Police shoot pet dog dead after arresting owner for videotaping

by J. D. Heyes, Natural News:

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.

    I watched the video several times, gotta say both side were in the wrong, IMHO, the dude was clearly trolling for a response(which he got) and the cops could have opened their eyes, and looked at the point of anyone who has a dog, and you grab them , their dog WILL be protective, so instead of grabbing him, and playing their Im king shit game, they would been better off of telling him to leave, then and there, then if he refused, then call animal control, who has a safe secure place for the dog, then arrest the dude if they really needed to,

    just my 2 cents,

    also being rural, have seen rural cops go to real extremes to help keep animals safe and out of trouble, too bad the city cops don’t have a similar mindset ect
