Dog Justice: 23-year sentence for shooting police dog

A black youth was sentenced to 23 years for shooting a former police DOG. Cops who beat Kelly Thomas to death didn't serve a day. Cops who murdered Larry Neal under secret arrest were never even investigated. Virtually every murder and abuse of the mentally ill in this DogJustice blog was done by cops and corrections officers who were not prosecuted. Too bad black people and the mentally ill don't have Dog Justice, isn't it?

I was so impressed with America's zeal to enforce justice for pit bulls that I penned this poem, wishing that certain people counted as much as dogs in America with their right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness protected like canine citizens:

DOG JUSTICE

Too bad you weren't a dog, my brother
In my heart, I cried
Many more people would care about you
And wonder why you died

You had no spots or floppy ears
You never fetched a ball
Instead, you were a human being
But poor, black, and flawed

You died in jail for mental illness
I know down in my heart
Your death would be investigated
If only you could bark

Dog deaths get swift justice
Their abusers are sent to jail
Poor Mama would have closure now
If you'd had a wagging tail

But you were made in God's image
And some day, I have no doubt
The mentally ill and American dogs
Will have at least equal clout

Abuse feels like this to humans, too.
