GRAPHIC: CA Social Worker Arrested for Murdering Neighbor’s Dog

Southern California resident Alexis Lemmon [__posted__](https://www.facebook.com/alexis.lemmon/videos/984503208254320/) the video late this past Saturday night – which you can see below – and it’s already been viewed over 100,000 times.

Lemmon’s ominous caption about the man who murdered her father’s dog with a rifle says it all:

> “This man Christopher Samuel SLAUGHTERED my dad’s dog right in front of him. He locked him in his yard, shot him, then shot him a second time in the head to make my dad even more angry.”

Debbie Meindl-Lemmon, stepmother of the dog’s owner, Michael Lemmon [__said__](http://www.pe.com/articles/dog-798739-range-neighbor.html), “He was a very sweet dog, he wasn’t a threat.”

The 54-year old Samuel was [__arrested__](http://www.riversidesheriff.org/press/per16-0401.asp) on a warrant issued due of the incident, by Riverside County Sheriffs and booked for animal cruelty and negligent discharge of a firearm.

The Lemmons were worried that Samuel would get special treatment by local police in their “Inland Empire” community, because of his government job as a social worker.

Alexis Lemmon finished her Facebook post by saying, “*Please do not let this murderer get away with this just because he his a social worker! This is evil and I am TRAUMATIZED, the dog wasn’t even attacking, he was running away with his tail between his legs. You do not have to watch but at least share. (PERRIS, CA)*”

But even Riverside County Animal Services got involved in processing the crime scene, and reassuring the community in a statement on [__Facebook__](https://www.facebook.com/Riverside-County-Animal-Services-162246003836827/) that:

> The dog was inside the closed yard of the shooter’s property. Riverside County Sheriff’s deputies responded. Our agency responded too. We are going to work with our fellow partner agencies in this investigation. This is still an open investigation. But, in light of this video, and since it will likely generate much discussion, we want to ensure the public that we will do everything we can to make sure a thorough investigation related to the dog’s death is pursued.

Local [__reports__](http://abc7.com/news/man-arrested-for-shooting-killing-neighbors-dog-near-perris/1274090/) say that the video doesn’t tell the entire story, but that Michael Lemmon had threatened to get his pit bull breed dog to attack Samuel.

However, the video doesn’t depict an aggressive dog, but rather a scared animal who was retreating from the armed Samuel when he fired the lethal shots.

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.
