Carlos Miller from the Photography Is Not A Crime blog has the story…

In one of the most shocking videos I’ve seen since launching this blog six years, ago, Hawthorne police shot and killed a dog while arresting the dog’s owner for video recording them from a half-block away on a public sidewalk.

Several cops were standing in front of a house halfway down the block, apparently to make an arrest over the weekend, while a man walking his dog was video recording them from the corner.


Call the Hawthorne Police Department: Call (310) 675-4443 or  (310) 349-2700.
