It’s not very often that people are appreciative of burglars, but we certainly are today!  Four miscreants walking along a Chicago street broke into an SUV and stole a laptop.  They didn’t realize it, but a German shepherd was slowly roasting alive in the back.  His owner didn’t come out of a pub for another 40 minutes, but because of these filchers, the dog is alive and well.

Security cameras mounted outside the Irish Nobleman Pub in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood show four young men passing by a parked vehicle twice, blatantly casing it for valuables left unattended.  One of them throws a rock and boosts a laptop from inside, and then all four abscond with their loot.

“If the window wasn’t broken the dog would probably be dead,” Declan Morgan, owner of the Irish Nobleman Pub, told WGN.  “The dog was in the backseat. They didn’t realize the dog was in there. The windows were tinted in the back.”

The owner returned to his vehicle 40 minutes after the break-in.  Morgan said footage shows that the dog was trapped inside for an hour.  The owner claims he parked in the shade, and had the air conditioning running before turning the SUV off, but anyone with common sense and a knowledge of basic science understands that the sun’s position moves continuously, and that as soon as AC is shut off a vehicle quickly heats right back up.

Police have not commented on the matter, because it is very possible the owner did not report the incident so as not to implicate himself in a clear case of animal neglect.  Hopefully he has learned his lesson (karma?), and in the future will not endanger his dog’s life for the sake of a pint.

  1. Put the owner in the hot car for an hour with the windows up. The guy will do this to his dog again. Poor dog…

    • Excellent idea! I was waiting in a car for someone, it turned out to be more than 45 minutes on a very warm day. Since it was my friends car, I didn’t have the keys to roll down the window. I had propped the door open, but it didn’t matter, It was incredibly hot and I was sweating so bad! I finally just had to get out of the car, I’m glad this dog is ok.

  2. Who are the thieves? Four young Black men! Black Criminal Matters! Bring them to justice too!

    • Because white people do not steal or commit crimes? Idiots like this OP show how ignorant people are. There are countless stories of white parents torturing their children, raping little kids, and more heinous crimes.

  3. Ah screw “Mans best friend”(DOGS!), more like cousins to some- check the DNA of any non-african/negro and you’ll see why you smell,walk on all fours,get lice, and are born with tails like the grafted dog/neanderthal you are.

  4. The moron should not be able to keep the dog. He’ll do it again because he doesn’t give a crap about the dog, all he cares about is rotting his liver with alcohol. I hope that process speeds up, because he doesn’t deserve to live!!

  5. I was expecting more of these set ups of dogs being locked in cars. The so called “police”, who along with “judges”, “elected officials”, RMV/DMV, sheriffs, all alphabet agencies such as IRS (so called), CIA, etc. are the thieves of the people. They use REVENUE BEARING STATUATORY LAWS, which are FRAUD, never been passed into law for us, by claiming some interest in either non crimes or fake crimes with no passed statutes. These persons are third party debt collectors for the Federal Reserve, and they are desparate to get their buddy fakers, the legislatures, to pass more fake legislation to enable them to start ticketing people. This is now the newest act in their pulling the wool over the eyes of the people. Please go to the article on the internet: Bombshell, Rod Class Gets Fourth Ruling All Gov’t Offices Are Vacant, Gov’t Officials are Private Contractors”. The “police” have no more right to ticket you then I do, which is to say none. they are committing fraud and robbing us of our freedom. How many times have you heard of these ACTORS IN BLUE, killing dogs and even the children they were called to “protect”.
    Don’t fall for this act people. This is controlled by the central bank and is merely for the purposes of stealing from you and your foreign situs trust, for the central bank – all central banks are run by the Jesuits of Rome – master thieves and killers, read Vatican Assassins by Eric Jon Phelps. If you let them get away with their constant robberies, press gangings, personage, barratry, abductions, false witness, thefts, they will drive you into the ground in short order. WAKE UP PEOPLE, DO NOT ALLOW THESE THIRD PARTY DEBT COLLECTORS, GOVERNMENT IMPERSONATORS, to continue to rob, oppress and lord it over you. This one, with the escaping criminals, why, this is just more of an act. The criminals WORK WITH THE POLICE, so they are just helping their buddies. An ex Mafia man said “the government, the church and the Mafia are the same people?. WAKE UP PEOPLE, THEIR LITTLE REVENUE COLLECTING GAME IS EVIL AND MEANS DEATH AND PRISON FOR US.
