“I’ll put this mother-(expletive) down in a minute.” An officer reportedly stated these words after responding to a call about two aggressive dogs. His body camera then captured him shooting Angelo, the 3-year-old American Staffordshire terrier, in the face. Angelo whimpered and screamed before running away. He was later euthanized due to the severity of his injuries.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chief Metz,

An Aurora police officer allegedly shot a dog in the face, leading to the dog’s death. The officer’s body camera reportedly recorded him joking about shooting and killing the dog. We demand that this officer be reprimanded for his alleged unprofessional behavior.

“It just angers me the way (the officers) talked about (the dog); the way they joked about him; the way he ran off in pain screaming.” stated Valeria Rios, the dog’s owner. “And he was just wagging his tail at them the whole time he was shot.” The officer was called to the scene following reports of two unleashed dogs attacking someone.

Aggressive or not, this dog did not deserve to be treated like a joke. We demand that this officer be reprimanded for this alleged unprofessional behavior.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This disgusting so called “officer of the law” must be prosecuted, stripped of his job and served with a lifetime ban from having anything to do with ANY animal. He has to pay for his outrageous behavior. The streets will be far safer with the likes of this unprofessional scumbag gone!

    It’s clear for me his own shooting skill is nothing but a joke. And also clear he enjoys shooting those who can’t shoot back. Such people must not be anywhere near police and guns!

      I was a security guard myself, and I never needed any weapons to deal with dogs, including those so-called “dangerous”. But – if you’ve got no brain, of course you need a gun.
