Looked justified to me

Also to the OP, there is a difference between detainment and arrest, one insinuates enough probable evidence for conviction. Do you know what that video shows?

What was the guy doing in the first place is what I want to know. The dog is innocent in all of this, I think that is where the issue lies. But what was that guy trying to gain from filming the cops, he could have just gotten in his car and driven away.

I didn't watch the video, I don't need to watch a dog get shot, but nobody should need a reason to film the police. They should be accountable at all times.

He was interacting with them too, other people were filming (such as the person filming the video we are watching) but they kept their distance. This guy was driving past and gets out of his car and starts filming and interacting with the cops. You can see the first part here (no dog shooting).

The cop shooting the dog is just complete carelessness and indifference on this cops' part. That did not at all need to happen. He was just like **** it, I need to look tough.

Police shouldn't be shooting at a dog.

Dog? Really?

he was scared the dog was going to bite him. What did you expect him to do? Wait to get bitten? I would have done the exact same thing. It's me or the dog. It was completely justified.

I'm as much an animal lover as anyone, but the officer's actions were entirely within reason. The owner is entirely at fault from what I'm looking at. The owner didn't properly secure the dog in the first place. Then the officer tried to get a handle on the dog's leash, attempted non-lethal force and then resorted to his sidearm when the dog continued being aggressive.

If it comes down to a dog's life or my well being, the dog goes down every single time...and I say this as a responsible dog owner myself who would be absolutely crushed to see my friend and companion die this needlessly. Hell, it hurts to see that video. All that being said, the officer is the absolute last person I blame here.

Calling this police officer a murderer, like some of these halfwits on Facebook are doing, is ridiculous.

Probably better to have the owner calm the dog down.

Blood of the dog is in the owner's hand. Didn't secure it properly.

Such a loyal dog too, which got it killed.

Never bring a Rottweiler to a gun fight.

I feel sorry for the dog but his owner is an idiot

The police are a bunch of wimps. If you are trained to serve and protect the public and you are afraid of a dog?

The dog is not going to kill a grown ass man, who is trained, such as that police officer. You're going to tell me a trained man is afraid of a dog bite?

What kind of trained law enforcement is he to be afraid of a dog and a dog bite to have to pull out his gun. A dog is not a life and death situation.
