The dog beating, drug dealing New Bedford cockfarmer was arrested today as first reported by the New Bedford Guide.
Miguel A. Martinez, 41, has been charged with animal cruelty in accordance with Massachusetts general laws Chapter 272, Section 77, after alleged cruelty to a dog in New Bedford. Martinez was charged after police responded to his residence, 472 Cottage Street, on Wednesday, October 9, in response to reports of cruelty to an animal. An adult female dog and three puppies were seized and transported to Tufts Veterinary Emergency Treatment & Specialties (VETS) in Walpole. According to Tufts, the adult female appears to be physically uninjured although radiology reports are pending, and the puppies also appear to be physically uninjured.
What a shame that it took a massive public shaming, a neighbor with an iPhone, and a private citizen who went full Tiananmen Square on this douchebag to finally bring him to justice. And to make matters worse for the NBPD they shamelessly put this bullshit in their press release.
New Bedford Police urge residents to contact 9-1-1 the event of any emergency, including animal cruelty as it is happening. While recording a video can certainly help provide valuable evidence to the police, calling 9-1-1 during a suspected crime as soon as possible is the best way to ensure police are able to respond and to ensure public safety.
Oh fuck off. Without the person filming it none of this happens. You tried your best NOT to do your job because it was too much work, and that was WITH video evidence. If this neighbor didn’t tape it and called 911 instead that dog would probably be dead by now. You ignored 911 calls for hours and only finally responded when the shitbag himself called the cops on blockade Betty, the hero of this story.
Don’t listen to the cops guys – always film everything. Always. Every person with a phone and access to the Internet is a virtual reporter in 2019. Don’t listen to the people who say, “why didn’t you stop him instead of filming?” The filmers do a greater public service than the keyboard quarterbacks could ever dream of doing. The only thing they consistently do wrong is film vertically. When I’m dictator it will be a federal crime not to record horizontally.
But wait it gets MUCH worse. We received a message today from a woman who has claims that Miguel Martinez has actually done worse things than beat a dog and sell heroin.
I would like to give u some more info on that monster. He also was arrested in 2000 in NYC for 2nd degree manslaughter on a 9 month old baby girl, but only did 10 years in jail. He beats all his girlfriends and is ordered not to be around children, but his dumb girlfriend Jennifer that he lives with has 3 children and knows of his prior convictions. He also has 2 children he cant be around and doesn’t see!
After being released from jail in 2010 he then was arrested in New Bedford for being fugitive of justice at 5 AM one day in June 2011. I only know this info because sadly to say I was 8 months pregnant by this scumbag when I found out about his ugly past.
It’s a pretty serious allegation, but a man matching his age and name was in fact arrested for this crime in 2000 in New York. It was written about in the New York Post and the New York Times, although they give slightly different accounts of the story. The Times reports that he initially claimed the baby fell out of bed and brought the baby to a hospital, while the Post reports that he claimed the baby was choking and paramedics came to his apartment.
Both reports state that he was arrested for shaking the baby and initially charged with second degree murder. The Post also reports that he had multiple charges prior to 2000, including one for rape.
Cops said Martinez has a record of three arrests, including one on rape charges in 1998 and a marijuana bust last May.
And where he Hell is DCF in all of this? His girlfriend Jennifer Nuñez-Raldiris allows this maggot, who literally killed an infant, to be around her children. Fuck her too. I guess DCF is too busy investigating how long the hockey coach in Andover went without buying his players Panera Bread.
Anyone who has ever used the “I am that girl” Facebook filter has been plowed by someone beats dogs, rapes women, or kills children. That’s just a scientific fact.
This is an inexcusable systematic failure that is sadly all too common in Massachusetts. A baby killing rapist moved to New Bedford, got arrested multiple times for selling fentanyl, moved in with a woman and her children, got caught on film beating a dog mercilessly, and it took a public shaming campaign from a woman on Facebook Live to force the New Bedford Police to get off their asses and do something about it. Be better NBPD.
