The Death of a Friend
"A Texas Department of Public Safety spokeswoman says Marcus Luttrell was involved in the high speed chase in the early morning of April 1 after finding his yellow Labrador shot outside his Huntsville home. Onalaska Police Department stopped the suspects. The Walker County Sheriff's Department investigated the death of Luttrell's dog, Daisy. They charged Michael John Edmonds II, 21, and Alfonzo Hernandez, 24, with cruelty to a non-livestock animal. The driver of the vehicle was cited for not having a license."Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell was a graduate of BUD/S Class 228. He is the only survivor of the fateful events of June 28, 2005 in Afghanistan. Luttrell and three teammates from SEAL Team 10 were assigned to a reconnaissance mission, operation RED WING, in the Hindu-Kush mountain region of Afghanistan. Their objective was to gather intelligence on Taliban movement in the area. Through a series of events, the team was compromised, discovered and outnumbered by over 200 Taliban fighters.
After a battle down the side of the mountain lasting hours, Luttrell's buddies were dead. Luttrell was the only survivor. In the rescue mission that followed, 16 Special Forces personnel, including 8 SEALs, died when their helicopter was shot down by Taliban fighters. It was the largest single day loss of life in the SEAL team history.
It is a sad day when two sorry son of a bitches go out at night, ride around in a pick-up truck and shoot a harmless dog in her own yard for fun. This was a rehabilitation dog given to Mr. Luttrell after his return from Afghanistan. She was named for the friends he lost. Danny, Axe, Southern Boy (Marcus) and Yankee.
One of these sorry assed dog killers is still on the run. His name is Michael Edmonds. If you have any information on Edmonds' whereabouts, please contact Sgt. Steven Jeter at the Huntsville Texas Ranger station at 936-435-0152.
UPDATE: Michael Edmonds has surrendered to authorities. He is out on bond. Contact the Walker County Prosecutor's Office to let them know how you feel about this random killing of dogs for kicks.
