CNN tags along on dogfighting raid in Georgia

Nearly 100 dogs, mostly pit bulls, were seized in a raid of a house in East Dublin, Georgia, whose owner is suspected of raising dogs for dogfighting.

The Sheriff’s Office in Laurens County, based on an investigation triggered by information received on a telephone tip line, executed a search warrant at the property — and CNN was there to watch it unfold.

Private investigators with Norred and Associates Inc. worked alongside sheriff’s deputies and volunteers from the Dublin-Laurens County Humane Society. Greg Norred has been donating his firm’s time and expertise and his own money to rescuing dogs for the past two years, helping to save almost 300 dogs in at least 16 raids.

And I’m sure it’s no coincidence that the owner of these dogs has had two previous arrests for drugs and gun violations.
If you do a Google search on “Rollin Loyd” you can see a cached article about this man: in 2008, more than $55,000 in cash, 35 firearms & 2 lbs marijuana was seized from his home. He was also arrested and charged in a 2004 drug find worth over $50,000.

of course days ago they said he was just a breeder and not raising them for fighting but that doesn’t make such good headlines right?

and why are they getting warrants on anonymous tips third hand anyway? what about due process????

It should be illegal for news services to accompany the police on “raids” “Mr.” Norrad has not “rescued” dogs.. he has caused hundreds of dogs to be killed.. most “fighting dogs” are killed right away after seizure…

Wow Alice in LALA land. guess what – all the dogs ARE still alive – now 15 days after the seizure…some ONLY BECAUSE they were rescued. What the news media couldn’t show – because they weren’t allowed on the property was the on-site vet exams-some of which showed open wounds, consistent with fighting – THAT’s how they can get some dog fighting charges. Sure, most were probably bred to be sold to fighters, which in Georgia is also a felony violation. So is the conditions these dogs were kept in – felony animal cruelty and neglect can be just as bad – and prosecutable as fighting.
