Cops Shoot Dog On Camera

This video has been getting a lot of views and discussion:

It is part of a trend of 'citizen surveillance' where people record video of the police. This is one of the most difficult cases I have seen, because even with the video one can make arguments both ways.

On the one hand, they shot a dog, which is pretty bad. On the other hand, it was a rottweiler that was lunging forward, defending its owner. The owner, knowing the police were coming for him, put the dog in his car but left the windows down. However, the dog owner was being arrested for either obstruction (yelling at the officers at a crime scene) or playing his music too loud, which are too terribly serious offenses.

What do you think? Who's right? Either way, grey area, highly publicized cases like this are going to become more prominent with mobile phone video recording.
