On May 10th, 2011 at around 2pm my puppy who's 9 months old got out of my house by accident and ran out to play with a hose being used by guys who were working on the LIRR railroad wall.
My mother ran right behind the dog and one of the workers was going to try and help my mother grab the dog who in no way was trying to attack anyone and one of the other workers blasted the dog in the face with a pressure water hose they are using to cut and clean concrete. My dog received multiple lacerations on his face and his eye was cut open.
I called the NYPD precinct 110 and they sent unit 3022. When they arrived I expected them to at least make a report. They arrived on the scene and didn't even bother getting out of their car.
They asked me to come over and I explained the situation to them and they said, "We are not going to do a report on this. Best you can do is sue them (the contracting company)." One of the officers even said, "If it was me, I woulda shot the dog." Why would you shoot an animal who wasn't trying to attack anyone and was just playing with a hose? Would he shoot me too if I was on the street playing with a hose?
I called for help and a report so I could have some proof if I did have to go to court. I was outraged that they couldn't care less about the situation. Shortly after they just left without saying a word.
I took pictures of their car as proof that they did nothing to help me. Attached are pictures of the scene. It's like why even have a police department if they refuse to help us when we need help? - Edwin
