QOTD: Bork Bork Nom Nom

 

“I don’t know about you guys, but I think the 70lb landshark filled with sharp teeth and aggression is pretty good backup.” -Donut Operator

One of my favorite YouTubers is the former police officer who goes by the handle Donut Operator.  Donut does regular police recaps sometimes deadly serious, other times really funny.  His takes on K-9 units are mostly in the latter territory.  This is one of the more CoC-friendly videos of police dogs in action, and it is pretty funny to watch a crazy junkie get used as a chew toy.

He has a few other videos with funny commentary, with K-9 “translation”, but be warned that there is ample use of arresting language.   “That guy smells like methamphetamine and bad choices.”   or Deploy the fur missile!

One of the things I’ve learned is police officers deal with the craziest parts of society, people at their worst and best, they outright hilarious to nightmarish tragedy.   With all of this, it is good to have a partner to count on, regardless of whether they are on two legs or four legs.

If any of Ricochet’s law enforcement community has some good K-9 stories, feel free to post them below.

    I didn’t see a clear “mug shot” but it looks to be a very racist dog.

    I am not a police officer. I do not have first hand police K9 stories, but I have seen a number of videos of the ends of car chases (so I’m an expert, right? Ha!). If the police have been chasing a suspect for a while, it seems there is often a K9 unit there. I have seen a few suspects bolt on foot. Those dogs are fast! You are not going to outrun a police dog. When the suspect surrenders peacefully, the dog being held on the perimeter of the action looks disappointed that he didn’t get to play. His tail wagging diminishes and he gets this posture of disappointment that he didn’t get to participate in the fun. 

    As to injuries to the suspect, I have seen a number of demonstrations of police K9 units, and talked to several handler officers. The dogs are trained to bite and hold, and apparently to bite only hard enough to hold on. They are trained not to shred, chew, or otherwise mangle the target. Most injuries suffered by suspects are due to the suspect fighting back against the dog. A suspect taken down by a police dog is probably going to be less injured than a suspect taken down by most other techniques for subduing a suspect.

    Laughter is often the best stress reliever, as well as the best medicine.
