Borchardt Calls for “War” Against Pit Bull Owners.

Borchardt, founder of Daxton’s Friends has declared all out war on Pit Bull owners after the release of the new book written by Bronwen Dickey.

At this moment, sitting behind his computer in the great state of Wisconsin, Borchardt is messaging all of his fellow fear mongering minions and stuffing envelopes with his fliers while he seethes with his ever growing rage that the public is finally seeing just how hateful and violent the BSL movement has become thanks to a new article that was written by Josh Shaffer. It’s no secret that Borchardt is partially responsible for creating Pit Bulls & Amputees, an ” anonymous ” facebook page dedicted to the usual BSL reteric and Shaffer explains in the article just how BSL advocates attempt to stay anonymous while indulging in their usual online hate cyber attacks.  The bottom line? Borchardt is very mad, once again.

Not only does Borchardt send the materials used in physical stalking done by Craig Brown, he brags about it and in usual Borchardt’s  fanatic behavior, everyone who disagrees with him and the fundamental concept of BSL are all liars and frauds. He doesn’t want to hear a single thing UNLESS you are actively out stalking people who dare to speak up against the flawed BSL concept and his fragile grip on reality is slipping and it becomes glaringly obvious in his latest fanatical rant.

Calling millions of innocent families that chose to have pit bull/bully types and the common mutt for a pet as domestic terrorists is a great example of just how obsessive and all consuming Borchardt has become in the outright attack of the majority of the United States population. Ironically enough, the very thing he outlines in his rant, is the one thing he denies those who he is continuously attacking. Let’s break down his idiot questions and answer them:

  1. Can you find common ground with people that could give a shit about you and your family? 

Has Borchardt found common ground with the millions of pit bull owners attempting to keep their family pets safe from the erratic and often dangerous behavior from his BSL movement? Does he give a “shit” about the millions of families living peacefully with their pit bull  type dog? That answer is obvious after you check out the many facebook pages created by Borchardt, many like his facebook page where he posts pictures of children who have pit bulls in the family. How many of those families has he victimized?

2. Can we find common ground with people who refuse to listen to your point of view,   discredit your source, or refuse to read the victim’s stories?

I don’t know, can Borchardt find common ground with the millions of families that are living peacefully with their dogs even after Borchardt attempts to discredit all of the professional affiliations that do not support BSL? Can he find common ground with the families affected negatively by BSL or will he continue to mock families that have to give up their innocent pet because of BSL?

3. Can we find common ground with people who care more about dogs than the innocent children maimed, mauled and killed by these dogs?

While the majority of the population sympathizes for the loss of a child or an injury done to a dog, the majority of the population still realizes just how rare dog bite fatalities are.  Why should families give up their innocent dogs because a tragedy happened? If you are a gun owner, will you be giving up your guns because a child was killed by a gun thousands of miles from you? Studies have shown just how ineffective BSL has been and how other methods such as education is one of the greatest tools in reducing dog attacks.

4. Can we find common ground with people who flat out deny the history and heritage of these dogs?

It’s interesting that Borchardt keeps circling back to the “history” and “heritage” of all pit type dogs. It’s no secret what the original purpose of the original breed was for and while there are obviously still dog fighters attempting to recreate the lineage perfect for the gruesome and illegal act of dog fighting, it’s a safe bet to say that the majority of “pit type dogs” sitting in homes are glorified mutts. Could they have “pit bull” in them? Of course, but then again, they could also have lab, poodle, great dane and about 400 other breeds mixed with them. Those that have  American Pit Bull Terriers are not blind to the history of their chosen breed and many of those that have rescued dogs from a fighting operation know all too well about why their dogs were created and yet it’s those individuals, like the owners of the Vick dogs that have done the greatest service to their community by showing just how amazing these dogs can be when taken out of the abusive environment.

