Hoopa Tribal Police: Sadistic Behavior, Shoot Dog As Target Practice

The Miraculous Story of Rex

The Miraculous Story of Rex

Abused, Abandoned, Loved, and Shot by Local Police, Rex Survives

"...Rex would arrive about the same time as the students and make his rounds.  He greeted everyone with a dog grin and a tail wag.  He allowed the kids to play roughly, even kick him, and he never harmed anyone.... Rex had been taken off by the dispatcher to a wooded area.  There, he had been shot at with a handgun in what appears to be a target practice torture session.  This is a break away from past practices where dogs that bit someone were to be quarantined for ten days observation..."

KILLINGS BY POLICE

Christopher Arrion Burgess, 16 year-old Native American boy. He was pepper sprayed by a probation officer who stormed into a house where Christopher was watching a movie with friends. EPD officer Terry Liles, who had pulled Christopher out of sleep about 3 years earlier (13 years old) and beat him until the boy's skull was fractured, chased Christopher on October 23, 2006, and shot him in the heart. Killed him. And this, after years of Christopher being systematically criminalized, and still being a kind and much-loved kid.
