What a waste of a good police dog.

OK it sounds like to me at the end he said something like only 2 were suppost to open up and instead everyone opened fire on that bitch. Another thing they shot there own dog before the dog really even reaches him. Also do think he tried to drop the gun before the dog even got there or was it the shots that made him dropp it. I think he was going to drop that gun right as the dog got close to him. I call this guy a bluff. He wasnt going to shot the dog. Or maybe he did shot the dog but it didnt appear that way to me. To me it look like the damn cops not only fired way to soon but they also killed there own dog. Or am i just to fucked up and totaly wrong with what happen in this video?

I saw this video on another site. The deceased was named Deandre "Trey" Brunston, and the shooting occured in Compton CA on August 24, 2003. However, all the Yahoo and Google searches I've done only come up with websites against the cops. I can't seem to find any news stories about the incident. While I'm incredibly pro-cop, I do have to wonder why so many shots were fired (some of the anti-cop websites say 80+ rounds were fired and Brunston was hit 20+ times), why they fired after the dog was released, and why the cops didn't try a taser or pepper spray. (Apparently Brunston wasn't armed, though he may have been holding an object resembling a gun.) As I said, I tend to side with the cops on this one, but I'd like to know the full story.

Like that Vegas chock slam vid, when a cop tells you something, just fucking do it..... black people listen up.

hear me out. I think the Police were really tring to protect the dog. We all know that shooting a cop dog is like shooting a human cop LAW wise. I think the police were so convinced he was going to shot the dog that when he releases the dog they open fire before the dog got there to protect the dog. Having said that that BLUFF just cost him big time. I think he was going to drop the gun once the dog got close to him and it looks like he appeared to do so. The Cops were just trying to protect the dog thinking he was going to shot.

Deandre Brunston

Los Angeles, August 2003

Cops Shoot Man and Dog-- Rush Dog to the Hospital

Deandre Brunston, whose nickname was Trey, was a 24 year old African-American. On Sunday, August 24, 2003, a gang of LA County Sheriffs shot him to death on the front stoop of a tiny apartment in a dirt-poor section of Los Angeles called Willowbrook.

Earlier this year, Trey enrolled in a drug treatment program. He went for a couple of weeks but he couldn't hang with it and soon dropped out. The Sheriffs claimed that Trey "had an outstanding arrest warrant for narcotics." Nicole said that if the Sheriffs had arrested Trey, he would have been referred back to the treatment program and not sent to prison.

On the day he was killed, Trey was unusually angry about something. Around 7 pm, he argued with both Nicole and his girlfriend Fonda. The conflict escalated and got physical. He punched Nicole who called the Sheriff to report the assault. Ninety minutes passed and the cops had not shown up. Nicole, eight months pregnant, started feeling sick. Nicole had forgotten about calling the cops by then and called the paramedics instead. When an ambulance arrived, so did the Sheriffs. The Sheriffs went to an apartment across the way where Trey's aunt lives. Nicole's daughter told the cops that he had gone over there after leaving Nicole's place. Trey must have seen the cops coming because he jumped out of an upstairs window and ran down the street. A grip of Sheriffs with their guns drawn were close behind.

Trey ran down a driveway toward some tiny apartments down the block. Latino immigrants stayed in all of these places. Trey stopped on the porch in front of one apartment and witnesses said they thought he tried to talk to the people inside. But they spoke Spanish and Trey spoke English. All the while, more and more Sheriffs kept showing up. A helicopter overhead ordered people in Spanish to go back into their homes. The cops said that Trey "barricaded himself on the porch of a nearby home" and "told the deputies that he had a gun and threatened to kill them." But the porch in front of the tiny apartment was barren. There was no railing, no furniture, no items of any kind that could be used in a desperate attempt to shield oneself from guns of the police. Trey was surrounded and completely exposed to the cops.

Meanwhile, a Sheriff interviewed Nicole at a nearby hospital. He asked Nicole if she knew someone named Deandre Brunston. He said that Deandre had two guns and they had already taken one away from him. Nicole told the cop that there was no way that her friend had a gun. She heard cops talking on the radio about a man on a porch. She told the cop again and again, "he has no gun." Then Nicole heard a voice on the radio say a "man was down." One cop had a dog. The cops used the dog to attack Trey and then shot Trey many, many times. In this hail of police bullets, the cops also shot their own dog. The front of tiny apartment was left pockmarked with bullet holes.