Yet Borchardt still wonders why people just won’t toss their own beliefs out the window and support him and his failing cause. Not only does Borchardt search for conflict, he obviously enjoys the ability to stalk and confront people that he knows will not see eye to eye with him, either that or he is short that many brain cells where he honestly thought going to obvious rescuers that worked on finding homes for pit bulls would really sit down and listen to a man whose main goal is to kill all of their adoptable dogs that were pit bull type dogs?

At the end of the day Borchardt loves the conflict and trauma he inflicts. While he will never publically announce that he was the driving force and one of the admins of the Pit Bull and Amputee pages ( that ironically changed their name to “Pit Bull Public Safety Education”), it’s no secret in the inner circle of his fear mongering morons that he is one of the few running that offensive hate page. He’s more than welcome to dispute it, which he will, but he will not offer up any evidence to back his claim, which for Borchardt, that’s just the norm.

Borchardt calls for war and as usual, it’s just one more thing he will fail at.

He Will Give You One Chance to Say Exactly What He Want’s You to Say…

what-do-you-want-me-to-say

 

Borchardt is just so kind to us “willfully ignorant pit bull activists”. Just how is he so kind to us? Well, he takes time from his usually non-busy day to write a blog post about how he will give you a chance to make ONE comment on his one of hundreds of facebook pages and not get banned. What’s the catch ( because, we know there is always a catch…) ? You just have to say exactly what he wants you to say.

Seems rather simple, right? WRONG!  First, you have to listen to the barrage of names that you have to agree to be called. Nope, it doesn’t matter just how inaccurate they are, you just have to roll with the names. What are the names? Let me list a few:

You have to agree that YOU are:

  • Willfully ignorant
  • Brain washed
  • Ill- informed
  • Uneducated
  • White trash
  • Hood rat
  • Criminal
  • Uneducated
  • Poor
  • Welfare recipient
  • Prostitute
  • Drug Dealer
  • Murderer
  • Child-hater
  • Cee U Next Thursday
  • Piece of Sh@t


GIFSoup

If you agree to the names, then you can move on to the next step. Borchardt being Borchardt kindly jotted down the things that you CAN NOT say, that list doesn’t seem tooo bad…..

  • “Any dog is capable” ( Duh… because NO other dog can bite or kill…..right?)
  • “All dogs bite” ( Nope, only one type of dog can bite, like ever.)
  • “Sorry for you Loss, but or Sorry for you loss, However…” ( Don’t even try to point out the common sense factors in a news article….)
  • “You’re Ignorant” ( Because BSL Advocates ARE NEVER ignorant…)
  • “Educate Yourself” ( Dogsbite.org and Merritt Clifton are the only education they need.)
  • “Back in the 70’s,n 80’s….” ( Because those days and those breeds just don’t matter.)
  • “According to the NCRC, AVMA, UKC, AKC, etc….”( No use for those stinkin’ experts at all…)
  • “My pit bull is sweet and would never hurt a fly.” ( Like Millions of them…)
  • “All dogs show warning signs.” ( Even though they do, it doesn’t matter, right?)
  • “It’s the owners.” ( Even though it is most of the time…)
  • “Pit bulls pass the ATTS test.” ( Even though they do…)
  • “Petey was a pit bull, or Sgt. Stubby.” (Even though they were…)
  • “Pit mixes are not pit bulls.” (Most normal people call mixes “mutts”.. but who cares?).
  • “BSL doesn’t work because it doesn’t stop all dog ‘bites.” (Even though that statement has been proven correct..)

 

Now the important part: The things that Borchardt will ALLOW you to say:

“Wow, I didn’t know that.”

 “I had no idea it was so bad.”

 “I will take extra precaution with my fighting breed from now on, especially around children.”

 “I will look into a break stick and how to use it.”

