Police Officer Shoots Dog that was Protecting His Owner [VIDEO][POLL]

In Hawthorne California, a police officer fatally shot a Rottweiler that had lunged at officers while they were attempting to arrest its master. The owner, Leon Rosby, was arrested when he was videoing the officers as they surrounded a home where they were searching for a suspected armed robber.

The police say they were arresting Rosby after he refused to turn down “loud” car music.

The video below shows an officer shooting the dog multiple times.

***BE ADVISED, THE VIDEO IS GRAPHIC***

It should be known that at the time Rosby had six active lawsuits pending against the Hawthorne Police Department for civil rights abuses, when the police officers noticed him. In a statement released by the police department, they make no mention of the lawsuits but do say they arrested Rosby for playing loud music, walking a large dog, and being too close to officers. Saying that all together it was “distracting to officers”.
