Badged Serial Killers: The Growing Murder Culture of Cops (Part I) by Bill Buppert

The below was posted to ZeroGov.com by Bill Buppert on February 13th, 2014. As is noted, it’s the first of a five-part series, all of which will be cross-posted here in an effort to get the ideas shared in front of more eyes and minds – something that is needed before action happens because, as Buppert correctly notes, “Police will not ever police themselves…ever.”

Publisher’s Note: This is a five-part series that investigates the growing death culture of the American cop and the predator prey relationship between badged thugs in the pay of the King and the following victim classes among the Helotry that is America:

Part I: Dogs and other Animals
Part II: Children
Part III: Women
Part IV: The Elderly
Part V: The Disabled

I want you to pay particular attention to the incidents where the police laugh or joke about their maiming and killing because there is no better casual indicator of the depravity and psychopathy that is modern day policing in the USSA.

Make no mistake – you do live in a police state. Please be sure to update me on local incidents you can call to my attention. -BB

“He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.”
― Immanuel Kant

Yet another dog is murdered by cops.  A service dog, no less.

The advent of film and video footage has revolutionized the ability of the general public to see how the police behave in real life and not the sanitized Disney version that Hollywood and its sycophants in the mainstream media have portrayed.

Sir Robert Peele’s principles are long dead and buried in US law enforcement.

This particular one is indeed extinct:

“The police should use physical force to the extent necessary to secure observance of the law or to restore order only when the exercise of persuasion, advice and warning is found to be insufficient to achieve police objectives; and police should use only the minimum degree of physical force which is necessary on any particular occasion for achieving a police objective.”

The American law enforcement community has experienced a sea change in the last half century that has made the police the greatest threat to individual subjects in North America. In the end, liberty and freedom can only be taken if the enforcement mechanism of bad laws and totalitarian edicts is active and engaged. The risk of death by cop is far greater than any foreign-borne terrorist threat or most natural disasters and ironically, 2013 is one of the safest years for cops themselves in decades despite the silly “hero” rhetoric drummed in by the government media complex.

Will Grigg has written eloquently and extensively on startling detailed anecdotes of the police state in action throughout the fetid plain. I have contributed some observations on the state of police misbehavior on a grand scale but not so much as other observers.

Something strikes me about the spate of dog murders by cops that have emerged in the media in the last decade. The officer safety madness is a large part of the reason for the devastation and lethal effects of modern policing and the trail of tears of the maimed and murdered bodies stacked up by the badged bullies. As we have become accustomed to the double standard, the epidemic of police shootings of dogs stands in stark contract to the injury and killing of “police dogs” as assaults on an officer and treated as such. Again, ensuring that mundane being drained by taxes to pay the salaries of the statist police are always treated as second-class citizens even to dogs (if badged).

Some observers have suggested a linkage of animal abuse into adulthood: “Douglas, Burgess, and Ressler looked at the lives of 36 serial killers to determine whether they shared any behavioral or psychological traits. They found that 46 percent of the serial killers in their sample had demonstrated cruelty to animals as children, while 36 percent demonstrated similar cruelty during adulthood.”

Ask yourself this: if you have serial killer tendencies, how do you hide in plain sight and quite literally get a state-granted hunting license? Become a cop.

Are there widely accepted precursors to serial killer behavior such as cruelty toward animals and a casual disregard for their welfare?

When counselors at several federal penitentiaries evaluated inmates for levels of aggression, 70% of the most violent prisoners had serious and repeated animal abuse in their childhood histories, as compared to 6% of non-aggressive prisoners in the same facilities.” 

The casual disregard for the lives of animals by cops is fairly commonplace as well as human life if the past decade of cop-on-citizen violence is any indicator.

As criminal profilers pointed out, around 99% of the serial killers start showing cruelty to animals even from an early age. What makes matters worse is the fact that their families do not notice this negative behavior or perceive it as child’s play. More often than not, hurting and/or killing an animal demonstrate the need to take control and dominate.”

It would be necessary to establish that most of these police dog killers have this tendency at a tender age but the increasing incidence of this kind of abuse raises some disturbing possibilities.

