    Last night around midnight i was hit by a cab at Allston and Comm. Ave. The fucker ran a red light and I was thrown up onto th windsheild and thoroughly fuck his shit up but i broke my collar bone. I was wondering if anybody had any recommendations about who i should contact for representation. If anyone has had first hand experience with the lawyer that would be awesome. Thanks people.

    get lawyer asap
    i assume you have all the cabbies information?

    there is a popular bike lawyer that advertises in the phoenix or dig, i forget which, but he has a pretty big noticeable ad.

    Hope you feel better doood!

    Adam's got the idea. Good luck! Keep us updated. I'm always down with hearing about cabbie being brought to justice. At least go after the company for the big $$$$$$$$$$I prefer 49x16

    MSPCA law enforcement. They are a private law enforcement division and will act on all calls apart from the BPD.

    the ARL also has their own division but i believe they will just take the case to the BPD

    My concern is that reporting a man who beats his dog may end up meaning that the dog is put down. She has violent tendencies toward other dogs, which is understandable considering the treatment she's received, but the mspca probably won't have the resources to rehabilitate her?

    MSPCA + dog rescue?

    If nothing else, check the ASPCA articles on reporting animal cruelty, which might give you some insight on how to proceed.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    Do you know Amy Brown? She's been doing a lot of work with pit rescue lately. Id say try and find an independent kennel or something if possible. If its bad though, I'd really call the MSPCA, since they rant connected to the PD they'd be much more willing to work with cases like that i bet. They probably see it all the time. Even if you just called and asked what the deal was in those cases.'Cause i always say i love you when i mean turn out the lights.

    Dora talked to Amy, but she said that the chance of euthanasia is high if the dog is violent

    Mspca's enforcement page says that their main focus is educating pet owners rather than taking animals away

    Hey Dora and Alex,
    I talked to the guys at ARL last night and unfortunately they couldn't give me a whole lot of info since i didn't know the whole deal with the situation. they highly recommend you call them or the MSPCA authorities. They said most programs are at least willing to work with a dog taken out of an abusive situation, they will do a behavioral evaluation, especially is there is any case to be made for the dog. I really suggest even if you don't call the authorities, just call the ARL or MSPCA and talk with them about options.
    Wish I could have gotten more info, i hope that helps though!'Cause i always say i love you when i mean turn out the lights.

    This will prolly be a very controversial post, but here goes...

    It might be better for the dog to be "put to sleep" (reporting) than to be tortured by some turbo-clown for the rest of it's life (not reporting).

    Also, as to vigilantes stuff, I would never kidnap a dog, but I might very well treat an owner the way he treats his pets.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    Make 100% certain that there is abuse. I have a big dog and we play rough. Big dogs love to play rough. We shove eachother around. I don't punch him, but I will give him a light kick in the butt sometimes. Some people can lose sense of reason when they perceive abuse and think they are rescuing a dog. I don't know the details here, just make sure you take a step back and ask yourself whether you are 100% sure there is abuse before you ruin both the owner and the dog's lives.A few spokes shy of a wheel.

    rock dathe - I used to work with some small time (huge heart) rescuers in the camb/boston area. They're the people who rescue the animals that animal control/mspca would put to sleep or not bother with. A dog is a huge responsibility, but they have a lot of connections. I'll can send out feelers if you want a me to contact them.

    I assume that the only course of action that we would lawfully be able to take, with the highest chance of saving the dog, is finding someone licensed or working with animals that is willing to take the dog. They'll need to know dog type/size, if possible. Then we call for an arrest, and when we do, tell them the place accepting the dog. I'm not 100% on this method, but if you really think this dog needs to be saved and are willing to see this through, I can run it by my peeps, but we need the witnesses.