 “I’m so sorry for your loss.” (no BUT’S)

 

We have created these pages in an attempt to spare other families and friends of the pain and suffering we have had to endure by giving you HONEST information. Not DISHONEST information from the countless organizations and TV shows whom are OWNED, CONTROLLED, or FUNDED by dog breeders, owners, veterinarians or animal welfare groups that have a vested interest in keeping the status of pit bulls unregulated, but HONEST information from people that have nothing to gain from this position. – Jeff Borchardt

 

(Just a small sample of those honest and educational groups Borchardt offers to the public…)

Who is ready to test out Borchardt’s  offer? I will be honest, I will have to pass…. I have way to much fun proving their bullshit wrong.

Jeff Borchardt & Craig Brown- Stalking on Demand

 

iseebitterpeople

If you listen closely, you will hear the buzzing of bitterness deep within the hive of BSL craziness. One of those voices seething with bitterness is the infamous Jeff Borchardt. Why is he bitter now? What could have possibly triggered his predictable temper tantrum?

A insightful, beautifully written New York Times best seller book that dares to speak the truth and filled with facts about pit bulls.

11873760_861456850602735_5310670027733200535_n

A book that destroyed anything and everything written by BSL Advocates. A book that confronts the inaccuracy of “statistics” by the notorious Merritt Clifton, who for some reason declined to actually back up his “statistics” when the author contacted to him give him a chance to back up his facts. A book that is supported, enjoyed and loved by professionals and experts… something that no BSL advocate has yet to ever achieve. It’s not like they haven’t tried- I mean,  J Thomas Beasley attempted to write a book, Misunderstood Nanny dogs, unfortunately for BSL advocates it sank faster than the titanic. I suppose the world wasn’t ready for a cut & paste printed copy of Dogsbite.org, but it shows the glaring difference between a well researched book (like Dickey’s) and a hack job like Beasley.

So yes, Borchardt and his fellow morons have a lot to be bitter about and true to form, the founder of Daxton’s Friends  resorts to his typical behavior…. sending out the stalkers and one in particular, Mr. Craig Brown.  It’s not like Craig Brown is new to the stalker world, in fact, he reeeeaaallly enjoys stalking people and children. Yes, you read that right- Mr. Craig Brown enjoys stalking children.

 

It’s his love for stalking that Borchardt knew that Brown was the best man to send to stalk and harass Bronwen Dickey at her book reading/signing which he happily did.

 

Even AFTER he was removed and the police had been dispatched because of his harassment and stalking, he found it necessary to attempt to pass out Daxton’s Friends fliers provided by Jeff Borchardt.

I can’t help but find the false bravado from Borchardt to be somewhat amusing. While he sits behind his keyboard in his little town in Wisconsin, always bragging about he’ll face any pit bull owner anywhere to “educate” them on his views, both him, I and a certain media group now just how false that really is.

borchardt.PNG

 

In attempt to set it out all on the table, I encouraged a face to face  with Borchardt to be aired on a cable network channel. I even agreed to fly to his little hell hole and buy the jobless man a cup a coffee while we discussed our differences of views. I thought for sure, the man who keeps pounding his little chest and proclaiming how he would set pit bull owners straight in a face to face would absolutely jump at the chance to “educate” me with his “facts”…. surprisingly, he declined. Here was this platform with access to millions and he refused. I even agreed with producers to not to write about his growing incoherent online rants for a bit and he still chickened out. At the end of the day Borchardt showed his true colors and yellow fits him.

While I’m sure that Ms. Dickey will never have to worry about Borchardt ever growing the balls to ever face her one day, it’s no secret he will send his stalker buddies just like Brown to follow her and harass her at every opportunity.

…. and if they can’t physically stalk her, they will make sure to stalk her online also.

Welcome to the world of BSL advocates….

Come on…..

Come on. Come the f@ck on. Alright, I get there are legitimate breeders out there. Legitimate, ethical breeders that want to better the breeds of dogs that they love. Whatever-  I don’t hold anything against you… but then- you have people like… the Toadline and Iron Mitt Kennels.

