Even tho you knew you were video taping everything and that you'd get a gigantic lawsuit settlement after?

These things are designed to be shocking.
Think about this logically for a second, which admittedly is difficult given the content of the video. However, there are so many details and conclusions pointing toward this being some type of hoax or skit. There is just no way any officer would allow or recommend someone who is clearly upset/hostile to grab a knife. The liability of accidental injury alone would be staggering, let alone the liability if he were to attack one of the officers or another person.
That is just my opinion, but I posted a few things earlier taking a closer look at each major part of this. Several other ATSers have also expressed concerns regarding the validity of this. Just something to consider, keep in mind this hasn't graced MSM yet either.

Because folks are stupid.
If they wanted to figure out if the dog had rabies they should take a post mortum blood draw and find out.
If they thought the dog had some sort of brain disease then maybe a surgeon or somebody more qualified should remove the head for examination. The last person on earth qualified to properly remove a dogs head for scientific study would have been the dog owner and it certainly wouldnt have been the dumb cop.
Forcing the dog owner to do it is a combination of unethical pathology coupled with plain stupidity and ignorance. Basically it would take a group of pathological literal morons to make a law that stupid and pass it. But given the location frankly im not surprised in the least.
Not exactly a shining example of being the greatest country on earth. Not that anybody else in the world whos not living under a rock actually believes that self agrandizing hype.
What samples are needed for rabies testing?
Rabies testing should be performed in accordance with the established national standardized protocol for rabies testing by a qualified laboratory that has been designated by the local or state health department. Euthanasia should be accomplished in such a way as to maintain the integrity of the brain so that the laboratory can recognize the anatomical parts.
Except in the case of very small animals, such as bats, only the head or brain (including brain stem) should be submitted to the laboratory. Fresh frozen (unfixed) tissues are preferred for rabies diagnosis
