Cop Kicks Dog, Whips Its Body Repeatedly With Leash — Other Cops Stand Around and Watch

PEORIA, AZ — A deeply unsettling video has been uploaded online involving police abuse of an animal.

The video appears to show a police officer literally whipping a dog.

At one point the officer can be seen appearing to deliver kicks to the dog.

The person recording the animal cruelty wanted to remain anonymous.

Amazingly, but unsurprisingly, multiple other officers can be seen in the video standing around and watching the abuse of the animal take place.

None of them appeared at any time to stop the officer from harming the dog.

Peoria Police assured concerned viewers that they will be conducting an investigation into themselves to determine what happened.

We are guessing the officer will get some paid time off, if that.

Perhaps they will use the old “the dog was being aggressive” excuse in order to justify the action.

A witness said she heard the cop say “I know you’re in there, come out with your hands up!”

When she heard that, she was inside her home.

It is unclear if that was being said to her or to someone else outside.

In either case, the witness decided to grab her cell phone and start recording — a decision that proved to be wise, given what she was able to capture.

“It’s not at all what I thought I would catch on camera,” the witness said.

She was referring to witnessing the officer use a leash to whip a dog.

After the dog doesn’t respond to the whip, the cop then appears to get closer to the dog, whip it again, and then kick its body.

The dog appears to be small and is possibly just a puppy with a frail bone structure.

What she saw and what is shown in the video is an officer whip his own police dog with a leash. Then when the dog does not respond the officer walks up to the dog, whips it again and then kicks it.

“It didn’t seem right to me I have never heard of an officer stomping on a dog or whipping it with a leash,” the witness said.

“The dog looks like a puppy and looks terrified of him. I think the officer needs to be disciplined or spoken to at least,” she added.
