A California police officer reportedly from the same department as the cop who fatally shot a man’s dog this week, defended the officer’s actions by blaming the dog’s death on its owner Wednesday.
Following a massive backlash from citizens, the Hawthorne police officer took it upon himself to inform the department’s critics of his feelings toward the incident in a strange, nearly incoherent, Facebook rant.
“One of the best departments in the state one on looker with no business being there, if he wouldn’t have stopped but with his oen agenda wanting to record a mistake by the HPD and there was none cost him his dog,” said Officer Vasquez.
“The few of you out there that don’t trust your police move.”
Vasquez went on to call for the dog owner’s prosecution, claiming the man, 52-year-old Leon Rosby, should be charged for the death of his own dog.
“Want to blame someone blame the dog owner for not minding his own business and putting himself and the officers in harms way, he should be prosecuted to the fullest letter of the law including the death of his pet,” said Vasquez.
Officer Vasquez has since disabled his Facebook account.
The Hawthorne Police Department also pulled three police officers from street duty after they began receiving death threats according to police. Rosby and his family conducted a news conference Wednesday, urging people to stop threatening the officers and their families.
“Just calm down. Stop threatening them and their families. All police officers are not bad,” said Rosby.
The Hawthorne Police Department’s website was also taken down by DDOS (distributed denial of service) attack Thursday, reportedly after the hacktivist group Anonymous uploaded a stern warning to the department regarding their actions.
Last Sunday, Rosby was arrested while trying to film an armed robbery SWAT barricade in Hawthorne, California, in what he says was an attempt to keep the police accountable. Officers claimed Rosby was disturbing the active crime scene by filming and playing music too loud which led to Rosby’s arrest and his dog’s eventual death.[divide]