One dog murder by cops gives a clue to the mindset involved:

“One he didn’t even think twice. He just stepped back and took out his gun and shot her twice and stood in the street and laughed about it.”

Another cowardly incident in New Orleans where the cop (of course) lied on his report of the dog execution.

“He fires (at) the dog in retreat,” said Jeff Dorson, executive director with Humane Society. “Why do we know this? The bullet wound. The entry and exit were in the side, and it wasn’t a dead-on shot in the front.”

The cops laugh after killing a three-month old puppy in San Antonio here.

Even restrained animals are subject to instant liquidation by the badged bureaucrats:

“Moments later the animal, named Cammie, barks at officers and struggles to avoid a hook attached to a long, metal rod. Once police stopped trying to snare the animal, it laid down quietly. Upon second attempt, police successfully restrain Cammie, who struggles but then stands motionless, looking away from the officers.

That’s when LaGrange Police Officer Doug Howell drew his weapon, aimed and fired a single round into Cammie’s chest, dropping the dog immediately. Shortly thereafter she began wagging her tail, so the officer put another bullet in her head.”

Cats are not immune to the bloodthirsty treatment of animals by cops:

Two officers acted accordingly and shot the cat dead. What enraged the cat’s owners is the fact that it was never checked for identification tags neither did the officers attempt in any way to determine whether it was a stray or a pet cat.”

There is a pattern of conduct emerging that speaks to several factors.

Modern policing in North America now uses officer safety as a mindless mantra to justify disproportionate response to real and perceived threats to their person and safety.

I will cover police abuse of children in a future essay which bears a grisly resemblance to the war on the innocent that dog murder entails.

The stories are legion but this incident is illustrative of the vicious and lethal mentality of cops in America today:

“As Vidal Collapsed backwards on to the floor the two officers jumped on top of the 5ft 3 100 lb Vidal to restrain him.. As Vidal’s Father tried to step in and grab the screw driver The Southport Police Officer that had instructed the other officers to use their tasers, moved between the father and the pile of people on the floor and said ” We don’t have time for this” And shot Vidal Once in the chest as the other two Officers held him on the floor. Vidal’s father then grabbed the officer as he was lining himself up for another shot.”

Yet another testimony to why no one in their right mind should ever call the cops.

I would suggest that the increasing violence toward animals is yet another harbinger of things to come in the future as the American police state becomes more and more violent toward ordinary citizens and anyone it sets its sights on.

One can suggest that any broad cross-section of the working population in particular occupations would create serial killers and the police profession would appear to have a few of their own:

Manuel Pardo, a former Florida police officer turned serial killer who was executed Tuesday, was one of the latter, officials say. He shot nine people to death in the late 1980s, claiming he was a ”soldier” ridding the streets of the wicked.”


Police are considering the possibility that the serial killer who has dumped at least eight bodies along a Long Island barrier beach may be an ex-cop or other law officer, law enforcement officials familiar with the case said.”

The notorious killers like Gerard John Schaefer even practiced their serial killer temptations on patrol.

I would also suggest that the brutality demonstrated in the video of this young homeless man being beaten to death is emblematic of the tendencies among the constabulary in America.

I think about the very real possibility of institutionalizing serial killer ethics and behavior is becoming the rule and not the exception in American policing. Much as child molesters and voyeurs would sign up in droves for the chance to be a TSA enforcer gaping at and laying hands on innocent travelers, there is no greater opportunity for a serial killer to practice their craft in America than going to the academy and getting the badge. They would have a license to kill and qualified immunity that would get them through the bad times at taxpayer expense.

The “heroes” that fired 103 rounds into the wrong pickup and wrong gender and did not kill the two female occupants. The police investigating police concluded and “found that the officers were not at serious fault in trying to kill two innocent unarmed women and unleashing a wall of lead on a vehicle.”

Police will not ever police themselves…ever.

There is now a close race between private serial killers and the professional class emerging in American policing to see who can field the greater army of murderers. Much like the terrorism moniker fitting the protector in America more than the actual stated target, the fabled cops are becoming the very thing they supposedly hunt.

Murder begins where self-defense ends.

The spate of animal slaughter by cops may be an unpleasant precursor of misery to come for the citizens being administered by the “serve and protect” crowd.

