Shocked!
How could you police department! You put your life on the line everyday but it seems to me your a coward with validating that kind of honor.
06/05/2013 9:22AM
Get out of this town trigger!
Department that authorized this NON-SENSE need to be down graded to community service and find the good in all things, since I see we have the badge of honor going off their rockers instantaneous.
06/05/2013 9:27AM
What a Joke
I seen the picture of the small dog, what a joke and I wonder what kind of drugs the Buffalo police was on that day to do something so low

Keystone Kops
This is just another in a long string of mess-ups and cover-ups in the last 10-15 years in the Buffalo PD. There needs to be an intensive, top-to-bottom investigation of the department and how they do things...and that'll happen right after pigs fly out of my nether regions. Buffalo cops stink.

Man's best friend?
To the personal that thought.... I think! Two faced. Dog was chained b/c she eats clothing and shoes. You go above your duties, detailed oriented? I think now get off the force, your a disgrace. How is anyone to trust you. You have spooked the whole neighborhood and guess what, whomever you thought you were going to get in custody, they jump shipped. Nice job. You need counseling and Australia!
06/05/2013 9:46AM
5 shots in a wall!
Pathetic. PD needs a bath, neutered, and de-gunned. you owe this Cindy owner a huge apology and he is a war vet? Wow! Are you trying to make him feel again that his home is even a no man country? Send you trigger to Iraq! I'm not kidding!
06/05/2013 10:08AM
Shame on You Bflo Police!
A little trigger happy? Shame on you...you screwed up with the wrong apt and killed this guys pet...a pet who was like a family memeber to him. Use a taser if you feel threatened...who the heck trains you people?!?!?!

Cops are Criminals
I will always answer my door armed to the teeth when I know it is a Murderer with a badge
06/05/2013 10:27AM
Buffalo's FINEST IDIOTS!
This is disgusting! She was tied on her chain, if she wasn't, she would have been shot by the door, not by the wall and her chain. This infuriates me Buffalo's FINEST IDIOTS!! On top of the fact, they were looking for a Black man and had the wrong apartment! SICKENING!
06/05/2013 10:30AM
cops have been infiltrated?with scum?in NYS
happening all to often whether dog was chained or not in the house she was IN THE HOUSE. They shoot dogs in fenced yards if THEY walk on YOUR property (THE POLICE) and your dog is lose they still don't have right to shoot that animal there is something MORE sinister going on here wake up people
06/05/2013 10:40AM
Can't stop crying
This the saddest story I've ever heard. I know Adam, he's the most honorable and decent man around. Want to do anything I can to help. These type of "errors" need to end.
06/05/2013 11:52AM
Heads should roll
That dog was tied up. It posed no danger to those cops. I come from a family of law enforcement.....I know all too well what dangers they are faced with every single day on the job.....this sure as hell was not one of them.
06/05/2013 11:53AM
Apologize????
When mistakes like this happen And they do quite often...the police department should incur the expense of getting this man a new forever friend...An apology is not nearly enough...
06/05/2013 11:55AM
You wonder why you get no respect...
Crack a history book JBTs. We reap what we sow. At this rate you will eventually reap your just rewards.
06/05/2013 12:20PM
AWFUL
HORRIBLE!!!!!!! Should be more than a slap on the wrist!!!!!!! That is a familys love!!!!
06/05/2013 12:58PM
Police without sense demanding cents
"Police have billed him for the dog's cremation..." Wound, meet salt.

2nd Amendment
Now you anti-gun liberals will understand why we need the second amendment and why it was written into the Bill of Rights. You can't trust our government and their para-military thugs.
06/05/2013 1:44PM
Still trust the cops? You shouldn't.
What would you expect from a cop? Seriously. We give these people guns, badges, and a free pass on violence, bullying, and they are untouchable. Nothing will come from this "investigation" if that is what it really is. The police are not yourfriends, and the government is not your friend. You people that keep voting for increased involvement by the government need to get that through your skulls before dogs turn into people.

Professionals
Remember NY'ers, law enforcement officers are the only ones professional enough to handle firearms. I feel so safe. I know Bloomterd isn't the mayor in Buff, but I would like to thank him for his buffoonery, Cuomo for his tyranny, all NY LEO's for their Gestapo-esque behavior, and those who wish to disarm all American's (whether they flat out admit it or say "We don't want to take your guns, psycho" while supporting bills that would bring us back to single shot muskets) for your ignorance and empowerment of rule. Another dog shot and another home raided by the professionals who don't double check before they break into a private building with guns blazing. We are all safer today.
06/05/2013 3:25PM
RE 2nd Amendment
LOL! The dog should have been armed! Gun nuts are funny.
06/05/2013 3:40PM
Wingnuts
Just shut up, right wingers. Stop saying stupid things.

