The content below was shared by those involved with Jackson Cop Block, who, joined by Tactical Patriot, are working to make transparent the unjust actions of Jackson police employee Matt Peters by organizing a call flood, filing FOIA requests, connecting with those in the community, and starting a fundraising campaign to support the man wronged by those who purport to “serve and protect.”
On 11-28-2014 Officer Matt Peter’s entered the home of Eddie Harris, without a warrant and fatally shot Mr. Harris’s dog. The dog didn’t bite the officer as stated in the police report. I spoke with and me Mr. Harris and he confirms that hhis dog was murdered by the police. Officer Peters then laughed at Mr. Harris as his dog was lying dead. I’m going to call on everyone that understands what Mr. Harris is going through and help me with a call flood to the Jackson City Police department and demand that Officer Peter’s be relieved from his duty’s pending their investigation.
