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.

police are mostly love to fire gun is make them feel great .and they are mostly stupid anyway that is why they want to be a police person to be in the uniform allow them to be stupid the way they act.. this is why I do not like cop not a bit.

The shooting/death of Max is horribly unnecessary, however I can not sign this petition. The officer had no choice but to subdue Max once he began charging. The onus is on Max's owner to make sure Max was securely in the vehicle, out of danger. Max's owner was so eager to interfere with an alleged civil rights violation that he put Max in danger by deliberately approaching the police officers and allowing/forcing the officers to cuff him. Max is of a fiercely loyal breed of dog. What did he...

The shooting/death of Max is horribly unnecessary, however I can not sign this petition. The officer had no choice but to subdue Max once he began charging.

Max's owner was so eager to interfere with an alleged civil rights violation that he put Max in danger by deliberately approaching the police officers and allowing/forcing the officers to cuff him. Max is of a fiercely loyal breed of dog. What did he think Max would do? Did he think at all about how his actions would turn out for Max? I think not. If the alleged civil rights violation was worth getting involved in, he should have remained silent, made SURE Max was safe, then use his phone or something to record the incident while enlisting the support of witnesses. Personally, if a situation like that arose, I would put my pet in the car and drive away. Max was his owner's responsibility, and so is his death.

watch again. if you call that "charging" you probably have a fear of dogs. if a rottie is on attack there would be no mistaking it.

Arlene, because he is a coward cop, killing innocent animals, instead of worrying about the original problem. This dog AND man did nothing wrong! Just a cop abusing his powers! I say he should be FIRED, NOW!

You can clearly see the dog was not attacking the officer. Best believe if and when this goes to court the officer will change his story and say he felt threatened and probably nothing will happen to this asshole because you know PIG'S stick together no matter what lie they say.

So sad! And cops wonder why the public doesn't trust them!?! I wish the same treatment & agony to that POS. that is not a public servant but more of a gun happy pig. I hope he rots in hell for what he did.

That was terrible and ridiculous, the dog was trying to protect his owner as any dog would do, but why did the police arrest the owner anyway he was just taking a video of what was happening. I thought we had freedom and rights ion America. That officer should be fired and investigated . He shot the dog and let him suffering, horrible. I hate to se innocent animal hurt for any reason, no matter who is the person that hurts an animal. The officer is a disgrace e and should be accountable for the animals life, just like a human life.

This is not something you'd ever expect to see in the US. Brutal, cold-blooded and criminal...not something done by any normal, rational person. Cops are really getting scary imo...and certainly not worthy of respect when you see this type of behavior from them. Trust a cop? No

Hi tech nation with a low minded enforcer... Too reckless! Must have apply a precautionary measure to avoid this kind of incedent, his an officer! he must know something about it...

Alfred Amedeo Corradini Sr.

AN officer should have been posted to keep a line NOT TO CROSS , NOT arrest any one you feel like and shoot animals ! If the other incident was so GOD AWFUL IMPORTANT then those officers should have stayed there ! NOT LEAVE A MAJOR scene to go to a MINOR one !
