i can't get the video to work dear- i just looked at an article and it said the guy was yelling something to the cops?
i can't tell from the articles i find how close the dog got. if the dog was aggressive, and if the man was aggressive and yelling at the cops when he was filming them, their justification in shooting the dog may come from that. as cops, they have a human arrest to take care of, and no, the concern for the dog will be secondary if they perceive a thread. they can't have the dog distracting them from what the man was doing. the cops may like dogs just fine, but if the scene was chaotic, then they have to make a choice quickly. if the dog was barking and jumping around, then they probably didn't give a fuck, no.
I know that's probably not what you want to hear, but i can't say otherwise till i can watch/hear the video. do you know anything about why the SWAT team wanted at the house? that could be a potentially lethal situation. the cops have to give that their attention. they also probably didn't want the photography either, obviously.
I don't know, but it's been said: You do or don't and then you're dead
So climb away, get higher, son- never straight, just move ahead
Know, my child, that there is no devil seekin' to cause guilt in the hearts to men.
No evil, save blind faith, ignorance, and the desire for the unprepared to blame others for the devastation left in the wake of change.
Fear not the movement of the heavens above or the earth below for change is what we are, my child.
And if we are reflections of the divine we must roll with these changes, for we are these changes.
