Attleboro, MA — As the Free Thought Project reported last year, 2018 was the year of the snitches as neighbors turned in fellow neighbors to authorities for selling water, lemonade, or for simply being black at your own apartment complex pool. This see something say something society is the wet dream of the authoritarian. In spite of the ridicule and shaming these people receive online for calling the police for no reason, as the following case of a woman calling 911 because a dog humped her dog illustrates, they keep doing it.
Last year, Peter Boghossian and his colleagues launched a full on exposé on the fraudulent ‘science’ taking over American universities by publishing a series of hoax studies in peer reviewed journals. One of these fake studies actually won an award after it was published in a feminist geography journal, Gender, Place and Culture. The journal accepted and published the paper, which claimed to have tallied the rate at which people intervened in more than a thousand dog-on-dog sexual assaults.
The fake study was titled Human reactions to rape culture and queer performativity at urban dog parks in Portland, Oregon. It contained hilarious and outlandish claims like the following:
“Dog parks are microcosms where hegemonic masculinist norms governing queering behavior and compulsory heterosexuality can be observed in a cross-species environment. They are thusly oppressive spaces that lock both humans and animals into hegemonic patterns of gender conformity that effectively resist bids for emancipatory change.”
These claims were deliberately ridiculous and outlandish as the study set out to expose this mindset within universities. Surely, no one thinks that dogs humping each other is tied to some inherently dogmatic patriarchal tyranny of their owners, right? Well, as the following case illustrates, some people actually do believe this.
Franklin Baxley was walking his dog last week in Attleboro Dog Park, like he’s done countless times before. And, just like all dogs do, his dog mounted or attempted to “hump” another dog in the park.
It is a common—yet annoying—fact that dogs hump other dogs. And this behavior certainly does not arise to criminal behavior. But this 2019 version of “Barbecue Becky” clearly did not get the memo on this.
“Your dog keeps humping my dog and assaults him,” a woman on a phone with police told Baxley last month.
“My dog’s assaulting your dog, do you listen to yourself?” Baxley answered, adding that after he separated the dogs, the woman asked him to leave the park before accusing him of “verbally assaulting” her.
While Baxley protested the woman’s reaction, another woman intervened and accused Baxley of breaking the rules.
“I know the rules,” Baxley said. “I’ve seen every single dog hump another dog here.”
“You heard of Barbecue Becky cause this is the newest one, right here,” Baxley added. “I bet if I was white you wouldn’t have called the cops.”
When the officer showed up, according to Baxley, he immediately treated the woman as the victim and Baxley as the criminal. He even threatened to cite Baxley because his car was running—something he did not know was illegal.
“She told me to leave the park because my dog assaulted the dog by humping him. That’s where we’re at, sir,” Baxley said to the cop.
Baxley attempted to explain to the officer that the alleged “verbal assault” was him trying to explain to the lady that his dog was just being a dog.
To be clear, Baxley did not continue to allow his dog to hump this woman’s dog. When it started, he stopped it. Yet it was still elevated to police action.
“I don’t know why he’s doing this. It’s really annoying,” the woman told the officer.
Apparently, this woman thought that being “annoyed” should lead to armed men with guns solving her problems for her.
“Oh, I’m used to it though,” the officer responded, seemingly backing up the notion of annoyed people relying on him to solve their problems.
Baxley explained that after the officer “comforted” the woman, he then tried to issue him a citation for his running car.
Sadly, Baxley then decided it was best for him to leave because attempting to tell his side of the story was a futile task and he didn’t want to get a ticket “or worse,” he said.
Although Baxley received no sympathy from the cop, luckily, the majority of America tends to side with him. From Barbecue Becky to this year’s ‘Dog Park Debbie’, those who continue to call in armed agents of the state to enforce their opinion on others are feeling the accountability wrath of the internet.
Woman calls cop on man because his dog was humping her dog at dog park 🤦🏾♂️ 🐕
