Police officer shot dead after pointing stun gun at man’s dogs

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.

Killed: Robert Lasso was shot dead as he attended a domestic disturbance

‘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.
Is this justice?

    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!

    This coulda all been avoided if someone had brought me my fucking sandwich like I asked. Jk. This is a fucked up situation for everyone involved. R.I.P Lasso.

    Bravo! An American standing up for his rights. This is how it should be. Stop killing our animals.

      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.

  • James M

    Cops can kill anyone or anything they want and all they have to do is claim they feared for their life. Even if the situation obviously presented no danger to them. The rest of us lowly non law enforcement have an extremely high burden of proof to claim the same. Our lives do not matter. For some reason in this country only cops lives matter. The rest of us are just fodder.

    I don’t feel sorry for this scumbag cop… 1 less pig…

    I definitely would say no to “1st Degree Murder” maybe another charge but not 1st degree…..the person didn’t PLAN it beforehand …….

  • Dave Mack

    If his Dickhead Police Chief George Bruneio hadn’t ordered the dogs to be shot, maybe his officer may still be living, Live with the consequences Chief, as I’m sure he’ll get an appeal for 1st degree murder reduced too 2nd, as they do insist at throwing the book when it fucking suits them wankers ‹(•¿•)›
