Hawthorne Police Shoot Dog
The reason I am uploading this is to spread the word about violence by police. It happens everyday. Recently, police brutality has been captured and noticed by people in more and more with video cameras. I respect all police officers and relize that they have a very difficult job to do with many quick decisions that have to be made. I encourage you to re-upload this video before it gets flagged or youtube takes it down. Tell your friends about what happened and show them this. I do not support what the police officer did in this video and felt that better decisions could have been made but I do not condone any hate towards him.
I am donating all the money made off of adds, in this video to my local animal shelter. I would encourage everyone to do the same and donate money to animal shelters, PETA ect.
Officer that shot the dog:
Lieutenant Scott Swain

Call Roderick Wright (your state senator). His office number in Sacramento is (916) 651-4035. Again, calmly explain to him about the video and tell him you want firm action.
Next, call assemblyman Steven Bradford. His office number in Inglewood is (310) 412-6400 or in Sacramento at (916) 319-2062.