You know what, let me just give a great big F@CK You shout out to Iron Mitt Kennels. Seriously. First of all… your over priced mutts (Yes, you read that correctly- over priced mutts) are not a pure bred anything much less an American Pit Bull Terrier.

fy

Hello to the next generation of seemingly legitimate back yard breeders (Yes, that was a purposeful oxy-moron.). Who the heck knows what those dogs are mashed with.  Some American Pit Bull Terrier? Sure! How about some American Bulldog? Well Duh…. Sprinkle in some Mastiff to reach that whopping 155 lbs? Why the hell not? Maybe some…. Mini Schnauzer? Who the hell knows? Great Dane? Could be?!!

fy3

 

You know what I see when I read their “resume” of pedigrees? Blah, blah, mutt, fancy mutt, American Bully, mutt, over priced mutt, American Pit Bull Terrier x with what ever, mutt, some more mutt…. and then the “Top Producing American Pitbull Terriers in the country” nonsense. Gee- Where have I heard that before? Oh riiiiiight… from every backyard breeder EVER. Every back yard breeder will tell you their mix mashed mutts up are top of the line!  I wonder how well that line of bullshit worked out for back yard breeders that created Niko- the over 130 lb mutt who killed a young 4 year old girl in Louisiana.

The scary part is…. they inbred these bad boys. They want bigger. Bigger head, bigger body, more mass, deeper chests, bigger, badder and not one single thought of the damage they are doing to millions of innocent dogs.

fy5

One thousand dollars as a deposit….

fy6

… and the break down of prices…. but HEY! If you can’t afford that, not a big deal! Iron Mitt Kennels out of Michigan offers a swip swap trade for these puppies.

fy4

Let’s talk truth for a moment- As long as we (As pit bull, Bully breed or whatever owners) allow this shit to keep going on, we will be fighting Breed Specific Legislation for the rest of our lives and our children and their children will be doing the same thing. What is the solution? I don’t know- but I do know, that as a community that loves our dogs and know just how awesome, strong, hard working and inspiring they are and can be, we are going to have to be the ones that demand some sort of something to protect not just our dogs, but all dogs from this type of greed.

I know that back yard breeders affect every breed out there, but when something goes horribly wrong with back yard breeders breeding dogs like this, like the case of Mia DeRouen– it becomes deadly and horrific. People like Iron Mitt Kennels are the gas that fuels Breed Specific Legislation.

fy8

I mean, are these the people that we want representing our dogs? How many times has this dog been bred? How many people have bought or traded jet skis and what not for her puppies?

fy7

What happens if that dog from their “purebred American Pit Bull Terrier” line gets tired of being sat on and bites the child? I can tell you what will happen….millions of families and innocent dogs will pay the price for it. Is that what you want?

 

Is Jeff Borchardt, Daxton’s Friends, Colleen Lynn and Dogsbite.org behind these Cases of Animal Abuse?

“Sometime between the late evening hours of July 1 and early morning of July 2, one of our adopted dogs, an American Pit Bull Terrier named Morpheus, was lured away from his owners’ property and killed. His body was then dumped near their property where he was found the next morning. A necropsy was performed to determine the cause of death. Morpheus died from a single gunshot wound and his body was moved post mortem.

Morpheus, the black Pit Bull pictured here with Kati and his sister, was just 9 months old. He was an ambassador for his breed. He was a gentle dog who loved everyone he met. In fact, his trust and love of people made him an easy target. We cannot stand by and let his death be just one more act of animal cruelty in our community. We are working with Kati and her husband Erik to offer a reward starting at $2,000 for information that leads to the conviction of the individual(s) responsible for the intentional, malicious killing of a part of their family. Morpheus was family.

Detective Redmon with IMPD is actively working leads, but she needs your help. We are asking that anyone with information, or who may have seen or heard something in the area of 9700 Cooper Rd. or 8200 Stones Ferry Dr. on the night of Wednesday July 1 and early morning of Thursday July 2, contact Detective Redmon at 317-327-1431 or Crime Stoppers of Indiana at 317-262-TIPS. 

