This shocking CCTV footage shows a police officer shooting a dog in the head and killing it for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
What was that, target practice?
The NYPD still refuses to release the name of the cop that did it, likely for fear someone will see this video and want to treat him the way he treated the dog.
The playful and innocent dog, shot by an NYPD police officer for absolutely no reason whatsoever, was named Spike.
Via Daily Mail:
These shocking pictures show the gruesome moment an NYPD cop shot dead a family’s dog in what appears to be an unprovoked attack.
Two police officers were responding to a call at a neighboring apartment in the Bronx when Yvonne Rosado opened her door to see what the commotion was about.
Surveillance footage obtained by the New York Daily News shows her four-year-old pitbull, Spike, wandering out into the hallway and excitedly wagging his tail.
The barking dog – who seems more playful than aggressive – approaches one of the cops, who has already withdrawn his gun. The spooked police officer backs down the stairwell before opening fire, fatally wounding Spike with a single gunshot to the head.
One woman who appeared to live in the building had to be restrained after she tried to slap the officer who killed Spike.
Ms Rosado [Spike’s owner] said: ‘The officer just reacted badly. I was screaming, “He’s friendly! He’s friendly!” But he still did that to my dog.’ She told the Daily News that her beloved pooch was ‘a gentle giant’ and her ‘big snuffleupagas’.
Just reacted badly?
If this cop would do that to a harmless, friendly, innocent animal like someone’s pet dog, why wouldn’t he also do it to a child or someone’s grandma? To anybody?
“The incident is being reviewed by our force investigation division and the findings will be subject to a firearms discharge review board,” Police spokesman Lieutenant John Grimpel stated to the press, (as if with this video evidence it even takes an “investigation” because clearly everyone can see exactly what happened here). According to NYPD rules, “Police officers shall not discharge their firearms at a dog or other animal except to protect themselves or another person from physical injury and there is no other reasonable means to eliminate the threat.”
Clearly that isn’t what happened with Spike, as anybody with a pair of eyeballs can see. It’s on tape for crying out loud. That cop obviously didn’t know he was being recorded via security cam.
The NYPD has yet to issue so much as a basic apology to Ms. Rosado for her murdered pet, and instead, the department continues to hide a psychopathic dog murderer in its ranks, allowing a killer cop back on on the streets of New York City to likely kill again.
Way to serve and protect there, guys.
