Police Brutality Apparently Extends To The Animal Kingdom… Cops Could Lose Their Jobs Over Killing Of Helpless Groundhog

This is becoming pretty par for the course…

Police in America took a break from killing unarmed black people and elderly volunteers last week when they decided to kill a groundhog during a golf tournament in upstate New York last weekend.

While some may argue they were exterminating a pest, it's actually against Frear Park Golf Course rules to kill the animals since they do not bother humans. And it's the way they mistreated the animal before killing it that has the department investigating…

According to eyewitnesses, Officer Tyler Sammon of Troy apparently chased the rodent on foot until the animal could no longer run. That's when he decided to get back into the cart and drive over the helpless animal.

Rensselaer Police Chief Rick Fusco called the killing "really bothersome."

Officer Mike Spath, Tyler's passenger in the cart, did not directly harm the creature, but we guess he's being viewed as an accessory. Both officers are now on paid administrative leave — the exact same punishment as the men who killed Alton Sterling and Mary Knowlton. Ugh…

Rest in peace, little guy.
