Arrow Justice for Cisco

I know this does not belong here, but I want to share this with as many people as I can. This is truly a sad story and I can't even imagine how this feels.

That is just awful. I can't really see any justification for this. A trigger happy, coward that shouldn't be a police officer might explain it...but there is no "excuse". I can't imagine it either, how horrid.

Cisco has a fb page now too. This has made ABC, CNN, radio stations & more. The APD did release an apology but I think at this point it's not enough.

I agree, Poco. Its far from "enough". I would want this officer off the force - and never allowed to be on any other "force", he shouldn't be carrying a gun w a license to kill - I don't know how much more clear that could get.

OMG that's awful. I wonder what the call was like? I didn't think it was common practice to hold someone at gun point right off the bat for a domestic disturbance. If the man was clearly unarmed, why not at least give him the chance to restrain the animal?

if a dog was coming at me when i was going to check out a scene then yea i would shot them too... its sad cisco was shot but the officer had a right to shot even if he was at the wrong house... the dog could have been a threat.
its a sad story for both cop and dog and dog owner but there is way to much that plays into this besides just thinking the cop was trigger happy...

For me personally, watching my dog get shot to death before my very eyes would be like watching my CHILD get shot to death. They are my family, my best friends... I can't imagine this man's pain.

This police officer really ought to lose his badge. Unfortunately, I just don't think people care enough to make this happen.

Anyway, there's a special place in hell, I hope.

I completely agree. I would be heartbroken and really mad all at the same time.

he held an unarmed man at gunpoint and shot his best friend all because he can't read an address correctly.

this guy should not have a gun.

Kait, the officer was responding to a domestic disturbance. I would think they would not be "trigger happy" when responding to ma and pa kettle yelling at each other, or even shoving one another. He gets to a house where a man is playing frizbee and he doesn't stop to check his non-existant "common sense" or gps?? From the looks of it, the dog didn't weigh over 50 lbs. I know I would have waited to fire until the dog actually went for me -as in clearly attempted to attack.
