PETITION #2 http://www.thepetitionsite.com/2/justice-4-karley-convict-glynn-johnson
IF TEARS COULD BUILD A STAIRWAY...AND MEMORIES A LANE...WE'D WALK RIGHT UP TO HEAVEN...AND BRING YOU HOME AGAIN...
KARLEY...a precious, defenseless, voiceless 6 month old puppy. She was taken from her mommy & daddy at the hands of another.
Karleys parents, JEFFERY & SHELLEY TOOLE...I feel like they are part of my family. They are wonderful people & their hearts are hurting.
Karleys life was taken by a 2 legged animal. An abuser. This person doesn't deserve to be classified as a human. This person CAN'T possibly have a heart. This person CAN'T possibly have a soul. If he did, there's NO way he could have done what he did to this poor fur baby.
Here's Karleys story. Karley was 6 months old. Since I didn't have a date for her birth, I gave her the date for MOTHER'S DAY. She is a German Shepard mix. Look at her face...look at those beautiful eyes...look at those cute ears...look at that fur that looks so soft.
On Monday, Nov. 3rd., Karley got out of her yard..(there's speculation that the suspect opened her gate). A neighbor, Travis Staggs, found her & was walking her back to her home when the suspect approached. The suspect told Travis that HE would return Karley to her home. It was at this time that the suspect, who is with the Los Angeles County Fire Dept as an Assistant Fire Chief, started hitting Karley with a rock. Then he got on top of Karley & started beating her with CLOSED fists. And then, if this wasn't ENOUGH abuse, he attempted to break the pups jaws.
When Travis saw what was taking place, he ran down his driveway & up the suspects driveway & tried to pull the suspect off of this poor pup. At that time, the suspect had his hands in Karleys mouth, trying to break her jaws. When Travis was trying to get the suspect off of the pup, the pup was able to stumble away from her attacker & fall into a bush. This poor baby, after getting beat so badly, STILL had the will to live. Karleys will though was NOT enough.
Karley was rushed to her vet. Once she was examined, her vet broke the news to her owners...she needed to be released of her pain. She needed to take her journey to the bridge because of her injuries. Karley suffered a broken jaw, crushed skull, brain damage & a crushed ear canal. She suffered other injuries that are too horrible to print. I know that when her spirit left her body, she was flown to the bridge on the back of CASPER & met by ALL of our ANGELS. She was NOT alone. And hopefully, she was NOT afraid. She was at PEACE.
According to the Riverside County Sheriff's Dept., they received 2 police radio calls on Monday, Nov. 3rd...1 came from a woman saying that her husband had been ATTACKED by a canine. The other call was from a male stating his neighbor had beaten someones dog with a rock.
The suspect CLAIMS SELF DEFENSE. He told authorities that this pup had bit him that's why he was beating her. This suspect is a large person. IF this pup had bit him, he could have stopped the bite WITHOUT beating her to within an inch of her life. This attack was NOT the first attack on a defenseless pup. According to the Toole's, the suspect shot their older dog in the eyes with a pellet gun which BLINDED their dog. He also shot another neighbors dog in the eye with a pellet gun. That neighbor was able to have the pellet removed without their dog being left without sight. And there are other reports of abuse towards humans. But for him to attack an innocent animal is UNACCEPTABLE.
As of today, Tuesday, Nov. 11th., the suspect is in HIDING. To me, this is COWARDLY. If this was self defense as he claims, then WHY is he hiding? He's hiding because he knows he MURDERED this young puppy. He's hiding because he knows there are people out there who WANT & DESERVE anwers. He's hiding because he's a COWARD. He's hiding because he's an ABUSER. He's hiding because he knows there are people out there who would like to see him get the same beating that he gave Karley.
Pending the outcome of the Riverside County Sheriff's investigation, the case MAY be referred to the Riverside County District Attorneys office. MAY be referred??? There's NO question about this...it SHOULD be turned over to them ASAP. According to the CALIFORNIA PENAL CODE, Section 597 makes it a FELONY for ANYONE to MALICIOUSLY & INTENTIONALLY MAIM, TORTURE OR WOUND A LIVING ANIMAL. According to the witness of this beating, ALL of that applies.
