Sgt. Barry Antwine Arrested for Poisoning Dogs with Antifreeze
Antwine is scheduled to be in court June 11, and there are at least 6 dogs in his neighborhood that he is under suspicion of killing.
This is not the first time Antwine has been arrested either. In 2013, when he was a school resource officer, it came to light that he was arrested under the charges of second degree rape and molestation while he attended Wagoner High School in 1997.
An affidavit shows that a 14-year-old girl accused Antwine of touching her inappropriately while they were in class, to which Antwine admitted doing so.
Antwine then entered into an agreement of deferred prosecution with the State of Oklahoma that stated charges would not be filed if he met the conditions of the agreement for four years. Now 17 years later, he is a cop and still breaking the law.
This particular police department has a long history of abuse, specifically animal abuse as well.
Just this year The Free Thought Project reported that a police officer in the same district actually killed a dog and then later bragged about it, even after he tried to cover it up. The guilty police officer allegedly attempted to conspire with an animal control agent to make up lies about how the dog was hostile. The facts of the case were later uncovered because of his public bragging.
Dog killings have become commonplace among police. Stories of police officers murdering animals are seen in the news every day. The vast majority of these cases are avoidable, and in circumstances like those mentioned these officers actually seem to sadistically enjoy what they are doing.
