Was the cop in the right?

Spokesperson: "Policeman Knocked" Owner Off Dog Before Detaining, Shooting It


We recently received an email from a spokesperson for the owner of the dog who was shot and killed during today's Adams Morgan Day festival. According to the spokesperson, the animal's owner -- known simply as Aaron -- is currently too "rightfully distraught" to speak directly with the media.

Here is the full statement by the spokesperson, including a description of what happened this afternoon:

Parrot is [a] two-year-old dog for whom we have cared for almost a month. He has never bitten another dog and is regularly walked along 17th street during the busiest times of day without incident. He's extremely friendly.

Today, there was an unexpected scuffle between Parrot and a poodle. Aaron, subdued Parrot, who was wearing both a leash and a harness. To do so, he placed his hands in Parrot's mouth and held it open, which he has done when Parrot gets overexcited when romping in the apartment. As it had in the past, this calmed Parrot down.

At this point, the policeman knocked Aaron off of Parrot. The policeman put his knee in the middle of Parrot's back while pulling Parrot's forelegs behind him, as one would do with an armed criminal. Without waiting to determine whether this technique would calm Parrot, the policeman grabbed Parrot, lifted him off the ground, and brought him to the top of the concrete staircase. He threw Parrot over the banister, down twelve steps, and onto the concrete floor. Then, the policeman stood at the top of the stairs, drew his weapon, and executed Parrot. Aaron cannot recall the number of shots fired.


Parrot:


ps: Some witnesses state Parrot had the poodles paw in his mouth,others state that the poodle had Parrot's face in it's mouth.

pit bulls are always wrong,
owners are always liars as to how it all starts,
small dogs know better than to attack pit bulls,
and cops are always right,
the badge,gun and arrogance is all the evidence you need to justify that.

Ugh these stories I swear .. You don't cull a DA dog. It's never the dogs fault it's always the owner's fault ( at least that is how it should be). Yes the cop was wrong the dog didn't do anything he wasn't bred to do. And the way the cop killed the dog was barbaric and inhuman.

The cop did not own the dog, the cop came out of no where,while the owner had already subdued the dog,knocked the owner out of the way,and killed his dog.
Even the owner of the poodle was in shock of what happened. She didn't blame the dog at all.

I feel he had no right,and over reacted,but I wasn't there,so I don't know the whole story.

Yeah I saw that and went back and retracted my statement ... The cop was def in the wrong his actions showed more hate and fear towards a breed that the average person does just not understand.

Evian is an unknown quantity at this point
Cop was wrong! One day this will explode all over their faces. They will mess with the wrong dog owner and all hell will break loose. They will find out the hard way that they shouldn't be afraid of the dog but of the owners.

what is his department saying? are they just hoping it blows over or is he facing consequences? a uniform does not give anyone the right to treat a dog that way or act above the law. i get so angry reading about cops who abuse their power. i'm sure if it was just another person off the street the owner would have stepped in and beat the s*** out of him, but people tend to avoid interfering with an out-of-line cop for obvious reasons. the thought sickens me even more because i bet he's the "it's just a dog" type of person who laughs it off and doesn't feel REAL remorse for his actions.

The cop is now trying to say the dog bite 3 people. The dog has bitten NO ONE!The owner's hand was bleeding, cause he used it like a breakstick to pry his dog of the poodle's leg. It wasn't even a serious injury.
This dog use to go to work with the volunteer,and had a pending adoption,at the event where he was killed.

There is now a photo up of the cop subduing the dog. It is horrific! I wish I never saw it.

edit: it was proved that the poodle bit a person trying to intervene,not the pit bull.

What makes this even worse. The cop who did this, is a K-9 officer,and he did this in front of a crowed,children included.

That's horrific. That cop should definitely be penalized somehow, and a k-9 officer no less? HA! it's ridiculous what people will do/say to cover up what they've done. I feel bad for that owner and the potential adopter, So sad.

i looked this up. the dog was a pit/shar-pei mix. the article says that the cop's actions are justified EVEN THOUGH the owner of the dog has a witness coming forward. the cop is claiming that after he tossed the dog, it charged him so he shot it. BUT WHY DID HE THROW THE DOG DOWN THE STAIRS IN THE FIRST PLACE? how is that justified? this doesn't make sense to me. that dude is a genuine prick.

______
Block's account is supported by at least one witness, Jennifer Naideth, 29, who was in town from Los Angeles selling cosmetics at the festival. She called the shooting "so unnecessary and so violent," adding that "there was no human life in danger."

Police and others had a different perspective.

Jacob Kishter, commander of the 3rd Police District, said that once the officer pushed the dog down the stairwell, "the dog immediately turns and runs at the officer aggressively." The officer, 25-year-veteran Scott Fike, fired one shot, fatally wounding the dog, which police described as a pit bull.

"It's definitely going to be justified based on everything that we know," Kishter said, adding that police interviewed the officer, the owners of both dogs and other officers on scene.

The picture still makes me so upset. I didn't post it on here,cause I was afraid it would offend people.
Witnesses also state that the dog did not run up the stairs,it was hurt,and was limping it's way back up them when it was shot.

It was most likely going back to it's owner for protection.

exactly, shooting the dog is one thing. tossing him down the stairs, or at all, is completely unnecessary and would most likely make a bad situation worse.
