Cop Shoots Dog With an AR-15 During a 5-Year-Old’s Birthday Party

The “blank-faced” officer could hear “every one of these kids screaming and crying” as he fired the shot that ended Opie’s life.



This is an absolutely horrendous story.  I have no pleasure in sharing this news, and I don’t want to see it any more than you do.  But this is egregious, and it needs to stop.  He won’t even be charged for it, because his superior officer says that he was acting within his duty by shooting a dog in a fenced yard.  That’s why we need to make this heartless murderer – Wynnewood Police Department’s Josh Franklin – known for his heinous crime.

Eli Malone’s birthday will probably always be a painful reminder of what has probably been the worst day in his very young life.

“We had just brought the kids in to give them cake and ice cream,” Vickie Malone told the Daily News. “We weren’t even in the house five minutes and then ‘bang!’”

“Mama, something wrong with Opie,” Eli cried.

Everyone hurried to the window to see the three-year-old American bulldog-pit bull mix lying on the ground.  The adults rushed outside to find him “kicking and gasping for air” on one side of the fence as Franklin stood on the other.

Rio Youngblood, Vickie’s son and Opie’s owner, asked the officer why he shot his dog.  But as he lay dying, the family knew that there was no saving him, and asked the officer to put Opie out of his misery.

“He walks slowly out to his car gets an AR-15 and points it at the dog and pulls the trigger,” Rio said.  “He fires another round and it ended my dog’s life. He lowered his head and drove off.”

The “blank-faced” cop could hear “every one of these kids screaming and crying” as he shot Opie again.

Franklin said that Opie apparently tried to attack him through the fence.  But the Malones don’t buy his story.

“The dog cannot jump the fence,” Vickie said.  “The gates to our yard are tied with wire and shoe string. The dog could maybe have gotten his head through the fence but he wouldn’t have been able to open it.”

The reason Franklin was there was because he allegedly had a warrant for a man whose last known address was this one.  But the case was from 10 years ago.  The Malones have lived at the address for a year, and Franklin knew that.

“Officer Franklin had been to the house twice before,” Rio said.  “Opie was chained on the front porch. They knew Opie was here, too.”

“He said that he was looking for Shon McNiel,” Vickie commented. “I said ‘There’s no one here named Shon McNiel. Who the hell is Shon McNiel?’”

Police Chief Ken Moore fully stands by his officer.  He claimed Opie attacked Franklin as he was coming around the corner of the house.  However, this contradicts what Franklin originally stated, which was that the dog attacked him through the fence and he had to kick him off.  Opie was shot and died near the gate.

“We have a right to defend ourselves so I stand by my officer in the decision that he made.”

Rio’s son Vrylend is devastated by the murder of Opie.

“I came outside last night and he’s on the trampoline,” Rio explained.  “He said ‘I’m singing to Opie’s heart. I miss him.’”

People are rightfully enraged about Franklin’s unnecessary shooting of Opie, and have started a fake Wynnewood Police Department Facebook page to castigate them.

    1. Does hoping that make you better than him Dale? Based on your comment you are a reprehensible person.

      1. @ Ted C:

        The fact that you’re essentially defending this POS cop makes YOU the reprehensible one here!

    2. So you want innocent people to die for something they didn’t do? Why should his children be burned alive if he was the one that shot the dog? You are stark raving mad.

    3. Dale, that makes as bad as, or worse than, an incompetent officer with a ball-less chief of police. No wonder people distrust or hate cops… and I speak as an ex-cop.

    4. Why is it in this day and age, that police shoot.. kill.. then hide behind the color of authority? It doesn’t matter if it’s a dog or a human; they are well aware that there will be no prosecution because they cower behind laws that are long overdue for change. Also, one comment on the cop that shot the counselor in the leg: He obviously is hearing impaired with bad eyesight, and a terrible shot; and yet he is on the SWAT team?? That police agency needs to sets it’s recruitment standards a little higher. I’m all for hiring the handicapped, but let’s be real:

  1. That was wrong in so many ways first of all the cop should had never entered the yard and he also knew that person did not live there how heartless can u be it seems like u did it for enjoyment not protection I guess sense u can’t shoot somebody u shoot a family dog at a 5 year olds birthday party u are heartless and something should be done before he shoots an incent person shame on the police department for standing next to this officer and supporting him this just discussed me

    1. I agreed with this comment. The cop was totally wrong and heartless. He abused his power to kill the innocent dog. The family should find a lawyer for justice.

      “The court finds that the government’s failure to secure the border has exacerbated illegal immigration into this country. Further, the record supports the finding that this lack of enforcement, combined with the country’s high rate of illegal immigration, significantly drains the states’ resources.”

