Charges are Dropped Against an Army Vet who was Arrested in GA for Smashing a Car Window to Save Dog On Wednesday, May 15th, 2015, I posted a blog article (which you can read here)… Scroll down to read more!




On Wednesday, May 15th, 2015, I posted a blog article (which you can read here) about a U.S. Army Vet who had been arrested in Georgia for smashing in a car window to save a baking dog’s life. Apart from being bothersome to me (animal abuse stories never sit well with me) I was fascinated by the fact that Georgia law permitted such an arrest; it (GA law) effectively immunizes the window smasher but ONLY WHERE the intended target, the life to be saved, is human.  




In other words, if Michael Hammons (pictured below) had smashed in the car window to save a human child then he would not have been subject to arrest, but because he acted compassionately to save a dog, and because the dog’s owner insisted that he be arrested for smashing her car window, he was taken into custody and charged.


  

That is what I call a stupid law..

Today, in an act of sanity, and reportedly with the blessing of the alleged “victim”, the Athens-Clarke County, GA DA’s office dropped the charges against Michael.   Score one for common sense.  That and….
