A California man was arrested in Hawthorne, California on June 30th when law enforcers apparently did not take kindly to him filming them as they were barricading a house.

The man's dog, seeing his owner being accosted, jumped from the car it was in and began to bark at the police.  After lunging towards one of the officers, the patrolman shot the dog to death in front of stunned witnesses in the middle of the street.
