The news is out: [A white police officer in Utah was charged with second-degree felony assault after ordering a K9 dog to bite a Black man who had complied with his command to raise his hands, prosecutors announced Wednesday.
The Salt Lake City District attorney’s office charged Salt Lake City officer Nickolas Pearce with aggravated assault stemming from the April 23 incident in which he ordered his dog to bite Jeffery Ryans after responding to a domestic dispute call.
Video footage released last month by The Salt Lake Tribune shows Pearce with a K9 dog approaching Ryans, 36, in his backyard.
“Get on the ground! Get on the ground or you’re gonna get bit,” Pearce says in the video.
Prosecutors said Pearce kicked Ryans in his leg and forced him onto his knees. Pearce then ordered the dog to “hit” and the dog bites into Ryans’ left leg for about 20 seconds while another officer handcuffed him, the video shows.
“Good boy,” Pearce tells the dog as Ryan shouts, “I’m on the ground. Why are you biting me?”]
Please remember that a good cop is one who hasn’t been caught yet. Jackbooted neo-Nazi confederate skinhead terrorist supremacist Neanderthals… in other words, cops are an extension of the KKK and white supremacy.
