Please sign and share this petition everywhere to demand this beast be brought to justice with severe punishment for slitting the family dog’s throat “just for fun.” Can you imagine the look on his devoted pet’s face looking up at him, thinking he is going to get some love from his human; only to be brutally harmed with a knife??!! Book this guy and throw away the key!!!!
Espiritu, 22, told police he liked to hurt dogs! Then why have them if you hate them enough to harm them??!! He should not only be punished severely for his actions but also be banned from coming anywhere near another animal. In fact, if you can do such brutality on an animal, what’s next; a child, another human???
Officers are not sure whether to charge Mr. Espiritu with a misdemeanor or felony! Really???? The justice system should not settle for anything less than a felony!! As the story goes, Metro Police responded to the 4000 block of Snead Drive and found a home drenched in blood with a black dog that appeared to be bleeding from its neck. In the background, the man’s mother was yelling to know why he would stab the dog. Espiritu responded “Because I wanted to. I like to hurt dogs.” The thing is that this “son” did not even live in the home. He was basically homeless and only visited now and then.
The action obviously happened in the middle of the night and Mr. Espiritu’s step-dad woke up when he heard a squeal of pain sound. He found Espiritu on the floor with a 6-inch knife in his hand and a pool of blood. The dog, Serenity collapsed nearby, bleeding profusely.
Before arresting Espiritu, the officer asked Espiritu if he was OK and if he had stabbed the dog in self-defense. “Nope. I just wanted to stab the dog,” Espiritu said. “So I sat on the floor and cut its neck.” Serenity was transported to an animal hospital, but bled to death. It is scary to know there are people like this out in the world who find pleasure in hurting animals for fun.

Las Vegas Township Justice and Clark County District Courts – Please ensure that this guy, Mr. Espiritu get prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for killing his family’s dog just because he felt like it. You know that if he can do this to a dog, he could very well harm humans for the same reason. He should be charged more but not less than a felony and be banned from coming anywhere near other animals for the rest of his life. This loving pet should not have been subjected to this abuse for no apparent reason. Book him and throw away the key!!!!!
