"Leon Rosby arrived at 137th Street and Jefferson Avenue in Hawthorne on Sunday evening to videotape a police standoff. He brought along his 2-year-old Rottweiler, Max.
He put the dog on a leash and began filming. Hawthorne police deemed Rosby's actions interference and placed him under arrest. By this point, Max was in the backseat of Rosby's car, but the arrest upset him. He began barking, jumped out of the car and lunged at officers."*
Leon Rosby was cuffed by Hawthorne police officers after recording them with his phone. Then, when his dog jumped and ran to Rosby and the officers, the officers shot the dog in the head, leaving it writhing in the street until its death. Was the shooting necessary? Were the officers' excuses justifiable? Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and the TYT Supreme Court weigh in on the situation.
