Just like to see what people think on this scenario as to whether morally, this is police assaulting the public or not?
If you touch a police officer, I mean just lay a hand on not, hit/punch/slap/strike you can be charged with assault.
If you pull away from a police officer even without hitting/punching/slapping/striking the police officer, you can be charged with resisting the police.
Police dogs are actually considered as police officers. In such that if you were to say kick a police dog you could be charged with assaulting the police as if you had assaulted an actual human officer.
Now police dogs can sniff a person all over even as to shove their noses in your private parts, poking their pointed snouts in roughly as to sometimes causing injury to said private parts.
Now If a person were to go up to a police officer & sniff the officer all over & shove their noses in their private parts, poking their noses in roughly as to causing injury to said private parts, they would be charged with assaulting a police officer.
Does this possible injury caused by the police dog, morally constitute assault by the police?
If not ,shouldn't the police dog handler be held accountable, as the public can be for their pet dogs' behaviour?edit on 3-12-2010 by acrux because: (no reason given)
