Of course the dog jumped at the cop, the cop stepped too close it. Dogs are loyal and faithful to their humans and he was trying to protect his human.
That cop should have stayed away and the second cop that had the owner in custody should have stepped in.
You are right, the cops should have just run away at first sight of the dog and cleared the street so they wouldn't frighten the dog. It really is
all their fault, how dare they shoot a dog that was going to bite. They just shouldn't have been there.
There is no excuse for that officer's behavior. Fearing for your life is one thing, but coming out of nowhere and pulling a weapon on that dog when
it didn't understand what was happening to his human wasn't the right course of action.
Yeah i feel you, i think everyone missed that begining part of the video where it shows the dog playing in the street and the cop just jumps out of
his car and starts shooting at the dog for no reason whatsoever, he just came out of nowhere. Its like he just patrols the city looking for dogs to
Oh yeah, and arresting him for taping them was unlawful and they know it. I grew up in east LA and have witnessed scenes like that before where there
were multiple cops standing around with a few dozen bystanders looking on and a few videotaping, I have never seen officers act like that. This was
also in the 80's and 90's, before the cops primary duty was to fight "terrorism."
Why did the dude just get ready to be "arrested" when the cops came up? They walked up to him and he just turns around and puts his hands behind his
back. I grew up in compton and have seen cops arrest people too, what is your point?
Nice jump to hyperbole.
1. I never said the cops should have run away, read what you quoted.
2. Was the cop patrolling, looking for someone or something to shoot? Did I say he had "no reason whatsoever to shoot?" Again, read what you
3. Maybe they ordered him to turn around, couldn't hear that from the video but it does look as though they not called to him, but also motioned to
him to come back to them. Maybe he knows the drill because he lives there and has been in that situation more than once.
Since you grew up in Compton I would assume you have had your fair share of interactions with the police. If you have, then you would know that that
the majority of the time they like to make you turn around and put your hands behind your back so they can search you before they even attempt to talk
to you. Unless you grew up in the nicer part of Compton, then I'm sure the police were more cordial there.
