1. Two YouTube videos show a man, identified by CBS as Leon Rosby, taking video of a SWAT team in Hawthorne, Calif.
2. In the video, Rosby is seen taking taking video of officers walking up the sidewalk. They then walk toward him and arrest him, and proceed fire their weapons on his dog.
3. [3:09] - As Rosby is arrested, his dog becomes agitated and leaps out of the window of his vehicle, running toward the police officers.
4. [3:23] - An officer fires his weapon four times at the rottweiler.
5. There is a third video showing what appears to be another angle of the same incident.
8. The report stated that the rottweiler was shot after one officer feared “that the attacking Rottweiler would imminently bite the officer(s)…”
9. Several small Facebook groups protesting the shooting have popped up in the last 24 hours.
13. Though that has yet to deter the torrent of angry users discovering the video.