Neighbors saw the cops dragging Trey down the dirt driveway. One man offered to help the cops carry him, but they told everyone to get back in the house. All of this has weighed heavily on neighbors who speak fearfully about what they had seen. Then the Sheriffs added further outrage to this cruel act of police brutality: a medivac helicopter landed nearby and the Sheriffs carried the dog to the helicopter and rushed it to a veterinarian hospital. They left Trey to lie in the dirt by that tiny apartment until 5 am the next day.

Real nice, why not just attach a fucking grenade to the dog? You are sending the dog in right when you open fire. Idiots.

Stephen, are you just saying stupid things for the sake of it?
you're saying you can tell it was a gun, while it was being thrown from a distance and at speed?
you only see the gun for 10 frames at 25fps! to say you can tell it's a gun from that is ridiculous.

For me that seems WAY TOO TRIGGER HAPPY on part of the cops. The tactics seem extremley poor. Why wouldnt they have a more systematic approach to this? This was a waste of a dog and a mans life. Seriously tragic police work.
The cops should get the blame.

The stupid animal deserved it (Guy not dog). He had his chance to give up and live. The world is a better place without this guy. Pleased the dog's ok though.

if they would have waited until the dog was actually released onto the guy before shooting they would have found out pretty quickly if he REALLY did have a gun or not... someone got trigger happy tho

How about the cops aim better? They are trained for a lot of shit but apparently not how to shoot a gun.

red23 what Im saying is it appears more like a gun from far away them up close. Up close u have more of argument that it wasnt a gun from that shitty ass picture u spent ur time on. WTF

Yeah.. i have no clue why they shot. it also looks like he tosses something away when they start to shoot, and it does kind of look like a gun.

The cops shouldnt have shot, but the guy shouldnt have said he was going to shoot.

The cops and the victim in this video are both to blame. If that dumbshit wasn't sitting there holding a gun (assumption which is probably correct, he threw a VERY gun-resembling item away (why the fuck was he hiding it/something in the first place? Better to over-estimate than under)) he wouldn't have gotten shot, and if the cops weren't so eager to pump him full of lead, they would've saved the 60+ rounds they missed with, and a police dog.

I have an idea. If a suspect fails to cooperate, let's yell at him, release a dog, and shoot them both.

Suspect's fault for hiding something (pretty much anything, whatever it was got him killed and he was very much aware of the situation to play innocent), cops fault for being so fucking trigger happy. But if you DO watch it carefully, they don't "really" open it up until after he throws the gun away -- towards them -- which can be interpreted as a very hostile action.

These cops did the right thing, the guy keeps on telling them that he was going to shoot if they release the dog. So they released the dog and shot him (and the dog) before he can shoot back at them. Now this is textbook opperation from my point of view. The cops go back home to take care of their loved ones,they get a new dog,and one stupid crackhead is out of here. What you guys are complaining for?
Its not because its violent that its necessarly cops abuse or brutality.

Hey RED23 u dumbfuck. I never said it was or if it wasnt. That was supposed to be the point of ur GENIUS pic that only mixed things up more u tard. So dont put words in my mouth. I made it very clear that I wasnt sure what it was and ur pic if it did anything it drove me to think it wasnt a gun. Ur so god damn smart why u try and figure out a way to make the picture clearer.

Stephen, you're rapidly becoming mucho's general prick, taking over from where JONNYCHO left off.
ok, this is where i make you look like the little n00b cunt you really are:

"I never said it was or if it wasnt"

well, read this you "dumbfuck":

"Also do think he tried to drop the gun"
"it looked more like a gun frm far away"
"Im saying is it appears more like a gun from far away"

in another forum this exact debate was going on, and you're the only one moaning about the pic!
now stfu you reposting annoying little twat.

Waste of a life, the cops could have handled that so much better, i dont know why but i really feel sorry for that dude and his unborn child who will grow up without a father. Fuck the medivac for the dog , how can any resanable person say a muts life is worth more than a human.

Most cops are scumbags.
