A man from Lake Wales, Florida this week was arrested after he released five dogs to attack a poodle owned by a man who he called a “Muslim terrorist.”
Azard Baksh told WFLA that the incident happened on Monday when his poodle, Myra, had stopped to relieve herself near 72-year-old Jackie Hammock’s home.
“He came out the side gate. He was nude. Yep, completely nude,” Baksh recalled.
Baksh said that Hammock had threatened to release the dogs previously, telling the poodle’s owner he was a “Muslim terrorist, Islamic Muslim terrorist. Go back where you come from.”
But on Monday, Hammock followed through with the threat, and sent his five dogs to attack the poodle.
“The big mother dog came and grabbed Myra, shook her like a teddy bear. And I started screaming,” Baksh explained. “He started calling me names and said, ‘Don’t walk in this street, you Muslim terrorist. Stay out of here.'”
Hammock’s wife eventually called the dogs back, but Hammock released the dogs a second time. Again, his wife called for the dogs to return, and then Hammock allegedly released them a third time.
Witnesses told police that Hammock was nude each time he came to the door to release the dogs.
“He was standing at his door and I was sitting right there. I had a straight shot. It was very disturbing,” neighbor Sue White said.
Myra was taken to a local veterinarian, but the poodle did not survive the night due to internal injuries, according to WFLA.
Officers told WFLA that they had to “plead” with Hammock to put on clothes, and the man admitted to sending his dog to attack Myra.
“Oh yes sir, absolutely. I hate that terrorist prick,” Hammock reportedly said.
Hammock is facing charges of cruelty to animals, aggravated assault and exposure of sexual organs.

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle: The markets finally realized the economic crisis is linked to the health crisis
MSNBC market expert Stephanie Ruhle told Brian Williams on Wednesday that the reason Americans saw the stock market fall this week is that they have finally realized that things aren't getting any better.
Williams asked if the numbers this week are different from normal pre-election years.
"This is quite different," said Ruhle. "The markets have woken up to the fact that this health crisis is directly linked to the economic crisis. The markets can't thrive when we don't have a national plan to deal with the coronavirus. And you look at the GDP, you know that tomorrow, you led the show with it, the president is going to say, 'We're back, baby! With the greatest economy ever.' That's not the case. We have been seeing improvements. We are on the road to recovery. But even if we get 30 percent, 35 percent GDP, which would be positive, it's far from saying we're back."

Brett Kavanaugh revised his Wisconsin ruling after Vermont official’s demands — but it still contains the lies
Supreme Court Justice revised his Wisconsin opinion after a Vermont official complained that he misrepresented the way the state dealt with the election amid the pandemic. The problem, however, is that his corrections only cleaned up the sloppy language.
While it no longer appears like a high school mock trial assignment, it still lies about the example he gave in the Vermont details.
