Cop is sorry for loss of dogs

Well if anyone read my post yesterday I had an article about a drug raid where two dogs where killed. Yes DEA is on tonight for 2 hours and maybe I'll get to catch it not really sure. The thing is though what if some breaks down a door and they don't find any drugs or they kill dogs who aren't really a threat. Well here is the other side to the story where the cop is sorry he had to kill the two dogs. Hopefully someone finds it interesting.



"I made a decision in a split second to kill both dogs, and I've got to tell you, I don't feel good about that." Detective Sgt. Daniel Rinaldo

Updated: 03/31/09 09:34 AM
For police, killing of dogs was safety issue
2 were ready to attack in raid, detective says, but residents say their animals were fleeing
By Lou Michel
NEWS STAFF REPORTER




In a split second, Detective Sgt. Daniel Rinaldo decided he had to kill two dogs that appeared ready to attack during a police drug raid Saturday, despite assertions to the contrary from residents of the South Buffalo home where the raid occurred.

Rinaldo, in a news conference Monday, explained that he felt terrible about shooting the dogs but that the safety of him and other officers outweighed sparing the animals.

He disputed contentions by Rita Patterson, 27, and her father, Daniel, 68, who said the family pit bull terrier and pit bull-boxer mix were trying to get away from SWAT team members who burst into the house about dinnertime.

"It's an absolute lie," Rinaldo said.

"The situation was regrettable, but there was nothing I could do. The dogs were initially startled and went back on their hind legs and began barking and advancing toward me. I made a decision in a split second to kill both dogs, and I've got to tell you, I don't feel good about that."

Growing emotional, Rinaldo added that he has been a police officer 26 years and has owned two dogs, both strays he took home after finding them on the East Side.

Rinaldo said that police brass regularly urge the SWAT team to find less lethal alternatives for dealing with dogs during raids but that the consensus among similar-sized police departments is that there is no alternative. He said he has no recollection of Daniel Patterson's pleading with officers to allow him to put the dogs in another room, as the man contends.

"Keep in mind, this is happening in seconds, and the alternative was for me to get bit, and there would be mass confusion in this house," Rinaldo said.

The raid was one of nine conducted as part of an operation targeting gangs, guns and drug dealers in Kaisertown and South Buffalo. Police said they arrested 11 people, confiscated 10 ounces of cocaine and crack cocaine, a .38-caliber handgun and $1,300.

During a six-month investigation, undercover police and confidential informants made purchases of illegal drugs at the locations, including the Indian Church Road residence in South Buffalo, officers said.

"Drugs were purchased at that location based upon complaints of prescription drugs. After the SWAT team executed the search warrant, prescription drugs were found at that location. The reason arrests weren't made [was] they were legally prescribed to someone at that location," said Lt. Paul R. Delano, a Narcotics Squad supervisor. "Put 2 and 2 together: Somebody's selling drugs out of that location."

The prescription drug illegally sold was hydrocodone, police said.

"Some of the houses were doing as much as $5,000 a day in drug sales for at least a six-month period," Mayor Byron W. Brown said.

Both the mayor and Police Commissioner H. McCarthy Gipson expressed support for Rinaldo and the overall conduct of the SWAT team. Gipson said sprays and other alternatives to shooting dogs have proved insufficient in halting dogs from attacks during raids.

Dogs kept at drug houses, Delano said, are not pets in the traditional sense, but rather "tools" used by drug dealers.

About a week ago, when a search warrant was being carried out on the East Side, police encountered seven dogs. One of the dogs was beside a toddler, and police were delayed long enough that a suspect they would normally have captured had time to jump out a rear second-floor window and escape, the lieutenant said.

Police said that in the last two years, more than 2,000 search warrants have been carried out and that on numerous occasions officers will try to avoid shooting dogs kept by drug dealers. Rinaldo, who serves as a Homicide Squad supervisor, said SWAT members often try to scare dogs and lock them in a closet or bathroom.

"I own three dogs myself, and in raids, it's a horrible thing," Delano said of dogs that are killed. "The blame needs to be placed on the owners."

As for the South Buffalo raid, Delano said that a day later, Sunday, William F. Hanavan, 32, the boyfriend of Rita Patterson, was charged with assault after attacking a neighbor whom Hanavan blamed for the raid. "He was trying to find out who was our confidential informant," Delano said.

