Senior Pentagon Official Ran Dogfighting Ring and Executed Ring Victims

Senior Pentagon Official Ran Dogfighting Ring and Executed Ring Victims

The Pentagon is now in the news with some of the most heinous criminal charges against one of its senior officials – running a dogfighting ring and brutal execution of dogs abused in the ring.

On Tuesday (October 3), Pentagon’s deputy chief information officer for command, control, and communications – Frederick Douglass Moorefield Jr. – made headlines in the press after he was charged in Maryland for running a dogfighting ring for many years.

The official announcement of Moorefield’s indictment, released on Monday (October 2nd), shows that the 62-year-old deputy chief of communications was charged with “promoting and furthering animal fighting venture” along with Mario Damon Flythe, also of Maryland. The two arranged for coordinated dogfights while using pseudonyms on an encrypted messaging application to communicate with people across the country.

Moorefield used the name “Geehad Kennels” and Flythe used the name “Razor Sharp Kennels” to identify their respective dogfighting operations.

The New York Post reported that the evidence collected from Moorefield’s residence, including text messages from his phone, showed that he has been involved in dogfighting throughout his career at the Department of Defense (DOD), which started in 2008. He has enjoyed working in leadership positions in the Pentagon and took his current role in the communication department in 2020.

Moorefield’s dogfighting business under the name of Geehad Kennels began in 2018 and it was reported back then by animal services in Anne Arundel Country.

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.

It took five years to finally indict him and during his dogfighting crimes, he enjoyed security clearance all along.

In the first week of September, the FBI found five dogs of pit bull breed at Moorefield’s home. The dogs were held captive in small cages in the dark windowless basement. Also found by investigators were jumper cables carrying dog hair and blood stains at their ends, indicating that some dogs used in his dogfighting ring were executed using those cables for performing poorly in the fights. 

Moorefield and Flythe appeared in the court on September 28 and U.S. Magistrate Judge J. Mark Coulson ordered their release pending trial under the supervision of U.S. Pretrial Services. The Pentagon was quick to scrub Moorefield’s official page from their website. But the internet diggers didn’t take long to retrieve his page from the web archives and post it on Twitter/X.

    Execute the SOB! anyone in this tupe of position doing attrocities like this, especially having a sick name for the ring is beyond appalling! Many of us are trying to stay ahead of abuse all over this globe trying to help save these poor animals from these monsters and when it’s in our own country it’s even worse? Especially knowing some disgusting A Hole has a clearance and flatout murdering animals! No tolerance!
    The courts need to throw need to make this man an example by putting thids POS and other disgusting participants to death. Disgusting garbage we have in government. If they are that cruel to a poor animal you know they’ll do it to people. All they need to do is dig more.

    Moorefield may you and all your sick participants face the same treatment ten times over what you did to those poor animals! I hope they execute you!

      You do realize that this man Moorefield is a black man? You are calling for this black man to be executed, and you call him an A Hole where I am sure the A does not stand for Angel.