A demonstration is planned for this coming Saturday, Nov. 15th. The owners, Fire Dept. personnel & the community will be in attendance. Karley deserves ALL of the outpouring of love that has come her way since this horrible story broke.
I have asked Lelja to help me in getting a petition started to get this MONSTER off the streets of California. As long as he is walking free of any crime, he WILL do this again. NO & I repeat, NO animal is safe!!
KARLEY...you are such a precious soul...with a heart so full of love...a heart that will no longer beat. You're with MAC, who can relate to your story. You're with Cole, Aker, Ursa, Mandy, Lady Wendy, Bucky, Nikki, Puck, Coco, Starr, Walker, Malibu & so many bridge kids. I know that Cole has taken you under his wings & will ALWAYS be there to comfort you. You are surrounded by loving ANGELS who will show you what LOVE is all about. They will shower you with so much love & touch you with gentle hands. Please DON'T be afraid. They say that when a young fur baby is taken from this earth, it's because a HUMAN baby has had to leave his/her parents & go to heaven...and that our young fur babies are needed to comfort the human babies. I know that you will do such a wonderful job with a baby. Your fur will keep that baby warm. Your kisses will calm him/her. You truly ARE an ANGEL.
KARLEY...make sure you send your REAL mommie & daddy LOTS of signs so they will know that you ARE OK. They really NEED to feel your love. Look down from HEAVEN & send your mommie & daddy LOTS of smooches. They miss you terribly. Your mommie was talking on the news & she couldn't control her tears. They are heartbroken!
As I write this, my heart is breaking. So many of us would give ANYTHING to have just ONE MORE DAY with our Bridge children. We all love our babies. I can imagine what Karley felt. She felt FEAR...PAIN...ALONE. I can ONLY imagine that Karley was wondering what she had done to this person to make him do this to her. Did she bark at him? Did she NOT want to let him pet her? Did she poop on his lawn? WHAT DID SHE DO TO DESERVE THIS BEATING? I can't imagine how anyone could EVER hit an animal...NO MATTER WHAT THEY DID.
I gave Karley this residency because she DESERVES this. She deserves a FOREVER home at the bridge. She deserves to feel the love of the Bridge family. She needs to know that her death was NOT in vain. That we will do WHATEVER we have to do to get this monster off the street.
WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK KARLEY!!! YOU ARE LOVED BY MANY BUT KNOWN BY FEW.
We will ALL look up to the heavenly skies & send our love to you, precious Karley. You're a very BRIGHT star now.
Your adopted Bridge mommie,
11.12.2008...Karley, so many people have read your story. And so many people are willing to do WHATEVER needs to be done to get that monster behind bars. You have a new family here at the bridge. And we will open our arms & hearts to your real mommie & daddy.
11.13.2008...Hello precious Karley. Well, here's some GOOD news, I hope. Your case has been sent to the District Attorney's office. We will ALL keep our fingers crossed that the DA will go ahead with this case & that charges will be filed. Your mommie & daddy plan on taking your killer to Court. And I KNOW they will win. Please help them with this. This will be VERY emotionally draining for them. BUT we will be their support system. ALL of us here want to see this monster behind bars. You are always on our minds & constantly in our hearts. WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!! xoxo
RAINBOW BRIDGE, the poem...
Just this side of heaven is a place called RAINBOW BRIDGE.
ALL the animals who had been ill & old are restored to health & vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole & strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days & times gone by. The animals are HAPPY & content, EXCEPT for one small thing: they each MISS someone VERY special to them, who had to be left behind.
They ALL run & play together, but the day comes when ONE suddenly stops & looks into the distance. Her bright eyes are intent. Her body quivers. Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her faster & faster.
YOU have been spotted, & when you & your SPECIAL friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, NEVER to be parted again. The HAPPY kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, & you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from you life but NEVER absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge TOGETHER...
