That's exactly what I was thinking....Thought it was the Onion or something.
From the Article:
Police dogs in New England are being trained to sniff out child pornography as state police in Massachusetts and Rhode Island fight back against a
growing network of traffickers, according to the Providence Journal. Smart pups, like Thoreau, a golden Labrador who trained at the Connecticut State
Police Training Academy for 22 weeks, can pinpoint hard drives, thumb drives and other technological devices that may be hidden in a home.
They can find anything with a Memory Stick.
Given to the state police by the Connecticut State Police, the dog assisted in its first search warrant in June pinpointing a thumb drive containing
child pornography hidden four layers deep in a tin box inside a metal cabinet. That discovery led the police to secure an arrest warrant, state police
Cpl. Eric Yelle says. “If it has a memory card, he’ll sniff it out,” Det. Adam Houston, Thoreau’s handler, says. At times, child
pornographers hide devices in ceiling tiles or even radios.
I didn't realize all memory sticks must contain Child Porn.
There are lots of reasons people may not want the Cops to search all their devices.
However, people may not like this. So they scream it's for Child Porn.
Strawman much ?
I hope they catch every single pervert out there.
But teaching Service Dogs to retrieve all the Memory Sticks in a Home.
Seems to me this has very little to do with Child Porn.
