I saw this video on the morning news out of Chicago.
I live about 40 miles away from the the town of Hammond, IN.
A Hammond Police K-9 officer was placed on administrative leave this week after YouTube video surfaced of the officer apparently abusing his
police dog. The video posted Wednesday shows an officer using a leash to lift the dog to its hind legs, then striking the dog's middle section with
what appears to be another leash. He then lifts the dog into the air by the leash and the dog is seen swinging around once.
The dog is struck another time before being directed back to the squad car.
Yes...this describes it exactly.
"At this time, the Department has observed behavior by the K-9 handler that appears to be inconsistent with acceptable training guidelines," the
I work in a prison and I see the handlers, assigned to the DOC K-9 unit, work with their dogs...I cannot say I have seen them handle their dogs in
such a manner...
But does the video depict abuse?

Does the video depict abuse? Is that even a question here really? Let me do that to you once, and you can tell me for sure if that's abuse or not.
The cop needs the same thing done to him so he knows what it feels like.