Sweet Karley...this is how I see you greeting your humans. I know you'll ALWAYS remember their faces & loving arms. xoxo
THERE IS A WEBSITE FOR MISS KARLEY....justice4Karley.com
Precious Karley...your mommie & daddy are doing EVERYTHING in their power to get justice for you. I have promised them that I will do the same. I will do ANYTHING they ask me to do. I know you are watching over them & as soon as you have your wing lessons, you will be able to float down & visit them in their dreams.
There are so many people that are willing to help with this case. That makes my heart smile.
I am looking forward to meeting you when it is my time to join my babies at the bridge. I know you will be with them. They are going to look out for you forever. xoxo
11.19.2008...your mommie just wrote me the most touching e-mail. They miss you so much. She told me that she's having such a hard time controlling her tears. I told her that her tears are what makes the RAINBOW at the bridge. She will be visiting your page soon. She said she NEVER imagined that you would have a home here. Your family loves you VERY, VERY much.
11.20.2008...Karley, you are LOVED so much by ALL of the people here at the Bridge. They are on the war-path. They have sent hundreds of E-mails to EVERYONE they know to get them to sign the petition for you. And I am working on the petition for you through Care2. It will be ready in a couple of days. WE ARE GOING TO GET JUSTICE FOR YOU SWEET GIRL. There's no need for you to worry about what is taking place here...we all will be OK. Our hearts are broken though. xoxo
11.25.2008...hello you cutie pie. Your petition is doing very well. We have almost 1100 signatures. We are doing EVERYTHING possible to get THAT person charged with FELONY ANIMAL ABUSE. We won't stop Karley. Your family will be spending their first Thanksgiving without you. But I know you WILL be in their thoughts. And I know that they will be giving THANKS for having you in their life, even though it was for just a few months. I know that Cole & the gang will make sure that you send your family lots of smooches on that day. You are so loved Karley. xoxo
11.26.2008...well, it's almost Thanksgiving. This is your first holiday away from your family. They miss you so much. I do know that they will be giving THANKS for having you in their lives, even though it was for just a short time. I know that Cole, Aker, Ursa, Mandy, Lady Wendy & Bucky will make sure that you have plenty to eat. And the kitties, they will play all of the games with you. Make sure you send your mommie & daddy lots of love tomorrow. You are in my heart Karley. WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!! xoxoxo
11.27.2008...HAPPY THANKSGIVING you precious, little Angel. I know you're going to have such a great time today. It would have been nice if you could have experienced your first Thanksgiving with your mommie & daddy. And I know they are missing tripping over you while they are trying to make dinner. ALL dogs find it hard to stay OUT of the kitchen on turkey day. Cole will make sure that you have LOTS of turkey & the yummie things that go with it. I know that you were not my fur baby but I will give THANKS today for being allowed to be a part of your life as of now. And you know that you are safe with all of my babies that have made their journey to the bridge. Yesterday, there was the most beautiful rainbow...I know deep in my heart, that it was sent by you, Cole, Aker, Ursa, Mandy, Lady Wendy, Bucky & all the kitties. It was your way of telling us HELLO & that EVERYTHING WILL BE OK. And it was your way of sending YOUR LOVE. WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!! xoxoxo
12.03.2008...Hello pretty girl. Your mommie & daddy held a protest today in front of the Courthouse to get the DA's attention. I know you're so proud of them. Last night, they were on the John & Ken radio show & thanks to that appearance, your petition had over 1000 signatures in less than 24 hrs. Isn't that great? I PROMISE you sweet girl that WE WILL GET JUSICE. And if that DA doesn't do the RIGHT thing, I will then go after him by seeking a "RECALL" of him.
WE know that you have your wings & that you're beautiful. Rain lots & lots of love onto your parents. They miss you so very much. They are doing their best!! WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!!
