I'm sure the officer wishes he hadn't of shot, now that's its over.

supposedly, from other news sources, he had been asked repeatedly to turn down his music. Also, this guy has other lawsuits against the police department. his lawyer said this event "will be added to the lawsuit". Makes you wonder if he wasn't looking for trouble?

Sad deal for the dog. I have no speakers here at work, so I can't comment any further.

I always try to give both sides the benefit of any doubts, and would really like to know everything that led up to this, including what happened before the video clip we saw.

Perhaps those particular police officers were also "looking for trouble" because they already had it in for this man?

In the meantime, it can be very difficult for any of us to overcome our own preconceived biases and/or prejudices, which some have more for the cuffed man, some have more for the police officers, and I have more for the dog.

I guess I see things way different then all of you, the film clip I saw showed people standing everywhere even down the street where he was shooting not once but four or five times! shooting at a hard surface at that. He is so lucky he did not kill one of two people while shooting this dog! I would of taking a bite fro that dog any day before I would open fire at a dog with a crowd standing all around.
Most reckless shooting I have ever seen!

I can't stand people who get out of their car and leave the stereo blaring. Sorry his dog got shot and I'm not sure why he was arrested. Obviously not for videoing the scene, we're watching a video of him videoing.

But anyone who thinks their music should be "enjoyed" by everyone within 100 yrds deserves a beat down - IMO

I think everyone involved here is a jerk

They did not arrest him only for filming - others were obviously filming.. He was stirring trouble and should have secured the dog.. I'd have shot that dog as well as soon as it started showing uncontrolled aggression

Hawthorne. Nuff said. Bad people and bad situation. That place is a war zone and not somwhere I would ever go near when I was stationed in California. I sure would like to hear REAL story as the headline is definately misleading if not an absolute lie.

That said, I dont think he was arrested for filming the police as SCOTUS ruled that as being legal in Nov of 2012 and most LEA know this ruling as it created quite a stir. Police and public servants can be filmed on public streets or public areas.

As for the dog, it was going in and the officer has every right to protect himself. From the camera angle its tough to see if there were any people behind the line of fire. It seemed like he was almost going to finish the dog off when he realized his angle of fire had changed.

Some said the guy was asked to turn down his music several times and I bet the officers who went down the street were listening for the music from a specified distance to see if he was breaking an ordinance, add that with an already tense situation where the SWAT vehicle and several LEO units are on scene and I can see him getting arrested.

The guy knew he was going to get arrested from his actions and I think he set up much of what went down.
