The officer kept approaching the dog. My God. Let the man go put the dog back in the car for goodness sake. Officer was just waiting for his moment to fire. Watch his body language.

The owner of the dog was not taping them, it was just a passerby that started taping the situation when he saw something was happening.

There's no reply button under Brenda's reply, so I have to click reply to Wayne, sorry. Anyway, yes the owner of the dog *was* taping them. Not that it matters, since he absolutely has a right to do so. But did you even watch the video? I'm not angry, I'm just wondering, because he is so clearly taping them (and someone else is taping him taping them). Again this is about the dog and not about little silly issues but it's clear that he was taping them. Even though they claim the disturbance...

I'd do an eyeroll at them but it's too serious an issue for eyerolls. The Officers better get punished...

yes it is about the dog and them officers because the same way they shot that dog is the same way they shoot people and it's a shame that a dog has to be killed before people start looking at these so called people that are supposed to protect and serve us

The punk shouldn't have been a smart ass trying to video tape the cops. Meanwhile the person video taping this is laughing about the dog getting out of the car. The dog jumps at cop it gets shot. If the owner wasn't a smartass punk trying to act cool he would have never gotten handcuffed and the dog would still be alive. Blame the owner for 1 being a dumbass and 2 leaving the window open enough for the dog to get out of the window. What if a child walked by eating a pork chop and the dog...

Mark, you must not understand the psyche of a dog. Further to that, the dog was not intent upon attacking anyone until repeatedly antagonized. I know the Rottweiler breed very well... and for that matter, as a daughter of a veteran, I believe that everyone has the right to record whatever they want. What do the police have to be afraid of if they weren't doing anything wrong?

If the officers had ignored this agreed "smart ass" these chain of events would not have happened. Police work has no place for " thin skinned " police officers. Secondly, the officer with the gun pulled should not have stuck his hand out toward the dog. Why did the officer not pull out his mace. Mace is the only thing that private citizens are allowed to use. I agree the guy with dog was a smart ass but he was not a direct threat to the officers. Also the officers used...

Also the officers used unnecessary roughness after the man was in handcuff. You see one officer spread the guys legs but then the other officer slams something into his chest. The cops are clearly annoyed.

I agree Darlene we have the right to record anything we want and the police in California have a terrible record of abuse on its citizens having the public eye may keep innocent people from being killed by the police our at least allow families justice in the many cases where beatings have occurred resulting in death. this guy didn't resist he put Max in the car probably thinking once he talked with the officers he would go on his way the third cop over reacted and should be fired....

The guy may have been a "smart ass", but the cops are clearly imbeciles that lack common sense when it comes to handling situations in a lawfully and safe manner. It boils my blood to even think that a person who represents the law would display such cruelty/abuse towards a man that was not a direct threat to anyone.

You are ignorant as f*ck Mark! It's every citizens right to record anything they want when it comes to the police and he was obviously not the only person recording, he also didn't advance through police cars or onto the 'crime scene'. My American Bulldog growls at any police officer when in uniform, I'm not sure why as I adopted him through a shelter but when it comes to kids he only gives them kisses and knows not to touch human food or food given to him by anyone without my 'okay'. Max...

Max does not appear 'viscous', he tries to protect his owner as all good dogs would, he also only goes for the cop when he reaches for him. I wish Max could have gotten his pound of flesh before being shot 4 times and left to die slowly, then it would have been justified. Trigger happy cops have no place in law enforcement. If that had been my dog I would be happily serving time in prison on death row for putting a bullet through that officers skull.

that dog wasn't a danger to anyone unless they harmed his owner. If the cops are so dirty they cant be video taped then shame on them.

My dog wouldn't jump a child for a pork chop. Quite an imagine, maybe write a book like" max the dog goes in search for pork chops". The non-fiction of this story is Max was a gentle, curious, devoted family pet. I do wish I could re-write the true story here but bottom line Max suffered tremendously due to

Revolutions start over things like this. Without trust the police will become very helpless and weak. That day is coming, if things like this continue. This police officer clearly was not afraid, but instead just wanted to set up an excuse to punish that man for videotaping him. The best way to punish him, kill his best friend. What a wimp of a man. Extremely lucky, I wasn't there.

that cops a ignorant dick. somebody needs to beat him senseless. that would be like a civilian shooting a police dog for treying to help a officer. that poor dog was trying to protect his owner

Jill Jackson

This is a senseless act. Too much power behind that badge and gun ~ and I come from a long line of law enforcement. Better training, better educating, better background checks!!! Uncalled for in so many aspects. My heart is broken over the completely senseless act. If the officer is that reckless with his gun and a dog, god help the people.

I watched the video a few times to understand why it was that the Rot was shot. I witnessed the officers approach the man "after" he was leaving the scene. They waited the whole time he was standing on the street and did nothing until he was going to leave. Then I witness the dog being maced in the face by two of the officers. If you look closely you can see this happen, all while the dog was obeying the owners commands by staying back. A dogs instinct is to protect against danger. I witness...

If you look closely you can see this happen, all while the dog was obeying the owners commands by staying back. A dogs instinct is to protect against danger. I witness the dog being fearful that the owner was in danger, and not attacking any officer. The dog was also fearful and clearly uncomfortable of the officers gun being pointed in it's face. It didn't attack the officer, but only toward the gun being aimed at his face. You can also see one of the cops aggressively grabbing the owners face and throat as he is trying to command the dog to back down. I really hope the video is investigated thoroughly and the proper authorities find what I have seen here.

I did not catch that, the mace part, probably due to the violence of the video. I could only stand watching it once. I have a rott, you are correct, he was obeying his master. The third cop is trigger happy, he probably would have shot the dog even if it had stayed in the car.

treat this disgusting officer with the same savage response that he dealt to this animal. He does not deserve to wear a police uniform - he is nothing short of an uneducated prick!
