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