12.16.2008...KARLEY...WE DID IT!!! Johnson was arrested & charged with FELONY ANIMAL CRUELTY. At 4pm California time, he was taken from his home in handcuffs!!! We know that this is only the FIRST hurdle but we jumped it & now we will be going to the next one. YOU kept us going pretty girl. Your mommie wrote to me the other night & she was saying that she didn't know how much more she could take. I told her that I would NOT let her stop. I know that you are dancing at the bridge with all of your friends. Just keep sending us the strength to keep going. I know you will. WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!!...xoxoxo
12.22.2008...Well baby girl, today was a day of anger. Johnson held a news conference. They called your DANGEROUS & VICIOUS. Those words BROKE your mommie & daddy's hearts. What's important is that WE know you are NOT dangerous or vicious. They also said that you were NOT a puppy...they said you were an ADULT with ADULT TEETH. LIES...nothing but LIES. Johnson said that YOU got loose on HIS property & while he was escorting you home, YOU TURNED ON HIM & bit him severely on his hands, arms & legs. And that you then put a vice like grip on his hand & that's when he HAD to defend himself. He said that he has spent 31 yrs with the Fire Dept saving dogs from peril. AND his Attorney said that Johnson did NOT k*ll you. NO...he just BEAT YOU WITHIN AN INCH OF YOUR LIFE. He beat you so badly that you HAD to be put down. Karley...do me a favor. Every night that Johnson goes to sleep, I want you to MAKE him look at your precious face. He is an evil man. We will make sure that he gets what he deserves. Don't you worry. WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!! xoxo
12.23.2008...MERRY CHRISTMAS precious. Are you ready for the big celebration at the bridge? This will be your first Christmas away from your mommie, daddy, brother & sister. And this is their first Christmas without you. I spoke with your mommie today. She said that she just couldn't get into the holiday spirit. She couldn't decorate...couldn't put up the tree. She misses you so very much. She said that she still cries for you. And that they plan on moving. Not only is it hard to look at Johnson but it's very hard to look at the spot where he took your young life. Your family had a vote...they ALL want to move. Is your singing voice ready for all of the caroles you will be singing? And did Cole help hang your stocking? Don't let anyone get you under the mistletoe!!! Make sure you send lots of smooches to your family so that they know you are doing OK. WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS KARLEY!!! xoxo
01.01.2009...HAPPY NEW YEAR precious. Did you have a good time at the party? I hope you did. And I hope that Cole & everyone else is taking good care of you. You know how much we all miss you. You have so many people that never knew you that miss you. You have touched so many hearts. You will always be in my heart. WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!! xoxo
01.05.2009...hello precious Karley. I just thought I would let you know that someone has written a song JUST for you. And it's beautiful. I am going to see if we can get it placed on your page. I will let the people who visit you know where they can listen to it.
WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!! xoxo
01.13.2009...Today was Court day. As figured, Johnson pled NOT GUILTY. On Feb 20th, everyone will be back in Court. On this day, Johnson's attorney will ask for the charge to be dropped, lowered, etc. We WON'T let that happen pretty girl. Help your mommie & daddy get through that day. You are loved & missed so very much. WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!!...xoxo
02.11.2009...hello sweet girl...how are you today? I spoke with your mommie today. There will be a fundraiser/dogwalk/candlelight vigil for you on the 28th of this month. I am looking forward to meeting your mommie & daddy. Please watch over them...your assailant is suing your parents. I will be back to tell you what he is saying about them. Give them the strength to carry on. I know that I will. WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!!...xoxo
02.12.2009...well, I just can't believe what Johnson is trying to do to your mommie & daddy. He is counter suing your parents. He CLAIMS that he has PERMANENT nerve damage to his thumb where you supposedly bit him. AND he retired from the FD 2 weeks ago with his FULL pension. I didn't think I could dislike this man anymore than I already do...BUT...