The King's Men Can Do No Wrong
This poor surf should be thankful he's not in jail for questioning the King's army. Surfs have no property rights. Peasants go back to grazing. Nothing to see here. /sarc
06/05/2013 3:49PM
SPEECHLESS
So, a man carrying a gun 7 badge to serve and protect us is afraid of a dog that is chained! To bill the owner for your error? Good thing it wasn't a child sitting in a bouncy seat! Can you imagine the fear that would put on this cop! Buffalo should be ashamed for even thinking of billing this owner, let alone actually following through on this pathetic procedure. Does Buffalo need the money that bad. I have the perfect dog that i am fostering right now that I will donate to you when/if you want. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME BUFFALO. I AM ASHAMED TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS CITY.

War on Drugs
This is just another example of tragedy and waste as a result of the failed war on drugs. This is nothing new. In the early 1970's, the home of Herbert Giglotto (in Western Illinois or in Missouri) was mistaken for a drug house and the owners were terrorized. Mistakes happen, but all this is just plain stupid. What a waste.Shame, Shame!!
06/05/2013 4:47PM
Puppy should have been armed
And this is the same bunch of people that will have ALL the guns when they finish taking ours away. Think now......
06/05/2013 5:11PM
execute said warrant
buffalo's pd should hold a press conference to the public issuing an apology and announcing publically their execution of mr.arroyos dog.obviously this is a very tragic display of neglegence on their behalf. offering up a bill for the dogs creamation is a good slap in the face to mr. arroyo. in this day and age of technology mistakes were clearly made. how did the pd investigation not be aware of multiple apartments at the location ? the pd did not mace the animal instead they entered in a hail of gunfire to subdue a secured animal. if mr. arroyo had been home the situation could have been a grave situation.mr arroyo our prayers go out to you and cindy.
06/05/2013 5:12PM
Keep this up
And at some point the gang bangers in blue are going to torque off everyone so bad the people are going to ask "Why don't we just shoot the B*stards?", and no one will be able to come up with a good reason not to. If a citizen had killed a police dog actually attacking them, same charges as if they had killed a human cop. Human cops kill a defenseless dog on a chain, bill the owner for the disposal? I'm surprised they didn't tack on the bill for the ammo they expended!
06/05/2013 5:43PM
Wow.
Shoot his dog,trash his apartment and then bill him for disposing of the dog`s corpse! Only highly trained police officers can achieve this type of outstanding work.

