1. Police called in during a non-violent verbal disagreement during which Mr Rosby was asked to leave his house for the evening by his wife. He complied.

2. Nevertheless - an army of officers swarmed the house and attacked Rosby - because he had earlier complained about a lack of African American officers within the department and a tendency toward racial profiling.

So what the **** are you talking about


Actually just read it now, odd he was hauled off in a non-violent confrontation... he probably did or said something to the cops to warrant it.

What do you expect the policeman to do, talk to the dog? The thing is if the dog stayed in the car they would just call animal control and be done with it, but the dog was obviously dangerous and the policeman got scared and defended himself.

His owner is standing next to him - he could easily cool down the dog if allowed to....he even attempts to before the idiot pulls out the gun.

Also, Is it not common sense these days that dogs are sensitive to noise? There were many sensible alternatives to shooting the dog.

Tough guy, shooting a dog three ****ing times.

Yes - he antagonized them through official complaints alleging a selective bias against employing African American officers and a tendency within the department toward racial profiling.

Right, since the cops are the ones looking aggravated and leaping out of a car and running towards another...

No the cops were calm and collected - arresting someone taking pictures and heckling them.

There were better alternatives to handing the perceived threat of the dog. Ideally allowing the owner to handle it. But if you're racist and don't feel comfortable with that you could also use common sense and common knowledge of dogs acute sense of hearing to fire a warning shot.

OR - and here's an idea - you can not be impulsively detain the guy for nothing which in effect triggered the entire situation.

Wtf, that cop provoked the dog not once, but twice. You do that to most dogs when you're a complete stranger and they're going to react, its animal AND human nature.

That cop must have some history of getting bitten to react like that. He looked like he shit his pants.

Apparently this isn't the first time that Rosby has had issues with the local police. His prior record includes convictions for resisting arrest, battery and driving under the influence. Rosby, a black man, has filed six complaints alleging mistreatment and racial profiling by the Hawthorn Police.

You didn't answer my question about the Trayvon Martin case. But, going off your above quote, I woud assume you think George Zimmerman was in the wrong because he didn't mind his business and went looking for trouble after being instructed to not follow Trayvon.

so according to you any threat is deserving of death? even if its not life threatening?

Im pretty sure using a baton, pepper spray, tazer or simply letting the owner calm the dog down all would have been better options than unloading 3 gun shots on a dog.

and by the way if you look at the video again the dog wasnt even gonna attack until the cop provoked it

He was looking for any reason to shoot the dog, so he forced one out of it.
