The officers arrest the guy.What happens to MAX?He just stays in the car until his owner gets released from jail?What I'm getting at is,when a dog is on the scene,all persons involved have a responsibility to make sure the dog is taken care of.The person was not resisting arrest.There was no reason why they could not have let the owner calm the dog.Why not use an air canister horn,pepper spray or a loud command? WHO just pulls out a gun to shot?Maybe we don't need that kind of people as police officers.THEN he continues to shoot as the dog is movingAWAY!EVERY police dept needs to revisit their protocol when dealing with animals.They need training by humane,experienced trainers. These officers brought this on themselves. They deserv

Unfortunately, Liz, Salmon saw an opportunity to get back at Rosdy, whom he recognized. I think he deliberately provoked this situation (look at his face: he's full of hatred!). As you said he has no business being in the police force, and neither have his colleagues!

That is absolutely shocking. America- the land of the free. What a joke. The sickest joke of them all.

This is outrageous! After watching it, I called the Hawthorn Police Dept and was informed an investigation will be occurring. I asked why the man was arrested and the Officer I spoke with told me he was playing loud music and "obstructing" the Officers at the scene from doing their job. Please call the Hawthorn Police Dept, ask to speak to someone to voice your opinion of this, and they will transfer you to a voicemail box where they're sending individuals who have concerns about this. ...

Please call the Hawthorn Police Dept, ask to speak to someone to voice your opinion of this, and they will transfer you to a voicemail box where they're sending individuals who have concerns about this. These are my thoughts:
1. If the man was playing his music too loud, why couldn't they have asked him to turn it down? Why did they have to immediately arrest him?
2. Why didn't they let the man restrain his dog? Also, after they shot the dog, why did they let it bleed to death instead of putting it out of its misery?
3. How was he "obstructing" the Officers at the crime scene? All he was doing was recording their actions and he was a good distance away from them.

These officers can't get away for what they did your job is to serve and protect you arrest an innocent by stander and kill his dog before they let the man go so he can calm his dog down they kill it animals have every right as a human they feel pain love anger happiness etc....

There was NO reason to shoot that poor dog! That cop should be held accountable! This just makes me sick seeing that poor animal squirming in the video. The dogs owner should have been shot for acting so stupid & getting arrested!

Disgusting and evil. Everyone of these police officers should be charged over the death of Max.

Cops think they are above the law. Hope they are shot themselves.
