A disgrace to the Police Force. These are not trained officers, they are thugs in uniform and the senior members of the police force should be ashamed of these officers sickening performance against a defenceless dog. Improvement is training is imperative, all officers must do mandatory work at dog shelters so that they can learn many aspects of life including how to handle and manage dogs! Your police training is seriously inadequate and a disgrace to al Police Department in the USA...

That man's dog was acting in the same way that police officers train their dogs and I froze when I saw this video - the dog was clearly not vicious (not a killer) but protecting his master. This policeman gun happy killer: removed from the force / jailed / fined. If that little aggravation we witnessed is all it takes for him to pull a gun - he shouldn't be carrying one - nor should he be a cop!. As for the Hawthorne Police Department - I am still unsure why one can be handcuffed for taking...

As for the Hawthorne Police Department - I am still unsure why one can be handcuffed for taking photos in a public area. What exactly did the guy do wrong other than record some happening in a public street that is done EVERY DAY and which - thankfully - was being recorded by someone else. What sort of training do these police officers get that they cannot rise over and above a fricken' phone recording. This was clearly a case of officers ego's power trips being put into practice against a black man for being outgoing - just because they wear a uniform. Murderering cop!

All someone had to do was grab the leash !! Use pepper spray? That was a misuse of deadly force.

So sick and tired of cops just shooting these poor dogs. The US has become a total police state and we need to put and end to it.

Despicable. The sort of person who would shoot a dog without flinching is not the sort of person who should have a gun constantly on their person. If he can so carelessly shoot an innocent animal, imagine the damage he could do to other human beings as well. A lack of remorse + a weapon is a very dangerous combination.

Makes me sick.... No excuse, but that's how officers are trained - to shoot/kill animals by which they feel threatened. It's just inexcusable and so ignorant, and ticks me off.

Even the dog knew its master/owner has done nothing wrong there!!!

If it were a human they wouldn't have shot it, they would have used a tazer gun and the dog would still be alive!
