Rochester, NY Cop Shoots and Kills Dog, after it Bites Woman

By Davy V.

WARNING: Disturbing graphic photos.

The trigger-happy Rochester, NY Police department has shot and killed another dog.

This latest shooting marks the second time in less than two months that a Rochester Police officer has discharged their firearm near innocent bystanders, on a residential street.

According to Rochester Police, a woman was bitten by a dog, on DeJonge Street, on Rochester's northeast side.

The woman is said to have suffered a 5-inch laceration to her torso.

Rochester Police say that when an ambulance arrived, they could not reach the woman because the dog was still lose and behaving in a threatening manner.

They refused to elaborate any further.

RPD says that's when they were called.

A Rochester Police officer who arrived on the scene, immediately shot and killed the dog.

On July 11, 2013, Rochester, NY Police officer Chris Burgstrom shot and killed "Cinnamon", a 9-year old Belgian Shepherd, twice in the head, right in front of its owner, Floyd James Jr., a U.S. Army veteran, after Burgstrom said the dog looked "aggressive".

That incident was the second time in just the past 6 months, that Rochester Police officer Chris Burgstrom has shot and killed family pet.

On January 8, 2013, Burgstrom shot and killed "Codi", a lost family dog, as his owner was looking for him.

RPD officer Burgstrom, responding to a call for a loose dog near Rochester's Charlotte Park, spotted Codi, struck the scared dog with his cruiser, then chased him down to a pier, where he removed his department-issued Remington 870 shotgun from his cruiser, and shot Codi in the back of the head, executing the innocent family pet.