Hanavan, 32, of Duerstein Street, was at the Patterson home during the raid but was not charged. Hanavan's parole from a drug conviction ended March 2, according to the State Division of Parole.

The Amherst and East Aurora police departments, state police and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration assisted city officers with Saturday's raids.

Those arrested Saturday were: William Robinson, 19, and Brittaney Slisz, 18, both of Gorski Street; Ronald Frida, 24, Johnny Nelson, 23, and Timilla Taylor, 18, all of Norman Avenue; Daniel Birkmeyer, 22, of Barnard Street; Curtis Clemons, 21, of Cambridge Avenue; Nelson Rodriguez, 18, of Genesee Street; Anwar Jackson, 17, of Olsen Street; Bryan Slisz, 44, of Weiss Street; and Kadeem McWilliams, 19, of Weimar Street. Police said the charges are all drug-related but did not provide specific charges.

Gipson said two men remain at large: Anthony Cameron, 28, and Paul Tucker, 19. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the police confidential tip line at 847-2255.

Dogs victims of drug war



The link goes to an article about cops killing dogs in a drug raid well kinda a drug raid. Yes it is cool to see on DEA (2 hour season Finale this week on Spike TV) where they come in and bust in door and draw guns and secure a house. Hey they are after the bad guys. But what about when you aren't the drug dealer. What about when the dogs are friendly and Not attack dogs. Hey when you come through that door how can you decide on what the dog will do? This is again another problem with the drug war, is some times the people who get hurt aren't the dealers. Here is an interesting buffalo news article.

Police shoot, kill two dogs during raid
Family says animals did not pose a threat
By Aaron Besecker
NEWS STAFF REPORTER


A South Buffalo family wants answers after police shot and killed two of their dogs during a raid Saturday, leaving blood puddled on a living-room carpet and speckled on the wall.

Police, who were looking for a drug suspect and narcotics, left the Indian Church Road home without finding any evidence or arresting anyone, according to residents of the house.

The incident has left the family distraught and angry over the loss of the dogs, Essy and Moosey.

"It was just the most traumatizing, horrible thing," said Rita M. Patterson, 27, who lives in the house with her 68-year-old father, Daniel J. Patterson.

Rita Patterson's boyfriend, William F. Hanavan, 32, paroled last year after serving eight months in prison on a drug charge, was home but was not taken into custody Saturday.

However, Hanavan was arrested on a felony assault charge Sunday afternoon, Buffalo police reported.

When police stormed the house on Indian Church Road, near Seneca Street, at about 5:30 p. m. Saturday, Daniel Patterson was on the couch, watching the news.

"They shot the dogs for no reason at all," he told The Buffalo News on Sunday.

Rita Patterson said she was cooking dinner in the kitchen when she heard loud noises at the side door. Hanavan was upstairs taking a nap, and at first she thought he may have fallen out of bed.

Before she knew what was happening, police wearing masks and helmets and carrying automatic weapons had broken through the door. They tied her hands with a zip tie and put her on the floor.

Her father pleaded with police not to shoot the dogs, but they wouldn't allow him to grab the dogs and put them in another room, Patterson said.

One of the officers started firing a shotgun at the two dogs, one a pit bull and the other a pit bull-boxer mix.

One of the dogs was shot three times: once in the throat, once in the back and the last time in the leg while trying to run away, Rita Patterson said.

The other dog was cowering behind a table. Neither was a threat to the police, the residents said.

The police had a warrant for the home, but it named no suspects. It said only that investigators were looking for a white male and Hydrocodone. Information that led to the warrant, according to the warrant itself, came partly from an informant, Rita Patterson said.

Hanavan was paroled in February 2008 after he served more than eight months of a one-to three-year sentence for fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony.

Hanavan was arrested Sunday following an assault at about 3:30 p. m. on Indian Church Road near the site of the raid.

Hanavan and a second suspect are accused of pinning down a man and punching and kicking him repeatedly, said Buffalo police spokesman Michael J. DeGeorge. The man suffered numerous injuries and was taken to Mercy Hospital.

It's not known how or if the incident is connected to the previous day's raid, DeGeorge said.

Police did have a warrant for the address, DeGeorge said, though he would not comment on who the target may have been or what police were looking for.

"It's part of an ongoing undercover operation," DeGeorge said.

Rita Patterson said she will be talking with a lawyer today.

"There's not even a word to describe the pain I feel," she said.

