Cop Who Slit Dog’s Throat After Superficial Bite to Receive $45,000

The Baltimore cop who was found not guilty last year for slitting a dog’s throat after it had bitten a woman will receive $45,000 in back pay for the ten months he spent on unpaid suspension.

Jeffrey Bolger, 50, who is now retired, slit Nala’s throat in June 2014 after the Shar-Pei had escaped from a backyard and bit a woman on the hand.

The woman, who was left with a superficial wound, called police to have the dog captured.

Bolger and his partner, Thomas Schmidt, responded and tried to capture Nala with a dog-control pole, but they ended up strangling the dog.

Witnesses said Schmidt held the dog down while Bolger slit its throat.

“I’m going to gut this fucking thing,” Bolger was heard saying.

Even Baltimore police commanders said the incident was “outrageous and unacceptable.”

Both were initially charged with animal cruelty, but charges against Schmidt were dismissed and Bolger was forced to go to trial last year.

However, a judge found him not guilty, agreeing that he was “acting in the interest of safety” of the community.

And now, because he was suspended from June 2014 to March 2015 before he was forced to retire, Bolger will receive $45,000, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