Our deepest sympathy goes out to Kati and Erik as well as our continued commitment to help bring Morpheus’s killer to justice.”

Notice the sign she is holding? We have seen Jeff Borchardt, the founder of Daxton’s Friends and poster child of a hot mental mess for Dogsbite.org – stalking and cyber attacking dog owners involved in the I am the Majority project. I would suggest and will foward complete lists of Jeff Borchardts anti pit/hate groups to the authorities. In fact- Borchardt is warning the public:

image

According to Borchardt- we will not like how these dogs will be taken out. He warns us that it will not be humane. However, this isn’t the only dusturbing case.

Warning: This image is disturbing.

He may be alive today…if someone had just called. Yesterday, our HERO Team responded to a call about a dog suspected to be a victim of abuse who lay deceased in front of a dumpster. We have named the dog Justice. Eyewitnesses reported hearing and seeing a dog “cry out” Monday night in South Kansas City. 

But no one called authorities. No one investigated. 

The dumpster was emptied on Monday morning, and was at least halfway full when our team arrived on Wednesday. This means that countless people walked over the dog to put their trash in the dumpster. Though we do not know who or what caused his injuries, we do know he suffered severe trauma to his neck/head and he was left alone to suffer. Animal abuse should not and will not be tolerated. 

A reward fund of $1,000 has been established for anyone with information about the case or who may be responsible. Tips can be directed to (913) 742-7327. Great Plains SPCA and friends of KC Animals are asking the community to stand up and speak out against animal abuse because ‪#‎PetsDeserveBetter‬. Any citizen who encounters a situation of suspected animal abuse or neglect needs to immediately contact authorities so help can be provided while there is still time and responsible parties are held accountable. Please help us spread the word by sharing this across Facebook and Kansas City.”

I would go ahead and start checking out the members of this group-

Odds are that these individuals know exactly who is responsible.

Are BSL Advocates a Danger to Our Community?

As BSL Advocates preach about public safety against the threat of pit bull type dogs and a least 20 other breeds of dogs, the question should be asked:

Who is the real danger to our community?

rickfiteWhen we start pulling back the curtain, we find that violence is one of the fundamental building blocks in the BSL advocacy. They dedicate hours every day thinking of ways to kill, torture and maim dogs and inflict emotional and physical harm of the dog owners.  Can you imagine the fear you and your children would be filled with if you were walking your dog and you came across Rick Fite armed with such a devastating weapon? It’s obvious he places zero value on human life as he lets his young child play with the bullets of the deadly weapon.

Intimidation is nothing new to BSL Advocates. In fact, it’s something they rely on as they openly brag about killing.

Intimidation: is intentional behavior that “would cause a person of ordinary sensibilities” fear of injury or harm. It is not necessary to prove that the behavior was so violent as to cause terror or that the victim was actually frightened.

When we discuss public safety as a community we need to start shedding light on the desire to expose our families to violence and harm that BSL advocates openly support. In fact, Intimidation is the name of a criminal offense in several U.S. states. The definitions of the crime of Intimidation differ by state but even beyond that, could the terrorism tactics used by BSL Advocates towards pit bull owners be deemed a a hate crime?

Hate Crime/Bias motivated Crime: is a usually violent, prejudice motivated crime that occurs when a perpetrator targets a victim because of his or her perceived membership in a certain social group.

