Under certain conditions things can spiral out of control, and that appears to have been the case recently in Hawthorne, Calif., where police shot and killed a suspect’s dog in front of him, as he was being arrested on a misdemeanor.
According to Britain’s Daily Mail, 52-year-old Hawthorne resident Leon Rosby was walking his pet dog, a Rottweiler, recently while videotaping police at a crime scene, when officers noticed what he was doing and ordered him to stop. In an interview with the Daily Breeze, a local L.A.-area newspaper, Rosby said he was taping the scene “to make sure nobody’s civil rights were being violated.”
‘I do apologize if I didn’t immediately comply’
In a video of the incident shot by a cell phone, Rosby is eventually seen talking to a pair of officers who, according to the Mail, had asked Rosby to turn down the music in his nearby automobile. Department spokesman Lt. Scott Swain said officers did so because it was upsetting the scene.
