Thank you to everyone who wrote letters, made phone calls and attended the court proceedings! Attorneys in the case noted the large amount of mail, email and phone calls received from supporters around the world and also noted that a number of ALDF supporters attended court proceedings.

Please send letters through ALDF’s website or by mail thanking Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway for doing an excellent job in evaluating the past histories of both defendants.

BACKGROUND BRIEF

(Wayne County, MI) Kristian Dennard Jackson & Decarlos Lashawn Young are facing criminal charges related to the alleged gross abuse of a pit bull in August 2010. They allegedly set the young dog on fire after a failed attempt at hanging her to death. A bystander was reportedly able to videotape this terrible incident with a cell phone camera. Investigators were unable to recover the dog’s body, it is believed that her remains were discarded in the trash and hauled away.

Such cruelty, and indeed the expanse of criminal activity that accompanies dogfighting, demands meaningful justice from the criminal courts, and local citizens are encouraged to actively show their support for this important prosecution.

    staring in the face of apathy
    we did not roll over and sit
    quietly
    we spoke our minds
    we said our peace
    our words were heard
    we will never cease!!!!
