Mother Assaulted, Arrested After Stepping in Front of a Cop Who was About to Shoot Her Dog

The Free Thought Project – by Matt Agorist

Parkersburg, WV — A disturbing video was submitted to the Free Thought Project this week which shows the courageous actions of one woman, and the cowardly actions of a West Virginia State Trooper.

The incident began after a neighborhood argument escalated to the point of a man calling the police to prevent further turmoil. The homeowner, Cliff, called the police after his neighbor allegedly threatened him. However, when the police showed up, they were more interested in Cliff’s dog than preventing any disturbance.  

Randall Hupp, the man who gave us the video, explains that after the cops had arrived, the situation was calm, but then they quickly got out of control.

Things were going fine and my son decided to film for posterity sake in case anything should happen. There were two dogs present in the area at the time of the video, a black dog which was the neighbors dog that was running loose…and Cliffs dog, which was chained up.

Cliff’s dog, which was on a chain, merely barked as the officer walked up to the home. His tail was still wagging, and he seemed to calm down immediately. However, the fact that this dog was on a chain, not growling, nor posing any threat whatsoever, was of no consequence to the state trooper who quickly pulled out his service pistol, took aim, and almost killed the dog.

Before the state trooper could shoot the dog, however, Hupp’s daughter, Tiffanie courageously stepped in between the dog and the officer to prevent the puppycide.

The state trooper, seemingly offended by the woman’s attempt to thwart his dog killing, then proceeded to attack Tiffanie. Hupp explained to the Free Thought Project what happened next,

The trooper approached with gun in hand, grabbed her by the arm and slammed her to the ground. After the troopers realized that they had been filmed, they entered the home illegally without warrant or probable cause and confiscated all digital devices including my 4-year-old grandson’s tablet. We only recently received the devices back and released the video.

For stopping the trooper from killing her dog and getting slammed to the ground in front of her 4-year-old son, Tiffanie was charged with misdemeanor obstruction.

To add insult to assault, the city is attempting to railroad Tiffanie by forcing her to use their public appointed defender, with obvious conflicts of interest.

Hupp explains,

The courts appointed her an attorney whom actually is married to a state trooper, and they have denied her request for new legal counsel. We have a hearing set for Thursday 9 am, the 13th of August. We have been informed that we have no legal grounds for a lawsuit, due to lack of physical injury. Although my 4-year-old grandson is now terrified of police, I’m told at every door, there will be no justice.

  1. Does that damn pig have such a huge problem with erectile dysfunction that the only way he can get his jollies is assaulting a girl trying to defend a helpless dog?!? Are these the kind of sick bastards we want having authority?!? What I saw in that video was attempted murder of a dog, assault on a girl, and false arrest! If that video does not prove to someone that we are in a militaristic police state, then nothing will!

  2. Doesn’t the girl understand that American jurors are eager to sue every police department in the country out of business? She should be celebrating. Get a lawyer and sue for the moon. If you have the video, you win the case.

  3. Long ago, it was said that police departments had about 1% scum on the force. I have to believe the percentage is much greater today. I’m sure there are many reasons, but a growing lack of morality, has to be a major contributor. Too many in law enforcement, federal, state and local, are operating with no moral compass. This cancer will continue to grow until is becomes intolerable and results in open warfare.

  4. I think they have been pushing the older good cops out and bringing in ones they know will be mental cases and then giving them oppressive training techniques and sending them out. It has turned the police into the enemy in many cases. It is rare to see any of this sort of thing in Canada.

    1. “I think they have been pushing the older good cops out and bringing in ones they know will be mental cases and then giving them oppressive training techniques and sending them out.”

      Yep. That’s basically what they are doing. You can tell when you look at the older cops as the younger cops go crazy right in front of them. They have this cringed look of shame on their face and feel helpless to do anything because they don’t want to cause trouble for themselves or the people they work with and feel there is nothing they can do about it but just bite their lip and take it.

  5. Welcome to West Virginia.

    Had there been no witnesses, this would’ve likely been a different story than just a LEO throwing her to the ground because she stood between his gun and her chained dog.
