A Police Officer In Hawthorne California Shot And Killed A Dog That Was Defending It’s Owner Leon Rosby
A video posted on YouTube shows a police officer in Hawthorne California shooting a dog. The 130-pound Rottweiler named Max was shot to death after he escaped through a window in a parked car and ran over to his master, Leon Rosby, who was being arrested.
So how did this play out? According to the Daily Mail, Rosby was walking his dog and video-tapping a police scene when he was arrested for obstruction of justice.
He locked his dog in the car with the windows rolled down, and while being arrested the dog escaped. A police officer shot the dog when it ran over to his owner”
Why was Rosby being arrested?
Hawthorne Police Lt Scott Swain said that officers were warning Rosby to turn down the music in his car. The music was loud and interrupting with what the police officers were doing.
‘It’s distracting the officers. It’s interfering with what they are able to hear,’ Lt Swain said. ‘It’s not just a party call. It’s an armed robbery call. The officers need to hear what’s going on with the people being called out of the residence. That music in his car is bleeding over and it’s distracting them.’
Rosby put Max in the car, and two officers are seen starting to walk towards Rosby. Next, Rosby calmly walks over to the officers and volunteers himself for arrest.
As the officers put handcuffs on Rosby, the dog starts barking and manages to jump out of the car. Another police officer comes over and looks like he’s trying to grab the leash when the dog jumps up and the officer shoots him several times.”
The officers are claiming that the officers did this in defense and were also looking out for Rosby.
