WTF over-zealous police? - Page 27

post #391 of 6071
I think part of the punishment for all involved should be based on making it fit the crime.

They do that shit with the dog deliberately. Intentionally bring in the dog that gets false positives when they really want to search somebody, since the dog hitting counts as cause.

Well dogs are known to enjoy a little butt sniffing every now and then

I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy, but they definitely dirty. But a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

Has anyone ever challenged that the dog alerts on too many false positives and get the probable cause search tossed?

I wonder if Leo consulted on any Breaking Bad episodes?

Just watched some youtube videos of DUI check points. Some cops handle themselves very well and others act like a schoolyard bully that's getting defied by the class clown. When will these dumb fucks figure out the guy is probably baiting them and recording it for youtube?

I don't think it's the dogs fault. As the cop is circling the car all he has to do is tap the window, which the dog views as a command, and then the dog jumps onto the window. The officer then says, "Oh look, the dog sniffed drugs"

A lot of these dogs are trained in the German language and the handler can give a command that gets the dog to react as a positive hit when none exists. These fuckers have been caught doing it. Another good reason to video tape cops for sure.

I agree because the dog is probably smarter than the cop.

The dog is probably also less anally fixated than the cop, which is a pretty special situation in itself.

Often times they don't even need to make a physical gesture. Dogs are receptive to less obvious cues even when the cop doesn't do it intentionally.

Studies have shown bomb sniffing dogs in them military have a much higher accuracy rate because soldiers can't even inadvertantly give the dog cues, and the soldiers are more concerned about staying alive so prejudice has less effect on them.

Oh yes, quite often. In PA at least a drug dog positive is basically useless for probable cause. Cops still like using it because it intimidates the hell out of people and they more often than not wind up confessing rather than have the dog climb all through their car.

An Atlanta woman is grieving the death of her dog after police shot it while responding to an accidental 911 call.

Kelley Rodriguez said her niece made the call by mistake. When officers knocked on the door, her pit bull mix "Jane" ran outside her home on Grant Terrace in southeast Atlanta.

Police said the dog tried to jump on one officer and he shot it in the head.

Rodriguez said her dog was not trying to attack the officer.
