Hawthorne, CA Police Arrest Man for Filming Raid, Shoot his Dog in Front of Him

Chris | InformationLiberation

In this shocking video out of Hawthorne, California, police arrest a man for videotaping a SWAT team barricade, then shoot and kill his dog when it comes to his rescue.

The dog is seen flailing around as his life is drained from him thanks to the officers' actions.

It should be noted filming police is entirely legal, the cops falsely charged the man with "obstruction" as a pretext to falsely arrest him, therefor it's irrelevant the dog threatened the officers, as the cops consciously and cynically chose to commit a false arrest because they didn't feel comfortable with him videotaping.

From CBS LA:
Attorney Michael Gulden said his client Leon Rosby was watching and taking video of the Hawthorne SWAT team when police claimed Rosby was obstructing officers during the barricade.

Rosby is seen in video footage walking with the dog – which appeared to be a Rottweiler – near several patrol cars to capture the scene on his phone.

After an exchange with nearby officers, Rosby is heard saying the words, “civil rights violation” before returning the dog to his vehicle.

As officers begin to proceed toward Rosby, he also begins walking in the direction of the officers and is then taken into custody without any further exchange.

While Rosby is handcuffed, the dog is seen escaping from the vehicle through an open rear window and then approaching the officers while barking.

When one officer motions toward the animal, the dog is seen jumping up and toward the officer, at which point four shots were fired, according to Gulden.
Update: Here's video from Mr. Rosby explaining how the incident went down:

68234 Wow. Fuck these police officers. This man was within his rights and clearly not obstructing any investigation. Both of the arresting officers should be suspended without pay pending a full investigation and the prick who discharged his weapon should be immediately fired. What I find absolutely staggering is that these fucking idiots let the scene play out like this with dozens of onlookers and someone pointing a video camera at them.

Not to mention firing a weapon at pavement with people all around is a great way to hit someone with a ricocheting bullet. Incredibly unsafe and very poor judgement. Where was this moron's Taser? Idiots should not be carrying firearms.

65170 There are longer cuts of this video on youtube. The cops had plenty of right to identify and question this man but NOT detain him. Because this man was illegally detained his dog became uneasy and we have this sad outcome. The police sit and wonder why the public doest trust them as thigns like this continue to happen.
Contact the Hawthorne Police press office at 310-349-2835 and voice your concern. you can also email Scott Swain at

50144 If you guys actual pay attention in the video it doe not show the officers detaining him. Look up the meaning before you use it! He was detained after the fact.The officers had every right to shoot the dog. It was launching toward them. And for the idiot who said, "firing a weapon at pavement with people all around"... So if a person was on the ground with a gun, would the officer not shoot the man? Oh no let us not shoot because there is pavement.

71207 The officer reached over the dog's head and it jumped up at him. The dog was not an attack dog. When it arrived near its master it stopped and actually sniffed the ground, then backed off. The situation was handled entirely inappropriately by the police. Did not detain him? They handcuffed him. This is entirely police abuse. Call (310) 349-2700 to tell them so.

68234 "So if a person was on the ground with a gun, would the officer not shoot the man? Oh no let us not shoot because there is pavement."

Are you actually going to argue that this situation is even remotely similar to officers needing to take down someone with a gun? Lol. Because there are often people crowding around police shootouts, right? And because that dog had a gun, right? Sheeple like you are the reason this country is going to shit.

76168 For the person posting that he isn't being detained by the officer he actually is, once the officer cuffed him as you can see in the video you are in their custody. Now it doesn't mean you are arrested it just means you are being detained so that the officer can investigate if you are suspect of a crime or about to commit a crime how ever from viewing this video is saddens me to see that the officers denied this person rights for they had no reason to detain him and furthermore the shooting officer used poor judgment discharging his firearm in an open area like that where civilians could of been caught in the crossfire it appeared to me that the officer was in no immediate danger and could of discharged his stun gun instead of using deadly force as he did. Sadly this is ultimately one of the reason why I ended up quitting the force the training regime just isn't as thorough as it was before and it seems like these new rooks just use bad common sense in judgment

9996 ok.. the pigs arrested the man for recording an incident.
1. should not have happen.
2. this is the reason the dog jumped out.
3. if the illegal arrest never took place the dog would have never been shot.

no arrest = no dog shooting

i hope the lawsuit sticks and this fucking moron of a cop gets fired, and fined as well as jailed.

99180 lets bet that police officer lol yea ok was a little baby in school, got no girls, got picked on...thats a sissy lol needs a azz whooping.. he might be a cop, but that doesnt stop anyone from beating i right?

Posted: Jul 01 2013, 10:36 PM

70177 That officer should be fired that shot the dog. And the arresting officers should be terminated from the force. Being a police officer they should know the LAW, filming police is entirely legal, the cops' falsely charged the man with "obstruction" as a pretext to falsely arrest him!

Posted: Jul 01 2013, 10:39 PM

213112 Totally understandable situation. I would have done that exact same thing without a doubt. Good job to the police officer.

68102 Fucking faggot pussy cop! The dog wasn't a threat until you waved your pussy faggot trigger happy gunholding hand in his face. I hope you get shot 4 times in your chest faggot, then go burn in hell. The dog was just trying to protect its master, then once it realized its master wasn't being harmed he backed away. the only threat there that day was you, pussy faggot pig.