      – Andrew Hanen (Houston, Texas U.S. District Judge, quoted Feb 16, 2015; temporarily blocking Obama’s illegal executive actions on immigration, giving a coalition of 26 states time to pursue a lawsuit aiming to permanently stop the orders.)

      “A 2012 House report reviewed the effectiveness of the Secure Communities program, a project initially launched by the Bush administration to build databases that identify illegal aliens who qualify for deportation. The data covered arrests from October 2008 through July 2011. The report analyzed data on 159,286 legal and illegal immigrants arrested by state or local police, including 7,283 illegal aliens who could have been deported but who were not taken into custody by ICE despite being identified as living in the country unlawfully.

      The data shows that along with drunken-driving charges, the released illegals went on to commit 16,226 new crimes, including 19 murders, 142 sex offenses, 1,420 drug crimes, 682 cases of burglary or theft and 48 firearms charges.”

      “Families who enter our country the right way and play by the rules watch others flout the rules.

      “The Border Patrol has changed tremendously in the last 10 to 20 years. It has more than doubled in size and has brought in a lot of new recruits from all over country. That has increased the diversity of the agency.

Mandatory deportation gets majority support in all age groups except 18-24, every income group, among both women and men, at every level of educational achievement, and in rural, urban and suburban regions. More interesting still is the fact that 64% of independents and 55% of moderates support deportation. Even among Hispanics, the poll found 40% backed mandatory deportation…”

      “After years of hard work and countless meetings, we have reached a tipping point and can no longer continue working on a broad approach to immigration. We want to be clear. The problem is politics. Instead of doing what’s right for America, President Obama time and again has unilaterally disregarded the U.S. Constitution, the letter of the law and bypassed the Congress – the body most representative of the people – in order to advance his political agenda. We will not tolerate it. Laws passed by Congress are not merely suggestions, regardless of the current atmosphere in Washington. Laws are to be respected and followed by all – particularly by the Commander-in-Chief.

      If past actions are the best indicators of future behavior; we know that any measure depending on the president’s enforcement will not be faithfully executed. It would be gravely irresponsible to further empower this administration by granting them additional authority or discretion with a new immigration system. The bottom line is – the American people do not trust the President to enforce laws, and we don’t either.”

See, already the Democrats have made people believe that Republicans want to get rid of all the immigrants, when all anybody’s interested in here is preserving America and American culture and assimilation and legal immigration. What everybody’s up in arms about is no end in sight to open borders and illegal immigration, but the Democrats have convinced people that the Republicans want to find every immigrant there is and send ’em home. Now Debbie ‘Blabbermouth’ Schultz wants to throw women in the mix, and Dana Bash just sits there and nods?”

      “I think the American people don’t understand the full breadth of this problem. We have a president who has appointed a commissioner of Customs and Border Protection who is more political than ever, and they have carved out our immigration laws, by policy, where Border Patrol agents are basically letting everyone we catch out the door. So, that’s not border security. We need a president who understands the problem, who is going to put the right political appointees in there, and who is going to let Border Patrol agents go out and enforce the law.

      That’s what’s going to make us safer. We are up against the most violent criminals in the Western Hemisphere, in the Mexican cartels. Gang members are coming across that border from MS-13, from every gang imaginable. They are trying to get across that border.”

      “Two weeks ago today, I had the unfortunate distinction of burying one of my deputies. His name was Danny Oliver and he was shot a single time in the head during a casual encounter with a suspect. Only you [Obama] are singularly responsible for the hands-off policy that exists within Homeland Security and its subsidiaries, including the Customs and Border Protection. They don’t need a raise to improve morale and organization, they need to be allowed to do their jobs and carry out their mission to keep America safe.

      The problem I have is I can’t tell which ones are evil and which ones are good. And neither can you. By their very definition they are undocumented, untracked, untraced and unaccounted for. It is squarely the policy makers in Washington’s failure, including your own that has left us in this crisis. Deferred action, or amnesty, is deferring this crisis. It is not reform. It is simply giving up and it does nothing to make America and the undocumented population safer.”

      “In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American… There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

      – Theodore Roosevelt (quoted in 1907)

      “The first consideration in immigration is the welfare of the receiving nation. In a new government based on principles unfamiliar to the rest of the world and resting on the sentiments of the people themselves, the influx of a large number of new immigrants unaccustomed to the government of a free society could be detrimental to that society. Immigration, therefore, must be approached carefully and cautiously.”

