WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO shows the moment NYPD cop shot charging pit bull in the head


A new video emerged Thursday that shows police shoot a pit bull shot in the head in the East Village on Monday.

The graphic footage, posted to the Gothamist website, shows two uniformed cops approaching the dog’s owner as he appeared to be suffering a seizure on E. 14th St. near Second Ave.

The barking dog, Star, keeps the officers at bay before he suddenly lunges off camera toward a bystander that stepped too close to his owner, a homeless man named Lech Stankiewicz, witnesses told the website.

As the two cops move in toward Stankiewicz, the dog sprints for one cop — who quickly draws his gun and fires one shot into Star’s head.

“It’s a tragedy, but I may have done the same thing that the cop did,” Johnny Rodriguez, who shot the video, told the website.

“If you got a pit bull coming at you, I don’t know if you stand there and get bit or use your gun.”

The video shows Star wiggling from spasms in the street as horrified onlookers yell at the cop who fired.

The wounded pooch was taken to an Animal Care & Control shelter on E. 110th St. in critical condition.

An agency spokesman said that Star was still in serious condition, but showing “signs of slight improvement.”

Stankiewicz — who sources said was intoxicated — was taken to Bellevue Hospital and treated for minor injuries. He was later cuffed on an arrest warrant for an open container summons, cops.

His sister said Stankiewicz, who was born in Poland, left the family’s Illinois home about a decade ago due to a drug problem.

Too bad the pit bull did not charged the liberal crowd and rip their faces off one by one.

If you yell at a cop who shot a dog that was attacking him, you voted for Obama.

The white guy at :40 was right and hit the nail on the head, "He attacked!" That's exactly correct. The "master" is on the ground seizing and dying. FIrst responders CANNOT help with a vicious dog there. Should they let the dog live and the guy DIE?? People are fucking IDIOTS! All the liberal fucks in the background boo hoo'ing for the fucking pit bull who unfortunately was protecting his owner, but not allowing anyone to HELP SAVE HIS LIFE. Unreal. People are fucking SO STUPID. No wonder why this nation is going straight down the toilet.

Sickening...

The the brain-washed liberal crowd was more concerned about the dog than the guy on the sidewalk.

Hell, they didn't care about him at all. I wonder why?

Darn good shooting tho! First rate!

Most arm-chair gunslingers don't know how hard it is to hit a moving target, let alone draw on one closing on you at that near of a distance.

I am very impressed with that officer!

I would have shot shot it again instead of let it lie there and suffer. Letting it suffer seems more cruel than shooting it for attacking.

Gee that's a tough decision.

Use your gun you idiot!

And by the way, I own dogs.

Great job by the officer. Threat IDed and dealth with in a decisive manner. None of the wishy washy hand wringing bullshit that the "my feelings got butt hurt" bystanders were crying about.

I love how the fucking idiot public thinks that there is a beat car, animal control car and an ambulance just waiting around the corner at all times to take care of their little boo boos. Fucking meat sacks need to learn to take care of themselves the police and fire depts. are not their mommy and daddies.

Love dogs. Hard video to watch. The cop did what he had to do. The dog should have been restrained by the owner but we can see where the owner was. Passed out. Why this drunk was even allowed to have a dog is beyond me. They should have fucking shot him in the head instead.

Dog was protecting his master. Caught a slug for his trouble. Sad.

Should have shot that loudmouth liberal whore in the head afterwards. Fuck. Shut the fuck up.


Pit bulls are extremely protective dogs and extremely powerful. When they're protecting their owner, noting short of a bullet is going to stop them. Same goes for a few of the other powerful breeds. German Shepards, Rotts, Huskies, etc.

People made a big stink about a dog being shot and killed when a search warrant was executed on the house on 107th and Central Park. Nevermind the fact that asshole was selling Heroin in your neighborhood, but poor Biscuit had to take a couple bullets.

Shoot the dog and go home in one piece at the end of the day.

I wish the cop would have shot the bitch with the big mouth yelling right after he took out that dog! These things are vicious killers this cop had no choice. Great shot!

You know, honestly, I think it is hard to politicize this one as "liberal v. conserative" - and too much of that narrow thinking will prevent you from seeing truth. Just an observation, related directly or indirectly to this.

The dog clearly attacked a citizen and then turned on the officer's and attacked one of them. Sure you feel bad for the dog because it was only trying to protect it's master but the police cannot stand there and get mauled by a fucking pit bull. They did the right thing... bottom line.

Remember the Lakeview Mountain Lion? Shot dead as all the kids were leaving home to walk to school. Channel 9 did a poll asking if it was justified to shoot it. 50% of this retarded town said no. 50% of Chicago said let the kids take their chances with a fucking cougar on there way to school. his city is full of fucked up morons.

Anonymous said...

The cougar that was shot in Lakeview was trying to get the fuck away from everybody. It never tried to attack anyone. And where was our infamous Animal Control? Was it possible to tranquilize this animal and get it back safely to a zoo or preserve? Fucking political hacks at animal control can never be found. Drunk drugged up politically connected whores who are always MIA when needed. Go to other states and they try to save these animals and not destroy them. As usual this is Chicago and why expect more.

Damn would have been better if it was a video of the officer shooting a rabid nigger in the head.

Mississippi Madman said...

Good shoot. And to the bitch ass liberal saying "fuckin pigs" remember that when you are getting assfucked in an alley from a gang of the niggers you fawn over. Stupid bitch.

Officer acted well within the scope of his authority. May need a higher caliber weapon though,as that dog was STILL A THREAT well after it got its dome blown off.

Reminds me of the time I put a .45 round into the head of a dog in HydePark (Chicago).

Fucking liberals were whining on the phone to the dispatcher about the "vicious" dog - I get sent the and the damn dog charges me just like in the NYPD video. Put a .45 bullet in its head and the fucking liberals go nuts.

Being the asshole I'm I tell them you shouldn't have called if you didn't expect to see the dog killed.

Oh well another CR#.

But that was the way life was back in 1973 - every damn time I set foot on HydePark it was another CR#.

They should have scooped up the guy on the sidewalk, coded it a 9-Ida and called for a napalm strike for the rest of the liberal assholes...

People care more about animals than they do fellow human beings!!! That cop had no choice. Maybe he could have used pepper spray, a taser, or a batton if he had it. However, a split second situation requires a split second decision and he did what he had to.

NOW, what if the EMTs got there before the police?? What if one of them got attacked? No gun, no weapons = they would have been attacked by the dog.

This is what I mean. The Cougar, through no fault of his own, posed a clear and present danger to human children. I choose the human children. It really has no more claim to my sympathy than the cow I ate for dinner, but is infinately more dangerous. It's tough shit for him, and yet a douchebag will take the side of a sub human beast over american citizens to young and unaware to defend against an animal that eats other animals daily. One such sympathizer actually tried to burn the Mayors house down in Michigan. Animal control doesn't have people on duty 24 hours a day to humanely deal with roving carnivours. They are as understaffed as the rest of the departments. This is why you can't let your guard down around city nitwits. They cry for help then beef on you for not tucking them in with a pillow mint. Humans 1, animals 0. That Whole foods Black Forest Bacon is awesome!

Animals don't carry weapons because they don't have thumbs, or jobs to afford weapons. They eat each other and fuck their sisters though, so I can see how some people around here can identify with them. I'll only shoot you if you try to bite me, but feel free to fuck your sister.
