Your insensitivity is appalling. The way you degrade this person’s pet (tantamount to a child for some) to a “mutt in heat” is reprehensible (City Desk, 12/11). Judy was a wonderful dog. For you to trivialize the loss of this dog is both inconsiderate and rude. You even managed to get the owner’s name wrong. The 6-year-old child, who had to witness his pet being run down and the subsequent kick in the groin you deliver in your article, has my sympathy. The blatant disregard for the feelings of this family is pathetic. You should be ashamed. Fortunately, if you are ever run over by a truck, I take comfort in knowing MPD will not have waste time writing a report for you either!