      “Over the years immigration activists successfully deconstructed the complex issue of illegal immigration into a race and class morality tale of privileged whites picking on poor brown people. The operative buzzwords were ‘racism,’ ‘nativism,’ and ‘xenophobia.’ That theme is now mostly bankrupt given that every great lie eventually falls from its own weight. It was rarely the host, but more often the activists on behalf of the guests, who framed illegal immigration in racial terms. Activists foolishly fabricated the controversy as ‘we noble Latinos’ against ‘you prejudiced non-Latinos.’ They forgot apparently two obvious truths: one, thirty percent of Americans are not so-called white; and, two, most people resent ethnic chauvinism. Is an unemployed African-American sympathetic to the argument that someone has a birthright to illegally cross into the United States and find instant employment?

      …Sometime in the last five years, the public woke up and grasped that Latino elite activists were not so much interested in illegal immigration per se, but only to the degree that the issue affected other Latinos. Were 3,000 Chinese illegally entering California per day by ship on the Northern California coast, Latino activists and politicians would probably be the first to call for enforcement of federal immigration law.”

      – Victor David Hanson (columnist for; from an article posted on August 30, 2015)

      “In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law. Russia does not need minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation.

      The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of most minorities. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the national interest first, observing that the minorities are not Russians.”

      – Vladimir Putin (in a February 4th, 2013 speech to the Russian Parliament)

  2. So I’m pro police but when poor judgment is used and stories change I call BS on it all!
    I have been around law enforcement a long time and I have had my own dog drawn on for defending my home but he was called off by his family.
    Now if this dog tried to attack the officer through a fence officer Franklin should have just backed away and called animal control or honked and alerted the family to call the dog off.
    The use of his firearm could have put the dog out of misery there was absolutely NO reason to pull a high powered firearm that can have a 15 mile range to do it especially in front of children.
    As for a reply about he must not have kids yes he has a daughter she lives in Florida with her mother and that folks is another story of bad judgment on this officers part!
    Shame on you Ken Moore for standing by the use of a high powered rifle in city limits to unthinize an animal it wasn’t a bear or a wild hog he was a family pet
    Josh Franklin shame on you as well for your actions

    1. A cop civil servant would have directed the family to take kids inside and had dad witness. Then had a police victim counselor work with these kids.
      That little boy will have problems with police his while life and needs to understand that not all cops are idiots.

    1. Don’t bet on it. The man in Fla shot while laying on his back with his hands up was shot with a AR15

    2. Since the Government started giving police weapons and cash, many now do have ar-15s, and other military style equipment. Where it all is kept is left to the department’s’ discretion.

  3. Unreal, killing a dog in a fenced yard, when the officer is on the outside of the fence. Now there are a whole lot more children and adults that will never trust the police again.

  4. Nice way to incite more hatred against police Live With Dogs. Im not condoning this officer’s actions but to post a story like this written the way it is will do nothing but instill hatred in cops.

    1. Yeah shoot a human being over a dog; that makes tremendous sense. You and the rest of these people who love dogs more than people should go away. You’re inciting more hatred against officers for no reason. Sure if this story is true then that officer is wrong but to say he needs to die too? GTFO…

  5. Maybe it’s time this town got a new police chief and a smarter group of cops. This man is clearly too stupid to carry a firearm.

  6. This police officer needs to lose his job! He didn’t need to shoot an innocent animal who was inside his own yard! A dog is going to defend his family so he was probably barking at the officer. There was no reason for the officer to shoot him, this bad cop will shoot a person in the near future!

  7. I call bullshit on this story. Too many of your pieces point to a different story than the one you are giving. First of all, the cops have been to the house on more than one occasion. The same officer on more than one occasion. An AR15 was used….you know this how? Are you just throwing that weapon out because so many dumbasses already have a hate for it without knowing anything about it? If you have the fence wired up and tied up that tells me the dog has issues with breaking out usually where the fence is tied closed. The dog doesn’t need his whole body outside the fence to bite someone, just his head which you say is possible in your rant. And finally, if the department already looked into it and found no fault with the officers discharge of his weapon then I have to side with their findings.

    1. Unfortunately William, this story is true! Don’t feel comforted that things were “looked into” either.
      I said more but decided to delete it for my own safety.


  9. Apparently his superiors and fellow cops approve of his actions. Disgusting and with the problems between police and the public this piece of sh..t has a smile on his face and to think his wife and kids gather around him every night and say “Daddy, you are the greatest”. I want to puke.

  10. cops wonder why people are not standing behind them and no longer give them the respect they think they deserve. Well I am from a cop family an the complainers should read this article and weep.

  11. Something has to be done about these cops using such bad judgement not only here but everywhere, he could have easily waited ouside and the people inside would have heard the dog barking, then they could have got their dog and talked to the officer. Officer is a frigging idiot period, so happy to fire a weapon. Attacked through a fence? What a frigging idoit, idiot, idiot, I would hate to live in that town, so sorry for the boy and his family, there needs to be gun control on these officers. RIP Opie….

