AUSTIN -- Since an Austin Police Department officer fatally shot a seven-year-old blue heeler named Cisco, the phones haven't stopped ringing at APD. The department has received hundreds of emails with comments such as, "Get that officer off the street," and "Do police no longer have a protocol for escalating to deadly force?" Another email says, "Shoot a man's dog here in Texas and you'll have a storm at your door." "I'm just overwhelmed at the responses we've gotten," said Cisco's owner Michael Paxton.
