Another story that will make you “proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m freeeeeeeeeeee….”
As an Iraq war veteran, Adam Arroyo saw more than his share of bullets flying.
However, Arroyo would have never imagined that he would one day come home, to find his own apartment riddled with bullet holes, and his pet dog Cindy executed, by Buffalo, NY Police officers, after they executed a search warrant.
On the wrong apartment.
That’s exactly what Arroyo found Monday evening when he returned to his Buffalo apartment.
Buffalo Police officers busted his door, entered his apartment, and shot Cindy.
“She’s over here, chained up, and look at all these bullet holes man, look at the blood right there,” Arroyo told Buffalo’s WKBW News.
Buffalo Police left a search warrant in Arroyo’s apartment, which lists the apartment to be searched, as the upper apartment.
Arroyo lives in the upper-rear apartment, which has a completely separate entrance, and the mailbox is clearly marked with his name.
The suspect named in the search warrant is described as a male black, wanted on suspicion of selling crack cocaine..
Arroyo is Latino.
“For police to wrongfully come into my house and murder my dog, it wasn’t that they felt threatened, no, they murdered my dog,” said Arroyo as his eyes welled up with tears, as he added, “That was my dog, man, that was my dog, they didn’t ave to do that, you know. They didn’t have to do that.
Buffalo, NY Police spokesperson Michael DeGeorge says the department’s Internal Affairs division has launched an investigation into the case, but also added that police officers believed they had the right address.
Not only does Adam Arroyo, a veteran who served this country, return home to find his best friend shot dead, laying in a pool of blood, but he also will have to pay to have Cindy cremated.
Arroyo also has to pay to repair his own apartment door.
Another disgusting case of trigger-happy cops, executing an innocent family pet, this time after raiding the wrong apartment.