BSL Advocates openly admit that it’s encouraged to openly mock, shame and harass pit bull type dog owners with the intent of humiliating and harassing.

wpid-screenshot_2015-07-07-18-12-412They openly acknowledge their intent to target a certain social group, discriminate against the dog owners of specific breeds and to even threaten with violence.

olivia

Can you imagine the emotional trauma inflicted on a child walking their dog with their family and Olivia started flashing and waving her knives? As a society, when is it okay to permit the threat of violence? Can you image the damage and the carnage that Rick Fite would inflict if he opened fire in a public setting? He would not only kill the dog(s) but the possibility of killing and injuring people would almost be a certainty. If Olivia decided to expose her multiple knives and confronted a family or individual walking their dog and she ended up stabbing the dog and owners? Why do BSL Advocates feel they get a free pass on endangering our communities?

They might feel that they do, but history has shown that the public is not tolerant of the behavior. Richard Prince, a former fire fighter demoted and eventually forced into retirement was called out by millions as he spoke about killing and torturing dogs as a fire fighter. Regardless of their own personal beliefs, BSL Advocates do not have the right to terrorize innocent people. BSL Advocates do not have the right to endanger, threaten physical violence and death towards innocent people because they don’t like their dog.

This is why it’s so important that people understand that BSL isn’t just about dogs. Breed Specific Legislation is very much about the people behind the dogs. It’s about a community, it’s about discriminating against millions of people and BSL advocates feel that it’s acceptable to terrorize a certain social group of individuals.

What should make our legislators and communities pause and have great concern when dealing with BSL advocates is their enjoyment in animal abuse. It’s not something they hid, they talk about it, brag about it and find it funny.

11722555_953381424684748_7999114221244514542_o11728789_953381461351411_4039265520010546696_o11710038_953381504684740_5633975948366158399_o

Animal abusers are five times more likely to commit violent crimes against people.

In 1985, researchers Stephen Kellert and Alan Felthous extensively studied the animal abuse phenomenon. They discovered several motivations that helped to characterize animal cruelty in adults, many of which are applicable to youth who abuse animals. Some motivations are:

  1. To enhance one’s own aggressiveness. To shock people for amusement.
  2. Controlling an animal through inflicting pain as a result of the sense of loss of full control in one’s own life. (Physically abused by parents.)
  3. Retaliation against a person by hurting their pet.
  4. To experience sadism (the suffering experienced by the animal).

As a society, we really need to be deeply concerned about this issue and how BSL advocates promote such violence. Animal cruelty is becoming more and more publicized in the media and the abuse is becoming heinous and it’s obvious to see the tie between the BSL Advocacy and the recent animal cruelty cases in the media.

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. (WJBK) – A decapitated dog was found Saturday on railroad tracks near Mound Road between 14 Mile and 15 Mile roads.
The dog was found by two men who were searching for their missing dog.  The men found a dog tag and called the owners.  The owners of the 6-year-old boxer dog named Layla called police. Turns out, Layla had escaped from her home Friday night while the owners were gone. They believe the dog pushed open a window and knocked a screen out.

Let’s not forget to mention BSL Adocates like “Sarah Howard” who endanger family dogs and families by cyber stalking families that own bully/pit type dogs.

sara

It’s safe to say that this family and their newly adopted dog are now in danger thanks to Sarah as she scours this man’s facebook page and releases any and all private information into private BSL groups.

ffff

Unlike Lesley, I blacked out the images of the children’s faces especially considering the pedophilia and bestiality obsessions with many of the BSL Advocates.

As a community, we need to apply pressure on our local judicial authorities to take cases of animal abuse seriously. The laws must speak for themselves, so that each is clear that violence against any sentient beings – whether human or animal – is not acceptable. That means we need to start holding BSL advocates responsible for their behavior- online and offline.

December 07, 2012 – Part One

Stalking, harassing, verbally abusing, exaggerating…. Just another day in the life of BSL Advocate/”Victims Advocate” William Johnson. This isn’t the first time I’ve written about his nasty habit of stalking and harassing families, he’s well known for harassing an autistic girl and her family… all because her family owns a pit bull.

