He sends a picture of their dead dog and then leaves a voicemail saying, "Youre next girl".
He made false statements to the police and he isnt charged with any of this?

I hope he gets what he deserves.

I had a case once where the guy used pliers to pull the teeth out of his ex's two little bitty dogs. These dogs were like children to this lady. One dog died, the other lived. He tape recorded the dogs screaming, and left her the tape. He also hid the teeth all over her house (in the pockets of her clothes, inside dishes, behind books, etc). He went to prison, and months later she was still finding the teeth.

As much as I love dogs and fervently wish that he gets thrown in a pit with 1000 rabid Chihuahua's, is it really any different than cutting a pigs throat? A chicken? I think he ought to be charged with a bunch of things, but animal cruelty doesn't seem to be the right crime.

It's a dog. It was his property. That is all. At the most... some sort of cash fine is all this sort of thing merits. The dog is not a person. Killing it is nothing more than a misdemeanor. Getting all emotional about it is irrational.

He also sent his girlfriend a picture of the slaughtered animal with a message saying "You're next!".

I'm not sure about you, but I'm willing to bet most folks would agree that slitting an innocent animal's throat for the purpose of threatening the life of a fellow human being is pretty solidly within the realm of what society considers to be sick, dangerously obsessive behavior.

Which is a wall you just made up. Lawyers keeping quiet to protect each other is on par with the local Ford dealer keeping quiet about wrongdoing by the local Nissan dealer. Lawyers love to tell on each other - nonlawyers just don't usually understand when there is something to tell.

Anyhow, in Kentucky this would result in at least 2 felony charges and permanent disbarment and he'd be less likely to get a break than a thug from the hood - judges often make examples of lawyers.

Either both were into showing/working the dog, and it had established championed blood lines worth serious coin. Or, because one partner dearly loved the animal and the other simply wanted them to hurt.

Check for a city/county/township dog license.
When they don't have one, ask who wants the ticket.

Call around, many places have programs that require no LE training, and you can even have a few things on your record.

I'm just your basic run of the mill patrol officer. There are others that make more and less than I but do the same job. They went through an academy, are state certified and don't need to use someone else's photos to pass themselves off as LE then call it trolling when they get caught.

Well you would also have to claim you are a deputy that works for your cousin who has been Sheriff for the last 12 years and you were on scene and took rounds to your patrol car the day two "SWAT buddys" were killed.

What was unexpected when people researched those facts and found there were only 4 Sheriff's in LA who had been in office that long and only one instance where 2 SWAT officers were killed together in that time frame. Amazingly the geography between any of those 4 SO's and the LODD's didn't match up.
