"After a break for a lovely dinner, Janet Moore, Head Deputy, Long Beach branch office at the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, presented the award to the Honorable Steve Cooley for his devotion to animal welfare issues and for creating the Los Angeles Animal Cruelty Prosecution program."
Dr. Gary Michelson gave money to District Attorney Steve Cooley. Gary Michelson also gave money to the current District Attorney Jackie Lacey. Now he's giving an award to Steve Cooley. The District Attorney went after Gary Michelson's ex-lover on criminal charges in return. I don't think the relationship could be any more obvious.
Above they state Steve Cooley created the LA Animal Cruelty prosecution program. No, he didn't. I was there in the very beginning in February 2005 speaking in front of public safety. If you go to the link above you can see it is city, not county. Steve Cooley's name is nowhere in there anywhere. The City created it namely LAPD Chief Bratton. The DA is County. This was created by LAPD's Sharon Papas, Jim Bickhart, City Attornery Bob Ferber, Commander David Diliberto of LA Animal Services and then council members Cardenas and Padilla who actually made the motion in 2005. Here is the City file. There is no Steve Cooley in there anywhere. How can Gary Michelson just make this shit up?! DA Steve Cooley should have told Gary Michelson to give him an award for something else. Why lie about something so obvious?
One main reason it was created was so officers can go to a site over an animal cruelty complaint and hopefully catch drug dealers, gang members and money launderers. It was a "foot in the door" so to speak. Plus, the dept wanted to get on Animal Planet's "Animal Precinct." Then they did this shitty raid which backfired on them. Edward Muzika and I helped Ron Mason with this unlawful and unjust raid. Video here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_kJ9nGiVis They dropped all charges. In the video they lie about what really happened. They did this as an audition tape to get on Animal Planet.
|Mean looking severed pitbull heads with home-cropped ears are the awards. They look like hunting trophies.|

|Someone sent me this pic. These awards look like these dog heads.|
UPDATE: I believe Aimee wrote this totally pro-pit piece because of Gary Michelson. Gary Michelson actually states pits are the best breed of dog. Then how come they've killed more people than any other breed? Gary Michelson uses his money to promote pits as pets. With so many other breeds also being killed in shelters, this does not make sense. I believe it's irresponsible. Pits are different than other breeds. You really need to know what you're doing and be very responsible.
Aimee Gilbreath then writes an article about pitbulls. She does not know what she is talking about. Aimee Gilbreath states “Pit bull” type dogs are no more likely to exhibit aggressive behavior than Golden Retrievers." This is misinformation and bullshit. I fostered a pitbull. I've been around pitbulls. I took dog man's pitbull class. I've spoken to Tia Torres about pitbulls. I've also been around golden retrievers. Apples and oranges.
I've never seen a golden retriever bite someone or fight another dog. I have seen plenty of pits do this. I could show some gory photos and videos but I won't. Pits have a high prey drive. They see something move, they go after it. When they grab it with their jaws, they do not let go. They have very strong jaws. They are territorial. If a little kid wanders into their yard, good night.
Modern day pits were bred for fighting. They are different than the pits of yesteryear. They have a high resistance to pain, can lose a lot of blood and still be fine. When I took the euth class you didn't have to premedicate them. You can shoot straight into the vein. They don't even flinch. I'm not saying we should kill all pitbulls. I just think we need to know that these dogs are different. They need special owners who understand them and won't put them in dangerous situations. I had a pit for a year so I know.
I personally feel there are so many dogs that will be killed in the shelter of all breeds. I personally would not bail out a pit again. I would bail out another breed. Golden retrievers, poodles are also being killed in the shelter. I do the same with cats that I bail. Pretty, sweet, young, purebred, long hair cats will be killed along with plain black short hair feral mutts. I will always adopt out the more adoptable one on death row. I give the public first chance. I just bailed a pretty cat that was on the red list. She's getting a great home. If I adopted a plain cat, I'd have it for months. I can save more animals if I bail the more adoptable ones. They're all going to die.
They honor Lori of downtown dog rescue. She deserves an award. So does Judi Mancuso. They had Capt. Louis Dedeaux, Director of Shelter Operations for South Los Angeles present an award. One, I think he's the director at West LA unless they moved him recently. Two, he is not a good person. He used Department funds to buy a dog bite suit. He gave the volunteers a class in handling dangerous cats and dogs. After the class he put on the dog bite suit and had his bred dogs bite the shit out of him while he laughed his head off. That's a $2,000 suit bought with department funds when they had budget issues. I was there and took that class at WLA. Dedeaux breeds purebred dogs which he sells to LAPD. I believe he is still doing this. I could be wrong.
In other news in their newsletter they are giving money to people to do research on giving cats and dogs herpes as a means to sterilize them. I don't think this is a good idea. I did some research into using STD to sterilize animals. There are too many bad things that could happen.
