It does look very disturbing but, on the other hand, that was a Rottweiler dog, the kind that doesn't let go once it bites.

Excuse me, but that statement is full of sh1t, plain and simple. I've helped bite trained a dozen or more dogs, Rotties included. EVERY Rottie I worked with had an excellent release command. A couple of Shepherds that I worked with would not release under any circumstances. Both a GSD and a Malinois that I worked with had a tendency to try to bypass the sleeve and go for the agitator's face.

The movie "the Omen" has a graveyard scene where a guy is run down by a pack of Rotties and savaged. The reason they used Rotties was because they were the only ones stable enough to be trusted to do that sort of bite work and not hurt the actor.

Here in France such a dog is considered as a potentially deadly weapon.

ffs, in France, a Teacup Poodle is a deadly weapon.

Maybe these cops could have handled this better but I don't know how many brain cells they are required to have before they are let loose in the street.

The guy had a vendetta going with the cops. They punished him for that by shooting his dog, and letting it die in pain while he had to watch. Both sides are dickheads, the cops, however, are sadistic dickheads. They should lose their jobs over this, and the city should have to pay a hefty settlement.

They could have ignored the guy.

Always remember, whenever you declare someone the dumbest person on Earth, someone else will stare at their screen intently, cross their arms and say ‘Challenge accepted’.

You love dogs and know all about Rottweilers, wondeful.
In that case, you also know that a Rottweiler will back up, usually, provided he's been well trained, at his master's command and will ignore anyone else's commands.

In this case, he saw his master was being attacked and, he was free in his movements, he first tried to impress the enemy with barking, then he jumped out of the car and got as close as possible to try and scare the cops away with more barking.
Nothing worked so he went for his first jab at the closest cop, fatal error.

Rottweiler in people garden will, once in a while, jump the fence and attack people for no apparent reason, maybe the sense the fear people may have when they see him, it's possible.

I do not approve the way these cops acted, they had it all wrong, made all the mistakes they could, did not even put the dog out of his agony, basically, they acted like scum.
