Exactly. How many people have said, that handcuffing a person if he is suspected to harm others, is allowed in USA? Pretty damn many. How he was "harming the others"? Not directly in any way, but still listening loud music near a police operation and going too near the police perimeter. He wasn't cuffed because of the filming itself, but the area he was doing it.
|The dog's owner was standing right there, and there was no problem at all until the cop moved towards the dog.|
The owner indeed was standing there. He doesn't seem to do a thing in the situation. He could have also said to the cops to let him handle the dog. And the dog was already there, not in the place is was supposed to be.
|he created the entire situation.|
As someone said, it was a clusterf*ck of events which led to dog being shot.
|The "he was acting under pressure" argument doesn't work when there was no pressure to speak of.|
Yeah, being in a middle of police operation while two of your colleagues handcuff a man, whose rottweiler decides to go after his owner. Nothing special.
|it is still 100% the fault of the police for approaching him|
Mind asking, but why you think so? As said, owner seems not to even try to do a thing, and the dog shouldn't be left alone on the streets. Especially if there are police operationrs just across the street. He tried to grab the dog, though doing it way too rapidly, and that gave the dog enough reason to go for the police.
