The 18 year veterans police horse was not fit for duty.
The veterinarian even points out that the police officer Eric Evans fails to notate that Stoney the horse had a prior injury and had a healing fractured leg.
Also, note that each paragraph says "superficial injury".
The City Attorney of San Francisco didn't report this. The San Francisco Examiner didn't report this. The San Francisco Chronicle didn't report this. The San Francisco Police Department didn't report this.
All anyone could report is that David Gizzarelli was a bum who punched his (step) father in the face. That also, was a lie.
