On December 13th 2014, Fresno Police Officers killed a family’s pet dog, after profiling a 19-year-old and his friend. Felicia Rodriguez told Cop Block Fresno that her teenage son and his friend were wrongfully detained at gunpoint while standing in front of their own home.

Responding to shots fired somewhere in the neighborhood, F.P.D. detained the boys, opening a gate to do so, and letting the families pet dog, Eazy, out of the yard. When Eazy walked out of the open gate, he came in contact with a K9 officer and did what playful dogs do. The K9’s handler shot Eazy five times, killing him in front of his family that adored the companion for seven years.

Rodriguez writes: “He didn’t charge or attack the dog nor any officers. He was never trained to be that way and he did nothing but be loveable and playful with anyone he came in contact with. While my son was detained, he had to watch helplessly while as they murdered his best friend in cold blood. “

While the teenagers were witnessing the murder of their four-legged friend from the back seats of police cars, Fresno police officers ransacked the home without consent or a search warrant. After no guns were found in the house, the boys were free to go and the police left the scene, leaving the family traumatized.

“…and to add insult to injury, they ADMITTED to us they had the WRONG ADDRESS… and because of their negligence, our beloved Eazy had to pay with his life. This has turned our world upside down. My 19 year old is scarred for life, my 10 year old is deeply heartbroken over the loss of his companion too.”

F.P.D. told Felicia Rodriguez the dog “charged officers”, but the family insists the dog was friendly and wanted to play.

The family is demanding justice for their murdered loved one via Facebook on the page “Justice for Eazy”.

From Justice for Eazy on Facebook:
“A police officer is no better than those of us not in uniform when committing such a horrendous act.”

“The FPD should be held accountable for their actions. The Fresno Police Department has a shameful history of police brutality, unnecessarily shooting people and dogs and not being held accountable.”

The Fresno Police Department has declined to respond to my inquiry into this incident. I have since sent a CPRA request (California Records Request Act); Cop Block Fresno will continue to cover this story as it develops.

  1. Isn’t ransacking the house without a warrant some kind of…oh I don’t know…CRIME? Pretty clear they were looking for something to charge the kid with to justify their screwup. Hope the family gets a lawyer and quick.

    1. They were giving consent to search the house.

      1. But of course they left that part out.

        1. And of course you left out the link to “prove” they did, you certainly don’t believe everything on the internet so I felt it good to use prove in scare quotes.

          One thing I’ll give CS, when the info isn’t in the story and the story has only self-referential links, he supplies his.

        2. But you somehow know it anyway? Tell us of your powers!

  2. Hod rats dog gets shot, there word verse everyone else, why am I surprised this is on copblock

      1. dude your such a piece of shit troll badge licking queer

  3. It was a pit-bull and they let it out. I’m sure there was a lot more to the story than what was posted.

      1. Oh my god your right because every thing you read on the internet is 100% true, retard

        1. Settle down fella, Just pointing out that the story said the cops opened it, am I only to believe the version in
          On the Internet if it’s the cops version?

          1. Yep. Idolatry has it’s requirements.

          2. Thenumber6 and JC are CopBlock trolls, WD.

            They don’t want debate or conversation or to add anything of substance to the story.

            They want to piss you off in hopes you will leave and never come back.

          3. Oh I know, but they won’t scare me away, and I’ll still respond to them, I like that they are here, it shows the only opposition is a handful of ignorant cop boot lickers posting the same played out rubbish on every article or video put up.

          4. Two of them claim to be active and retired LEO’s. I doubt it, though, because a few others have threatened them and they’ve done nothing about it.

    1. you need a bitch slap , i watch your shit and would love to slap you

      1. Why don’t you come find me and try.

        1. How? You lie through your ass about where you live.

        2. I would but you hide like a pussy , you badge licker

  4. Wasn’t my house. Cop would have been killed instantly. Plain and Simple. You don’t fuck around with some people in this world. I am definitely one of those people. I don’t care if I die as long as I can take one of those fucking pricks with me. Plain and Simple.

    1. I have armed myself at 66 years old just to make sure no cop THINKS he will get away with touching one of my dogs. We will die together because he will go down FIRST.

  5. I find nothing other than the original posting/FB page. Its only one side. Perhaps more info will be available after the records request.

  6. From Justice for Eazy on Facebook:
    “A police officer is no better than those of us not in uniform when committing such a horrendous act.”
    “The
    FPD should be held accountable for their actions. The Fresno Police
    Department has a shameful history of police brutality, unnecessarily
    shooting people and dogs and not being held accountable.”

    I truly believe they should be held accountable and this police department should be sued for the death of the pet dog and for ransacking the house and traumatizing the entire family over their mistake. The only way we can stop the injustices done by these cops in this country is to hold them accountable, make them pay and they should be serving time in jail for crimes done while serving the community.

  7. SUE THE CITY.. SUE SUE SUE.. FIND A LAWYER WHO HATES COPS AND LOVES DOGS AND HE/SHE WILL BE HAPPY TO TAKE THE CASE. If the cities and departments don’t feel it in their budget.. big time!!!…. they will keep hiring morons and cowards.