DeGeorge, the police spokesman, said the Pattersons have a right to request an investigation through the department's Professional Standards Division.

DeGeorge did point to the inherent danger police generally face when raiding a home.

"Executing a search warrant, police never know what they're going to find on the other side of that door," DeGeorge said. "In most cases, these can be life and death situations."

News Staff Reporter Stephen T. Watson contributed to this report.

Bandits lost

Yes I did have a good time at the Bandits game, even though they lost. Since they are played the Titans who are in the same what ever you call that it is an important game, I guess the teams are pretty tight. With out being a sports writer I would say the Bandits played better then New York and at least sure out shot them but sometimes that just isn't enough you need goals. Well here are some pictures from the game.

After the game they played the Sabres on the big screen and people could stay and watch, I headed home. Before the game though I took some downtown shots. I didn't see any of the Tea Party protest thingy though.

Vancouvers Drug Promblem?



So Hopefully that link leads to an interesting story about drugs in Vancouver . I would really like to read a follow up about the BC Bud, but I'm guessing there won't be one about that, it just gets a quick mention. The other day on Facebook I mentioned that I like the show DEA. I think there is a Marathon from about 1pm to 8pm on spike TV. It is a pretty good show. I also said that I don't agree with the drug war. I figured out why I like the show. First of all it is pretty good. Second of all since drugs are illegal there is all this crime and gangs and all the nasty stuff that goes along with things in the street. If you want to kill people over drugs then you should go to Jail and that is why I think the DEA is good. But on the other hand I think the drug war is wrong and drugs should be made legal. I think it would take a lot of the crime out of it and make a lot of people much safer and then you get tax money. In any event for those that don't like to follow links here is the article.


Guns seized by police in Vancouver, Canada, were displayed during a news conference about the city's rising crime rate.
Associated Press

03/29/09 06:35 AM
Increased crime plagues Vancouver
Drugs are source of the problem at 2010 Games site
By Jeremy Hainsworth
ASSOCIATED PRESS
Story tools:


VANCOUVER, British Columbia - With its spectacular bay and stunning, snowcapped peaks, Vancouver ranks as one of the world's most beautiful cities. But in recent months, the people of Canada's Olympic city have been living in fear.

As Vancouver prepares to host the 2010 Winter Games, its crime rate is going up. Since January, there have been 45 shootings in the region, 17 of them fatal. There were 58 homicides last year in this region of 2.7 million people, up from 41 the year before, according to the regional Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.

"It's terrifying," said Doris Luong, who lives near the scene of a March 10 double homicide. "This used to be the best city in the world. . . . I fear for my children."

At a nearby elementary school, pupils' movements were immediately restricted as word of the killings spread.

The root of the problem seems to be drugs, or rather a shortage of them.

The Mexican cocaine supply line extends through the United States, especially Los Angeles, up to Vancouver, according to Royal Canadian Mounted Police Superintendent Pat Fogarty.

But the Mexican government of President Felipe Calderon has mobilized 45,000 soldiers and 5,000 federal police to curb drug cartel activity. That has driven up the price of cocaine in Vancouver from $23,300 per kilogram to almost $39,000, Fogarty said, and gangs are killing each other.

"People are nervous . . . and so are the police," said Fogarty, head of the regional gang task force. "The public's outraged. The government's outraged."

Vancouver social activist Jamie Lee Hamilton, who lives in Vancouver's seedy Downtown Eastside, said she no longer has much faith in the justice system.

"I'm really apprehensive about going out in the evening," Hamilton said. "We've turned into an American city."

Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan recently called Vancouver the country's gang capital and said the violence is the worst in Canada.

Canada's largest city, Toronto, has seen only 11 homicides this year in a population of 5.1 million, almost double that of the Vancouver region.

On a visit to Vancouver earlier this month where he met with family members of victims, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper proposed a new law that would label gang killings as first-degree murder with a prison sentence of at least 25 years and no parole. The law would also create a new offense with a minimum four-year jail term for drive-by shootings.

Harper has said people planning to attend the Winter Games should not worry about violence, since 15,000 police officers, private security and military personnel are expected to provide security.

Local authorities say they have stepped up actions to curb the gangs and their violence. Police announced the arrests of 10 gang members recently, and four more were arrested on drug and weapon offenses earlier this month.

