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.

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.

I just don't know how a cop would kill this breed of dog.

This shit happened around here in Bay Area too few months back, 2 cops for some reason were trying to check out the house of some lady in her 50s when she wasn't even home, got a call about suspicious activity perhaps. The cops apparently went to the backyard and shot her dog after she supposedly "made aggressive gestures". The lady told the reporters that her dog was some 7 year old(basically in her 50s by dog years) female golden retriever that never even hurt anyone and was a "sweet old companion".

These cops we have are just the same psychos they hunt, lot of them bunch of trigger happy rednecks that will look for any excuse to fire their weapon. We saw how they handled the Christopher Dorner situation, shooting at old chinese ladies in their cars.

Seriously, send all these cops to Afghanistan lets see how tough they really are, bunch of power hungry ******* think they are tough shit because of a badge. I was surprised they actually hit that dog from that distance, their aim is usually shit in such dramatic circumstances.

Cop was a ****ing *****. So what if he gets biten by a dog? The bite is not going to kill you. There was no need to kill that dog.

I've been biten by multiple dogs before, and they usually just go for your arm. Hurts like hell, but it's not life threatening.

The worst part is that theres no repercussions for this type of behavior. This cop will get flack from the public, but his superiors wont even view this as a negative thing. The cop will go on thinking he did what was right and everything will continue the same.

The whole incident. You can see the SWAT truck in the background and the cops trying to secure the scene. You can also see the cop go for the leash twice before shooting the dog.

This is what could have happened:

Also, the guy wasn't "arrested for filming cops", he was being detained for interfering with a fcking SWAT raid.

Completely justified.
