Police Pack Courtroom of Cop Facing Felony Charges for Shooting & Killing Restrained Dog (InformationLiberation)
Wednesday January 23rd, 2013
Faced with the prospect that a police officer may actually be held accountable for murdering someone's dog, police are out in full force in Commerce City packing the courtroom proceedings of police officer Robert Price, who is facing felony charges for shooting and killing a dog after it was restrained. Meanwhile, protesters who showed up for the hearing were directed to the wrong courtroom!
Via the Denver Post:
BRIGHTON — An Adams County judge rescheduled an arraignment Tuesday for the Commerce City officer facing felony charges for shooting and killing a dog in November.
The hearing for Robert Price lasted about 5 minutes. His next court appearance is set for 2 p.m. April 15.
Price's name did not appear on court dockets, and initially, protesters who showed up to the hearing were directed to the wrong courtroom. When citizens found the correct room, all seats were occupied by officers who said they came to show support for Price.
Adams County Sheriff deputies escorted Price through back doors so that he could avoid the protesters and media.
Let's hope justice is served for once and this police officer is held accountable for his actions.
