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.

Hi Leon, if you get to read this, I am so sorry for you & Max, he died for you and they are tough dogs even with bullets in them......... Max's pain was only for a few moments, so dont dwell on it, then God took him and he is in safe hands now........ I hope the officers get the same treatment, if you see an officer being shot or hurt... just step over them and keep walking........... they do not care, I suspect being a black guy had a lot to do with what this evil pos did....................RIP Max.

Thx Lea, I know people do use the race card when they should'nt but with Leon being known to the police for standing up for his rights a while ago...... it is definitly played a part... revenge, I honestly believe if it was me a white guy instead of Leon, they would have allowed me to get Max........... Leaon did everything right, Max on a lead, then he put him in his car and the windows were slightly open so Max would not overheat.... he did what any rottie would do, he forced himself out...

My rottie would do the same and has protected me in the past....... I am glad to read the officers are of fronline duties... for 'their p[rotection'.... ppl think thats a cop out, but they probably are shitting bricks that not only Black folk want revenge, the white community do to! thx gary :)

The officer could have used his stick to push the dog away...the officer lunged at the dog...the dog was sniffing the ground, and watching his human being man handled by what appeared to be a threatening situation to his human. My dog, and I am sure most dogs would have gone ape shit seeing men in "uniform" acting aggressive with their master. That's why they are "man's best friend". That officer is a coward, POS, and his only required duty is detailing squad cars, or better yet on latrine detail with a tooth brush.

Cops think they can hide behind their shield and are above the law.. one thing comes to mind that I will say to this officer KARMA IS A BITCH

The point is, the police had absolutely NO reason to approach that man. He was not interfering AT ALL with what they were doing.

You are right on that point! I was like, just what the heck are they getting on this guy for? His demeanor was totally non-threatening. He was just a Lookie-Lou, just like any scene with all those cop cars will always draw.
