    And all of his actions were OUTSIDE of a perimeter. Cops choose the perimeter. You can do whatever the **** you want if you are outside of it. To say this guy did anything illegal shows you don't know the law.

    Boston and Mass State policy didn't shoot or arrest TV reporters, Cameramen or anyone else who impeding the search.

    Good for you.. but would you leave an animal to suffer? Most human people would just ended for the animal. They didn't.

    It's funny to see the same type of people in here defending the reckless life-taking actions of police officers that you see in the threads concerning abusive governmental actions against us. Good job people, keep defending outrageous uses of force. Keep up the good work.

    And cops get training in these situations so that's a bs line. Shooting an animal (dog in this case) is a save your life situation as in the dog has a hold of you and at no point did that happen here.

    The dog owner, Leon Rosby, was taking video of police officers in Hawthorne, Calif. as they barricaded a house, CBS reports.

    Another bystander behind Rosby was recording him, and can be heard saying that Rosby asked the police why there weren't any black cops present. This drew the attention of two Hawthorne police officers, who started to approach Rosby.

    Rosby can then be seen putting his dog, which looks like a Rottweiler, into his car and voluntarily putting his hands behind his back to be arrested. As he was being handcuffed by the officers, the dog started barking and jumped out of the car.

    As the dog approached the officers, barking, the police shot the dog several times. Police said they had no choice but to shoot as the dog lunged towards them.

    Police Shoot Dog, Gunshots Caught On Graphic Video (NSFW, UPDATES)


    I am confused, the man posed no threat to the officers, he only filmed them and made a comment from a considerable distance, was not interfering with the crime-scene or the duties of the officers and yet he was arrested and put into handcuffs.

    Then they start (from what it appears) manhandling the arrested man (searching pockets I think but pretty heavy handed for someone who poses no threat and has cooperated with the arrest) which leads to his dog jumping out of the car in defense of it's owner and then they shoot the dog.

    Now the dog might have been a threat, but if they had just sent the man on his way with a warning, not cuffed and manhandled him the dog would not have come to his defense and this would not have been necessary. More bad press for the police and it is for the biggest part all their own fault for handing this situation way too aggressively when this was not called for.
    Another example of overzealous police officers going after peaceful citizens. Unfortunately, this one led to the death of an innocent animal. Cowards!

    Even the Police Department has stated it was FEAR that was behind shooting the dog. Cops fear alot of things, like does someone have a gun in the house. Does that give cops right to shoot people because they are unarmed?

    The music from his car and his words were both traveling inside the parimiter.

    If you were the one who was facing an armed robber in your home would you want someone distracting the police?

    He was arrested for filming a crime scene though he was behind barricades. Should not be a crime. And, of course, it isn't when cops do it themselves...

    Hypocrites.

    You don't have to wait for the dog to get ahold of you. You can shoot it before hand. I know because I shot a dog that was about to attack me and went though the legal motions.

    So what? it was outside the perimeter. The law doesn't prevent someone from talking or playing music. You can't ban sound.

    Then ask him to leave nicely, if he does not.. then you can arrest him. did they do that? Nope. But that man put his dog in the car which shows he wasn't being an issue.
