Army Vet Says Police Raided Wrong Apartment, Killed His Dog
WKBW.com ^ | June 4, 2013 | Allen Leight

BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Adam Arroyo has lived in his Breckenridge apartment for three years but has never experienced a day like this past Monday; when police busted down his door in search of drugs, shooting and killing his dog in the process.

"She's over here, chained up, and look at all these bullet holes man. Look at the blood right here," Arroyo explained as he showed Eyewitness cameras where his pit bull mix Cindy had been shot.

"She was tied up in the kitchen like I tie her up every single day, and they shot her for no reason."

When Arroyo returned home Monday evening he found his apartment torn apart, door busted down and several bullet holes in his kitchen wall.

He also found a search warrant for 304 Breckenridge, upper apartment.

The suspect named in the warrant was described as a black male and was wanted on suspicion of dealing crack.

Arroyo is Hispanic and lives at 304 Breckenridge, upper-rear apartment, which has a completely separate entrance and is clearly marked on his mail box.

Reporter: "You have never used or sold drugs in this apartment?" Arroyo: "Never. Never. I don't do drugs. I'm a United States veteran. I work everyday. I'm just trying to live my life."

Arroyo is a combat veteran who served in Iraq and plans to join the National Guard. This incident, however has left him heart-broken and angry.

"For police to wrongfully come into my house and murder my dog... It wasn't that they felt threatened. No. They murdered my dog," said Arroyo, beginning to tear up.

"That was my dog, man. That was my dog. They didn't have to do that, you know. They didn't have to do that."

Arroyo now has to pay to have Cindy cremated. He also had to repair his door at his own cost and has had to miss work.

He plans now to press charges against the City of Buffalo.

Buffalo Police spokesperson Michael DeGeorge says Internal Affairs has launched an investigation into the case, but that police believe they had the proper address.

He also says detectives "don't believe the dog was chained or leashed" when they executed the raid. Adding that if any wrong doing is found in the investigation that officers will face consequences.

DeGeorge could not comment on whether officers found any drugs inside the apartment.

One’s residence is irrelevant to what the law states.

Do you live in Fairfield, Iowa? I don't. Furthermore, I don't care what the law states in Fairfield, Iowa.

Translation: You wish to ignore that example because it is a clarion example of the fallacious reasoning behind breed specific legislation. As Fairfield, Iowa shows, Breed specific legislation is a means of limiting liberty, not solving the actual problem of irresponsible dog ownership.

That is why a liberty loving conservative can never support it.

Thank you for reminding Free Republic where you stand on liberty.

Freegards,

Um, *no*.

Odin is why we no longer have the cat.

The cat fancied himself 10 feet tall and Dober-proof.

He was not.

We took him back to his breeder for his own safety.

You missed the point — it wouldn’t and didn’t and doesn’t matter if someone is home or not. That does NOT give the cops the right to break in and blast away. I don’t care if the dog was a bully breed, poodle, chihuahua or any other type. The point is — and pay attention, please, the FACTS are — the cops entered the wrong home and killed someone’s non-attacking pet. Got it???? Clear now??? How many posts has it taken to get that through to you????

If they start quoting the dog-bite law site as “proof”, I *might* break out in laughter, though.

[although the bizarre straw man foray into another poster’s ability to pay for a kennel was amusing...in a warped, non-linear kind of way]

Hey, now, Sal, give him time! He’ll get there — I have no doubt....

Your ability to continually obfuscate, belittle and divert attention away from the FACTS leaves nothing to be desired...and your comprehension level is nonexistent if you think for one moment that you have been staying on topic. You have chased enough rabbits throughout this thread — and I for one have no interest in continuing this “non-conversation” since you can’t stick to the topic at hand.

A joke, since you are the one who cannot stay on topic. You refuse to deal with the facts and want to divert attention by turning this into a convo regarding pit bulls/bully type dogs versus any other as if that has any relevance whatsoever in what occurred. Then you want to attack another poster here for tying her dog up as if THAT has anything to do with the topic! Get a clue.

As much as I realize you are desperate to run down the rabbit trail, your continued reluctance to acknowledge the danger, behind animosity toward a particular breed or type which leads to breed specific legislation which leads to such laws as demonstrated in Fairfield, Iowa, is disappointing.

Such simplistic thinking as “Oh, I don’t live in Fairfield, Iowa; I can ignore this” will only ensure further encroachment of such liberties.

One cannot assume one is “safe” in that score any more than one can assume that their dogs are safe from an illegal invasion of government employees on their property.

Although ‘crating’ is the usual nowadays, with the ready availability of such things, it wasn’t always so.

“Back in the day”, people might attempt house training or other behavior modification [often for the safety of the dog, in the owner’s absence] by attaching a swivel-hook leash to a swivel bolt mounted on the wall.

It’s not unheard of at all.

Happily, crates, kennels and ‘play pens’ are very common now.

If tying up a dog inside is the only way a person has to keep it safe from harm, it’s not a problem.

Sadly for this poor dog’s owner, it didn’t work.

“Harm” kicked in the door and shot the dog in cold blood.

How anyone can possibly defend this unconstitutional act of brutality is beyond me.

But again — that’s a separate issue to be discussed. It doesn’t matter if the dog was tied up or not in terms of the illegitimacy of the action committed here. The cops were wrong. Whether the dog was tied up or not, whether the owner was home or not, whether the dog was a Chi, Great Dane, bully breed, or some other breed...None of that is the point, but sadly that seems to have escaped the notice of some here — who want to make any and all of the above “the point”.
