OUR DOG NAMED "DUDE" KILLED IN PEOPLE'S PARK ON 7/21/12; JUSTICE FOR DUDE!!

His name was "Dude". He was a dog. He was owned by Wesley Simmons, a summer traveler in Berkeley. Dude was a beloved member of the People's Park community. 

 

     On July 21, 2012 at 12:30 a.m. Dude was chained to the water spigot on the west end of People's Park near his owner, Wesley Simmons. Uniformed UC Berkely officer Kevin Doughty came into the park near Wesley and Dude barked. Officer Doughty pulled his gun and shot Dude twice killing him instantly.

 

     People in the Park feel this is ONE MORE ACT OF INTIMIDATION OF PEOPLE IN THE PARK LETTING THEM KNOW THEIR PETS CAN BE KILLED IN THE PARK WITH NO ACCOUNTABILITY AND IS ONE MORE STEP TO KILLING ONE OF THEM. Every person we talked to said the UC Berkeley Police has been even more aggressive than usual trying to intimidate the people in the park. This is an on-going problem and is perpetuated by UC Berkeley Police as well as Devon, the director of the People's Park.

 

      Witnesses Richard Knowles and others have confirmed that Dude was chained up when he was killed and there was no reason to kill Dude other than the fact Officer Doughty could do it.

"When I was a "police officer" back in the early '70s the transformation was just starting to take place from a mentality of a public servant working for the citizens to "law enforcement". The first I noticed of it was when the police departments started preferential hiring of ex-military people returning from Viet Nam. They started introducing military tactics into the department, including the first S.W.A.T. team. They quit referring to people on the street as citizens and started calling them "civilians", or more commonly "assholes".

"They looked for opportunities to use their new toys provided from "federal assistance" monies in the war on drugs. They changed the uniforms from the blue-suited cop with an 8-sided hat with a shield on front to a set of black or navy fatigues and a ball cap. They started shaving their heads and pumping iron. They gave up on the idea that they put themselves in the line of fire to protect and serve the public and took on a combat marine attitude of protect their own above all else. I've known them to murder cop-killers in the street, but have a could-care-less attitude when a civilian is killed."
