captureIt’s a controversial video that’s gone viral: police in Hawthorne, California shot and killed a man’s dog last weekend and it was all caught on camera.

The man was out walking his Rottweiler when he saw police with some suspects. He started videotaping the scene, he says, to make sure that police weren’t violating civil rights. Then he says two cops walked toward him and cuffed him. That’s when the man’s Rottweiler jumped out of his car window.

Police say the dog was acting aggressively toward an officer.
