There are no words to express how horrified we are at this video from The New York Post, that shows the dogfighting ring run by Frederick Douglass Moorefield Jr., he Pentagon’s deputy chief information officer for command, control, and communications. We are warning you now: the video and the story is incredibly violent and disturbing, and is not safe for work or those who love animals.
From The New York Post:
WASHINGTON — A senior Defense Department official ran a vicious dogfighting ring — and used jumper cables to execute animals that lost in the savage battles, according to recently released court documents.
Frederick Douglass Moorefield Jr., 62, the Pentagon’s deputy chief information officer for command, control, and communications, is charged with “promoting and furthering animal fighting venture,” the Maryland US Attorney’s Office announced Monday.
The investigation into Moorefield — who named his dogfighting business “Geehad Kennels,” an apparent homophone for “jihad” — began in 2018 when Anne Arundel County Animal Control discovered the bodies of two dogs in plastic bags that included mail addressed to his Arnold, Md., home, according to a recently unsealed affidavit in the case.
“The distribution and number of recent and healed dog bite wounds (scars) present on both dogs was consistent with organized dogfighting,” an FBI agent wrote in the affidavit. “Based on this information, I believe that Moorefield sponsored each of these dogs in a dogfight.”
Veterinary medical examiners were unable to determine the dogs’ causes of death, but the investigator believes Moorefield killed them himself if they did not die in a fight, according to the report.
Investigators allege Moorefield killed some of the dogs with jumper cables.

Sick. Heartbreaking. Hard to read.— Carly Atchison (@CarlyAtch) October 3, 2023
BTW, the official, Frederick Douglass Moorefield, and his accomplice, Mario Damon Flythe, are both out of custody and the maximum penalty is just 5 years in prison.
The punishment for this type of crime should be far more severe. https://t.co/yG6p0YzyeV
Five years doesn't seem harsh enough for this sort of thing.
This is absolutely despicable. Lock his ass up and throw away the key. Poor baby doggies. https://t.co/D9P0ZToFQ7— Space Outlaw (@RadioAnarchy17) October 3, 2023
Prison may be too kind.

Simple dismissal is not punishment enough.https://t.co/QkAJPYN18Y
It is really the worst thing you'll read on Twitter/X today.

We stopped believing in government a long time ago, but feel free to join us.
He should be terminated.— Margie (@Margie____) October 3, 2023
Yes, he should.
The New York Post reports:
Pentagon spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Tim Gorman confirmed that the DOD is “aware of the criminal complaint” but declined to say whether Moorefield remained employed in his position.
“We can confirm that the individual is no longer in the workplace, but we cannot comment further on an individual personnel matter,” Gorman said.
There's your non-answer answer.
Michael Vick got 21 months in a federal Prison for this...— Super Ultra MAGA Tenorman 🇺🇸 (@thetenorman) October 3, 2023
That's not enough.
Mike Vick lost prime years of his career over this. Lets see if the rules are the same for this fool https://t.co/AC1WJBg9Bd— ☀️🇺🇸🐻 Dominicoon🦝 🇩🇴🌙 (@Dominicoon09) October 3, 2023
We'll be curious, too.
This is the kind of people our government hires https://t.co/1ohqi0zb1K— Robin (@RobinYvarra) October 3, 2023
And the story says Moorefield has been employed with the government in some capacity since 2008, and the ring dates back to 2018. How did this go unnoticed that long?

If I say what kind of punishment I think he should get, I will be kicked off this platform and have a knock on my door from the fed bois... https://t.co/39Eg4MRS9L
If you peruse the replies and quotes, Jimmy isn't alone in what he's thinking, but it's probably not worth getting in hot water over.
This is one of the most awful things we've seen on Twitter/X in a long time. We hope Moorefield is brought to justice, and will keep you updated.
