VIDEO: Police Shoot Dog Defending Owner As Cop Arrested Him - For Filming Them (Warning: GRAPHIC!)

Ashley Collman | Daily Mail | July 2, 2013

A video posted yesterday on YouTube shows the grisly shooting of a dog by a police officer in Hawthorne, California.

The 130-pound, 3-year-old Rottweiler named Max was shot to death after he escaped through a window in a parked car and ran over to his master, Leon Rosby, who was being arrested for filming the scene on his phone.

The video shows Rosby, 52, walking his dog Sunday around 7 p.m. near a house with several police squad cars parked outside.

If you want to be offended

by something, this should be the stuff that should offend you. This is an OUTRIGHT ABUSE OF POWER and I don’t care what color their skin is. The white pervert in the yellow shirt should go to jail, the white old fart should retire immediately out of embarrassment and the white judge should be fired for not knowing the law and letting this sick a$$hole control her court. The woman of color should sue and if I was on the jury I would award her one million dollars because this is what our soldiers are supposed to be fighting for, so these kinds of things don’t happen. Also the Judge and the old fart should have to put flags on military gravesites every weekend for a year to remind them of the duty as civil servants.

All the comments here that

All the comments here that defend the cops and have disdain for the guy videotaping seem to have a racial undertone to it.

I doubt if this would have been a WHITE Ron Paul supporter we would see the same type of comments by people saying he should have minded his own business...or that he deserved it... I just cannot imagine that we would see comments like this if the guy was wearing a ron paul shirt.

I could be wrong, but I doubt it. Especially because of all the racial comments I see on youtube that are critical of the guy videotaping..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

I think YOU try to make race

I think YOU try to make race a bigger issue then it is. If you don't like people race baiting on youtube then why are you doing it here? Race matters 0% Individual matters 100%

Because I am convinced that

Because I am convinced that the comments ehre would be very different if the guy was a white guy with a Ron Paul t-shirt on... now that not be true, and we won't know, but there is definitely something to the fact that this guy is black and from the hood and this alone leaves a negative impression in some peoples mind. If you don't think people prejudge others and then inject whatever bias they have, I don't know what to tell you.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

There is a difference between civil disobedience

disobedience and civil stupidity. The dog owner was intentionally trying to provoke a response from an agent of the government; you have to ask yourself why? Then you have to ask yourself who is responsible. He put himself in to a situation that was none of his business, I don’t have any sympathy for someone like this, I just feel bad for the dog because he was just acting on his natural instinct.

You mean he was at least 50

You mean he was at least 50 ft away videotaping what was going on like most of the others in the neighborhood, and that he hasa right to do?

For some reason I think the people on here who defend the cops and think that the guy was doing something wrong has some racial undertones to it... I doubt if this would have been a WHITE Ron Paul supporter we would see the same type of comments by people saying h e should have minded his own business...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

stupid comes in all colors

Have you ever heard about the 3 umpires? They were asked, how do you call ball and strikes.
First replies: “I call it how I see it”
Second replies: “I call it what I want it to be”
Third replies: “ I call it what it is”

You see numb skull……I could care less what the color of his skin is, but I call it for “what it is” Stupid is stupid and the fact that you brought race into it means you must be stupid.

The guy was clearly not just out walking his dog, because he drove there.
The guy was clearly sticking his nose in to something that wasn’t his business….because he was walking around looking for angles to take better pictures and prancing his dog around.
The cops were clearly ignoring him.
The guy was clearly looking to get the cops attention by engaging them.
The guy was clearly not interested in keeping his dog safe because he would have rolled up the windows.
The guy was clearly guilty of trying to provoke the police and he got what he wanted……he knew he dog would respond, he knew his dog is a breed that can be threatening and he knew there was chance they would use force.

I am not a defender of the cops I am a defender of the truth…..I am the third umpire…..you are obviously a second umpire……and your way of thinking ruins the game for everyone else.

Stop being part of the problem and be part of the solution.

What seems so clear to you is

What seems so clear to you is totally unclear to me. I don't know how this story got to be a racial one. After ignoring the guy filming them although clearly he was not the only one filming them, why did the police suddenly feel the urge to approach him, cuff him and start to take him away...Their use of guns is so quick and predetermined it seems to me. They provoked the dog by manhandling his owner... and shot the dog without any remorse or humanity whatsoever.How can this story be a racial one? Over and over we are witnessing police out of control with their powers. Who is writing their job descriptions?

Mr. Middleton played the race card.

Because we didn’t agree on who was the instigator, the police or the dog owner. Mr. Middleton wants to rewrite the facts to meet his ends. The dog owner clearly states to the officers “why aren’t there any black officers at the scene, this is a civil rights violation”. I am only judging the scene on the facts not the color of anyone skin color, it’s not a race issue……it’s a stupidity issue. Now come to find out this dog owner has a past incident and is suing for “civil right violations”. I think the guy was looking for trouble and he found it……that’s my opinion.


"Before we can ever ask how things might go wrong; we must first explain how they could ever go right"


Because the man is suing for

Because the man is suing for "civil rights violations" how does that justify the police reacting to him and therefore proving him to be right.Are the police not trained to rise above taunting or police baiting? They (whoever the they is) need to raise their standards for hiring. The police acted like naughty children in the playground and became bullies who took it out on the dog. Was their motive to show the cuffed man "whose boss"? Well shame on the derelicts in uniform who have nothing better to do than violate civil liberties and kill their pets.

You all of that happened of

You all of that happened of him being on the OTHER side of the street videotaping the cops? Again, what was the reason they arrested hm? You mean he should have closed the windows so the dog should have died from heat exhaustion instead?

