They could have gone with Pepper or the Taser.

In fact it looked to me as if one of the officers tried pepper spray to no immediate effect.

They could have and should have let the owner loose to deal with the dog. It's not as if they busted him for a crime.

Actually, the dog owner was arrested for obstruction of justice. The police were involved into a tense standoff with an armed robber and some victims inside the building.

The dog owner pulled up with his windows open and loud music blasting from his stereo. When asked to turn it down (the cops needed to hear what was happening inside the building), he cursed (it's my f... stereo), got out from the vehicle and proceeded to film the officers - without shutting off the music.

The man has a history of run-ins with police.

The dog died for an offence of having an irresponsible owner.

Chato already ruled on this and decided the guy was perfectly within his rights to be pacing about like that, "challenging" the officers. You know, that's just what cops need is some worthless cretin fvkc to make their jobs more challenging.

What law did the guy break?

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’.

"The crime of obstruction of justice, in United States jurisdictions, refers to the crime of interfering with the work of police, investigators, regulatory agencies, prosecutors, or other (usually government) officials. Common law jurisdictions other than the United States tend to use the wider offense of perverting the course of justice."
