Last night a dog here in Denver was hit by a car.  A bystander tried to help the dog but police on scene wouldn't let him because they didn't want the man to "impede the investigation". The dog died an hour & a half later, with no one to even comfort him. :(

Now someone is filing a petition calling for an apology from the DPD.  Do you agree that the officers involved should apologize to the witnesses for not allowing any help for this poor animal?

Yes...how do they investigate if it is a person that they have to take to the hospital? They figure out a way. This sounds really odd to me.

Would they let a human lie there and die so as not to "impede" an investigation? No. Poor puppy :(

They need to be retrained on how to deal with situations like this. The dog obviously needed medical help and the officers ignored that.

They should not only apologize to the witness, but the owners.

I was going to say the same thing.

Quoting DensHag: Yes...how do they investigate if it is a person that they have to take to the hospital? They figure out a way. This sounds really odd to me.




I will not have a temper tantrum nor stomp across the floor.


I will not pout, scream or shout or kick against the door.

I will not throw my food around nor pick upon another.

I’ll always try to be real good because I am the mother.

I am the mother.

I am the mother.

I feel for the poor dog. Why didn't they get him medical attention?
