Hideous. That dog was of medium size, and didn't look vicious, only as if he was demonstrating the usual loyalty dogs have for their owners. The man gave himself up voluntarily, and beyond the fact that fact that the dog seemed able to be restrained without being killed, what looked like sheer cruelty was the way the officer shot him repeatedly and then just stood back calmly, holding his fire while he WATCHED the dog writhe in pain. Why wouldn't he at least "finish off" the animal he...

Why wouldn't he at least "finish off" the animal he put in great pain in the first place?...That looked VERY sadistic. No one wants a sick, sadistic individual "officially" carrying a badge and a gun.

Totally agree! Take away the gun before he shots another innocent bystander. This is outrageous. That insect of a human should be shot and left to die slowly...

That officer have NO self control and needs to be FIRED! There were people around who could have EASILY been harmed from gunshots being fired for No Reason! ANY officer who pulls their gun so quickly and without good cause, Does Not Deserve To Serve THE PEOPLE.

Wow! That's quite an assessment. 4 times Max came at them. I believe the police showed remarkable self control. I know that there might have people off screen and in the line of fire, but there was nobody on screen and in the line of fire. Trust me, when a large, powerful dog, of the type that is frequently used for guard dog, is coming right at you, 4 times (one time being to within a foot or less of your body) the shots are not "for no reason". I disagree with your last statement. The...

I disagree with your last statement. The officer saw a real, potential threat (large dog who's owner was being held by the police) and responded as he should have. I'm pretty sure he didn't pull his gum thinking, "Oh goody, I get to shoot a big dog. Wait 'till I get his head mounted on my wall." Is that what you think he was thinking? Max's health and safety still set squarely on the shoulder of Max's owner.

Bridget, nothing like this is acceptable; the owner was telling the dog to stay back. Dogs protect their owners. You are 100% WRONG

Are you nuts? Even though I am usually supportive of law enforcement, this was a cruel use of brute force! If you think that what that officer did was acceptable, YOU belong in the pile of excrement people who should be shot and left to die slowly as well!

As a matter of fact, Leon Rosby's young daughter was in the car. She is devastated and frightened. She believes the Hawthorn PD would have harmed her father were it not for Max, the Rottweilers intervention that cost him his life.

Same here and in a heartbeat. My wife and used to have a Rottie too. Every cop that was part of the poor dog's killing should be fired without any benefits.

Why was the man even being arrested?? I am so sick of police abusing power they don't deserve. If you watch closely, it's the officer that lunges at the dog TWICE! Then shoots the dog when it responds and doesn't even have the decency to put the dog down. Not even human in my opinion!!

Unbelievable - there was NO reason to shoot this dog and then stand there like an IDIOT and watch it writhe in pain. The animal did NOT pose a threat - the officer had PLENTY of time to move away - the incompetent cop was definatively OVERZEALOUS - and should be kicked off the force. I do not berate cops easily - but this is blatant incompetence - obviously the dog approached prior times and did NOTHING - there was NO indication that this dog was going to do ANYTHING - what an a**hole -...

that was just WRONG in so many ways. The man did nothing wrong and you shot his dog for trying to protect his owner. They should all be fired.