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY our sweet, baby girl...we all miss you with all of our heart...xoxo
02.20.2009...hello pretty girl. Well, today was Court day. Nothing happened. The DA refused to make any kind of deal & Johnson didn't make a deal. So, the next Court day will be April 13th.. 0830, in Dept 41. Keep giving your mommie & daddy the strength they need to keep going. I know that ALL of you were in that Courtroom today. I know that Cole was probably giving Johnson that low sounding snarl that he does. Give my baby a smooch for me. Karley...we love you to the moon & back!!!...xoxo
03.01.2009...hello sweet angel girl...how are you today? Yesterday was YOUR day. Many people met at Venice Beach...some with their beautiful fur babies & some without. We met there to CELEBRATE your LIFE & ask for justice to be served. I know you are so proud of your mommie & daddy. This is tough on them. Your mommie said that this past week was a tough one & she doesn't understand why. She said she has cried so much for you. Well, on March 3rd, you have a marker coming up. On that date, you will have been at the bridge for 4 months. She doesn't realize that those markers sneak up on us. And some we can deal with & others we just can't. I think this one is one that she can't deal with. For me, it was the first time that I met your mommie & daddy. They ARE wonderful, caring people. I will ALWAYS be there for them. We all do this because we ALL love our fur babies. And I know that you, Cole, Aker, Ursa, Mandy, Lady Wendy, Bucky, those beautiful danes, those puppies & all of the other bridge kids...you are the ones that keep us going. Just when we think we can't do it anymore, I feel your presence. I feel Cole all around me...he's telling me to keep going...keep pushing...he sent me to the rainbow bridge site for a reason. To meet so many people that can help get laws passed...petitions signed...to help the fur babies that were NOT as fortunate as him. You WERE loved by your humans. I can tell. I just won't stop.!!! And neither will the people that I met yesterday. So pretty girl...run fast, play hard & sleep well. WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!!...xoxo
To EVERYONE that reads this story...PLEASE, PLEASE...if you witness abuse to an animal or a human...MAKE THAT CALL. You don't have to give your name!! Don't let this happen again. We MUST STOP ALL forms of abuse. Thank you.
03.15.2009...Hello pretty girl...how are you today? Today, we held another dogwalk/fundraiser. It was wonderful. It was a beautiful day at Huntington Beach. A little on the windy side though. A lot of people came out to show their love for you Karley. And to show your mommie & daddy support. When we released the balloons, I know you reached out & grabbed the one that your mommie let go. And I know you are holding onto that balloon. It broke my heart to see all of those balloons heading towards you. You are what keeps us going. WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!!..xoxo
04.03.2009...well, your mommie & daddy head to Court on April 15th. I know you will be there...right by their side. Make sure you take the gang with you for moral support. xoxo
04.12.2009...Happy Easter pretty girl. You are going to have so much fun at the bridge today. I hope you find lots of eggs. Stay with Mandy...she will help you. Tomorrow is your Heather's birthday. Make sure you send her lots of smooches. We sent her a cake. WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!!..xoxoxo
04.13.2009...I have added some photos. Two of them are from doggyspace.com. The other photo is from the night of the beating. The vet is holding a ruler at the top of Karley's head showing how much swelling was taking place inside her head. And it shows her eyes. This photo breaks my heart. This NEVER should have happened. She had been taunted all day by her abuser. Karley, I love you.
04.14.2009...HAPPY BIRTHDAY dear Karley. I gave you this date because a special little girl in my life has this date for her birthday. Two special little girls now share this birthday. xoxo
04.16.2009...the third photo from the end has the following words: IN MEMORY OF THE ABUSED, ABANDONED, THE VICTIMS OF MAN. IN LIFE, THEY ONLY SEEKED TO LOVE & BE LOVED. IN DEATH, THEY FOUND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. xoxo

07.09.2009... I saw this on a screen at the Michael Jackson Memorial & it said... "there's nothing that can't be done IF we raise our voice as one." That is so true.
When tomorrow starts without me,
10.14.2009...Happy Fall pretty girl. I have not been to visit & I am so sorry. We have been very busy trying to get the WORD out to everyone about abuse. And you would be so proud of your mommie & daddy. They are staying strong. We start trial Nov. 10th to get justice for you. Watch over your mommie & daddy. Be there with them during this trial. WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!!...xoxo
