THIS PHOTO IS FROM 2010 AND IT IS ALL OVER THE INTERNET. OCCUPY OAKLAND WAS A DUMB MOVE LAW ENFORCERS, PEOPLE ARE NOW SHARING STORIES OF BRUTALITY…..SHARE AWAY………
The dog was named Parrot. This was taken moments before Parrot was murdered by the cop. The cop drove his knee into the middle of Parrot’s back while stretching Parrot’s forelegs behind him, as one would do with an armed criminal. Without waiting to determine whether this technique would calm Parrot, the cop 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 cop stood at the top of the stairs, drew his weapon, and executed Parrot. Aaron, the animal’s owner, cannot recall the number of shots fired. Witnesses state that Parrot was not harming anybody and was simply frightened by the cop.
UPDATE – Last Sunday afternoon, Aaron Block brought his two-year-old Pit bull mix to the Adam Morgan Festival in Washington,DC; a family oriented street festival celebrating the area neighborhoods, artisans, street vendors, and businesses. As Block walked up 18th Street with his rescue dog Parrot, Sheila Martins and her Bichon-poodle mix walked by, Parrot attacked the smaller dog. Block was able to separate the dogs and was subduing Parrot when the police arrived.
The story now takes on two conflicting sides.
According to Block, Parrot was calming down when the policeman came over, grabbed the dog and threw the dog over the steps. The dog was getting up, and the officer shot him. He’s a ” very people-friendly dog with absolutely no bite history,” stated Block about the dog he was fostering from Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.
Officer Scott Fike, a 25 year veteran fired one shot at Parrot killing the dog and claimed the dog started running at him to attack. Jacob Kishter, commander backed up the officer’s story. Police witness Tony DePass, a former DC police officer also stated the dog was charging.
Now according to multiple eyewitnesses, ” Parrot had already been subdued and was being held securely by his foster Aaron Block, when the police arrived on the scene; Parrot was not ‘out of control.’ Lucky Dog Animal Rescue states the dog did not charge officers either. ” The dog was just getting to his feet when the officer drew his gun and opened fire without provocation.” Eyewitness, Jennifer Naideth, a festival participant supported Block’s story, and called the dog killing ” so unnecessary and so violent.”
