NYPD Cop who Killed Dog with Wagging Tail Abused Authority

The New York City police officer who [__shot and killed a dog with a wagging tail__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2016/03/28/video-nypd-cop-shot-killed-dog-wagging-tail-hand-owner-265-burial-fee/) while its owner yelled “he’s friendly! he’s friendly!” abused his authority, the Civilian Complaint Review Board determined

The review board also substantiated charges against two fellow officers who were with NYPD officer Ruben Cuesta that day, forcing their way into the building that on February 13, according to the [__New York Daily News.__](http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/bronx/exclusive-charged-shooting-dog-bronx-graphic-video-article-1.2823156?utm_content=bufferf4604&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer)

The cops were at the building responding to a domestic violence call at another apartment when Yvonne Rosado opened her door and her pit bull, Spike, came running out, wagging its tail.

Cuesta feared for his life and shot the dog, then scurried down the stairs.

Rosado, who was dressed in her undergarments, appeared to go into shock, placing her body over her dog as it slowly died, wagging its tail.

She then walked down the stairs to confront the cop, slipping and falling on the dog’s blood, before taking several swings at Cuesta.

The cops restrained her and she was not charged.

Now that the civilian review board made its determination that the cops abused their authority, the NYPD will conduct its own investigation, taking the board’s recommendations into consideration.

In other words, they can easily come up with a completely different determination, saying Cuenta feared for his life, which would make it justified.

After they killed the dog, they had it cremated, sticking Rosada with the bill if she wanted to have her dog’s remains

In 2010, the NYPD killed her legless cat, Bebe, breaking its neck during the search of another apartment, according to the [__New York Daily News.__](http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/bronx/nypd-shoots-kills-bronx-family-beloved-dog-graphic-article-1.2576863)

Below is the edited video as well as [__the extended video__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2016/03/30/nypd-cop-shooting-dog-extended-video-emerges-beat-owner/).

Rosada has filed a lawsuit against the city over the latest incident. Cuesta remains on-duty.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

Please make a donation below or click on side tab to learn more about our mission.
