In the UK, the man would have been shot first and maybe the dog as well!

All they had to do was grab the dog by its collar, but no, they shot it three times Sad

Let's see,
Compton(or similar) neighbourhood, with a situation requiring strong police presesnce...
Dude with poorly trained status dog (would've stayed in car if trained better) phone filming the situation at close quarters...
Crowd of onlookers filming dude with staus dog, filming police
Crowd get excited as status dog escapes through car window to protect its provider/owner....

How many times do you get bitten whilst trying to control a rottweiler(nature/character unknown) by grabbing it by its collar?
Will it's owner be telling it to sit/be good etc whilst he is being arrested?

Or just not arrest the guy in the first place.

That's what comes of having an untrained possibly vicious dog as a fashion accessory, if I was the cop I'd have blown it's head off too and I'm a dog lover. However, I've also been a postman in the past and have been savaged by both a German Sheppard and a Rottie, the end result being both animals were destroyed........I blame the f***wit owner, who by his own stupid actions got the dog shot.....No sympathy whatsoever! Sorry Sad

Shocking and disturbing yes, questioning why the man was arrested yes, but I can see the shooting of the dog, whilst terrible, was something I could see as being justified in the circumstances.

I don`t know this all looks just so wrong to me, he put the dog in the car with the window wound down or partly wound down, as every dog owner should do.

The chap gets arrested and the dog runs to his aid, it wasn`t as if the dog was even biting as that stage.

Easy to say from the safety of a YouTube video but extremely dangerous and stupid in reality. I have a working cocker that has scared the life out of two burglars who didn't even feel able to grab him by the collar as he pinned them in a corner and he has a rather smaller but still extremely powerful set of jaws and sharp teeth. I wouldn't suggest anyone tries to grab a Rottweiler coming aggressively at them by its collar and probably something few people would be stupid or strong/lucky enough to manage in the split second heat of the moment. Even had he got its collar it could easily respond by biting into his arm as he held the collar.

If I'd been the Policeman, I'd have shot it too.

The fact that it took 3 shots to down it shows that grabbing its collar would have been a suicidal thing to do... the officer did the right thing.

Why 'wrong'... He was arrested (very questionable as to why but that isn't the issue). He left the dog in the car but didnt close the windows enough to stop the dog getting out (leave window open for ventilation but not enough to allow dog to get out - simple). the dog did get out. The dog approached with aggression. Made one aggressive attack at the officer, the second was more so, as a jump up to waist/chest height and was shot immediately. I love dogs, have bred GSD's and had many large breeds so I feel the shooting is very regretful and upsetting to see but understandable. Had he secured his dog it would never have happened.

The dog was secured, in his car.

Wrong, Paul. He used 2 seconds to put the dog in the car, all windows were fully wound down, and appeared to make no attempt to secure it. The dog jumped out the car window, dragging its lead behind.

Very regrettable outcome, but inevitable under the circumstances.

In what way was the dog 'secured' in the car? The guy put the dog on the back seat, doing nothing more than throwing the lead in after it, and left the windows open
