Judge refuses to sign warrant in viral video of dogs hurled by leash

In East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, the juvenile allegedly responsible for hurling two leashed dogs through the air and onto the street has not been arrested.  A juvenile court judge refused to sign the warrant on Wedneday  to arrest the teen. According to WafbNews, Juvenile Court Judge Pamela Johnson made the decision and went home early due to illness.

The graphic video went viral on Saturday night and calls for justice poured into the office of Iberville Parish Sheriff  Brett Stassi who launched the investigation into animal cruelty and then turned the information over to East Baton Rouge Parish authorities where the crime is said to have occurred.  The Instagram video, first shared publicly came from the account of  cammrawwazz – the account has since deleted.

Although the juvenile’s face is clearly visible in the video, it is not known why the judge made the decision.

“A warrant was put together with the evidence including the video, statements from other witnesses, and a positive ID of the juvenile defendant by the family and other witnesses,” stated Sheriff Stassi. “… the information was brought to a judge in Baton rouge and, at this time she refused to sign the warrant where we could bring this young man to justice.”

District Attorny Hillar Moore has not been able to make any statements explaining the decision since the person is a juvenile.

The two dogs have been found. According to WAFB News, the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office deputies canvassing the Gardere area found the two dogs and their owner; the dogs are reported to be in good health.

MAYBE THIS DUMB ASS JUDGE WILL GET THE PICTURE AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT AND SHE WILL FEEL THE PAIN. THROW THIS BITCH OFF THE BENCH AND SWING HER ASS AND IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS FROM THEIR NECK.

    Can another judge step in and see that this little A.H. excuse of a kid is arrested??? Do they NOT think he will continue abusing if he does not pay for this? What ever animal he hurts or kills next should be on the head of the judge who is turning up at nose at this case!

    The news article stated the video was so graphic that they refused to reprint the video in their article. Yet, the ‘ELECTED’ Judge let this animal abuser walk away from ALL CHARGES! The ‘ELECTED’ Judge than said she was not feeling well and went home. Sounds like the Judge does NOT want to deal with an animal abuse case! Please if you live in this area start a petition agains this ‘ELECTED’ Judge. Next election, please remember this ‘ELECTED” Judge FAILED to PROVIDE the proper punishment to an ANIMAL ABUSER and she must be replaced with a new Judge that can RESPECT and PROTECT innocent precious animals that are being ABUSED!!!

      If the judge was not feeling well and went home, why didn’t she pass her job onto another judge? This was an urgent matter before any other innocent was so horribly tortured. The judge should be accountable for not doing a job that would protect the public.

    Pamela Johnson, you are a POS judge and should be removed from the position AND since you’re no doubt a lawyer, you should be disbarred and never allowed reinstatement. What’s to think about? It’s obvious in the video who the little spawn of Satan is and what he’s doing.

    My “tempered” message (as an example):

    Clerk of Court, Doug Welborn;

    Dear Mr. Welborn;

    Kindly forward this message of concern to Judge Pamela Johnson?!

    Thank you!

    Judge Johnson;

    It was with great dismay and regret that I learned of your denying the warrant request to arrest and hold responsible the party who committed the reprehensible abuse of two small canine companion animals: What message were you attempting to convey to this “youthful offender”, by abrogating your responsibility to prosecute this case and dissuade the offender from further instances of abuse?

    It has been reported that you departed your office early that day, feeling ill. I am hopeful that you’ve had an expedient recovery, and that – upon further reflection – will reconsider your warranty declination: To do anything less, would be considered a serious injustice – not only for these hapless companions, but their family, the community, and the offender, himself.

    Thank you for your compassionate reconsideration of this critical issue!

    Sincerely,

    Steve

    This is why animal abuse runs rampant! It is NOT taken seriously at all! I hope the voter’s of this parish take note and when this Judge comes up for re-election someone who is more responsible is elected in stead. UNBELIEVABLE!

    Time to call, email this judge and demand that she do her job and sign the warrant.
    If elected need to find someone to run against her, if appointed then to contact the person who appointed her and demand they replace her immediately.

    Judge Pamela Johnson is not teaching these youths to be responsible for their actions. As a matter a fact she’s teaching them that they can easily get away with things and not be responsible for their actions. She’s also showing them its ok to abuse an animal. And what do they say about children that abuse animals?? That they
    grow up to abuse people. Think about it judge!!!!!

    This judge definitely needs to be removed from the bench! Something is definitely wrong here! Either she is mentally incompetent, knows the defendant or has been paid off! There should be a federal review and possibly a criminal investigation!

    One piss poor example of a judge – yes, you Pamela Johnson, your lack of compassion for two innocent abused dogs is fucking disgusting. YOU have allowed another animal abuser to walk away and continue their cruelty – your actions, or rather, lack of actions are deplorable and going home ‘sick’ only shows you are scared of the backlash you will receive – and you best believe you will. You are a massive black eye for any and all judges – where did you get your law degree – Walmart? Believe it, you are a piss poor example of your profession and I hope you pay dearly for your stupidity.

    This joke of a judge would be a vague memory come next election. There is NO VALID REASON for her refusal. Get her out of there. this is another thug in the making. Drag his parents into it as well because they taught him that it would be OK to treat an animal like this.

    So….Judge doesn’t feel this warrants this criminal”s arrest??? Somebody got paid somewhere to let this rotten spoiled little scumbag walk free. Great lesson abuse helpless animals. Make a joke of it. Then put it on video as if you’re a star. All while laughing and smirking?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They very easily could have suffered sever injuries!!!! Next time I’m betting they will
    This is thevreadon this shit goes on. Day in and out. Perhaps the judge doesn’t see it as serious. But a whole lot of us out here recognize this as a serious crime!!!! So much for justice…..once again!!!## Thanks for the Epic fail judge!!!! You should be ashamed!!!!

    So the police found the dogs’ owner and the both dogs are said to be “well” (but probably still having nightmares!)… What I find strange is that the abuser swung these dogs by their leashes – where did he get the leashes? Was he walking the dogs? Does he know the dogs’ owner, or worse, does he live at the same address? I don’t understand why the police can’t locate this animal abuser, because he’s clearly identifiable in the video. He’s really dangerous and I sure hope these little dogs are not living at the same address as this thug.
