If I were manhandling the owner of a rotweiler, german shepard, pitbull or a couple other breeds I would expect a dogbite. So shooting the dog was probably necessary although I stopped watching before the shot took place so I dont know how it went down in the last seconds.
What I do blame the cop for is arresting the guy. The cop just wanted some form of compliance from the guy and he would have gotten that by talking with the guy. He wasnt doing anything illegal except possibly disturbing the peace with his car (which would piss me off as a neighbor, if I thought it was disturbing the ongoing police work).