December 07, 2012 is a day that will haunt the Gerome family of Philadelphia PA for the rest of their lives. According to the family, it was just another night- Anthony Gerome’s two daughters were having a sleep over with their friends, including  10 year old Adara Johnson. The parents were downstairs as the girls and their 15 month old pit bull puppy Gigi were in the room with the girls. No one really knows for sure what happened, but 10 year old Adara Johnson was bitten in the face.  The Geromes called 911 and the Johnson family to tell the of the horrible accident. As the two families met in the emergency room, the first words out of the William Johnson’s partner and mother of Adara- Jean Marie Jachinowicz  was:

“Do you have homeowners insurance?”

From that moment, the Gerome family had no idea just how their lives would change. One thing I want to make sure everyone knows is that Anthony Gerome has never denied that he feels responsible for the tragedy that happened under his roof. He has publically acknowledged that he had no issues paying the medical bills because he felt responsible for those and at first, the Gerome family were more than willing to be financially responsible. According to Mrs. Gerome, offered the Johnson family 200$ at first to put towards the medical bill and was ready to make future payments except William Johnson refused to accept any payment after the 200$. The Gerome had this sinking feeling that William Johnson was preparing to sue the family, which he did- and has done so much more.

As William Johnson publically mocks this family on facebook, playing his pity card- he fails to mention the horror that he has put the Gerome family through.

victims6

Helenanne Gerome, the wife of Anthony Jerome is devastated by the actions of William Johnson. William Johnson has made it his mission to physically stalk and harass this family and the emotional toll of the abuse that William Johnson is giving is starting to show.  When  asked if William has been stalking him and his family, Mr. Gerome states:

Yes every where I go to work or out with my family”.

Which William confirms with his public posting in his hate group, The Pit Bull Propaganda Machine Revealed:

victim

He doesn’t end there…..

victim11

I’m sure Mr. Gerome took offense with the continuous stalking of his family, although I doubt that he just “ran” into Mr. Gerome- in fact, William finds it funny, the taunting and stalking of Mr. Gerome…

victims12

The funny thing, which I will dive deeper into the follow up on this post is that according to sources- the medical costs of Adara’s was covered by state assisted healthcare. The Johnsons did not pay a single dime- but that story is for another day.

As William plasters this family’s info everywhere, he forgets to tell the whole story (how shocking……) We all know that there are people that shirk from their responsibilities when it comes to dog attacks, but the Gerome family is the complete opposite of that. The Gerome family has gone above and beyond to right this horrible accident.

victims6

victims7

Helenanne Gerome worried about the traumatic accident affecting the girls who witnessed the bite set up counseling for all the girls there and the only one who refused the help was the Johnson family. Sometimes we forget that there are multiple victims in this tragedy, the two Gerome girls have suffered just as much if not more harassment than the adults at the hands of William Johnson and his thirst for vengeance.

After the bite, Anthony Gerome automatically euthanized Gigi. He states it was one of the hardest things to do. Gigi was his daughter’s dog, her best friend- and for two solid weeks his daughter cried herself to sleep. What makes things even worse are the rumors William Johnson helped fuel at the children’s school- making claims that the family commanded their 15 month old puppy Gigi to attack Adara Johnson. Because of these malicious false rumors, the school did not want the Gerome girls to return. These girls suffered a great loss and still are dealing with the emotional trauma and the affects of bullying by adults.

William Johnson’s philosophy is that no dog ever has a reason to bite a person. He doesn’t care what a child does to a dog- which makes me believe there is more to this story that William doesn’t want the public to know- like what really happened in that room on December 7, 2012.

What we do know is- two families lives have been changed. The Gerome family has attempted to be responsible, to pick up the pieces and start to heal as a family but are tired of dealing with the onslaught of harassment from William Johnson, can you blame them? The Gerome family isn’t done fighting yet- during the first court case, Mr. Gerome informed the judge of the harassment and stalking by William Johnson during the trial and when they go back, thanks to Williams big mouth- there will be plenty of evidence to help support the Gerome family.
