I have heard it all not,, Of course the officer would say something like about the sun or the moon was in my eyes,,,,,I say he should have his badge taken. See how he likes being without a job right now.... Especially not having much of a poster boy background and all.
Thanks Cher

The response I got by email.....I appreciate your email and your concern. As the Cass County Prosecutor, I
am not an investigative agency. Unless and until one of the law enforcement
agencies sends me a report with a named suspect, I have no information to
review. In this instance, I have read the articles in the paper but have
not received anything from an investigative agency. I have no authority to
tell Raymore Police Department what to do. They are a separate entity from
the Prosecutor's Office. However, their higher authority is your Mayor and
your City Council persons. You can request from your Mayor and City Council
that an investigation be done by an outside agency. Once that agency has
done the investigation, they can then submit the reports to my office for
review. I will review whatever is presented to my office. Again, at this
time, I have had nothing presented to me in order to review this matter.

If you have any questions further questions, feel free to call my office @

Teresa Hensley
Cass County Prosecuting Attorney

Dear Honorable Teresa Hensley:

I have a question. I don't know the laws in Raymore, MO-but is it illegal for police officers to LIE in a police report? Please observe these FACTS, and please see the news report (nbc action news link and PLEASE watch the video on the upper right corner of this link.)

In Raymore, MO, three officer put a feeble elderly frail 6 pound, toothless, declawed, arthritic cat in a box, took the cat in a field, then that the Police man shot in the head twice, and told the family where to get their mangled cat. Sound unreal? It's true--but look what he wrote in the police report!

Date: September 13, 2009

The police officers had written these "facts" in the police report which happens to be a LEGAL DOCUMENT:

POLICE REPORT: "The cat appeared to be wild".

Truth: The cat was 19 years old, feeble, arthritic. I don't see how a 19 year old arthritic feeble cat can appear "wild" other than hobbling around.

POLICE REPORT: "The cat also appeared to be sick".

Truth: Tobey was 19 years old cat and was remarkably elderly-like a 100+ year old grandma. And if the cat were sick and suspected rabies like law enforcement alleged, why did the cops contain the cat, drove to a field, then shot the cat in the head TWICE with enormous cold cruelty--and dispose of it in the trash rather than rule out rabies with quarantine as prescribed by health department standards.

POLICE REPORT: "It had all four legs out with claws ON ALL FOUR FEET extended."

Truth: Tobey was DECLAWED.

POLICE REPORT: "The cat was VERY LARGE and would not fit all the way into the bag."

Truth: Tobey only weighed 6 pounds typical of feeble old elderly cats. Trust me a six pound cat is quite thin and feeble-and SMALL.

I though police reports were supposed to be truthful-and in my opinion this seriously casts down on the Police Department's credibility with its capacity to tell the truth in their reports!! What people do to animals they LIKEWISE will do to people, perhaps based on a prejudice. Isn't this some kind of legal and ethics violation, or are police officers exempt from being truthful on police reports. ENQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW!! In my opinion this capacity to lie on police reports is an infringement of Judicial process-just in my opinion because I know nothing about law. But I would be afraid to have police officers in my town if I knew they could LIE in police reports. That would frighten me!!

I'm just curious because I find it odd that lying on a police report isn't even being mentioned like it's not important.

(1) The cat that scratched the little girl may not have been Tobey;
(2) If it was Tobey (which was declawed), Tobey needed to be quarantined to rule out rabies per health standards;
(3) If the girl finds out (and she probably will) that a cat was shot in the head twice due to this incident, she is going to blame herself because kids DO put blame on themselves-who knows what kind of psychological damage this could cause.

Thank you for your time and reading.


How's that for a reply :-)

I got an email from a State law maker regarding this. He did say he recieved several emails regarding this cat. However, I wrote back and I said what about the untrue statements the cop made in his police report. Isn't that illegal? I ALSO ASKED HIM TO PROPOSE STRICTER (FELONY) LAWS AGAINST ANIMAL CRUELTY

"Chris Molendorp"

Thanks for your email. Needless to say, I have received several about this issue.

Animal cruelty is illegal and many laws are on the books concerning this. City or County Prosecutors could pursue charges as could the Office of Attorney General. Truthfully, I have no power to "punish" the Raymore Police Department or an individual officer.

As a citizen, you can complain to the Police Chief, Mayor or City Council. But as a State Representative, I have no jurisdiction over City government. Laws already exist to address these issues. You should send your concerns to the City Prosecutor or the County Prosecutor.

Thank you,

Chris Molendorp
