That was a pretty slick/sick movie.

Bet he thought the canine was a hot dog.

I find that staring contests are more fun.

Dogs are moral creatures.

That the police use them is no reason to besmirch the good name of Dog by calling them police officers.

Dog Bites Man, Man Bites Dog Back
Dog re-bites man, man sues dog, dog countersues

NEW YORK (API)--A pedigreed Afghan hound named Seamus, 3, bit his owner, Paul Clifford, 35, on the hand today, allegedly for startling the dog while brushing its hair. Clifford, a freelance carpet layer, responded by biting Seamus's left haunch.
"You've got to let a dog know who's the Alpha," said Clifford. "Otherwise, next thing you know, they're sneaking up on you in your sleep. You can't have that."
Using the only defense he knew, Seamus bit Clifford once again, this time on the neck. According to the attending physician at the surgical center where Clifford was treated, the wound was "nasty, but not life-threatening."
The fracas occurred at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show as Clifford was preparing Seamus for the Sporting Dogs portion of the competition. Witnesses included local representatives of the animal-rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, as well as Candace Fitzgerald, a spokeswoman for human-rights group FEDUP. (FEDUP is not an acronym; according to their Web site the name reflects their attitude toward "uppity dogs.") 
Shortly after onlookers broke up the fight by throwing buckets of cold water onto the combatants, Fitzgerald approached Clifford, offering to "make that son of a biatch pay" for what he'd done.
Using her laptop computer and preprinted forms, Fitzgerald filed a lawsuit with the New York County Court, seeking compensation from Seamus for medical expenses and emotional trauma, plus unspecified punitive damages.
PETA, predictably, sided with Seamus, suing Clifford on similar grounds and filing a restraining order requiring him to stay at least 500 yards from the dog.
"Stay. Stay," read a portion of the restraining order.
Clifford and Fitzgerald predicted they would be victorious in the pending court battle. "We aren't going to just roll over for these (people), said Fitzgerald.
Seamus could not be reached for comment. According to his PETA spokesperson, he is being taught both self-defense and a taste for steamed vegetables.

I'm ok with this...

I don't really care whether we treat K-9s as dogs or as people, so long as we're consistent about it.

If we're going to treat them as dogs, then it's reasonable to bite them back.

If we're going to treat them as people, then a K-9 biting a suspect is prima facie brutality.

But treating them as dogs when they do something vicious but treating them as people when people defend themselves against a vicious animal is unconscionable bullshiat.

I'm sorry, since when is it reasonable to bite dogs back?

Believing O'Malley was going to assault him, Deputy Fisher released Murphy, who "took hold of the defendant's arm."

Presumably with his paws or something, then?

How about, "when it became reasonable to use them not only as olfactory detectors, but as  defacto 'weapons' as well"? As somebody upthread pointed out, it's complete duplicitous bullshiat to treat dogs as mere possessions when the police shoot yours, but as "people" when you defend yourself from theirs.

I guess the guy wanted to sober up by hair of the dog?

Oh look at that. In an instance where the cops didn't do anything illegal, the body cameras were rolling and the footage wasn't lost or corrupted. Fancy that.
 
2018-03-22 10:36:17 AM  
Use a version of the "stop resisting!" scheme.
yell "I surrender!" after which you, having surrendered, can do anything back to the dog necessary to stop its now unnecessary assault.
 
2018-03-22 10:43:50 AM  
They should switch to puppies. Anyone who isn't immediately overcome with 'D'awww' and surrenders in order to play with said puppies is an evil monster and should be tazed into submission.

I resent humans using dogs as their meat shields. But then I'm not a police officer facing down an enraged junkie.
I don't dislike dogs and would hate to be a police officer working with a k9 unit, I imagine there's quite a bond, I can imagine losing my sh*t if anyone struck the dog.

I care more about the dog than the police...

They should try using police cats.
Police officer:"take down that suspect, officer cat!"
Police cat: *licks own arse then walks off*

We used to make those 'Dead Baby Boy' drinks, back in college.  Good times.

He bit him right on body cam footage?  That's the most sensitive part of a dog.

The only problem I see here is you don't really have the legal right to defend yourself from police during a legitimate arrest. There are some general exceptions to the rule which are typically highly situational, but in general cops have the greater authority and duty to use force to gain compliance in order to arrest.

So if a k-9 unit is considered a cop then his training to bite your arm to take you down is a legitimate use of force that you do not have a right to defense against. However, if the dog is going for the throat, which would fall under excessive force exception, you would have the right to defend yourself. This is why the guy's getting charged with 'striking a police animal.'

I was watching Cops the other night (yes it's still on the air.. 30th season now I think) and some guy hit the police dog who was "apprehending" the man and he was charged with assaulting a police officer. I don't remember which jurisdiction though.

Amazing how those body cameras only work when the cops need them to.

Police dogs are trained to bite and hold on to arms and legs to slow/tackle the suspect. If they get the arm torn away from their grip, they will bite again until told to heel. Police dogs don't just bite anywhere.
