LiveLeak video shows Albuquerque Police murdering homeless man for "illegally camping".
Police say 38-year-old James M. Boyd is the man who was killed. Boyd was arguing with police for hours last Sunday in the foothills after officers were going to talk to him about illegally camping.
At Friday’s press conference, Chief Gordon Eden said Boyd pulled two knives on the officers when they first went to talk to him.
Chief Eden said Officers Keith Sandy and Dominque Perez each fired their rifles three times.
It’s unclear how many bullets hit Boyd.

Chief Eden said officers fired because Boyd made a direct threat at the canine officer who was unarmed. (emphasis mine)
My question is... Why isn't the DOG considered a weapon?
