Rapper DMX possibly charged with dog abuse and dog fighting - April 18th 2009, 06:04 AM

Quote:
Authorities seized 12 distressed pit bulls and a large cache of weapons from the Arizona home of rapper DMX yesterday, MTV says, after receiving a tip that the dogs were housed in inhumane conditions. The hip-hop star, whose real name is Earl Simmons, wasn’t home at the time of the raid, but officials said they would like to question him.

No arrests have been made, but police, who found the charred remains of at least one dog in DMX’s backyard, said he was being investigated for dogfighting. The rapper’s attorney suggested his caretaker was to blame for the dogs’ conditions. In 2002, DMX was busted in New Jersey for animal abuse and later filmed a PSA against animal abuse.

The attorney in this article is quite funny, although I have a feeling that because he's a rapper and did do some acting, he may get away with it. I'm sure there is substantial evidence indicating he did participate in dog abuse. Hopefully he gets charged, jail time/prison, death or just jail time. Doubt it though but I hope he will get charged.

DMX's real name is Earl? HAhahahhahaa.

Not so sure if he'll get away without some jail time...
There was some famous football player about a year ago who got caught for the same thing.
He had huge fines and was sentenced to 2 years in jail. Which isn't as severe of a punishment as he should have received, but at least its something.

He's famous, therefore he'll get off with a slap on the wrist. I personally think that the penalties for dog fighting and animal abuse should be more severe.

I've never even heard of him.

If he did this, he should be punished like anyone else.

I think if it was just the way he had the dogs contained, he'd get away with a light fine.
The charred remains of a dog though...I dunno, that can be pretty damning.

Kel: Michael Vick is the guy you're talking about. Yeah he got fines and prison time....But his football career was basically over, and everyone pretty much hates him now. Not like he needs more money anyway..

As for DMX, I think he'll get some type of similar punishment. Maybe less harsh, who knows.

Well the charred remains do seem to be rather convincing of other abuse and the way he kept that many dogs in such poor conditions, I do hope he does get a nice amount of jail time or at the least, experiences it himself.

i don't see how people can force dogs to fight.
i've seen videos and it's just sick.
people who do that are just wrong and disgusting.

i kinda liked DMX but now i'm having a change of heart.

They train the dogs to be vicious and wanting to just tear someone/thing apart. Get two things that want to do this together and you got some action. I'm not saying I support it, I find it rather pointless to have dogfighting. Dogs fight amongst themselves for various reasons, not due to being abused then fighting to give some entertainment.
