Warning: This video is very disturbing.
A Rottweiler was shot and killed by Hawthrone, California police officers as they arrested the dogs owner, Leon Rosby, on Sunday for obstructing justice at a crime scene, according to DailyBreeze.com. This disturbing video, captured with a cell phone camera, shows the dog, named Max, jumping through the open window of Rosby's car in an apparently effort to protect his owner as he is being placed in handcuffs. When the dog lunged at officers, four shots were fired, killing the dog on the street in front of several bystanders and his horrified owner. In an interview, Rosby said his dog was needlessly killed by officers.
