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...

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!

I am in tears. I have a Rottweiller. This would have killed me. How could they?

I understand the police need to protect themselves however they should be trained on how to do it without killing. try the pepper spray duh!

Thats horrible, justice must be seek. The owner was there, and the dog wasnt really a threat. He could have calmed him, if the would let him. Animals do have rights!

I wish I hadn't signed this petition. After further investigation and watching the second video, it seems the man was looking for a confrontation with police. It is sad that Max was shot but it was the owners fault. Why did he stop at the scene in the first place and play his music so loud. Officers clearly asked him on multiple occasions to turn down his music or he would be arrested. He refuses and starts videoing the scene. It's unfortunate Max had such a dumb ass for an owner! The dog...

The dog was clearly going to bite the officer and I would have done the same thing. You know what an 80# dog can do to human flesh? It's weird 5 minutes ago I wanted to hang the officers. Just watch the second video before passing judgement. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/08/second-video-dog-shooting_n_3536658.html

It is not illegal to play music loud ,,, or tape police at a scene!!!! if you watch the film again you will see the f-ing cop already has his gun out as he approaches the other cops, he was looking for a fight and the dog was only protecting his master, DID YOU SEE HOW HE PUT THE DOG IN THE CAR?????.... and you need to stop condoning what these idiots did,, just like the cop that killed a Sunday school teacher and lied about it ,,,, he said she drove off and he was caught in the...

He should not have been harassing cops. The cop was reaching for the leash but the dog took an unsuspected leap. Stick to the limits of your own perception. Do not sign this.

Sign the petition: Everyone that knows me (Gordon Wayne Watts) knows I'm only ~120-lbs. If I'm not afraid of dogs, then the police shouldn't be. Their action constituted 'Excessive Force' within the meaning of the law & they should thus be prosecuted.
