Man Purposely Runs Over And Kills His Chihuahua


To Whom It Concerns,

I read about the shocking video: Man Purposely Runs Over And Kills His Chihuahua; the Los Angeles Daily News has just released a sickening video, recorded on December 28, in which a Hawthorne, California, man is seen purposely running over his own Chihuahua, then driving away while the tiny dog is left dying in the alley.

After seeing the video a few days ago, police arrested 45-year-old Michael David Parker, but he was quickly released after he posted the $20,000 bail.

Parker didn’t deny that he is seen on the gut-wrenching video, but claims it was accident. Hawthrone police Lt. Scott Swain disagreed, saying, “You can see him swerving toward the dog. (…) He’s a little poor defenseless dog and the guy just runs right over him and leaves; he doesn’t offer any help.” The body of Cow Cow, the poor five-and-a-half-year-old, male Chihuahua was found by a resident several days after the pooch’s death; said resident had a video surveillance camera pointed at the alley and made a police report after reviewing the tape.

“Parker is scheduled for arraignment March 25 at the Airport courthouse in Del Aire,” writes the Los Angeles Daily News. The video of the unbelievably cruel incident can be found here, but viewer discretion is highly advised before watching it: Source: Examiner/ Victoria Somorjal/

I ask you :
– No plea deals,
– maximum sentence
– let’s get him fired

Thank you for considering this urgent appeal.

there are just some things for which
words can never suffice.
how do you define a heartless
man, of soul cold as ice.
a man at large, killing an innocent so small.
there just are not enough words at all.

    Start with being vegetarian and proud to talk about it with others…offer them food that tastes good. I just fed Chicago Sarge of police at my house a big veggie dinner that he loved. He was good in bed too.

      What’s does that, if ANYTHING, have to do with what happened to that poor little dog????? What do we care if you had sex with the entire police department???? You’re just as big of a nut if you’re so cold hearted if that’s all you wanted was to brag about having sex with someone! FOCUS! FOCUS!!!! That poor dog needs our help.

    There’s no way I could watch this video. I know me and after crying my eyes out and having horrid nightmares, I’d might have to go find this puke and run over him! Purely by accident you know!!!! So! I will not watch it! But, I am going to say that I am so thankful that that gentleman had the brains to check his video surveillance and the heart to call the authorities. A HUGE THANK YOU. And I’m glad that with todays technology this atrocity gets out to the public, where we can have the ability sign this petition. A HUGE THANK YOU TO YOU ALSO. And may we be able to make a difference so that poor little dog may rest in peace.

      Thank you so much, Selena. I appreciate your comments and participation. I don’t watch the videos anymore either. They are sleep robbers and totally tragic and horrific. They haunt me to this day; my sleep is interrupted from past videos so ‘I just cannot watch them anymore. I completely understand your position. Thanks again.

    Those without wealth may one day prosper, but those
    without kindness are utterly and incurably poor—-

      A perfect verse describing the horrible cruelty that animals endure – people have no compassion, empathy, or kindness. Thank you, Arthur, good to see you.
