AKilled: Robert Lasso was shot dead as he attended a domestic disturbanceccording to the Daily Mail, a police officer killed while responding to a domestic disturbance in a small eastern Pennsylvania borough had pointed a stun gun at two dogs before being shot, court records reveal.

Freemansburg police officer Robert Lasso had pointed at the attacking dogs when the homeowner pulled out a shotgun and fired the fatal blast on Thursday evening.

In police custody, the alleged gunman, 46-year-old George Hitcho Jr, said he had told Mr Lasso to get off his property and not come on unless he had a warrant, authorities said.

‘He tried to kill my dogs and pointed a gun in my face,’ Hitcho said, according to the documents. ‘I do not care if you a cop or not …Unbelievable.’

The officer had been responding to a report of a disturbance and ended up at the back of Hitcho’s house, authorities said.

Since this case has been tried, a jury of nine women and three men only needed about a half hour of deliberations to find George Hitcho Jr. guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Freemansburg police officer Robert Lasso.

    The man who shot the cop should have been awarded a medal and a parade held in his honor as the cop was a fucking piece of shit and he deserves to be dead!

      Except… he was found guilty for first degree murder. That is not ok. The police are out of control and we go to prison for defending ourselves.
