So no surprise the Canine Special Detail of the LA Sheriff's Department (LASD) is being fingered for a big spike in the number of Hispanics and Blacks bitten by police dogs since 2004.
Who says so? The Police Assessment Resource Center (Parc), an LA-based non-profit org devoted to “advancing effective and accountable policing”. The minority dog bites have allegedly gone up 35% and Parc says it's all about racism.
Do the dogs know the difference? Nah. But the goofs at Parc insist the cops are taking dogs into high crime areas where they know minorities live. Yet leave them in the car when they visit predominantly white-low-crime areas. Wow, that would be wrong?
Parc wants you to know that during the 1980s some LA cops allegedly referred to black kids as “dog biscuits”. So they want a 'policy change' in how the cops use their dogs.
What change would that entail? Maybe let the violent, truculent, ferocious, maniacal, frenzied, rabid, rapacious, lunatic, psychopathic, homicidal, savage, drug and race crazed black kids bite the cops instead?
