I’ll Bet You Didn’t Know THIS.

Seems like since Obama has come along, we’ve heard that EVERYTHING white is racist.

Well, folks, hang on, because now the leftists are after Man’s Best Friend.

‘Racist’ LA police dogs only bite Latinos and African-Americans.

I’m a racist, he’s a racist, she’s a racist, you’re a racist, and, apparently, Fido is too.

Police officers in Los Angeles have long faced accusations of institutional racism, but now it appears their dogs may be unjustly discriminatory, too.

A new report focusing on the Canine Special Detail of the LA Sherriff’s Department (LASD) has uncovered a vast increase in the number of minority individuals bitten by police dogs since 2004.

And in the first six months of this year, every single victim of a bite by a LASD dog was African-American or Latino.The data was published in a new report by the Police Assessment Resource Centre (Parc), a Los Angeles-based non-profit organisation, devoted to “advancing effective and accountable policing”.

According to Parc records, the number of Latino individuals bitten by LASD canines went up 30 per cent between 2004 and 2012, from 30 to 39 bites. The number of African-Americans bitten increased by 33 per cent over the same period.

Meanwhile, police dog bites caused injuries at a much higher rate than alternative deterrents such as batons, tear gas and even guns. “Large swathes of LASD’s jurisdiction, encompassing generally affluent areas with smaller minority populations, had few [canine] deployments or bites,” the Parc report states.

“Crime rates are lower in these areas, but the stark disparity leads us to wonder why canine deployments seem to occur disproportionately in less affluent areas with larger minority populations.” During the period covered in the report, the largely black or Latino areas of Century, City of Industry, Compton, Lakewood and South LA/Lennox suffered more dog bites than all of LASD’s other 21 districts combined.

A recent investigation by the US Department of Justice also found that in areas policed by the LASD, “African Americans, and to a lesser extent Latinos, are more likely to be stopped and/or searched than whites, even when controlling for factors other than race, such as crime rates.”

The authors of the Parc report recommended that the LASD work on improving its canine-deployment policies, and keep track of the enforcement activities of individual dogs and their handlers. In 2004, a Pennsylvania police dog named Dolpho was suspended from duty, after the German Shepherd displayed a propensity for biting black children.

During the 1980s, some Los Angeles police officers would allegedly refer to black youths as “dog biscuits”.

According to ThinkProgress, Bruce Chase, the officer in charge of the LASD canine unit, said his department intends to reduce the ratio of bites to arrests, a measurement used to gauge the effectiveness of the unit.

Just when you think the left can’t get any loonier, this.

Since the overwhelming majority of L.A. County IS black, and latino, HOW the HELL is the DOG supposed to count his “quota” of bites to these groups? Last I knew, while German  Shepherds ARE more intelligent than the average “citizen” of the area in question, the poor pooch STILL can’t count.

What, would the leftist communistic bastards at Think Progress (run by Clinton’s former chief of staff, John Podesta and funded by Soros) rather the cops SHOOT said minorities while committing their crimes, or being arrested for said crimes?

I think THAT is the answer. I love dogs a lot. I sure would hate to see a valiant police dog die of some disease one of these scumbags may carry. Let the dog find the perp, then just shoot him, before the poor cur can get a bite of the vermin.

    “Dog Biscuits”….bwahahahahaha…

    Seriously… it looks as if the left has run out things to bitch about. Now this. They really are nuts.

    Back during the Selma march. Anyone remember the picture in Life Magazine of the cop holding a police dog who was lunging against its leash, teeth bared?
    Well, at the time a real reporter said the picture was staged. The cameraman was waiting while a protestor baited the dog to make him do that.
    They have been bad mouthing police dogs (maybe the ONLY totally honest cops) since the police started using dogs.

    Stupid. Can it get any more stupid? Thanx for getting this to us, Clyde!

    > “Since the overwhelming majority of L.A. County IS black, and latino …” Indeed. My husband person was brought up on charges of ‘targeting blacks’ at one point. He patrolled an area that was 99% occupied by blacks. He was exonerated, of course.

    Stupid people …

      Mrs. Al, just when we think liberals cannot POSSIBLY be any dumber, we read shit like this. While seemingly impossible, NEVER underestimate the left’s ability to be even dumber tomorrow. Thanks for the comment.

  5. Dogs can “smell” what kind of person an individual is. Race doesn’t really enter into a dog’s paradigm. Rather, the mental attitude of an individual is more readily read by a dog, horse, cat, even a rabbit~!, than by another human. I’ll rely on an animal’s instinct before I will a humans words~!

    The unending looniness of the left amazes me. Did it never occur to them the reason for those percentages is because the blacks and latinos are committing more crimes than whites? Sheesh!

  7. bullright says:

    Now that we know what the Dep of injustice and think progress are studying…. Good grief, Charlie Brown. It’s alright if America actually goes to the dogs, just don’t let them bite. The guys can run guns across the border and they’re disturbed by dog bites?!

    ALL: Just had a thought. When Sharpton and Jackson find out about this, wait for them to shake down Purina and Alpo in 3…..2…..1
