REHIRED: Minnesota Deputy Convicted Of Drunkenly Beating K9 Partner

A Minnesota sheriff’s deputy who was [__convicted of animal cruelty__](https://photographyisnotacrime.com/2016/02/18/minnesota-deputy-convicted-for-abusing-k9-partner-while-drunk-keeps-job-despite-22000-petition-signatures/) on his own K9 service dog in [__a video recorded beating__](https://photographyisnotacrime.com/2015/06/28/minnesota-deputy-arrested-after-caught-on-camera-beating-k9-partner/) has been [__rehired__](http://www.twincities.com/2016/11/01/ramsey-county-reluctantly-accepts-return-of-deputy-who-beat-dog/) by the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office.

The Law Enforcement Labor Services police union fought to keep the convicted criminal cop Brett Barry on public payrolls.

[__State arbitrator__](https://mn.gov/bms/assets/Vernon2_tcm1075-226140.pdf) Gil Vernon decided that the deputy will be forgiven for his rampage, even though it was a drunken frenzy that would land any regular citizen in jail for assaulting a police officer – his K9 partner.

Ironically, [__Barry will now be paid__](http://www.twincities.com/2016/11/01/ramsey-county-reluctantly-accepts-return-of-deputy-who-beat-dog/) to guard Ramsey County’s detention unit, instead of spending time behind its bars to repay society for his crime.

The Minnesota deputy didn’t just beat his dog either.

Deputy Barry’s drunken on-duty rampage included previously undisclosed sexual assaults by the 20-year veteran which remained buried in the Ramsey Sheriffs internal affairs records until today, seventeen months after the incident, according to the [__StarTribune__](http://www.startribune.com/ramsey-county-deputy-reinstated-after-beating-dog-allegedly-made-unwanted-advances-on-bar-patrons/401379265/):

> Ramsey County sheriff’s deputy Brett A. Berry forcibly kissed and groped patrons at the Black Bear Casino before beating his K-9 partner in frustration several minutes later, according to documents released Tuesday. An internal affairs investigation into Berry’s actions on June 15, 2015, said that he acted in an “aggressive manner” toward three people while drinking at the casino’s Cobalt lounge in Carlton, Minn.
> “His conduct in the Cobalt Lounge toward [redacted] patrons was disrespectful,” said the investigation report. “He agreed that his conduct … was inappropriate.” Berry, 49, of Oakdale, pleaded guilty in January to beating his K-9 partner, Boone, but the full extent of his unwanted advances at the bar hadn’t been disclosed until the sheriff’s office released documents from its investigation Tuesday.

Judging by the redacted [__blow-by-blow__](http://www.startribune.com/ramsey-county-deputy-reinstated-after-beating-dog-allegedly-made-unwanted-advances-on-bar-patrons/401379265/) about “someone identified in the investigation only as “off duty [redacted],” whom he grabbed by the shirt.

When security confronted the deputy, he demanded, “Who the [expletive] am I harassing? I have a right to know.”

The report describes three instances of sexual assault, but identities and genders of the victims were redacted.

Twenty minutes later, Barry beat his K9 partner brutally in the infamous attack that led to his guilty plea for animal cruelty charges.

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.