  12. The writer, along with many of those commenting, seems to be jumping to some conclusions without knowing all the facts. Most of this article is speculation. She doesn’t know what happened; neither do any of the readers. The whole incident may very well have been just as bad as the author suggests, but she doesn’t prove that, and none of the readers can know for sure based such sketchy and incomplete information. So before people start calling this police officer a “pig,” demanding his badge, or even inciting others to retaliate against all police officers, they need to slow down and consider the implications of that kind of knee-jerk reaction. There is no question that sometimes police officers make mistakes. But the vast majority of them are just trying to do their jobs. But as a society, we’re making it so tough on them that there’s a lot of incentive for cops to start leaving the force. Their lives are at greater risk, they are being scrutinized and questioned at every turn, and they aren’t even very well compensated for such a demanding job. And when individual cops do great things, which happens every day and far more often than the incidents that make the news, we pay no attention. As imperfect as they may be, we will be a lot worse off without these officers doing their jobs. The way our society is responding to and treating law enforcement, it’s not implausible that we might start losing some of the benefits of a well established rule of law in our country.

  13. Murderer with a badge—the first sign of a psychopath is killing defenseless animals. So there is hope that this psychopath COP will die soon either in a shoot out or in prison where he belongs.

  14. Ok. Enough is enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Media has to be searching for these types of stories because it sells. You Don’t see them posting the Stories of the Thousands of good things that our Police men and Women do every day !!!!!!! No that doesn’t sell!!!!!!!!!!! But they will Print these types of stories in a heart beat even though they don’t know both sides. I know every Police Officer in the country is not perfect and that they make mistakes. But by all means lets keep stoking the Fire and get more hate going toward the Police by all means so unstable people can go out and Kill officers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you media Brothers and Sisters!!!!!!

  15. Here’s a prime example of a coward, not a real cop! and all those cop friends of his backing him are cowards! If they’re not killing people, white, black or any other color, they’ll come kill your family pet. While little children watch. This is not law enforcement, it’s a crime. If anyone else did it without a badge on, we’d be in jail. Cop? FREE PASS!

    1. You’re absolutely right. God created the people. . . and then he got angry and created the US police. . . then he got furious and he created US TSA. . . wonder what will happen if he really gets upset. . .

  16. So, the cops a murderer when he shoots a dog but when they shoot African Americans, a HUMAN BEING, they’re heroes. These dogs have a history of violence just like African Americans so, it was a justified shoot. RIGHT?

  17. 99 percent of cops are corrupt and love to kill. Wether human or animal they get off on killing! And the thought that they’ll most likely not even get changed with Any crime.

  18. Are there any normal, decent cops left, having a heart? I don’t think so. 90% is trigger-happy, racist, anti-anybody that is not wearing their fascist uniform. Every dog has his day! Today it was this poor dog, but the dog who shot the poor animal has one bearing his name too. . .

  19. The funny thing about this story is they feel the need to say “AR-15”, as if that has any relevance at all. Would it even be plastered all over Yahoo if it was a standard rifle (which is an AR15 is really), or a handgun, or a pellet gun even.. that killed the dog? No. It’s just another media story trying to drive up some sort of weird issue with guns that look menacing but are the same as every other gun.

  20. he intended to shoot the the man he was looking for but knew he didnt live there so he shot the dog instead. how macho he must feel, now he has earned his badge to belong to the gang in blue.

  21. The media will look for anything to boost their sales. I have dogs and love them but this story is so incomplete. They make it look like the cop decided to go shoot the dog because its the kids birthday. Give me a break this story was cooked.

  22. I stand by the cop, they protect our lives. Come on the dog attacked or he felt threatened by it so protected himself. People are making animals equal to humans which means they letting themselves to degrade or lower their standard to the animal, which is sickening. Humans are above animals. They are animals you never know what the beast thinks or will do. Could you guarantee that the dog would not have attacked anyone outside the family after watching recent news in TV or yahoo site that the family dog attacked & killed their infant and the alligator at Disney attacked & killed four year old. If you love your dog keep it inside so that people walking by do not feel threatened. I walk in the park and see people do not leash their dog or have long leash, several times I see the dogs come close by, keep them closer to yourself right next to you. If you love your dog do not expect me to love it.

  24. This Police Officer should lose his Job just like in Floradia Cop kill a Pit bull there they should both lose there Job & there Children taken from them. 😣😣😣😣😣😢😢😢😢this has too stop it has too stop.
