A trained attack dog is really no different than a trained attack human and considering it cannot communicate it's intentions to it's so called
handler in any direct and clearly understandable way it certainly shouldn't be magically protected by laws that protect it and it's handler from
liability when that trained thing does something that damages another.
I have a neighbor about 250 yards away from where I sit right now who has two dogs he claims are drug dogs or used by the K-9 guys or whatever, I
really think he's just a scaredy cat that tells stories to make himself feel safer from...whatever...
But this guy moves into a house directly adjoining the property I occupy and simply puts "beware of dog" signs out instead of putting up a fence while
he has some really big german shepherds wandering around his yard with his little kids playing there with no adult in sight whatsoever most of the
I have kept dogs for at least the past 20 years and know from experience they have bad days just like anything else, I have been bitten several times
by several different dogs over the years, and believe it or not, all of those bites were accidental as in if the dog was not on a leash tied to me I
would not have been bitten while the dogs fought with other dogs that were running free.
I don't care what kind of dog it is, the goddamned thing needs to be under control at all times and the department and handler of this dog should be
held fully accountable and liable for any damages arising from this incident, as my neighbor will be one way or the other if his dogs wander too far
and conduct themselves in a threatening fashion.
A dog without a human controller is a dog wandering around in a threatening fashion.
It's not like you can ask it what he or she is doing wandering around your space like you can a person now, is it?, but then you can go to prison for
life for defending yourself and your loved ones and property for dealing with it....
Things develop a taste for certain things after a time just like I did when I was in the military, which was the reason I got myself the hell out of
Some things are just so WRONG!!!....
Some police people have been killed when serving no knock warrants lately and the person was justified for the shooting in at least one case, maybe
this crazy stuff with police dogs being above reproach is about to change also, as it should be.
Another issue is it was a child that was injured, if it had been you or I the attack would have been justified, you or I would have been brought up on
some bogus charge to justify the dog attack somehow and charged with killing a police officer...
Then, another issue, how the # does one take the testimony of an entity that cannot communicate to the court in a suit or trial, is it secondhand
testimony of the handler who cannot possibly keep up with the canine when set free?.
