A viral video posted to Youtube showed a Hammond police officer abusing his K-9 by choking it and whipping it. The video sparked widespread outrage and Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. responded by ordering the police officer be immediately suspended:
Anybody who loves dogs as much as I do is always saddened and shocked anytime you hear of a dog's abuse. When you find out it happened with an employee of yours, it makes it that much more shocking and disturbing. Please know that the Hammond PD does not condone that type of behavior of any of it's officers, nor is it tolerated in this administration.Kudos to the Mayor for not making any excuses and claiming it's part of "training."
