Carl Kelley: This lowlife kicked a dog.
A 47-year-old St. Louis man is facing criminal charges after police say he brutally kicked a police dog.

Carl Kelley had been ordered out of his home in north St. Louis by police, who hoped to question him in connection with a burglary, according to a probable cause statement filed by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce. When Kelley failed to comply, the officer sent in his K9 associate, a police dog named Beil.

But when the officer found Kelley, he was kicking and hitting Beil. The circuit attorney's office has since charged Kelley with assault on a police animal, as well as one count of unlawful use of drug paraphernalia after officers found a "scorched" metal cylinder.

Crack pipe? Check. Ill treatment of a dog who's just doing the job he was trained to do? Check. Yep, we'd say that Carl Kelley sounds like your basic lowlife to us...

UPDATE: We hear from a police spokeswoman that K9 Officer Beil is A-OK.

If the cops wanted to get Kelly to come out of the house all peaceful, they should have lured him out with watermelon and pig snoots. Then the poor dog wouldn't have been hurt.

I think most people would kick a dog if it tried to bite them. Perhaps Kelly was only protecting himself and not really being cruel to an animal. I would kick the shit out of any dog if it attacked me and would kill it if I had a chance. So this time, I'm siding with the bad guy. Woof Woof!

Would you be happier if I said he should have been lured out with chitterlings and a crack pipe? Or food stamps and a pack of Blunts? You black folks are so thin skinned.

Maybe he's was fighting the dog for the pig snoots?

Enough with the race based comments.  The police chould have gotten him out of the house with a 40 of malt liquor and a pack of Newport or Cool menthol cigarettes.
