Teen punks murder Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell's dog - The Unofficial Opie and Anthony Message Board - Wackbag.comIt makes me sick that these punks would do this to ANYBODY's pet! But, it bothers me even more that this young hero should have to experience this kind of garbage. I can't even say what I'm thinking right now.Marcus Luttrell is a Navy Seal, and winner of the Navy Cross. He is also the author of Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10.
He called into Glenn Beck recently to report on the killing of his dog by some teen punks who were out shooting dogs for the fun of it.
One caller called to ask if Beck had an update.
GLENN: Yes, I do. Yes, I do. Marcus Luttrell is the lone survivor. He was part of the SEAL team. It was the biggest battle any SEAL in SEAL history. He was the only survivor. He lost his whole team. He was then taken by Al Qaeda and the Taliban and he was tortured beyond your wildest imagination and there they held him for a while. He's been sick. He still hasn't recovered from all of the things that they did to him and so he just has he's always in for his back and surgery and everything else.
On Thursday I believe it was, Wednesday or Thursday about 1:00 a.m., Marcus is a guy who doesn't sleep anymore at night. He sleeps during the daytime. And about 1:00 he happened to be awake and he heard a gunshot. He lives on a ranch with his mother in Texas. He grabs his gun and he goes outside. There he sees, I believe it was four. It may be three but I believe it was four young men 18 to 24 years old, all of them, where they had just shot his dog. Marcus' dog is named Dasy. Each letter represents D A S Y represents one of the fallen members of his team. It was given to him in recovery to help him through the recovery process. This dog means everything to Marcus. Marcus had his gun and he took it out and he put it right between the eyes of one of the guys. He was standing away from them, pointed right between the eyes. Now, here's a SEAL team member who is wildly, he's just, he is having trouble, man. He is still recovering from his injuries. He had just gotten out of surgery. He's standing there with a gun between the guy's eyes. He doesn't fire. All four and he's just saying, "You killed my dog." They executed his dog. "You killed my dog. Why would you do that?" They run. They get into his car. Marcus gets into his truck, chases them over four counties, finally runs them into a ditch. He calls the Rangers. The Texas Rangers arrive and these guys, when the Texas Rangers are taking these guys away, Marcus has held them there by a gun. As the Rangers are taking these guys away, they're threatening Marcus' life and saying, "When we get out, we're coming for you next. First it was your dog. It's going to be you next. You don't know who you're messin' with." That's when Marcus kind of snapped just a little bit and said to the Ranger, "Excuse me, ranger, do you know who I am?" He said, "Yes, sir, Mr. Luttrell, I do." He said, "You might want to explain to these punks because I could have killed them 600 different ways and if I wanted to kill you guys after what you would have done what you just did to my dog, I would have pulled you down into my basement and I would have tortured you for days and you wouldn't have died until you begged me for death. So before you start saying you're going to come after me, you better learn who you've just whose dog you just killed."
They get into jail. These four punks have been killing dogs in Marcus' county now for a month, for joys, joy rides and kicks. Tonight Marcus is going to be on television and he's going to tell the story, and I'm showing the pictures of these dirtbags. And I want you to call PETA, I want you to call every activist you know. I want you to hear the story of a hero whose dog was executed. In all of the times that everybody is saying, oh, guns gotta be taken off the streets, you gun nuts. Here's a responsible gun owner that with everything he's gone through, everything that that dog means, these dirtbags come and kill his dog. He could have killed them all. He probably would have enjoyed it, justifiably so and he didn't because he's an American hero. Keep him in your prayers.

Really sad. I don't even know what to say anymore about this country we are living in.
There are just no words.

Looks like the country is going to hell in a handbag. Probably a good thing that the Ranger that arrived at the scene wasn't one of the people on this forum. Probably would have looked for the gun they used and if found would have declared that it was a defensive shooting - shame they all died.
Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.
I really believe it's time we quit treating criminals like wayward kids and realise there is no rehabilitation and put these punks down like rabid dogs

I vote we tar and feather them, set them loose in a field, and then go for a duck hunt
Disgusting, those punks are lucky to be alive. Not that they deserve to be, why give them a chance to kill a human next time. Those kids are sick, I'd like to give them a 230 grain pill for their illness.
I hope these kids get shacked up with "Bubba." A little dose of what the world can really be like.
I hope the Judge makes them butt boys for a long time...should be interesting the sentencing...Vick got years for his cruelty...
That is absolutely despicable thing to do to anyone's dog. I've read his book, and that man has my utmost respect. I am honestly disgusted right now.

Pretty sickening. I can't imagine having the courage to even speak of without the utmost respect for this American hero, much less doing something to cause him distress. I don't know if they knew who's dog they were harming (among the many they evidently killed) but if they did and just didn't care, well, we are indeed aboard the hand basket to hell.
What Would Gumby Do?
These scumbags deserve NO MERCY...they won't get a lot of years, but hopefully they'll learn to 'bark' for Bubba...
They messed with the wrong dude...

I heard this on XM radio this morning, absolutely disgusting!
I have read Marus's book "Lone Survivor" and to think these punks shot his dog makes me sick. After what he's been through it wouldn't surprised me if he have blown the scum away.
