Why was the idiot there in the first place ? If it is his neighborhood shouldn't he be concerned about his neighbors instead of what color the police are? Are black cops different than white cops? They are all trained the same so who cares about color? Why is he bugging cops while they have such a high strung situation going on? Couldn't he have taped the cops without all the drama? It seems to me that people who are overly dramatic like that are trying to draw attention away. Was he trying to help the offender in the house somehow? He might have been legal to be there but it was not reasonable! He was up to no good. His lack of respect and his stupidity brought this upon himself. You can act any way you want BUT there are always consequences. The dog owner put his dog in the car and he did not secure his dog. I think he was trying to bait the police into some kind of action and it backfired on him

It is clear that the cop murdered the dog who was just wanting to get back to his owner. Max is clearly NOT vicious but after what that scum did I wish he would have taken a chunk of him.The cop deserves it and worse. Cops get away with this all the time. They just have to say " O my I was scared for my safety". That is a bunch of crap. Those scum wanted to kill something and if they hadnt been doing something wrong then they wouldnt of had to worry about being video taped. This man is now without his beautiful dog because of SCUM with a badge that think its ok to kill. I cannot wait to hear that "What comes around, goes around" is in full effect and they pay for what they did. I dont care even if he did interfer,and he did not. They didnt have the right to murder Max.
To those who blame Max's owner,remember that it is better to be thought a fool than to open your mouths and remove all doubt.

This police department is out of control! I hear they even brought back some officers that were fired for brutality and the city paid out millions because of these officers.
How about the man with dog was out of control! Just what did he hope to accomplish acting like that?

Iowa here. Posted to Facebook and everyone is disgusted by it. Cops will never get respect. You give none to others. You abuse your power and you're above the law. You make me want to puke. Just disgusting. If you didn't have your badge you wouldn't be nothing but criminals. What am I saying. You are criminals.
You make me proud to be from Iowa... Yep those cops are scum and they are nothing more than criminals with badges. Max is dead now because of that scum. I hope those involved with Max's murder loose everything

If those racist white officers are not severely disciplined by the city immediately, then people need to support this man in bringing an action against the city. Those so-called offers should not be in a position of power. It is not obstruction of justice to video the police on a public street. Don't just complain; take action
How about the racist black man with the dog? He was the only one I heard saying anything racist!
Maybe the police were already familiar with this guy. Maybe the idiot had a warrant out for his arrest. Maybe he was trying to draw the police to keep them from seeing something else? Why was he soooo dramatic?
Makes no sense

Seriously you have got to be joking. Max was murdered by scum. He was not out of control. They arrested his owner because they were doing things they didnt want videoed and now his dog is dead because of the city of Hawthorne.Max wanted to get back to his owner. I sincerely hope that the cops pay for what they did and have horrible lonely lives. They didnt have the right to kill Max. Just imagine this. What if that was his human son doing the same thing. You wouldnt be blowing of at the mouth then. Its the same thing

Oooo the Hawthorn Cop Trolls are out in force. You people are sick and perverted - a sorry POS of a police department. You will circle the wagon for each other as you are protected- we the citizens are NOT-
None of you arguments hold a ounce of water. So what if they knew the guy?
I hope you all have a horrible life and I encourage Americans everywhere to start standing up and take back this country from the FACISTS running it with guns and badges- like that is something special. You are scum and the sooner the people rise up against you the better.

Killing pets today- killing your kids tomorrow- this is the way FASCISTS operate- stop them now or forever live in fear and slavery- without the laws of our Constitution to protect you. Take back your Country people.

Don't blame the cops. They are trained to disregard life, rights and human dignity. It's the system!:-(

Interesting to see all the hawthorn cop trolls on this site defending the cops.
Maybe u guys need to see what we in the rest of the civilized world see- you are out of control criminal thugs serving and protecting yourselves and your masters.
I hope you who defend this horrific act die a horrible death.
I don't know what world you live in but thankful I am no where near it! Not a cop troll but a reasonable person concerned that there are too many people like you out there in space somewhere.

No he was owned by scum that had no respect for his dog's life. Total disrespect to his dog. He should have put his dog first and took him away from there! Dogs are like family members, children our kids. Would you take your child to a police standoff? I think not because it would be irresponsible.
Mr.Rosenby is an irresponsible pet owner and should be charged for leaving his baby in a car alone, for endangering the animal, and not following the police instructions to get back from the standoff.
Oh yea. Why arent you upset about the family involved in the standoff? What about the poor victims of that persons crime? so much more to be concerned about than this idiot who failed to take responsibility for his beautiful pet.

How about the police were trying to keep the man from getting too close. They didn't arrest anyone else recording the scenario. Everyone else was recording further away. Everyone else did not act stupid and disrespectful. If the police are so trigger happy why didn't they shoot the criminal instead of having a standoff? Your reasoning does not ring true. Get some counseling for all the very angry issues you seem to have.

I don't know what video some of the morons on here watched. I clearly saw the dog lunge at the officer. You need to blame the idiot that owns the dog.

Have that cops been arrested already? Or they're still allowed to kill defenseless dogs, while the owner and other people, including children, watching? To cuff innocent people, that only taping them? I'm from Russia, we also face police cruelty almost every day, but this case is extraordinary... The sheer enormity of the crime... Why this, I just can't call IT "man", allowed to carry weapon? The dog wasn't trained to attack people or something like that - it's obvious - he was just barking and hanging around not understanding what's going on, while his master had been arrested for nothing. Is that pure American Democracy?!

Those pigs were itching to kill something. I bet that cop felt like a tough guy half killing a dog.

The cop couldn't even get a clean kill at close range. What a loser.
