  •  The officer reached out towards the dog, (4+ / 0-)

    then the dog lunged and then the officer quickly shot the dog several times. The cop (or another) said that he was reaching for the dog's leash. Dumb move, IMO.

    I don't think that Rosby or that cop displayed common sense.

      But i don't think this is a clear cut case of racial profiling or police brutality. there are plenty of those to go around.

        I do think it's a clear cut case of bad judgement by Rosby and by the cop who shot the dog. Make that cops, plural, because I don't believe that Rosby deserved arrest although he did appear to me to be borderline taunting, and he did refuse (with expletive) to turn down his radio.

          radio. Sorry to point out that the cops in the middle of an arrest should attend to their business. His radio was none of theirs.

          What right do they have to base this whole incident on the guy's radio? Nothing.

          A true craftsman will meticulously construct the apparatus of his own demise.
