Who could have foreseen that a dog named "Nitro" might have some obedience issues?

They gave the dog to another agency. So basically, they just ignored the problem and moved it elsewhere

/are these guys Catholic?

Could be an American Gladiator dog.

My ex-husband has a dog named Nitro. It's a Pomeranian. Aside from some severe house training issues, he is not a vicious or disobedient little thing.

Back in the day, it was so simple.
Dog bites kid, dog goes "to the farm".
No exceptions, no excuses. Gene pool cleaned just like that.

Dog tears kid's shirt sleeve?  That isn't a bite.

I was petting a police dog once when it snapped at me and ever so slightly bit my hand. I was working in fast food at the time, so I put his aggression down to the fact that I smelled like french fries.
 
2013-03-09 04:08:11 PM  
So the headline has almost no relevance to the story. Nice.
 
2013-03-09 04:13:11 PM  
Now, assaulting a police dog is charged as "Assaulting an officer."

If you are mauled by a police dog, it should, as such, be handled as an excessive force and violation of rights issue.

/Both ways?
//No, you shouldn't have it.

Balogna!

Any well trained dog knows NOT to attack unless so ordered. A well trained dog will sit through a war and not give a shiat.

Has nothing to do with what you smelled like, and everything to do with piss poor police dog training.

FTA: The police department took Nitro off duty and arranged for a probe.

"Assaulting a police officer" and "assaulting a police dog (or horse)" are two distinctly different crimes.  Animals can't be charged with crimes.  Human handlers can be charged with using animals to commit crimes.

dog's son is a politician>>> makes no sense
 
2013-03-09 05:16:47 PM  
So move him into an unnamed unit so he can bite someone else without recourse. Awesome. fark these dickholes.

also...
"Dog tears kid's shirt sleeve?  That isn't a bite. "

It is if it was done with the dog's mouth nitwit. FTFA: police K-9 Nitro unexpectedly bit 8-year-old Ryan Holmes and tore the youth's T-shirt.

should have taken hydrocodone
cops LOVE that shiat, especially the 10/325's
cause less APAP for their livers

Police dogs used to be named doggy names like Roscoe or Buster or Champ. Now they have American Gladiator kind of names to intimidate Members of the Public.

Police dogs are pretty brutal and have no discretion- just bite snap chew

/love dogs, "police" dogs not so much-

snocone: "also...Dog tears kid's shirt sleeve?  That isn't a bite. "

Agreed DNRTFA-


lavender wolf: Now, assaulting a police dog is charged as "Assaulting an officer."Yup. So, spitting has become felony assault- crazy
 
2013-03-09 06:22:27 PM  
I used to cxomplain mightily about the fact that they passed laws that treated police dogs as actual police officers... human polic officers...

But, then I read some of the articles over the past 10-15 years, and now I understand. It is not about raising the dogs up to the human level, its lowering the expectations of the quasi-human people to the leve of the dogs...

/for all the rabid cop-lovers out there, please get a sense of humor... this was a joke...
//sort of...

Kid probably wouldn't have been bit at all if his father hadn't voted against the K9 program.

It's just an example of what happens when you don't vote the way you're told...

I'll wait for the part where you explain where I actually said prosecute an animal.

Good point.
To the public this is "undisciplined."
To the police, "discipline" means nothing more than kicking maximum ass on behalf of the state.

NutWrench: Who could have foreseen that a dog named "Nitro" might have some obedience issues?


And, true to form, the cops rallied around a fellow cop and ensured he was reassigned - after all, it's not his fault, right?

The naming convention for policedogs is kind of like lot numbers. "Nitro" came from Lot "N".

That is quite common amongst kennel clubs around the world.

Gershado was one of my favourite dogs when I was a child.
7th litter of the kennel.

Naming a dog after an explosive is a touch provocative but no big deal, just a sign of the overall national culture.

FTFA " Larry Holmes then called for Nitro's dismissal and termination of the program. "
This is counter productive.

// Dogs make better cops than humans usually.
// No offense intended ... to the dogs
/ .. or to the cops (Ive spent time with a lot of police dogs, they are some of the best dogs in the world, intelligent, agile, obedient, and very much loved and cared for by their trainers)

Maybe Nitro was named for nitrous oxide. He sounds like a gas!

Well, obviously they have to take the dog off duty.  He bit a government official's son for Chrissakes!  The dogs aren't supposed to bite government officials or their family members, they're supposed to bite poor people.  Jeesh!
