Buzz Petition

Jennifer LeMay and her family were on a camping trip in Wisconsin when her two teenage daughters drove back home to Minneapolis before she did. One of them accidentally triggered the house alarm, and although the security company was notified and the alarm was turned off, police officers still arrived at the residence. What happened next was a shocking violent tragedy.

The LeMays’ two dogs, Rocko and Ciroc, both Staffordshire Terriers, were mercilessly shot by Officer Michael Mays in their own backyard. Mays claimed the dogs charged at him when he entered the yard, but the home’s security camera footage proved otherwise. The dogs were in no way lunging or posing a threat to the officer, and one was actually wagging his tail.

Ciroc was shot in the jaw, and Rocko has wounds on his side, face, and shoulder. Thankfully, both are back home now, but Ciroc is scheduled for surgery that could run from $5,000 to $7,000, LeMay said. Thankfully, the LeMays have received a tremendous amount of emotional and financial support from people who heard their story, but this should have never happened.

petition on Care2 addressed to Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau is asking for Officer Mays to be fired and demanding that all officers receive training on how to properly interact with dogs and other animals while on the job. If you would like to see justice served for Rocko and Ciroc, please take a moment to sign this petition.

And please share with your network to help spread awareness of Rocko and Ciroc’s story!

“The only difference between a dog, cat, horse and dolphin and a cow, chicken, pig and turkey is perception. One is no more valuable than another. And yet in this culture, we hold the former animals in high esteem and the latter we brutalize for food. All animals are deserving of respect and freedom from violence. The way to respect others is veganism.”

Signed already, but I\'ll say this here, too: the asshole that did this should never, ever be allowed to have a gun and a badge.

Not only should this uniformed bully get fired immediately but also made to pay a handsome fee to the family for their ordeal and costs made.

Michael Mays needs to be thrown off the force. I\'m not on Facebook, but if he is, and if you are, harrass the shit out of his department until it happens.

Mays is either a psychopath or a wus. Either way this cretin should be put down himself.
