Slow Motion and 2nd Angle of Hawthorne Police Officer Jeffrey Salmon shooting and killing a dog attacking the police.

Hear a lot about how the dog was peaceful. Well the officer was peaceful and trying to secure the dog by gathering it's leash. This is the point when the dog attacked the officer and was justifiably shot and killed.

The dogs owner has sued the police and lost in the past. He was obviously taunting officers for something to happen, probably not his dog getting shot but if he hadn't been playing games or at least rolled up his windows the dog wouldn't have attacked a police officer.

Here's a clip about the story:
HAWTHORNE, Calif. (KTLA) — The Hawthorne Police Department urged the public not to rush to judgement on Wednesday in the wake of a deadly dog shooting.

The department's chief of police Robert Fager said during a news conference that the three officers involved in the incident had been taken off of field duty because they received a series of death threats.

Fager also announced the department would investigate the dog shooting, which was caught on tape.

It all started when dog owner, Leon Rosby, took video of police officers outside a barricade in Hawthorne, about 15 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles, on Sunday.

Rosby, 52, was walking his Rottweiler, Max, and recording the stand-off with armed robbers on his cell phone camera.

As police approached Rosby, he could be seen placing his dog in his car and then putting his hands behind his back to be arrested.

As Rosby was being handcuffed, Max started barking and jumped out of the car.

When Max approached the officers, one of them shot him four times.

A bystander recorded video of the dog lunging at officers and being shot, then posted it on YouTube.