    So you get trolls on this page too huh? Or possibly cops policing what you write. Wow, they’re everywhere. My father in law was LAPD for 30 years, I can definitely corroborate the animal cruelty part of your article – I’ve heard many stories of torture and killing of animals, and it’s always told with this underlying normality – like it should be acceptable because after all cops are above the law right? The brotherhood protection, all that – yes, accurate. Good article.

  • Certain

    The picture with the Rottweiler above doesn’t belong. It was the fucking moron dog owners fault, when he decided it would be a good idea to take his dog into an ACTIVE hostage scene to take pictures. Dog died because the dogs owner was a stupid motherfucker. Still aggravates me. They took the guy into custody and the dog kept lunging at the cop. Cop didn’t shoot the first few times, just tried to get the dog to back off.

  • Rafael

    After seeing & experiencing the unsolved murder of my eldest brother and knowing crooked cops had a hand in it & the widespread corruption of police officers in southern AZ I’ve decided to fight back with fire power (literally) from the American public. Arming americans will be the only way to fight back due to the unfair and corrupted laws that go into play to protect these serial killers we call cops. Police in AZ beware. We are gunning for you.

    I’m the first to bash?????? You, pal, are the stupidest moron to post today. Why don’t you review my past posts before letting such stupid and ignorant swamp gas bubble up out of your tonsils. Idiot.

    What I do like to do is call bullshit on stuff that is bullshit. Which I did, with the Rottweiler pic. Look up the story, moron, it happened in Los Angeles. Wasn’t any kind of “serial killer” execution of a dog.

  • freedom

    Certain, you sir are a fool. Firstly the video clearly shows that this guy was not hindering police. From a distance of 100 meters, it is impossible to do that, unless your in a road train. Secondly, the guy had put his dog in the car, so obviously not to stupid to take a dog into a hostage scene. Unfortunately it escape, then tried to help it’s master. And thirdly, you are missing the point to the story, which in this case clearly shows you support fascism.

  • SFCRetired

    I suppose the cop apologists on here are going to say the cop in Georgia was justified in murdering a 17-year-old because he answered the door holding a video game controller? Never announced who they were; just knocked on the door and, when he opened it, shot him in the chest, killing him. You apologists need to go to some of the other sites that document police abuses and read the daily events where the police beat people to death or shoot them for no reason. We won’t even get into the plethora of animal abuse cases involving police officers. The human abuse is all too evident.

    Hey freedom, you fucking a stupid moron, you know? So was it the cops fault the dog escaped from the car? No, because fuck-stick shouldn’t have been there with a dog. And because fuck-stick didn’t secure him in the car properly. Which he wouldn’t have needed to do if he hadn’t taken the dog with him in the first place. And don’t fucking lie about the video, moron. He was nowhere NEAR 100 meters away. More than a football field, huh? Fucking idiot. And you’re going to call somebody else a fool. LOL. That poor dog died because his owner was a fucking idiot. He should have been charged with animal cruelty.

    This article seems to be another ridiculous rant bashing police officers. I do agree with t.

    t, says, “Loses all merit with “police state” and “pay of the king” crap.
    Just because someone wrote an essay or a book doesn’t mean it is true. Don’t just read the things that back what you like. Read everything. The colorful language the author uses shows a total disrespect for law enforcement.

    The author says, “Cats are not immune to the bloodthirsty treatment of animals by cops:
    “Two officers acted accordingly and shot the cat dead. What enraged the cat’s owners is the fact that it was never checked for identification tags neither did the officers attempt in any way to determine whether it was a stray or a pet cat.” Where is the real story to back this up? Is there a link someone can post to back this statement up?

    The author says, “The risk of death by cop is far greater than any foreign-borne terrorist threat or most natural disasters and ironically, 2013 is one of the safest years for cops themselves in decades despite the silly “hero” rhetoric drummed in by the government media complex. The first statement is absolutely ridiculous. The link the author gives – http://www.globalresearch.ca/increasing-police-brutality-americans-killed-by-cops-now-outnumber-americans-killed-in-iraq-war/5361554 says nothing of the sort. This type of statement has been brought up on other activist sites on you tube. The numbers do not tell the whole story. Again the author has taken liberties with how things truly are. The people who are in law enforcement are heroes. They do a difficult job with few rewards. The author has voiced a realization that police officers are heroes and that threatens the author.