I didn't know you were mind reader. Amazing how you know what this guy knew... What am I thinking right now about you?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

strike two

listen to the people in the tape.....even they knew he was trying to provoke them.......you just can't twist it into what you want it to be......the truth is right in front of you but your own prejusdice prevents you from seeing it.

"Before we can ever ask how things might go wrong; we must first explain how they could ever go right"



I rarely feel people who defend cops have racial undertones to it. I usually think people that defend a cops criminal actions are doing so because they are(or have family members that are) cops or are connected financially to cops. Those cover the majority of 'cop defenders' I've come across in real life with a few bullies and assholes, that enjoy the violence/power aspect, mixed in.

If the pricks wanted to bust

If the pricks wanted to bust his balls fine. Killing his dog crosses the line, they could have uncuffed him and let him put his dog in the car or turn them over to them safely. Instead they just walk up on it while fucking with his owner... the dog knows right from wrong fuck your badge. Where is a cop killer when you need one.

Is It Time To SHOOT Cops.....

Because They Might SHOOT YOU?


I think you have to wait until they actually bite you.


If I point a gun at a cop

If I point a gun at a cop should he have the right to shoot me? Why is it any different the other way around?

Your Right of Defense Against Unlawful Arrest

“Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer's life if necessary.” Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306. This premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case: John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529. The Court stated: “Where the officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. What may be murder in the first case might be nothing more than manslaughter in the other, or the facts might show that no offense had been committed.”

“An arrest made with a defective warrant, or one issued without affidavit, or one that fails to allege a crime is within jurisdiction, and one who is being arrested, may resist arrest and break away. lf the arresting officer is killed by one who is so resisting, the killing will be no more than an involuntary manslaughter.” Housh v. People, 75 111. 491; reaffirmed and quoted in State v. Leach, 7 Conn. 452; State v. Gleason, 32 Kan. 245; Ballard v. State, 43 Ohio 349; State v Rousseau, 241 P. 2d 447; State v. Spaulding, 34 Minn. 3621.

“When a person, being without fault, is in a place where he has a right to be, is violently assaulted, he may, without retreating, repel by force, and if, in the reasonable exercise of his right of self defense, his assailant is killed, he is justified.” Runyan v. State, 57 Ind. 80; Miller v. State, 74 Ind. 1.


Yeah sounds nice and all

but how does it go down in real life?

Let's take this story that just happened:

What do you think would've happened had the property owner executed those 5 armed invaders of his property? Would the rest of the cops be like 'well statute blah blah blah says the guy has right to defend himself and his property'? I don't. I think they'd firebomb the guy's house, declare him a terrorist, honorate the fallen 'heroes' in the media for a couple weeks topped off with some teary eyed drivel from Obama, and all the more sheeple would be calling for wider restrictions on gun ownership.

my answer is still .........no

I didn't say it's any different the other way around.

Although, I can't imagine that you're blogging at the Daily Paul with a cop's gun pointed at you.

So my answer stands!

"Is it time to shoot cops..?"


The thing is I've had a cop

The thing is I've had a cop point a gun at my head multiple times throughout my life, and none of those times was I armed or any threat to the officer or anyone else. Twice on my own property. Not a very comfortable situation, especially knowing that if the cop shot me dead he would very likely face zero to little repercussions.

I know of no situation where a person who pointed a gun at a cop wouldn't immediately get gunned down by said cop. And since cops don't have to worry about being held accountable they'll just willy nilly pull out their guns on people for very little reason.

So, when in your mind is it time to shoot cops? When they point a gun at you? Because they will kill you if you point a gun at them.

Interview with owner here

Note that at first, officer's said they acted for the OWNER'S protection. That has been adjusted to the OFFICER'S protection. Becuse, police now say, the owener was RESISTING. Yeah the guy we saw turn around and put his arms behind his back and stay utterly still wile taken into custody RIGHT ON TAPE was resisting. Maybe in his mind or something.

So Hawthorne PD is "investigating". Yup, we know how that's gonna turn out. Interfering with a crime scene, resisting arrest, assaulting, assaulting an officer, officers acted within departmental protocol, bla di bla, they all get "Most Sensitive Cop Of The Year" awards and promotions.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.


Sad nothing else can be said :(

Muzzle that buff dog

If you are going to publically display a dog that has a reputation, such as this "buff" dog does, then it might be a good idea to have a muzzle on him so he doesn't bite a child.
In many countries, people who walk these kind of dogs, they're required (as a safety precaution) to have a muzzle.
The idiot here is the dog's owner...sadly, buffy's owner should had been the one on the lease.
He evidently wanted to show his hood that he was a "bad ass" and is not intimidated by the cops on his "turf".
A true idiot, don't you know when you see a squad car or the boys in blue, to go in the opposite direction, as a safety precaution.
The dog's owner reminds me of a little kid playing with a dangerous snake...poking at it and playing, showing his friends he's not afraid, and next thing...BAM...he's got you.
I'd rather have a cop living next door than a "hot shot" jerk with his Buff Rottweiler.

I'll Up Vote You

...because I agree the owner is an idiot, but no less so than the cop who shot the dog. Two idiots is a perfect recipe for disasters like this.
What's most bothersome to me though, is the fact that unarmed/disarmed Californians are forced to deal with dogs in situations just like this every day. What the cops are are saying is "f*** you, lowly citizens. We've got our guns, but you'll just have to figure out some other way to protect your kids in cases like this".
A good friend of mine was walking his two poodles at Ventura Beach a few years ago when they were attacked by two pit bulls whose owners were walking them unleashed. Both poodles were killed and my friend was hospitalized with lacerations to his arms, face and scalp. The dog owners just ran away from the scene with their "pets".
F*** the cops and f*** ALL thoughtless, irresponsible dog owners.
