are now scared to do their jobs. Ya think?

The responsibility for this lies with the cops and the supervisors and the city officials. If they keep on refusing to hold these guys accountable and throw the book at civilians for much less egregious offenses, they have nobody but themselves to blame. Man up! Take responsibility and FIX IT!

We must warn you, the video you are about to watch is incredibly disturbing. It shows the final moments of a dog’s life after it was poisoned. The owner can be heard weeping as the animal lay suffering, gasping for its last breath.
