California Police Removed from Street Duty after Shooting Dog

HAWTHORNE, Calif. (AP) --
   Southern California police officials say they've pulled three officers from street duty after a widely circulated video showed an officer fatally shooting a Rottweiler and drew numerous death threats.
   Hawthorne police spokesman Lt. Scott Swain says the decision is for the officers' safety after the uniformed officer shot the dog four times on Sunday.
   A cellphone video that had more than 3.7 million views on YouTube by Thursday morning shows the dog, named Max, being shot after scrambling out of a car's back seat through a window and lunging at officers who had handcuffed its master.
   The dog's owner, Leon Rosby, says police needlessly killed his dog. His lawyer, Michael Gulden, said Rosby's complaint will be added to an existing lawsuit Rosby has against police.
