By imagining that they actually killed the black guy and got the same punishment they got for killing the dog. Makes their dicks hard just thinking about it.

Truly sick. 4 cops with batons and probably tasers, yet they were incapable of keeping this dog at bay without shooting it. I hope there are repercussions.

The dog was aggressive and they didn't shoot it until the second time it tried to bite them. You can't leave dogs like that running around.

Really, I don't see how you can watch that video and not think the cop was justified in shooting the dog as it was literally jumping up to bite him.

They weren't justified in jamming the guy up in the first place.

Doesn't make any difference.

That was an unlawful arrest. That dog was not in any way trying to bite them. The officer shot the dog down without any attempt to restrain it. The cop was in no way justified.

There's no such thing as an unlawful arrest of a dog. C'mon.

Some of these cops make a pretty convincing case that when it comes to gun control cops are the only ones who shouldn't be allowed to have guns.

They'll get away with it because the dog was off leash and appeared to be aggressive. Of course that's what dogs tend to do when their owner gets fucked with. It certainly doesn't make what these assholes did right. They brought it on themselves by arresting someone for nothing just because they can. I'll bet they try to come up with some charge about being attacked by the owner's dog in a lame attempt to justify their poor behavior. I'm beginning to like the idea of videotaping every move cops make in public. We've all heard or been part of some story about cops and their abusive BS. The hell with the story here's the video. They don't like being videoed but that's just tough shit. Hey if you have nothing to hide then you have nothing to worry about right? That sounds so familiar doesn't it?

The man was unlawfully arrested.

I know what you meant; I was just having fun with you.

Other than the "but for" argument, I'm not sure what the legality of the arrest has to do with controlling the dog, though.

Watch out, if you film cops in public you may get threatened with violence by their union:

Quote:
During a recent interview with the local Fox affiliate, KTBC, Austin Police Association President Wayne Vincent issued what appeared to be a threat of violence against Antonio Buehler and the Peaceful Streets Project. This threat comes on the heels of the Peaceful Streets Project’s public announcement that they would increase downtown patrols to record Officer Nathan Wagner while on duty. Wagner is the APD cop that shot and killed Byron Carter in 2011.

“We fully are afraid that this thing is going to turn violent before it’s over because Buehler keeps escalating the harassment. Our officers are out there with absolutely no relief from this kind of harassment and it’s not going to end well,” Vincent said.

So the cops' version of the events it that there was an active standoff with armed robbers, and the guy drove up to it, put his radio on full blast, and took that big mean dog out and started walking it back and forth next to the cops.

Not at all clear that's an illegal arrest.

I still don't see how any of that is illegal.

Seems he was charged with obstruction because the police were trying to get someone to come out of the house and he was interfering with his music.

If the cop had a taser that would've been a better idea given that, well, everything else aside, shooting a gun and killing something while trying to calmly get someone out of the house is pretty counterproductive.
