    Here's a screen shot from the un-propagandized video showing the dog in mid-leap as it lunged at the cop:

    Why isn't tazing or pepper spray an option first when it comes to dogs in this situation? Does that not work?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I absolutely love dogs, all dogs, but I have to say that the owner of the dog is negligent here. His dog was not properly under control, either by him or by someone else. Why did he put the dog in the car if his dog "wouldn't hurt anyone or act aggressive"? If it had been me with my dog, I would have just stayed on the street and found out what the officers wanted - police don't just go up to people and arrest them for no reason. And after putting the dog in the car, why didn't he roll up the windows to ensure the dog stayed inside?

    I've seen the result of Rott attacks on children, other dogs, and even adults at times and it's not pretty, although they are generally very gentle dogs - they are fiercely protective and loyal too - I'm sure the police have dealt with dog attacks in the past and aren't taking unnecessary chances with strange dogs.

    There has to be far more to the story than what we see in this video. Police don't leave a "takedown" just to harrass and arrest an innocent man with a dog. Something doesn't seem right here and a poor animal has suffered because of it.

    Pepper spray does not work on a dog, it would only piss it off even more, and tazing could kill the dog anyway. Also a tazer only immobilizes the target for a moment. The dog, if it survived, would get back up and resume it's attack with vigor.

    If you (general you, not you personally) are a cop, and you think that what what man was doing was "a threat", you need to take off your badge, hang up your uniform, and go get a job where a weak and cowardly little vagina of a man can flourish.

    I don't know all the details here so I'm not saying that the police weren't completely justified in hemming that dude up.

    But if they were, it wasn't because he was "a threat".

    Yes, that's very illegal. This man's behavior, in distracting the police, could be seen as interfering and/or harassment.

    Whether a person is 'obstructing, hindering, or delaying the officer' is up to the perception of the officer, not the person recording. Cops may well have safety concerns that are not immediately obvious to the amateur cameraman. We don't know that the dog's owner was actually arrested or charged with anything. OP's article clams such but where is the proof? For all we know the man was released without any charge.

    So? The dog lunged, that's enough to demonstrate the dog's intent and to kill it. You don't need to wait until you're injured to fire because the whole point is to prevent you from sustaining any injury in the first place.

    But if not for the unreasonable arrest there would have never been a reason to shoot that dog.

    What isn't being reported is how the dog's owner has issues with the Hawthorne Police for a very long time.



    Apparently this isn't the first time that Rosby has had issues with the local police. His prior record includes convictions for resisting arrest, battery and driving under the influence. Rosby, a black man, has filed six complaints alleging mistreatment and racial profiling by the Hawthorn Police.

    I haven't seen the video, so I don't have an opinion yet. But there have been numerous incidents of police shootings dogs unnecessarily. Police need more training on how to handle dogs and/or they should call the Animal Control department to deal with it. They routinely deal with aggravated dogs without shooting them.
