Boise Woman Who Punched Dog In Face Will Not Be Charged
Remember back in May when the video of a woman wearing boxing gloves and repeatedly punching a German Shepard in the face went viral? Unfortunately that was a local video. Once the Idaho Humane Society got a hold of it they launched and investigation. Today a decision was made on how the authorities would proceed with the case and much to my surprise the woman in the video will not be charged.
In an interview with ktvb a spokesperson from the City of Boise issued the following statement:
"The City declined charges due to insufficient evidence to prosecute under relevant state and city code. We have an ethical obligation to not proceed on cases where there is insufficient evidence to meet the burden of proof."
I'm no expert but after watching the video how is this possible? Was the video edited? If not and the video is what we've all seen, how is it insufficient evidence? SMH.
