Good morning pittie lovers! I have a petition for you all to sign today for a pitbull that was shot in the back of the head, as well as three other times by a Monroe County sheriffs deputy on June 1st, 2012. This story hits close to home for me as Gary Brockler was my neighbor for years and I knew Diablo as Gary’s pitbulls were notorious in our neighborhood for being well trained, silly and gentle boys. Here in Rochester, we have the highest kill rate per capita of dogs by the police while on calls in the state of New York. Please sign this petition and help us let Monroe County’s Sheriffs Department know that we will no longer tolerate the abuse of power and intimidation that comes with murdering our family pets. Here is Diablo’s story:

The two Sheriff’s deputies – Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn, has refused to release their names though it’s known they work out of the Zone A Substation – fired at least four rounds at Diablo (WARNING- EXTREMELY GRAPHIC PHOTO OF DIABLO AFTER HE WAS SHOT- NSFW), with at least one of those rounds penetrating through the Brockler’s garage door, ricocheting off the cement floor then going through a garage window, nearly missing a house next door.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s department, which initially stated that they were dispatched to Brockler’s home for a call about a house party, changed their story less than 48 hours after the shooting, now saying that the reason they went to the residence on Whitney Rd. was for an illegally parked vehicle in front of the residence.

Gary Brockler, was in his living room watching a movie when he heard what he describes as several loud bangs. When he opened his front door and walked outside he saw several Monoroe County Sheriff’s deputies and his dog Diablo, laying in a pool of his own blood in the driveway.

When asked why it takes several officers for an illegally parked vehicle, O’Flynn stuttered, back pedalled, then stated “That is what I am trying to determine.”

One very disturbing thing is the fact that it appears that 7 year old Diablo, was shot in the back of the head, indicating that he was retreating, and therefore contradicting Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn’s claims that Diablo was charging at deputies.

Described by many people as a beautiful, loving, dog, neighbors, who would drive by Brockler’s home everyday, are saddened that they will never again see what many have called “one of the most friendliest dogs ever.”

Unfortunately, this is not the first case where local law enforcement has shot and killed innocent pets. In fact in a recent newspaper article a couple of years ago, Rochester, New York, per capita, lead New York State with the most police shootings of dogs.

Since 2009, the Rochester, New York Police department alone, has shot 78 dogs, killing 30. In most cases, such as in Gary Brockler’s, people’s pets have been shot and killed on their own property.

As is typically the case with police, especially after shooting and killing unarmed, innocent people, in an attempt to put their “spin” on unjust incidents such as this, the Monroe County Sheriff’s department, under the leadership of Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn, has already started to cover up this injustice committed by one of their own by saying that Diablo, was “aggressive”. It is their way of justifying their actions in their killing of an innocent dog, and a member of Mr. Brockler’s family.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s department has come under heavy criticism, not only for the killing of an innocent, loving pet, but also for the reckless, irresponsible conduct of the two Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies who fired off at least 4 rounds, which could have seriously injured or even killed innocent people sleeping in neighboring homes.

Please reblog this, share it on your facebook, or with a friend. This could be anyone’s dog.

Justice for Diablo! <—- petition

I refuse to even look at the picture, I know it’ll really upset me, but I did sign this. Won’t you do the same?
