    Should Police Use Dogs To Attack Suspects?

    If the police can't keep their inanimate guns in their holsters, I wouldn't be the first to think they can keep potentially viscous dogs on their leashes.

      So your idea of police having a weapon or using a dog for protection and to counter a threat is to NEVER use them?The media headline u crave is"the murderer shot the cop dead but kudos to him,his gun was still in his holster&dog on leash?

      I do have to wonder what context you thought I said this under.

      Context?I think U believe that America is in the grip of an unprecedented crime wave,police committing wanton murder,randomly gunning down innocent unarmed people,blacks,teens,just for sport.Am I right?Sure sounds like that's ur context.

      It helps to ask things before assuming Tsad.

      No, I dont think it's as prevalent as that, but I do think it's prevalent enough that it should cause concern.

      Wrong,965 killed by police in 2015,w/Population 318 mil.,1000deaths at by police=1in318,000.U have a better chance of being killed in a violent storm(1in68,000)or slipping in the tub(1in11,500)than being shot by a cop.U insult good cops.

      Lol, the fact that murders by cops happen at all is what insults good cops Tsad, not me being wary if the cop i might need in times of stress is a trigger happy lunatic.

      A few bad apples and all that...

      Really, Link?You call cops killing in self defense,shooting criminals with cause to protect citizens, murder?More than 95 percent of all police involved shootings were ruled administratively and legally justiified.Of the 965, that leaves 48!

      On those965killed,only90were unarmed,&the majority of those were white.(that doesn’t take account other extenuating circumstances besides a weapon that would have caused a cop to fire)these incidents don’t prove the “real problem” is cops.

      So what world do you live in that anyone thinks cops shouldn't use their weapons to stop crime and criminals which by any measure is the only thing they do.Bad cops should be investigated and tried but they are rare exceptions to the rule

      and no reason for a reasoning person to act like, and say cops can't keep their guns in their holsters. You're statement and you have shown you think police commit wanton murder,randomly gunning down innocent unarmed people or you would

      never have made such an unfounded and frivolous statement about the vast majority of officers who put their lives on the line daily to protect ingrates like you.

      Can you tell me where I said cops killing in self defense/protecting citizens equates to murder? Because by definition thats obviously not murder.

      This is why I think you're delusional sometimes Tsad, you read random crap I never say or even imply.

    No, because the dogs can do serious damage to suspects who don't deserve it as well as innocent bystanders.