Police Chief Jim Chu acknowledged the city is in the middle of a "brutal" gang war and said the strategy is to detain gang members on as many charges as possible. However, some of those arrested are being released on bail by the courts.

Mayor Gregor Robertson has said police are fighting a losing battle.

Vancouver may in part be paying the price for some of the very features that help make it so attractive. Rob Gordon, director of the criminology school at British Columbia's Simon Fraser University, noted that the city has a laid-back attitude, easy access to the U. S. border and a vast backcountry with a climate ripe for growing potent marijuana. Police say British Columbia marijuana, known as B. C. bud, is often traded for cocaine, and Vancouver is known for marijuana growing operations.

Day OFF and black

So I feel as if lately I really haven't had much to say. Yes I have done picture posts and put up some articles about drugs and about how I'm not for the war on drugs and stuff like that, but It still seems like I haven't had anything to say really. So I thought I would post about how I get to sleep in for once. I have a much needed day off. I all ready see that I need to go to a Walgreen's that isn't near me to get my pictures done. I may go to Radio Shack and buy a card reader. As long as I keep things low key I will be happy. Then I will be going to see Lewis Black at Shea's. He is pretty funny and I hope it is a great show, I'm sure it will be. I still don't know what to do about dinner though I really don't. On a side note I'm looking at this mail from Royalcaribbean and there is a cruise I might be able to go on, with tax return money if I ever file. But I don't have a passport so that is kinda out, oh well. On another side note there is a new South Park on tonight, maybe I'll still be up when it is on. Well maybe if I do a review of Lewis Black it will be more exciting then this, I know it will at least be like not as dull.

Oz Chong Yuma

So it was very nice to be able to sleep in on a Friday. I don't think he is but if my boss where to read my blog then thanks. I didn't really have any plans other then to sleep in and then going to The Wizard of Oz. Last week sometime there was a review of it that only gave it 1.5 stars, so I didn't read it, I didn't want to know anything about what was going to go on or have a bad review effect by view of the play/musical . I'm not sure if it would have effected it or not but I didn't want to take the chance. I did feel bad for Shea's because I thought if people read that they might not buy tickets. The last review of something I saw I didn't agree with. The reason is that they compared the show to the same show someplace else. Well if you have a Broadway cast of course the Buffalo won't be as good, because see if they where then most likely they would be on Broadway. The last one I saw was still very good.

Yes they did have pretty Ladies selling Wizard of Oz stuff, I bought a T-shirt and Magnet and thought about Toto but passed. So as I walked in to the seating area it was pretty cool there was someone playing and old looking organ. I don't remember all the songs but there where a couple Beatles songs, looked like it was a young kid. I have to admit that the Wizard of Oz is a weird movie, on its own. But it is very good. But in Musical Form it gets even weirder, but in a good way. I think that as long as you understand that then the Play would be fine. I don't know enough about the arts to know if it is a play or a musical. I think it is a play my self. The reason I say that the way they talk is with talking and not songs. The songs are only the songs in the movie. That was one of things that worried me would they make talking into songs and they didn't. I said how things where kinda weird but in a good way. With the exception of Toto every thing was played by people. The scene where they sleep in the flowers was a popie seed dance scene (but you still knew what was going on), the flying monkey was played by people (cool out fits by the way), The crows where very creepy. Now the munchkins had all sorts of outfits but some of them where taller then Dorothy. That makes sense, yes you can have some kids but where do you get real munchkins these days. Yes there where some pyro and effects. Yes there where parts that where funny. All in all it was very good, everyone should go see it. Well that assumes you like the wizard of Oz. That being said I should mention that is the first play I have seen that uses video. Yes they had two screens that I could see. When things start out there is a house set and then in the background the have the land and moving trees on the screen as a background. They also do this at the end of the show when they look at a wind mill. When the two screens are the most import is when the twister comes. Dorothy is in the house and you see the storm around her and it really looks pretty cool. You see the old lady go by on the video screen and a bolt of lighting turns her into the witch. I like the use of video, to me it is new but maybe it has been going on for a long time and I just haven't seen a production that uses it. I thought it was very good. Oh if you have seen Wicked forget about for one night and enjoy this and then after the fact combine the stories. Since I bought stuff I didn't go to Diablo it would have been a great time. Sometimes I wish I lived downtown could have dropped the stuff off at my place and then gone over there, but I don't so.........

a/k/a Tommy Chong. Is a movie I have wanted to see for some time. I missed it when it was first on Showtime. I watched it on Sho On Demand yesterday. I found it pretty interesting. You do find some stuff out about him I had no idea of. It isn't only about his arrest for selling bongs over the internet, but that is what the story mainly focuses on. It is a documentary and does star him. Some times it doesn't. It also has footage of him doing some stand up, that is pretty good. Of course it does get into politics. Hey how can it not he got arrested not for weed but for selling bongs over the internet to the DEA, it is pretty interesting.

