Police Arrest Man For Filming Raid, Then Shoot His Dog In Front Of Him

BY Herschel Smith
6 years, 2 months ago

Professor Reynolds co-authored the paper A Due Process Right To Record The Police, while he also points to Morgan Manning’s article on photographers’ rights.  But the constitution matters not to the Hawthorne, California police department, who arrested a man for filming a raid, drawing out a protective dog and then shooting the dog in front of him.

As I’ve written before, you have no right to invade my home or kill my beasts.  You can add to that list “arrest me for photographing you, you bunch of statist, totalitarian thugs.”

Oh, and add to that the fact that I think the officer is a pussy. I wouldn’t have had to shoot the dog to get control of it.

    Note too, these sonsofbitchin’ pigs likely were shooting in a direction where there were bystanders that could have been hit too.

    Looks like this was another bullshit war on *some* drugs Gestapo raid, then they arrest the dog’s owner for a -LEGAL- activity, photographing/videoing government officials on ‘duty’.

    Remember this as you wolf down hot dogs on 4 July.

    ‘Independence Day’, ha, a holiday that is no longer appropriate in this tyranny that masquerades as a free country.

    Revolution2 is long overdue…

    The police CAUSED this incident. There was NOTHING illegal that the guy did. No reason to handcuff him.

    This time it was just a dog (which is bad enough). There will come a time when it will be people (hell, that’s already happened). I’m just thankful in some sense that I’ve never actually witnessed something like this b/c I’ll be God-Damned if I’m gonna just stand by while it happens.

    Felony cruelty to an animal charges should be in order.

    It is very clear from the officers’ behavior and body language what happened here.

    The officers became angry and allowed their anger to govern their actions. They became flustered and made an abrupt decision to take away the man’s freedom of movement. They accosted a dog’s owner unduly and the dog performed its obligation to protect its owner while showing more restraint than the officers.

    If they had not let their emotions control their behavior, they could (and should) have assessed the situation before rushing headlong in to it. They would have asked the individual to roll the windows up in the car, had a polite discussion with him about the noise level of his stereo (which didn’t seem to be a problem until they had already quickened to anger) and gone on their way. That is to presume they had any business with the man in the first place.

    The absurdity of toy soldiers running around our neighborhoods is on display for all to see here. What’s more absurd is that we have allowed the police, who serve at our leisure, to arm themselves to the teeth and employ people who cannot control their emotions.

    This will continue until we set and enforce consequences and policy on officers and departments. The first step should be stripping officers of their immunity. They will not cease this behavior of their own volition.

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” –Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn

    Do you here that music? That was from this idiots car. This clip shows just the end of the encounter not the moron stopping in the middle of the intersection, being told repeatedly turn down the radio which was causing an issue with cops hearing what was going on in an armed standoff. This idiot never turn down the radio and didn’t secure his dog which is what led to his dog being shot. !00% this morons own fault!

    I don’t think anything will happen to the brave officer who faced that large aggressive Rottweiler. Video shows him approaching his brothers in arms (probably to figure out what was going or to ask them if they wanted a doughnut) when he noticed the large vicious Rottweiler charging his brothers. At one point it looked as if he attempted to reach for the leash (maybe to restrain the dog and wait for a non-kill animal control agency to assist with it )and the beast charged at him and attempted to maul the officer to death. So, the officer (in fear for his life ) shot the viscous beast.
    Owner should be charged for assaulting a police officer (for not physically confining his dog and training his dog to charge officers)

    Thanks for commenting. Your remarks are so stupid and so deceitful that they deserve a response. I will do that tonight in a separate post.

    EEllis, the police have forever lost their public relations war for my support. Cops created the “us vs. them mentality” and through incidents like this, cops perpetuate it. You treat us all like criminals, even when exercising constitutional rights. As far as I am concerned, you are a gang with flashy badges, and taxpayer-provided amenities. And if the bad guys are breaking in, I’ll handle that one on my own. For all I know, the bad guys breaking down my door might be cops.

    As far as I’m concerned the police are the enemy. There are no good police since they’re all in service to the rotten politicians that have destroyed the Republic, and they need to dealt with in the same manner. I teach my children that cops are dangerous and that they are to be avoided at all costs. There’s going to come a day when The Gang gets its comeuppance.

    First of all, they had no valid reason to try and arrest that man, thats why they let him go a few hours later. Secondly…..Anyone with 1/2 a brain can see the dog was not being aggressive. In fact, the full video shows the dog being obedient and listening to directions from his owner. These so called “trained and educated” officers should have noticed all the windows open on the vehicle they “ordered” the man to put the dog into!!!! The dog saw his owner in trouble and in a situation he probably never saw before……so the dogs natural reaction was to run to help his owner!!!! In my opinion, the officers instigated the situation and unjustifiably killed the dog. If this was a white guy, in a white neighborhood, taking video of an incident, the cops would have walked away and left the guy alone! Shame on these cowards!! They are the very reason why people have no respect for police officers anymore!!
