After you read it ask yourself:

What would happen if you acted as did the lady wearing the badge?
If you lived in Vegas would you happy to pay for the “service” rendered – a dead four-legged family member and a ransom note?
Does the “justice” system really bring-about it’s idealistic ends?  What might we do instead?


FOX Carolina 21

A Las Vegas woman is outraged after a police officer allegedly ran over her beloved dog, Freckles, with his two-ton cruiser on purpose then cited the family for having him unrestrained.

Sarah Hecht, 22, said the cop told her he intentionally ran over the animal after it escaped from her backyard on May 21 and was running toward a group of children playing.

She rushed the wounded pet to the vet but had to put down the 45-pound Australian shepherd hybrid because of the injuries he suffered.

Freckles was a birthday gift Hecht received after getting straight As in high school.

Devastated, the woman staged a rally at the Regional Justice Center on Thursday protesting canine killings by Las Vegas police.

Around a dozen people showed up and shouted ‘Justice for Freckles’ as they called for enhanced training for officers dealing with animals.

Hecht was overcome with emotion while speaking of Freckles who she claims was like a child to her.


‘I don’t have children. He was my son,’ she said.

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, an officer told Hecht he purposefully ran over the dog after he noticed it running towards the play area.

The dog was dragged along the street by the police car, but survived. However, once at the vet, Hecht made the difficult decision to euthanize the animal.

While she was there, her father was cited for having an unrestrained dog.

Hecht claims Freckles escaped her backyard after he was taunted by neighborhood children and she insists the dog would never hurt anyone and had no history of biting humans.

Following the protest on Thursday, Hecht wept before Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Karen Bennett-Haron.

She explained what had happened to the dog and said she was broke after forking out $1,000 to try and save her ‘son’s’ life.

Bennett-Haron and prosecutors quickly agreed to dismiss the charges, the Review Journal reported.

The citation wasn’t the first for the Hecht family regarding Freckles. The 22-year-old has been cited twice in the past for animal code violations, including not obtaining a permit or sterilizing her dogs.

Court records show both matters were also dismissed. The police department refused to comment to the Review Journal on the matter because an investigation is still ongoing.justice-for-freckles-1-copblock