The other movie I watched was also on showtime. 3:10 to Yuma. For those of you who know about movies yes it is a remake of a very old movie. I never saw the original so I can't say if the story is the same. Yes it is a western so you have lots of shooting and that kind of thing. But it isn't only that. Yes Russell Crowe is in it and he has great dialog. Batman I mean Christan Bale is in it also, and other people who I know there face but not there name. I thought the acting was pretty good my self. There is a twist that well I would call it maybe a double reveal towards the end that I won't give away. The general story is this. Bale owes people money, it is post civil war in AZ. The Railroad wants his land. He and his family are out and about when they witness the tail end of a stage coach robbery (that entire scene was so good and so violent with lots of shooting). Bale's live stock get used by Crowe so he lets him have it back and takes the family horses. Eventually it turns out that they catch Crowe in town and they need another man to help get him to this town where he will catch the 3:10 to Yuma (it is a prison where he will be hung). From there more chaos takes place and fight scenes and his gang tries to rescue him. I think it is pretty good. There are some bible references in the movie to. I like that the bad guy can " " it that is kinda a cool touch. All in all a great movie with a different kind of story line, where "The Good Guy" isn't really the Hero and where "The Bad Guy" doesn't just kill everyone. I say two thumbs up or maybe 3 out of 4 stars.

Hope everyone has a great weeked!!!!!!!!!!

A Bronx Dream

So Hope everyone had a great St. Pat's and Hope you continue it at (e:Matthew)'s Party on Saturday Night. Last night on Showtime I watched an interesting Documentary called "A Bronx Dream". It is about a Public School where they Teach Irish Dance. At first you might think why would blacks and latinos like Irish dance. The next thought would be, well people who aren't black take African Dance, and dances from other parts of the world so then it makes sense. That point is never even mentioned in the movie. One of the reasons is that it is a multicultural area. Well back to the show. If I understood how the program started was the teacher was a music teacher and she had a river dance or one of those types of posters and a kid asked what it was, so she showed them some steps. This teacher not only taught them dances but music and how to say things in Gaelic. The Show also followed them over to Ireland where they dance for the president of Ireland. The show also showed some of the families. I found it interesting. Oh yeah the kids where pretty good also, even if other people made fun of them (one boy was also into sports).

2009 St. Pats Part 2

So since today is the Holiday Happy St. Patrick's day. Before I get to the events of the day I'm not your Normal Irish Guy. That is right, I don't like Corned Beef or really any kind of meat that has that same kind of taste to it. I don't like Cabage. I don't really like Irish Music. That being said when it is used in Rock for bands like Flogging Molly and Jackdaw and a Couple other famous covers it is pretty good. St. Patrick sent out the snakes. But Guess what I like Snakes. I'm not saying I want to pick them up and Pet them but snake skin looks really nice on them not as like boots, but the fake stuff on sneakers is cool. I know well enough to stay away from snakes since I don't know what ones will kill you or at least try to. In my Basketball days I was a Lakers not a Celtics Fan. But I liked House of Pain. I liked the show The Black Donnolly's that was pretty good. I don't like Beer. But I really do like Potatoes , yum.

Ok so if you read my previous post I left off with pictures during the Parade. Here are some more of them.

So then After the Parade it was over to (e:PMT)'s. I can only say what I was a party to. Lets see there where horses out side, wrestling, going up on the roof, hanging out, (e:terry) passing out and getting drawn on, relaxing out side in the sun. I think that about sums it up Here are the pictures of those things. Oh yeah and the food was pretty good, thanks.

I just wanted to add that it was a nice little (e:peep) gathering that turned out pretty well I think. Oh there is one funny thing I forgot about but if you see the picture you will notice someone pulled up and blocked the drive way to drop a kid off at the church as we where all sitting out side in front of the house, how strange. Hope everyone has(d) a nice Holiday, and again thanks (e:pmt) .
