Cops Break Into Mother’s House Without Warrant, Kill Her Pet Parakeet and Beat Her Children

STATEN ISLAND — Evelyn Lugo, a 57-yr-old mother in Staten Island, is devastated after police officers broke into her house without a warrant, beat up her children, and murdered her pet parakeet, according to the lawsuit.

Evelyn’s bird, Tito, was a small parakeet that clearly posed no danger to the officers.

“It was a blue and green bird. It was really pretty,” said Anna, Evelyn’s daughter.

At some point during the break-in, officers caused Tito’s cage to fall off of a dresser and crash onto the floor, according to court records.





“I screamed, ‘The bird!’ said Anna.

That’s when police said “Fuck your bird!” and began crushing and stomping the parakeet to death, according to reports.

“I was shocked,” said Anna.

“The cops don’t even care about us humans, they don’t care about the bird either, ” Anna said.


It all started when the Evelyn was having a labor day celebration with her children.

Her son, Edwin, was taking out the trash when police approached him randomly on the street.

According to reports, they stopped him and began interrogating him about a cone that was placed in front of the family home to save a space for parking.

Though Edwin had committed no crime, officers demanded that he present his identification immediately.

Edwin respectfully refused, informing the officers that he hadn’t done anything wrong.





That’s when one of the officers began initiating violent force against Edwin, as the other officers watched, according to reports.

The officer apparently had a grip around Edwin’s arm, attempting to restrain him.

Frightened, Edwin broke free from the officer and ran back to his family inside the home, according to court documents.

But the officers weren’t finished.

Reports say they then approached the home and began shattering windows.

After smashing the windows they barged in the house.





“It was completely uncalled for and there was no excuse for entering the home without a warrant,” said Evelyn’s lawyer.

“They threw me like a piece of garbage onto the floor,” Evelyn said.

George, one of Evelyn’s sons, suffered particularly gruesome injuries after one of the officers began repeatedly bashing in his head and face with a baton, according to court records.

Alba, Evelyn’s daughter, suffered from asthma and almost suffocated to death after officers shot her with pepper spray.

Cops then made “criminal” charges against the family. Those have now been dropped, as the family sues for unlawful search and seizure, excessive force, and malicious prosecution.

But the trauma done to the family will never be reversed.

“Ever since then I have been sick and depressed,” said Evelyn, adding, “I am hurt on the inside, in my heart.

    How does someone fear for their life because of a parakeet? Did it chirp and flutter in a threatening manner?

    They should be criminally charged the fullest extent of the law for the crimes are committed. They should also be charged with violation of rights on the color of law, federal offenses. The moment they touch the boy there were no longer acting as law-enforcement officers what criminals. They would come to my house like that there would have been many body bags needed!

    Going to the house like that without a warrant without just cause was no less than breaking in entering or home invasion.