    This article is full of misinformation and half truths. Drug dealers among others use dogs and train them to attack. No officer is going to stand by and wait to see if a dog is going to attack them during a tense scene. That may not sit right with a few people but that is reality. The author made the claim that police don’t police themselves. That to is another lie. What I have observed are activists who have convinced themselves that all police officers are bad. That is not the truth but a mental frame of mind. Law enforcement have protocols. There are a number of communities within the law enforcement community to improve upon protocols and enforce them. Just because the jury didn’t side with you does not mean all law enforcement is bad. Again the author has taken a number of liberties much like a few others have on this site. The author seems to want people to get into the same frame of mind he is in. Sorry, the world doesn’t work that way. I have seen police officers rush in burning buildings, put their lives in jeopardy, drag people out of burning cars, and not to long ago, our police department had an officer who wen’t into a house for a welfare check and the house was filled with CO and he managed to save 2 people with out a single thought of his own safety. He is a father of 3 and has a lot to live for. That is just one example of police heroes. There are many many more.

    Amazing!…on a website called ‘Copblock’ no less…who would have thunk it!…

    One thing i have noticed about cops and their apologists when they comment, they’re always rude and insulting people…why is that?…the police present themselves as the best of the best, but cant take criticism and react like 13 yr old bullies when they do get pulled up on abuse of power and office…Most of the problems law enforcement has, would be solved it they just grew up, and treated the public they’re supposed to be serving, and who pay their wages, with respect, and admit when they’re wrong…

    The good cops are intimidated and bullied as well, that’s why we rarely hear about the good cops, busting the bad cops…screw professional courtesy.

    Jake C.
    The problem is that not all dogs shot belong to drug dealers, by far. Chihuahuas, poodles, labs, bernese, newfs, boxers, dachsunds, etc.(all shot by cops), aren’t pitbulls, dobermans, and rottwielers. In fact, pitbulls, dobermans, and rottweilers aren’t as they are portrayed either. I’ve been around dobermans (my only one true dog was a doberman mutt) and rottweilers. They are what the owner makes them, and few make them into vicious attack dogs. I’ve rescued Pits too and I was in danger of being licked to death.
    What dogs do is protect their territory, but that doesn’t mean they will attack, my Bernese would bark like crazy, but always backed away. Remember that in the Calvo case the Lab was shot while running away. I have no doubt a bad, devoid of empathy cop entering my backyard would have shot my Bernese while she backed away.
    Dogs on chains aren’t dangerous either, but cops have shot them nonetheless. The lesser problem is that cops can shoot dogs with no consequence. The greater problem is that they do.
    “The author made the claim that police don’t police themselves. That to is another lie.” I agree. What he should have said, using your words, is that they don’t police themselves well enough to claim they do a good job. It isn’t either they do or they don’t police themselves, it’s whether they do it well. There is no reason for a Bill of Rights for cops if they did.
    The “cops are brave” has nothing to do with it. Non-cops have done everything you’ve said cops have done. It’s because none own bravery by profession. Moreover, a police hero, or many heroes, does not make all police heroes. Any more than Medal of Honor recipients, or Silver Stars, or Bronze Stars, or even Purple Hearts, make all in the military heroes. Would you so diminish them by the claim?

  • RaymondbyEllis

    It’s an easy but fallacious argument. They go for the former but miss the latter. It may also fit in with the acronym NHI, the most depraved acronym I’ve run across that I can remember. It borders on sociopathic.

  • Art Lee

    I did not even read all of your rant just the part where you claim the likely hood of being killed by police is not more than being killed by a terrorist. Well I would like to point out ,while I can not easily put together those numbers. I can tell you more people have died at the hands of the police. Than we lost in either war zone seperately . It almost approaches the total of soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. Sorry Jake heroes know that some things are worth dying for. Cops kill they never sacrifice. Who cares what the cat owner was upset about. Tell me what threat does a house cat pose ?
