    So it was acting aggressively?

    Barking at close range is not aggression, at least not violent aggression.
    indeed it is. This is something even acknowledged by the owner in the video.

    Seems the dog owner should have secured his mutt

    I don't know the full details of the arrest, hence wy I am not commenting on that. But regardless of it, it's up to the dog owner to secure his animal.

    Hell, people like that ****head are the reasons why dog attacks happen in most cases: "derp, I am going to put my dog in the car with the windows down"

    From what I found when researching the "Hawthorne police" it seems they already paid 1,000,000 dollar in a settlement for handcuffing and then physically abusing someone they arrested. And there are more reports of police misconduct in Hawthorne.

    Police Shoot Dog, gunshots caught on graphic video (NSFW)

    Here are my thoughts. I understand officers have a right to defend themselves and that this guy was being a douche.

    I also know that people can be very attached to their pets, they are like children to some.

    When officers shoot a family pet, it should always be reviewed to ensure the activity was justified and I fully support being able to sue officers deemed to have been out of line. I don't want to see a precedent where officers just shoot an animal out of convenience when other options were available.

    It looked like a horrible over-reaction...twice in the space of a minute. One, over-reacting to some verbal from the dog-owner. Whatever he said, what possible reason could there be to handcuff someone who hasn't shown the remotest resistance or violent intent. If it's standard procedure to handcuff every single arrested person, which I doubt, then it's that policy that's to blame here. Two, shooting dead the dog before it had touched anyone. Had the owner not been in unnecessary handcuffs he'd have been able to control the dog immediately.

    Those cops looked like amateurs, and dangerous ones at that.

    The dog attacked a cop.
    If you actually look at the video, the officer put his hand down at the dog while the owner was in handcuffs. EVERY dog owner knows you don't approach a dog that way.

    How about the frame where the officer put his hand towards the dog with his gun pointed at the dog prior to the leap?

    Maybe the cop in question wasn't a dog owner.