What have we become
This is a tragedy. No doubt. If it were me and my dog, returned shots would have been fired, and I’d probably be dead. Adding to the sadness is what the anti 2nd amendment / anti gun people are saying. Don’t you realize that you could be next? Don’t you realize that because of the 1st (followed very closely by the 2nd amendment) you and I can have a debate about this issue, and that if push came to shove, that I would probably protect you, even though you disagree? What have we become as a nation? It is OK to chastise the average joe who pays his taxes, does not violate the f in sh*t load of stupid laws that we have, and, decides to own a gun. We are “gun nuts”. No sir / mam, you are delusional. God forbid (oops, did I mention God?!) that we want to express our rights. We are shouted down and labeled. People think that Hitler can’t happen again. It may not be the person, but the intent is happening before our eyes. Put down the dubie and wake up.
06/05/2013 10:21PM
Prepare
This case is worth a few million dollars, at least. Sue high and low. All of his Rights were violated. New York is running amuck, and is totally out of control. They must be getting prepared for the massive gun confiscation event. It is a mind set, andattitude. This behavior is in their training and their agenda
06/06/2013 3:28AM
Breakin' the Law
They're trying to pass a law against "harassing of peace officers." Basically says that if you make stink-eyes at a cop, he can charge you with a FELONY. So say that law was in place and they botch another raid, shoot another dog and the guy is home. What happens when he freaks and loses his mind and cusses out those dumb a$$ cops?
06/06/2013 7:45AM
DISGUSTING
DISGUSTING!!!!!
06/06/2013 8:11AM
typical
SOP for police with regard to dogs is to shoot first and ask questions later
06/06/2013 9:58AM
Aftermath....
Question? why did PD not do their homework of scoping out the area before any....duuuhhh aaaa Assumptions! Wish Cindy never had to be sacrificed. Take care Adam, Cindys with you in spirit.
06/06/2013 10:05AM
Fowl smell
If that Adams suddenly in the public view. Why can't we know whom had made this a mess in the first place. You know "trigger" you got explaining to do, but your actually what you think you are right now. No courage for even the mistakes you've made. Find a different job. We don't need you going up the ladder, in bed, with the BPD.
06/25/2013 6:54PM
Who are these people?
"Police have billed him for the dog's cremation and he has been in touch with the SPCA for assistance." Who are these people? They kill his dog and want him to PAY for the privilege? Trigger happy SOBs don't mind showing what an inhumane group of creeps they are, do they?
06/25/2013 7:04PM
poor cindy
What is it with the police, they seem to be shooting a lot of dogs lately for nothing, tha poor dog it was on a chain so they cant say it attacked them you evil bastards why did you do it such a lovely dog im so upset
06/25/2013 7:18PM
adam arroyo, pit bull
Are you fr.....in kidding me? They go to the wrong apt and kill a dog tied up? Then they bill him. Wow, I am at a loss of words. All he wanted was an apology, I would want their throats. D....n, that goes beyond cruel. I am so sorry for this man and his poor dog.
06/25/2013 7:28PM
Billed?!?!
Let me get this straight: The police shot and killed his dog and HE gets the bill for the cremation?!?!?!? REALLY?!?!?!? As if losing his dog to stupidity wasn't enough, now he's getting a bill for someone else's mistake?? The police department should pay for that man to get a new furry friend and maintain said furry pet for as long as furry pet lives, no questions asked, no if's, and's or but's about it!! THAT would be a start since there's nothing that can be done to bring that pet back. I'm so sorry for that man!
06/25/2013 7:44PM
You sonsabiches!!!
YOU ARE CHARGING HIM FOR THE CREMATION OF HIS DOG?! YOU ARE JOKES FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT!!! YOU VIOLATED THE LAW BY BREAKING AND ENTERING, DESTRUCTION OF PRIVATE PROPERTY, AND TAMPERING WITH EVIDENCE!!! I so want you morons to pay DEARLY for evil you have done!
06/25/2013 7:48PM
chained? in kitchen?
chained inside a kitchen?????some owner
06/25/2013 8:01PM
Bull
Why do police think that a chained dog is a danger to them, BAFFLING.....
06/25/2013 9:04PM
something sinister
ok, so why did they cremate Cindy without the owner's consent or a necropsy, seems like they are trying to hide something. They may have murdered her in cold blood or used her as target practice without just cause. Sue the pants off of them becausenow you will never know exactly what happened because it sounds like some sort of cover up.
06/25/2013 11:02PM
nazi police dept.
is it legal to raid a home like hitlers nazi gestapo?
06/26/2013 1:52AM
Death!!
I hope person that pulled the trigger dies the most horrific and painful death. I p*ss in the face of any mother f*cker that ever pulls a f*cking horsesh*t stunt like this. I feel horrible for the owner but if I were the owner I would personally do everything in my power to find the specific person/persons responsible and become a martyr by taking their lives and standing up against this kind of sh*t. I would defend my pit with my life, no questions asked (by any means necessary) I'm f*cking sick and tired of people hating on pit breeds based on the most ridiculous assumptions. My pit is the most loving girl ever. She is amazing with any creature and person she has ever come across. These people responsible for this should be tied down and slowly blowtorched from the legs up to their hips and from their hands to their shoulders and have salt poured in the torched holes and let them feel agonizing pain of death. F*ck you scum. I hope you die of all the cancers of the world!
06/26/2013 9:11AM
idiots!
Why use lethal force? Don't they have tranquilizer guns? Jerks! I hate that animals suffer because of people's stupidity, fear, and ignorance!
06/27/2013 9:39AM
Karma...burn in hell!!!
Here we go again...f**cops kill another dog again...I have never hated anybody in my life as I do right now...they are the real mafia and nazi of our time now...THEY KILL AND THE JUSTICE SYSTEM ALLOWS IT...the poor dog was chained where was the threat???...I am so f**fed up with all this bullshit all I can say to the owner is SUE all the f**bast...for everything they got...I hope and pray that KARMA FOLLOWS THEM FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES...AND THEY ALL BURN IN HELL...
06/27/2013 11:41AM
Murder is murder any way you look at it !!!
THIS IS APPALLING THEY ARE THE POLICE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THERE TO SERVE AND PROTECT....WHAT GIVES THEM THE RIGHT TO DO THIS..THEY ARE THERE TO UPHOLD THE LAW...THEY ARE NOT THE LAW.."JUDGE,JURY AND PROSECUTOR"... THEY SOULD BE STIPPED OF ALL THERE MEDALS...ARRESTED AND PROSECUTED WITHOUT PAY AND LOSE THERE JOB...THE POLICE DEPARTMENT SHOULD BE SUED AND HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR WHAT THEY DID...LAWS NEED TO BE CHANGED...THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THIS HAPPENED..TO THE OWNER..WHEN YOU GET A LAWYER TELL HIM OR HER ABOUT THE CASE OF THE 3 PIT BULLS THAT WERE SHOT AND KILLED BY THE POLICE...THEY WON THE CASE I THINK THEY GOT OVER A MILLION DOLLARS....RIP BABY...

It's murder, plain and simple. This officer should be removed from the force. Police Officers will only stick together, they feel its their code of honor. HOG WASH!
