Bulgaria Should Prosecute Media Who Filmed Borko Abuse

Dear Mr. Penkov, the Smolyan Public Prosecutor's Office, and Alegro Capital,

See video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCnRYYxzaro

I am outraged that an innocent and disabled animal was abused and nothing has been done to prosecute the perpetrators of this crime.

This mob trespassed on Dr. Litov's property, abused his dog and videotaped the abuse!  All the evidence you need is on film.  You have faces of a good percentage of the mob who came to threaten Dr. Litov and his family.  You also have a clear view of the man who attacked Dr. Litov's dog, Borko.  If you have a dog overpopulation problem, then you need to start spaying & neutering your dogs.

Is condoned violence how you solve your problems? Borko could not even run away or defend himself!  All of the people in the mob are criminals and cowards.  They need to be prosecuted and pay for their crimes.  I ask you to uphold your animal protection laws and Dr. Litov's rights.  The police and prosecutors need to do their jobs and obey the law instead of looking the other way.

I also ask that the media who came with the mob be prosecuted.  They were complicit in the criminal act and deserve to be held responsible for their part in this crime.  Alegro Capital, you need to take a look at the behavior of your TV7 reporters.  This was not reporting.  Your employees went to Dr. Litov's house with the mob and knew what was going to happen.  Then they stood by while it happened.  They need to be fired from their positions and arrested.

Violent and criminal behavior needs to be punished no matter how or where it happens.
Turning a blind eye to known illegal activity indicates a corrupt government.
Is this kind of behavior you want the world to associate with Bulgaria?
